Kjeld Duits About the Photographer

Inspired by the stunningly creative street fashion that exploded on the streets of Tokyo and Osaka in the late 1990’s, photo-journalist Kjeld Duits launched JAPANESE STREETS in 2002. This makes JS one of the first fashion blogs on the net, and the very first to cover Japanese street fashion.

I love her socks and her shoes! I’d really like to be able to pull that off! I also absolutely adore her hair, it compliments her big brown eyes perfectly!

@Mel: I also thought she had great eyes!

@KD: Yes I do like her style! A lot! Of course, I don’t like it for myself n_n’‘

@Maria: Great to hear you like it, Maria. I hope I can find some styles that you like for yourself as well. Have there been some styles like that on JS recently?

Well, most of the styles in JS are very different one from the other, but the colors reminds me of Yuko and a little bit to ChigHa.
Lately cream is one of the colors I see more often here in JS.
Seems like vintage is taking control :P

@Maria: Yes, good observation, vintage and Dolly Kei (like ChigHa) are becoming increasingly popular. Mori Girl can still be found, too. And yes, we try to cast our net as wide as possible when it comes to styles. That’s actually what I like best about Japanese fashion, the huge range of styles.

I love how everything is so perfectly chosen, even the accents on the nails and the phone charm !
The details on each outfit is what makes them so special :3

@MELMEL: It’s the immense attention to details that makes Japanese fashion so special. I am often in awe of the detail.
