As it was difficult to make out what was belt and what was skirt, I asked Yutsuki to show me.
She was so kind to take the belt off. Notice the thumb of her right hand, that is the top of the belt.

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.

How wonderful to see such a complex and beautiful outfit! Not that the last few shots are any less amazing, but the intensity of detail is superb… my favorite parts are the hat and her belt, which seems to be fitting since Yutsuki is the designer. I also highly appreciate her layering techniques in the skirts and her blouse. Nice shot, Kjeld!

Dolly-kei can be a really intriguing fashion! It relies heavily upon the creativity of the person wearing the clothes rather than the clothes themselves. Not only that, I have never seen dolly-kei that I didn’t like!

I agree with @petitesam …This one is REALLY great, there is SO much creativity behind it.
@Kjeld-Do you know if she happens to sell at “The Virgin Mary” or “Grimoire?” I’m pretty sure at least “The Virgin Mary” carries independant designers that do stuff like this. Her work is so relevant to those shops. REALLY great!!!!

@petitesam: Thanks. Yutsuki was very shy so it was quite difficult to shoot her. She created her brand with a friend. Her photos will go live tomorrow (9/24/2010).

@Arc: I really like Dolly-kei. It has been around for several years already, but these days I see more and more people wearing it. I wonder how it will develop and whether it has staying power.

@Lactose Intoler-Art: Yutsuki told me that they did indeed sell at a few shops, and on the net. Forgot to confirm the names of the shops… I’d say that both The Virgin Mary and Grimoire are very likely.

Glad you all like these images so much. I am sure that you will love tomorrow’s shots, too!

Wow i love the fur in her hair. She looks like a fairy-princess.(just like that lego-thing)

@Jo: It does look like Yutsuki stepped straight out of a fairy tale, doesn’t it?
