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.

It’s the second time I see ordinary looking sneakers which actually have those super thick heels. I really like them ..

@Lia & Lyndranette: I have the feeling that thick soles are making a comeback. We barely saw them for a few years, but in the past few weeks I saw a lot of them. Funny that you have the exact same ones, Lyndranette!

@Kjeld! Yes! I have noticed this is also a trend I think that is coming back in Tokyo though! For me it seems to have kind of started out by those kids that go by the philosophy “uncool is cool.” I think the last time super high platforms were really popular was in the late 90’s, early 00’s era, so to a lot of people right now those clothes are really outdated. What’s interesting though is that these kids are often trend setters, and anti-fashion is taken to the next level, and before you know it kids everywhere are wearing the higher platforms because the fashion designers have caught on.

@Lactose Intoler-Art: It’s going to be very interesting where this trend takes us. I am curious, how long for other people catch on?

I love her shirt, the design reminds me of a printed bustier of sorts, but it’s not vulgar and quite chic. Lovely hair, and the deep raspberry colour is great, too.

Funny thing, Vans is trying to push the thick soled shoe, much like the ones here. The latest season I’ve seen is/was Summer 2011. I like them, and they’re grungy vibe, but many in the Midwest (like the boutique I work for) don’t :/

@petitesam: Very interesting to hear that many people in the Midwest don’t like the thick soled shoes. Wonder how they’re received in other areas.

@Kjeld I don’t think the trend will take that long to spread around here (Bulgaria), as I’m pulling out of the drawer my own monster platforms from 7th grade (yeah, I was allowed to wear “outrageous” clothes/shoes even that young lol) right now. Most of my friends follow my style anyway, so you’ve got BG sorted out ..

Is that a top and a skirt or a dress? Because if it’s a top and a skirt, kudos to the lady…

@Mel: Mitobe is wearing a blouse and a skirt.

This outfit is so cute! The pattern on the shirt is REALLY amazing, especially with the subtle gold in it! And I love the skirt. This is a really cute and edgy outfit! It’s so cool, and something I’d feel comfortable wearing. Her phone is kinda cool too. It seems that Asian phones, even if they’re simpler than a touch screen, full keyboard phone sold in America, are MUCH cooler looking than our phones.

Her hands say a lot – effortless, knowing, cool.
