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.

Did the models switch poses on the escalator while coming down, or were they still the entire time?

@Sierra: They were basically still all the time. They started looking down when they came close to the end of the escalator. I really liked the idea of incorporating an escalator into a fashion show. Too bad that the lighting was awful (as is often the case at Japanese fashion shows…).

A few of the pieces are quite good, like the short top and a couple of pairs of shorts. But most are difficult clothes for girls. The models are good, with great legs, which helped the show. I’m from Europe and I don’t know what the weather is like in Osaka, but looking it up on the web, it does get cold in winter, so………..

I LOVE Nozomi Ishiguro. The clothes are amazing up close. I feel like the brand usually incorporates more color though, and I don’t remember as many crop/belly tops? I think it just depends how someone wants to wear it. But the first picture of the girl coming down the escalator is simply amazing. I really looked at the clothes up close for the first time at LaForet this summer, and there was SOOO much detail that photos can’t even capture.

@akiko & Lactose Intoler-Art: I must admit I wasn’t really very familiar with Nozomi Ishiguro’s work. He is overlooked a lot, and I don’t encounter his clothes very often, so I was happily surprised with this show. As you say, Lactose Intoler-Art, the detail is indeed amazing.

@akiko: Even in Hokkaido, with weather like in Alasaka, there are many young women who wear short skirts in winter. Osaka’s weather is actually comparable to the weather in southern Spain, or northern Africa, temperature-wise. Yesterday it was about 27 degrees centigrade. So these clothes are quite comfortable for autumn here, and when it gets colder, you would wear a nice warm coat over everything. Even in Tokyo, 500 km north of Osaka, the weather doesn’t really get that cold. Tokyo is a lot similar to Paris, I’d say. Cold, but nothing like the weather in northern Europe or the Alps.

Thanks Kjeld! I was curious since I’ve never seen an escalator incoorporated before :) I see what you mean with the lighting…what a shame! I like the use of beads and tweed, each model really has a totally different style. Interesting indeed :)

love it! the looks are very mystical but also very wearable so you can stand you in an everyday setting. would love to see more from this designer.

Thanks for the comments. I am familiar with the ideas behind fashion shows as my daughter is a designer, and I am on the retail side. I asked about the weather because on this side of the planet it plays an important part on how girls dress. That is, in the autumn/winter season although the weather may be similar to Osaka here, (which is Madrid, by the way), a little less humidity perhaps, girls will cover themselves up. Valerie, I agree that the Chanel style jacket is good, the short top that goes with it, the shorts on the first model and the white-ish top are also very good. Although the style is a mix of gypsy/romantic line, the clothes are for a certain type of client. One that is quite sophisticated. They would work very well in London, for the Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Mayfair croud.
I just happened to mention the models, as they look great and………I find Japanese women interesting.

considering this is the first time i’ve seen this particular designer, i am amazed at the attention to detail and construction that they have put into these clothes. it’s as if someone cared immensely how someone would feel in these clothes rather than just how they looked or fit. real respect is shown in the way fabric and construction is treated. i love it.

Oct 9, 2010 (4802 days ago)

WOW! The only thing I can say is that they ALL LOOK SO INCREDIBLE!! It’s like destroyed sophistication!

Oct 9, 2010 (4802 days ago)

Love it :) The collection makes me think of Chanel on acid, perhaps, but it is beautiful in it’s own right.

Love this look! What a great blog!
