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.

Love it! Some of the pieces do strike me as almost a little too far on the “safe” side, but they are all certainly flattering and wearable, and juuuust enough off the line of what you’d expect for color combinations with these vintage-and-lingerie-inspired shapes. I’d wear ‘em if I had the money.

This is one of those reaaally weird moments when I fall in love with yellow :3
Asymmetry and symmetry perfectly mixed with delicate details…

@Leah B.: JUNYA TASHIRO’S designs are always very soft and gentle. They are feminine in the Japanese way; like kimono and yukata, they enhance the wearer’s look without accentuating the body line, and without even a whiff of sexiness. They are perfect for the Asian body type. Perhaps, that is the aspect that you experienced as safe, Leah? I really liked your comparing them to lingerie. I hadn’t thought of that, because I was thinking of the influence of traditional Japanese clothing, but with their straight lines they do remind one of lingerie, don’t they?

@Maria: I was amazed at this particular shade of yellow and how subtly Tashiro incorporated it into his designs. Love it!

Kjeld, I think you nailed it. I was unfamiliar with this designer before I saw this collection. Have done some more reading up on him, and checked out some past collections. He’s definitely on my to-watch list from now on. :)

I love the collection, but I think some of these models are way too thin, it’s actually distracting from the collection itself :(

@Anya: Don’t forget though that a lot of Japanese (and other Asian) women naturally have a body build like this—straight lines, few curves, fairly flat chests, buttocks and hips—and Junya Tashira’s collection is specifically designed for their needs. The different Japanese body becomes very obvious when you only look at the women we have photographed on the street; these are not models.
