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.

Hi! I’m new to the blog. I wanted to ask, who’s the model in the pic before the jump?

At first, I was kind of iffy about this collection. And to be honest, I still am. But then I realized that different designers reach different audiences, and that not all of Japan dresses super wild. There are some parts of the collection that I like, and others that I don’t necessarily not like, but just aren’t as vivid and eyegrabbing as other collections are and can be. However, I do like the fact that most of the male models here are super hot, and I like how some of the outfits shown are sort of inspirational. plus, I love the look on the designers face as he’s receiving the flowers. Precious!

@Ridz: I am not sure I understand which picture you mean. Can you give the number? (If you are using WIndows, you can see the number when you hover your cursor over the photo).

@Etsune: I share your feelings. It was a little too quiet and subdued for a fashion show. This is what you expect to see in a shop, not on a runway. I felt the visuals weren’t strong enough to get the designer’s message across. But I did like that Matsunaga only used Japanese models. Out of financial constraints, I am sure, but it was still good to see.

I am glad I was able to catch Yuma Matsunaga’s expression when he received the flowers!

i LOVE how he used only Japanese models!
I didn’t want to say it at first, but i COMPLETELY love the fact that he does
Because every time you see fashion shows, there are only (or mostly) foreigners. And it gets annoying from time to time, because I’d like to see the use of the Japanese also! It never even crossed my mind that there would only be all japanese models because of financial constraints.

I don’t have windows, but it’s the first picture, with the model in the black shirt with the silver embellishments on the shoulders, and the gray pants.
