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.

Really interesting! I love the other shots you took of him as well. My favorite has to be the one where he was wearing the “HIRO” shorts. I looked back and thought “Where do you get shorts like that??” Then I remembered the old comments..Haha.

But back to THESE photos..He is definitely doing his own thing. I don’t know nearly as much as traditional Japanese history/fashion, but I feel like one of my best friends had some kind of thing he wore after taking a shower that was kind of like this look. Like a traditional Japanese bathrobe maybe? I don’t know. Maybe its the way the wrapping of his top is, and the headband. Its like a modern twist on the traditional. Or not? Maybe I just don’t get traditional style. haha. Interesting either way.

@Lactose Intoler-Art: Now you mention it, it does look a little like a haori coat or a yukata.

You know, I really like this guy. I never realized that I’d seen him in two photos until I saw him, looked at his face, and thought, “hey, i’ve seen him before…”. I really love the mix of neutrals, and the use of the pink shirt underneath…it stands out among the boyishness of the entire outfit… I also love his shoes (that zipper on the front is so cool!)… And I have to say, he is a VERY handsome guy!

Hi Etsune! Long time no speak. I was wondering what happened to you. I will tell Kazuya when I meet him next time about your nice words. I see him regularly when I go shooting and he studies at the same fashion school as my assistant Anzu. Another marriage proposal coming up, perhaps? ^_-

@Kjeld: Hello! I appreciate the warm greeting so greatly! Thank you :D
Anyway, school is what happened to me lol…its just that since I am in 11th grade and will be graduating next year, I am preparing with college visits, SAT/ACT prep, etc. Not to mention that Pre-Calculus is kicking my but…
Anyway, thank you for playing messenger. I kinda like thinking that I say things that could make someone smile when they hear it through you :D
And yeah, if things don’t work out with Aran and I, Kazuya is definitely in my thoughts!

@Etsune: Wish you could heard me laugh here when I read if things don’t work out with Aran and I! You’re a blast.

@Kjeld: Hahahah, thank you! I have a big smile on my face, now! It feels good to know that you’ve amused someone (that is, unless you’ve amused them by doing something embarrassing, like tripping….which i do often. but anyway.) :DD

@Etsune: I love your little mix-ups. I will call them home made panda events from now on. ^_-

@Etsune: Haha, I won’t let you. ^_- No, seriously, they are very disarming and charming.

Wow ! , I fell in love with his style at the first glance :)

Wow I really like his style! The layering effect can be overbearing sometimes, but with neutrals it works very well on him. And he’s just so cute- makes me want to buy a plane ticket this minute! :)
