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 his style! Very comfy-cool

I was gonna say something really similar! Its really casual, but its still really cool! And I like how he tied that type of hoodie into his style. I’ve seen some kids trying to bring back that same style grunge hoodie in a way here, but they do not do it justice like this guy. Once again I see a new way to wear an item that was uncool/unconventional in my eyes.

I’ve turned into one of those kids that goes to the thrift stores now like a challenge. How can I make this dasai piece of clothing unique or interesting??

@Lactose Intoler-Art: Yes, that always amazes me. How the people I photograph take something that your oh so unfashionable aunt used to wear in the 70s and make it look cool.

oh my gosh! i LOVE him! he looks SO cool and is to me, like many other Japanese people i see here on this website, someone who could fit in here in america in new york, or something like that….
@lactose: i fully agree. this weekend i am keeping my fingers crossed for being able to go to a thrift store…i want to see if i can take oversized man shirts and long granny skirts and see if i can make them look cool…both here in america and in japan, i see a lot of full length skirts in trend, so…

@Etsune: Did you already watch the video clip on The Fairy Tale Style of Dolly Kei? The way Nomura finds, alters and combines vintage clothing is very inspiring.

No, I did not…I started watching it, but i won’t be able to finish it because of loading and length. Thank you SO MUCH for that, though! I’m saving it so I can finish it tomorrow!

@Etsune: Enjoy!

@Etsune-You should totally do it! But its a bit harder to rock certain styles in the states from my experience, especially when compared to Tokyo. There’s a lot more common support there!

@Lactose: Hopefully, I will. But I know exactly what you are talking about…
You see, on Thursday, I had to present an economics project. We had to make our own hypothetical business. Mine was a clothing boutique called Kaptain Kawaii that had asian style clothing and featured the Japanese fashion remakeover technique and other things. Since it was Japanese style, I went bold and decided to wear a mori girl outfit…. but it worked out well, because most people said it looked cute ^^
Generally, i DO dress out of the norm for what’s worn in the states anyway, but even THAT was out there for me. I find that there isn’t really anyone else at the school who dresses in the same way I do, but people generally don’t stare at me like I’m weird (though I likely draw more attention than the average student at my school). But maybe its easier for me to wear other things because I’m a female? What styles have you tried in your experiences, and how did people react? Now, i am curious…

It’s nothing crazy but it’s well put together, it’s an outfit that i can see thought put into but at the same time it’s something you can throw on and it’ll look good, i would def wear this. Stripes on the shirt and sweater make it really pop out but at the same time the grey and brown make it easy on the eyes and his hair just brings it all together, cool bag too. Though the sleeve length and hat make it look too boy-ish
