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.

It’s an eccentric look, that’s for sure! :) I’m noticing this type of hairstyle popping up a lot lately and I think it looks good on him. The button earring is cool though I’d be afraid to wear on just incase it got snagged on something

@Bree: Yes, variations on this hairstyle are very common. It reminds me a little bit, but just a bit, of the Beatles Look of the 60s.

Just curious, were Kazuhei and Enoki hanging out together? They are a bit similar..And I can definitely see a bit of a Beatles reference with the hair. I’ve noticed a lot of the hairstyles like this are shaved or cut much shorter on the sides, but the top hangs over sometimes..Kind of a 90’s chilli bowl influenced mixed in too I think. Too me, last time when I went to Harajuku, a lot of 90’s fashion was already back in style for the mainstream. And I mean like mid 90’s, post New Wave/neon. Lots of small florals, hiking boots, jansport backpacks..It was the same with the haircuts. Of course it was a Japanese/modern twist, which made it cool. It looked like a bit like fashion on the movie Beethoven, but much more fashionable. Ha

@Lactose Intoler-Art: Yes, Kazuhei and Enoki were indeed hanging out together. Good call. Yes, you see lots of long bangs at the moment, often even covering the eyes. Haven’t seen that for a while. I will have to watch Beethoven again!

@Maria: Very true about the art is in the details. That is actually one of the most important aspects of Japanese fashion I think, the enormous attention to detail. Next comes layering. Then a combination of textures, design and color that is influenced by hundreds of years of wearing kimono and yukata, very different from the aesthetic of Western clothing. And for street fashion of course the huge influence of manga and anime.

@Maria: I don’t think cosplay has really influenced Japanese street fashion much. They are very separate, and people who are into fashion here don’t really favor cosplay much.

@KD: Really? Well, then maybe it is the other way round?
I read various mangas with fashion styles on their characters that look like some street shots n_n’‘

May 22, 2011 (4214 days ago)

@Maria: Yes, manga and anime definitely inspire street fashion. And cosplayers of course dress up like anima and mange characters. So street fashion and cosplay both are influenced by anime and manga, but in different ways and to a different extent.

@Kjeld-Yes, I would agree..They can influence each other, but its very different. It’s been interesting meeting people that assume that everyone in Japan likes manga and anime or video games..Or that cosplay is super mainstream. Its just like anywhere else..It depends on the person, and different people are into different things. But I could even see how some fashionable people would think it is a bit uncool to incorporate anime or manga into their style..But then you always have the really interesting kids who make the “uncool cool”..Kind of like a lot of the “The Virgin Mary” wearing type girls incorporating pikachu, Sailor moon, etc into their style.

Question: why does he wear skirt? I noticed some of these fashionable prefer
skirt, that’s I am asking…

@Mimzy: I think every man wearing a skirt has his own reason. Some wear it becomes it looks cool, some because it is comfy, others have other reasons.
