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.

I also own a similar IW dress and also wear it casual sometimes!

I love this look, it’s so cute. And Yu has a really cute face. I love the ‘Europe’ bag.

OH I really like this! And Yu has give me ideas now for my own closet. I kinda wanted to add Lolita like outfits to my wardrobe. But I live in NYC (and despite the magazine quotes, we’re not THAT fashion forward) so a full on Lolita “look” would never be exactly practical here, I just wanted cute—but not “juvenile” (I do have to work LOL!) This is PERFECT though, and just the type of something I can try without half of the Big Apple staring and pointing (or WORSE think I’m in a costume).

She’s a doll! So cute!

@Leyla: I really like the IW creations, they look like they’re easy to combine with other items.
@Larissa & Maria: Yes, Yu’s super cute. Her short stature amplifies her cuteness a lot.
@GnewMyst: Cool. Keep us posted how it goes. ^_-

I love this so much! It makes me happy to see cute lolita fashion with a more mainstream look! My 16-year-old daughter is always dressing up in all sorts of adorable lolita-inspired outfits that I think are so much fun and just cute cute cute, but it’s much easier to get away with that when you’re a young student. Yu’s look here gives me hope!

@Lily: Please check out the Innocent World online shop. Maybe your daughter can find something she likes. Full disclosure: we have no relationship, financial or other, with IW whatsoever.

I like her shoes, they have such a nice form (and cute ribbon)
@Lily: you seem to be quite a cool mother^^

hmmm… lately I have a brutal internal dilema. More and more I learn that Japanese females look at you as a weirdo or a pervert if you say you like lolita fashion. Same about anime and otakus. I know how Otaku people are viewed in Japan, so don’t need to explain. Also, one particular Japanese friend of mine (female) explained that she understands that only small percentage of otaku are weirdos but she didn’t look very convincing. The point is, when I see a lolita fashion or watch cute anime video recently(normal one, like Touhou) i feel uncomfortable. It’s really uncomfortable. I’m kind of confused. Any help?

Jun 10, 2012 (4275 days ago)

This is absolutely my look <3 i love the bag and the shoes!

Jun 10, 2012 (4275 days ago)

She looks too cute like a doll!

@Äwe, Kristi D. Jones: Glad you like Yu’s look.

@Martin: I don’t know what kind of Japanese people you meet, but perhaps they are all very conservative or very opinionated? The people around me have no trouble with lolita fashion at all. And the Japanese government is even trying to promote it abroad. Also, I think you should decide for yourself what matters to you: what you like, or what others like. If you let yourself being lead by what others think of you it is very difficult to be yourself, and to be truly happy. If some people can’t accept that, it’s their loss. Besides, why would you want to spend time with people who can’t accept you as you are? Or others as they are… Better to have positive, understanding and open-minded people around you.
