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 the shirt with the triangles. And her hair is so pretty!

I always wanted to ask this. . . The surgical masks I see in a lot of Japan street fashion shots—is that a style item? Or are there some kinds of polite (or health) concerns behind wearing them?

The triangles are cool!
@GwenMyst: As far as i know they wear them because of the pollen,when they’re sick, even if its just a slight cold, and some I guess for fashion.
But I’m pretty sure thre are others who know better than me. :)

@GnewMyst & Nyurah: There are several reasons to wear masks. Most people wear them because they have a cold and don’t want to spread it to other people. Japanese usually are very considerate of the needs of others. Some people do indeed wear them because they have a pollen allergy. And recently an increasing number of people wear them as a fashion statement. That’s why more and more masks feature some kind of design.

@Kjeld: Thank you very much for the more detailed information. Seems like I wasn’t all wrong after all * puh * ^^
I have to admit that I acually like these masks, they’re useful and look cool

@KD & Nyurah: masks make eyes get all the attention, that is very attractive ^^

@Maria: Yup, and it somehow looks a little mystrious.
