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.

Cool! Traditional japanese clothing mixed with modern style.
I always love to see these kinds of combinations! I think it’s sad you don’t see that more often..
Really lovely look!

@Nyurah: Are you familiar with Takuya Angel?

Thank you, Val.

For those not familiar with the term oiran obi, Japanese prostitutes in days gone by wore their kimono so they could easily take it off, with the knot of the obi at the front instead of the back. In some cases merely a sash was used, like Senna did above. On this image from the MejiShowa site you can see an example:

I very much doubt that Senna is aware of this old custom, though…

@Valerie: I will post three short ones, if you don’t mind; long comments break up the front pages… ^^

@Valerie: Thank you for your nice words about my work, Valerie. Totally agree with the influence of Japanese culture—both traditional (kimono, yukata, shibori, ukiyoe, etc) and modern (manga, anime, music, etc)—on Japanese street fashion. Certainly, many people are barely aware of it themselves what they have been influenced by.

By the way, crosses and Christian symbols have been sold by Bunkaya Zakaten for at least two decades, long before the Virgin Mary or Grimoire existed. But shops like the Virgin Mary, Grimoire and Nadia have undoubtedly helped to increase their popularity. ^^

@Valerie: Later this month I hope to be able to make some time. Let’s set it up then. ^^
@Nyurah: Glad you like it! We’ll have to do this more often. ^_-
