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.

She looks like a doll! I love the mix of girly with rock, very cool, also her shoes are the most amazing shoes I’ve ever seen! >_<

I’m very curious about “Rio“s t shirt: what exactly does it say (the close-up picture, its bunched-up)? and, does it have any personal meaning for her???

@SHOGOxo: I have seen Hirari Ikeda wear shoes like this, although I haven’t shot her yet in them. Cool, eh!

@Jeannee: I’m afraid that I didn’t pay attention to the text, and I’m quite sure that Rio didn’t either. It’s my experience that Japanese people rarely know the meaning of the foreign text on their t-shirts and bags. So, I don’t think it’s personal. After all, only 1% of Japanese are Christians, and most of them are elderly.

@KD: If she doesn’t know the meaning then she bought the shirt because of the sleeves, they are pretty ^^ The bag is really cool too!
I love the second shot, she looks like a red haired angel :3

I’m almost sure the shoes are the Litas by Jeffery Campbell. The brand isn’t too old and they’re pretty popular here in the U.S.

I met Rio again and asked if she knew the meaning of the text on her t-shirt, and whether she was Christian. The answers to both questions were “no.”

The necklace she is wearing seems to be quite popular too in Japan..
I think thats quite funny because 10 years ago everyone here had one like that too. But now you rarely see someone with one. Although I kept mine. :)

@Nyurah: Necklace? Do you mean bracelet?

@Kjeld: Well the black thing she’s wearing around her neck. Is it called a bracelet?

Aug 17, 2012 (4058 days ago)

@Nyurah: Oh, I missed that completely. Didn’t even take a close-up of it…

@Kjeld: Don’t bother it’s still well visible. Rio is wearing the same kind of necklace as aoi. Except that rio added a cross. :)

@Nyurah; Yes, I have seen a few of these already. Also used as bracelets or anklets.
