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 totally adore the color scheme of her yukata/kimono. It suits her perfectly.

i love contemporary adaptions of the kimono and this girl owns it! her playful obi is so cheeky (in a good way) and the pairing of textile patterns is pure genius. the simplicity of her hair style and make-up really complement the natural and yet very edgy and mod harmony going on here. thanks for sharing!

@Jam @icoSnap & tokyo up: It is still relatively rare to see people in a modern kimono and obi like Rie is wearing and I wish more would do so. I have always believed that the exposure to kimono, with its amazing combinations of textile patterns, colors and texture, allows Japanese people to come up with their unique sense of style in street fashion.

Wow, i’d absolutely agree with you! Layering, textiles and textures on Tokyo streets are wild. I also love the way Japanese style integrates innovative silhouettes – their experimentation with the pattern making process and their penchant for draping is incredible. I wonder how much the flat patterned kimono has influenced/inspired pushing the boundaries of construction methods as well.
