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.

@Andrea: I had a look in the store of our sponsor Rakuten. They have lots of leggings. I couldn’t find the ones that Ayami wears in the first 5 pages of the search results for leggings, but they may have them. If not, I am sure you’ll find some other cool stuff.

Is it my imagination or do some of these ladies look/dress like geishas of the past, in a modern sense.

what I mean is,the kimono was and still is a beautiful fashion statement. in some respects, these cloths represent a new fashion statement albeit a modern one.

@Steve: I see what you mean with the fashion aspect of a Geisha’s kimono. As you know, a Geisha is a highly accomplished entertainer, musician and dancer, and each kimono represents a large business investment to a Geisha. So perhaps, it is a bit difficult to compare that with people who dress up for fun, and who want to feel comfortable in their clothes. But if you are thinking of the past role of Geisha as fashion leaders (although usually it was high-ranked Taiyu prostitutes who performed that role), they could be compared with what Japanese people call “Charisma” sales assistants, beauticians, designers, and so on. These are the fashion leaders of today. People like Heri of the fashion boutique Grimoire, or Angelic Pretty designer Makiko Asano, better known as Maki.

I have seen that dress currently being sold in Singapore for SIN$23, aproximately $1600 YEN.

@Daphne: No kidding! That is incredibly cheap, too. Maybe that’s why Ayami forgot the price…?
