Which colors on Japan’s streets, or catwalks, are hot?

For each person that we shoot on the streets, we select the color in the outfit that presents the main accent. On the front page we show a table of the colors of the last 20 people. It offers you a quick look into what colors are hot on Japan’s streets this very moment.

During the Japan Fashion Week, held in Spring and Autumn, we do the same for one of the outfits in each show. This gives you an instant picture of what colors designers think will be popular in the next season.

On this page you can see an evolving snap shot of these color trends organized by month. It shows you how the colors change and evolve throughout the year.

Put you finger on Japan’s color pulse, bookmark this page and visit it regularly.

You can also access this page from the front page; just click on the Latest Colors header. It is the same as this header:

Kjeld Duits About the Author

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.

THANKS! I thought it would be cool to see what colors are hot and how they’re changing throughout the year. I am really happy that you like it.

I too get a ‘sign-in’ pop-up on the colours page…not on any other page on this website though, only the colours.
Fascinating to see the street fashion. One question though…in Tokyo there are lots of gaijin (models, students, etc)…maybe someday you could have some photos of their fashion too? Keep up the good work! :-)

Hi TorontoViewer, thanks for the tip on the page that gave the login message. Mystery solved and I have fixed the problem. I am sure a few more bugs will pop up over the next few days. I hope they can be solved just as quickly!

In regards to gaijin. We usually only shoot Japanese, because we want to show Japanese fashion. But who knows? If Japan-based foreigners develop a look that can only be seen in Japan and if there is interest, this might be a policy we could change.
