Kjeld Duits: @Lactose Intoler-Art: You can use this link to our affiliate store; it displays uniform hats for sale on eBay.
Lactose Intoler-Art: I agree! (I thought I already commented on this, must have forgotten to push submit). This is a GREAT idea. Thanks for finding stuff that is relevant in Harajuku that isn’t just “Takeshita-dori kei,” if you know what I mean, haha. I put one of these on my watch items already! What did you usually search to find these hats for later reference when these disappear?


Are You Hangry & Angry?

May 11 2010: A stuffed animal transformed into a nuclear bomb to destroy the world. A hospital from which patients leave in coffins. Welcome to the world of Japanese designer Gashicon

Kjeld Duits: @Julia: Actually, I always thought the two characters were genderless. During the many hours that I spoke with Gashicon, she never ever said he or she when referring to Hangry and Angry. She was extremely careful to use genderless expressions. Unfortunately, in English you do have to choose a gender, so I ended up using he. Unless you are talking about the singers Hangry and Angry of course. They are clearly girls. Anyway, next time I meet Gashicon I will ask her about the gender of these two characters.
Teretetetet: Inspiring!! Thanks for bringing us fantastic interviews!!

Traditional Japanese Colors - More

May 09 2010: The resurgent popularity of kimono has given traditional Japanese colors new life. They are absolutely magnificent. Here is a list

Kjeld Duits: @cleawalford: Glad you liked it! There are no colors left to cover, so it had to come to an end. There are still more articles in the pipeline about traditional colors, though!
cleawalford: oooohhhhh, the last list? what a pity!


Harajuku - An Introduction

May 07 2010: A brief introduction to Harajuku, Japan’s center of youth culture and street fashion.

Kjeld Duits: @HaasiD: Excellent idea. Make sure to visit Tokyo Bopper!
HaasiD: I swear, I am dropping by someday to stock up on shoes alone.
Kjeld Duits: @Keekii: Yes, it is great fun!

Traditional Japanese Colors - Purples

May 02 2010: The resurgent popularity of kimono has given traditional Japanese colors new life. They are absolutely magnificent. Here is a list

Kjeld Duits: @SnowFoxCreations: Thank you. I must admit that I am not familiar with Asaki Murasaki. I couldn’t find it in the dictionary, and found just one reliable looking source on the internet. It looks like Benimurasaki (紅紫) to me.
SnowFoxCreations: Wonderful list! I love that you included the hexadecimal values for the murasaki colors, as well. One thing- I couldn’t find “asaki murasaki” on the list. Is it not making a resurgence, or is it just translated a different way? :? It’s a bit similar to ayame-iro, but I recall it being a different shade.


Color on the Street: Black

Apr 26 2010: We saw lots of black and grey in the A/W collections of the Japan Fashion Week. Recently we see the same trend on the street

Kjeld Duits: LOL, that is funny Jini. But that should make it easy for you to make some nice combinations of an outstanding color with black.
Jini: *noticed haha and you think so? I think black is safe, so also easy. But I too, hope that black with an outstanding colour will become a trend, because my closet is filled with colour…weird for someone who loves black eh?
Kjeld Duits: @Jini: I think black with an outstanding color is really cool, but it is not so easy to pull it off. I am really looking forward to this autumn and winter; hope people will make this trend happen!


Traditional Japanese Colors - Blues

Apr 25 2010: The resurgent popularity of kimono has given traditional Japanese colors new life. They are absolutely magnificent. Here is a list

Kjeld Duits: @Clea: This clearly is an issue that is not limited to Japan as Callisto showed with his link to the Wikipedia article above. Interestingly, Mizuasagi contains the Japanese word for water, mizu, something that in the West is usually described as blue, but occasionally also as green…
Clea Walford: Thank you again for the wonderful colors! I agree that most of the colors look blue to me, but have my difficulties with the first ones (Mizuasagi (水浅葱) #80aba9 – Sabitetsuonando (錆鉄御納戸) #485859) and Nandoiro (納戸色) #008899 looks quite greenish to me.
Kjeld Duits: @kagitsune: Thanks. To tell you the truth, quite a few colors on this page do not look blue in my eyes. The top colors through Sabionando, as well as Kamenozoki, Byakugun, Nandoiro, Asagiiro(!) and Shinbashiiro actually look green to me… And I feel that many colors on the bottom are also not really variations of blue. I have often noticed that my idea of blue is quite different from that of Japanese people. After reading the Wikipedia article that Callisto introduced, I wonder if my views are influenced by my upbringing in the Netherlands and may actually be different from many other cultures as well…


Your iPhone in Japanese Dress

Apr 24 2010: In spite of a slow start, the iPhone is now Japan’s must-have cell phone. That means there are some cool Japanese iPhone cases up for grabs

Kjeld Duits: @Jini: The Rilakkuma is my favorite, too. True Japanese kawaii. ;-)
Jini: I don’t owe a iPhone (not planning to get one either x: ..) but those cases are cute! Specially the Rilakkuma one~!
Kjeld Duits: Thanks, Clea! I hope you have an iPhone, so you can actually dress it up the Japanese way. ;-)
