Harajuku Trends

Nov 16 2009: Emi and I shot a lot of new photos of street fashion in Tokyo’s Harajuku.

Kjeld Duits: @jaderdavila: I have never seen kaftans made of chiffon. But in October/November the weather can already be pretty cool in Tokyo, so I think the kaftan is just fine.
jaderdavila: kaftan is so great! the boy used a heavy fabric. is it warm for the fall? is there a light fabric for the summer, like chiffon?
Keke: I love Japanese Fashion. Rock-On!!!***


Lolita Fashion in Singapore

Nov 15 2009: Lolita fashion might have started in Japan, but it is increasingly popular all over the world. MTV Asia recently interviewed lolita fans in Singapore.

Sunshine: Hey, guys! I’ve found this legit Japanese website where they sell epicly awesome lolita/gothic/kawaii costumes! Ones: and
dblchin: I’m a big fan of lolita culture but sadly I can’t find any gals that are interested in my area. Does anyone have any recommendations? btw i’m from singapore
Kjeld Duits: Hi Kagitsune. I love visiting I can imagine how difficult it must be outside Japan to meet dressed in Lolita.

Street Goes Official

Nov 14 2009: While shooting in Tokyo’s trendy Harajuku, I noticed there is a whole new trend in headgear. Uniform hats and caps—and anything else that even looks slightly official—are red hot.

Kjeld Duits: @Ari: Would love to know the origins.
Ari: The one with the blue rim is pretty similar to the hat part of the couleur (flag colour items) of a German Studentenverbindung (fraternity). Actually, it’s just the same shape as an old-fashioned university student’s cap. They have these in Scandinavia too, though, so it’s not quite sure if this one’s German after all.
Kjeld Duits: Thanks, Davey. I like the postman’s cap. I think it’s really cute.


Japan Fashion Week

Nov 13 2009: JAPANESE STREETS covered the Japan Fashion Week S/S 2010 held in Tokyo in October.


Meet Japanese Ghosts

Oct 22 2009: Just in time for Halloween, some of Japan’s best loved ghosts and spirits are visiting the recently opened NEW PEOPLE, a combined shop, movie theater and art space focusing on Japanese pop culture in San Fransisco.

Sergey: oh nice.
wowchicken: I can’t wait for halloween since its really popular here. I love it, and I hope one day Japan comes to love it too.
Kjeld: Halloween is not so popular (yet). There are some parties at clubs, and shops sell Halloween goods, but kids don’t go out in costume to collect candy. I wonder if it ever will be popular—it seems too foreign for Japan.
