100 Coolest Harajuku Looks of 2012 — Straight from Tokyo

Dec 27 2012: From Mode to Lolita, the 100 coolest Harajuku looks of 2012

Kjeld Duits: Some beautiful things have been said in the comments. Thank you for sharing them. It is often said that avant-garde artists like Van Gogh, Mondrian, Dali and Picasso were ahead of their time. Of course they were not ahead. They were their time. It was the people that were behind and needed much time to catch up. It is the same with Japanese street fashion. The people on the streets of Tokyo live now, dress now. Their styles define what it means to live in Tokyo now. The rest of us, we are just playing catch up. ^_-
Kjeld Duits: @Joe: Beautifully said, Joe. Thank you.
Joe: Roberto, the clothes may be unusual but remember that not everything consists of being conventional- there’s an art in going outside the boundaries. For a long time people were upset at Mondrian and Picasso but now people understand them as arbiters of a new way of looking at the world. I respect your point of view but please do the same for others- there is no universal arbiter of taste. Perhaps if you consider the clothing here as a sort of public costume you’ll see it in a different light.

rooms 25 - September 2012

Sep 13 2012: One of Tokyo’s most important fashion exhibitions, rooms, was once again held at Yoyogi Stadium. JAPANESE STREETS had a look and picked a few favorites from the thousands of brand new products on display

Kjeld Duits: @Maria: Yes, their designs are great. The (Japanese) designer spent a lot of time in the Netherlands, and I feel there is some Dutch influence. Actually, the name of the brand, proef, is Dutch, so we both have Dutch and Spanish.
Maria: Yesterday I checked out Proef webpage, so cool! I think my favorite is Olor Japan, it’s so cute and the name is in Spanish! ^^
Kjeld Duits: @Martin & Maria: Yes, the proef tights are absolutely awesome!
