Street style: Japanese menswear, New York

Japanese menswear NY THE VIEWFINDER

Met this great guy together with his friend (which I also shot, click here for her look) from Japan who was in New York for his study ..apparently something to do with fashion. Being a fan of Japan it’s always nice meeting Japanese people and ask them about their interest and of course Japan itself…even try to properly great them in Japanese^_^.

They really liked posing for the blog and especially this woman took advantage of the moment and used the street (yes, the street) as her catwalk.

This fashionista was friendly and really had fun posing for the blog ….believe me she Continue reading “Street style: Japanese sporty chic, Amsterdam”

It was so nice meeting these friendly Japanese women just before the Starbucks in Amsterdam. When I was about to exit the building I immediately spotted this Japanese woman a quickly took a shot (see below). I decided to go after them and ask her for a quick shoot, because I just wanted to capture the whole look the way it deserved to be shot (see above). Besides the shooting it was nice to use this opportunity to speak some Japanese, which went quite well (haven’t used it the last 3 years).
