this little gang was not hard to miss at seoul fashion week: day 3. despite their intimidating look, i think they were the friendliest people ive shot so far. the tattoos on the girls are the cherry on top. you cant see them well, but two of the girls have lovely neck tattoos. once again, i have to say, style is a about an attitude. also, it really does seem to be more effective when your friends compliment your style. being trendy alone is no fun!
here is a peek at my first day at seoul fashion week! it all takes place at DDP, a massive space-shuttle-like plaza. celebrity culture in korea is crazy. and because all of the shows take place in this one venue, a lot of people turnup just to go celebrity hunting. a couple of times models like kim wonjoong walked past my friend and i who were chatting it up, only to be trampled by 1000 high school students no less than 3 seconds later. anyhow, yesterday (don’t ask me why im blogging at 5am), i saw beyond closet and yohanix. ill be posting details of each show in the coming week!
button down: uniqlo, trench coat: jnby, pants: indi brand
hat: the royal we, boots: zara, watch: daniel wellington.
i had to rush home after school to quickly get changed for fashion week – so this is what i came up with! nothing too complicated, and plus, i don’t have that many clothes in korea. i liked the open button-down, the trench coat with multiple layers and some fun jewelry. classics with a twist. keep checking back! ill be up to more adventures today!
shot these two gals in montreal on the same day- the former is a magazine editor, and the latter is a blogger (have a peek at gaelle leroyer). i have this thing for sweden, and maybe im wrong but their radient beauty, sharp blonde hair and casual cool reminded me of that. from now on, streetstyle photos won’t only be on the facebook page, but also on the blog! im printing out business cards this weekend, and hitting the streets of seoul. hope you will like what this city has to offer!
pulled a few of these streetstyle photos via tommy ton. i think i keep taking step backs in terms of fashion, so i’ve been admiring these kinds of ladylike looks, that are still badass in their own respect. i think “fashion” people are headed in two directions right now (1) pile on as much as you possibly can; textures, colors, prints, etc (2) bare minimalism.
for the former, quite frankly its rare that these kinds of outfits look nice in daily life. people put a lot of thought into their fashion week outfits, but if you are a busy bee running from school to work to home, these outfits are not practical. not to worry, the crazy fashion week photos you generally see are an outcome of total fashion genius, lots of money being spent, and throw in some supermodel bodz.
the latter is becoming outplayed, boring and way too easy. im not saying im anti-minimalism, but i am saying im seeing the same birkenstocks, denim and white tee outfits everywhere. instead, im just trying to stick with classic looks. lately when shopping, i try to focus on the pieces themselves and not how they will fit into one specific outfit. should the color and texture be right, it should go with everything. as for being on a budget, i think accessories are king at the moment. that way you can easily achieve a put together look, that has interesting cues and not worry too much about what to wear during the morning rush.
