& OTHER STORIES OPENING PART 2

Teen kiire reportaaži varahommikuselt ja veidi kõigutavalt Megastarilt, ühes mõningate lisapiltidega & Other Stories’e avamispeolt. Nii seelik kui ka see meesteosakonnast nopitud T-särk on minu garderoobi äsja lisandunud, nii et on ka poodides kenasti olemas ja huvilisi ootamas!

Reporting live from the early morning TLN-HEL ferry, with some additional photos from the & Other Stories opening party.

& OTHER STORIES HELSINKI

Veebruarikuu esimesel päeval seadsin sammud põhjanaabrite juurde Helsingisse, et külastada & Other Stories’e poe avapidu. Kuna & Other Stories on olnud mu vaieldamatu lemmikbränd alates hetkest, mil see lansseeriti, siis oli mõistagi rõõm suur, kui eelmisel kevadel kuulsin, et see lõpuks ometi ka Helsingisse jõuab. Juhuste kokkusattumusel kutsuti mind aga ka poe avaüritusele, nii et eelmisel kolmapäeval just sel eesmärgil oma õhtupooliku Helsingis veetsingi. Pood asub kunagise H&Mi pinnal Galleria Esplanadis, Aleksanterinkatu idapoolses küljes, ning on meeletult suur – oma seniste & Other Stories’e kaupluste külastuste põhjal saan öelda, et nii suurt selle brändi poodi ei ole ma näinud ei Pariisis, Stockholmis ega ka Londonis. Lisaks näevad uues poes päevavalgust ka selle ajaloolise pangahoone originaalpõrand, -seinad ning mitmed teised vastavast ajastust pärit elemendid, mis pikki aastaid peidus on olnud ja mis & Other Stories’e poele ohtralt iseloomu annavad. Eks igaüks peab nüüd minema selle ise üle kaema – mina plaanin seda teha juba uuel nädalal, sest homme sean sammud jälle tuttava laeva peale, mis mind nädalaks töisesse Helsingisse viib. Miski aga justkui ütleb mulle, et iga oma rahakotis leiduva sendi jätan edaspidi just nende samade, Galleria Esplanadi ajalooliste lagede alla…

Here are some photos from the & Other Stories’ opening event in Helsinki the other day. It has been my ultimate favourite brand since its launch, so I’m truly happy that they have finally opened a store in Helsinki! The store itself is amazing and definitely the biggest & Other Stories’ store that I’ve ever been to, so it’s definitely worth checking out! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty sure I know where all of my money will be going from now on…

INSPIRATION: TOKYO BY MASASHI WAKUI

Mind on viimased pool aastat kimbutanud kinnisidee, et mul on tarvis reisida Aasiasse, eriti just Seouli (kirjutasin sellest isegi SIIN). Ma olen veetnud päevi Lõuna-Korea pealinna kohta infot hankides, otsides seda nii Wikipediast, reisisaitidelt kui ka moe- ja fotoblogidest, mistõttu tegin iseendaga diili, et aastal 2017 võtan ette reisi nii Tokyosse kui ka Seouli. Siin on siis aga väike fotogalerii, mis kajastab öist Tokyot ning mille autoriks on Masashi Wakui.

I’ve been seriously obsessed with Asia lately, especially with Seoul, and have made a deal with myself that I’ll travel to Tokyo and Seoul in 2017 (yes, planning way ahead). There’s something about these cities that really excites me and when I stumbled upon these photos, my obsession grew even bigger. So here’s Tokyo by night, captured by Masashi Wakui.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA

I stumbled upon a wonderful photo series that captures the rough areas of New York and is taken by a French street photographer Axel Morin. These photographs, carrying the true essence and emotions of NYC and its boroughs, were shot over the summer of 2015 and show the city through my favourite kind of light. I’ve always been fascinated with the street culture, the ghettos, and basically everything related to the life on the real streets of New York, so I fell madly in love with these photos. Check them out and find out more about them HERE.

BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY

Found these super cool images from my photo archives. Taken many years ago in Miami and NYC, in 2009 to be precise. Ahhh, can’t wait to visit these wonderful cities again!
