INSPIRATION: TOKYO BY MASASHI WAKUI

tokyo-streets-night-photography-masashi-wakui-3

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!

#MINIMUM

Nime MINIMUM kannab taanlaste imetore, skandinaavialikult minimalistlik rõivabränd, mis on tegelikult kenasti saadaval ka siinsamas Tallinnas, täpsemalt Foorumi keskuses paiknevas kaupluses WAB. Eelmisel nädalal seadsin sammud taaskord kodusesse Helsingisse, seekord eesmärgiga antud brändi ning selle sügistalvise kollektsiooniga lähemalt tutvust teha.

Kollektsioon ise oli imeilus ja koosnes minusuguse sügisearmastaja rõõmuks just nendest toonidest, mida ühelt sügiskollektsioonilt alati ootan. Hall, roheline või ploomikarva oli pea iga kollektsioonis sisalduv ese ning mantleid ja kudumeid leidus enam kui küllalt. Ja nii juhtuski see, et armusin MINIMUMi brändi kõrvuni ära ning pean tunnistama, et kripeldama jäi üsna mitu rõivaeset. Seega tšekitaut!

MINIMUM is a super awesome Danish clothing brand with a focus on minimalist design. I went to Helsinki last week in order to check out their Autumn/Winter 2015 collection and ended up falling madly in love with the brand!

The collection itself was just perfect and included all the must-have Autumn colours, from greys to greens to plum. The racks were full of knits, coats and furry jackets and even though I love, love, LOVE summer, I now secretly can’t wait for Autumn to begin. So if you haven’t already heard of them, make sure to check out this awesome brand!
