IMG_8598

Slowly I am finding my step in the casual wear section. For years I have struggled to really settle in with my casual wardrobe, it’s been quite a hassle especially from the kind of the street wear background that i got sucked in at an early age. Lately i find comfort mixing the edge i inherited from street wear into my sartorial wardrobe, personally i think the balance defines me perfectly.

#THETiESTORY, LORO PIANA

loro pianal 4 solid navy blue ties and I am still out here catching the blues. I know you asking yourself, “does he really need to keep buying the same thing over and over again?”.

EYES, #1

IMG_8869
Eyes are the organs of vision. As basic as that sounds i find the eyes to be open of the intriguing and complex part of the human body. In portrait photography it’s encouraged to focus on the eyes, simply because it usually forms the focal point if the image, an eye in an eye. Over the years I have pretty become very obsessed with the human eye, especially in captured images. The eye authenticates emotion displayed in images, for example, it’s easy to spot a manufactured smile from a real one from the subject’s eye. I find the eye more intriguing when the subject has a blank expression, it automatically becomes a blank canvas with which you can pair any thought or emotion for the subject. I will be featuring 50 photographs under the theme project named EYE, 20 of which will be available for sale upon request when the project is completed. Thank you.

A suit has to have character, it’s said that it is necessary for the man to make the suit, but there is definitely nothing wrong with the suit setting the tone. This jacket has character, slipping into it almost feels like stepping into a movie role.
