My Inspiration Girl

My favorite looks from the shows. Don’t know why, but even in fall winter season I’m drawn to light and color palette. Yes, black is very refined and so easy, it is hard to get it wrong. But there’s something so attractive about taking risks and not being afraid to get it wrong.

I have a great friend Lingzi Zhang, who never owned a basic t-shirt. She said ‘What’s the point, if you can get it from any of your boyfriends’. She came to visit me in Milan once and we went to Sonar in Barcelona together. She showed up in yellow jumpsuit and heels straight from the airport. All the stuff in her suitcase was either color or print. We lived in Hong Kong together, went out every night and loved dressing up. But not like me, she never though too much about creating an outfit and didn’t take long to leave home. She doesn’t care what others think of her, but yet I think she’s the most stylish girl I know. I always picture her before buying those crazy ‘very unsafe’ shoes.

Miss you, Lingzi and can’t wait for you to visit me in New York! xx

A dream in Paris

Image Image Image Image Image It’s amazing to shoot stories, that feel very ‘me’. This one, that we shot in Paris, in particular. I loved the pastels, colored leather, candy floss wigs and how romantic, dramatic, futuristic and a bit sad it felt.

Lost in a Hong Kong

Image Image Image Image Image Once in Hong Kong Alicia, Lingzi and myself decided to sell clothes online. It was our first shoot. And the last. I fell in love with New York, Lingzi fell in love with a boy and Alicia (who was already in love) decided to design shoes. Here’s what we got left out of the project. All photos by my dearest friend Lingzi Zhang.
