Look Book Love : Yang Li SS13

1008867

It was only a matter of time before the street style photography style would begin to bleed into the fashion industry. While it already has been for years, a more literal and realistic approach was taken with the SS13 look book from then London based designer, Yang Li. Now I believe he’s based in Paris.  I know this collection is a few seasons old but I just can’t get this tough but street minimal clean taste off my brain.

романтический вздох by Gabriele Giussani for fashiongrunge.com

1Underneath all the production elements of a photoshoot there is a raw quality that can’t be denied. That’s just what Italian based photographer Gabriele Giussani had in mind when shooting this series of model Alena all around Milan on various film cameras. Let’s take a trip through the viewfinder of an analog shoot with a Russian girl who has a romantic gaze.

California Bubble by Katie Silvester

I recently discovered the work of London based photographer, Katie Silvester. In the lush areas of the location the vibe is just perfect, with just a bit of 90s nostalgia.

Artistic Synergy: Abdul Kircher

newhead

One of the things that is catching my eye lately is the personalities behind the camera the stories they have to share. This brings me to photographer Abdul Kircher. I just discovered his work a few weeks ago and just began delving more into his own story.

He was born in Berlin and is now based in New York City. His photographs have a raw quality in capturing the pulse of the streets and a personal depth much in the vein of Nan Goldin. Abdul himself has an interesting look as well. In a recent article I read that his eyes began to change colors when he was young, thus giving him one blue and brown. Makes for an interesting gaze toward the camera lens. Lately, he’s become a subject in front of the camera, as he’s now represented by Re:quest models in NY for special commissions.

Here are some photos of his interesting and multi layered style, which is definitely reminiscent of the early 90s style that I’ve come to find in almost every area of new generation.

Tuneage Tuesday : Ryan Adams

d1a78a34319c36f97a75f751c1474f47So I have a long appreciation for Ryan Adams. I first discovered his music when I was in college and going through one of “those” moments. You know the deep introspective  times when you’re just trying make it through the rainy day laying on your dorm bed.

Over the years he’s put out14 studio albums, with each one being just as beautiful and diverse as the next.  From alt-country, folk, and even a punk and metal concept record, his imprint remains on each genre.  Just last month he released his new self titled album to good reviews yet again.

In the 2000s he was known as a bit of a rebellious personality, often being unpredictable when it comes to live shows and other events. Through that he’s more known now for being married to Mandy Moore, but to me he’s another one of my favorite and truly honest singer-songwriters.

Movie Crush: The Rules of Attraction

rules of attraction

Now I know I’m breaking the cardinal rule of the site by discussing pop culture after the 90s but what the hell. The Rules of Attraction which came out in 2002 could have easily been released in the 90s. I remember seeing this when I was in college with a whole group of friends. I can safely say that I was incredibly obsessed and ran out to get the book (by Bret Easton Ellis) just a week later.

Shannyn Sossamon, who is one of the standouts of the film is my personal style icon from almost any film. From her asymmetrical haircut, tomboyish attitude, and skateboard girl cool factor she’s pretty much perfect. Also, can’t help but to give James Van Der Beek an honorable mention for his role as sketchy and deviant charater, Sean. Who is a far cry from his standard 90s role of “Dawson Leery” from “Dawson’s Creek”. It’s also impossible to forget Ian Somerhalder as Paul and Victor’s whirlwind trip through Europe.
