PUFF PUFF PASS

For those of you who were reeled in by the title… soz it’s not what you think (#falseadvertising) but welcome anyway and please stay. For those of you who just missed me while I was gone; fear not because I’m back! And I have treats.

Plot twist; I’m the treat!

I recently teamed up with my incredibly talented friend Alan Redfern aka @visualyzethis (check him out on IG) to shoot one of the last possible winter-ish outfit posts in the 852. As Nelly said; it’s getting hot in here. And with summer fast approaching, it’s time to retire the coats and boots and get ready for 32 degree, 100% humidity, overcast rainy days. And junk boats. Remember the junk boats, Nina. Remember.

So while I could, I wanted to shoot the jacket of the AW’18 season: the puffer. Knowing that this is truly only a trend piece (with it being literally everywhere, in every colour and variation last winter); I stuck with this faded mint poof from local brand Maple because ain’t nobody got time to be dropping dollar on something that you can only wear a handful of times, especially in HK (there was already definitely some undercover shvitzing going on here anyway). I like the idea of playing with volume and aesthetics – a sleek, feminine dress paired with hard, worn boots and a mahooosive jacket, all cinched with another new staple: a belt bag. Aka the cooler cousin of the fanny pack; a trend I first (re)delved into last year over Clockenflap weekend. Except in all honesty that was just a stellar example of a functional, K-Way inspired hiking bag and was in almost no way cute at all. And that’s about all the inspo there was for this post. I loved this outfit. I wanted to shoot. I had Monday off. I have amazing friends. Temperature rising.

Massive shoutout to Alan for stepping out of his photographic comfort zone and shooting fashooooooooon. This wonderful boy has been perfecting his surrealist snaps over the last few years; stretching the viewers’ perspectives in unison with the lines and proportions of the images themselves. He now makes videos too, capturing the beautiful essence of the life we live. You’re so talented chom.
