If only I visited an asylum, would I have been able to take better pictures. But even if I have done so, it would only be better by the slightest, tiniest margin. Depicting probably the happiest patient you will ever find in an asylum; only because I am wearing creations by Givenchy and Alexander Wang. Christy and I wanted to do something more adventurous, freakish and futuristic. And since I am attempting to be fashionably up-to-date, I think I can now safely qualify this category since I have received the best birthday present (yet) - a pair of Dior Homme sunglasses from the SS15 show in June. Not only are they the most beautiful (trust me, there really are no other words to describe them) and, the highest quality pair of shades I have ever owned; since they are from the SS15 collection, they won't be released in stores until January 2015. And let me talk you through the pictures. Lip-stretching, face-tearing, back yoga would be a few ways to describe the things that were on my head at that time. Also incorporating a bit of jumping which is most likely to be a result of my fidgeting due to my cowardice of making the pictures look (too) S&M-ish. I don't usually encourage colour but I'm starting to appreciate the trend of mixing different colour palettes. The Maison Martin Margiela x h&m 'mould effect' boots featured here are probably the most versatile item I own this Fall (after my black trousers). Does versatility go hand-in-hand with the number of times you wear an item? Because I've worn these boots so many times that you can consider them as a replacement for my black leather shorts (for now). Hope you love the pictures as much as I do.

 

Thank you HUF Magazine for the feature and, again, a big thank you to the very talented Christy Wong from CHEwwSDAY.
