The Bigger Picture…

Posted in Uncategorized on June 24, 2010 by pav1991

Fashion photography can sometimes have such a big impact on the audience and often says more than words themselves. I admire photographers for having the ability to evoke many emotions from what essentially is a moment of time. Those who appreciate any kind of photography however, will know that it is so much more than a moment of time, its effect can linger on and can leave one feeling moved. A single picture can be interpreted in a thousand different ways – it’s freedom, it’s vast, its impact is something bigger than me or you.

I discovered the work of Zhang Jingna a few months ago and have been captivated ever since. She’s a young and talented photographer from Singapore with commendable vision. Her work is absolutely mesmerising, she captures every moment beautifully while not carelessly forgetting to emphasise the garment. Her work is fascinating, inspiring and honest. Reacting to a simple photograph is a beautiful thing, being affected by something so simple brings back some realism and sense of being in the hustle and bustle of life.

Take a moment to establish how these pictures are making you feel. What’s the story behind them? Before I even told you to think about this, many of you probably had an initial reaction to the photos…they could have made you feel something in some way or another. If so, you looked at the bigger picture…that is amazing.

Menswear Fall/Winter 2010

Posted in Uncategorized on June 9, 2010 by pav1991

Where to start, I’ve gone through a lot of impressive collections and want to incorporate them all! I will share these over a series of posts. Within this post however, I’ve included three different collections each demonstrating appropriate shades, shapes and styles for the season. I always love looking at Fall/ Winter collections because the option of layering and experimentation with clothing is available.

Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2010

I was highly impressed with the integration of accessories within this collection, they should most certainly not be overlooked. The boots, bags and gloves add the final touches and complete the looks. Tweed as well as fine leathers were used frequently here so be sure to include some of that in your wardrobe for the season. Dark greys, navy blues, browns and beiges are all appropriate for the season and Louis Vuitton have perfectly used these colours together. A theme I noticed throughout the collection was the contrast of colours used on contrasting pieces. For example, navy blue trousers accompanying a grey blazer as opposed to just having a plain navy blue suit. Something so simple can make a big difference and make your look a whole lot more interesting.

Velour Fall/Winter 2010

From distinct shapes and a smart appearance to a more preppy and casual look. I love this collections simplicity, throwing on a shirt with some ‘skinnies’ has never looked so good before. It’s young and it’s effortless but it also looks damn good. Again, blues and beiges are key colours here.

What everyone has been talking about…
