Karin Karas takes us to the renowned Shelley Street in Central, Hong Kong. I opt for solid color items with audacious colors like blue and orange. I could not wait to wear my favorite blue summer dress, so here it is, paired with the creamy Tencel Wrap long-sleeve tunic from Hana Tajima 2017 Spring/Summer collection for Uniqlo. There are so many ways to wear this tunic…
“Once you are high up, go on with the wind and the beautiful mighty birds, but never forget your roots and the humble worms that surround.”
Down-to-earth and flying high
There is an endless sea of skyscrapers in Hong Kong, because space is such a scarce resource. They are no doubt the essence of Hong Kong, therefore, a sight worth capturing. Today fashion photographer Karin Karas takes us high up to a rooftop in Kennedy Town, an area that is currently being graced by Hong Kong’s urban expansion.
I carry the earthly vibe in 4 shades of solid brown in my outfit up to the rooftop that overlook pastel buildings.
“It was the moment when the wind blew that my hair and fringes on my poncho drifted together harmoniously. I simply love the ensemble of the moment.”
Ok, let’s do a reality check here. I’m from a tropical country – Thailand. It’s always estimably 30ºC, all year long. I go out in the winter completely layered, like onions. I hustle when I walk outside because I can’t wait to be inside somewhere warm and still keep my coats on, for at least 20 minutes. Sometimes, I don’t take my coats off at all!
Despite my sensitivity to the cold, it was a really beautiful day with blue sky in the Beaujolais, with the special visit of the snow—lots of it! Therefore, we had to go outside to enjoy it, played snow balls fights, and of course, take some pictures! The average temperature on this day ranged from -1ºC to -5ºC. Our iPhones shut down multiple times while we were outside. Yes, so freezing cold even our most loyal digital companions ditched us (“How dare you brought us out in this numbing cold and expect us to finely function?! Bye bye!”).
This is my first blog post, ever!
Today I visited Châtillon-d’Azergues, a small medieval village in the Beaujolais area. The region is famous for its golden architecture constructed by golden-colored stones, hence the name Pays des Pierres Dorées (Country of the Golden Stones).
I believe wearing some cobalt blue will complement the various shades of golden yellow. So, I have decided to wear my warm ultramarine turtleneck from Uniqlo with the midnight blue long cardigan coat from Zara. I have always loved the soft, tiny glitters scattered across the coat. They give such a polished and understated glam touch.
