Hong Kong weather in summer is often so unpredictable especially in the past few weeks. My followers on instagram will know that lately, I’ve been trying to do more outdoor #ootd photoshoots. It is always interesting to see how each outfit works with a different scenery to create the perfect fashion street snap. Which is why everywhere I go I look around to see which location and interesting to compliments which outfits I have in my closet. Sometimes, I will wear an outfit first then walk around with my assistant to see where its best to shoot the clothes, but for this outfit I had a specific location in mind. So imagine my disappointment when it rained heavily the day I have to wear this outfit to the designer’s popup event.
Not wanting to wear the exact same outfit to shoot again waiting for the weather to improve ( cause I never really like to wear the exact
same outfit twice ) I’ve decided to try to experiment with using this
outfit but shoot it indoors without going out in the rain- the back
stairs and the space in the old industrial building outside my office.
Lets talk about the outfit first. Those of you who read this blog
from the very beginning will know that I wear alot of Hong Kong
Fashion Brand Modement. I love how the brand innovates menswear yet
also have pieces that are very wearable and compliments the body.
One of the signature pieces for Modement SS15 is a geometric print in
primary colours which features birds in a semi sheer fabric. I fell
in love with it as soon as I saw it last year because for me Fashion
is art and I would hang that print up my wall. Playing with that idea
I decide to compliment the print jacket with basic clean whites to
create a canvas against my art work and my new printed Giuseppe
Zanotti Sneakers which FINALLY went on sale. For some reason I really
want to clash it with Sailor Moon socks to bring some fun and
quirkiness to the outfit.
The result end up going suprisingly well with the location. The brightness and fun of the outfit contrast very well with the rawness of the industrial building. Also realise my building have a few bright colours which compliments the outfit. After going thru the photos, I realise sometimes plan b can be better than plan A cause I never throught a place I walk past everyday on my way to work have so many beautiful elements which matches this outfit.
Without further doodahs, Here are the photos.
THE PERFECT PLAN B
