I know I exaggerate a fair bit in this blog (i.e I haven’t slept last night so I MAY DIE), but I wasn’t actually kidding when I said I spent the whole week in Paris bumming in and around the rented flat, in my last post. The flat was on Rue Oberkampf, a third-floor walk-up just above a shabby bar heaving with ‘le cool’ after 10pm, all of which basically characterizes the entire neighbourhood. Oberkampf is a bit of a Dalston in Paris, a slightly grungier area on the fringes of a ‘hip’ part of town like Shoreditch, or Le Marais, in this case. Jin, his girlfriend and I met for dinner in the area and simply ended up shooting all these photos, mucking around in the neighbourhood. He shoots streetstyle by day (for Topshop and his own streetstyle blog), which is how I got to know him in the first place, but it was the photos he did ‘by night’ that I loved, and sure enough, by the time we were out of the restaurant his Contax was out from his jacket. I’d just recently found a great glasses brand called Ace & Tate via Fashiolista, and got a few pairs matched with a newly updated prescription for my ever bat-like eyesight, and wanted to share here somehow. This just turned out to be so much more fun way than the usual jazz – posing but not posing, just short of shooting with a baguette shoved up my nose, and visible or not, there’s a jelly worm in my mouth in each shot.

  14. Love the humour in the credits, though, you’re far from a “dumbass” & rather more of a genius. The editorial is awesome & looks straight out of a magazine.

  16. Ooo what lipstick are you wearing? If the shade I’m looking at right now is the actual shade in real life, it really looks like what Holly Golightly had on in the car scene. Eek!

    Ooh I believe the lipstick was Maybelline but when shooting these I’m sure I’d have eaten it all – so basically a nice rose-pink after a dinner! Sorry I can’t be of more help! And btw did you just compare me (ish) to Holly Golightly? WHAT. I love you.

  17. These were shot for FUN????? These photos are GORGEOUS! Plus, did you edit these photos yourself too? You should make this apart of your own legit editorial. Love these!

  20. Whoa, love these set of photos! I love your usual elegant photos, but these are quite the opposite – it shows a different side of you!

  21. These shots are great shini, very artistic, well though out and comes off spontaneous and fun. And I always have a thing to shoot at a laundromat, something very retro about it and it makes for GREAT backdrops. And cool collages too, should do more of these!! Btw, I just posted my shots from CHANEL, check out the up close and personal pics if you love Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld!! Which judging by that cardigan, you do! <3

  29. These pictures are insane, the one in the grocery store reminds me of this old editorial with kate moss and she was carrying a pack of nappies (i think). I really love it!! AND I just really need that chanel cardi in my life, like right now…
