BS residence

June 24, 2015







My favourite residential design of this week, this house in Belgium used to be a farm which was designed by a Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen. This is a beautiful reinterpretation of a modern rural living.

The full moon story

These are breath-taking images of Hanbok (traditional Korean costume) by Kyung-Soo Kim for Vogue Korea in 2008. Although I’m Korean myself, I never knew how beautiful Hanbok can be. These images have a quality of still life pastel paintings, the starched up linen dress are beautifully structured, looking so alive and delicate. I really love the pale makeup and laser cut-like hair of the models, they create a nice contrast to the voluminous and layered dresses.

“During the National traditional festivities called “Chuseok”, many Korean people used to wear the “hanbok”. I wanted to show this typical ambiance with both a lyric and modern touch. I wanted a neutral stage; only shadows and reflections mattered to me: Colours, faces and models were enhanced by cold and light tones creating an almost surreal feeling.” – Kyung-Soo Kim

outfit post 2

You might be wondering why I’ve posted a summer outfit when it’s winter in New Zealand. I happen to be moving to Singapore next week so I’ve been browsing summer fashion all week – When I stumbled upon this new charmeuse dress by The Row, I knew I had to post this on my blog. The colour and the fabric look so elegant and comfortable, I would wear this with a bucket bag to go for an easy, casual look. Currently I’m looking for a good pressed powder as I know it will come handy in Singapore’s humid weather for long-lasting makeup. I also want to grab Nar’s The multiple for lips & cheeks, I’m one of those people who doesn’t want to carry a bulky bag overloaded with cosmetics.
