When Vogue Korea asked Kim Kyoungsoo, a renowned fashion photographer to realize a series of fashion portraits that would (re-actualize) the traditionnal Korean costum (Hanbok), he also decided to realize his series Full Moon Story. His models are elegantly staged, wearing somptuous Hanbok, with their haircuts and make-up done perfectly. There is a serenity, poetry and softness which emanates from the pictures that astonishes and instantly puts the viewer in a contemplative state of mind.

The fabrics are what initially drew me to these images while browsing away on Pinterest. I love how the texture shines through - you'd almost want to touch the screen in the hope that you will feel the linen.

“During the National traditionnal 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.”

inez and vinoodh

In the June issue of Vogue Nederland I came across a short article about Lijn 2, the second jewelry collection of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. After a short search online I found some absolutely stunning images by this Dutch couple who now live in NYC. The jewelry pieces by Inez and Vinoodh are available via Barneys.

Sometimes by pure luck and coincidence you find a beautiful source of inspiration. The combination of the serene photographs, the backdrop of Bali and sweet flow of the words make Honey Pie Living etc a special place to visit. Hannah does all the photography, the edits and writing. A perfect balance.

Have a beautiful, happy and healthy weekend. Enjoy every second.

i was in mermaid mood and had somehow surrendered
to living for a while down in the depths. surrendered to not
knowing how long it would last, that state where all could be
both a blue precipice and a heaven in reverse, ocean blue

hello monday

Yesterday the 10th annual ride, walk and swim for the roses took place in Curacao. I believe about 8000 people participated - which, for a tiny island, is something quite impressive. So it is a great way to start the week - energized, positive and hmmm with a bit of muscle ache.

Have a great one. Smile loads.

I'd like to share a few more on the beautiful photographs from tiny atlas with you this morning. These are taken by emily nathan.

Yesterday I discovered, by pure coincidence and sheer luck, a beautiful quarterly online publication. With intense photographs, delicate words and a transcending power. I welcome you to bask in the beauty of Tiny Atlas Quarterly.

Below are some of the many heart-opening images and some of the words you will find there. Let's explore.

You are the bread and the knife,
The crystal goblet and the wine
You are the dew on the morning grass,
And the burning wheel of the sun.
You are the white apron of the baker
And the marsh birds suddenly in flight.

Speaking of the plentiful imagery of the world,
That I am the sound of rain on the roof.

penny ice creamery

I love Kinfolk magazine. It is so clean, so honest and it has such great stories. Their website offers some awesome pieces as well. One that stands out is written by Jordan Hernandez and the photographs are by James Fitzgerald III about Penny Ice Creamery.

People begin to arrive as early as 4 a.m. and it’s lights, music, espresso

Balance, respect and trust are key, and if you have those established then a lot is possible.
