Photography Come on, Vogue

Yes, I can

Listen, if The Sartorialist guy can do it, then I can, too: real-life style photography. Staggering findings of urban sophistication. Elegance. Panache. Hell, why not even style commentary—if I want to.

Design avant-garde or wardrobe malfunction? Cristian -Kit- Paul, Bucharest, 2005

Style and all things chic

Now really. Look at this: les annees folles of transition economy, wild parties and champagne in the morning—a few sips too many—and she hits the street dressed with a sofa cover, prettified with an assemblage of lovely fluffy tassels dangling limp like a strangled family of little forrest animals.

Quite a warning. There are things going on underneath, mysterious things. Ambiguous and intriguing things. Artifacts obliviously hanging out, probably by design—post-modernly quoting the misfortunes of wardrobe malfunction. Design should be, though, because those flowery baits will shrewdly entice your hungry eye—like a stupid little puppy—toward the vicious curves concealed underneath like boas in the jungle, unmerciful and relentless.

And then, the finishing BDSM touch: cheeky not-so-tiny golden hand-cuffs, sprinkled with blinding Swarovski crystals, teasingly barring the way to the vast carnal temptations sequestered underneath. Do sailors blush?

Sorry, Gulbin. I'm afraid I don't have the time to translate it now—this one needs time, being a pretty delicate issue.

Cristina, I encountered this lady on Calea Victoriei boulevard. She came out of Fashion Tv Bar, which kinda makes sense, doesn't it?

We're closer to westerners than we thought. Hell, we might even be ahead of them already, just breathing down Japan's neck, with that kind of crazy-ass fashion :))

Then again, we only seem proficient in absorbing bad culture and habits from everywhere around the world :|

I had a good laugh, Iancu. Miles ahead of the Japanese—she might've teach those Harajuku girls a thing or two.
