after all we're only ordinary men

Us and Them
And after all we're only ordinary men
Me, and you
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do
Forward he cried from the rear
and the front rank died
And the General sat, as the lines on the map
moved from side to side
Black and Blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and Down
And in the end it's only round and round and round
Haven't you heard it's a battle of words
the poster bearer cried
Listen son, said the man with the gun
There's room for you inside
Down and Out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about
With, without
And who'll deny that's what the fighting all about
Get out of the way, it's a busy day
And I've got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died



I buy So-en 装苑 magazine once a while... Yeah it's quite a girly magazine, and I can't understand Japanese as well. I just like flipping through all those wonderful styling and photograph, every single images in it is nicely crafted and damn beautiful.

Just found out Aoi Yu 蒼井優 was on the cover of So-en men's special last October. The sweet Aoi in men dressing, kakkoii @.@... 好靓~

when genius meets genius meets genius

Jun Takahashi (高桥盾) + Dieter Rams + Asano Tadanobu (浅野 忠信)

Dieter Rams, is undeniable the world most influential industrial designer. We've seen how Rams influence on Apple products, and now even fashion designer Jun Takahashi (Undercover) taking Rams' inspiration further by playing a tribute to Dieter Rams in his latest Spring/Summer 2010 collection - "Less but better".

Currently Undercover Aoyama shop is displaying the new collection, together with whole bunch of Rams' products all over the place. Personal thinking that the products had become more appealing than the clothes, almost like a mini exhibition of Dieter Rams, but the details on the cloths just gel with the product so nicely, it is very inspiring still.

And this is the first time Undercover present their latest collections in a Mook (Magazine+Book) form. I bought one from the previous Japan trip ~ Beside the ingenious apparels, the things that grabbing my attention the most is a series of photo shoots with Asano Tadanobu! Yeah~ My favorite fashion designer + favorite industrial designer + favorite actor of all time... I really love this shit!

long time no draw.

Always tempted to do some fashion illustrations... and recently a photographer friend Tian Xing asked me to add some graphics on his photos for Men's Uno magazine. Technically this is consider my first attempt on fashion illustrations, even though it was another tight timeline project but I was quite enjoy doing it.

These images have already been published on Men's Uno magazine, February 2010. Can't wait to collaborate with Tian Xing again on pretty female model's shots next time :P
