Feature: StreetPeek Singapore

Fashion blogs can be undeniably dull on many occasions, it’s been a few years now that fashion blogging and street photography have taken the internet by storm. Due to the sheer amount of all this similar content, it can be easy to lose interest in this type of work.

Street fashion photography highlights the everyday person from around the globe’s influence to trends and what retailers want to sell us. A good photographer can produce fascinating exhibitions of numerous people’s ways of self-expression.

My good friend turned Instagram celebrity John Tan doesn’t have the word mediocre in his vocabulary. He is talented enough to produce instantly iconic photographs of impeccably stylish people he encounters on the streets of Singapore. His work has been featured in various exhibitions and websites including internet giant Buzzfeed.

His blog ‘Streetpeek’ hasn’t been updated in a while partially due to Asian study problems but his Instgram feed is alive and kicking. His work is definitely a cut above the rest and I would really recommend checking it out. While the world may know him as a savvy lens genius, I have a collection of beautiful but perhaps, slightly less glamorous memories with him. *Distressed animal noise*

WEAR: LN-CC Sale

So I may not be able to afford any of it, yet for the more privileged of you out there. LN-CC have a pretty good sale as far as classy concept stores go. There are a few special pieces online with some decent price slashing. So go support them. After all we do coincidentally have a L, N and – in common. Plus many of the items are from Maison Martin Margiela’s line who are next to collaborate with H and M

All can be found at www.ln-cc.com

WEAR: James Long For Topman

So my favourite designer has decided to tap in properly to the mainstream clothing market. In this collaboration with Topman, he has produced a series of signature knitwear tops all designs sure to turn heads. I like the majority of them and in fact most of them are very wearable.

I think it might be worth it to spend a little more than usual on one of these as they genuinely appear to have been thought out like James Long originals. As opposed to just attaching tags with a name on. I guess topman are trying to mimic H and M’s successful formula of Designer collaborations. They have chosen their weapon well shall we say. Not too sure about the shots which have been released and I don’t particularly think they exhibit the series well yet it gives you a general idea of what the jumpers will be like. See the images below and leave your opinion~

P.s. I think the jumpers have been made out to be a lot more fluffy in the press images a few washes and they’ll look fine!
