NEW/OLD FAVORITES (6/6)

After half a year of living my life outside of this blog, I have accumulated my favourites from 6 different areas of fashion, culture, and art — integral parts of my life. 

Muse - Kiko Mizuhara

My muse, or “No. 1 bae” as kids call it these days, is the one and only Kiko Mizuhara. I love her for many reasons — her retro and no-fuss style, her ability to pull off anything and look like she was born into it, and most importantly, her carefree confidence. If you want to fall in love/enter a dreamy life portrayed by Kiko, you will want to check out her instagram: @i_am_kiko.


Hair - Irene Kim
My hair inspiration, who I will only be able to envy right now, is Irene Kim and her pink+yellow+purple+brown-highlighted messy bob. It is refreshing for summer both physically (for her) and visually (for everyone), and gives her outfit another exciting pop.


Hyukoh
Recently I have come in contact with the SK indie band Hyukoh. South Korean music is not new for me at all, but what is new is their soft, retro, dreamy pieces that transport me to a quiet, comfortable place. Fun fact: the band name is actually the lead singer’s name - Hyuk Oh. P.S. Please please please check out their music, even if you don’t understand the lyrics, just listen (you won’t regret). 
> Bawling (my favorite track)


Graphic Designer - Aaron Nieh

Aaron Nieh. I can’t even begin to express my admiration, appreciation, and love for him and his designs. I have so far bought 3 of his publications just so that I could physically feel his designs. His works range from album designs, posters, packaging, book covers, and his own writings. I discovered his work and the confidence in his character through a short television program, and I could not resist myself from following him on all social media platforms just to find out more about him. (I’m starting to realise just how much confidence attracts me/is attractive).


Favorite Read - Murakami
I may be obsessed with Murakami books. Every novel I have read from him so far has the signature elements of isolation, introspection, the laying bare of constrained emotions and thoughts, and ambiguity. This one in particular — Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, had a storyline that made want to continue following the narrator’s journey towards understanding his past and his true desires in life.


Osaka + Kyoto Travel
Bits from my Osaka + Kyoto graduation trip early this summer. I hope to return soon.
