This will be the last Monday favorites before taking some time off next week. But, yes, you got it, this one brings an insane array of mish mash goodness: perfect menswear by Dana Lee, Studio Swine take on hair-ientalism,wonderful handmade leather bags by upcoming dutch brand Labour of Art and Mark Borthwick photography. It's all good.
"Menswear feels like more of an extension of my own personal style. Also, I’ve always had an obsession with trying to perfect basics and seemingly boring things. I find these things can shine more in menswear." I love you Dana ! Here several collections by New York based designer Dana Lee.

"Hair Highway is a contemporary take on the ancient Silk Road which transported not only silk but also technologies, aesthetics and ideas between East and West. Investigating the global hair industry in the Shandong province of China, Studio Swine followed the journey of the material from the people who sell their hair through to the hair merchants, markets and factories. The project documents this journey in a film and a collection of highly decorative objects." Studio Swine

 Labour of Art handmade leather bags, from Utrecht, the Netherlands, with love.

Simplicity. Honesty. It's all so simple. Reject conventions, reject negativity, and paths of (self) destruction. And I'm having a soft  boiled egg and a coffee this morning while I'm writing this down. And I like to be with you in the sun. And I like to walk with you when the lights are going down.

karaoke wednesday | holy wave

 Got hooked. Tremendously hooked on  Holy Wave. Their music is like pure magic. 

I've been drawn to my main love affair once again, which is music. I mean, fashion has become gradually very boring and secondary to me. It all comes across as too similar one way or another.  
What also bothers me in fascis..sorry, fashion, is the lack of authenticity I suppose. Even what comes across as genuine is really overly produced, and staged up and therefore it becomes immediately uninteresting and unappealing. At least to me. 
I just don't dig the trends, the "luxe", the brands. It's a bit nerve wrecking actually. The few things I have bought in the last months were vintage and thrift/second hand finds.I suppose you get different priorities and interests as time passes by. And moons go by. Anyway, it's karaoke Wednesday. Jam along. From train stop, to train stop.
