"We live in a state of numbness: we lack self-confidence, we're hyper-numb, and in the West, we are close to a sort of psycho-burnout. In this state, sudden emotion could operate as a spark. I would never loosely use the word love, but I'm very happy saying it this way: we should allow love some space."
Artist Olafur Eliasson in conversation with Kevin Kelly, 032c Summer 2011 issue
"What's the biggest dream we have right now? Maybe it's that we'll connect everybody to everybody else, but that's it. We've got one dream. After that, what's the biggest dream?"
Kevin Kelly, the founding editor of Wired, in conversation with Olafur Eliasson, 032c Summer 2011 issue
Read it, okay?
I noticed my blog was briefly mentioned briefly in Elle Finland, thank you!
The title of the story was fashion nerds or something similar, and since I'm back from my summer hiatus, except to read entries about how I discovered after 1,5 years of finding new summer shoes that I am definitely a loafer person...

1. Building an exhibition at Kiasma 2. Taik Spring 11 Show 2. Alaia book 3. Models
This was couple of months ago, or so it seems. Time flies when you're living, the same songs get played and life gives back what it has taken...

These are my favorites from the Laitinen SS12 collection.
What draws me to the collection this season is again the use of materials and fabric.
Reindeer leather, metallic silk, waxed cotton, linen, you name it.
Not to mention the cotton/linen floral print (!) is very contemporary, hi Tyler The Creator.
And the seersucker suit is incredibly beautiful.
Damn you clothes getting me emotional...
I'm took out my second hand Italian linen pinstripe blazer and I've been wearing it with joy the past weeks.
It's unlined and I putting it on always makes me feel like I'm going to a holiday.
Something so simple can change your whole mindset.
Not bad for a piece of garment bought for 30 cents...
Ps. also check out interview + more pictures of the Laitinen SS12 collection at Dazed!

Damn I'm late with setting up my portfolio website, but here are some shots taken with Mamiya and Olympus OM during last winter, in the same vein with the Young Blood set.

composers would write nothing but finales."
