#Tyylit.fi x Vaatturiliike Sauma FW ´14

Sharing here a few more outtakes from the shooting we made with tyylit.fi in collaboration with Sauma. The full “look book” showcasing three different outfits from the selection of Sauma, styled mainly by myself and including pieces from Lardini, Herno, Montecore, Gran Sasso, Dondup, Sonrisa, Eredi Chiarini and Bonastre can be found from here. And be sure to check the other part of the look book as well, done in collaboration with another Helsinki-based store My o My THE MEN.

You can also check and follow tyylit.fi-tumblr - for more individual pics from both shootings and other inspirational-board - content which is now updating again on a regular basis.

This was a great project to play with and there’s more to come in the future.



Ikiré Jones F/W ‘14 “Of Saints & Savages”

Photography by Rog Walker.

"To whom it may concern. This is a challenge to the zealously held belief that Africa is a monolithic village in need of perpetual saving. This is an open assault upon the delusions of those who cry endlessly of desolate stomachs and doorways darkened by disease. This is a public disavowing of all who think the cradle of civilization has nothing more to offer than unmolested raw materials and an army of open palms awaiting aid.

Further, this is a disclaimer that upon becoming dissatisfied with the myriad fictions which are daily presented to us as fact, we have henceforth resolved to tell our own stories. Loudly. No longer will we dine on a bounty of half-baked biases. No more will we sip from hoses gushing hypocrisy and hogwash. There are those who look past Africa’s beauty in the hopes of seeing savagery; so that they may preen and posture as saints. We are the children of tomorrow. And we are here to assure that their disappointment awaits.”
