beautiful song hye-gyo (송혜교) in vogue korea (may '07),
as hwang jini (who she played in the film, hwang jini).
painted into these photographs by the amazing mr. paolo roversi.
when i saw the film and saw the vogue spreads,
i became obsessed with the costumes, their rather unusual texture and colors,
along with the specially designed ornaments by designer kuho jung.

is not a lovely lady from finland, but a brilliant japanese man, akira minagawa.

+ one of my all-time favorite minä designs:

3191 a year of mornings (will be coming out as a book!)
and now... 3191 a year of evenings...
beautiful mornings and evenings, 3191 miles apart.
by mav and stephanie.
i find it awe-inspiring and special to see such distance being overcome
by a shared interest, tenacity... and time apart together.
as someone who's constantly moved away and had friends move away,
i know it first hand that that is much easier said than done.
