Is It The Camera?

Well, is it? A cou­ple of months old in terms of the video/documentary in this post, but its still rel­e­vant. Prob­a­bly as rel­e­vant years ago when there were a lot of cam­eras to pick from. Any­ways… Lee Mor­ris of Fstoppers.com shoots a full fash­ion pho­tog­ra­phy ses­sion with the iPhone 3Gs.

Here’s the video.

All entries should be sub­mit­ted by mid­night on Sun­day 17th May, 2009 Please for­ward all entrants to charlotte@oki-ni.com or post to:

Christian Peau Washed Leather Sneaker Boots

Sexy.

Chris­t­ian Peau is a Japan­ese fash­ion house whose design is under­stood to bridge the gap between mod­ern avant-garde and clas­si­cal artisan-based fash­ion. Unlike many cut­ting edge Japan­ese design­ers that have emerged from the last 10 years, Peau’s is much more Euro­pean in nature. His influ­ences lie in the tra­di­tionl arti­sans from the early 1800s who were under­stood to be mas­ters in their trade. Drawn from tra­di­tional shoe­mak­ing and leather mas­ter craftsmen,Christian Peau has rein­vented the avant-garde in a mod­ern and beau­ti­ful manner.

The empha­sis is on hand­made leather garments—each shoe is made by hand in Japan with an assort­ment of hand-stained, painted and washed leathers that are com­pounded and nailed together for a truly unique outcome.
