Part II of the TROIS series was meant to represent the “urban” style that really influenced me when I moved to Los Angeles. I love the fact that everything here in LA is able to inspire me – the fact that the street style is so diverse. Although, I really took to the laid-back attitude when it comes to dressing here, there are still plenty of opportunities where I would be able to dress up a little bit as well. I think it just became natural for me to dress a little more urban during the school year when I just don’t have the time to worry about what I’m going to wear everyday. Honestly, I just like to throw on an oversized shirt and a pair of boots to spend the day in nowadays.
Also, can I just comment on the setting of this shoot? We were running around Jakarta looking for a place to shoot and came across this huge, temple-like structure in one area called Pantai Indah Kapuk. It turned out to be a buddhist school, just like… this really beautiful building in the most random area. We probably would have done more exploring if it wasn’t for the fact that it was 100 degrees out, and I was running around getting changed in random nooks and corners of the place, working up a sweat. Also, the battery of my camera was rapidly running out so I think we did pretty well considering the circumstances.
