“A sister is both your mirror - and your opposite.” And no, we’re not twins. Being 3 years apart and working together as a photographer duo won’t stop us to be each other’s best friends. We’re from the same generation (somewhere in between millennials and Gen Y), we know each other by heart, and finish each other’s sentences with just a blink of an eye (or a burst of laugh). When it comes to style, we started out with different tastes, but since we always exchanged clothes (sometimes after lots of negotiating), little by little, our styles have grown together in sync. Here are some of our self-portraits story featuring outfit from ÉLI XILONA and our favorite picks from Second Chance…
Fitria Yusuf is one of those ladies of notable influences - of whom you hear around town as being successful, sexy, and outspoken. And indeed, she's all of those things. Fun, feisty, and friendly. She's a true Sagittarius who lives her life to the fullest. We pumped out this editorial story in a few hours one rainy afternoon. For this special shoot, we featured a Chanel rose gold bag signed exclusively by Karl Lagerfeld himself. "Like myself, this bag also deserves a second chance. Especially that we are both still in mint condition!," said Fifi. And yes, we couldn't agree more.
When we thought about dates and what to really wear, we wanted to show you this super chic couple. And who better than Olivia Lazuardy, the fashion influencer darling, and her man Kalvin! Bold, statement bags from Dior, Hermès, to Louis Vuitton are our picks for this romance-inspired shoot. “f you wanna go with something different and interesting, you can pair your red outfit with other colours such as electric blue,” said Olivia on her tips on a date outfit. Olivia confessed to us she doesn’t wear pink that much, so she would rather go for something bold rather than sweet for a first date. We say, why not!
Sophisticated, polished, and elegant. These three adjectives might best describe one's first impression of Noi. But she is so much more than just that! Her contrasting blunt and goofy character creates a wonderful extension to her ladylike charm. That morning we shared your typical girl talk 101 -- Chanel bags, the latest sport trend, boys, and everything between. It was a pretty good day.
