Over the years, several things has changed. I have increasingly fallen in love with uncommon and atypical branches of fashion aesthetics. I becoming a fashion enthusiast who willing to spending more on a beautiful and rare piece than a fancy dress worn once or twice. Currently, I found myself coveting over the works of Yusuke Kagari.
Yusuke Kagari is a bag and accessories designer based in Tokyo. He specializes in varnished leather, other distressing processes to make the material look like something out of a post-apocalyptic future, or you can say it's somewhat like the idea of "Ruin Porn". Whether it's peeling paint, rusty rails or graffiti-on-graffiti, each one of Kagari's bags takes around 2 weeks to create the right texture. Kagari draws inspiration from the long-term effects of wear and tear on old buildings in his native Tokyo.
One series of bags, is made to look like a rusted wall.
"Living in the city, in my eyes the continuity created by walls and concrete is one beautiful landscape," said Kagari.

There no words to describe how much I love Bruise bar. The atmosphere, food, drinks(especially their cocktails), services and even the funny quotes on their wall. From the outside, it definitely does not look like they would serve you something good and I know its odd to say this but you would need an adventurous spirit to even attempt go in haha. The food they serve in Bruise Bar is amazing - some of the best raw meat (pork) salad I’ve ever had. The roasted chicken and fish dish are delightfull. Every dish we had was excellent. There are plenty of choices for food and alcohol and the best part is, the prices are very reasonable. If you guys are ever in Taipei, don't miss out on this bar, really. I highly recommend!
Stay tuned for next food guide in Taipei.
I am not a huge fans of earrings but I do love earring style that they're eye-catching without being being over the top.
One of my recent hunt, a stunningly delicate minimalist earrings that utterly steal my heart. What a beautiful, uniquely-shaped set of earrings that easily archive simple and classic look.
