Eat, Surf, Love in Bali (C) Karine Kong Photography

Eat, surf, love

I have been doing a lot of soul searching recently. Photography is becoming such a big part of my creative life, I was trying to figure out how to include in this blog.

5 Things I want right now: leather skirt & shearling-lined jacket

5 things I want right now!

I spotted this fabulous pencil leather skirt (5) and this new shearling-lined leather jacket (1) before flying to Barcelona and thought they would be perfect for a winter look.

5 Things I want right now! this Popeline blouse & Chloé bag

5 things I want right now!

My friends and I were discussing Chloé bag over the weekend…. One of them was obsessed with the Faye bag. You may have seen the brown version on Lucy Williams’ arm from Fashion me Now. It’s a nice Chloé bag, but personally, I prefer the more boho versions like the Marcie shoulder bag, the Hudson bag with its swishy tassel or even better the Marcie tote (featured above). Since I’m off to Barcelona next week for two days for the launch of a printing product which is going to be very interesting for interior designers and creative people like you, this week’s look is about looking stylish and fashionably sexy in town. So here are the few things I’m obsessed with this week. I’m totally in love with this ruffle poplin blouse (2) I spotted on Happily Grey. The blouse is available at Nordstrom and would look fantastic with these boyfriend jeans or these slim-fit biker trousers. I also love this tie-neck blouse from Mango which is more affordable, different style but it looks great too. This winter coat (1) caught my eyes too but if it’s out of your budget, check out this one under …

STORIES (C) Karine Candice Kong | African Queen 1

STORIES: African Queen

The inspiration for this photoshoot was this photo, which has nothing to do with the result but that’s how inspiration works. A theme, a colour, a person can trigger a whole set of emotions and take your imagination to places it has never been. When I sent the photo to Perrine, she told me she looked nothing like the girl on the photo but she trusted me. We shot at Le Blockhaus. The place was packed and yet it looks like we were the only two people at the bottom of the Dune of Pyla, facing the bay…Photography & Styling: Karine Candice Köng Model: Perrine Fifadji Singer, Dancer & Choregrapher, Perrine will start giving singing lessons in Bordeaux from October 2016.

5 Things I Want Right Now for the Summer

5 Things I want right now!

The weather has been totally amazing these last few days in France and if you’re heading to the sun soon or are off to watch Wimbledon, here is the perfect little outfit for you!

denim & Stan Smith

Denim & Stan Smith

Mila told me that next year, they are not allowed to wear ripped denim in College. Good job I’m not going back to school in September. Ripped boyfriend jeans and Stan Smith are kind of my uniform these days…

5 Things I Want Right Now!

I’m not sure why but I’m feeling very attracted to nude and soft pink lately, considering I’ve never been a pink person but I find these soft hues very pretty and feminine. Steve is back from his road trip in South America so we are going out tonight to catch up on two weeks of date nights ;-)

Isabel Marant SS16 The most inspiring pieces to love & cherish

Favourite looks from Isabel Marant SS16

Which one is your favourite fashion Designer? The one you always go back to? For me, it’s definitively Isabel Marant. Each year, I try to treat myself to one or two pieces that will fit my style, my lifestyle and body shape or at least, will make me look taller or slimmer like the Dickers boots. I’m on my second pair and they have such the perfect height that they lengthen my calves and make my legs look slimmer. I also love how comfy they are.
