John and Clark are two Philippine-based professional photographers and graphic artists who run Sightline Photo. I met them in Makati, when they were walking around taking photos like I was!
John, on the left, was wearing a blue polo, grey jeans, and sneakers. His complements were a white watch and his Nikon camera.
Clark, on the right, was wearing a red polo, jeans, and black sneakers. His complements were sunglasses and his Nikon camera.
Today I would like to talk to you about another trend that I’ve seen during winter and also now in spring time. It is about sneakers. Maybe you will think, what is there left to say about sneakers? A sneaker is a sneaker! I thought the same way, but when you pay attention you will notice that is not that simple!
Here I will show you the major types of sneaker:
– Colorful ones: sometimes comfort is the most important, maybe you just have a day full of errands in front of you, running from one place to another. In that case, a flat sneaker helps you. But lately girls in Taiwan wear very colorful ones, in bright and neon colors, in a casual but pretty outfit. The one below on the left only has two colors but both in neon, and the one on the right combines many bright colors.

– With wedges: it is the perfect solution if you want to look taller but without wearing heels and now it is applied to sneakers. The wedge is camouflaged inside the shoe, like you can see in these examples, both lace-up and one in soft pink and the other in white and grey.
– With platform: they are also called “creepers” and have arrived to Taiwan from the streets of Japan and Korea, where are a total success. In these photos you have one model in total black and another combining many colors, even on the platform.
What do you think? Have you seen these types in your city? Which one is your favorite?

Last week was the Taipei In Style fashion fair and I will be soon posting photos about the house shows I attended. There I met Oscar, he was with a friend (who will also star a post very soon), and his style immediately caught my eye.
He was wearing a black T-shirt over a white buttoned shirt, black leather shorts, black leggings, and black and white sneakers. Oscar’s complements were his Samsung camera, big black sunglasses, some golden necklaces, a golden bracelet, and a silver handbag.
莊嘉恩 (Zhuāng Jiā ēn) and 顏慧婷 (Yán Huì Tíng) are this cute and smiling couple, that I met in the music festival A Rockable Day.
莊嘉恩 (Zhuāng Jiā ēn), the boy, was wearing a white T-shirt with blue stripes, light brown 3/4 length trousers with dark brown dots, and red Converse. His complements were a green shoulder bag and a Canon camera hanging on his neck with a colourful strap.
顏慧婷 (Yán Huì Tíng), the girl, was wearing a grey T-shirt, a dark grey overalls and sneakers with floral print. Her complements were some bracelets, a ring, a watch and a necklace.
Ling was with a friend, Lan (who also starred a post here), in Songshan Cultural Park, where the Chanel’s exhibition “The little black jacket” took place.
