В Россию с любовью – Helsinki

A Nordic Fashion photoshoot inspired by the city of Helsinki (which at the moment is by the hipsterati attending the Flow Festival). A city that wants to be modern and urban and cosmopolitan yet clenches to tradition and nature, it struggles sometimes but it always seems to find the right balance.

Finland is stuck literally between the very, very liberal Sweden and the increasingly conservative Mother Russia.No wonder Helsinki is stuck between two different world views, it is a country that has historically been a pawn between both its neighbors.

So it’s only fitting that for this shoot we would play with the Scandinavian urban/rural aesthetics, use Finnish Fashion brands and a Russian Model.

I hope this combo reflects the way Helsinki resembles Brooklyn and its vibrant art/fashion scene and how it plays with its Nordic design tradition through clothes… these are two of the reasons Helsinki is such a fascinating city, at least in my perspective.

Wall Street

Wall Street is without a doubt a symbol of power, in modern pop culture this is the equivalent of a kingdom the prince has to conquer. In this shoot we went from the streets of the financial district to a penthouse across the street from the New York Stock Exchange to bring a modern day tale of love, power and fashion.

Fresh Princess of Helsinki

The early 90’s, that period of time where everything was fluorescent and new. Rap was all the rave and Michael Jackson was the man. Will Smith was without a doubt the most charming dude on TV back then and we wouldn’t even dream about reality television outside the Real World from MTV, and yes Music Television was still playing music.

In today’s post Snooki had a baby days we kinda find comfort in the cheesiness and ridiculous songs by Public Enemy and Prince, those were simpler times… not saying I would go back, hell I wasn’t even 10 back then…. I’m happy with today but it would be foolish to say that the 90’s didn’t shape the way we do what we do today.

Long live the bad hair, flashy clothes, bad/classic music and the inappropriate stereotypes in pop-culture of the 90’s

For YoHipster.com (Miami, Fla.)

Well in the interest of keeping my portfolio complete here are the images that made it and a couple that almost did. This photoshoot was inspired by the big hairdo’s from the Motown/Hip Hop world and old school theatricality. A little bit Williamsburg with a slight Fresh Prince of Bel-Air aroma to round it up.
