The third artist which Absolut Vodka have decided to work with in their Transform Today Campaign is French haute couture designer Yiqing Yin. Yiqing’s style is unique in that she sculpts directly onto the mannequin and experiments while in the heat of the moment. She has received several industry recognitions and in 2013, the prestigious board of Haute Couture in Paris elected her as new guest member to the calendar, which is a remarkable and humbling achievement for such a young designer.
As mentioned in the first instalment of the ‘Simple Rules of Style – here – it’s important that whilst not forsaking your own personal style, it is important to understand a select few rules of style. Understand that at no stage are these the be all and end all of style and I would venture that bucking one or two rules may be the basis for a new look or style. That decision, however, is up to you to make. These rules apply to a classical sense of style, which is my vibe. So I follow them.
I love stumbling upon little gems of acoustic pleasure such as this. Plush is one of my favourite South African bands – find out why here – and I often find myself searching for their live performances on YouTube. I’ve got all their albums and know them word for word so when I discover something like this, I’m stoked! Especially cause it’s live. I’m having a pretty chilled out week and I’m pretty keen to keep those chilled vibes going. Plug in those earphones, turn this one up and enjoy it with me.
