Haji Lane, Singapore

2010-03-03 4

Haji lane is in the Kampong Glam neighborhood of Singapore. Young people frequent the shop houses along this lane for the independent fashion boutiques and Middle Eastern cafes.

It’s no secret that Haji Lane has been hotter than July for more than two years, especially for fashionista hipsters and indie-label whores. And the truth is, it’s not slowing down – new boutiques spring up constantly, established ones regularly clear merchandises to make room for more, and even suburban mums flock there to get trends in order.

Haji Lane has become a meeting place for the city’s anti-mall crowd. They buy upscale vintage clothing at fanciful boutiques to the latest offerings from Singapore’s independent interior designers. The newest innovators to be found on the street are “blog shops” — retail venues that have sprouted up from shopping blogs. (Pssst! Our Lomo Embassy is only a street away from Haji Lane!)

At night young, fashionable Singaporeans window-shop, chill out and smoke hookahs at one of several relaxed Middle Eastern-style cafes.

    A Salute to the Masters: Bare Soles in Como (A Tribute to Christopher Anderson)

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
