It has been a year since I left New York - I am finally back and it feels so good to be here! Last time that I was in the city I took some photos with my friend Mykola, so I had to ask him if he wanted to do that again and so we did.
He had in mind this amazing all marble white corridor he visited during the winter located near the new One World Trade Center building in the Financial District. Seeing the pictures he showed me I directly agreed that it would be a great location to shoot and post the photos on the blog. And, it looks awesome! I like the way the lights are reflecting on the marble, creating this kind of perfect white atmosphere looking like if it was coming right from a futuristic movie.
For this look, I have been inspired by New Yorker's outfits I noticed in the street during my first month staying here.
Due to the heat and unbearable weather I would recommend wearing a lot of white items for this end of summer unless you want to stay hidden in the shade all day long. These white ripped jeans I got from Zara are really comfy and allow you to endure the heat thanks to those nice two holes; they almost feel like wearing shorts but you're still wearing pants. I am also wearing this long-sleeve shirt from COS. The material is so soft and light. You should go check out that store if you've never been there before; they do a lot of very minimalist clothing. There is one in SOHO or you can order on their website if there isn't any where you live. The shoes are the old school white Vans. I am going to really take care of them since it took me almost half a day to find them in a store because I didn't want to order them online; who would have believed that New York City doesn't have its own Vans Store and that the nearest one is in Jersey?
I also wanted to inform you that I am certainly going to post a big article when l will be back home with all the photos I took of the Big Apple, including the ones on Instagram but in better quality.
*Little tip to keep all of that white white: go to a Home Depot store and get a Clorox Bleach Pen, stains won't ever bother you again.
(If anyone living in the city wants to go take some nice photos there - this is the access tunnel to the PATH Train at the World Trade Center station.)
