Celine and Friends

071125-jeansnow-celine

I was looking through the stacks of photos taken by Sebastian Mayer during Item Idem‘s “Display Sthetics” installation (and our Radio OK Fred sessions) during design week, and figured I’d share a few that include me. Up top, me trying to take some shots of my own. After the jump, me and Marxy (yes, he really is that tall, and yes, I really am that short) and then me and Jesper.

Shinjuku at Night

Shinjuku at night with illuminations, by Yuki. When I tell people that it’s really cold here during the winter, they always comment that it can’t be that bad since I’m Canadian. Well, to quote Yuki, “Tokyo winter is colder than London, because my room lacks good heating.” Despite the -20 to -30 we might have gotten back home (with the windchill factor), central heating in homes at least makes sure that once you get inside you’re nice and warm.
