The city is not always a destination. Sometimes it just sits between one place and the next, and people move through it – destined to fit in somewhere else, but caught for a moment out of context. In the incongruity of these moments, there’s a flash of glory – the triumph of a city that’s useful to those who are fleetingly a part of it.

↑HELGA stopped in at O Bun Chef to grab a snack on her way to her granddaughter’s debut fashion show. She’s wearing COAT and TROUSERS by Bianca Spender, SHOES by Kurt Geiger, GLASSES by Gucci (bought before Alessandro Michele made Gucci trendy again), EARRINGS from an Animal Welfare League thrift shop, and T-SHIRT by Commes des Garçons from Incu.
↑ LYLAH is helping her Dad pick up a few things at Kim Wang on their way to a dinner party on Gilbert Street. She is wearing an entire outfit by Zara, and a big band-aid on her knee because she tripped up on the walk over to Chinatown. She’s okay though, Dad gave her a few gummy bears to cheer her up.
↑ LOLA is picking up some Pocky (matcha green tea flavour, of course) from Kuo Chi to snack on at the fashion show she’s heading to in the Adina Tunnels. She’s wearing a DRESS by Self-Portrait from David Jones, SHOES by Tony Bianco, EARRINGS by Cinquante, her BACKPACK is by Sonia Rykiel from Claire Inc. and is a part of her extensive Sonia Rykiel collection.
