Memories of last summer (from the archive)

Ha ha ha! So it is the middle of winter, and we are posting photos of people wearing t-shirts and mini-skirts. What is up with that?!?
Apologies for letting the blog slip in recent months, but we have been really buried with organizing the fashion shows, events and forming a company. ISS has grown so much over the last year... Anyway, we will do our best to keep everything up-to-date, :-) well... right after these gems from last summer:One of my personal favorites, this photo says it all about the carefree style on great summer days. Merve Tuna just before sunset, at Radar Live on the Black Sea coast.

Taking a break, backstage at The Hall. Mustafa abi! My cool amigo, always great to see you when I'm on a visit to the homebase mekân. (Photo also featured in TimeOut Istanbul Magazine, October edition)

The beauty of Beyoğlu's backstreets is amazing in the late summer, lots of staircases and hanging plants. Ideal for a photo shoot! Perpetually stylish designer Melis Binay only adds to the beauty of the location. The two outfits pictured here she made herself, by hand.

Our very own editor-at-large and chief of everything cool Seraphima, near Babylon. All rise!

Talented amigas Ebru and Zeynep having fun on the boulevard. See you at the Factory. :-)

Wonderfully fun Nuray at the Galata outdoor cinema space. Great place it was and good times for sure, eh? Tres chic, cnm.

And one more from Nuray, about a month later with her buddy, that I took for the October issue of 2'debir Magazine. Super style, ya! Vintage shirt is truly one-of-a-kind, and so is she.

Galatasaray afro chillin'.

Fashion editor Buket Baydar on a Nişantaşı afternoon stroll. Gotta love the shades!

Life on Istiklâl, two street-wise angels in front of the sugar shop. Summer days, gone bye bye. Love the pink shoelaces, here's to keepin' it real...

One of our top-models Alex Borisov, who is definitely headed for the big-time someday. (Alex: call Hedi Slimane right this minute! He needs you.)

Serra smiles lovely for Istanbul. We love your wicked style, yo.

Risa brings Tokyo style to Istanbul. Cool overalls and shoulder tattoo.

On a shopping mission, we run into Ozlem! So fun to see her again. She was one of my first style photos, way back in the beginning of ISS.

hi dear stylish collègue

i'm Kamel, from Paris

i quited TV univers to create a street style blog that shows Paris through street style photo romances.

I like to mixe stories and real styles because it's a way for me to humanize fashion.

After 6 months of street style hunting and bloging, 3000 photos, i've been asked last week if i could create a street style press magazine in Paris for july. i am very glad because it'"s a great challenge and i've never done that before.

i don't know if you can succeed because I hope that everyone could help me because i'll have to find photos from all over the world that means creating a network of street style photographers

I'll be glad to switch links with you.

My blog's name is : STYLE AND THE CITY - PARIS

have a look to my photo romances and tell my what you think about..

Some stories are translated in english : click the english flag


thank you very much for your new friendship
