A Collected Style:

Pre-Fall

Even though we’re in the middle of summer, I’m constantly dreaming of fall.

I took a few weeks off from posting to really rethink and rebuild. I changed my blog around as well as designed a new logo and updated the about, faqs and collaborate  page. Since I’ve lost a lot of weight, I’ve started all over with my wardrobe, I kept a few key pieces, but donated everything else to the goodwill and salvation army. So now I’m prepping for the fall, which is what inspired the look you see above. I’m not a big fan of Adidas, but after seeing how people were styling the Stan Smiths, they really grew on me. I love the classic look as well as the hint of green on the tongue and the back of the shoe. I thought that hint of green would go great with the plaid button down I got from L.L. Bean. I also thought the gray tee and light denim denim jeans would balance out the rest of the outfit.  What do you think of today’s look?

Yoakim Bélanger

Yoakim Bélanger was trained in graphic design at the University of Québec in Montreal. He then ascertained a great deal of experience in photography and multimedia, all of which have paved the path for his artistic endeavour.

The creative skills and knowledge that he has gained from his past experience are quiet integral to his aesthetic process. However, the use of an oxidized steel, marked by history and time acts as the backbone of his art. Consequently, the work of art will come to life long before his paint brush meets the cold metal surface.

From this point, it will only be a matter of time before the acrylic paints and inks are diluted and worked onto steal to reveal his artistic vision.
