There's something about being on a motorcycle that makes life feel so much more thrilling. Messy hair, sun-kissed skin, the rush of it all! It was hot, humid, and sticky and motorbikes zoomed passed as we snapped these photos on the outskirts of Saigon. This definitely brought out the free spirit - or in Vietnamese "bụi đời" - in me.
I'm always amazed by how many motorbikes there are in the city of Saigon. Thousands...millions, it seems as though everyone is riding on one. This look is inspired by my friend and photographer, Nau JP, along with his biker crew. I channeled my inner biker junkie to portray this easy-going, life-loving, adrenaline-addict fashionista. For this look I went with a simple tank top and denim outfit with some extra umph - the patch details on the jeans and the platform Jeffrey Campbell version on the classic Timberland.
