I picked this mesh top in one of my thrifting forays not really thinking so much how I'll end up wearing it. It turned to be a good layering piece and it lends a little bit of an unusual edge to my boring Calvin Klien buttondown shirt.

Cocktails For Christine

We celebrated Christine's birthday with a little cocktail party at The Exchange. We went thrifting before that so it was a nice little treat to relax and celebrate, her birthday and the cool stuff we found!


Had a fun lunch at Sesame Noodles with some of Phnom Penh's creative minds: (from left) Claude Garrigues of [cgbcn], Catherine Theron of Kashaya, Julie Schrag of La'or, and Christine Gauthier of Waterlily. We shared chocolate bombs except Claude who had an order for himself.

Black & Blue

I've never been a blue kind of guy. It's a color I associate with uniforms and boring preppy stuff. I've only liked its classic associations when I began collecting Yohji Yamamoto. It's a color he often used besides black. The tee I'm wearing is from Maison Martin Margiela, the AIDS tee, and I've been collecting it. Whenever I can I buy one or ask friends to get it for me. It's a little bit hard sometimes because there's no stockist of Margiela here in Cambodia. And shipment can be more expensive than the actual tee itself so I missed some seasons. I'm lucky to get some older versions in the thriftshop especially the 10th anniversary version and the black tee with black print issue. Hopefully I can find the older versions especially the first issued tee.
