North Korean Interior Aesthetics Photographed by Oliver Wainwright.

The Guardian’s design and architecture critic Oliver Wainwright traveled to North Korea in 2015. Thankfully he brought a camera with him to document the country’s eerie aesthetics!

 

I had to cancel all push notifications about North Korea this summer because they just gave me too much to worry about. Everything about North Korea is so fascinating yet frightening to me. Perhaps this is why I am so enthralled by Oliver Wainwright’s photographs?

What strikes me the most is how I seem to have the exact same taste in interior design as Kim Jong-un. If I were a dictator, I too would decorate my country like a Wes Anderson-inspired doll house. A marble statue of myself placed in front of a neon pink sunset? *my literal dream*

Parekh and Singh – Indian Indie Pop with a Wes Anderson Aesthetic.

The music video to ‘I Love You Baby, I Love You Doll’ by Parekh & Singh is everything I have ever wanted and more. A combination of India and Wes Anderson-aesthetics? Yes please!

 

The Kolkata based indie pop band Parekh & Singh consists of musicians Nischay Parekh and Jivraj Singh. The music video to  ‘I Love You Baby, I Love You Doll’ was shot on a budget of just US$5000! Consequently the duo had to DIY location scouting and art direction themselves. This Wes Anderson inspired music video is such an Internet gem!
