The Swiss mountaintops embrace faint sounds of yodel deriving from a dynamic household somewhere close by. The voices reverberate throughout the sharp mountainside similar to the way thunder travels - 1, 2, 3 - you can even count the distance and direction between the voices. Just close your eyes and listen to that authentic and original sound. Inhale deeply the freshly crisp wind that is seemingly only reserved for a wild landscape such as this.
Amongst Heidi tales and voluptuous territory, photographer Karina Ordell captures Zürich based fashion blogger brother duo Moritz and Oliver Lips in the most natural environment imaginable. Who knew you could scout such intuitive fashion sense amongst the simplicity and grounding sensation that is green grass and wooden housing? Karina nurtures the brothers close relationship, which is what is so appealing about their menswear fashion blog 'Lips Brother' - a creative space where they together create content about their travels, events and collaborations.
Oliver Lips makes his brother and himself into the utmost stylish chaps to be ever spotted along these mile long Swiss acres. He introduces you to classic tailoring and retro hats with the occasional pair of sneakers and a sleek biker inspired leather jacket sneaked in to break up the perceived perception that they are gentlemen of the past. He reminds you that they are rather gentlemen of the present. They want to assure you that they move with the times, even though what they are surrounded by is utterly untouched by mankind’s cruel hands - almost innocent at this moment. The only things shaping their world are the strict forces of Mother Nature - wind, rain and sun. As long as the Lips Brothers have each other, they won’t allow these forces to break their duo. They might be alone together against the strongest of them all, but that doesn’t mean it’s ever appropriate to be anything but on point.
