ALTER EGO

_DSC4418

I believe we all have a hundred different facets that reveal themselves in different circumstances. Whether with certain people, certain situations, or certain periods in life, our minds have a multitude of layers. I don’t think that we are born and remain with one way of being. Our perception of things evolves and changes as we go through life and experience more of it, which is so beautiful, isn’t it? I’ve always been all about embracing an open mind and there’s not a single day when I don’t ask myself a thousand questions. I am perpetually questioning everything that is around me to a point when it’s sort of unbearable. Like, have you ever wondered why you may like one color while your friend doesn’t? Do you perceive color in a different way? Or, why does our taste for certain foods change over the years? Why is it that we change? Why is it that we are all unique and have such distinctive characters. Are we born with it? Is it a result of education or of life itself? There are so many different elements that define who we truly are deep within, and I believe these are forever evolving.

So, how does one properly capture one’s essence? I like to think that values build our personalitys’ canvas and this might highly depend on the way our parents have raised us. I know for a fact that living in three completely different countries with clashing cultures really opened my mind and taught me to have a broad vision. I had to be flexible, tolerant, receptive to and curious about things, adapt very quickly, make new friends on the spot, but also not be afraid to move again (which is sort of the “unfortunate” skill I developed that is now useful as I travel so much and tend to miss my family and friends all the time). I’ve learned to hit my benchmarks no matter where I go and this is really all a result of the kinds of people I surround myself with. There’s nothing I appreciate more than spending a quiet evening with my best friends, having deep conversations. Sometimes, a single conversation can completely change everything. It can shift your way of thinking… and eventually, your life.

When I say everything, I mean the way you approach or envision things. I read this fascinating article about the humain brain and how it can foster one of two distinctive types of mentalities, the growth mindset and the fixed mindset. The growth mindset mostly represents creative people, all about deeply furthering one’s analysis of things and never shutting down the learning process. The fixed mindset, on the other hand, embraces the knowledge already learned, has strong opinions and values, and perpetuates them overtime without having a particular interest to see things differently. People with fixed mindsets tend to be more methodical and mathematical. We are all so different and yet when we come together and share our stories, magic happens.

Lately I’ve been spending so, so, so much time songwriting and been very, very present in real life. I mean, actual life, off the computer. Maybe that is also the reason why I post less…! Oops. Please excuse this guys. You know that each time I’m back, I have bags of things to tell you about. And we get to know each other on a deeper level, which is fantastic isn’t it? With each experience, good or bad, a song gets filled with emotions and layers. The tracks are all coming together, which is so exciting… and yet, as I sat down the other day to listen to them, I realized that the person who was singing all the words comes off as someone so different from who I am used to showing publicly. I grew up as an only child and used to spend so much time on my own, creating. This process made me explore the depths of my consciousness, places where it’s not always all pink and cotton candy fluff. I learned to embrace melancholy as something beautiful and something that nourishes my happiness, because without bad there is no good. I have to say, in my music, my words are very much tortured, vulnerable, weak, and sometimes even twisted.

I think you will be very surprised to discover the universe of my songs, which is so different from what you’ve known of me these last four years. It’s a layer that usually shows only when I am by myself, but when I do music, it’s like the whole world shuts down and this hidden side comes out again. Sometimes, I even like to project myself in situations I haven’t fully experienced, wander in the obscure places of my mind to build fantasy worlds and get curious about who I could have been if my life turned out a different way. This is why I wanted to call this article Alter Ego. It’s to celebrate these different, deeper layers we all have in us and this “alter” self we can from time to time project ourselves to become, as if we’d channel a character. I’ve lately been having fun wearing wigs, and more specifically a dark bob that I actually wore when going out. I found that a completely different side of my personality comes out as soon as I put it on, and it’s so fun to see people react to it!

In this series of pictures I channelled these different characters: Stella, Miranda, Lexi and Ivy (you guys met some of them on Snapchat already!) each one of them with it’s very unique, crazy story. I had the best time ever projecting myself in their shoes and letting my self feel what they’d feel and see what they’d see. The whole shoot is inspired by Steven Klein’s modern, yet frightening aesthetic with a little spice of David Lynch’s strange surrealism. Cibelle and I shot these in L.A. near Beverly Boulevard on one hot afternoon, and here is the result. Enjoy their stories.

P . S I wanted to specify as it can be confusing for some, that the stories you will read bellow aren’t based specifically on my life experiences neither has the text been written as my own self. These are projections of certain characters, like a comic book heroin whose personality is exaggerated for the purpose of the Alter Ego conceptualisation. It’s an idea, sort of like a mini story explaining the life of each one of these girls who all have their very unique personalities, which I think we can all find ourselves in.

S T E L L A - RAVEN 

She wakes up and lights up a cigarette before even considering coffee. That’s just her preference. Not that it fills her up completely… she doesn’t even smoke it. It’s just nice to start the day with some soothing, gray, dusky mist, like one of Charles Baudelaire’s poems. She then puts on her black lipstick and rolls her eyes to her reflection, because there’s nothing more boring than narcissism… or any kind of self absorbed activity, in fact. This is why an old, cheap Nokia phone is the only communication tool she allows herself to carry. And if someone doesn’t like that, well they can just drop her a letter. In the mailbox.

She’d drive but she prefers to take the metro, just so she can stare at people in the eyes and imagine what each one’s name and occupation might be… Until it eventually becomes awkward. Which tends to happen more than often. She then rolls her eyes, again, because it’s amusing how people get scared when they’re being looked at for too long… They get uncomfortable and move differently.

No one really knows what she’s doing during the day, but at night she’s working in a bar, serving beers and having here and there conversations, some meaning full, some not, with strangers, ones she’ll see again, and those who never come back. And yet, she always keeps a little notebook filled with notes and sketches of the faces that come and go and the strangest conversations she might have heard… the ones that touched her heart and soul in the most curious ways.

M I R A N D ABEAUTY BEHIND MADNESS

Miranda is a short haired girl that rarely goes out without her dark, cherry lipstick. In fact she rarely goes out at all. The day scares her off. Not that she is a vampire of any sorts, even though her white porcelain skin is something she tries her best to take care of. No. There’s something about the brightness, the exposure and the awkwardness of day light that makes her wanna stay in until dusk. It’s the lack of mystery, a certain absence of grace that she tries to escape as much as she can. The subtle light, the late evening flare, it’s when the shadows come and dance on the skin and the bright lights of the city awaken, when the colors get darker, blurring our vision, smoothing the imperfections and letting it’s strange mystery float around… that’s when Miranda wakes herself up from her usual nap time, pushes Igor, her loyal, fluffy black cat away and pours herself a glass of cold almond milk before putting on a pair of black satin sandals to get ready.

She’ll walk in the middle of the night by herself, cherry on the lips, sound of her heels resonating in the empty streets. Her walk is somehow frightening, like a clock that ticks or a bomb that waits to explode, but never does… just a cold, sharp “clack, clack” that freezes the street while she moves around slowly, yet with all her focus, elegance and determination, like a feline, perfecting each and every single of her long, fluid movements.

She seduces without even trying. And she loves it. In the end, however, she doesn’t want to be someone’s pretty toy… she adores the game, the pleasure of the endless chase. Especially when she is the predator. It’s like playing chess, no different. However, for some reasons her heart always remained a rock to sweet words caressing her ear. Love isn’t of her taste. It’s somehow boring and sad, it seems. She much more prefers to sleep by herself, in the comfort of her dark, black wooded bedroom where minimalistic art and graphic or nude photography by Helmut Newton fill in the space, surrounding her with still, frozen beauty and comforting her in her enjoyable loneliness.

 L E X I – DARK LADY

It always felt to Lexi as if she came from another world, maybe because she never really fit in… or because she never really wanted do. Something deep within always pushed her to think she was different, and she never really knew if it was a good thing or not, but learned to embrace it. In her own way. As a kid, she used to draw pages and pages of Japanese inspired horror comic books, that was her ultimate fun. Until her teachers caught her doing so in the middle of the classes, landing her each week in detention. It’s okay though because no matter what, attending school was just a way to please society. She already knew all she needed to know.

Science, however, always fascinated her. The very action of trying to understand each object under a hundred thousand different perspectives, observing it and analyzing it to have a greater, broader scope of vision is her thing. Sometimes, during quiet afternoons, she’d sit on the cold, white tile floor of her bathroom and play for hours on her old Rubik’s cube, assembling it in just a few seconds and then messing it up again in the most complex way possible to solve it for the fun. Her mind runs like a horse,  a drum machine that just won’t stop pounding beats on repeat.

Insomnia keeps her awake at night and often, at 5am when the soft morning light projects the first strays of sun, she’d sit on her knees, in her bed, her shutters covering her face with dozens of linear shapes and she’d open one of her old magic books, the ones she’d gotten in old, dusty libraries and drowns in this mystical world that always intrigued her. She believes in the energy of things, the forces of nature. Fear occupies a very little place in her heart, the rest replaced with an immense curiosity to unravel life’s most intriguing mysteries. Questions… So many questions. She is fascinated by the future and what it holds and even found some answers in the cards that she plays to get herself to sleep. If anything, her rituals are away to protect her beloved ones. She likes to think she can become somewhat of a protector that came down from somewhere far away to stay in the shadow, yet look over and protect the ones she cherishes.

 I V Y - DOWN TO BUSINESS

Nobody can ever tell Ivy a word without her having a hundred things to say back, and eventually shut everyone’s mouths. She has never been here to mess around, it’s either straight to the point or she’s out. Why complicate life? Things are after all so simple and time is so precious. Time is everything. Ivy has always been very forward, not only in regards to her career but speaking of her life in general. Born in the tinniest, dirtiest, most boring part of the city, a suburb where average age doesn’t get much younger than 75 years old, she lived in a small 1 bedroom apartment with her entire family, and three dogs. It’s not a big wonder why she had to get the hell out there as soon as possible and make her own living.

Her skills at school would overpass all of her fellow friends who’d eventually start stealing her homework and books to copy all of her notes. She’d of course never let them and end up fighting with half of her school which regularly lead her to come back home covered in bruises and cuts. Her father always wanted her to be a boy, and in fact, she always wanted to be one too. She loved the hustle, the battle, the dirt. And her attitude was nothing but classy, rather bulky and quiet insensitive. She liked working at this local burger fast food stop to earn her pocket money and save it up for later. She knew at time would come where she’d need it. And the smell of fries and cheese somewhat soothed her in a way.

Her best skill however has always been to find stuff out, to dig and learn stories about everything, everyone and anything which eventually got her to become somewhat of an underground agent, or spy as some would call it. Her eager mind, precise focus and ability to get out of any situation by manipulating things around her got her the job of a lifetime and she finally moved out of her her old town to come to the big city. She spends her days rolling in her black  truck, taking photographs, following mysterious suspects and living through the shadows of strangers whose sins only she knows.

Awesome article and spectacular shots! I love the idea of you representing these four different characters and in some ways the way they are linked to you. Really can’t wait to hear your songs! Enjoy your stay here in Europe!

Continues, no one will stop you and you are the best. I would like to write more and express my love for you but I am in the translator and it is difficult.

I love you with all my heart and I am your fan Denisse Marquina.

WOWOW!! I love how editorial these look and love the stories behind each alter ego! You have a wonderful voice in writing and I can see how you reveal little bits of yourself through each character.

Flawless execution & love the editing on the photos. This is just too good *insert hands up emoji*

Wow Kristina…you took blogging to a whole new level. First of all, I really enjoyed reading the entire post; it’s posts like these with substance and a lot of thought that I prefer, even if they are posted very rarely, rather than short ‘here’s what I wore!’ posts everyday. I honestly can’t wait until you release your EP and we get to hear your music. You seem to have been working on it for ages, perfecting it to every little tune and lyric and I’m sure it’ll be incredible and stand out.

Second of all, I love the idea of this alter ego mini series. Each character with her defined personality and habits, they reflect a bit of every one of us I’m sure, and the photographs and unbelievably breath taking. They’re very editorial-like, with incredible quality and I can tell you and Cibelle put a lot of thought into them. Great job you two.

Lubna Omar | http://WWW.ELLEVOX.COM

Brilliant, Kristina! Just an amazing way to tell us how you are

honestly, you just blew my mind! I love the way you write!

Stella character is the best one among the two others, because she’s fierce and charismatic!

I am speechless.. You’re something else Kristina

With ❤ from Tanzania

What an amazing article – I absolutely love it! I totally agree with you. Everyone has different characters which make each one to a uniqe person. Therefore nobody should be afraid to show the world their different Lexis and Mirandas ;)
It seems like these four women are really important in your life and I think everyone should think a bit more about who they really are in the different situations in life.
Thank you for inspiring me and I really hope to read more posts like this from you:) And I’m looking so forward to your music – Can’t wait! :)

This is amazing, Kristina! I always loved and admired your creativity, but this is something even more excited! I am so happy that you broke the norms of what an usual fashion blogger would write and allowed yourself to get inspired and write these little stories. See, this is why you inspire me and my blogging career, because you show everyone that you can make it by being yourself and allowing your creativity to grow, and not by being a copy of others.

You’re great and I am sure your music will reflect all your creativity and inspiring thoughts even more, looking forward to it!

Kisses,
Diana

I don’t know if I believe that people have an alter ego, I’m sure some do, but I think for most of us it’s just that we have a true self that’s maybe a little fierce and arrogant or not, and that is who we really are. We are that true self when we are alone or with people we trust and have unshakable bonds with. Then we become a different more socially acceptable person when we are meeting new people, or with acquaintances. Gorgeous pictures as always, that dark wig really suits you!

Love Kiran x

skiing girl 1 September 2015 / Reply

Such a great article! :) It’s been a long time since I wrote my last comment but this post really impressed me. It’s funny how I can totally relate to everything you wrote. I have experienced a couple of tough months and my life has been somehow out of balance. Although I still wish everything would be different, I have learned to know totally different sites of my personality. And thats great. Because like you said: we all have different facets. I could have never imagined that I would go interrailing all by myself. I never thought I could miss someone as much as my ex boyfriend. I never realized that my home actually is where I am right now and that I’m happy to be here.
It’s fascinating how we learn something new about ourselves each day. And seeing how we react in new situations makes us stronger, because the second time we will know. Maybe that’s why so many old people seem so happy and calm?

You are truly inspiring and even though it’s kind of sad you don’t post that often anymore, I’m more than happy that the quality of your posts is even better. Many other blogs just produce more of the same, but your articles always seem to have some deeper content. That’s what makes Kayture so special. :)

This is so amazing. I love how you already tend to put a lot of thought into your style posts, and this one goes way above and beyond. Super cool! Love the shots too of course.

This is by far the best article I have read by you. Love all 4 characters and the photographs are fantastic! Well done!

Truly enjoyed the beginning of what you shared about the different facets we all exude day to day – from one moment to the next. It’s due to these multi layers why fashion – one of the most accessible outlets of art – is of such big interest to women and men. It’s one of the only creative outlets many people – despite talent or interest – can really interact with on a daily basis, to express who they are.

Some people may love layers, some people may love simplicity, some love gold jewelry and some love simple jewelry. But no matter what, people are earnestly just being themselves :)

I find those photos technically very beautiful but also hypersexualized, which is kinda strange since I can’t see any human being on those pictures… but an appealing/shiny/vinylic/call it-whathever-you-want female body, only. Just like an add for a fashion magazine that is taking women for bodies dressed to be desired, appealing…and it freaks me out when a girl accepts to pose according to this image she gives of herself… All she gives is an image. Not a mind, a personality, a human being, but the perfect image of an hypersexualized body. :(
Sorry for this sad thought. You have such an amazing blog but this photo shoot just suprises alot!

Oh my God, Kristina, this is amazing, and beautiful. Not just the stories about the characters (which are crazyy, in a good way!), but your view about life and about everything. Great great article! Regina **

Je suis fan de la robe de Miranda er j’aime beaucoup la personnalité de Lexi. Bravo pour ton écriture, j’imagine bien la petite Kristina dans sa chambre en Suisse entrain d’écrire plein de petites histoires!!

I really enjoyed diving into all of the personas you described. I think I liked Miranda’s the best. Nice work – this is so creative and fresh!

Kristina, I have followed you since the beginning and I’ve seen your transformation into a great and amazing media influencer. Now, in these pictures I see that you are exploring other “selves” of you but the thing that I like the most on your blog is that doesn’t matter how big you become, you still like to write and share your thoughts and stories keeping Kayture with Your personal touch. Keep sharing with us these amazing photoshoots that always tell us great stories. ;)

I suck love your music and you’re once of my biggest inspo everyday

These photos are beyond amazing! I believe that we all have many different sides to ourselves and that’s why I love fashion so much, you can express all these different sides through dressing up!

Great post!

This is a killer post, Krisitna! So brilliant of an idea for a post and every shot is beyond beguiling! Love the Dark Lady character and her blue stained lips! Kudos to you for being so dedicated to this article and taking the shots in the scorching LA heatwave! xo

Kisses,

I believe this is what you call taking blogging to a whole ‘notha level! I love these characters, Kristina! Fashion is all about being creative not just with outfits, but with telling stories and you quite possibly tell the best alongside Nicole over at Gary Pepper in terms of the fashion industry! xo

I completely agree with you. We all have that other side of us that we are afraid to show, but we should embrace aourselves, because that other side makes us different, unique.
I just love your writing. And your stories always make me happy!! <3
Xo, Nika

This is probably my favourite post from you! It is very original, the characters stories and the amazing pictures match perfectly. I feel like Ivy could be my alter-ego :)
Well done, this is such an awesome post x

What a beautifully written and rich article! Love the concept of alter egos, I believe we all have different “layers” and depending on the circumstance that alter ego comes out. It actually reminds me of acting in some way. Really enjoyed reading this, and the pictures and characters are so intriguing. Well done Kristina! x

The best post so far !
I can’t believe what I read. Yet so much truth. The pics are such wonderful pieces of art and your writing skills blew my mind. Here the photos are speaking, I found that really meaningful. You’re not only a beautiful girl in a magazine, who seems deprived of flaws. You’ve some obsessions, bad thoughts, bad moments so the word ‘alter ego” is well chosen. You give us an appearance, sometimes really similar to the “perfect life” one depicted in magazines and encourages by social networks. Despite that, I can easily understand with this article in particular that you’re playing with these characters and it’s part of your life. For sure, everyone can play with characters but it could be hard to find the real personnality under the cover. You try to surpass the limits, great work !

Best regards from Paris

I’m in love with this shooting *_*

This post is very inspirating and thought provoking! The looks are cool and theatrical without getting over the top & the photos have a high editorial level. Your writing is great too and it makes me anticipate your book even more!! I am so happy you do what you love and I’m sure that all your fans would rather see you happy and content and have less posts instead of you feeling forced to oblige to typical blogging rules and make lots of superficial articles. You are truly someone who motivates me because your lessons on life go beyond just material lifestyle advice and it’s something thats applicable even for those of us who currently experience financial difficulties. Everytime you choose to make something out of the ordinary I feel even closer to you and my respect grows and it’s one of the reasons I love the internet because it allows for such “relationships” to occur. Have a great life xx

Wow, this shots are beyond amazing! I like first three alter egos the most! Your poses are great!

Bravo pour le boulot d’écriture et les photos! C’est conséquent.
J’aime bien le début de l’article où tu parles des différentes facettes que nous avons tous.
L’article que tu as lu, je ne suis pas tellement d’accord avec, en tout cas, pour ce que tu nous en dit, dans le fait qu’il catégorise complètement les personnes, il y aurait les créatifs d’un côté, qui remettent en question… les “think outside the box” on pourrait dire, et les “trop sûr d’eux” de l’autre, qui s’appuyent sur leurs opinions, qui sont plus carré et matheux…. mmh… très cliché tout ça.
Sincèrement, après avoir lu quelque chose comme ça, que va se dire le lecteur? qu’il se place du côté des créatifs évidemment… parce qu’on a pas envie de penser qu’on pourrait appartenir à l’autre catégorie, c’est biaisé dès le départ…
Les choses sont bien plus nuancées que ça, nous avons tous de “tout”, mais à certains moments, c’est l’une ou l’autre caractéristique qui ressort.
et à mon avis, nous avons tous quelque chose de créatifs en nous, que nous le laissions émerger ou pas, dans notre carrière ou simplement au quotidien, dans notre manière d’aborder la vie.
Tu as lu Kristina “Libérez votre créativité” de Julia Cameron ?
Je te le conseille, il est très chouette!

A part ça, je rejoins Hohy dans son commentaire, ces images sont hypersexualisées, et ultra retouchées, il n’y a pas de femmes ici, mais plus des représentations très stéréotypées de femme… qui va de pair avec la personnalité que tu leur as inventé, finalement.

Kristina you are the reason I started blogging! I absolutely love what you write and how passionate you are about your career. It inspires me to work hard and do what I love with no shame. Keep up your hard work. You are so successful and intelligent and just a beautiful soul.

Xoxo,

Well written article and nice pics

The blog award obviously hasn’t made you complacent ;) Extra-strong visually and textually; some of those shots look like candidates for a future album cover. All of us have different aspects that wage an internal/eternal tug of war. Like a squad they can all have useful specialties for the right moment, but we can decide which gets to be boss…

Something you might find thought-stimulating -

…or at least scan the back to see if you can be a*sed!

To start this comment off I would like to say how much of an inspiration you are to me. You have such an amazing perception of life and yourself, which I respect greatly. Even though I’ve never met you, I feel like we are friends because your writing is so easy to connect too, almost as if we were having a conversation. Currently I’m an aspiring fashion blogger, how did you turn a blog into a fashion empire filled with photoshoots, fans, fashion shows, travel, etc. Please share your story! It would mean the world if you looked at my blog, I’ve been running it for a year and a half now (it’s still a work in progress, but I’m trying).

Keep posting! I love your article and can’t wait for the next one :)
Love,
Taylor Fiske

The pics are amazing. The first one is my favorite. The black widow seems like a really dangerous woman.

Pray that I don’t get bitten.

This is the first time I read a post on your blog, to be honest I just simply watched your photos in IG or snapchats but I don’t know how curiosity hit me this morning, and I ended up here reading this amazing reflection about our deep selves. You just explode my mind and I am truly fascinated that you express this way and specially share this with us. Couldn’t agree more with you.

Ton article est incroyablement TOI , parfait. Les photos sont incroyables , just breathtaking. Tu as vraiment mis du tien dans cet article et ça se sent ! Je te suis depuis 4 ans déjà et tu m’inspires beaucoup. Merci de me faire rire et deme faire rêver tout les jours en suivant tes aventures sur Snapchat , Instagram ou en lisant tes bons articles.
Merci Beaucoup

You are the definition of creative. I feel like you just lay your heart and soul out every time you write, which is interesting given that you mention the parts of you we haven’t seen yet. You inspire me to truly just be myself on my blog, not try to emulate anyone else. Can’t wait to listen to your music. I know you’ll ace it!

Wauw Kristina! Really, really cool post!! I enjoyed reading about all those characters; very creative and unique. It’s a high level editorial. It shows that you’re a very talented and creative person on many fields, also the writing part. Keep going Kristina!

Un des meilleurs articles de l’année! Ces photos sont vraiment très très belles, et je trouve ça génial de créer un article autour de personnages fictifs (j’avais adoré les backstage “snap” d’ailleurs !). J’espère pouvoir vous rephotographier à Paris pour la FW avec Fiona ! A bientot !

Que lindas fotos!, felicitaciones por tu trabajo!
