Clothes Encounters x Kastor & Pollux for MTV FORA





Photographed by: Bianca Venerayan  |  Design & Direction: Danielle Roche  |  Featuring: Jenn Im


A little over a year ago, I publicly divulged the fact that I had a little Youtube ladygirlcrush on Jenn Im from Clothes Encounters. Though I didn’t say it explicitly, my admiration shone through my vague/unobtrusive words – and these feelings carried through from 2012 to 2013; only taking breaks when my Internet data limit reached it’s peak and cut me off from YouTube.

With that said, you can imagine the ~communal~ delight shared between my PIMWA (Partner In Many Wholesome Activities) and I when Jenn took a quick lil’ jaunt over to Canadian soil. The result? An entire afternoon seeing some IRL high ponytail action during a shoot in collaboration with MTV FORA, (and then a couple of non-work related meals after that).

I constantly joke that my job is super #meta (in the best way possible), but sometimes it really IS difficult to decipher whether or not if I should be speaking in first or third person when I’m posting on FORA. For this article, I opted for a more ~casual~ approach, citing Bianca and I as “the girls of Kastor & Pollux” rather than explicitly screaming “ME n MY BFF WAHEHE”. Regardless, Bianca and I are giving away $175 worth of goodies from our summer jewelry collection…and we want you to enter! #truth #facts #freestuff

If this sounds like something you might fancy, head over to MTV FORA to see how you can win all the K&P jewelry Jenn wore in the above look book! :)


Crystal Trio Necklace (not avail online, $30.00), Caeli Necklace ($48.00), Tefia Choker ($26.00), Vesperia Necklace ($46.00), Crystal Necklace (not avail online, $26.00)


To give all of you a bit of background information on the shoot, we essentially wanted to marry all of our favourite things and package them up in a lil’ visually sound GIF look book. Our favourite things of course being 1) Kastor & Pollux, 2) animated GIFs, 3) design that looks like it’s on acid, 4) summer vacations, and 5) Jenn’s face.

(Smartly/wittily/pun-illy) titled “Summer Encounters,” this look book basically entailed us superimposing Jenn onto 5 of her ideal summer destinations – both fictional and non-fictional. Including “Peter Pan’s Mermaid Lagoon” and “The Amazon,” I’d like to go ahead and say that this is the epitome of ~whimsical~. There might be a little bias there…but I don’t care. H8ers.

In short, Bianca and I are so0OOo excited to be sharing this project with you! And now that you’re up to speed with JENN’s Summer Encounters, we would love to know about YOURS!!!
