Shot on location at the Manila Oceanarium

With all the rain we’ve been experiencing lately, we may as well be living underwater. At least our dreary cityscape can be traded for a view more remarkable, as can be seen at the Manila Ocean Park. An escape from flooded streets, the Oceanarium’s clear tubes and tanks reveal manta rays gliding gracefully above schools of jewelfish and nurse sharks cutting through water like missiles.

Inspired by rainy season blues and the Oceanarium’s wet world of wonder, B/BLOG goes deep into slickly layered clothes and moody shades of midnight, from navy on shirt dresses to cobalt-soaked knits.

Reflecting a life aquatic both romantic and intense, international model Tiago Pinheiro is a dapper young Poseidon visiting land and Jana Stuntz is a lovely mortal seduced.

Expect an affair that goes 20,000 leagues deep.
