HYPEBAE Pick: With temperatures steadily increasing, there’s no excuse to just laze around at home anymore. Yes, you can easily take a nice #OOTD snap in bed, but Paris-based Laura Julia Corinne is here to show you how to take your Instagram game to the next level. Cleverly using ball courts and crosswalks as her backdrops, Julia’s photos look like they could be lifted from an actual magazine editorial. Her on-point styling of streetwear pieces from the likes of Vetements, Champion and adidas Originals is also a good reason why you should hit “follow.”
Bio: “Long hair Don’t care”
HYPEBAE Pick: A newcomer to the fashion industry, Japanese model Yuka Mannami has quickly become a favorite of many designers and has walked in runway shows for Dior, Dolce & Gabbana and more. Known for her short, straight bangs and long black hair, the fashion darling’s off-duty style is the perfect combination of vintage chic and Harajuku-cool. On Yuka’s profile, you can also expect to see a bunch of twinning moments between herself and breakout runway star, Fernanda Ly.
Bio: “Image maker. Tokyo”
HYPEBAE Pick: There’s a dream-like element of photographer Cecy Young’s work that reminds us of Wes Anderson movies. Based in Tokyo, the lenswoman always manages to capture the tranquil moments in life with her film cameras. With her aesthetic eye, Cecy has previously been tapped to shoot campaigns for brands including Lazy Oaf, G.KERO and more. If you love pastels as much as we do, you’ll definitely enjoy the images from her feed.

HYPEBAE Pick: This might actually be the very first time we feature an animal as part of our Instagram round-up. Meet Zappa, the cat that breaks the Internet with its cute, mini Supreme hoodie, Carhartt jacket and Nike Air Max sneakers. Hailing from the hip Dutch city Rotterdam, this adorable feline is the ultimate best friend that a HYPEBEAST can ever dream of. Be prepared to say “aww” way too many times as you scroll through its profile.
