That 3.1 Phillip Lim Shearling Coat

21/12/2014, Burberry, Current Affairs, Jil Sander, Joseph, Louis Leeman, Phillip Lim, Stockholm

Over dinner last year, the designer Jason Wu, upon seeing his multi-strap lizard sandals on my feet, told me that the biggest compliment a designer could get is not getting a good show review from a critic or a celebrity wearing clothes pulled out by a stylist but actually seeing a client, a customer, buy and wear things a designer made. His PR people didn’t send me the sandals; I bought them full-price. Jason made perfect sense.

Speaking of buying, there are very, very few designers who I consistently shop from season after season. One of them is Phillip Lim. I simply adore what he does. A running joke amongst my friends is that 3.1 Phillip Lim should just go public in a few years because I buy so much of his clothes that I’m practically a majority stockholder. What isn’t there to love about Phillip Lim’s world? He makes really cool clothes that are easy to wear. His pieces are well made. Also, you’ll never feel like you got robbed at gunpoint after shopping at his store. His price points are justifiable. I haven’t seen a $2,000 neoprene or worse, cotton, sweatshirt from him, thank god.

I fell in love with this (click multi-color patchwork shearling coat) after seeing it at his fall/winter 2014 fashion show earlier in February. When Look 15 came down on the runway, I told myself, “that’s THE one!” It’s *my* coat of the season. I consider fur/shearling coats as a “major” purchase like how the average person consider “cars” as a major purchase. As such, I only allow myself to indulge to one major coat per season. I bought the coat in August when I got back after my summer holiday in Ibiza and have been praying for cold temperatures since. I mean, who, pray tell, is in their right frame of mind when they buy heavy winter coats when there’s a heat wave outside? I know, I know I’m one of those people who like to buy clothes early and have them gather dust in the back of the closet until the mercury drops.

I love my coat. LOVE. LOVE. I can’t even.

It’s only January but I’m so thrilled to get my hands on the new Spring 2013 merchandise that’s slowly trickling in at my favourite shops. This metallic Burberry Prorsum coat is pretty major. I’m not afraid of anything that shines!

Lake Tahoe Pit Stop

12/08/2012, Burberry, California, Current Affairs, Nevada

After a week’s worth of desert, drought and desolate sceneries, we drove from Reno, Nevada to oh-so-gorgeous Lake Tahoe. It’s refreshing to see traces of greenery and civilization once again. Lake Tahoe is so beautiful.

How gorgeous was Christopher Bailey’s fall/winter 2012 collection for Burberry Prorsum menswear? I’m dying over the sharp suiting (!!!!!!), the accessories and some of the coats; love the khaki trench with the stripe details at the bottom, ditto with the knitwear.

I love the details of these two tops from the spring/summer 2012 Burberry Prorsum show earlier. It’s all about squares, rectangles and triangles.
