Hello Hong Kong!

28/10/2012, Current Affairs, Hong Kong

I’m serious when I say my life is crazy. In a good way. But still, it’s crazy nonetheless. I went to Hong Kong this week for a fun project with Paul Smith. They invited me to style his capsule collection of scarves and pocket squares called ‘Daydreaming With My Camera’ and you’ll see the images on various magazines and press in Hong Kong on November.

I *love* Hong Kong! It’s one of my favourite cities in the world. Terrific service wherever you go, the food is soo good and the shopping is great. After spending almost 3 days flying from (and to) New York City, it’s kinda sad that I could only stay for two days because I have another trip coming up.

Leather Bottoms Fetish

24/10/2012, Acne, Current Affairs, Stockholm

I can’t put my finger on it but clearly I’m on something. I’ve been buying leather garments like mad over the past few months — leather shorts from Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, Weekday, Barbara Bui, leather jackets, leather pants from pretty much everywhere and now this — cropped leather trousers from Acne. All I need is a leather harness. Who knew there’s a Peter Marino in me?

Shine Bright Like A Louis Vuitton Diamond!

17/10/2012, Current Affairs, Fall Winter 2012, Louis Vuitton, Utah

Some of you on Facebook have seen a shot or two from this series that I took during our road trip across Utah and Nevada a few months ago. I know I haven’t blogged this series so allow me to share to you, my dearest blog readers, one of my fave photo sets ever.

So shine bright tonight, you and I. We’re beautiful, like diamonds in the sky. Eye to eye, so alive. We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky. Shine bright like a diamond, shine bright like a diamond, we’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky.

Silver, Glittery Goodness

15/10/2012, Costume National, Current Affairs, Michael Angel

Are you a coat or a jacket kind of person? I’m both. My beloved Ennio from Costume National sent me this amazing, glittery, silver half-jacket, half-coat when I was in Paris. It’s the perfect piece to wear this autumn. I have a feeling it’s gonna get a lot of mileage from me this season. Afterall, I love a bit of sparkle regardless of the time of the day.

Little Gray Riding Hood Likes It Rough

12/10/2012, Acne, Current Affairs, Stockholm

The last few blog entries were kinda fashion-y, I think we need a quick breather. Here’s my take on pedestrian dressing. I feel like this look is so rampant especially amongst young people in big cities where it can get a bit cold. I know I’m probably the last person in the world to wear sweatpants, a white t-shirt, hoodie AND a leather jacket to top it all off. It’s a different look, I agree, but is it comfortable? A little, yes. Is this me? Maybe not. But I like it, nonetheless.

Autumn Rising

11/10/2012, COS, Current Affairs, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada

Do you ever find yourself going to stores and buying the same exact item you already own but in a different colour? That’s what happened when it came to my favourite garment of the moment. I took this cute, green coat from the COS flagship store in Stockholm because I love everything about it — the fabric, the style, the cut, the way it falls on the body, everything. I already bought the navy version (as seen on previous blog entries) in Paris two weeks ago. I wouldn’t be surprised if I end up buying the black and gray versions as well in the next few months to come but really… I like the idea but it’s kinda wrong, don’t you think?

Avenue Montaigne, Paris

11/10/2012, COS, Current Affairs, Jason Wu, Marni, Michael Kors, Paris

Avenue Montaigne, I love you so much. I could spend the entire afternoon mincing around the area. It’s all about Marni and Montaigne Market, followed by a late lunch at L’Avenue and a quick run-through of all the new things at Celine and finally, go off the beaten path by visiting Balenciaga and Givenchy. Don’t you just wish life was this easy? Oh to dream… I suppose Avenue Montaigne is best at small doses. That’s what luxury is all about. Just a teeny, tiny, scoopful. It loses its value if you serve too much…

Metallica

10/10/2012, Balenciaga, COS, Current Affairs, Stockholm, Versace

Talk about love at first sight. Fell in love with this light-weight yet surprisingly warm knitted turtleneck sweater with metallic silver thread chain-mail details from the fall/winter 2012 Versace womenswear collection. I like how it looks oh-so-rock-n-roll tough… but it’s probably the most fragile garment I own. I had to be extremely careful not to break any of the chain links. One wrong move is all it takes to ruin this piece.

Quick Chat With Donatella

10/10/2012, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Versace

I stopped by the Palazzo Versace in Via Gesu in between shows to visit my beloved Donatella. As you know, Donatella and the gang at Versace recently launched their e-commerce site. I thought I’d share her answers to some of my questions. It’s always nice seeing Ms. Versace. I love her energy and spirit.

Balenciaga Special Presentation

09/10/2012, Balenciaga, Current Affairs, Stockholm

I think I’ve reached this stage where I’m (finally) becoming smarter with my purchases. After all, I’m gonna be stuck with the things I buy now for the next few months. It’s always nice to buy very, very few BUT only from the best AND wearing them to death as versus buying a lot of disposable things that you only wear once or twice. I fell in love with these great black trousers from Balenciaga in Paris. The store ran out of the pant in my size so I got it in a size larger than my usual. I’m trying to decide whether to get them altered (afterall, they were meant to be high-waisted) though I must say I love the slouchy effect. I also love how you are not able to see the leather details at the back of the obi-like bow on the front. Secret luxury. The black boots are also from Balenciaga. Picked them up at the men’s store in Rue Saint-Honore. I’m gonna make these boots my everyday shoe. As for the t-shirt, lord have mercy, I know, I know. Please don’t judge me. Thank you.
