Charles & Keith Ngee Ann City Flagship Opening

30/09/2013, Accessories, Charles & Keith, Fashion and Style

As some of you guys already know, I recently went to Singapore to take part in the Charles & Keith festivities at the newly-opened flagship in Ngee Ann City. My beloved Yoshiko Kris-Webb (who I haven’t seen in ages, flew in from Tokyo), Liu Wen (who looked MAJOR in Calvin Klein Collection), Daniel Henney and K-POP Girls Generation were also there. In addition to the store opening, Charles & Keith held a runway show and an after party. Fun times!

Austerity

24/09/2013, Acne, Balenciaga, Current Affairs, J Crew, Missoni

I know, I know. I’m a bit late in the game. I initially had doubts buying these Balenciaga cut-out boots at Barney’s. They first released these boots (for women) centuries ago but when I saw them on the men’s section for the first time during New York Fashion Week, I knew I had to get them. It’s a no-brainer purchase.

Are you excited for fall? I am! I’ve decided to stock up on outerwear this season. I bought this Acne Studios coat (dubbed the “Era”) on my trip to Stockholm last month. I know I’m gonna get major mileage out of this piece. Outerwear (ie. jackets and coats) is the most crucial thing one needs in the upcoming cool months. If you are a keen observer of my personal style, you’ll know that I’m a coat person vs a jacket person. There’s something comforting about wearing a nice, big coat. I like how it envelopes you and sometimes, the simplest, frills-free coat can be the chicest thing in the world.

Loewe x Junya Watanabe Collaboration

24/09/2013, Accessories, Acne, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Junya Watanabe, Loewe

It’s been quite awhile since I last obsessed over a designer collaboration. I must say Junya Watanabe Comme des Garcons’ capsule collection for Loewe is nothing but spectacular. I love the rendition on Loewe’s iconic Amazona bag and of course, the jeans — a delightful melange of leather, denim, suede, and different textures and fabrics.

Prada Spring Summer 2014

21/09/2013, Fashion and Style, Prada, Spring Summer 2014

You must be living in a different planet if you haven’t seen Miuccia Prada’s blockbuster spring-summer 2014 collection. Her usual venue, Via Foggazzaro 36, turned into a museum of all sorts, thanks to the murals on the walls featuring artists she cherry-picked. Talk about a visual and sensory feast! Don’t even get me started on the colourful, intarsia furs. Or when Britney’s latest track, “Work Bitch”, blared through the speakers. This is definitely one of those Prada shows that you get so high from watching and everything else after that is a downer. Bravo!

Socialyte Gala

19/09/2013, Current Affairs, Express

I recently attended the Luisa Via Roma’s Socialyte Gala Awards, held at The Box in New York City. I won an award! Thank you so much for those who voted for me in my category — Industry Choice (Men’s) Award. I wore my favourite shiny DSquared2 tuxedo jacket to the event – and blinged it out with a Cartier bracelet and Express watch. Quite a mix eh?

Made For Walking

19/09/2013, Accessories, Ad Campaigns, Fashion and Style, Stuart Weitzman

The legendary and iconic Kate Moss is the star of Stuart Weitzman’s fall 2013 campaign dubbed “Made For Walking”. I love how Kate was styled in her usual self — the hair, the big, chubby coat (so Kate Moss), the pea coat and the turtleneck in conjuction with selection of Stuart’s boots. So effortless…

Simplicity

15/09/2013, Accessories, Cartier, Handbags, Jason Wu, Saint Laurent Paris, Smythson of Bond Street

I don’t know what it is but lately, I’m obsessed with simplicity. I love the idea of keeping everything to the bare minimum. Why carry a bulky bag when a small, clutch will do? Why bring a heavy wallet when there’s the lizard case option? Why wear a bangle when you can sport a chic, thin, gold bracelet? Why carry a packet of cigarettes and a lighter when you can get your nicotine fix via NJOY e-cigarettes? There’s something about well-chosen little things that pack a lot of punch.

Between The Shows

10/09/2013, Celebrity Gossip, Current Affairs, H&M

Over the weekend, I stopped by at Omar’s in the Greenwich Village for the H&M x Vogue “Between the Shows” party. Fun times all around! Notable attendees include Doutzen Kroes, the ferocious Alessandra Ambrosio, Leigh Lezark, the Jonas Brothers, Constance Jablonski and more. My personal highlight of the night though was when the super lovely Taryn Manning came up and introduced herself as I have posted a screenshot of her character on the show “Orange is the New Black” on my instagram feed a couple of days ago. I’m beyond obsessed with that show. Obsessed!

Romantic

05/09/2013, Acne, Adrienne Landau, Cartier, Chanel, Christian Dior, Current Affairs

New York Fashion Week officially begins today which means today is also the first day of fashion month. I thought I’d share some photos Rumi and I took while having lunch at Zink Grill in Stockholm, one of our favourite lunch spots. Calm before the storm, as they say. I’m so happy I had some “down time” with my best friend before the madness begins. It’s gonna be crazy over the next few weeks — there’s New York, there’s Milan, there’s Paris, there’s the trip to Los Angeles for a day for Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood event in between, then there’s Paris again for more shows. Lord have mercy on me. As Emily once said, “I love my job, I love my job, I love my job.” Wore my Acne Romantic sweater with a pair of trousers from Theory.

Be sure to follow my fashion week adventures on my social media outlets! I’m also covering the Prabal Gurung show and afterparty on behalf of NJOY e-cigarettes so be sure to follow @NJoyecigs and #NJOYment.
