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.

Severe Acne Problem

02/09/2013, Acne, COS, Current Affairs, Ferragamo, Prada, Saint Laurent Paris

Houston Stockholm, we have a problem.

Ever heard of the phrase “Stockholm Syndrome”? Here’s a little fun fact for you — in 1973, several employees of the former Kreditbanken in Norrmalmstorgwere held hostage. During the standoff, the victims became emotionally attached and even defended their captors after they were freed. The ground floor of the same building is now the home of the Acne flagship store in Stockholm. The rest of the building now belongs to Nobis hotel where I stayed at for a week. You could only imagine how often I went downstairs to Acne. Rumi and I must’ve been there at least twice a day. I literally bought something new every day. It was so awkward telling staffers that it was somewhat pointless to wrap my purchases in tissue paper (and huge paperbags) because I’m literally staying a few floors up.

Oh Acne. Acne, Acne, Acne. Why oh why do you make some of the most relevant clothes around? You’re so dangerous to my bank account.

Don’t Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve

02/09/2013, Alexander Wang, COS, Current Affairs, Saint Laurent Paris, Stockholm

Välkommen till Stockholm! Words cannot express how nice it is to be back in Stockholm aka Stockhome. I used to go to Stockholm at least four times a year MINIMUM but my schedule this year stopped me from coming back sooner. This trip, thanks to Fashion Networks Europe, feels like a homecoming to me, not to mention a celebration of different milestones. Rumi and I first bonded and sealed our friendship in Stockholm (during fashion week) a few years ago so to be back at the same exact place is special. It’s also amazing to see some of my closest and dearest people in my life in the same city. Y’all know who you guys are. Talk about a reunion of all sorts.
