Deep freeze has gone, eventually! Layering, to say, gains more flexibility that killer jackets and kitschy tops have been retaking their throne. Thus, I go for hilarious colors and a scent of contrast by matching this off-season Intarsia knit by Alexander Wang with patchwork denim overalls by 3.1 Phillip Lim. I’m relishing in the novelty and versatility of this Intarsia knit that plays with color-blocking borders inspired by sportswear which can always be seen from Prada‘s Spring/Summer 2014 collection. It can either goes with more intricate patterns or just a simple klein blue denim jacket.
Hey there, How is it going buds? I’m updating our new post at Hongkong Hostel.(weeee) Here comes the latest arrival from Jil Sander and Nike(Oops I did it again!) Thus, my logomania collection has by far come to completion, finally, from cloths to clutches, and yes even those slides slippers.
what i bought…
Jil Sander logo embossed clutch | Nike Sportswear logo sweatshirt | Nike ‘Benassi’ slides slippers | Kenzo mesh pouch | Acne Studios‘Rumor’ logo tote
An update (finally!) from the freezing subtropical town after days of being away. Since Thursday is largely in conjunction with #TBT in terms of of social media situation, I’m gonna recap on the past few weeks.
We’d start from my winter necessities featuring these ‘Benassi’ slides slippers, tennis socks, and yes, those track sweatpants that make my comfy and slouchy winter days. And guess what, I’ve been thinking of matching these slides as complements for a winter ensemble put together with a structured neoprene coat and leather shorts.
Japanese dishes and singing that Britney (Oops I did it again!) And I’d never ever feel regret to do it for a triple time.
#OOTD in review! Ranging from a peek into distressed denim to a wrap in a huge teddy. (More #OOTD on my instagram!)
Beyond perfecto! Received my first bunch of invitation from London Fashion Week and these 3D printed iphone cases standing for uniqueness and innovation from Laurel London.
Weee! Here comes my shopping list for February! Seriously I was not intended to hunt for something particular since all the spring pieces were there to come. Yet the final sale on Stylebop.com doesn’t successfully convinced me of not making any purchase. This minimal leather clutch embossed by its signature logo from Jil Sander is the best bet(50% off! C’c'Mon!) I found on Stylebop. Its clean and practical silhouette will definitely make it my next daily essential.
I find myself probably not a Chinese New Year person after having been an active participant in it for over 14 years(since I could ever remember). The traditional masses love red. Thus, if you could ever have the opportunity to ramble around a megalopolis in China on Chinese New Year, you would never be less surprised to find out that you were in a tidal wave of red (or burgundy). Unfortunately I’m not a huge fan of red-all-over. Plus, after embracing the most appropriate form of menswear in a classy three-piece suit and a burgundy coat last year, I’m thinking a sort of red that can be easily told apart from festive air, to say, rebellious red, along with a scent of grunge and destruction.
Black, as a contrasting tone for red, is extensively used in this look with a variety of textures seen saffiano leather, faux leather, stretched cotton, and even pony hair. The only chink of red being an eye catcher is running as a patch shoulder of my favorite plaided shirt by Equipment. It is soft ,fluid, and well executed, while innately triumphing a salute that punks. It’s my first time wrapping a leather jacket around the waist rather than wearing(or more occasionally draping) it (on the shoulders) , and it is being a well embellishment to proportion as a belt will do, yet a far more rebellious one. And yah, eyes on this safety pin bag from Versus by Versace, it adds another rebellious touch to the whole ensemble.
A new outfit post, eventually, after weeks of ‘jet lag’, for the winter break has already got me into a vicious circle of slipslop. In the case that I’m in Shenzhen right now, redundant winter coats can temporarily find their places behind the wardrobe, while subtropical weather allows me a flexible variation of dressing, ranging from resort looks to pre-fall pieces, or even wearing my flirty summer shorts. To be honest, it’s a bit tougher to interpret a highbrow runway signifier like this ‘Moleton’ pullover by Peter Pilotto to linguistic language in realway. Since reproducing head-to-toe Pilotto ensemble is not what I long for, nor my physical figure will give me the permission, I go for a brisk appropriation of slouchy simplicity that is added with a theatrical touch. Whether will you consider those textural mesh-like knitted cables as futuristic creations or feel distaste for them like old-time disco shame, they are well put together with casual striped shorts and Smiths.
