good looking knits…

with 2 comments

one of my happy places in hong kong is joyce boutique. over the past few years after the establishment has been bought by the lane crawford group – i have noticed the gradual facelift and the inclusion of more obscure designs.

it’s slowly turning colder in hong kong and it is almost time to bring out the thick clothes again. one of the things on my this year’s winter  wishlist are good looking knits.

first of all, i like knits and it is hard to find a good looking knit. akira naka has knits that make you feel and look like a million bucks.

the london fashion week that started last friday is a 21 billion pound industry. i have always liked london fashion more so than the other european cities like milan and paris.

i like english fashion in general as i find english people quirky and eclectic.i think the average english girl dress better than most as well.

was browsing the london fashion week website and was looking at the list of designers- the list was pretty damn extensive actually.  there was this particular one who caught my eye – david koma

i really like his stuff – very strong, individualistic and origami like feel.

they carry his collection over at joyce boutique. i’d love to check it out.

my memoir with fashion maestros

leave a comment »

janice wong has been writing about one of my favorite topics – fashion since the 1980s. as the ex editor of elle hong kong, she has met a lot of my favorite fashion designers such as tom ford ( my ultimate god), manolo blahnik, julien macdonald, victor & rolf, karl lagerfeld… so on and so forth..

janice launched her book – my memoir with fashion meastros last night at sevva last night. i should be more excited about the book but i was more proud of the fact that my hubby helped her come up with the book title. how come my husband is so smart? haha…

anyways, it was really a night of fashion extravaganza.. almost everyone – the who’s who of the fashion business turned out in full force including joyce ma, the founder of joyce boutique.

janice spoke a lot about fashion pieces carrying the soul of the creator.. i am not so lucky like her i feel. my generation is the generation of disposable fashion. nothing lasts. i always thought women of the past were far more beautiful than the women now, i suppose it’s because they go to tailors and they are included in the process of making a garment for themselves.

which is exactly why i chose to wear my qipao. i told my friend the qipao maker, what i have in mind and he helped me execute it…

congratulations janice.. i love the cover of the book. i like the stitches.. i guess it means a lot.
