A little bit behind, as we’re now in Paris FW hehehhe. But, nevertheless, here’s my favs from the London FW. Enjoy~
With my year-end trip to Hong Kong coming up, I’ve been thinking what clothes to pack. It’s kinda fun to pack for an opposite season (although it’s quite chilly here today in Orange), although I’m planning to leave lots of empty space in my suitcase for what I like to call my ‘harvest’ in Hong Kong! What/where do you go to/consult when planning outfits for a trip away? I go to street-fashion-photography blogs, fashion mags (not those mainstream glossy ones, mind you) and sometimes Pinterest hahah. Speaking of Pinterest, here are some of my favourite fashion pins from my ‘Fashion I Like’ board (judging from the lacking amount of pins, I need to do more pinning work!)

The sun has decided to re-appear since yesterday (after ALL the rain) and I’m hoping it’ll be here to stay for a while. Thus, it feels quite appropriate to browse through summer wear on the net and dreaming of the days when it’ll be sunny enough for a picnic in the park. Here are some of my favs.
Pretty colours from Mew.
The above beautiful outfits from Handsom, where I interned for a bit last year. Wish I could’ve interned for longer! The designer, Sam, is an amazing lady!
Tsumori Chisato. I never fail to enter one of Tsumori Chisato’s stores when visiting HK and her clothes never fail to amaze and excite me.
Very me – although I haven’t worn a dress in ages. I do have a pair of pants similar to the one in the last image though hehehe. Anything plaid and/or checkered and dropcrotch is a tick for me. All 4 outfits above from Salasai.
For people in the Southern Hemisphere – what will you be wearing this summer?
I love anything geometric – looking back at some of my projects, they were geometric in some ways and I even wrote an essay on Buckminster Fuller and his famous geodesic dome for my design history course, haha! Anyway, I’ve been spotting quite a lot of designs with geometrical elements recently, from jewellery to architecture. I also came across quite a few geometric necklaces at the Finders Keepers Markets last weekend – conclusion: everyone loves geometrics! Hehehe
A design concept for Polaroid Eyewear.
The Natural History Museum of Utah by Ennead Architects and GSBS Architects. The geometric facets here are not too overpowering or in-your-face. Just enough subtlety
Jewellery by LOTOCOHO.
Friends Cabinet by Mark Bendow.
Futuristic-looking, light-weight yet strong backpack from Solid Gray.
I’m currently working (busy creating prints) on a collaboration with a friend I’ve known for almost twenty years! The collaboration is a secret for now, but I’ll let you know when we launch. :)
There are a few brands out there which I like mainly because of their beautiful prints. Cute and colourful, and especially if they’re whimsical!
First up, minä perhonen.
Loving the dress above, and these prints below:
Eley Kishimoto with their colourful outfits every season will really bring a smile to the grimmest face.
And then this cute & happy jar!
And an adorable collar for cooler days.
Orla Kiely’s diffusion brand, Olive And Orange is oh-so-lovely as well – these two outfits are so cute! I need! :D
And, one more reason for me to save up for my trip to NYC!
Being an admirer of androgynous fashion and sometimes menswear, it is hard not to love bowties, especially those made of beautiful fabrics. Bowties have been making a comeback in recent years and it looks like they might even be here to stay. Here are some of my favourites. :)
Very cute two-print bowties from Hello in There.
Love this pastel-blue striped one from the famous Forage.
This one from Bowtie Company. Gotta love that stamp!
Polka dot love from Marcello Neckwear.
It’s the first day of November and it’s Movember time. What does that have to do with bowties, you ask? Well…
