Part II: Luxury Basic 第二部:簡單的好品味

If I have to name one fashion icon as contemporary ultra-influencer, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is clearly my first vote. 如果要我選一位最具影響力的當代時尚偶像, 我會毫不遲疑的投給薩克斯公爵夫人梅根. Meghan Effect 梅根效應 Since her wedding, the Duchess has created the “Meghan effect” not only on the fashion industry but also to consumers’ buying behaviour. Her style as Duchess well presents a …

The Small Flaws in Your Eyes Could Shine You in Life 你的氣場可能來自你眼中的小缺陷

A recent news triggers my thought. It’s a debate sparked by the Spanish fashion house Zara’s recent cosmetics campaign, in which Li Jingwen- one of China’s famous models- shows her non-retouched face with obvious freckles. This image is accused by some Chinese netizens of “uglifying China”. 最近有則新聞讓我相當有感. 幾個星期前西班牙快時尚品牌Zara發佈了彩妝品廣告, 裡頭起用了中國模特兒李靜雯疑似未經修片, 滿臉雀斑的形象照, 引發中國網民抗議辱華的言論. “They are discriminating Asians’ …

About Opportunity 關於機會這件事

If I have to name one thing that’s the most entertaining in the fashion industry in the 2018, aside from the seat changing of designers among brands, definitely the rising and the take-over of celebrity kids will be my top vote! First comes Jenner sisters. 23-year-old Kendall Jenner is the highest-paid model on Forbes 2018 …

In the Mood for a Muted Autumn Winter 高級感秋冬時尚攻略

Maybe my recent trip to North Europe is too fantastic that my soul refuses to come back, or maybe the sudden rise of Morandi colours through a popular Chinese TV drama “Palace of YanXi” is too influential. All of the sudden,  I am so in the mood for the muted colour palette in this autumn! …

Lessons I Get from Spring Summer 2019 Fashion Shows 2019春夏時尚週的小故事大啟示

Spring Summer 2019 Fashion Weeks end through the closure at Paris. Among all, Paris Fashion Week to me is the most attractive and dazzling- there are mega-presentations especially out of the power affirmation from two conglomerates Kering and LVMH (Dior vs. Gucci on the opening of Paris Fashion Week; Celine vs. Saint Laurent later in the week). On …

The Beauty of Imperfection 不完美之美

Ever since I started my own styling business, I’ve received this same advice from different people. 在我開始自己的造型事業之後, 無獨有偶的從幾個互不相識的朋友那裡得到這個建議. “Try not to look always perfect. Most women don’t like to be served by a Ms. perfect!” A very wise girl friend said to me. “試著不要讓自己時時看來完美, 女人不喜歡有個完美小姐隨侍在側!” 一個素來以有洞察力著稱的女朋友這麼吿訴我. “Your words may not be convincing enough to clients if …

Versatility 百變女王

When I was little, being a theater actress was one of my dreams. How fantastic it is to live with different faces in such a short life- I was totally fascinated by this idea. 小時候 成為劇場演員是我諸多個夢想之一,  光想到在沈悶的日常中, 隨時有機會體驗扮演不同性格和命運的人物, 就讓我覺得興奮不已. Of course, as the years go passing by, I didn’t have my actress dream come true. Despite of …

My Camino de Santiago 我的朝聖之路

Before the Departure 行前 “You’re too slow!” my husband waved his head with a desperate look while we did our weekly hiking training. “That’d be a miracle if you survive from this tour.” my friend said it with a mischievous blink. “你速度太慢了!” 在一次我們例行的爬山訓練結束前, 我先生搖搖頭, 用一種絕望的眼神看著我. “如果你能在這次的朝聖之行活下來, 那可真是奇蹟囉.” 我朋友用半開玩笑的口吻這麼調侃我. This tour is one-of-the-kind to me in …

Art Blossoms in Hong Kong 藝術點亮香港四月天

What would you do while lacking of inspiration? 當缺乏靈感時你會怎麼做? That becomes my common challenge after I start my blog. For many fashion designers, visiting art exhibitions, galleries, museums is a common way out. Without having time to do so for inspirations, as shared by the famous fashion commentator Suzy Menkes, Raf Simons chose to exit Dior to …
