Pick a Wang

alexanderwangxhm-runway--46-vogue-17oct14-pr_bNow that November 6 is approaching, i can already hear fashion enthusiasts all over the world chanting “AW x HM”* in unison. Yeah, that actually happens, or maybe it’s just me spending too much time stalking #AlexanderWangxHM on every social media platforms, until my consciousness gets all blurred out.

How to : Black on black summer

How to : Black on black summer
Despite of the fact that i am tropical born and bred, let’s just pretend that i could distinguish summer to any other seasons and dress differently during that time. The fact is, i don’t.But say i could get into the minds of the fellow sub-tropical people, and know what people would want to wear on brighter days. My best bet would be comfortable lightweight clothes, and sandals. Although i’d suggest them to ditch all the summer cliches, and opt for the all-black look instead. I’d also add some on point accessories like watches and sunglasses in the shade of white, as non-verbal cues for “no Ma’am/Sir, i’m not going to a funeral”. Also, one does not simply walk out the door without a structured, practical sling black to carry all their summer necessities. Aaaand, DONE

The Ultimate Collaboration

ALexander wang x HMI mark the time when two of (then) the most influential musicians in my life, Westlife and Sherina teamed up to sing ‘i have a dream’ in 2001 as the highlight of my childhood. Fast forward 13 years later, the feeling can only be compared by putting the only two brand and designer i’ve dedicated a post specifically about in a collaboration.

Alexander Wang x H&M, is Westlife ft. Sherina hysteria all over again!

Ultimate Wishlist

Ultimate Wishlist
  1. Nike Air Max in liquid silver is the closest i have ever got to love at first sight,
  2. 3.1 Philip Lim‘s bags are what i envisioned my ideal-self would carry from time to time,
  3. Stella McCartney‘s Jacquard Python dress taught me all i need to know about being detail-oriented,
  4. and yes,  i would love to have Acne studio’s Rita leather jacket in every colors the brand would offer, s’il vous plait.
  5. Lastly, i made an agreement with Alexander Wang that my first designer items i will ever purchase is one of his. Of course Mr.Wang himself doesn’t know that such an agreement exist, but that’s not a reason to violate it.

    Such are my tendency to romanticize pieces of clothing, but until the glorious day i’m able to call those babies mine… a collage must suffice.

“Live Your Legacy”

all products

Who doesn’t have a fair share of  cheap metals and DIY jewelry? But let’s be fair, those things rarely lasts and would lost its appeal through times. Lightning-bolt-shaped pendants, and spiked bracelets might be edgy, for now. Of course if we’re lucky, the trend will reoccur but chances are huge for our grandchildren to put them under “100 silly trends of 2010s”.

In all exact contrast, a delicate princess cut diamond necklace might not be the talk of the town, but it sure will gracefully pass the test through times. Both physically, and aesthetically. The selection above are of beauties you can pass on for generations. They will conserve your stories and your memories just as long as they gilsten.

They do not cost you the earth either.

Because otherwise, what’s the point?

Sentiments

6

“Umm…, that’s very nice Mom, but, you know… I don’t actually wear  jewelry”, was my first thought, when I received a dainty white gold bracelet –completed with tiny heart shaped pendants which induces me to purse my lips a la Miranda Priestly— as my 18th birthday present. Despite of passive-aggressively declaring “Mom, I would rather get myself another shoes than a fine jewelry”, i wore that bracelet anyway. And later, I have to admit that my mother indeed, knows best.
