Now 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.
While this, and this, might indicate that i am a member of black glorifying troop (with Emmanuelle Alt, Victoria Beckham and Sara Donaldson as possible comrades), i have far less experience in wearing black from top to toe compared to my experience in cramming as many words as possible in one single sentence.

I 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!
- Nike Air Max in liquid silver is the closest i have ever got to love at first sight,
- 3.1 Philip Lim‘s bags are what i envisioned my ideal-self would carry from time to time,
- Stella McCartney‘s Jacquard Python dress taught me all i need to know about being detail-oriented,
- and yes, i would love to have Acne studio’s Rita leather jacket in every colors the brand would offer, s’il vous plait.
- 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.
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?

A jewelry brand i give my full support on by showing responsibility towards environment and community.
“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.
