Trendspot: Icy Sugar

The pastel trend has been a big hit since Spring 2012, but what is coming this winter and possibly onto Spring next year is probably going to be an evolved version of yummy pastels, into icier tones, exemplified by ornate, jewel embellishments (be it on shirts and sweaters, or ballerina flats, or accessories). Pearls are also finding their way into earrings, necklaces and as clothing embellishments. Silver is also making a big comeback, having been dominated by gold in the jewellery/accessories department for the past few years. Metallics and holographic fabrics are also popular. Basically, it’s pairing sugary sweet stuff against an icy cool silver backdrop. Although this trend is not widespread in NYFW, there’s been some fun metallics in London FW for Fall 2013.

Even though personally I’ve always been a black/gold kind of girl, this type of styling excites me and makes me want to experiment. Fabio’s (from Project Runway season 10) final collection Cosmic Tribalism also alludes to this trend. Black leather skirts and shoes are also popular, contrasting with the pastel tones.

Hair colours that are currently popular include cotton candy pink, silvery blonde, and lilac tones. Some fashion/jewellery/hair inspirations below.

HELTER SKELTER

Outfit pics from Halloween. Was a girly devil for one night, and on another we were dressed to the theme of HELTER SKELTER, the recent Japanese movie. I think I looked more Christina Aguilera though with the blonde wig, lol. Photographed at the W Hotel, Hong Kong.

EQ:IQ & Steve Madden SS12 preview

This is way overdue but I figured better late than never. A while ago I was invited to the EQ:IQ and Steve Madden Spring/Summer 2012 Collection Preview at CENTRAL/CENTRAL. Aside from the usual bubbly and canapes, liked the painterly prints on the EQ:IQ dresses, and the colourful Madden shoes!

     

  My look – SLY chiffon shirt + black pants from ZARA

And here are some of the official EQ:IQ promotional images, some of the looks which I like, especially the shoes:

    

And here are photos from the Steve Madden preview…

       
Steve Madden goodies!

White is the new Black

I used to dress in head-to-toe black and feared wearing light colours especially white, just because black always seemed cooler (and skinnier!). However with summer hitting Hong Kong at about 1000degrees, lighter colours, particularly white (is white a colour?) beckoned to me. So bracing myself as I tried on a pair of light blue-grey jeans at ZARA, I was surprised that the reflection staring back at me did not scream Thunderous Thighs. In fact, I seem to look a tad more mature! As my mom put it, when you’re still young, you enjoy wearing dark colours and trying to look all cool and mature, but when you get older or you hit mid-life crisis, suddenly cotton candy pink and banana yellow don’t seem too kiddy; rather, they bring out the youthful girly side of you.

Oh, shoot.
