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.

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…

Holographic Fashion

It’s been so long since I last blogged here! But my love for fashion hasn’t waned, that’s for sure!
For this post I’d like to share with you guys how holograms have changed the world of fashion.

This amazing footage from the Burberry FW2011 show in Beijing completely blew my mind away! Of course, other brands including McQueen and Diesel have also been known to include holographic effects in their runway shows before, but Burberry’s presentation was just refreshing and captivating.

And of course, if you haven’t already heard about the amazing Vocaloid technology in Japan, you better do a google search for it! Recently a Vocaloid “live” concert was held, by holographic characters! Check out my fav character Miku and all-time-fav song The World Is Mine, sung LIVE!!!!

Do you have any technologically fashionable things to share?
