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.

Meeting Momoko (but missed VB!)

My #1 fashion icon from Japan is none other than Momoko Ogihara, producer of the brand MURUA. Since I stalked her blog regularly, I found out to my utmost delight that she was making a stop at Hong Kong to promote her label through an instore fashion event! I immediately RSVPed to secure a “styling session” with her too. Here are some photos of the gorgeous, model thin Momoko. She is really pleasant in person but also very professional when it came to styling her clients for that day – like yours truly! She was efficient, had a sharp eye for what looked good and what coordinated well, and she had to dress many many girls! Here are some photos from the event on 11 May, at THE ONE, TST.

It was a total dream come true being able to talk to my idol upclose and personal and even getting styled by her!

Unfortunately I was not free to see Victoria Beckham at her Lane Crawford event recently. She still looks very polished and beautiful and well put-together from the link below! Don’t get the hate though – I think she’s Posh for a good reason! And she’s not being a sullen, cold, robot… She’s just cool and collected and doesn’t smile that much naturally! She has always been my favourite Spice and I think she’s extremely eloquent and polite in interviews. Love her style and make up too – calling her skeletal or anorexic is just silly, there are way too many people thinner than she is.
