    Remember we had an acoustic music video shoot earlier in August? We actually did a quick photo shoot as well on that day. While we are still working on the music video, we want to share the editorial with you first.

    "Last Days of Summer" captures the mood of a girl who is embracing the last heat wave while reluctantly accepting the inevitable fact that autumn is slowly approaching.

    I’ve just realised that it has been two years since we did the first fashion editorial for my blog! Having been busy working on other video projects, I actually really miss doing editorial photos. I promise I will do more, please stay tuned for the next one.

    BLITZ, a concept within the Lane Crawford footwear and accessories, has recently launched a new project called “Krafted I” - featuring handcrafted products by artisans from around the world.

    Being an accessories designer and leather crafter myself (you can see my products here), I was so excited to be invited to the preview of this collection.

    It was really nice to be able to see the products up close, to feel the materials and to look at the craftsmanship that went into the making of these products. I appreciated how each of these products are made of high quality materials with intricate techniques.

    Thanks Tiffany for showing me around. I’m happy that BLITZ Lane Crawford has taken this approach to shine a light on quality handmade design. Looking forward to see the next collection.

    If you have been following my Instagram, you probably know how much I like to wear white. In fact, I have been wearing lots of white this summer. (You can see my previous white outfit here)

    This time I decided to wear white head to toe. I matched the same white cropped top that I altered myself (tips here) with a white eyelet skirt to add on some texture, giving the whole outfit a bit more extra than just a plain color.

    Eyelet pieces have been around for a while now and it has become more popular again. I love how breezy it makes you feel when you are walking in it, so perfect for the humid and hot Hong Kong summer days.

    ba&sh, the contemporary French label who is known for its everyday essentials as affordable luxury, has recently opened its flag-ship store in Hong Kong.

    Knowing this brand for years, I was really excited to be invited to its 2014 Fall/Winter Collection Preview on Monday.

    The collection is full of minimal pieces with intricate details, every piece is made of high quality soft fabrics, with animal prints as the highlight of the whole collection.

    What I like about the collection is that many of the pieces are multifunctional, giving you more style options or simply transform your look from day to night.

    Thanks Pam and Karen for the tour, it was really fun to check out the collection and try on the pieces. Keep an eye out for the new collection as more new items will arrive in store soon!

    Technicolor Dream Coats”by Driu & Tiago for WSJ Magazine September 2014

    I know it’s only August and still over 30 degrees outside, but I can’t help checking out what’s in for this fall and winter already.

    Coats are always the first items I check for fall/winter, after all, everyone needs one in the cold days. I love how this editorial is showcasing different styles of coats in a color coordinated way. From structural to slouchy, each coat is displayed through model with a simple pose, yet pairing with minimal styling and settings, the whole editorial simply looks chic and stylish.
