Life is full of surprises, especially in the fashion world. Seriously, who would have thought that sneakers would appear in a haute couture show and blow everyone’s mind?
On a personal level, I’m surprised that I could fall so deeply in love with a pair of sneakers. Considering how Minna Parikka has injected just the right dose of girlishness and whimsy to the design without losing the simplicity, however, it is in fact not too surprising.
Regardless of being an avid advocate for color therapy, recently I’m rather drawn to the charm and cooling effect (at least visually) of white, a color that is arguably, not a color.
I don’t like to talk about the weather too often, as much as I don’t like to start a sentence with “I”, but let me do it one last time before, say, October: it’s so unforgivably and suffocatingly hot here these days! I wanna do nothing else except lying on the couch with a big bucket of pistachio ice-cream, looping the lazy song…. except I can’t.
This post features two very different outfits but they have one thing in common: the key pieces are all designed by HK talents and they are even made in HK!
Suu Ho, the founder of 1.618 Couture & Bridal who worked for Julien McDonald & Preen, is the mind behind this dreamy, princessy cascading dress. It’s an absolute stunner and had extinguished my vulgarity temporarily.
As to the meaning of 1.618, it is the golden ratio, the divine proportion that is closest to perfection.
It can be warm
It can be cool

The different hues of blue!

It is raining so heavily outside that the red rainstorm signal has just been hoisted, which makes looking back at these floral themed outfits with glitzy sparkly Swarovski jewelries particularly refreshing!
