Summer have finally arrived. If you live in Hong Kong, many fashionistas will know that Hong Kong Summer can be very frustrating in terms of dressing up. Its very humid and you never know when there is a typhoon or when it will start to rain which makes it super hard to look good yet dress for the weather. Personally in summer I would like to stick to simple silhouettes in light fabric but play with bold prints and colours to make a statement. Shoes and socks are important for any fashion bro because it gives the perfect punctuation to any simple shirts and shorts combo.
My followers on Instagram would know that in the past year, I have developed an obcession with dancing so another brief for my OOTD is to wear sneakers on days which I don’t feel like carrying a pair of sneakers with my dance gear in my bag. Which is why our fairy god father Jeremy Scott have created the perfect answer to an outfit on a hot summer’s day with this outfit in collaboration with Adidas. Everyone who knows me will know that my all time favourite colour is Pink. I love it because I always believe that if a man can wear pink yet still look masculine, he is one of the most masculine guys in the world because he is comfortable enough with his sexuality to not be afraid to wear such a feminine colour.
The Chains and ribbon prints gives a nod to Versace in the 80s – very hard yet whimsical at the same time. The fabric is light and cool enough to dance in. I’ve paired the outfit with a pair of Adidas Wings Sneakers from the same collection which features pink roses. The outfit paired with a pair of pink checkered Happy Socks , Sunnies by Hong Kong Fashion Designer Kenax Leung and my Apple Watch makes it very sporty yet has a touch of androgyny. I feel like a male pink power ranger. Without further dodahs, here are the Photos.

Long time no update. Been so busy with the launch of BTW X KOITE – my debute accessories collaboration with Hong Kong accessories brand KOITE HANDMADE. stay tuned on a future blog post.
One of the greatest things about this industry is to meet fashion bloggers who share different styles and a love for fashion. Fashionistas United is something I am very passionate about which is why I’ve personally been wanting to do a group blog post for a long time. Vforvisala is my style sister who is often helps me take some of the best photos in this blog. I’ve always loved her eclectic and fun view of Fashion. Juuannie is a fashion blogger I met recently who loves black. I am always amazed with how she can always find different way to work with her dark slightly punk/gothic take on fashion. Together we really want to see how we can style jam together with this photoshoot wearing pieces of my accessories collection.
FORBIDDEN CHIC is an attitude. Every fashionista go thru a time in their lives where they want to grow up and look chic but fear that they may lose their own personal style. But as I get older I began to realize that what I love about fashion is the way we can use it to express ourselves. Black and white will always be fashionable and chic nomatter how old you are or what style you have. When we were young we fear that minimalism and simplicity will turn boring but in the past month I begin to think that minimalism is a way to appeciate detail – the cut of the shirt, feel the material of the cotton and to make the cute buttons of the shirt stand out. It is also a blank canvas of accessories . In a way its like a confident men or women whos comfortable with their own skin, and some time its a lipstick or a good haircut is all it takes to make them look the most beautiful just like a simple black and white outfit with the perfect accessory.

Every once in a while we see styling trends on the runway and ask ourselves how do we take pieces from that trend or show and do that look without buying the whole outfit? For me one of my favourite shows this season is Burberry Prorsum Fall/Winter 2014 . I love the use of scarfs on men , the juxtaposition of Masculine and Femininity and the fact that the collection feels very light and airy – a breath of fresh air from the heavy warm clothing we usually get for winter.
Being able to afford only 2 key items I’ve decided to use the styling of that collection to create my version of the look to a recent event. Starting with the mesh singlet (which is not easy to wear eating) , I’ve paired it with one of my favourite Modement trousers. The coat is actually a dress worn back to front cause I am in love with the hand panted stripe on the zipper. Since the eggplant coloured scarf is strong, I want to compliment it with Blue accessories. My favourite 112 mountainyam Space Tote and My new pointed toe Costume National Patent Leather Shoes completes the total look.
Without further doodahs, Here are the photos.

My first OOTD post.
For those who have read my previous post on Moschino Spring Summer 2015 collection featuring Barbie, I can’t help myself but grab my hands on 2 of the items to wear to a previous event.
Those who know me will notice that hot pink have always been my favourite colour (as seen on my blog layout, my logo and the fact that I wear it several times every month), the task for this look is to try to wear Barbie and Hot Pink but try to make such feminine colour and theme into a more masculine look. Decide to follow one of my fashion rules I learn’t in the past few years : if the theme and items feel too feminine, keep the styling simple and masculine- with slick back hair, a black shirt and simple black dress shoes.
Without further doodahs… here is the wonderful photos by my style sister : fashion blogger VforVisala.
