It’s so refreshing to see a TV-series with real, (un?)cool girls.  “Girls” is a comedy about 20-something girls in New York, living the dream one mistake at a time. Aka not airbrushed like “Sex and the City”. Hilarious! About weird relationships, unpaid internships (we have all been there!), guys that aren’t good for you and … Continue reading

What mood are you in?

I love looking at designer’s mood boards, seeing how they got from one idea to the other. It really gives you interesting insight into the design process and their vision. When I was studying fashion, making mood boards was a big part of it. I remember the science dudes who studied at the same campus … Continue reading

Hong Kong – Asia’s new art capital?

But no worries, Art HK is coming up in May, the world’s biggest art fair, and I will be covering it … Continue reading

“Blunderbuss” is out!

My friend who was there last week also confirmed this. What I like is that people don’t follow all the rules. What you would see at … Continue reading

I’m saving the interview & photos with him for an article, but also did some shots of the stylish people there, which I’m sharing with you! Brogues & paisley is obviously the deal right … Continue reading

There’s so much crap in the world right now that I just need to put on some good music. Luckily for you, I’ve compiled a few cool (& random, just what I felt like) tracks here. Hope your Monday is better than mine! LITLLE BOOTS – EVERY NIGHT I SAY A PRAYER (TENSNAKE REMIX) … Continue reading

The lack of posts is due to Easter and wonderful weather the past two days. But tonight streetstyle photographer Tommy Ton is visiting Hong Kong, to show off his new line of bags for Club Monaco. I’ll be there to check it out, so will get back to you on that. In the meantime, a … Continue reading
