More Is More

I love this down time after shows when I can relax and have time for myself. Might sound crazy, but even after walking shows, I love watching them online, getting inspired and collecting outfit ideas. Here’s my favorite looks that I can’t wait to adopt and wear in one way or another. That wardrobe will definitely get some great energy!

More is more

Even though I like color, I mostly wear tonal outfits and don’t go wild on print. However, I’ve always admired that girl who does, especially the one who wears print top to toe, mixes different fabrics and patterns. This season I’ll really try to mix all the “unmixables”, get complete stranger items and fit them in.

Something shiny

I love the saying “dress not where you are, but where you want to be”. And not only career wise. Like great spaces or music, happy outfits put me in a happy place. Once I have that fabulous outfit, occasions to wear it just come!

Uniform

I believe in good suit. I think it’s even more glamorous than a dress for a women and always reminds me of old movies. I also believe that matching pattern done well can’t ruin the elegance. It’s so sophisticated and so fun at the same time.

Sporty glamour

I actually just bought my first sunglasses for running. And I would never want to be seen wearing them in public. But not until this season. I believe my new ugly sunglasses will be the main accent for a serious outfit. Same with a cap. Backwards

My Inspiration Girl

My favorite looks from the shows. Don’t know why, but even in fall winter season I’m drawn to light and color palette. Yes, black is very refined and so easy, it is hard to get it wrong. But there’s something so attractive about taking risks and not being afraid to get it wrong.

I have a great friend Lingzi Zhang, who never owned a basic t-shirt. She said ‘What’s the point, if you can get it from any of your boyfriends’. She came to visit me in Milan once and we went to Sonar in Barcelona together. She showed up in yellow jumpsuit and heels straight from the airport. All the stuff in her suitcase was either color or print. We lived in Hong Kong together, went out every night and loved dressing up. But not like me, she never though too much about creating an outfit and didn’t take long to leave home. She doesn’t care what others think of her, but yet I think she’s the most stylish girl I know. I always picture her before buying those crazy ‘very unsafe’ shoes.

Miss you, Lingzi and can’t wait for you to visit me in New York! xx
