New Year Eclectic

  New Year Eclectic   – An eclectic look to start the New Year, a dress that references 70’s flair and disco, 80’s shoulder pads and excess, a luxe faux-leather puffer and Balenciaga sock boots that seem to just work with everything and anything. Paired all that with my hands-free approach to an evening bag…my […]

High Shine   – Fun fact…I happen to love sequins! With holiday season upon us, I always add a few high-shine, liquid-like, sequin pieces to my wardrobe this time of year.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I’ve never met a Magali Pascal dress I didn’t love. In this case, think feminine, romantic and […]

Guccified

Guccified   – Did someone say Gucci ? Not to be missed bold logo’s and double G’s are a far departure from my usual low-key approach to dressing, but in this case, a double dose of Gucci is off-set with classic black suiting & simple white sneakers for some much needed balance. A perfect Monday-back-at-it […]

Piuarch transforms abandoned aircraft factory into Gucci’s Milan headquarters

Italian office Piuarch has converted a former aircraft manufacturing facility in Milan into fashion brand Gucci’s new headquarters, adding a glazed tower wrapped in metal sunscreens to the rows of the brick-clad hangars. The complex of warehouse buildings close to the city’s Linate airport was originally completed in 1915 to house the final assembly plant

Beyond Basics

Beyond Basics   – Covering all the basic bases…leather jacket, worn-in jeans, black boots & button down shirting…while these are all considered basic in theory, in this case, they go beyond the basics and work overtime as stand-out, hero pieces. Each with impeccable attention to detail, from statement sleeves to strategically distressed denim. Simply said, basics made better. […]

Luxe Black Layers

Luxe Black Layers   – Labels like Gucci and Balenciaga make up some of my investment wardrobe pieces, but when spending more than usual, I never shop trend and stick to classics. Think black ankle boots and chain crossbags, a simple oversized knit and distressed denim… key items with longevity that are basic (…but not boring) On the flip side, […]

La Collection

La Collection   From my friends at Damoy Antwerp, comes a new label that conveys all things French, all things chic and all things luxe. Appropriately named La Collection, the name says it all…you’ll find a curated collection of pieces with silhouettes rooted in classics, but updated details, luxe fabrications and edge, give the line an elevated […]

Gucci: The Snake Charmer

  A gigantic fuchsia flourish of bougainvillea sits on the corner of the street that I live in, adjoining one of the busiest roads that you can imagine.  Housing sprawls out in both directions and is surrounded by the usual suburban Australia backdrop of traffic lights, local corner stores and front yards strewn with caravans, tinnies and old […]

Monochrome Casual

Monochrome Casual   My current go-to knit, oversized is a slight understatement…I’m wearing the XS/S here and it still has room to spare. A lot of items claim “oversized” status but this one delivers! Paired with statement crop denim in winter white & black accessories, all in all, a perfect off-duty, default look that epitomizes […]

Gucci Brixton Loafers

Hands down the most comfy shoes I own…even compared to sneakers ! I have both the Gucci Brixton and Jordaan loafers, glancing at them, they look the same, main difference is the Brixton folds down in the back to double as a slip on. Either pair, you can’t go wrong, classic & comfy is a win win… […]

How to wear lingerie like a tomboy

How to wear lingerie like a tomboy Editorial featuring: ‘So Sweet’ lace bra & ‘Be Mine’ bodysuit, both by Gooseberry Intimates Everything about Italy makes you feel so much more a woman than anywhere else in the world. To one so determined to be a tomboy, as yours truly, however, it is a culture shock to say the least. Handsome Italian men in impeccable suits turn and stare deeply at you, and the more forward of them call after you, ‘Bella!’, often accompanied with a, ‘Where’re you from?’, in heavy Italian accents. As for those male friends more familiarly acquainted, they would have you believe that their whole purpose in life is to pull out your chair, open the door and pick up the check. A claim that ‘I could not sleep if I left a woman pay’ is one I have heard more than once. Yes, being treated as a delicate flower makes you feel so much a woman, or, I should add, like a woman should be. If you sense the sarcasm between the lines here, then it should not surprise you that, in many a conversation over a Campari gone south, I have been accused of being […]

The art of shopping and other silk truths

The Art of Shopping and Other Silk Truths Wearing: Silk Classic Shirt, Silk Culottes & Silk V-Neck Slip Dress, all by Grana (use my code “JIAWAxGRANA” for 10% off, plus free shipping world wide) Like many childhood lessons I now wish I had not half ignored, tiresome market days with a gaggle of my Chinese aunties now seem to me as some heroinic training in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon vein. By this, the art of shopping passed from master to pupil: the rules of engagement between vendor and haggler; a nose for retail gems in a clutter of street hawkers. For example, that the true price is always at least half of the quote, that packaging does not always reflect quality (and vice versa), and that one should always inspect the whole market before buying. Silk, which originated in ancient China, will always to the Chinese be the stuff of royalty. It is no wonder the women of my family are versed in every skill of rooting out the lesser imitations. Regarding any clothing tag with utter suspicion, garments must first satisfy the thumb-and-forefinger rub. Then, it is inspected at within millimeters of a bespectacled nose, where, reputedly, gleams the […]

Modern Muse in Hong Kong

Modern Muse in Hong Kong Travel Editorial featuring Estée Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Gloss Eau de Parfum It’s one of those truisms so easy to assimilate into one’s reality – like the fact that egg tarts hold the joy of life, or that vacay brain thrives on longer purse strings – that certain stimuli of the senses have mystical powers over the human mind. For example, that colours can influence mood and perception, and scents can evoke powerful feelings. Here in Hong Kong, whether such postulations are based in science is largely irrelevant. Notwithstanding its vertical concrete habitats, neon sign forests, and other such demonstrations of its ultra-modernity, the tradition (or perhaps, superstition) of the colour red is faithfully observed. It is used to signify luck and prosperity in life, power and rightfulness in politics, and sexual desire in love.  But for the Chinese, rather than being a show of prevailing confidence, it is a gesture in invitation of the same, or, even, in expectation. One needs only to observe the concrete and glass facades of Hong Kong’s islands, greeting each other each night across the harbour with an extravagant light show, aflood in the colour red. Amongst that […]

Tan + Tweed

Tan + Tweed   Cheating a little on black lately with an array of Fall hues. The usual suspects of colors like tan, olive, camel and army green have been on regular rotation for me this season. I’ve added a handful of these muted, toned-down colors in easy to wear pieces like dresses and coats […]

The Unexpected Tunic

The Unexpected Tunic   A rather unexpected choice for me…this tunic is shorter than I usually opt for and much more girly, yet at its root, I feel it’s 100% me! Bell sleeves and embroidery give it just enough interest and edge and the unseasonably warm New York Fall weather makes it a perfect time to […]

Modern Vintage

Modern Vintage   When I think Vintage, I think luxe, I think Parisian chic. I think of feminine styling while still borrowing from the boys, details like lace and covered buttons, structured shoulders along-side free-flowing romantic pieces. Effortless & subtle styling of classics mixed with fashion forward finds all while not over-doing it, that is the epitome […]

Layered Silks

Layered Silks   Sometime simple is best, as in this case wearing layered silks and all black everything. I opted for accessories with a bit more edge and hardware since I kept things minimal otherwise. Easy does it for a look that you literally slip on and go.

Gucci Jordaan Metallic Loafer

Newest shiny addition…while these new flats are a bit flashier than what I might typically wear, I love the mixed metal element of combining silver and gold, something I do a lot day to day with jewelry and accessories. They are also an ultra iconic silhouette so even though they might have more flair they are still […]

Balenciaga

This is what you get when you combine too much excitement with a lashing of mid-week creativity.  The Balenciaga bug bit me a long time ago but with the addition of ex-Vetements’ Demna Gvasalia to the stable, what was once a bite is now a full blown epidemic. Balenciaga’s PreFall 2016 collection had my entire office […]
