My Very Own Vestiaire

I don’t know how many of you spend as much time as me online looking for a designer item that is sold out, from seasons ago, from a limited collection or just looking for a more affordable price but for me, it takes up half my life. Sure, it’s also my job, but I can’t tell you how many hours I lose everyday before eventually finding everything (and I mean EVERY SINGLE THING) on Vestiaire Collective. Case in point, these Vetements cowboy boots for which I scavenged the entire internet for months before finally scoring them on Vestiaire Collective, receiving them within days in its original box and not even a single scratch on it. For those of you who don’t know, Vestiaire Collective is (the world’s best!) marketplace for pre-loved luxury and designer fashion where you can shop the pieces directly from the closets of the world’s most stylish women. Most of the sellers are from Europe which makes the website even more unique and remarkably more fashionable compared to other marketplaces. Every item …

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 Pyjama Traveler in Milan

The Pyjama Traveler in Milan Though to step out in one’s pyjamas is very un-Italian indeed. This editorial features: Silk Pyjama Shirt and Pant by Grana (use my code “JIAWAxGRANA” for 10% off, plus free shipping world wide) For a good many reasons, I always pack a pair (or two) of luxe silk pyjamas when I travel. On the one hand, it is for the simple practicality of sleeping with the softness of silk against the skin, and, on another – more supercilious – hand, to throw on for an impromptu photo-op in a luxurious interior, where a certain state of undress is warranted. Then, of course, there is the morning after the night before, where, in that very Italian way, the deliciously lengthy process of aperitif, dinner, and then drinks after (occasionally with a party in between) had progressed into the small hours, and one simply does not want to get dressed at all. However, the rub of it all is that, despite such elaborate evening activities, to step out in one’s pyjamas the next day, is very un-Italian indeed. The Milanese woman is closer to the patriarchal old world than many of their more progressive European counterparts (demonstrated also in […]

Vetements for Style.com

There’s no denying neither Vetements’s success nor the incapability of understanding Vetements’s success but one thing’s clear: everyone wants a piece (or at least wants the style; the rise of Levi’s 501s, spike heel boots, huge shoulders, extra long sleeves, sweatshirts are all thanks to Demna Gvasalia). But there was one collection even the most devoted fans didn’t know about, the fall 2014 collection Gvasalia had to show in his Paris apartment where everyone involved got paid in clothes (I call that a good investment) and now the designer is re-imagining the first ever Vetements collection for the relaunch of Style.com.

Trend: Florals

Blame it on Demna Gvasalia or the influence of the Gucci Effect, but adding floral to my wardrobe is currently at the top of my to-do list. A street style staple, the Vetements floral dress redefined the new floral, however it was Gvasalia’s designs featured in his first collection in creative control of Balenciaga that really […]
