AREA FW17 WOMEN’S WEAR

Took the name Area quite literally here. Was interested in the area’s where the garments would or wouldn’t show the body beneath. It’s a bit difficult to see the individual pieces from the runway shots, some might be more imagined than real, like the last look which isn’t all that avant garde, but in a distressed denim, pretty fresh. Also, the one legged pant suit, and panelled skirts somehow work to my tastes where others have failed.

時裝片/FASHION FILM : BALENCIAGA FW17 AD CAMPAIGN

小時候最愛玩那些大型商業大廈或酒店的轉轉門。我也不知道為什麼,感覺好簡約、好美麗。一個旋轉便分隔開兩個地方(夏天的話我會說是兩個世界),一人一格,好有規律。大家互相認識,卻要互相依賴,要是你站着不動,後面的人也不能離開。門轉緣起,門停便滅。

KNITWEAR SYMPHONY 2017 PART 2

繼續第一部份

驟眼一看,沒有幾個屬於我喜歡的系列。大多數系列都與我的個人品味互相衝突,但今季正正是關於衝突的、你以為是廢物的。系列被有意地組裝成看起來很爛的感覺,那些似妓女的長靴和褻瀆的口號,破洞穿孔的服裝和態度。這就是一種我喜歡的對抗!閉幕時一間有份贊助的「長衫」公司吸引了我的眼球。他們利用了傳統的中國服裝,透過針織面料和剪裁,為舊衣服給予了新的生命。再次為所有設計師致敬及祝成功。香港有希望啦!

Continued from PT. 1

At first glance, it was hard to find collections I liked. Most collections seemed to clash with my personal taste, but this season it was all about the clash, and trash for that matter. Collections were purposefully assembled to look shoddy, there were hooker boots and profanity slogans, piercings and attitude to the clothing this season. It was a confrontation, and I liked it! The cheung sam company that sponsored and closed the show also caught my eye as they took the very traditional Chinese dress and gave it new life with knit fabrics and cut variations. Salute again and continued success designers! There is hope in HK!

KA WA KEY FW17 AD CAMPAIGN

Ka Wa Key一向給我的感覺,就是因為無拘無束的人。他的世界很大、天空很藍。他的設計很多是在原有的布料上發揮,例如扎染、腐蝕等等。今季我特別喜歡他們的Ad Campaign,幾個人互相糾纏、互相支撐,又好像互相侵蝕、互相傷害。極大的留白空間讓我們自行發揮想像。

AQUILANO RIMONDI FW17 WOMEN’S WEAR

The design duo of Aquilano Rimondi kickin some ol’ 80’s power woman dressing for FW17. Like the sharp and structured silhouettes that are tried and true. Diggin how even the blazer jackets are cut high waist to create a sharp, elongated form. Wondering if the boots coulda been updated. Seems to date the collection a bit for me.

KNITWEAR SYMPHONY 2017 PART 1

對我來說,這個Knitwear Show可能是香港貿發局主辦的Centrestage中一顆秘密的寶石吧。由HKKIDS(毛織創新及設計協會)主辦的Knitwear Symphony 最近幾屆都在香港發掘了不少有趣的人才。今季他們繼續在這個強壯蓬勃的基礎上再進一步。但似乎今次是個較小型的表演?或者可能是因為後台比以前少了近一半吧!當我們繼續深入這個屬於本地設計的秘境,幾個系列倒是有些面熟,但依然存在不少驚喜。—第二部分繼續。

To me the secret gem of HKTDC CENTERSTAGE or it’s incarnation before, is the Knitwear show. Hosted by HKKIDS (Hong Kong Knitwear Innovation and Design Society), the last few editions have produced the most interesting talent in the Fragrant Harbour. This season also continued to build on this burgeoning tradition with another strong showing. It seemed to be a smaller show? Or perhaps the backstage was half it’s previous size giving off this impression? As we have reached deeper into the local design scene, a few collections we had seen before resurface here but there were still many surprises left! PT 2 to follow…

APIECE APART FW17 WOMEN’S WEAR

Diggin these 2 wearable denim pieces from Apiece Apart FW17. Doubt that the ruffle one piece needs to be worn so low to be effective.
