CHIKA KISADA FW17 WOMEN’S WEAR

Chika Kisada 的設計有點Garcons 感。向橫發的大蓬鬆、紗裙、皺摺等。設計師以前是職業芭蕾舞蹈員。她也喜歡在設計中強調這個元素及打造一種強悍的優雅。純黑色的ruffles露肩毛衣便很有芭蕾舞感。很美麗的一個系列。

AKIKOAOKI FW17 WOMEN’S WEAR

在Central Saint Martins 畢業的Akiko Aoki被喻為日本最有潛力的設計師(可能是下一個Sacai哈哈)。今季她的系列啟發自各地的民俗服飾,並且希望回歸最原始的思考方式。雖然他說是啟發自民俗服飾,我卻感受到絲絲唐代的感覺。那些和Masaki Shimizu合作的耳環和頭飾都很有一種中國味。

GUCCI FW17 MEN’S WEAR

自從Alessandro Michele上場後,Gucci每季都不再是演繹一個故事咁簡單。而是呈現Gucci部落的民生情況。這是Gucci的施政報告現場直播。他們的居民可以來自世界各地,馬上分辨得出的有日本、中國人、英國和Gucci 原居民。這地充滿故事,可能包括男女平等。因為這裡各有一男一女拿著權仗。上至貴族下至傭人,應有盡有。這是Gucci的世界。其實上年踩踭褲曾經在天橋出現過幾次,我以為將會紅得發紫,但居然沒有。今季又再出現了,還有拿破侖的鞋子。Gucci星球施政報告完畢。

SACAI FW17 MEN’S WEAR

Sacai是其中一個我很喜歡的女裝品牌,當年他和Nike的合作,每一套我都很想買下來!今季他們的男裝,好像和Sacai不太相似,但又好像有點相熟。看看那些在手袖、頸圍和裝飾的Lace花邊,隱隱地散發出Sacai的味道。當然Sacai沒有那麼膚淺只有lace這麼小細節。我很喜歡一套白色印花長身西裝和西裝夾棉外套,再襯毛毛冷帽的一套。就像一朵在寒冷中茁莊盛放的花朵。

SACAI PRE-FALL 2017 WOMEN’S WEAR

Sacai無疑是我最愛的品牌了,每一季都在驚喜我,不停地把那份凋零美藏進時裝裡,每次看sacai的show時都會有一份靜的感覺,對,他的服裝並不說話,亦不活潑,但你總是能感受到他們在與你溝通,在跟你對視,令我著迷萬分,我最喜愛那件卡奇色的毛毛coat,那份靜謐之美令我愛不釋手!

SDK DANCE BATTLE 2017 HONG KONG PT.2

繼續第一部分的訪問 Interview continued from PT.1, July 14th, 2017 1:08PM>>

SPITGAN : 今次香港區既賽事你覺得香港既Dancer表現如何呢?
Travis Pang : 今次香港Final的香港Dancer表現都很好!其實香港有不少勁人隱藏系到。但我想建議香港的Dancer要多去Party!由其與世界各地不同地方的人jam下,我地叫Cipher,圍圈的練習,隨機出去跳舞!多去Party,比賽時就會更放!

S : 有無一隊香港的團隊你特別記得或者喜歡?
T : 有一隊有3個香港人,2個日本女仔的,都算香港隊吧哈哈!他們叫Ganbatte Ganbaru。因為他們的隊員的舞蹈種類很齊全,基本上我們有的style項目他們都有參加1 on 1 單人賽。他們的All Style是最齊整的,齊舞的部分也很深刻。雖然他們最後沒有勝出,但對我的印象卻很深。

S : 下一年再辦的時候你覺得有什麼要改善或者加大力度去做呢?
T : 第4屆最想改善就是場地控制、人流、入場管控,什至想再請更多有質素的嘉賓。其實每一年我們都有個目標比自己,不想翻炒評判!所以每年的評判都會是新鮮滾熱辣,年年不同!DJ方面我們都希望有更多新鮮感,可能換一換MC或者DJ!所以下一年最緊要個場地設定,遮陰遮太陽、避雨的地方都會加多點。什至我們希望舞台不止一個!讓Dancer上台比賽前可以有一個熱身的區域,當他們真正上台比賽時更加放膽更加投入!

SPITGAN : What did you feel about the Hong Kong dance performances in general?
Travis Pang : All Hong Kong dancers in the finals did a great job! I believe Hong Kong has many great dancers. Having said that, I do want to suggest to our Hong Kong dancers : join more parties, dance with people from everywhere! We call it a cipher (dancing in a circle), but go out dancing randomly! Play more, join more parties. It will help a dancer be more bold when they are in competitions and on stage!

S : Any Hong Kong team you really like or you feel has great potential?
T : I remember one team had three Hong Kong people and two Japanese girls. We can count it as Hong Kong team haha! They are called Ganbatte Ganbaru. They are still in my mind because their dance styles covered most of the categories of our games! I think they joined every dance style’s 1 on 1 battles. All their style performances were tight. Although they didn’t win, I still can remember them.

S : Anything you would like to improve or upgrade on the SDK ASIA 2018?
T : The fourth SDK, we will definitely want to improve the site control, and flow. Even invite more high quality guests. Every year we have a goal, we don’t want to having same judges. So you can see we having different judges everytime. The DJ too, we also want to have more of a novelty style, maybe we will change our MC and/or DJ. The most important part in the coming SDK must be the venue setting! We will add more places to cover people from the elements. Furthermore, we hope we can have another stage next time. It will help our dancers have a warm-up before they really go on stage and battle, this can help them more prepared and courageous!

SDK DANCE BATTLE 2017 HONG KONG PT.1

「跳舞先來落雨,吾通連個天都吾中意我?」NO!NEVER!誰說落雨就不能跳舞!早排有位跳舞的朋友告訴我香港SDK的賽事,說SDK是「街舞界的奧林匹亞」。講到咁爆,不可能不去了吧!早早就聯絡好主辦單位,滿懷期待的等待…點知!6月24號的全日賽事居然落大雨!當日賽事延至4點先開始,又濕、又熱、又曬,好難想像這種天氣還要我這種大懶人有任何活動!冷氣PLEASE!但是,SDK的場內卻沒有我這種垃圾人存在,攝影師後來告訴我,當時又再落雨,大會原本想暫停賽事,但台上比賽的人卻好像完全發現不到(或可能完全不介意!),繼續跳、繼續鬥,真心好有型好熱血好MAN阿!比賽之後我已經急不及待要去聯絡主辦方的Travis來個詳細訪問!

A dancer friend told me about the SDK Asia 2017 street dance competition, describing it as the Olympic Games of street dance! With such a glowing endorsement, I contacted the organizers immediately to ask for an interview and the low-down. Saturday, one of the main days of the competition was completely rained out by tropical downpour until 4PM. The venue was hot and muggy, I could barely stand to move let alone dance in this type of weather. It’s pretty disgusting. Where is my beloved AC?! The partipants of the SDK competition are clearly not lazy like me. Our photographer, Falcon, tells me that with the on and off rain, another suspension was looming but the contestants seemed oblivious to the bad weather or just really didn’t give a F…carry on! Guys, girls and even kids were going at it with gusto, and zeal! We finally caught up with the games organizer, Travis, after the event and were able to ask him a few questions.

SPITGAN : 今年是第3年舉行Street Dance Kemp亞太區預選賽,你有什麼特別的感受或心情嗎?
Travis Pang: 我想最大感受在於今次在户外舉行,有太多不能控制的因素。例如三日的賽事都有落雨,當有太陽、好天的時間我們都會超感恩!當下雨的時候當然也很燥底!BUT SHOW MUST GO ON!今次特別感受到團隊精神的重要,台前幕後都風雨不改地工作、比賽、跳舞!實在系喜出望外,就算落雨都很開心!

SPITGAN : This is the third edition of SDK (Street Dance Kemp) Hong Kong’s section, how do you feel about this year’s event?
Travis Pang : I have very strong memories about the outdoor venue this year. There were a lot of factors beyond my control. All three days of the games were rainy. When our team saw the sun coming out, we were so grateful! But when the rain cames again we were so frustrated…BUT SHOW MUST GO ON! I felt the importance of team spirit, and their positive attitudes. Everyone kept going and did a good job in their position. That was a very pleasant surprise to me. The weather was terrible but I still felt a great sense of joy and accomplishment.
