Chanel SS 2015 : Back off Gentlemen, Here comes the Ladies

Finally, I got to sit down and watch the fashion runways. Yes, I know I am too damn slow. Forgive me for I have sins. Chanel’s Runway impressed me the most though I wish the clothes could have been better but I do enjoy the concept behind the collection. Apparently from what I have read,  Karl Lagerfield was trying to recreate an history moment MAY 1968. The 1968 crisis has changed the lives of women. They have become more free and respected. They discover that they have the right to speak out. You can see through the clothes that it has the touch of the vibe in the 60s, from the retro to the hippy. The transition was done nicely. I do enjoy how he played with the materials and the shoes are a killer. I always want a Chanel Shoe. It looks damn good!

Enjoy the video guys!

A Sin.

Hello guys ( if there is anyone out there reading my blog )! I was so busy with my life! I am working as an intern in a local brand in Singapore and I was doing my own thing that I totally forgotten about my space here! I hope everyone is doing fine! It has been away since I get to see what is the latest fashion runway! My bet! My sin for not blogging often. It is quite tough to always blog ain’t it? I wonder how those girls can do it. I applauded them!

I have been making tote bags and I enjoy doing it. It is like a hobby of mine I guess I haven’t master making clothes yet. I think I shall start soon shouldn’t I? I should stop lazing around and start practicing paper pattern and drafting. These are a few bags I made :

I wonder if it is good enough.

Bear with the pain.

I need a space to talk about my feeling so pardon me as it has nothing related to fashion. Sometimes you ask yourself how good are you and you realized that you are the worst of the worst. Well, that is me right that. A lost hopeless sheep that can’t seem to succeed in anything.

My relationship is on the edge of the rock. I have no idea what I want from my boyfriend or even from me. Why am I so lost? Why do I have to demand so much from him? Why can’t I be satisfied? I keep asking myself why. I can’t help but cry. The feeling of my heart breaking; it sucks. Why do love have to be complex? I wish I can stop this pain.

Sorry for the lack of posting! I have been busy with school work; though half of the time I am not listening in class ( long story ) Anyways, if you didn’t follow my instagram, I knitted a scarf with knit and purl stitches and end the ends with fringes. It took me about a month plus as I didn’t commit to it everyday and as I started out, it was tough for me. I was having a hard time to get the tension right. 

The scarf isn’t perfect but I am happy with the result! I am starting on another knitting project! Hope I can get it right! I promise I will try to post regularly! 

 

Dsquared² Spring 2015 Menswear : Pop the colour baby.

Firstly, I apologize for the lack of posts as I am currently studying fashion design in Ta.ftc, located in Singapore. It is the cheapest and shortest course I could get in and I am squeezing in tons of knowledge into my mini brain. It is really tough but it is all worth the while. Cut to the chase and talk about the Spring 2015 Menswear collection. I have been looking at quite a few collection and I particularly like Dsquared² due to the vibrant funky colour tone they put up and also, the sleek and casual style.

Dean and Dan Caten named this collection Stud2io. It was their interpretation  of Andy Warhol’s factory. The colour tone resembles the pop art of Warhol’s painting. Warhol was the king of pop. He lit up an image with vibrant colours. I love the concept of it. It is Spring for godsake, lit up your Spring with colours.

I am in love with their camou coats. I love coats. I love seeing men in coats. The Catens went wild and went all out with a pink speedo coming from the runway. They have dedicated their love towards the beauty of a male body. Kudos to their beautiful runway show.

Trace back down the memory lane

I am sorry for the lacking of blogging. I have been pretty busy with my part-time retail job. Recently, I went to Hong Kong. It was great but it is definitely an expensive country.

There is a particular place that I love in Hong Kong is Yu Chau Street, The Fabric World. It was my first time going to another country, entering their fabric world. Yu Chau Street was a paradise for me. You can find different fabrics there. There are studs, genuine leather shops, beads, ribbon etc. Most shop provides fabric cards for you order but the minimum quantity is 5 yards which is quite massive. The order takes about 2 working days as it is transported from China. If you want to have reasonable price fabric, you can head down to those shops and slowly find the right one for you! I didn’t have alot of time to shop there as I was with my friends and they are hardly any fans of fabric. But I was glad to be able to purchase about 5 types of fabric. One day, I will return to Hong Kong  but only for the fabrics.

And if you are big fan of sneakers or skaters shoes, you can head down to their sneaker streets. All the shoe shops sell roughly the same designs and the prices are about the same. But compared to Singapore’s pricing, the shoes there are definitely cheaper. I got my converse for 44 SGD which was a good buy. In all, Hong Kong treated me well.

HOWEVER, time to get back into reality.

Well, I am pretty much jobless right now, waiting for my diploma certificate while I work part-time in retail sales. I am lost and confused which I don’t know if it is okay. I am bombarded with so many questions about my future. But the future that I truly wanted is to do fashion design.

Why I love designing? I love to go through research, to brainstorm on fashion stuff in terms of the cuts, details etc. The part when you can do design for people and when people appreciate your design, it is a great feeling. You spend hours and days doing one design but it is the thought process, the concept behind every design makes it one of a kind. As a designer, you design for the people but yet, there is a part of you in the work. It is an identity of your work which people can identify you.

After 3 years of experiencing design, I love the whole journey. When I first started in the Experience and Product Design in Singapore Polytechnic, I dislike it. It was a torturous journey. I always had my downs. It was bad but it keeps me thinking; trying to solve problems for people. It just make me feel good and make me stay up at night to work hard to complete the task. It just keep me going.

On Monday, I will be heading into my dream, turning my dream into reality. I can’t wait to start this journey. Anyone that is reading this will accompany me to work towards my dream.

Till then.

 

Loafers Craze

Recently, I am crazy about loafers. I do fancy loafers from start but recently, it is an addiction to loafers. Everywhere I shop, I look for loafers. I just want a pair of loafers. Okay, maybe not just one but two or three or even ten. How can anyone say no to loafers? It looks comfortable, fashionable and chic. It is a pair of shoe that can glam an day look. I am in love with Celine’s Loafers! It is to die for.

I am a big fan of Celine’s Loafers as it has this masculine touch to it but yet, it is feminine and chic. The loafers can just fit my everyday wear. I can totally pair up with boyfriend’s jeans and white tee with Celine’s Loafers and I will look chic. The loafers are amazing. Everyone should have a pair of Celine’s loafers. People, it is a Need.

Who doesn’t love a good print? Liberty of London has collaborated with the likes of Target, J.Crew, and Nike resulting in unique twists on basic silhouettes. I love Liberty prints and this latest collaboration is no exception. Curated by Jonny Johansson, this latest collaboration features classic Liberty prints on Acne Studios pieces, like their classic motorcycle jacket. Not for the price sensitive, these will likely not be making their way into my closet, but I love admiring them from a distance.

What do you guys think?
