Hugo Is Bold

  We know Hugo Boss for its classical and elegant silhouettes that almost define the dress code for the modern working woman.  We appreciate the impeccable tailoring details, cut and structure of the pieces.  Now, be prepared for a refreshing makeover: this Fall-Winter 2017, HUGO introduces the confident and bold woman: one who wants to stay… Read More »

  The Freitag brothers are one of Switzerland’s most interesting startup and branding stories.  Their success started in 1993 when Markus and Daniel were graphic designers.  Looking for a practical, sturdy and good-looking bag, they were inspired by the multi-colored heavy trucks running by their apartment in downtown Zurich.  They recycled old tarpaulin truck covers… Read More »

  My mum often asks why I dress up “just to go downtown”,  especially in a pair of thick jeans in sweltering 30°C heat.  To me, my style of the day simply reflects the mood I am in, rather than its appropriateness.   I wonder how I would describe the mood that made me style my self-designed shirt… Read More »

Not Your Date Outfit

“Would it be OK if I wore that look on a date ?” I curiously asked my friend David.  He said “No” politely, explaining that my outfit was neither casual nor chic, neither stylish nor classic.  He was right – it wouldn’t make an impact.  For a change, this post is about what not to wear on a… Read More »

I just started reading this truly inspiring book).  I am lucky… Read More »

  I found another solution to actually feel and look good in the cold. It’s the Goldie London shearling jacket from ABOUT YOU online store. The piece is not only warm and comfy but also easy to style. For example, I went for a flower Pyjama top (yes, as a daywear) with no other layers.… Read More »

  Slippers in winter !?  I dare myself to wear my Zyne fringed slip-ons from Rush&Co online store but with 3 layers of tights.  I keep my look minimal with side-slit culotte pants, self-designed shirt, and leather jacket (over which I have a gilet not shown in the picture).  As usual, I give a twist to the outfit… Read More »

  I was so eager to wear this flashy pink Adidas bomber but just didn’t know how to style it.  But I know the piece would not work well other extravagant pieces.  So I simply put on a Lee tee, a pair of DIY H&M denim, Aldo boots and Diesel bag – all in black.  With this outfit,… Read More »

  Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself. – Oscar De La Renta Editorials or designers’ campaign aim to highlight the creativity of a new fashion, often by exaggerating some aspects of the design. They are not meant to be worn as shown or even to look beautiful,… Read More »
