Dude & the Duchess SS15 – défilé II

For Spring/Summer 2015, Creative Director Jonathan Liang merges sportswear chic with the fantastical inspirations of fairies, drawn from folklore of the “Fairy Ring” (circles of mushrooms created by fairies dancing in and out of this realm) and Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Bringing foreword Dude & the Duchess’s timeless minimal shapes into the forefront of the collection; clean lines, neat folds and unique textures give way to springtime versatility, with a distinct sportswear influence and the power of basics.

DD-Défilé-II-1

Among vivid colours and the sophisticated energy of the season, circular lines, silhouettes and embroidery will play a large role in the new upcoming collection.

Alexander Wang X H&M releases worldwide on Nov 6th

I popped by the Alexander Wang for H&M media preview at their Lot 10 outlet. It’s really just an excuse to hang out with the other fashion media, feast on yummy canapes from Nathalie’s Gourmet (i headed straight for the food first), play dress up, take pictures, laugh, and groove to the same MJ song they played over and over again (thanks for making it stick in my head guys…). This is one of those fun get-togethers that constitutes as work :D

I got coerced into trying on a couple of outfits, wasn’t feeling very up to it at first cos i’d just finished a trying week in Sydney and the Love Bonito event was the night before…

Ok that bandage top is really hot. The way it’s cut gels perfectly with the curve’s of one’s body… i might just get it.

New TV Show Fashion Bloggers Debuts!

I was flown to Sydney for a few days to attend the launch event of Fashion Bloggers, a new TV show by The Style Network in Australia. It debuted on October 15th and follows the lives of 5 of Australia’s top fashion bloggers!

In Malaysia, Fashion Bloggers airs at 10pm every Wednesday night on Channel E! (Ch712 on Astro).

We stayed at Fraser Suites on Kent Street. It was a very comfortable room in which i spent most of my hours in working! The only time i went out in Sydney was to see my cousin for dinner, interview the bloggers, and attend the launch event at night.

My lunch, it was a mere few hours after our breakfast and i was the only one who unabashedly finished the whole meal… i was literally starving by then and will admit not that i am one of those annoyingly skinny people who eat a lot.

The dress actually comes with separate zippered pieces for the top, and a flared bottom, but i decided against it for the look that night.

Styling my Smize

Not sure if a lot of people know this, but i’m half blind. Well that’s just my dramatic way of saying it, but really, if i wasn’t wearing my contact lenses or glasses, i wouldn’t even be able to recognise someone standing right in front of me.

My power is 525..!

So many people have asked why i haven’t got eye laser surgery yet,
and the truth is… i LIKE wearing coloured contact lenses :p

Dahlah i have a legit reason to,
and they make my eyes look so much bigger and nicer in pictures :D

I’ve tried lots of different brands, even random unknown ones bought off the streets of Bangkok and Hong Kong (but i was told they made me look like a baby alien and that convinced me to chuck them). I don’t want lenses that make me look SCARY, i want them to make me look NICER.

Bausch+Lomb, one of the trusted brands in the world (with 160 years of heritage) has released the first cosmetic lens in Malaysia, called LACELLE. The lenses have lace-like details that enhance one’s eyes, and i can attest to it cos i’ve been wearing them for a few weeks now and am still wearing them every day!

The eyes don’t lie…

“Jubilee Violet: give your eyes a romantic tint. An enchanting blink that will mesmerize everyone.”

Don’t my eyes look mesmerizing?! I mean, i don’t want to blow my own horn or anything, but these lenses are SO MAJOR i can’t stop staring at my OWN eyes. The LACELLE lenses are monthly disposable contact lenses, which is what i always buy.

I had a go at wearing 5 different colours the brand picked out for me,
and challenged myself to dress in different OOTDs to try to suit each colour.

Here are some close-ups of the colours are tested (besides the pic above too).

24-kinkybluefairy-contact-lens

“Sparkling Brown: Give your eyes a playful sparkle. You will be the most attractive princess.”

Ok i’m not the one coming up with those taglines okay, but what i WILL say is that i loved these sparkling brown ones cos they were just like their namesake! It matched my hair wonderfully and i feel it’s a colour i’d buy often.

26-kinkybluefairy-contact-lens

“Modest Black: instantly enlarge and brighten your eyes. Sparkle with confidence.”

This was a really fierce kick-ass colour. I can imagine it going great with lots of black and monotone outfits.

9-kinkybluefairy-contact-lens

“Tender brown: softly enhance your eyes for that delicate warmth and allure.”

I figure if the Sparkling Brown is slightly too light for some people who want to be less obtrusive, then the Tender Brown is something more casual and toned down yet warm.

18-kinkybluefairy-contact-lens

“Frozen Grey: give your eyes a touch of glamour and cool elegance for a magnetic attraction.”

Ooh, one of my favourites. First of all, i love Frozen the movie heehee. And i LOVE having silver eyes. And i think these were the perfect shade of silverish grey without being too freaky! (There’s a very thin line for me before crossing into freakish territory.)

19-kinkybluefairy-contact-lens

I’d totally recommend this to anyone cos they’re comfortable. I get up early in the morning, and get home late most nights; and i managed to wear them with no discomfort. The lenses are of FDA-authenticated pigment standard.

The BIGGEST reason why i’d continue wearing them is cos the colours are GORGEOUS.

It can be hard to find coloured contact lenses that have that perfect shade to complement skin and hair tones, and these are so fun… it’s an extension of dressing up cos it changes your entire look!

I’m gonna PROVE it to you with all the looks i came up with haha!

Moschino @ Pavilion

*written by SweetEe and pics by Jane Lee*

I have fond memories of Moschino, as it was the first designer item I bought for myself. A rebel in that era, Moschino attracted attention for its designs which were lively, fun, colourful, witty and provocative. It challenged the fashion establishment i.e. a mockery of the classic Chanel Jacket. ‘Stop The Fashion System’ was definitely one of the brand’s more memorable campaigns.

Its ingenious founder, Franco Moschino, began his fashion journey by being a fashion illustrator for Gianni Versace. Many years later, Moschino the label was born. Today, Moschino’s creative director is Jeremy Scott. The LA-based designer was once an intern for the brand and is known for his wild imagination and daring adventure with fashion.

Moschino is now in Pavilion with a bigger, bolder, and crazier stand alone store that is easy to spot. The store is bright with plenty of mirrors (great for selfies) and mannequins in giant bird cages!

27-KINKYBLUEFAIRY-MOSCHINO-PAVILLION-KL

We attended their event that was to introduce us to their legendary biker bag and the FW 2014 collection. A portion of the famous collection “Fast Fashion – Next Day After the Runway” was also available in the store. Yes peeps, the quirky Ronald McDonald series, and SpongeBob pieces inspired by the catch phrases ‘fast food’ and ‘fast fashion’ are there!

Colours, patterns, more colours! I felt like a kid in a candy store,
with expensive sweets all around me and I just wanted to have em’ all.

The Maison Versace Exhibition @ Pavilion KL

I’ve been a bigger fan of Versace after listening to Donatella speak at Vogue Festival last year, so with all the event invites and work colliding, i decided that this was the only event i was gonna attend this week.

I just don’t have the time to keep on attending events..!
Well if you pay me i’ll make sure my ass is there XD

It takes a lot of effort and time to make up, dress up, and drive to KL okay :p
Thank god this time i had some help so i just had to sit there and let the experts do the work!

aa-shu-uemura-the-met-joyce-wong

Thanks May at Shu Uemura for doing my superhot make up!
I was trying to memorize her strokes while she applied it so i can try emulating it at home.

My new haircut and colour is done by Alex at The Met @ Parkroyal.
Told him to do whatever he wanted.
Secretly i was hoping he might go crazy and make me blonde (i haven’t gone light for ages) but i trust that he’s in the know of whatever colour and cut is coming up right now. So many people have complimented me on this… even in the lift!

No touchy, Shah! I see youuuu
Shah is the new Fashion Editor at ELLE and he just came over to my house to shoot my wardrobe last week.
Make sure you pick up its October issue to have a peek into my closet!

We were all peering closely at the gowns,
commenting how the dresses have traveled the world
and admiring the stunning detailing.

The exhibition is held till this Sunday 7th September at the Centre Court of Pavilion. Catch it if you can as it’s the first time it’s held in Malaysia, and showcases a complete iconic range of Versace products!

Paulius taught me how they say cheers in Lithuania = “I sveikate” which sounds nothing like how it looks to our pronunciation of the alphabet. I write it down as “Eesrakata” for my own referral.
