New In From Hong Kong

newin_from_hongkong

Today, I'm very excited to share with you three of my recent purchase. I don't know about you guys, but as a blog reader myself, I really enjoy reading what other bloggers have in their latest collection. So I thought this might be interesting. Plus, this gives me a chance to practice my photography skills at home, which is pretty fun to be honest. I'll be posting once a while about my new in, what do you think? 

一直都很喜歡看身邊的朋友分享新入手的一些任何東西,除了能吸收資訊,更能發現每個人的風格都不盡相同。於是,今天決定來小小分享一下這次香港行入手的單品,希望你們會覺得有趣(笑)

1. Stella McCartney Tote

As you may or may not know, Stella McCartney is one of my favourite designers. I was first attracted to the brand's ethics, and a few months back when I got my first Stella bag from net-a-porter (read about it here), I was so happy with it, a complete balance of fashion and ethics. And trust me, the quality is just as good as real leather! This bag works perfectly as a travel tote, you can pretty much just dump everything in. My camera, phone, passport, map, sunglasses..etc. There was both black and grey in the store, which actually took me a while to decide since I'm all for those basic colours. In the end, I went for grey because it seems more casual and outfit going. (the black one has gold chains, probably thats why it looks a little bit formal and mature to me).

相信 Stella McCartney 這個品牌並不需要我多做介紹,不管是因為她父親 Paul McCartney 或是因為熱衷時尚而認識她的,對於這個人相信你們都略知一二。不過,我一開始會注意到她,其實是因為她提倡的 Vegan Fashion;她將環保主義全面性地注入到自己的生活上,當然,這也包括了她的品牌。是的,在她的衣服、鞋子和包包上,是找不到任何的動物性皮革,羊毛和絲絨或許還是找得到,但是皮革這種對動物有直接且致命的材質,她是絕對不使用的。會對 Stella McCartney 著迷,是欣賞她的才華,更是仰慕她的毅力和決心。

這次入手的款式,是品牌非常經典的 Falabella 鏈子托特包,材質是用回收塑膠瓶做成的布料,觸感和外觀就像是真的麂皮一樣,不說真的不會發現,包上的金屬鍊條在電鍍的過程上也是力求環保,盡量避免任何的環境污染。這樣追求完美的堅持,逐一實現理想的精神,讓人由衷佩服。其實這陣子因為某些個人因素,開始考慮成為素食主義者,自己也陸陸續續開上網搜尋資料,想要在下決定前,做更進一步的瞭解,確定這個生活方式是適合自己的。

2. J.Crew Basic Tops & Shorts

I am really into basic items, like a white t-shirt or an loosen stripe top. I'm so in love with them that it kinda became an obsession. In my opinion, simplicity makes the strongest statement. It doesn't matter if you're only wearing a white t-shirt with skinny jeans, with the right structure of accessories, you can still look amazing.  As you can see, I got a little crazy in the J.Crew store in the IFC Mall, I ended up leaving the store with three tops and a pair of navy shorts. I reckon they will all be absolute perfect for the rest of the summer.

越是簡單的款式,越是難找到完全適合自己的。一件好的襯衫、純白舒服的 t-shirt 或是一條合乎自己腿型的貼身牛仔褲,這些看似常見的單品,往往需要花費最多的時間找尋,至少對我來說是。每次到香港旅行,都會特定去逛一些品牌,畢竟有些品牌台灣還沒進,都是要在購物網站上才找得到。對於沒嘗試過的版型和款式,我基本上都還是堅持要看過試穿過;一來是因為照片和實品通常都還是有誤差,二來是因為我的身高在亞洲人裡面還是算嬌小,大部份的衣服(特別是褲子),都還是要改過,看過實品才能決定值不值得再花一筆修改費。

很喜歡 J. Crew 給人的簡潔幹練形象,去年夏天在紐約發現他們的棉質上衣好穿又好看,於是這次在香港給自己增添了幾件基本款,搭配性高,這樣這些單品就不會只限於夏天了,九月到了倫敦也都能拿出來穿。在 J. Crew 也能找到偏法式風格的 St. James,同樣的極簡剪裁,同樣的好穿,感覺和歐洲的風格不謀而合(突然發現,這趟完全是在為往後的倫敦生活治裝啊)

3. Chiara Ferragni Slip On

These days, it seems pretty common to have a pair of slip on sneakers in your closet..or perhaps two! And I'm sure you are all pretty familiar with Chiara Ferragni's footwear line, the iconic blinking eyes is definitely a genius. Fun pieces are always my best friend, remember the A-Esque Emotion Bag I bought from Australia? I mean if you're a girl who normally goes for simple outfits like me, I really recommend  to spice things up a bit with an interesting pair of shoes. I was actually considering the Denim Hollywood Star Espadrilles, but the only place I can find them is via the internet, but I'm pretty conservative when it comes to shoes, I won't buy a pair if I've never tried them on before. Anyways, I stumbled across these cute monster slip sneakers in Central Hong Kong, and instantly fell in love. I mean, seriously, looks at that face! How cute is that! 

今天這雙鞋子很可愛吧,The Blonde Salad 的鞋款早已紅透半邊天,但比起撫媚的扎眼亮片鞋,我更喜歡看起來詭譎有趣的怪獸系列。不穿高跟鞋的我,對於設計特別的休閒鞋款總是特別感興趣,簡單的穿搭配上會讓人忍不住多開兩眼的鞋子或是包包,這就是我喜歡的風格。衣服一切從簡,奪取焦點這種事就交給身上的其他配件吧!其實本來是想要買丹寧牛仔草編鞋,但後來想想好像還是 Slip on 休閒球鞋實穿,黑色的底,不管哪個季節翻牌率都很高。

There you have it, my new-ins from Hong Kong. I hope you enjoyed it! xx
