BALMAIN RESORT 2014

Balmain has always been very near my heart. Still does with the 2014 Resort collection too. I have always been a fan of three things in this collection: Houndstooth, Denim and anything White. Loving the way they used houndstooth and their pieces of denim on denim was done divinely.

Fashion Feed : Allien Gan, Ezzati Amira, Pearly Wong & Tsyahmi at KLFW 2013

4 in 1

DAY ONE – PART THREE

Third show of the first day of KLFW 2013 by Allien Gan, Ezzati Amira, Pearly Wong & Tsyahmi.

ALLIEN GAN

An emerging self-taught stylist cum designer, Allien Gan emphasized his collection on black and white monotones, enhanced by the body harness in patent leather which I love so much. He made the body harness classier and less dominatrix when married together with his outfits.

EZZATI AMIRA

A super fresh designer with very high promising future, Ezzati Amira presented very wearable collection. I like how she choreographed her collection. Its like listening to soft sedative music which slowly and surely transcended to more upbeat notes towards rock, which is more like her personality. Her collection started off with pieces of simple silhouettes of stripes in earthy tones towards darker and more daring colours and closing it with two of my fave pieces of Led Zeppelin tops and sequinned skirt and dress that have that 3D colour effects. This is a girl who dares to step up her game plan. I look forward for her next collection!

Top: My fave pieces!

PEARLY WONG

Pearly Wong used black as her main tone and played with different kinds of fabric, material, textures and cuts. Her design lies in the details and also on how she is a strong advocate of sustainable and wearable, multi-functional designs and fashion aesthetics  that can last for as long long as it can.

I have also worn one of the multifunctional pieces during the fashion week.You can see here for the details of the design.

TSYAHMI

Since I knew Syahmi from the 10 Rising Stars of Malaysia International Fashion Week 2009, which he won the title Most Promising Designer of the Year, he was indeed a very promising designer, with exemplary ethics, values and attitude which most of the young ones are lacking. This is a guy with vision and patience when it comes to his goals. I like it that he put so much thoughts, research and time to gain experience and more knowledge before he kicked start his label; Tsyahmi. His short absence in the scene was very well worth it.

Emphasizing on accessible luxury women’s Ready-to-Wear line, his opening Pre-Spring 2014 collection, “Lithium”; showcased fresh looking designs which are very feminine, but modern and edgy through his play of asymmetrical and bias cuts, silhouettes and clever choice of clashing fabrics in fresh colours. On a footnote, I also think the soundtrack “Intro” by The XX was a perfect choice for the introduction of Tsyahmi. This is one designer I look forward to, always.

For this collection, Tsyahmi collaborated with Nelissa Hilman for the shoes designed specially for the collection. From a close up look, the shoes were divine. I’ll share with you on Nelissa’s collaboration soon.

That’s all for now guys. I’ll post more on the KLFW 2013. Sooner or later, I will post it. Thanks again for your patience. 🙂

Fashion Feed : PRADA Fall Winter 2013 Ad Campaign

PRADA Fall Winter 2013 Video Ad Campaign

I love love love the whole look and feel of Prada‘s Fall Winter 2013 Ad Campaign!

The sexy, seductive and dark looking models with their greasy oiled slick hair and skin so translucent, exude such raw sensuality and sophistication to it. I think the advertising video is provocative yet decorous in manner. It commanded attention and evoked myriads of emotions. Don’t get me started on the collection. It’s Prada for God’s sake. Nuff said.

Hats off to Miuccia Prada and team!

Fashion Styling : Behind The Scene of “Reflections” Photo Shoot

DSC_0857

Few weeks ago, Idan asked me if I want to do styling for a test shoot. There can only be one answer and I obviously said Yessssss…!

The shoot was scheduled three days after Idan’s invitation. I was still in KK and was only coming back to KL a day before the shoot. Go figure lah! This was gonna be a challenge. A minor one but a challenge nonetheless and I decided to go for it.

The photo shoot team were:

Photographer: Idan
Art Direction: Idan and Myself (Nareez Zabidi)
Stylist: Myself (Nareez Zabidi)
Wardrobe Assistant: Iskandar
Hairstylist: Ckay Liow
Make Up Artist: Alvin Loh
Models: Yuen & Noelle

The theme and concept for the shoot is Reflections. Basically anything shiny, mirror-ish, metallic and reflective will be the main accents. Based on the references, I’m going to need to do some DIY to achieve some of the looks. After some brainstorm, I had some ideas, which I will share only after the edited photos are out soon.

Upon landing in KL, I contacted a dear friend, Megat from Syaiful Baharim to loan some outfits for the shoot and he fabulously agreed. Yay! So credits to Syaiful Baharim too for giving the green light. On the day of the shoot, I made a stop at Syaiful Baharim Atelier to get the outfits. Right before the shoot, I made a stop at a hardware store to get some supplies for my on-the-spot DIY for the shoot.

Excited? Do tune in to The F Words for final edited photos. For now, here are some sneak peaks and teasers for yah!

Fashion Feed : Day 1 at KLFW 2013 (Part Deux)

Day 1 ab

PART DEUX

So let’s continue on the journey of my fashion feed to all you fashion hungers of Day 1 at the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2013.

SILAS LIEW

in collaboration with NELISSA HILMAN

My first love for Silas Liew was from his debuted womenswear label for Spring Summer 2013 collection. But of course I love him for his cheeky personality way before I saw his designs. Dandy; would be the first word that popped out of my head upon seeing him the first time with his personal style nowadays.

Enough about him, let’s talk about his latest collection now. If from Spring Summer 2013, the designs were mainly more feminine though sporty. For Fall, Silas Liew maintained the sporty accent which started off with racerback body cons dresses to boxier silhouettes with a touch of bright hues, to much more interesting detailing twists on loosely menswear-inspired designs which he brilliantly married and made it look a tad whimsical. Every outfit was paired with shoes by Nelissa Hilman, who is a rising shoemaker.

(Psst..I’ll be writing a post just on Nelissa’s collaborations with the designers in KLFW 2013 soon. Stay tuned.)

SL1

SL2 SL3 SL4 SL5 SL6

I love the back details of this top. Sexay!SL7 SL8 SL10 SL9

From here, you can see the super soft material of the fabric that is being used on the dress. The material is like ultrasuede because it looks so soft but I’m not quite sure. Love the soft panelling and trimmings too.

SL11

Here are the two outfits that caught a lot of attention. Why is that? It’s because of the Dollar prints of course. Silas cleverly made a playful take on the Benjamins and mass printed it on leathers before he made them into patterns and designs of the outfits you see here. Clever cheeky guy!

SL12 SL13

I like how he styled this Dollar notes cape top with the white shirt in.

SL14 SL15

Top & Bottom: Here are what I meant by Silas’s genius take on marrying menswear and womens cut all in one. From the front it looks like a normal loose dress under a boyfriend blazer jacket. But at the back is actually either a loose pants or a knee-length skirts. Pandai! SL16

SYOMIR IZWA

I love this sweet sweet honey! Syomir, in my opinion is not just a designer who only thinks about making creations and designs for his collections but he also see it in as many aspects as he can grasped creatively and entrepreneurially, especially with a strong business partner and best friend; Ena Rusli; who is his business associate (Managing Director of Syomir Izwa) that also oversee the business. I say this because there are still many designers out there that still do not grasp the fact that they cannot just survive their businesses on running by being talented and creative designers only. They need strong partners, associates, or advisers to oversee and administer the business acumen of better growth, brand development and more.

So, back to Syomir. His collection this time around has been an experimentation on his part. Inspired mainly by the Hampton’s Country Club culture and of its field sports such as golf and tennis as well as the club style luncheon and parties, his main details are the pastel colour combination, which he claimed as his first time playing with soft hues that aimed to look bold. I’d like to say he aced it and his choice of pastels are perfect. There were a lot of paneling done as well, which was part of his exploration on how far he can play it around with lines and flirty ruffles.

SI1

I love this flirty, sexy cape. It’s gonna be perfect for my beach holidays!SI2 SI3 SI4 SI5

Top: Here, as you can see Syomir presented his mini introduction on menswear for the very first time. Do expect more of these to come in the coming future. I think they are sexy in pastels.SI6 SI8 SI10

I love love love love love the stripey long skirt so much! I think I told Syomir too many times like a broken record by now. Haha! I am going to get myself this skirt!SI9 SI11 SI12

Top: Syomir also presented few pieces of his collection that caters to the hijab community too. Yuna was one of the first persona who wore his first hijab-inspired design couple of years back.

From bottom downwards: I love every details of his long dresses and how it made them moved in such sexy and softly seductive silhouettes.SI13 SI14 SI15 SI16 SI17 SI18

Fashion Diary : Day 2 at KLFW 2013

wpid-IMG_20130620_192932.jpg

Day 2 at KLFW 2013 was all in all FUN & FABULOUS!

Started the day with 12.30pm show by four designers: For All by Villiam Ooi, Mimpikita, When Our Eyes Met and Zero To Ten. This time, I wasn’t only there to see the show but to help out Min (Yasmin Ramli), the designer of When Our Eyes Met, with the guest arrangements. The show was great! Will post up the fashion feed soon.

The main highlight of Day 2 was definitely the show by Jonathan Liang.  The show was nothing short of spectacular. It was a full house filled with fashionable socialites, celebrities, fashionistas, designers and more. All I saw was gorgeous, fabulous fashion people gathered for the show and made it all hyped up. I mean..it’s Jonathan Liang right?

When the show ended, that’s when the real party began! Hahaa! This is when all the fashion people round up not just to have a chat or two but to get crazier than we already are and partayyy!

Fashion Diary : First Day of KLFW 2013.

image

The first day of KLFW 2013 has just ended. There were 5 shows for the day showcasing 13 designers. I attended all shows and captured every single outfit and the detailing too. I can’t wait to share it with you.

It has also been a super tiring day for me and I should hit the sack soon to get ready for the second day. Hence, I will not be posting the fashion feed for today’s show yet. But I promise you I will do so soonest.

The shows were spectacular, though it started a bit late. Oh well..it’s the Malaysian fashion scene. Nuff said. Nonetheless, I’d say everything else was fabulous and amazing. The shows. The fashion people. Everyone made that little effort to look fierce and fantastic. And it is only the first day!

My outfit of the day I decided to use my utilitarian army jacket again with a full black sequinned dress, black clutch and my black boots with Anna dello Russo emerald earrings. I purposely played the contrasting elements of the glam up and utilitarian looks in one.

Jacket: from a friend. Sequinned dress: Zara. Boots: Zara. Clutch bag: flea market. Earrings: Anna Dello Russo from H&M. Bracelets: Lovisa and Eight.

Fashion Feed : J Mendel Resort 2014 Collection.

I love J. Mendel’s Resort 2014 Collection. The lines, patterns, shapes and silhouettes were all well executed.

“Ma Sirène”, a poem written by Robest Desnos was said to be part of Gilles Mendel’s inspiration behind this collection. It was about the underwater blue siren. There weren’t much blue in the collection though. There were black, white, cream, and soft pink. I can see some layering done. Probably inspired from the waves of the sea.

There were a lot of stripes. I love stripes. Mendel has always avoided this but he wanted to experiment it this time and it worked. The stripes on the dresses and skirt were flattering and dramatic but subtle in a way. Sheer organza was prominently used. A peek-a-boo accent in all the right places.

So tell me, which one is your favourite?
