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.)

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.

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 Feed : Day 1 of KLFW 2013 (Part 1)

Day 1 ab

Yes..yes, I know by now it’s considered long overdue for me to post up collections by designers who have showcased their designs one or two days or weeks ago. But what the heck, I told myself and was also told not to stress myself out on being the first or second fastest to post up the latest news. So, here I am taking my time at my own pace (not too long I hope), to post up Day 1 of KLFW 2013.

12:30 pm – OPENING SHOW OF KLFW 2013

JASMI REJAB

Since I first knew Jasmi in 2007, his design has never been short of rawness with a bit of a rough edge and a playful touch of soft fabrics that he cleverly uses in his designs, which are also sexy. Those are definitely his signatures that maintain the identity of what Jasmi Rejab represented, especially with the headgears such as the goggles on the runway models.

JR1 JR2 JR3 JR4 JR5 DSC_0964_editedUnique eyewear such as these goggles were always his signature.

JR6 JR8

I love the shoes that Jasmi used for his runway models. Its exactly what I would wear myself.

JIMMY LIM

I just love Jimmy. I mean everyone loves this sweetheart. Even with numerous designs accolades around his belts, he always says hi and greets everyone and never a sec without a smile on his face. Talking about his designs identity, I like his playful take on his design signature. He doesn’t take it all too seriously but yet surely in his design executions. For this collection his designs are basically contemporary and a bit sporty yet still feminine.

You can check out his website for more info and details here.

JL1

I love this cute knapsack Jimmy designed using the same fabric as the shorts!

JL4

I like how the thin material of the hoodie cape gives a lightweight feel to the outfit and it subdued the sequinned dress on the inside. Clever contrast.

JL9

I love anything that has to do with fringe, fringe, fringe! and this one just swish, swish, swish!JL5

and I love this fringe too!

PU3

Now what can I say about these two twins? Officially known as Puteri Azalea or everyone else calls her by Cho and the other is Puteri Yasmin or we all call her Min. These twin beauties might look alike to you but they are very much different from one another in their taste and views on certain matters including designs and inspirations, but they somehow jived them well into raw, punk and edgy creations from Min’s perspectives which blends well with the dark, eclectic yet soft and feminine side of Cho that made them into the beautiful idiosyncrasy of PU3.

For this collection, I saw a lot of contrasting fabrics that they used in the designs. There were sheer mesh fabrics, leather and suede leather as well in interesting cuts, from soft to dark colours.

PU1 PU2 PU3 PU4 PU5 PU6

I like the detailing here on how they have panels of mesh fabric and leathers which give that tough but feminine look to it.

I want this shoe please!

YADOTSA

Yadotsa is a pretty new name in the industry but already has its own fan-based and going strong. Headed by Alia Alizar, they showcased a very wearable and uber feminine collection. The outfits have interesting cuts as well and I love the metal belt accents they cinched on few outfits.

Y1 Y2 Y3 Y4 Y5

The back of this dress is lovely. It’s like a separated top and skirt but it’s not. I think it’s brilliant!

I like how the skirt swish and swoosh in its fruo frou way on the runway.

The lovely girl of Yadotsa: Alia Alizar. I like her.

Fashion Diary : Day 4 at KLFW 2013

wpid-IMG_20130701_203725.jpg

The fourth day of KLFW’13 was a bit funny to me, on a personal level.

I arrived a tad late but just in time for the runway. Oops.. And the worst thing that could happen to a blogger is when she realized that her camera was without it’s battery!!! Oh f*ckarama! I was in such a rush that I totally forgot to take the battery from the charger deck before i hit the road to KLFW. Aaarrghhhh…! Silly me. Nevertheless, this didn’t dampened my spirit to get the details of the runway. I still have my trusted Samsung Note 2 and the camera is good enough to do the job. Phewww.

The first show was Menswear collections by Bon Zainal, Fairuz Ramdan, Joe Chia and Roslan Wilkinson. Fairuz Ramdan made a pretty interesting twist in his collection. Can you relate menswear and teddy bears? Well, more details on The F Words Fashion Feed on his collection soon.

Right after the show ended, I rushed off home to get the battery. Hurray!

Next show I looked forward to was the show by one of the best and most talented local designers I’m honored to know and befriended; Khoon Hooi. One should never miss a show by Khoon Hooi, or he/she will miss out a lot! Stay tuned as I’ll update you more of his collection and details soon.

The final show of the day was by Farah Khan. As always, Farah Khan will have her own team navigated the whole show. From guests registration to floor management to curating the show. Every guest were well taken care of. As for the show, it was fab, fab, fabulous. Thumbs up!

Here are some photos of the day to tease you on my next few posts of the runway shows.

On the day, I decided to go for preppy/glam look. I wore my fave white sleeveless shirt I got from flea market for a steal, my camouflage skirt and i put on my chunky bling necklace to give contrast on the preppy shirt. By this day, as you can see I wore the same boots since my first day. I decided that the boots were my official KLFW boots because it was super comfy and fierce at the same time. Hehee.

As for the vest, it’s from Pearly Wong. It is a multi-functional vest that can be worn in many ways and I love anything multi-functional as I always recycle my outfits in different style. Here are some of the photos on how the vest look like.

Multi-functional Vest: Pearly Wong. Top: flea market. Skirt: The Extra Piece. Boots: Zara. Clutch: flea market. Necklace: Anna Dello Russo from H&M. Bracelet: Lovisa.

Here, you can see how it can be worn like a vest when it is unbuttoned (right). And when it is buttoned up, it looks like a pull over dress (left).
