Danish Jewellery Crush

As a jewellery lover, I have countless pieces of accessories at home, yet always on the look out for chic and cool designs. Earlier on I went to Copenhagen for the fashion week, and had the chance to visit The Jewllery room where a curated selection of Scandinavian jewellery designers were showcasing the collection.  Danish jewellery are worldly known for its simplistic yet ubercool designers- sleek and cool, therefore I had to make sure I find time to visit the show space.

15mins with Yassin Saidi on Puma X McQ SS15 Collection

I had the pleasure to have a 15mins chat with him about this beautiful collaboration. Over our chat, Yassin gave me an insight on how happy he is working with the McQ team on this second collaboration, because to him this seems very ‘organic’.

The coolest eyewear of the season- brought to you by the coolest will.i.am

I love wearing sunglasses, because the sun is really so bright that it hurts my eyes if I don’t have any protection. I have more than 15 pairs of sunglasses at home, but only 3 brands in total. I have to confess that  I’m a loyal fans to Rayban- I’ve got more than 7 pairs of Raybans in 3 styles. It is quite hard to tempt me to buy sunglasses made by other brands..however just recently, when i learnt about the optics line that Will.i.am was about to launch, I had a sneakpeek of the actual products before the launch, it did tempt me to get a pair… Naming his first eyewear collection III.I Optics , (check out the website for th...

When Shoe-aholic meets Shoe Queen….

If you’ve read the recent September issue, you will be able to see there’s an interview with Charlotte Olympia at her home, (if you haven’t, be sure to get that issue before it’s all sold out!) That’s the sign outside Charlotte’s shoe/clothes room..lets just call it her cloak room, I couldn’t help but cracked up when I saw it while we were waiting for Charlotte to get ready. I had the opportunity to visit Charlotte Olympia at her home in London, and she warmly invited us to talk us through her closets.. The gorgeous Charlotte is full of wit, humour, charm and she’s so down-to-earth – she’s just too sweet!! So can you im...
