It feels good to be writing another outfit post as it’s been almost three weeks since the last one.

I enjoy writing the odd outfit posts because these are the occasions where I’m not restricted to writing about a specific collection, designer or event – although those reviews are pretty fun to write too. Once in a while I like to stretch my imagination and allow myself some room to let my creativity fly. That’s why I’ve made the very exciting decision to join La Vida magazine as one of their interns. 🙂 Continue Reading
I cannot believe how fast time has flown by! Almost three weeks have gone since I came home from my incredible trip to South East Asia! Now I’m about to wrap up all my SE Asian outfit posts with this shoot at the sci-fi movie set-like Gardens by the Bay in Singapore.
This is hands down the most contemporary… Continue Reading
So it’s been almost a week since I returned from my wonderful trip to South East Asia, and I’m still not quite climatising to the unique Mancunian weather. Then again, I suppose one second sunshine and hailing the next is never easy for anyone to get used to.
One of the absolute highlights of my trip was undoubtedly the brief stay in Langkawi, where these photos were taken:

It’s a great shame that I’m not home to share this all important occasion on the Lunar calender with my family so this one is for them, but what I’m able to share with all of you guys is this new outfit post… which is just as good… Yes/Yes? Anyway, after my wonderful stay in Northern Thailand, I decamped to Myanmar, or “Burma” as some of you may know it as.
This shoot took place at an old style merchant shop front, a location I selected for personal reasons. It spoke to me in a nostagic kind of way as I grew up in another(!!) British colony where reminiscence of the colonial times like this was easily evident pretty much everywhere, so I felt at home in this completely alien place.
In between my London Collections: Men reports and hectic travel schedule, I like to give you guys and myself a quick break by sharing this new outfit post!!
For the first leg of my adventure, I flew from Manchester via Doha with a quick touch-down in Bangkok to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. The next day, I travelled further up north of the country to the Mai Chau Valley. After just one night stay, I then left the valley for the other-worldly beautiful nature reserve known as Pu Luong, where this heavenly water cascade was located just down the hill from the lodge I was staying in, with a lovely Thai-ethnic family.
