It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I met Ching on the way home from work. She travels around all over Asia alot. She wore a casual attire to work this day as she says. Ching’s wearing a floral patterned and hooded jacket from Malaysia, a baggy white blouse, oversized pockets cropped trousers and some cute and chic brown boots.

Occupation: Art Student
Favourite Place to Shop: Zara
I did not expect this attire from a 21 year old Art Student, but I like it alot. Speaking with Lee Kai more about his interests, he also makes films and music videos and have a very businessman attitude about him. Keeping the trilby, loafers and blazer/shirt combo casual with the dark jeans, I really liked the outfit. (He also carried a man-bag but he put it down for the shot, shame.)

I met this lovely couple at a business party in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. And what an interesting couple they were! Originally from Edinburgh, they moved to Hong Kong several years ago and move between HK and Japan. The lovely Jane DJs indie music all across the world from Japan to England to Germany. I spotted Jane first because of her amazing purple briefcase bag. I loved Mike’s loafers and smart/casual attire with the shirt and blazer whereas I wanted to steal Jane’s tap shoes………

Molly was networking with her friends at a business party I was attending to. I loved her high waisted trousers, I hadn’t seen a pair like these before. The beige worked well with the rest of her dark outfit. She said she just finished work, didn’t have a chance to change and rushed straight to the party, but I thought her attire was very chic.

I met this lovely couple in Causeway Bay on the way to a business party. I loved their matching fashion sense in the oversized scarves, jeans and black leather shoes. A popular trend in HK are the trilbies and matching attire. I feel the jacket makes it more casual than office. A very nice and cool couple.
Name: Cindy John
Occupation: Graphic Designer
Favourite Place to Shop: I love clothes given by people
I met Cindy John whilst shopping. We shared a great interest in ‘hand-me-downs’ by friends, something I loveeee accepting off my friends. If something doesn’t suit them, it may suit you and vice versa. Probably felt really good about myself thinking like that until I realised Gok Wan always goes on and on about it. I loved Cindy John’s beige 3/4 length sleeve coat and her patterned silk scarf. Simple toned but very sophisicated.
Favourite Place to Shop: UltraSoundBoots
Partnered with previous street style portrait David, Alexis is also a swedish designer located in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. He designs shoes and phone/camera bags (which he is wearing one now). Alexis’ style of clothes gives a very europeon feel. I liked his rolled up jeans with the black boots.
Name: David Ericsson
Favourite Place to Shop: Tokyo
A simple and casual look, I like a guy who wears a denim shirt. David is a swedish product designer who lives in Hong Kong. I met him at one of his shop parties in Sheung Wan where his shop is based. An extremely nice and friendly guy, he shares his shop with other designer friend Alexis which they sells watches and shoes. http://www.voidwatches.com
Favourite Place to Shop: Mong Kok, Hong Kong.
I met these two when I was taking photos of some breakdancers at night with my friends in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. I thought these two were adorable! Both eating pocky sticks and had a very cute and lively atmosphere about them. As the other colour trend in Hong Kong besides from black is beiges/browns, I thought these two matched each other’s outfits really sweetly. In the winter weather, as said before, trench coats are very popular this year, whereas ankle, calf and knee furry boots are too. A common trend has been to buy these attachable furs to your boots to keep your legs even warmer. They vary in colour and style. aka. leopard prints. Think of some female ravers with skimpy outfits but long furry boots on…but in a better way suited for winter.

Batwing jumpers are hugeeee at the moment. Hong Kong is an absolute fashion follower of baggy clothes but the batwing tops look playful and elegant at the same time. Perfect for daytime and night. Whereas William teams up a leather jacket with cropped trousaurs. Both finished work and went shopping, I would have never guessed..
Occupation: Graphic Designer
Favourite Place to Shop: Hong Kong Markets
I met Marc in Fo Tan, Hong Kong where there was a mass arts event in different studios in the area. Leather shoes and tailored trousaurs are definately a favourite in the sophisicated look in mens fashion here in HK as well as black trench coats in its colder weather at the moment. What I see alot are guys wearing man-bags here, which I love! More guys should do this in England..
Occupation: Shoes Designer
Favourite Place to Shop: Tsim Sha Tsui and H&M
I met Keiko on the streets of Causeway Bay as she was out shopping. She mostly enjoys shopping at second-hand shops. As previously expressing how the trend in Hong Kong at the moment is to be dressed in black, I felt Keiko stood out with her pastel coloured clothes, subtly matching her jumper dress with her socks. I love her white tights, which looked great against the black and light blues.
As shopping seems to be at ALL hours in Hong Kong, I strolled around Causeway Bay after work and it’s still as busy as ever in comparison to the day. I found Suki as she was out shopping by herself..
Favourite Place to Shop: Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
As said previously, black seems to be a mass trend in HK. The overall appearance seems very sophisicated and slightly has a gothic feel with the dark red lipstick and dark makeup. I loved how her gold watch matched her bag and studded belt. Her platform shoes were amazing! And although around 4/5 inches high, she seemed to walk in them too easily….jealous.

I spotted Caroline around Tsim Sha Tsui doing some street photography. She’s wearing a Glam Rock hoodie, some retro leggings from Tokyo and some furry boots her mum got her from China. I especially liked how her casual outfit had flashes of red everywhere.
Hello! Belated introductions. My name is Vicky, I’m currently working in Hong Kong for the next few months. I thought it’d be interesting to see the different variations of fashion styles from western to eastern!

I had to bring my camera to work and luckily on the way, stopped this sweet girl, Carrie. Although to me, the weather in October here is still quite warm (roughly 18 – 23 degrees), people in HK seem to wrap up already in winter gear! The first thing I’ve definately noticed here is the amount of people who dress in black. Black is the new deal here I guess. Originally, I didn’t think you could mix and match that much in just black clothing but seeing the variety of people that do here, my opinion has changed.
Carrie was out shopping with her friends wearing a black leather jacket, black ruffled top, polka-dot skirt, with some winter boots. She matches with a black hairband with flashes of bling from her tiara necklace and cute rings.
Until next time…….! (tomorrow hopefully)
