Joe Chia Episode 1

Pictures taken by Esther X

Two days ago, Joe Chia hosted a party showcasing his latest collection. Haven't giving much attention to our local fashion scene, the only thing I knew was, Jane Chuck is fond of his designs.  

But when I saw the invitation available to public, I decided to give it a whirl. As my first fashion show, it's a refreshing experience being able to be there in person.

The choice of fabric, symmetrical cut, and neutral tones combined bring his inspiration comes to life. Revolving each chapter(collection) on basic and timeless concept, Joe Chia doesn't conform to trends. Instead he wrapped it together with adventurous cuts and drappings - think loose turtle neck and asymmetrical hemline - channelling his design with his signature black and white shades(with random shade of neutrals)- making every pieces uncommon and unique.

His designs are not only wearable, it's affordable price range are worth mentioning. For less than RM300, local fashionista can afford to wear a local designer brand- with an edge. For that, I am sold!

Madewell Et Sezane

To me, the collaboration of Madewell et Sezane is perfect. It offers a great mix of the French chic and the American casual laidback style. The best thing about these collection is  that just about any person can pull the whole look effortless. Each article of clothing is easy to play around from skinny jeans, trench coat to printed shirts. Boy, do I miss the cold weather in NZ. I'm waiting for the day when I can finally find a reason to get a winter trench coat. The most obvious answer is to go back. The day will come. I hope.

Gypsy

In search for the basic denim shirt, I bought this at K- Styleme thinking that it will fit me perfectly. Boy, was I wrong? I misjudged the fitting through the photos on site(common mistakes when online shopping), turns out better as a layering device.  And this is what I came out with. As you can see, the denim shirt added some roughness on this otherwise demure look.
