Exotic beauty, made in Hong Kong
Written by Tania Braukämper
It was this time last year that we started to notice the slowly creeping roots of an oriental fashion
trend. It’s been lingering around the edges, but hasn’t quite broken
out in full force. We don’t expect that to change this year, but it’s an
influence of the exotic we’ll be keeping an eye on – particularly as 1920s fashion
similarly maintains its haze of inspiration over high fashion.
Having just featured La Perla’s latest lingerie
collection mixing East and West, it’s timely to also shine a spotlight on Timmothy Lee
‘s Made In Hong Kong II – a follow up to the similarly intriguing Made In Hong Kong.
Styling by Vincent Choi is eclectic. Turbans and tassel earrings with
floral espadrilles and stockings; an exotic patterned skirt with a
satin bomber and sporty sun visor; a peplumed bustier layered over a
chunky knit… All these colourful combinations are played against
backdrops that celebrate Timmothy Lee’s birthplace of Hong Kong. Makeup by Hilary Hui, rich red lips and gold lids, adds to the exoticism.
