I have had a love affair with Hong Kong since forever and part of this love affair includes embroidery. Embroidered anything to be precise.
My first trip to Hong Kong at the age of ten was an eye-opener. Hong Kong was a very different place in those days and the quest for embroidery far easier than it is today. Hong Kong is a fabulous fast-paced city with an eye for the modern rather than the traditional.
I understand desire for change and progress, but my love for the old-style continues.
I prefer to be behind the camera, always and forever.
Full stop. Say no more. Please let me take the photographs rather than feature in them.
Except when we are on holidays it is fun to have snaps of all the friends and the happy times. The last few days I have been celebrating a friend’s birthday in Italy and we have taken millions of photographs.
How can it be some shots are amazingly fabulous and others are downright awful? I mean, it is nothing to do with reality, I am far too old to expect miracles and yet a little photogenic kindness would not go astray.
I have had a crush on the side stripe for a while now.
There was a great pair of velvet track style pants in my wardrobe with satin stripes for some time. They worked in so many ways, until they didn’t. That was more about a fabric split than a style malfunction.
A new pair is definitely in order.
Let’s think of these trousers as an addition to our ‘black and white’ dressing rather than as humble athletic pants.
That ship sailed a while ago.
The side stripe pant may have its origins in sportswear but it is a pant to be worn everywhere and in a variety of ways.
