The Matches fashion event held at Duddells Hong Kong last night was a fashionista’s dream come true. Plenty of designer niche labels were on display across womenswear, menswear, high end jewellery, handbags and arguably the most important category…shoes.
For those who don’t know about Matches, they are a UK luxury fashion retailer who curate a range of talented designers (famous and emerging) from across the globe. They are truly loved by fashionistas whom appreciate the brand’s ability to spot talented emerging designers, and are incredibly approachable when it comes to talking about fashion (unlike SO many other brands out there!). In other words, they really aren’t up their own a**.
The other good news is they ship worldwide from their online store, and held their first pop up event in Hong Kong last night! Here are some of Carmen’s top picks from the event:
Talitha floral embroidered kimono:
Peter Pilotto dress: We just love the combination of colour blocking, geometric design and prints all in one! Chrissie Morris shoes: you just KNOW these would be super comfortable! We would team the heels on the right with a simple white pencil skirt.
THE coolest clutches ever below by Sarah’s bag (back and right with the cars) and Les Petits Joueurs (front and left with the smile and peace sign):Charlotte Olympia “I am a fan!” bag: love the name and love the bag
Dolce & Gabbana shoes: oh gosh where do we start with this? These shoes are art and if we see anyone wearing these we may tackle them for wearing such beauties (but follow that by a hug for their impressive taste in shoes):
Givenchy high top shoes: O M G Carmen wanted to stop everyone in their tracks to look at these but managed to calm herself down (eventually):Palm tree clutch by Edie Parker: loving the mother of pearl!
Strapless dress by Osman: TRUST US – this dress would look a million bucks when worn.Love the simplicity of this J.W.Anderson white shirt dress below. One of THE standouts of the night, this skirt by Stella Jean.
