Last night at Matches fashion popup event in HK: D&G, Peter Pilotto & more!

IMG_1032The 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: 

IMG_0997Malone Souliers shoes – which according to Matches, will be the next Louboutins! They are such works of art! IMG_0998


Peter Pilotto dress: We just love the combination of colour blocking, geometric design and prints all in one! IMG_1001 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. 

Toga Pulla & Anya Hindmarch:  Toga Pulla was founded by former costume designer and stylist, Yasuko Furuta. IMG_1006

Mansur Gavriel bag: Simplicity in fashion = love. IMG_1007

Gripoix jewellery: The French atelier has been creating luxury costume jewellery since 1868, they are one of (if not THE) oldest in the trade. Stunningly beautiful pieces. IMG_1008

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):IMG_1023

Valentino clutch and shoes: we’ve seen these everywhere in Asia but doesn’t mean we are sick of seeing it….IMG_1024

Karl Lagerfield clutch by Yazbukey: IMG_1025

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):IMG_1026Palm tree clutch by Edie Parker: loving the mother of pearl! IMG_1036

Dolce & Gabbana floral skirt: This brand is simply killing it right now (if you love florals!)IMG_1037
