Havin' a bubble with Elizabeth Lau

20 October 2012

Elizabeth Lau is probably the only designer whose exhibition stand is one that I ALWAYS make sure I visit whenever I am in town for London Fashion Week. I opted out of LFW this year so missed our seasonal catch ups but not too long ago, myself, SamKit and Elizabeth all met up for brunch in lovely leafy Notting Hill. That day we introduced the concept of an English breakfast to Sam and since we all have ties to Hong Kong, it naturally came up in conversation too (I'm looking forward to visiting again next year). She was so incredibly generous and I couldn't believe my eyes when she gifted me the Havin' a bubble jumper from her AW11 collection.  Thank you so much E!

Her most recent news is her capsule collection for ASOS which is rather good and available now. Her designs are so popular that they keep appearing in magazines and I can't help but feel a sense of pride whenever I see these features.

I also have a new bag! This Michael Kors bag was bought at Bicester Village and an early birthday present from my parents. It's such a lovely colour and I love that it's a little smarter than my usual bags. Sam told me about her aunt who was once presented with a Michael Kors bag. Rather than equating the initials to the designer, she immediately related it to the Mong Kok in Hong Kong which is also known as MK. It's an area well known for it's thriving markets, street food and being densely populated, a slightly different connotation compared to MK for Michael Kors! Now I can't stop thinking of that comparison either.

  29. what an adorable sweater! It looks really good on you. I'm trying to wear more sweaters, but it never looks right on me :( Oh, I've been wondering if I should get a MK laptop bag, but it's a bit too big. I like the one you have, it looks perfect, not too big and not too small.
