Hugely Successful Taiwan Fashion Brand MEAT

Looking to Get a Piece of the Hong Kong Style Scene

Already a well-established success in Taiwan and a favourite of Taiwanese celebrities and bloggers, MEAT online fashion brand launches in Hong Kong.

An acronym for “MODERN, ELEGANCE, AFFORDABLE, TENDER”, the founder of MEAT created the name based on her belief that all the products should be an extension of oneself and of one’s ‘skin’. Not only the clothes and accessories comfortable and easy-to-wear, they’re designed with the concept of new collections “building on” items of previous ones. MEAT’s winter season introduced colourful fur pompoms – or “meatballs” which decorated super-soft cashmere sweaters and beanies, and can also be used to accessorise their latest cap collection.

This season’s caps for men, women and children are more than just basic head gear. Available in black, grey, navy and pink, the caps are punctuated with playful and current symbols like the Wi-Fi icon – and even a few cheeky phrases. Fun and funky, the caps have been spotted on Taiwanese celebs and bloggers alike, including singer Jam Hsiao,actress and host of webcast programme Melody瘋時尚, former singer and current radio show host Emi Lee. and the wife of Taiwanese actor (please insert actor’s name), Vicky.

Most popular hats for men & women include; “Alcohol You Later” “WIFI” “zzzz with me”.  Hats for girls include; “zzzzz” in pink.

MEAT is a refreshing concept to build on existing wardrobe pieces, being versatile, interchangeable, multifunctional and customisable all at once. At MEAT, the phrase “Out with the old, in with the new” doesn’t apply!

MEAT delivers to countries worldwide with costs varied according to shipment weight and destination. Coming soon – handcrafted clothing.

TUMI x Orlebar Brown Tote Collection

This summer, TUMI and Orlebar Brown, the British luxury swimwear brand known for its modern, tailored swim shorts and photographic prints, collaborate for the first time to bring innovative and playful weekend totes to their consumers worldwide.

Combining Orlebar Brown’s distinct style with TUMI’s reputation for high quality and performance lifestyle collections, the outcome displays contemporary travel at its best. Drawing constant inspiration from Slim Aarons’ iconic pictures of Riviera and Palm Beach life during the decade, Orlebar Brown and TUMI have re-interpreted the 1960s poolside utopia into an aptly energetic weekend travel assortment.

“It’s easy to draw parallels between OB and TUMI and the quality we produce. We both strive to be best in class with a genuine attention to detail. Our ethos is around celebrating travel and TUMI are experts in this field with a clear commitment to innovation.  It has been a wonderful project,” says Adam Brown, Founder of Orlebar Brown.

This exclusive four-piece tote collection reflects both brands’ approach to summer dressing in navy, khaki, and printed canvas with a coordinating navy interior. Each tote has a waterproof rubber base, making it a perfect companion for a day spent poolside or a weekend at the beach. Additional features include leather carry handles, a strap tuck lock closure, a back slip pocket for the last minute essentials, a hanging luggage tag that has the ability to be monogrammed, and the TUMI owned Add-a-Bag™ strap on back.

“A large part of travel is about relaxation and enjoying the places you’re going. This collaboration is all about the leisure of travel. Sometimes your travels include taking a break from the day-to-day and enjoying it poolside; to us, Orlebar Brown exemplifies that experience and state of mind,” says Victor Sanz, TUMI Creative Director.

The collection will be available in select TUMI stores, as well as TUMI.com and orlebarbrown.com, priced from HK$2,810.

DIOR My Lady Dior Star

A timeless House classic, the Lady Dior bag stands out with its architectural lines, metal charms and cannage motif. This regular and geometric pattern, inspired by the Napoleon III-style chairs on which Christian Dior seated the guests at his shows, has become emblematic. Created in 1995, the Lady Dior is named after Diana, Princess of Wales, nicknamed “Lady Di”, who was never without hers. New materials and colors are available according to the season: classic or refined leathers, powdered shades or vibrant hues. Since 2008, Marion Cotillard has been the bag’s embodiment and muse. The Lady Dior has gone on to become a source of inspiration for the artistic sphere which, since 2011, has been giving its interpretation of the design in the Lady Dior As Seen By exhibitions.

My Lady Dior Star, the newest incarnation of the Lady Dior reinterprets the codes of the original model. It inherits its architecture, its lines, its emblematic cannage pattern. And the new interpretation of My Lady Dior with the new pins system and the brand new set of metal pins. They highlight some of Christian Dior’s codes such as lily-of-the-valley and the star, also with some divinatory symbols or zodiac signs, in soft pastel color.

The bag has been the subject of a meticulous level of care by the skilled craftspeople in the Dior workshops. From the choice of skins through to the topstitching of the cannage motif and the bag’s assembly, each step in the creation of the My Lady Dior is an expression of leatherworking excellence.
With a focus placed on comfort that has seen the addition of a closable flap, the House’s new bag is designed with the woman of today in mind.

Each bag will be sold with three pins of the client’s choice, with further pins available for purchase.

H.D. BUTTERCUP OFFERS TRANSFORMATIVE DESIGN SOLUTIONS WITH JUST ONE PIECE

H.D. Buttercup, California’s best-loved furniture retailer, brings compact design inspiration to Hong Kong with the arrival of a diverse new collection of compelling chairs.

Recognizing the constraints that Hong Kong spaces can put on personalizing a home, the forward-thinking brand offers customers easy solutions for redefining a cozy apartment with just one iconic piece.  
 

The Midj Appelle P Armchair (HK$ 4,300) is a versatile seat that fits seamlessly into homes, offices, and everything in between. Ranging from masculine blacked-out chrome and inky blues to of-the-moment nudes paired with rose gold frames, there is a chic option for any interior. The minimalist design ensures that the impression of roominess is preserved whilst adding not only a comfortable perch, but a hefty pop of design-royalty to a home.

The Precedent Erik Chair (HK$ 14,800) in caramel-hued leather is an accent piece from H.D. Buttercup’s Mid-Century Modern collection, creating the ideal snapshot of a more glamorous era with its beautiful Reynolds caramel leather seat. The French Oak finish of the armrests and legs brings luxury to this retro piece, giving it a contemporary aviation feel to fit any modern day dandy’s pad.

For those looking to add an element of old-school sophistication to their interior, American Leather’s Luxe Chair(HK$ 24,800) is the perfect fit, with its gentlemanly design upholstered in intense flagstaff marina leather in deep blue. True to its name, the Luxe Chair is manufactured in Texas, providing assurance of its quality and skilled construction under the watchful eye of the label’s craftsmen.

With the rise in popularity of loft living, guests can look forward to pieces that recreate that effortless industrial impression. For those looking to find a more eclectic piece to add to their loft-like interiors, look no further than the Tetrad Ellington Chair (HK$ 14,800). This handmade chair is a centerpiece in itself, with its hand-rubbed, full grain, coffee-shade leather seat and hand-hammered brass. Glued, screwed and doweled, the uncompromising construction details also ensure a sturdy finished piece that stands up to Hong Kong humidity.

For a more futuristic look, geometric patterns never disappoint. The perforated leather Guapa P Chair (HK$ 5,500) by Midj creates a deconstructed aesthetic to produce an undeniably eye-catching piece. Do not be fooled by the silhouetted illusion; the intricate molding of the leather lattice provides structure and comfort, making the Guapa P as functional as it is attractive. With light able to pass through the ultra-chic seat, this chair is an ideal selection for a tight space.

Finally, what would any interior be without a welcoming dining suite to complete the heart of the home? The Soli Chairs (HK$ 2,540) by Square Root are thoughtfully designed in both form and function. The Soli Chair comes in a variety of textiles and colors, allowing customers to mix-and-match their own playful curation or opt for a more uniform selection — bold red white and blue seat cushion options herald H.D. Buttercup’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection whilst solid seared oak and neutral alternatives make for a zen dining experience.

Built upon a brass frame for sturdiness and a seared oak backrest for warmth, quirky brass handles on the back of each chair are both as attractive as they are functional.

With H.D. Buttercup’s new chair collection, any interior can be given a new lease on life with one compact piece.  Coupled with the expertise of the experienced in-store staff, any visit to the H.D. Buttercup flagship store will be a delight.
