From luxury brand Versus Versace to sensational fashion bloggers The Man Repeller, Superga always strikes a chord when it comes to winning partnerships that lead to sell out collection and consequently great sales.
Business aside, it is heartwarming to learn that the footwear brand is also making time and effort to give back to the community with their latest Superga x M'Lop Tapang Collection, featuring 6 one-of-a-kind sneakers bearing creative designs hand drawn by underprivileged children in Cambodia supported by the charity.
The Superga x M’Lop Tapang Charity Collection will be unveiled in Hong Kong at this Saturday's (July 26, 11:00pm till late) BrickArt Jam Event at Brickhouse , during which 3 local artists - Stern, Jason Caldwell and Lazy Beaver – will engage in a live art-battle. The resulting artworks along with the special Superga x M’Lop Tapang Collection will be available for purchase through a silent auction with proceeds going back to M’Lop Tapang Charity to support its on-going efforts in helping underprivileged children in Cambodia.
Interested parties can send their bids and requests to [email protected].
Come and show your support this Saturday if you share the same passion for art, creativity, and charity!
Here are some behind-the-scene images from the making of the special collection. For a more comprehensive of the creative journey, check out the special video here: http://superga.hk/superga-x-mlop-tapang/
Just in case you can't make it to Brickhouse this Saturday, the Superga x M’Lop Tapang Charity Collection will be on display at the Superga Flagship store at Harbour City from August 4 – September 4 ,2014.

We've got our eyes (sorry can't help it!) on these Pierre Hardy creations. Quirky, cool and downright awesome, these shoes are topping our list of must-haves.
Featuring a combination of suede, leather, and calf hair with a sultry eye motif to boot, these gorgeous head turner from the pre-fall collection are simply irresistible! Available in a few different color combination that are equally chic, it is going to be difficult to decide which pair to bring home!
(Did we mention it also comes with a matching clutch?)
They have yet to hit stores in Asia but we know that a few styles will be available at Lane Crawford ifc by mid August.

Summer travel is on our minds on this beautiful Wednesday. While planning for a holiday has never been easier thanks to the Internet, it is often difficult to decide on where to go and what to bring along to a holiday... #firstworldproblem
No advice is better than those coming from an expert traveler one can trust, so we spoke with Fei Chang (Taipei born fashionista who grew up all over the world and now calls Hong Kong home) of xoxoFei to find out what's topping her list of Asian travel destinations, tips on holiday packing, great finds from her recent travels, and why we should all go on a trip with a chef!
ES: What are your top 3 summer destinations in Asia?
Fei: MALDIVES - because it's always a good time to be in paradise. BAGAN, MYANMAR - for a unique, magical experience. And SEOUL, KOREA - everyone knows the food and shopping is great but I also love the overall vibe of the city.
White sandy beach, crystal clear water, exclusive island resorts... what's not to love about Maldives?
A picture is worth a thousand words and "magical" is probably an understatement when it comes to Bagan in Myanmar
The amazing shopping (with shops that stay open nearly 24-hours a day!) and food scene makes Seoul a top Asian destination for a city weekend getaway
ES: It is always a challenge trying to fit everything you need for a holiday. What’s your advice on packing? What are some key essentials to include to cater for any spontaneous activities/occasion that may arise?
Fei: I am a little obsessive about holiday packing, in fact there's a whole section of my closet that is only resort wear to make the packing process easier! I recently wrote about my summer travel essentials on my blog and I think it's important to plan ahead and pack light, because no one wants to stress about a missing dress or be overwhelmed with last minute choices while on vacation. Plan one daytime outfit and one night outfit per day, remembering that separates can be mixed and matched, and items have multiple uses, such as one-piece swimsuits doubling as tops and kaftans doubling as dresses if you bring along a nude slip.
ES: What are some of your favourite purchases from your recent travels?
Fei: I love these wide brimmed hats that I found in random shops in Capri and Positano, I bought a few of them at a go and they're the perfect summer accessory.
Fei: I also love collecting delicate gold jewelry, especially when I'm in Greece and I tend to go slightly overboard.
ES: Which famous person would you want to go on a trip with and why? And where would you want to go?
Fei: Definitely a chef, maybe Mario Batali and we'll go on an indulgent food trip all around Italy and Spain.
Plan a holiday with a fellow chef or foodie and eat like a pro in any city!
