It's no secret how much we dig Susie Bubble's style; she mixes colour, prints and textures like an Olympic athlete, but always in a way that's somehow perfectly relatable and makes us go, "Amazing! I could totally do that!" Only to then try and not look nearly half has chic as Susie does... Here, she wears a fabulous Something Else by Natalie Wood Polynesian-inspired Kimono-shaped dress, knotted over layers of other fabulous prints. Inspiration! Think I might try this again tomorrow...
Something Else by Natalie Wood is available in Hong Kong at SEIBU, D-Mop, Ztampz & Bauhaus.

Last week, the city was abuzz about Art HK; an annual event which showcases and celebrates the art market in Hong Kong. On Friday, JOYCE and On Pedder, two of the the pioneers of creative, stand-out fashion in Hong Kong, put on their own exhibit of sorts, celebrating controversial costume jeweller, Tom Binns.
Binns is an artist at heart, having been primarily inspired by the spontaneity and irrationality of the Dada movement. These elements of rebellion are certainly visible in his pieces--this is what we love most about him: it's that cheekiness, that sense of anarchy that juxtaposes these beautiful pieces which, at first glance, seem like they should be worn by society ladies but, upon closer inspection, reveals quite the opposite.
The Tom Binns exihibit is on display at JOYCE/On Pedder Queen's Road Central until Sunday, 5 June.

So unless you've been living under a rock recently, you'll know that it's Art HK week in Hong Kong. Everyone around town is buzzing about the creative scene in the city, which we love. We here at Electric sekki have always been firm supporters of the coolest new artists around town; art and fashion have a crucially sacred relationship. One of the greatest events celebrating the marriage of art and fashion is the Tom Binns exhibit curated by Madhouse Contemporary, on show at JOYCE's flagship Central location: the installation will be up until 5 June and, trust, it is worth checking out.
