If you're like us and couldn't wait to get a close-up look at those Ksubi sunnies debuting on Richard Nicoll's Spring 2012 runway, then look no further: they're here! Cool new eyewear is one of the most important things that we look out for at the start of each Spring and these babies certainly do not disappoint! Ksubi and Nicoll have collaborated several times in the past and we've loved all of their previous pieces, so we're so happy to see this fruitful relationship continuing next summer. The styles below are such perfect modern interpretations of the quintessential wayfarer and cat-eye shapes; we love how Ksubi and Nicoll updated these classics with metallic silver accents. They're set for release in March 2012; we'll be first in line, see you there!

ELLE Hong Kong's lovely Senior Fashion Editor, Winnie Wan, has been attending the shows at Milan Fashion Week dressed stylishly in some great Fall 2011 pieces. She's been snapped by InStyle online wearing retro-inspired shades and a perfect pair of distressed jeans from Ksubi, as well as a pair of loose printed pants from sass & bide. While we love seeing all the top editors from around the world such as Anna Dello Russo, Miroslava Duma and Carine Roitfeld dressed in over-the-top outfits straight off the runway, Hong Kong's very own Winnie is a breath of fresh air in her less-extravagent paired-back looks that we can't wait to emulate ourselves!

We here at Electric sekki have been extremely lucky and grateful to have recently been featured in two of our favourite online publications: WGSN and AsiaTatler.com. Firstly, this very blog was featured as one of WGSN's blogs to watch in Hong Kong, alongside our good friends Cindiddy, The Wanderlister+, Judy Ip and Carmen Chan. Having just started the blog earlier this year in March, it is a great honour to be featured alongside these fantastic blogs that we read every day! Here's a big thank you to all of our readers; we love you all and really appreciate the support!
Our second bit of juicy press is that we were also featured as a Top Design Office by AsiaTatler.com. Amiee Squires-Wills, Electric sekki's very own Managing Director, came up with the design concept of our new showroom in the fashion hub of Wong Chuk Hang and, with the help of design firm inProjects, Electric sekki's super-slick new space opened in February this year. It is a joy coming to work in such a beautiful office each day; we gave you a tour of our showroom when we first opened, so make sure you check it out again here!

As the fashion cycle spins faster and faster, the pressure to forecast upcoming trends immediately is becoming increasingly immense; hence we bring you our first edition of S/S '12 Trendspotting. In this first instalment, we draw your attention to head-to-toe prints. This has been a huge trend so far for next summer, and it's been done in everything from floral prints, to polka-dots, to stripes, to plaid and beyond; the sky's the limit! As we know this can be a tricky trend to grasp, we've given you fair warning to prepare yourself for what's the come next spring! Start working up the courage to rock these full-on prints, people, because trust us it's going to be huge.
