Today and tomorrow, Electric sekki will be working around the clock at The British Fashion Council's London Showrooms presentation; this is the first time they've come to Asia, and this year we're lucky enough to be involved with a group of fiercely talented designers who've been brought to Hong Kong by Li & Fung to present their S/S '12 collections to an exclusively invited set of Asian retailers and press. This group of strong young talent includes Patrick Grant of menswear label E. Tautz; Mary Katranzou, queen of prints; Marios Schwab, king of sexy details; the effortlessly elegant Roksanda Ilincic; Peter Pilotto, champion of draping the female form; master of androgyny, Todd Lynn,and footwear designer extraordinnaire Nicholas Kirkwood. We've spent all weekend setting up, and we're opening our doors at The Space in T-minus 30 minutes. See you there!

Ladies & gentleman, Carrie Cooper is officially in town. Here to present her forthcoming S/S '12 Beau Coops collection and her S/S '12 Beau Coops for Karen Walker collaborationto press and buyers, Carrie Cooper spent all day with us yesterday at Electric sekki. I know, lucky us, right? And if that's not enough to make you jealous, we've got her all to ourselves again today (insert evil laugh here)!Two of our favorite fashion bloggers, Denise from SuperWowOMG and Valerie Soh, also stopped by for a quick chat with Carrie and the chance to check out (and try on) her newest styles. Scroll through to see their favourite picks, as well as gorgeous Denise modeling some stand-out styles!

Beau Coops has collaborated with RTW label, Karen Walker, for a couple seasons now. For S/S '12, Carrie gave Walker's neutral colour palette a pop of brightness with fuchsia trimmings on her shoes.
This is Carrie Cooper's personal pick for her favourite out of her S/S '12 collection. Coincidentally, blogger Valerie Soh also picked it for her favourite. Well, perhaps not so coincidentally: it is a fantastic style.
Denise of SuperWowOMG's favourite style, the Beau 5, released each season in five new materials. We are loving this classic black suede cap toe style for off-duty summer days.

Leighton Meester's Blair Waldorf character on Gossip Girl has become somewhat of a modern style-icon; a sophisticated Upper East Side answer to Carrie Bradshaw's downtown sexy undone look. The character of Serena Van Der Woodsen may have been the obvious choice for a style icon, but it's Blair's elegant and refined look that has cultivated a legion of die-hard fans around the world. Her style has swayed millions of teen and 20-something girls to go preppy-chic, and Peter Som delivers the epitome of this genre of style. On recent episodes of Gossip Girl, Blair wore a stunning nude embroidered georgette dress, as well as a fun ruffled top in a pop of lemon-yellow colour: two looks fit for a real Upper East Side princess.
Peter Som is available at Nicole Boutique in Macau, Spring Fashion in Shanghai, Lotte & Null in Korea.
