Anchor Lai, Oriental Sunday MORE Magazine Fashion Editor & blogger, has greateclectic, unexpected style. She's also a style chameleon, mixing vintage with grunge-y denim one day, and feminine frills and florals the next; no matter what inspires her outfit, one thing always remains constant, and that's the undeniable feeling that she had fun getting dressed that morning. For some people, getting dressed each day becomes just another 'chore', but for Anchor, it seems that her love of fashion is reignited through playing dress up each day. Here are some of our favourite recent looks from Anchor, and don't forget to check out her killer blog for more.

Each year, the British Fashion Council selects several up-and-coming UK-based designers and awards them with their Fashion Forward sponsorship; for 2012, they've selected our very own Henry Holland of House of Holland. Past winners have included the illustrious likes of Richard Nicoll, Christopher Kane and Erdem. Everyone knows how crucial it is for business to show at Fashion Weeks around the world, but not everyone realizes just how expensive it is to put on a show, so sponsorships such as Fashion Forward are crucial to a burgeoning designer's continued success. However, the sponsorship goes beyond just a helpful cash injection; the BFC also acts as a mentor of sorts, providing business guidance and creative encouragement for their Fashion Forward recipients. Henry Hollandis also working with Le Specs for Spring 2012, releasing a super fun attitude-driven range of sunnies. If there's one thing everyone needs in their fashionrepertoire, it's a killer pair of shades, and the Henry Holland for Le Specs range is to die for. Trust! 2012 is shaping up to be an excellent year for Mr Holland.

If there was one piece from sass & bide's Spring 2012 collection that pretty much all of the press and retailers loved the season, it's this delectable pair of multi-coloured, multi-textured shorts. One microtrend that's slowly been making its way into the mainstream is tribal influences. Recently, we've seen boho beaded colourful bags from Thailand on the arms of some of the coolest chicks in town; once relegated to hippies and gypsies around the world, these beaded, sequined, multocoloured pieces are now becoming a mass cultural phenomenon. And who better to translate this trend into clothing than the girls of sass & bide? One of our favourite new bloggers, Tuula from Australia, wears her pair perfectly: a relaxed fit cardigan dresses it down, and minimal accessories make sure that the shorts are the real statement-maker of the outfit. Seriously, ladies, you better grab your pair before they all sell out...

Melanie Huynh, ex- Vogue Paris Fashion Editor and Carine Roitfeld's hand-picked protegee, is a cornerstone of the Parisien street style fashion set. First captured by The Sartorialist during his humble beginnings, amongst the Anna Dello Russos and Sarah Rutsons of the world before they were ever known by their names and only by their impeccable style, Melanie perfectly embodies that nonchalant Parisien je ne sais quoi that women all over the world (often unsuccessfully) try to emulate. Melanie is regularly photographed wearing perfect jeans, hugging her lithe legs as if molded right on her very figure. Ever wonder where they're from? Well, ksubi, of course! Melanie recently admitted to making a mad dash to the ksubi store every time she's in New York to stock up on her favourite denim.
ksubi is available in Hong Kong at I.T & Lane Crawford.
