Earlier this year, Electric sekki proudly partnered up with 10 of Hong Kong's most inspirational creatives for our annual Les Artistes initiative. We worked with talented upcoming Hong Kong photographer, Dicky Manana, to shoot 10 bright young things who work closely with the fashion industry. The bright colours, prints and textiles of 2012 inspired a comic-book style Industry Strikes Back! photo shoot and video, where each artist involved was depicted as a superhero sent to save the world for the darkness of bordom and ennui.
It was an honor to work with so many talented, cool people, all working together on this fantastic creative endeavor. Hong Kong is most often referred to as a financial paradise, filled with commercial opportunities and financial gain, but it's also full of wonderfully creative-driven people who are striving for innovation and pushing the boundaries of our imaginations each day. See our Les Artistes: The Industry Strikes Back! superheros, shot by HKHQ.tv, below.
Les Artistes: The Industry Strikes Back! features DJs Allan Ho and Ivan Sit of High Tech Orchestra, fashion stylistCheryl Leung, photographer Dicky Manana, Lane Crawford buyers Kelly Wong and Charles Lo, Electric sekki Brand Stylist KK Kwong, I.T Merchandise Manager Tracey Cheng, Buzz Concepts PR & Marketing Manager Francisco Ricafort and Konzepp Style Curator Juan-Carlos Aquino.

Thisbreezyglitter spot embellished halter-neck dress from sass & bide is victorious in more ways than one. Not only does the dress look positively victorious on 4th And Bleeker blogger-come-model/photographer/stylist Alexandra Spencer, it's also called the 'Meaning of Victory' dress, too. These photos of Alexandra in the woods of Boston are so sublime we almost don't believe they're real; with Alexandra'sotherworldlynymph-like features, the mystical glow of the forrest, and the ethereal drapery of the dress, these photos are victorious in every sense of the word.
sass & bide is currently available in Hong Kong at Harvey Nichols, I.T and Little Black Dress.

Tomorrow evening, we'll be celebrating our Les Artistes II: The Industry Strikes Back! project in style; our annual Les Artistes project is a celebration of upcoming creative talent in Asia. It is our way of showing support and appreciation for those warriors who are fighting to keep innovation and courage alive in the Asian creative scene. This year, we're presenting ten artistes who we see as creative superheros: The Crawford Crew, Super Stylist, The IT Hunter, The Sound Warriors, Shadow Ninja, Kaptain Konzepp and Style Fighter. Can you guess who each of them are? We'll be revealing their identities each day next week. Make sure to check in and find out!
In the meantime, check out our first Les Artistes project which was produced last year in collaboration with Daniel Garriga and Elite Photography here.

It's the end of August and that means the end of summer is nearing... and you know what that means? That's right, it means wearing everything quintessentially's ummer' while you still can. For us, one of our mandatory summer staples is undoubtedly cut-off denim. Sure, some people love it so much they even wear tights underneath and pass them off as winter-wear in cooler months. But, seriously, it just doesn't look as good, and you know it. So embrace this warm weather while we still have it and wear those cut-offs while you still can! And, in case you're wondering, our absolute favourites come courtesy of One Teaspoon and ksubi, but you probably already knew that.
One Teaspoon is available in Hong Kong exclusively at I.T
ksubi is available in Hong Kong at I.T and LAB CONCEPT.
