electric sekki fw13 press day: trends

We've just wrapped up Electric sekki Fall/Winter 2013 Press Day and it was a wonderful two days where we got to catch up with all of our fashion friends and play a little bit of dress up, as well! Thank you to everyone who came out to say hello; it was a joy to see you all. Each season, Electric sekki curates our own selection of top trends that we love--for Fall/Winter 2013, our trends included the Caped Crusader, the Hitchcock Heroine, the Vampy Vixen, the New Grunge movement, Winter Whites and a Dark Romance. It all sounds super exciting, doesn't it? Have a sneaky peak at our favourite trends this season below and stay tuned on the blog next week for more behind-the-scenes snaps from Electric sekki Fall/Winter 2013 Press Day!

Caped Crusader: Nanushka jacket, Twenty8Twelve bodysuit, Twenty8Twelve leather shorts, TELA necklace.

This trend is all about statement outerwear! Favourites include Nanushka and D.EFECT, who have both come up with some really incredible coats this season. Keep the rest of the look simple to really let your outerwear shine!

Hitchcock Heroine: TELA jacket, No. 21 collar, sass & bide bustier, D.EFECT skirt.

This trend was a favourite of many of our guests. The Hitchcock Heroine is strong, mysterious and womanly. She isn't afraid to be feminine--in fact, she uses her femininity as a weapon! This trend is all about a sharp, classic, empowered woman.

Vampy Vixens: House of Holland top, No. 21 pants, No. 21 belt.

Electric sekki's take on the jewel-tone trend that has swept the runways. Gone are the neons of Summer 2012 and pastels of Summer 2013; Winter 2013 is all about deep, rich jewel tones in emerald, ruby, sapphire and more. The richness of the colours create a gorgeous, luxurious feeling which we love.

Dark Romance: ksubi top, Minkpink skirt, TELA necklace, No, 21 bag.

We all love a Dark Romance! This trend is all about wearing black, but in new ways! It's not a harsh, boring black. No, instead, it's all about the softer, more romantic side of black. For example, we love the embroidery on this black denim top and the cut-out floral details on this skirt.

Winter White: sass & bide skirt, MINKPINK shirt.

White has been a very popular colour this year! And the trend of wearing white from head-to-toe continues through the summer and into winter. Going all-out white creates a really clean and sophisticated look that is perfect for all of you chic and elegant ladies out there!

New Grunge: (Left) Insight 51 jacket, Minkpink bustier, One Teaspoon denim, Something Else shirt at waist. (Right) Insight 51 top, Insight 51 denim, ksubi jacket.

Hedi Slimane did it at Saint Laurent and suddenly, everybody wanted to revisit 90's grunge again! But this season, the grunge look has been updated with a modern touch, adding bejeweled elements and midriff-baring tops into the mix. Crucial to this trend is your denim, which is why we love One Teaspoon's distressed boyfriend-style jean to finish off the look.

Superga Sneakers: It wouldn't be press day without a sprinkling of gorgeous Superga sneakers! These new neon- andsherbet-coloured styles are absolutely delicious!

Havaianas Sandals: Although it's Fall/Winter 2013 press day, let's be honest, it doesn't get cold in Hong Kong until at least December, which is why it's still so important to include Havaianas in the mix! It's safe to say there's no better companion than a pair of Havaianas to get you through the heat of the summer months!
