All I want for Christmas: Kelly Wong

As a Senior Buyer for Lane Crawford, Kelly Wong travels the world scouring the shows for the best womenswear pieces to be stocked in-store. Kelly herself is always decked out in the best pieces of the season and she regularly documents her outfits through her Instagram account, @blackjelly. Her colleague, @caseycaseycase, takes most of her pictures and the duo has managed to create an impressive archive of lookbook-esque photos documenting Kelly's wardrobe. With her long legs, svelte frame and killer style, it would be easy to mistake Kelly for a model so, of course, her photos are all gorgeous. She also has a natural penchant for black and is rarely seen wearing anything other than it (though we think that she has recently begun wearing more colour, which we love to see on her, too). She may not have a blog, but if you ever need an idea for what to wear in the mornings, a quick glance at Kelly's Instagram feed and you should feel inspired.

Kelly Wong, @blackjelly.

Best gift you've ever given?

Christmas cards that I make myself. I always feel cards mean so much more than gifts, as you can keep them and after a few years when you read them it still always puts a smile on someone's face (it does for me anyways).

DIY-Holiday-Cards-16

Best gift you've ever received?

A Christmas card made by @caseycaseycase; he cut out images and made me a DIY pop-up Christmas card for me. It was the sweetest, coolest thing ever.

Worst gift you've ever given?

Something that I just bought for the sake of giving a gift... A pair of socks? For Secret Santa. No thought put into it; an insincere gift basically.

Worst gift you've ever received?

Secret Santa gifts, because I know the other person was probably also insincere and only getting it for the sake of Secret Santa...

Dream holiday destination?

Maldives. I love the sun and I love the water. I grew up playing a lot of water sports, so by the water and in the sun is where I feel the happiest and the calmest. The Maldives has always looked so amazing in photos; the clear crystal aqua blue water. I went when I was 3 with my parents, not that I remember any of it...

Favorite Christmas carol?

All I Want For Christmas Is You.

Favorite holiday drink?

Dunkin' Donuts Hot Chocolate.

Favorite holiday dish?

Honey roasted bone ham! And marshmallow baked yam! Yum!

All I want for Christmas this year is...

It's a person, but I'd have to kill you if I told you.

What's topping your wish list this Christmas?

A black Saint Laurent Sac du Jour bag. Because I'm not there yet for a black classic Birkin!

saintlaurentbagsdepartementfemininbelledujourbag01__062208300_1506_27032013

Holiday shopping strategy?

Only get something for someone if it's right, and not for the sake of just getting something.

What will you be wearing this Christmas?

What else would @blackjelly wear? All black, of course! Just like they say! I'll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color.

All I want for Christmas: Feiping Chang

One glance at Feiping Chang's Instagram feed and you're bound to be filled with #lifeenvy, for she lives a life that is endlessly glamourous and filled with beautiful things. She's also one of the sweetest girls we know, with a lovely demeanor and friendly attitude. And this girl clearly loves fashion. Not yet in a passive "Oh, that's cute" kind of way, but in a much more active way which has made her an expert on the subject who knows just about everything that's going on. She's so in-tune, in fact, that she's become a style icon in the city. Her impeccable style manages to walk that very fine line between classic sophistication and modern edge with perfection. This is a girl who can rock a gown just as well as she can a pair of denim overalls (and, yes, we've seen her wear both). We can't wait to live vicariously through Fei's wonderfully glamorous life in 2014!

Best gift you've ever given?

A Globetrotter trunk.

Best gift you've ever received?

A custom neon sign made in my boyfriend's own handwriting that says, "Always be mine."

Worst gift you've ever given?

I'm ashamed to admit that in a last minute frenzy I have gifted the ultimate cliché...a photo frame. It was from Tiffany's though!

Worst gift you've ever received?

Probably something that was obviously a regift.

Dream holiday destination?

Iceland.

Favorite Christmas carol?

Not quite a carol, but All I Want For Christmas has got to be the theme song of the season.

All I want for Christmas this year is...

Some inspiration! And another holiday?

What's topping your wish list this Christmas?

The first things that came to mind are the Chanel No.5 bottle plexiglass clutch, a bespoke Anya Hindmarch keepsake box and Diptyque's electric diffuser.

Holiday shopping strategy?

Planning way in advance. I love giving Christmas gifts so if I chance upon what I think someone would like I grab them early on in the year and stock up!

What will you be wearing this Christmas?

I'll be wearing my tartan jacket from the Chanel Scotland collection with everything from leather skirts, jeans to long dresses this Christmas season!

All i want for Christmas: Barney Cheng

Barney Cheng is regarded by many in Hong Kong as the city's first couturier. He established his atelier in 1993 and, since then, has gone on to create countless gorgeous gowns for lucky women all over the world. He was even featured as a guest designer on America's Next Top Model in 2012 when the series travelled to Hong Kong. This year, Electric sekki was lucky enough to work closely with Barney on an exclusive collaboration with Superga. We went to Barney for our Superga DIY project earlier in the year; the style he created for us then was not for sale, but the response to his design was so overwhelming that Superga decided to release a special limited edition capsule collection of Barney's design later in the year. Find out what this creative superstar is doing for the holidays in our All I Want For Christmas Q&A below!

A portrait painting for a bestie.. It ended up taking 3 years to see the end product; I think she has it in storage somewhere in Ap Lei Chau, haha!

Worst gift you've ever received?

A stationary set for my birthday.

Dream holiday destination?

Anywhere with friends and family is good enough for me; thinking next family trip should be to a private island in the Maldives.
