Exotic beauty, made in Hong Kong

It was this time last year that we started to notice the slowly creeping roots of an oriental fashion trend. It’s been lingering around the edges, but hasn’t quite broken out in full force. We don’t expect that to change this year, but it’s an influence of the exotic we’ll be keeping an eye on – particularly as 1920s fashion similarly maintains its haze of inspiration over high fashion.

Having just featured La Perla’s latest lingerie collection mixing East and West, it’s timely to also shine a spotlight on Timmothy Lee‘s Made In Hong Kong II – a follow up to the similarly intriguing Made In Hong Kong.

Styling by Vincent Choi is eclectic. Turbans and tassel earrings with floral espadrilles and stockings; an exotic patterned skirt with a satin bomber and sporty sun visor; a peplumed bustier layered over a chunky knit… All these colourful combinations are played against backdrops that celebrate Timmothy Lee’s birthplace of Hong Kong.

Makeup by Hilary Hui, rich red lips and gold lids, adds to the exoticism. You can view all of Timmothy Lee’s (timmothylee.com) shoot at the gallery above.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
