If you've been on social media the past week there is no way that you have missed the incredible hype around the collab between perhaps two of the most iconic brands in our century: Supreme and Louis Vuitton. The two brands are incredibly different, but have combined their own unique aesthetics to create a striking collection that has taken the fashion world by storm. Supreme started off as a small skateboard brand, but has grown into a cult classic during recent year. The iconic, red box logo can be seen on people all over the world, and has become very recognisable. Louis Vuitton on the other hand is one of the most famous luxury brands out there, and is known for its traditional pattern and sought after bags.

When I found out about this collaboration I was incredibly excited since it is something completely new that hasn't really been done before. I find it to be very innovative and exciting, and I can't wait for the collection to be released (rumoured release is in June as of right now). Depending on what price the collection retails for, I will definitely try to get my hands on one of the iconic pieces. The phone cases and the t-shirts are definitely items that I'd love to sport, whereas the bright red duffle bags could be a bit more tricky.

All in all I absolutely love this concept, and I hope to see many similar collaborations in the near future. Hopefully this collaboration will be the foundation for more sick collections. What would be your dream collab? I'd love to see one of the huge luxury fashion houses like Fendi or Prada collaborating with a smaller brand. Let me know in the comments what your thoughts on this collection are and what your dream collab would be!

Dolce & Gabbana had their men's fall 2017 show in Milan a few days ago, and the approach the Italian fashion house used is one for the books. Since last summer, the brand has focused on spreading beyond the traditional runway models, by instead having some of the most influential millennials in 2016 wear and model their clothes. The 2017 men's show was a complete millennial takeover, with many famous faces making an appearance on the runway. The models included Sofia Richie, famous YouTuber Marcus Butler, Brandon Thomas Lee, Luka Sabbat, Lucky Blue Smith, Avan Jogia, Cameron Dallas, and Will Peltz (the list is much longer).

I found the show incredibly interesting, and I believe that the way the brand has shifted their marketing strategy will begin to attract a broader audience because of the broad spectrum the millennial influencers walking in the show fit on. To me, this is also an incredibly positive step forward for the fashion industry, where models of different size, colour and background provide a more realistic vision of the human body. All in all, the show was a lot of fun, and I loved how the brand had added a more edgy twist to some of their clothes, but still kept the intricate patterns, colours and textures unique to the brand. I've recently been getting more into Dolce & Gabbana and their aesthetic, and after this show it has only strengthened the appeal. I'm looking forward to seeing how the brand will continue this millennial takeover, and what impact it will have on the fashion community.

Looking back at the photos I took during my trip to South Africa in December I can't help but wish I could go back immediately. I feel as if the city really connected with me, and I didn't want my time there to end. Cape Town is definitely a city that I could see myself living in. The mixture of nature, adventure, city and nightlife is incredible, and there are always new things to see and explore.

One of my absolute favourite areas of Cape Town was the Bo Kaap district, where the houses have been painted in all the colours of the rainbow. Walking through the streets made me so happy, and the history behind the suburb is also captivating. The contrast it created with the nature and other buildings that surrounded the area is unlike anything I've ever seen before, and it is definitely a place no one should miss when visiting Cape Town.

It is my third day in South Africa, and I am loving every second. We flew to Port Elizabeth from Johannesburg and drove up to Addo Elephant National Park where we had booked a villa for two days. Since we came in early in the morning we decided to take a quick drive through the national park, and in the first 10 minutes we were lucky enough to witness two lion males feasting on a buffalo. We saw a few elephants and a couple of zebras, but decided that we wanted to do a safari tour as well, so the next day we got up early and left for the safari. We started the day in Addo Elephant Park where we saw more than 50 elephants, and got so incredibly close to them as well. After about three hours and lots of animals later, we made our way to another park in Port Elizabeth called Schotia. Schotia is a privately owned park that stretched incredibly far, and here we saw both lions and a white rhino that walked only a meter away from our jeep. The safari experience was beyond incredible, and seeing all the beautiful animals in nature is almost unreal. This trip has only just started, but I know that it is going to be unforgettable.

Christmas is getting closer, and I always find myself in a position where I never know what to buy those I love. I've put together a small gift guide that I often use when buying gifts. A lipstick (This one is from Charlotte Tilbury in the shade Birkin Brown) can never go wrong, especially with so many brands releasing christmas collections etc. There are thousands of shades to choose from, so there's a lot of variety and there is definitely a colour for everyone. Second gift that can never go wrong is a classic perfume. Pictured is the iconic Chanel No. 5, but there are so many fragrances out there that the options are endless. I love receiving perfumes as gifts because I rarely buy them for myself, so it is great getting to try out new scents and discovering new favourites when I receive these as a gift. A scented candle is an easy gift, but it is always appreciated. These come in so many different shapes and sizes, and range from a bargain to incredibly expensive, branded candles like the Diptique candle pictured. Eyeshadow palettes are also great gifts, considering that they are easy to use and easy to find. Socks may seem like a quirky cliché, but I love getting cute and silly socks! They brighten any day! Last but not least is a cozy tea from Kusmi Tea, because who doesn't love tea?

What are your go-to gifts this holiday season?

Fashion, Video, DIY

My first ever YouTube video is up, and has reached more than 600 views. To me, that is absolutely crazy and I've gotten so much positive feedback that I'm excited to create more and more content!

I posted a few pictures of a denim jacket I made a few months ago, in which I used the same method as in the video. I never went in to specifics on how I made it or where I bough the patches, which is why I decided to film my second DIY jacket. I made this one for my sister, and she is loving it! I find the uniqueness that a few patches add to a garment incredibly fun and eye catching, and I'll definitely be patching up some of my other stuff in the near future!

Music

Donald Glover, more commonly referred to as Childish Gambino, has been one of my favourite musicians for a long time. I find his lyrics and artistic approach incredibly captivating, which is why I was beyond excited to hear that he was going to be dropping an album in 2016. The album is called "Awaken, my love!" and just dropped today (December 2nd). I've listened through it twice already and I am absolutely in love. This album is a completely new approach for Gambino, as his previous albums have been more towards rap and hip hop, whereas this album is influenced by almost every single genre and type of music. My favourite thing about this album is that it really showcases his talent, not only as a rapper but as a singer as well. His amazing vocals steal the show in many of the songs, and it is always nice seeing an artist or musician branching out and trying new things.

My favourite songs are "Redbone", "Boogieman", and "Stand Tall". Check out the entire album by clicking HERE , and let me know in the comments what you think about the album!

The weather has been constantly changing here in Hong Kong, which has been great for me since I can finally wear all my hoodies outside without sweating. This weekend I went out for a walk and manage to snap some simple outfit pictures. This outfit really isn't anything special, but it is incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. An all black outfit can never go wrong, and to add a little fun to it I like wearing shoes that stand out and bring the whole look together. These sneakers from Comme Des Garçon are fun and simple, yet make a boring outfit way more exciting.

My Closet

Normally I don't wear a lot of prints or colour, but there are certain pieces that really catch my eye. This t-shirt was made in a campaign by Marc Jacobs to raise awareness for skin cancer. Several celebrities posed naked for the campaign, and the initiative ended up bringing in more than $500,000 for the NYU School of Medicine Interdisciplinary Melanoma Cooperative a Group. Despite this initiative being relatively old, the message and awareness is still of great importance. The slogan "Protect the skin you're in" is something that stands out, and catch people's eye on the street. You'll definitely see me rocking this t-shirt as much as I can.

The evolution of street style throughout the last couple of years is remarkable. The tough, casual wear has always had a presence on the streets through popular skate brands such as Supreme, but has recently made its way to the runway and the fashion world. Brands like Obey, Stussy and Supreme have been around for a long time, but are still turning heads on the street as they have become staple brands in the closet of anyone embodying the style.

Lately the street wear scene has developed immensely, and has made way for new brands to enter the scene. Off-White, Hood by Air, Palace Skateboards, Anti Social Club, Thrasher, only to name a few, have been spotted on celebrities and fashionistas across the world, and it is safe to say that the brands have also gained a larger following through the recognition. One of my favourite up and coming brands is Gosha Rubchinskiy from Russia, who incorporates strong graphics in his pieces. His clothes have been featured in many style reports throughout this year, and has become a very sought after brand.

What I am loving about this style is how diverse and fun it is. I find it incredibly cool that there are so many brands that are dominating the scene, and that most of them are somewhat affordable and accessible if you manage to get your hands on them in time. The drastic growth has undeniably created a hype among fans, which is something that the brands are using to their favour. The limited drops of collections from brands like Anti Social Club makes the items seem a lot more exclusive, despite the affordable price-tag, and I am loving it.

Let me know what your favourite street wear brand is in the comments below!
