Death in Paris Vasistas Noir clutch
Keeping it simple and letting black and white (and denim) speak for itself. Also I'm apparently leaning towards the no-face trend at the moment, that way #nomakeup is always debatably accurate. Peace out from B-town.

I found out about the brand LOW CLASSIC through Instagram and was immediately taken. This is exactly what I look for in branding from Asian designers. A departure from the typical kawaii-cutesy style that had become stereotypical of Asian designers, with effortless styling and minimal makeup. Cool without trying. None of that kitty kitty pink shit.

MESHIT top and skirt; Death In Paris Vasistas Blanc clutch; Nike sneakers
I may introduce myself as Chinese but home is still Vienna. I'm wearing an outfit by Viennese brand MESHIT, who've had collections bought by Topshop. They are hip and young, and have the best art direction for their lookbooks. So definitely keep a tab on these BBs.
On another note, Obama is coming to Beijing in November, which apparently means a week of holiday for us.

Wearing: Reiss jacket, top and trousers; BAGGU clutch; MAN choker; Nike sneakers.
When I was in New York, the Reiss team invited me to their showroom and I picked these from their FW14 Collection. The jacket is a perfect fit with strong shoulders, and makes me feel like I can and should achieve more. With Beijing Design Week over, I'm partnering up with my brother Nick again to start on a new project. NEVER STOP, ALWAYS CHILL DUDE.

Beijing Design Week is underway and we're nestled in our hutong space with a lot of green plants, cacti and postcards. Grandma's legit vintage shirt seemed like an appropriate uniform of choice the other day. I'm on the way to becoming a true Beijinger! Maybe not - I still hate queues and crowds.
We're collaborating with Yetang.com and stocking some of their monochrome pieces so come haaaang. If you use 'KNEON' at checkout you can get 30RMB off!

Model, Lola @ Wilhelmina NY

A bit of a throwback from New York when I shot Lola for KNEON in a secret-esque garden wearing the best color palette i.e. color in the miniest dose. Another team was shooting in the same garden space, and the stylist was sassy and loud and was gloating about some fashion show that had taken place there the previous year that he attended. On our way out, he asked Lola: 'So did you model at that show?' Without looking at him, she replied 'Not yet.' And walked off. All the best at NYFW, my girl.

After a 21-year long distance relationship with my homecity, I am finally back. I've never lived in Beijing apart from brief family visits during summers, and I'm tired of sobbing like a creep in the back of the cab on the way to the airport with the driver worryingly checking the rear-view mirror, probably leaving Wechat messages to his bro about the emotional Asian chick in the back.
In a nutshell: THIS WEIRDO IS HOME TO STAY.
