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!

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.

Days in NYC just walking around and finding oddities in fast food chain interiors and discussing the status of the city as 'the place to be' and chasing after natural light filters. With a bag of outfits and #goodvibez Aimee and I had a long adventurous day where we walked across Brooklyn Bridge and ended up in the west end at a granny's living room blasting hip hop music. Friends met over the internet can become life-long. We've already planned our sassy retirement together in the cafes of Paris.

In between walls of concrete, people and coffee, I've found home in New York City. It's been a month and 12 days and counting and I can see myself living on and on and on here. The speed gets to me though. I feel guilty just taking time out to watch Tarzan :( Anywho, no time for sad emoticons. NYC photodiary coming up next!

A little hashtag throwback from Vienna. I collaborated with incredigurl Nat who illustrated over these photos my sister took. Keywords: Strangle, tentacles, creepy Asian. IRL I would not be wearing this out right now. New York is hot like a sauna on crack. Or a bit too much body oil.
