I know, I’m a little late but I wanted to say congratulations to Maguelone Calmels the creative genius behind her new brand Mahka.
It was the opening of her store in the beginning of December and upon arrival, what first caught my eye was the striking black steel frames and classic Hong Kong windows. Mag kept most of the original exterior of the shop and up-cycled some of the elements from the old metal door, which her brand “Mahka” was graffitied on and then moulded to fit the service/till area.
The colour palette Mag chose for her unisex collection, was eye candy, a beautiful range colours that faded from blush, khaki green, grey to brown and some pieced featured a combination of prints and embroidery on some of her designs, my favourites being an oversized sweater dress with the sleeve cuffs embroidered and a long dress (which i have to get) with paisley-like embroidery along the waist band.

Not only is Mahka a clothing store, it also has some fabulous artwork, a chair from the 60s that I am so jealous of, Dj set up to liven their upcoming events, or just for a regular Tuesday, Mahka has made it apparent that they are no regular fashion store, but a lifestyle and entertainment hub to watch out for. Check out Hong Kong Community Radio’s Video that featured a live set at Mahka

Mahka is located at 4, Wa Lane, Sheung Wan, just off Hollywood Road (Mahka has a great outdoor area and that they share with an art gallery and famed restaurant La Cantoche)

Congratulations my love, I wish you all the best!!

Pomfret Sarong by Louelle Odié

When I worked as the manager of a fashion label a few years ago the staff were all required to learn how to tie scarves and sarongs in different ways to maximise the uses of this great accessory. You can use it as a headscarf, a bag or turn it into lots of different dress styles. When I got this beautiful Louella Odié Pomfet Sarong, I immediately thought of my favourite top to tie. A total beach look, perfect to wear over your bikini with some denim shorts or long flowy skirt. The back is completely exposed which helps with blistering heat we’ve been experiencing.

Created by a print-making mother and daughter, with a background in fashion came together to create a unique collection of accessories that show their love for the Island life and Hong Kong heritage.

The colours of the Pomfet Sarong are bright and foolproof for summer. A striking yellow with white polka dots and a deep blue in the form of printed fish make this sarong ideal for beach, junks or barbecues.  The size is 100cm x 200cm which makes it an excellent size when it comes to tying dresses, and the feel of the fabric is so luxurious, smooth and silky.
Can we also just take a moment to appreciate the beautiful packaging!
