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!!
Congratulations Maggie on your jewellery line! I had fun shooting these pieces and it didn’t take very long, just a couple of quick changes in Maggie’s own clothes she selected for the shoot and some lipstick changes and we were done! Her chokers are a breathe of fresh air after noticing the obscene amounts of velvet, leather and lace choker straps with dangling embellishments that fast fashion stores are selling, which are usually quite cheap but sometimes make your skin turn a putrid pantone green. M. Stadelmann Studio Jewellery look and feel super luxe, my favourite being the 18K rose gold choker with the side tassels that you can tie however you like. Maggie’s collection online now for purchasing and they are all available in plated 18K gold.

I’ve known Maggie for some time now, although I can’t remember the first time we crossed paths but we kept connected and she was always so lovely and such a cheerful person. Maggie is a well known Hong Kong fashionista who has just started her own accessories line and I was stoked to receive a message from her about being her first season model for the brand, of course I said yes! Her brand: M Stadelmann Studio had 3 gorgeous chokers an 18K rose gold beaded choker, an 18K gold chunky statement necklace and my personal favourite, an 18K rose gold chain choker. She is currently doing an opening promotion so if you like what you see get it soon! Here are some of our behind the scenes snaps…
