korean streetstyle (click onto the pic to proceed)
http://web.gznet.com/pictime/32/korea-01.htm

im a hongkonger myself, and i tend to think hk style brings a great mixture of foreign influence. well generally for locals, they do a lot of layering, which i think is pretty interesting. but they just never bring much new to the table - nothing very creative. for instance, leggings - they have been a significant part of hk streetstyle for a long time, however what i see is people wearing leggings 24/7, every season. it's just uh.. i dont know. they dont carry many unique, distinguishable style indeed.

while for expats, we tend to be greatly influenced by US or UK styles - but what's special is that we also implement a small mixture of local style. so it's all about the multiculturalism =D

I guess cos those ppl went to a Chanel show so they chose Chanel-mix-Chanel. But it's undenialbe that u can see LV(including loads of fakes) bags everywhere.

Janith, your friends look soooo cute! But generally, I think Hong Kong ppl lack their own style.

It's the problem of the way clothes are sold in HK.........every shop seems to sell the same thing over and over again! It's v. hard to find kind of unique boutiques in HK without going designer.

However, a lot of HK ppl are clever with styling their outfits and some of them do come up with v. original combos. The older crowd also wear avant garde labels like CdG, Margiela and Yohji very well so in that sense, HK'ers are quite fashion forward.

I do wish that vintage clothing was a bigger trend though...... my friends in HK don't seem to 'get' the whole concept of vintage....

im gonna interrupt again but i know. there is no vintage here whatsoever. im a big fan of '60s and '70s fashion so basically what i can do right now is buy sewing patterns online, and build up my own vintage style. kids here dont really understand the theory of the fashion cycle.

^It's such a shame because Hong Kong and China actually has a wonderful source of vintage - European buyers actually go over to HK to buy vintage back to Europe to sell.

Hong Kong women are very well dressed.. but also very label conscious.. seems like Chanel is the prefered label
that's because they were in the the hk chanel show.....
and all the women in the pics r celebrities or stylists

but i do love Hilary Tsui who is wearing Junya Watanabe trench with Balenciaga bag in the pic!

Singapore style is just so boring and repetitive.
It's the usual jeans+tee combo.

Yeah..i guess so too...but i guess because of the weather 32 degrees all the time, that makes them to choose just jeans and tee. When I lived there, thats exactly what I wear most of the time. Kinda boring, really.
