CELINE PRE FALL

Before i left on my trip to berlin, i had a chance to drop by the Celine Eyewear Pre Fall Exhibition.

Celine is definitely one of the brands that are on my top 10 luxury brands, i love what Phoebe Philo has done to the brand, and the new looks she has created, even I own a few items.

Today they were showcasing the new line of eyewear which now includes optical frames, I had the pleasure to share a glass of champagne with Stefania which runs the whole operations.

We chatted about Hong Kong, about staying at the Pennisula and how / when Celine is going to introduce Mens. She told me that the first experience into making a possible hush hush men’s collection is when they experiment with eyewear, and pointed me into the direction of the eyewear and how they are unisex styles.

whats even more special is that celine eyewear now has a revised “Asian Fit” which is made especially for Asians who have a lesser nose bridge area than Europeans or North Americans. Which makes it even more comfortable to wear and its great when brands have this special attention to detail which they have to tailor make eyewear and open new molds of eyewear especially for Asians.

(you can’t see it from this photo but its behind the nose)

and another interesting point to note is now Celine is venturing into the Optical, which means more amazing eyewear for the daytime

collections hit stores end of the year be ready!

 

 

LEFT OFF

Last i left off, i was spending time with my very favorite designer group PAM, Pam is composed of Misha and Shana and now the little one Odette (2 years).

I have known PAM for over 8 years now, i think we first connected thru mutual friends and pretty soon we would hang out everytime they were in town, we would see them in tokyo and europe and it was great.

this was the first time my dog (symba) met the Pam crew and everyone had a great time.

thru the years we have worked on a few collaboration projects, if you recall the coolest one was the PAM x CLOT pizza party reversible jacket (one side being clot silk, the other side being Pam’s pizza print)

Shauna, here shown below, has the biggest project in her life, which is their lovely daughter Odette, very mature, quirky and amazingly cute.

for those who don’t remember we also did a Disney x Clot x Pam t-shirt that was one of my favorites.

as well as this one, i love how its upside down, colors all F^*ED up and out of the ordinary.

Odette loves bearbricks and she is really cute.

Wish the Pam team a safe trip to Paris and see you guys soon,

You can get the T-shirts at our Online Store Here, and you can read more about PAM at their webstore HERE
