Recently I met another uber talented Melbourne-based designer, Sonya Kraan. Her tailored and structural silhouettes caught my eyes at The Spirit of the Black Dress. I was overjoyed when she allowed me to borrow pieces to style for a photo-shoot last week. Sonya’s pieces have transformability. They transform the wearer, ingenious tailoring that only highlight the best assets, and they themselves are transformable. Take this bolero jacket for example, it is actually a PART of a trench!

I’ve been detoxing my wardrobe lately and have re-acquainted with many pieces. This golden top is an abandoned child of 7 years. Only today did I take it out for some vitamin D. I wore these mens tuxedo pants 2 years ago at LMFF where I cuffed them (similar styles here), but now this length which provides an optical illusion of sans shoes has even greater appeal. What about you? How have you been re-styled pieces you are reluctant to let go?

最近当我在清理我的衣柜(其实是间衣房)时,找到了几件老朋友。这件金色的上衣已经伴随了我七年但直到今天我才刚带她出来兜风。二年前在墨尔本服装节我穿了这条男装晚礼裤(相似款式在这里),但最近我好喜欢超长的裤腿款式,根本不需要为鞋子操心。 你呢?你会不会也用不同方法搭配一些不愿意抛弃的衣服?

Where: In a Primary School

Wear: Sonya Kraan jacket, Cue top, Chloé necklace, vintage neck-tie, clutch, shades and pants, Midas shoes, and plenty of SPF!

As you can see, something has changed on Cecylia.com. We have become BILINGUAL! Many friends have asked me to include a Chinese component so they don’t ‘always have to pull out the dictionary’, so voila! Let’s just hope that they can read my broken Chinese…
