Minki is a collection of designs by Minki Cheng, a graduate from Central Saint Martin. He was born in Hong Kong, and is known for his imaginative of mixing fabrics and textures together.
Below images were taken by me during his presentation for the spring and summer 2019 collection.
The collection was aesthetically colourful, and it gave me a strong retro-vibe with all the stripes and skirts. I especially like the jumper and the dresses. Although the background setting was slightly weird, I honestly enjoyed looking at and taking pictures of every pieces.
You might be wondering if there’s a typo in my title, but no, this post is indeed about London Fashion Week that happened almost a year ago.
The thing is, with what happened in my blog (long story short, I’ve unfortunately lost ALL of my previous posts), I can’t recall if I’d written this post yet or not. Honestly, I can’t remember anything this day. Maybe I am getting old.
Anyway, if I’d written about this event previously, I thought I should just restore it here again as my first fashion post in this blog. A year back is probably the maximum I shouldrecap for fashion related. Longer than that would be unnecessary, wouldn’t it?
I’d received about three invitations for that season, but because I was unwell at the time, I only managed to go to one event (due to different days and places).
The only one that I went to was Minki, by the designer Minki Cheng. It was on Sunday, 16th September 2018. You may look at more pictures that I took during the presentation of his SS19 collection, here (just had to make a post of its own).
After Minki’s presentation, I headed down to Dover Street while Victoria Beckham’s show was going on at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac – next to her flagship store. I had nothing to do at the time, so I went there to hunt for some street fashion.
Not long after, David Beckham and his children came out. But due to my fangirling shock (shamelessly had to admit), my pictures of them turned out very disappointingly blurry. Oh, well.
I used to cut out Victoria Beckham’s outfits and styles from the magazines back then. I adored her fashion sense, but I had to say, my favouritism towards her upon seeing her in real life for the first time that day had been totally revised. Personality wise, she’s not as admirable as I wanted to think of her. Sadly. Fashion wise though, she’s still there amongst my favourites. Her minimalist style had always won me over.
I’ve had few hours left while waiting for Dad to pick me up, so I walked towards Regent’s Street. Every time I saw Burberry flagship store, I just had to make a visit. It is my favourite brand after all.
At that time, the store was having a newly re-imagined concept and I remember having an unsure thoughts about the new logo and designs, as Riccardo Tisci became the new creative director of Burberry. He had seem to be making a whole lot of changes to the brand, but I was yet to see more of his collection then.
The store at the time was also having an installation by a British artist, Graham Hudson called Sisyphus Reclined – an architectural scaffold in the middle of the store, towering up to three stories nearly reaching up the ceiling.
Above picture was me at the top of the scaffold, standing at the centre of 80 (yes, eighty) cameras that could capture me in 3D and be made into a Styrofoam sculpture by a robot on the ground level.
Despite my fever, I had a great time touring around the “new” store thanks to one of the staff, Alex.
My OOTD: White shirt from Muji, Checkered palazzo pants from Yesstyle, black coat (mine is called masculine and seems to be out of stock) from Zara, shoes from Converse.
