Taylor in the amazing crochet lace and neon pink skirt she designed for her mini collection with Lane Crawford.

So last week before the dinner with Taylor Tomasi Hill, I ventured out to Wong Chuk Hang to the Lane Crawford office with Sha, Carmen and Tania to check out the latest LC SS12 collection. On our way there we were SUPER excited cos Taylor Tomasi Hill was gonna be there just moseying around the preview and we were super nervous as to what to say! Good thing me and sha were Prepared Pollys cos the night before we came up with a bunch of questions to ask her so as to avoid the awkward “so….how do you like Hong Kong?” type of situations. I don’t normally get starstruck..like I’ve seen tons of celebrities when I was in New York but was never like “OMGOMGOMGOGMOGMOGMOGMOGM” (except for the one time that Ashley Olsen sat on the table behind us in a cafe once) but otherwise..I rather not draw too much attention whenever I see a celebrity. BUT…this time, when we stepped onto the 30th floor and saw Taylor just moseying around…I was internally going “OMGOGMOGMOMGOGMOGMOGMOMGOGM”. She looks soooo cool and nice in person and is really friendly and approachable which made talking to her ten times easier! We got to spend a couple of minutes with her just asking her some fun questions then took an awesome nerve-wracking am-i-meant-to-put-my-arm-around-her-back group photo! I’ll post the little interview we did with her in my next post just cos it’s not been typed up yet.

So other than meeting TTH for the first time and totally loving her ten times more than we all already do, we were actually there to check out the upcoming collections for Spring Summer 2012. Of course I instantly fell for all the floral prints and amazing accessories! There was so much to take in so below are just some of me and nanz’s favourite picks!

Nanz’s favourite rhomper by TOGA.

Oh man the floral watercolour inky prints from Prabal Gurung are just..amazing.

  1. Wow, so amazing. I’ve absolutely loved reading yours and Tania’s accounts of everything Taylor Tomasi Hill related in HK! The prints in her collection are absolutely lovely, but I think what I enjoy the most out of her collection is that many of the pieces have these very intricate cutout features, whether in the form of mesh or lace or such as in the first photograph out of yours and Sha’s picks; it feels like it makes it that much more fun to layer and wear. Thanks for sharing these great photographs, it definitely sounds like it was an amazing time! (And the tweets are suuuper cute!) xx
