Oliver Cheshire and Pixie Lott were pictured at Boujis nightclub on 20th October 2014 in Central London. Oliver Cheshire wore a grey sweatshirt from the upcoming Alexander Wang x H&M collection, scheduled for launch on 6th November 2014. It is interesting to see both the model in the lookbook picture, and Oliver Cheshire opting for an oversized look. The WANG sweatshirt is actually one of my favourite piece from the collection, probably because I am a Wong and the inner Chinese consumer trapped within me really wanted this piece. Love you Oliver Cheshire I do, but not entirely excited about that picture above. So, who is queuing with me on the 6th?

Eddie Redmayne and Kate Mara attended the Alexander Wang x H&M Launch on 16th October 2014 in New York City. Eddie Redmayne wore an Alexander Wang x H&M sweatshirt for the event.
The sweatshirt that Eddie Redmayne wore will retail for £59.99, and available from 6th November 2014 in the UK. I do like some of the pieces from this capsule collection, but prices are notably higher as compared to previous designer collaborations. What are your views on the Alexander Wang x H&M collection? Will you be shopping the collection on launch date?

Jamie Campbell Bower in Dior Homme - 'Arts for Human Rights' Foundation dinner

Matilda Lowther and Jamie Campbell Bower attended the 'Arts for Human Rights' Humanitarian Rights Foundation dinner on 15th October 2014 in London, England. Jamie Campbell Bower wore a pinstriped waistcoat over a white shirt and matching trousers, and accessorised with a polka dot scarf, embroidered leather shoes and hat, all from Dior Homme by Kris Van Assche.

Doesn't Jamie Campbell Bower look stylish? The polka dot silk scarf and matching embroidered leather shoes really pull the style together, and the rolled up sleeves (practical) gave the final look a very nice proportion. Classic black and white shades but done beautifully. The felt hat added a bit of drama, and though I do love it, what exactly is the protocol and etiquette for wearing headwear indoors? #GenuineQuestion

Pharrell Williams in Céline - Paris Street Style

Pharrell Williams was pictured in Paris on 15th October 2014. Pharrell Williams wore a pink cashmere coat from Céline Fall 2014, and accessorised with a multitude of Chanel necklaces and a customised blue hat from Nick Fouquet.

How many guys out there would bravely wear pink and do it with such aplomb? Pink knitwear and socks I certainly do, but a bright pink coat would really be pushing the envelope. Although the boxy pink coat was from a womenswear collection, it actually fitted Pharrell really well. His choice of the quirky accessories certainly made this a standout look. Do you like Pharrell in the pink coat and blue hat? Or too Erykah Badu??

Speaking of his blue Nick Fouquet hat: we had a surprising chance encounter with Pharrell Williams last week. We dropped by Moynat at Mount Street London last week to preview the special range of accessories designed by Pharrell and their design team. In strolled Pharrell and his entourage, and you can imagine how shocked we were. Pharrell dropped by Moynat prior to his concert at the O2 in London to check out the pieces, I believe that was the first time he saw the finished articles for the very first time.

Besides performing in Paris, Pharrell also launched the limited edition Moynat pieces at Colette Paris this week.

Here is the very exclusive Moynat x Pharrell Williams resin train bag / minaudière, retailing for EUR10,000. Yes, can I have one please? We were so star struck that we forgot to ask for a selfie. I complimented on his gorgeous blue felt hat, and he said it is from Nick Fouquet, customised with a series of vintage pins he found on his travels.

Just like the legend of the phoenix. Happiness is the truth.

Thoughts on the new colourway?

William So [苏永康] in Givenchy - Hong Kong Promotional Appearance

William So Wing Hong attended an album promotional activity on 15th October 2014 in Hong Kong. William So wore a Givenchy Fall Winter 2014 basketball court print sweatshirt for the event.

I don't think there is a Givenchy sweatshirt that I do not like. Love the relatively simple print with the tri-coloured cuff on one side. Not entirely feeling William So's complicated styling, I would perhaps lose the sunglasses and leather cuff, and also pull the sleeves down. Sweatshirt love affair aside, it makes me shudder just how these are being priced. You can shop the Givenchy sweatshirt online from Luisa Via Roma:

In celebration of Frieze Art Fair 2014, Alexander McQueen organised a private cocktail party on 13th October 2014 in London, England. Several celebrities and artistes attended the event, including James Righton who DJ'ed for the evening. The Klaxons vocalist and partner to Keira Knightley, wore a zip detail sweatshirt from Alexander McQueen.

British actor Jamie Campbell Bower and his partner Mathilda Lowther were also in attendance. Jamie Campbell Bower wore a black leather jacket with gold zip detailing, and a black / red skull print scarf, both from Alexander McQueen.

Love James Righton's rather laid back look for the evening, but equally in awe of Jamie Campbell Bower's elaborate zip detail biker jacket. Can't go wrong with a little black and gold. Whose style do you prefer at the event? You can shop the pieces online from AlexanderMcQueen.com:
