I have only been to Shanghai for a personal holiday once. 80% of the time, it’s for work. The beautiful thing about this is, I somehow see Shanghai in a slightly different light each and every single time I am there. Perhaps it’s the area I’m staying in, perhaps it’s the company, and perhaps, it’s the season and the mood I’m in.
There was a certain artsy vibe this time round. A vibe of creativity, imagination and endless possibilities. There was a free spirit in the air that felt as though your individual expression was simply: You being you.
I love it that Bottega Veneta celebrates the unique individual and that fearless spirit to express themselves. I believe we all need to celebrate this notion. I want to be the empowered woman living life as I want to, fearless, confident, always a step ahead of others.
This motto speaks volumes. I was just thinking about how lyrical I can be about this, but honestly, there isn’t any need to. You build up your name and not depend on it to define you. Initials are indeed enough.
Here’s a look at some of the pieces at the FW 2018 collection. Would you Lounge or Live it Up? Or both?
