INSPIRED | Fashion Inspiration from Interiors
INSPIRATION IS EVERYWHERE
We’ve recently found it in nature & the exercise left us wanting to get creative with our clothes again. One of our favorite hotels is the Waterhouse Hotel at the South Bund by Neri & Hu, which was originally a Japanese Army headquarters in the 1930s. We love the juxtaposition we find within the interior of the space. It hosts an intriguing mix of old & new, sleek & rough, masculine & feminine…
MIX & MATCH WITH THE UNEXPECTED
In the lobby of the Waterhouse you can find a seamless combination of things that might not categorically mesh well. We thought about how we can do the same, but through our clothing. Styling your pricier, more quality pieces with your less expensive items, creates a more interesting look & sets you apart from the masses.
For the first look…
INSPIRED BY COLOR
We focused on the sleekness & color of the furniture, we started with an all-black basic base including McQueen harem pants, then layered on a white Margiela vest with red Zara booties & a red snake skin clutch to tie in all the colors.

INSPIRED BY OLD & NEW STYLE
We shifted our focus to the old & new. We took note of the “old” in the exposed brick & concrete, as well as the “new” in the modern furniture. We paired a hoodie & cut-off jeans to emulate the concrete & industrial feel of the location. Then, added a Max Mara camel wrap coat with Chanel booties to mirror the contemporary aspects of the interior.
We’re always looking for new locations which inspire us, where are your favorite interiors in Shanghai? We’d love to hear from YOU!
