Happy New Year to all!
I'm excited to share this project with you. In late October last year, A Boy Named Sue, Hong Kong's ethical fashion retailer (and my local go-to for all things Ace & Jig) had reached out to collaborate on a few elements for their upcoming festive brunch, a seasonal event to feature their new collection and a handful of this city's creative women.
Hosted on an easy November Saturday morning, in a daylight-filled apartment overlooking a foggy Chai Wan harbour, the six of us met, set up, and settled in: barefoot and dressed in cotton linens, taffetas, and eco-wools, we dived into what was essentially a grown-up dress-up party. Good company, hot teas and fresh coffee in delicate chinaware, fresh fruits from local markets, ceramics collected from travels (and that gold cutlery!), and an immaculate, homecooked Korean-Persian breakfast inspired by Mina's recent travels to Iran ...Can it get any better than this?
Personalised placemats and monogrammed menu cards were created for this event, with brushes, watercolour, and inks on paper.
