The last few weeks has been one of many firsts for me – first studio space, first snake soup (yes, really), and first time wearing leather pants. Although most of you will probably have dabbled in leather trouser territory, Hong Kong weather isn’t generally conducive to any sort of animal skin encasing on the legs, which has meant I’ve not had the chance. But the weather has been uncharacteristically cool, and the bare concrete floors in our office aid in that chilliness, which has allowed me to experiment with cold(ish) weather clothes. Let’s just say I’m a fan! Who doesn’t love feeling all slippery like Mick Jagger on any random Tuesday? Although, mental note, must remember to check the temperatures before donning in the morning – knowing me I’ll have one of those awkward, sweaty legged, moments on an uncharacteristically warm March day.
On the subject of leather, I recently got together with Witchery to create a guide to caring for your leather handbag – perfect for keeping that beloved tote in tip top shape from the moment you buy it til, well, forever – because that’s how long a leather bag should last.

These are my favourite new leather pants – they’ve got a touch of stretch in them so they’re super comfy!
