Not many have the luck to experience life in Hong Kong’s public estates; what architects would call iconic compact architectures living hundreds of thousands of grassroots, who develop communities in their different way.
In an industry over-glorified by many, the endless stream of new collections contribute to nothing more than fads. Rather than fawning over hot looks that retire too fast to remember, real tastemakers are those who see fashion as a mellow brew of aesthetics. Interactions with aged pieces are poetic encounters with real art. And this is what makes Reverie – A Girl Can Dream, a new and very sophisticated vintage boutique in Hong Kong, a pilgrimage destination for fashion lovers.
In the spotlight now is the power of photography, as The Other Hundred, a global initiative to highlight the lives of the humble but significant, unveils its exhibition in Hong Kong later this week. This serves as a counterpoint to the countless rich lists that are constantly making headlines, such as Forbes 100, Bloomberg billionaires, etc. all of which suggest that wealth is the one key to life. The response was overwhelming, with over 12,000 images submitted by amateur and professional photographers from 156 countries. 100 winning photo-stories, which cover 91 countries across 6 continents, will be compiled into a book, and displayed at Pacific Place on October 10-16, 2013.
