#BrandCap: Reike Nen

Korean Fashion Blogger Mia Liamani Seongsu Reike Nen Brand

After having a long-time internet crush on this brand, I finally got to see Reike Nen shoes in person. Founded in 2010 by Rei Yoon Hongmi, their 3-person team designs must-have statement shoes. This Seoul-based brand reinvents classic silhouettes like loafers and ankle boots by playing on angular shapes, texture and adding interesting metal accents.

The shoes which have a velvet finish look extra special thanks to their deep yet vibrant colors. Also, the simple pumps embellished by an angular sole are THE perfect power shoes to kick 2017 in the butt. I'm definitely going to go back for this pair:

Zaful Christmas Wishlist

Sleepwear: 1 / 2 
Outerwear: 1 / 2
Bottoms: 1 / 2
Feminine: 1 / 2

With the help of Zaful, I made a little wishlist of my own for the holiday season! The prices are so good, you won't feel guilty spoiling yourself with a little 'From: Me, To: Me'. I included some pajamas in the list, because I've been oddly obsessed with sleepwear these days. Even though you're just lounging around at home, doesn't mean you have to stop looking cute! I also love a good dress, to wear with thick tights in the cold weather, and without when I head on vacation to Indonesia in a few weeks! Super excited. What are your holiday plans?

#BrandCap: SMK - Sandra Meynier Kang

I had the pleasure of meeting up with French designer, Sandra Meynier Kang, whose initials make up the title of her label, SMK. Based in Seoul, it is always particularly uplifting to meet with fellow expats who are doing big things in Korea. 

Since her bright beginnings in 2014, Kang has been an advocate of sustainable and ethical fashion. SMK is a vegan brand which promotes animal protection, local production and using environmentally friendly materials for her pieces. 

The assumption of human superiority leading to the exploitation of animals.

I initially found out about SMK because of her incredibly perfect Lunch Bags. A luxurious take on that which can hold my impressive selection of staple snacks like cheese strings and cookies.. along with maaaybe my wallet and keys. They come in a variety of colours and textures, including metallics, vinyl, velvet, quilted patterns and more. Gotta catch them all!

On that effortless French tip, Sandra's designs are comfortable and feminine. For me, it is as important to buy from responsible brands as it is to shop responsibly. Invest in the clothes you wear day to day, rather than that party dress you'll only get to wear once!

Here's a little throwback from my time in Milan. I actually visited the Fondazione Prada twice, but the second time around, it was closed (boo! note: closed on Tuesdays), so I didn't get to visit the exhibits. During our first visit, we only had enough time to check out Bar Luce, a cafe designed by Wes Anderson. It felt a tad magical for me, since I'm a big fan of his films. When I'm back in Italy, you'll definitely find me here again! If you want to see more of this trip, check out the little vlog I made:
