With an excellent theme of “Camp”, the looks of the 2019 MET Gala were breathtaking to say the least. One of our favorites at Scout HK, was Lupita Nyong'o. Lupita looked beyond stunning in her rainbow ensemble by Versace. The gown was maximized with hard to a miss rainbow ruffle shoulder collar . She accessorized with a matching rainbow colored fan. Her makeup followed the rainbow theme with a dark lip and a glittery cut crease. She finished the look with a halo of golden Afro picks in her hair. Overall she looked like a rainbow piece of beautiful art across the pink carpeted MET steps. We could not help but think to our rainbow jewelry collection by AREA STARS. From earrings, to bracelets, to necklaces, Area Stars has all your needs to channel your inner Lupita Nyong'o and dazzle head to toe in rainbow.

Last Night the pre gala dinner took place and Gaga turned heads in her ensemble. She wore a Marc Jacobs 2019 runway mini black and white striped layered ruffles over the top dress. Along side with a black headpiece, dramatic makeup, and a teeny baby micro purse.

The year is 2019, and the days of animal furs are behind us in big ways. Big fashion houses like Gucci, Michael Kors,Maison Margiela, Versace, Stella McCartney,Giorgio Armani, and Furla have said goodbye to using real fur in their fashions. The legendary Donatella Versace was even quoted on the topic saying ““Fur? I am out of that.” To go with Donatella’s theme of quitting fur, Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele talked on the subject ,”..You need to decide...And at the end,I thought, it’s like when you have to stop smoking. You know that it is something that is not good for you, but you love it. But it’s not good. So at the end, you just have to take your box of cigarettes and throw it in the bin, and that’s it because after, you feel much better.” As an industry we are accustomed to seeing real animal furs on the runway, but with these major steps this generation is changing the way we feel and talk about fur in big ways.
As an earth we are becoming more conscious and responsible for how we are treating animals, humans,fashions and our planet in general. The best part of this faux fur takeover is how beautiful, fun, and fashionable faux fur can be. Especially within Area Stars cold weather accessories lines with faux fur everything from mittens and vests to trapper and baseball hats.
From Miami getaways to Hampton Weekends, sunny days are quickly approaching. Here at Scout HK, we are all about optimizing time and being super versatile while staying fresh and fashion forward. So this week were here to talk about how to go from a day on the beach to a nice dinner with one look. We were inspired by our own personal experiences of being on vacation and having an early reservation, which did not call for the time to style a whole new ensemble. Rather, I opted to keep my AreaStars sundress on and paired with a statement necklace, a couple of bangles, and the perfect pair of wedges to match. Perfectly sunkissed and an instagram perfect resort look without having to change head to toe.
Before you embark on your next adventure, definitely look at Area Stars dress and matching sets to perfect the beach to dinner looks. They offer so many different flowy, fun, and beautifully printed options. Also check out their jewelry lines as well as Loren & Olivia’s and Bella Stone for the perfect accessories and jewelry to dress up the look.
This show was a very emotional one for the fashion industry and the world alike, as we witnessed Karl Lagerfeld’s last showing, as he unfortunately passed away a few weeks prior to the Chanel show on February 19, 2019. Although Karl’s legacy will make a lasting impact on fashion forever, we will feel and miss his talents deeply. The show set off with a moment of silence in remembrance of the man whom had a self professed “contract for life” with Chanel, followed by a voiceover from Karl from a prior Chanel podcast. The models then gracefully walked down a snowy runway. Beautiful garments maximized with black and white tweed floated down the runway. An abundance of over coats with hats were seen. What brought us to an even more emotional stand point, was the jewelry selected to adorn the models. Grand statement beaded earrings and necklaces were seen within several looks. Within our showroom, we have many brands with pieces of earrings, jewelry, and bracelets with similar settings, colors and styles.
Thank You Karl,
XO Scout HK Showroom
Comme des Garçons is one brand to always watch. We look forward every season to seeing what Rei Kawakubo will do with hershow and what sort of message or story will she’ll artistically tell through his fashions. The 2019 Fall Winter Paris runway, was no different. CDG’s line focused on black and silver rubber and textured garments matched with geometric shoulders, over the top ruffles, and slick finishes. Rei Kawakubo casted this show with dark shadows and haunting music to relate it back to one central theme of “a gathering in the shadows”, as a wake up call to the horrors within the world, uniting a very crucial message through stunning garments. We applaud Rei Kawakubo for both her message and her fashions. As it was stated “Many small shadows come together to make one powerful thing,” which really connects the entire show together in one sentence. At Scout HK we are not only touched by CDG’s message but the colors, shapes, and textures seen within the shadows of this show. Our lines of Area Stars, Loren & Olivia and Bella Stone all focus pieces with texturing, silvers, and geometric shapes
Paris Fashion Week always showcases the most beloved and well known brands and designers .Balenciaga’s Fall/ Winter 19 RTW collection was inspired by Demna Gvasalia’s idea of a Paris street. He went on to state, this regarding his reasoning behind the show’s theme, “My ode to the customer, to people who actually go shopping for fashion. Because of course—this is the reason I do it!”. We love this quote as we feel the same exact way about our customers. We are stunned and pleased with this showing. The construction, draping, and overall refined yet minimalistic silhouettes floated down the runway with complete grace and elegance. Almost every piece had an androgynous and chic vibe around it. What really caught our eyes here at Scout HK, were the simply stunning colors used. Endless shades of reds, and blues strutted down the runway. Within the sea of black in the show, these colors really stood out and resonated with the brands we have at ScoutHK. Blue and Reds can be seen within our new stunning jewelry, and handbags offered by Area Stars, Bell & Fox and many others.
Mara Hoffman, who rebranded her line to be sustainable and eco friendly, which we at Scout HK appreciate as our Area Stars cold weather line is head to toe faux fur. . Mara Hoffman was maximized with the most stunning red color. From dresses, to skirts, to tops, all the way down to coats and prints, showed NYFW that red was here to stay and make a statement. Our brand Bell & Fox has been delivering beautiful red bags that make every outfit fashion forward. Also, Area Stars has countless perfect pieces of jewelry in the most perfect hues of red.
Let’s be honest, Oscar De La Renta always has and always will be known for stunning and perfect colors. Their Fall 2019 RTW ,under Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia followed suit and brought electrifying colors inspired by Mosque- Cathedral in Cordoba Spain down the runway. Hues of vibrant and rusty orange, oxblood red and emerald green floated majestically down the catwalk. Here at Scout HK, we could not help but reference back to our upcoming line from AREA STARS whose color story is loaded with eye catching colors like the red and blues seen in Oscar De La Renta’s showing. The brands and merchandise offered here at the Scout HK showroom not only serves the gold and silver girl, our handbags, clothing, and jewelry serves the girl who loves a pop of color or the perfect accent piece to her all black ensemble.
Believe it or not, It has been over a year since Helmut Lang has shown a runway show. However their NYFW Fall 2019 RTW has brought such a beloved brand back to the runway, under new creative directors Mark Thomas & Thomas Cawson. Not only did the show impress us, it brought us inspiration to one of the colors most dear to our hearts, G O L D. Helmut Lang showed stunning metallic gold mini dresses, and coats in golden hues. As Helmut Lang becomes more innovative, so does AREA STARS. They have created a brand new line of matte gold jewelry, that makes every single person feel like a star.
