Travel | Royal Langkawi Yacht Club | Our Perfect Marina Sunset Part 1

Visual courtesy of the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club

Drifted along amidst that hectic city life that we have always been engulfed in, deep within, we yearn for that getaway, to a place where our heart feels free to explore, to feel, to be much closer to nature - the sun, the sea, the sky, the wind and beyond. That yearning was fulfilled, thanks to the kind arrangement of Adhawk (here) and the courtesy of our gracious host and new found friend, Mr. Tayfun Koksal, the General Manager of the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club (here for more) recently. Yes, our secret little dream was about to come alive. We could not wait but to count down to the days when we could set foot on this piece of paradise on earth. 

Let's set sail and come to Langkawi with us, will you?

Live Stream | The Burberry September 2017 Show

We have always been a fan of Burberry fashion shows for the past two years and it is a known fact that we love this British brand for obvious reasons, if you had followed LUMINNEJ long enough. We love the whole live band performance vibe, how Burberry always supports the local talents via its Burberry acoustic effort, and the Kensington runway setting. We are in fact very humbled that once again, we are chosen by Burberry to collaborate, once again, to live stream the upcoming September 2017 collection show here. 

Having said that, we did find that the last two shows (except the February 2017 one) were not to our total liking, in terms of the collection (just personal preference we would say) and another factor that contributed to the "discomfort" level was how the camera angles and changes of shots, it made it so much harder to enjoy the catwalk due to the rapid quick changes of multiple camera shots, compared to the previous seamless camera change on the long runway at Kensington where each garment were given longer period time of exposure on screen, so one get to observe the specific piece in more details. Perhaps it is just our production background doing the talking here. Anyway, we did enjoy the February 2017 show a lot and LOVE the collection. Here are some of our favourite picks.

We love how Christopher played with layering, knitwear made modern and infused it into a chic way of dressing. The trench coats were superb as always and the incorporation of lace did lend a feminine and sensual feel to the pieces. Loving the colour palette of the collection too. This previous February collection seemed to brought back our old love towards the brand, rekindled that feeling and reminded us why we fell in love with Burberry from the get go. Madly in love, to be exact.

We shall be looking forward to this September show. So check back here again. Live stream starts at 7:00PM UK time on the 16th September 2017 or 2:00AM Malaysian time on the 17th September 2017. Come join us. Claim your front row seats here, lovelies *_^

See you again soon!

With love,

Jo Malone London The Bloomsbury Set | A Taste of Being Artistically Carefree

Fate has it that even though we remembered incorrectly our exact rendezvous time with this enigmatic yet playful British brand called Jo Malone London that very afternoon, it was the hospitality and determination and kind understanding of the Jo Malone London's Malaysia team that kept us going and told ourselves, we have to make it there, no matter, which eventually, we did (fashionably late, unfortunately).

Bobo KL in Bangsar was transformed into a private space filled with that artistic air, the moment we arrived, as if we have stepped into the world of The Bloomsbury Set during the first half of the 20th century English - an influential group of English writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists, the best known members of which included Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, E. M. Forster and Lytton Strachey. Simple yet intriguing, we were definitely there to celebrate an unconventional life through scents, specially designed by Yann Vasnier, Master Perfumer.
