HKFG EDITION - 
THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER

Fashion Farm Foundation (FFF) continues the successful streak of organising international fashion campaign HKFG (formerly Fashion Guerilla) since 2013 by turning the spotlight on Hong Kong designers in the Paris Fashion Week this season.

 

The creativity of Hong Kong design talent will continue to shine in front of an international audience of buyers and media in the Fashion Week through the special program HKFG Edition. Two homegrown labels PONDER.ER and THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER present their Autumn/Winter 2021 collections in two solo digital presentation in the Paris Fashion Week.

 

About the collection

For the past year, all of us have been forced to stay home for an unusually long period due to the pandemic situation. The “work from home” experience has allowed us to have more time to explore the most familiar place. Yet, this place may also be somewhere we paid the least attention to in the past. It is so easy for us to take it for granted and miss out the fun and loveable parts of it. Giving them time to explore, the Autumn/Winter 2021 collection is inspired by the concept of “home”. Many details are being inspired by the elements of furniture, tiles, pattern, texture and technique etc.

Whipstitches have been applied in different styles, inspired by how the designer’s mother repaired the torn sofa. Highlights include wool short jackets, collar long coats and A-line skirt, all in square patchwork that take references from the sofa chair surface. Houndstooth pattern in cracked surface and furry texture has been used on sailor collar coats and wrapped long skirts, interpreting the texture of the ripped sofa. Also, tile pattern-inspired buttons have also been applied in the designs.

The designers not only got inspired by the elements of the home decoration but also ran through the old photo albums, digging up many interesting family stories. They want to build around classic pieces and transform them with a modern touch. The traditional flare pants are updated with a contemporary and rebellious touch, resembling their fathers’ 90s attire. However, home is a safe haven and a comfort zone. To resemble the atmosphere of “home”, neutral colours of navy, khaki and black are invigorated by brighter tones, such as lemon chiffon, sky blue, antique brass, and quill grey to create the cosiness.

龍圃花園建於一九四八年,位於香港青龍頭,佔地二十英畝。

大宅由李耀祥博士所興建,他深愛妻子,為慶祝結婚五十週年紀念,特意遞請於美國賓夕凡尼亞大學留學的華人建築師朱彬設計金禧閣。

庭園體現中國古典式樣新建築風格,糅合中西文化特色,種植過百種植物,並有依山而建的亭台樓閣,可遠眺青馬大橋。

一九七四年占士邦電影《鐵金剛大戰金槍客》,以及李小龍電影《龍爭虎鬥》亦曾在此取景。

二〇〇六年,古物諮詢委員會將龍圃花園評為二級歷史建築,並形容類似建築在香港甚為罕見。 

龍圃花園現由李耀祥博士兒子李韶博士擁有,交由恩光書院管理,並作為其郊區校園。他希望日後完成父親遺志,開放給香港人參觀。
