>> I haven't moved on up to a swish apartment where I can drink whisky pensively whilst looking at skyscrapers. I'm in Hong Kong at the moment, living it up at Upper House for a few days where I can pretend to be one of those people who would pensively ponder the high life whilst looking at what is a fairly incomparable view of Hong Kong Island. It's my last getaway before the fashion month begins. Getaway meaning not looking at clothes for a while, but then the primary pastime of Hong Kong-ers secondary to eating, drew me in. Steve went to check out The Contemporary Fix at Woodhouse mall in Tsim Tsai Tsui where he can go apeshit over Japanese menswear brands. Around the corner in thisbasement mall spot though is Liger's new location called Oh My God. The name change initially threw me off and I didn't quite realise that the store I had walked into was even part of Liger until co-owner Dorothy walked in purely by coincidence. Just in time to explain that her and Hilary had launched their own in-house label called Oh My God, dropping pieces in that are perfectly in tune with their buy that includes local labels like Creatre de Keis and Plotz. I should have known I had walked into a Liger-owned store as all the Oh My God pieces were definitely signature of Hilary and Dorothy's style combined - easy-to-wear, sportswear influenced but with interesting fabric choices that instantly make the pieces stand out. Quilted sweatshirt dresses with special coatings, neon pvc panels in sweaters, metallic skirts, layers of sheer over neon - come to think of it, pretty much all of the Oh My God pieces were all screaming out to me. Dorothy explained that it's going to be an ongoing and fluid collection with pieces dropping in all the time; a dangerous concept if more visits to Hong Kong occur. They had also collaborated with Hong Kong designer and friend Johanna Ho on a subsidiary strand of the Oh My God line on pieces that make innovative use of ripstock nylon, such as taking this material normally associated with sports and activewear and adding ruffles and girliness to it. This prairie smocked dress in grey nylon is from the Oh My God x Johanna Ho line.
