>> It's not often these other days I get to hang out with two girls who also bear the surname of Lau, despite the fact that I have three younger sisters and a throng of cousins. I get drip fed family time throughout the year in little spurts. Basically Christmas, Chinese New Year and possibly a few birthdays are the only times when Lau's get together en masse. Therefore, doing a shoot with cousin and designer Elizabeth Lau and my nearest and dearest younger sis Louisa Lau of Lust & Found was an opportunity I couldn't pass up. Elizabeth has just launched a capsule collection for ASOS taking some of her signature wit knit designs and applying them to slightly more affordable jumpers. You too can have a bubble, express your lovely jubbliness and eyewink with a drop of treacle with these unabashedly cutesy knits. Louisa, Elizabeth and I ran around Shoreditch taking some pictures for ASOS' new iPhone weekly magazine Fashion Up, the irony being that none of us have an iPhone. I had to get the other half to verify that all was well in iPhone land. Elizabeth's jumpers call for nothing but super teethy smiles, lopsided roundabout rides and non-contrived sisterly linked arms. Lau surname not necessary.
