1 / 7

How do you decide what to wear for the day?

January So: It depends on how my body/mind wants to portray herself on that particular day. Be it reserved, fun or wild, I don’t plan it beforehand or force anything to happen. I basically let my inner style flow through.

Aaron Chin: No, I don’t really plan ahead. It really depends on what I’m doing for the day. I’d wear a dark suit if there are important client meetings which call for something more formal. Otherwise I’d stick to the routine basic outfit.

How would you describe your collections so far?

JS: My wardrobe has one side full of cold, monotone colour series, and another that is full of warm and bright tones.

AC: Transitional. I’m in the process of going “Marie Kondo” on my wardrobe and decluttering and picking out garments that don’t serve me anymore and donating them.

What is your ideal outfit?

JS: Anything you wear that’s not following any trends or prevailing thoughts on what’s good. Staying true to your own self.

AC: A black half-turtleneck sweatshirt, black Rick Owens drop-crotch pants, and a pair of sneakers. I almost wear that everyday.

What's a fashion trend you dislike?

JS: Any trend that doesn’t stand the test of time.

AC: Dressing head-to-toe in designer clothing emblazoned with loud logos all over.

What are your go-to accessories?

JS: Pearl earrings. My very first accessory that I bought for myself was a pair of pearl earrings and I love them to this day.

AC: I’d pick watches but I find myself leaving them at home these days. The only accessory I still have on me is probably my earring.
