Canali Boutique - Pedder Street
“The definition of Hong Kong style changes season by season and week by week,” says Jonathan Yee, fashion director of Hong Kong-based style journal Manifesto. “But tailoring is something that is the bread and butter of menswear style.”
Yee’s own style – classic, precise, but full of youthful, unexpected twists – is a good indication of how Hong Kong menswear has been influenced by the city’s cultural mish-mash of east and west, traditional and modern. For Canali’s Style From… series, he brought his impeccable taste to bear on the Spring Summer 2014 collection, creating three looks from the selection available at Canali’s Hong Kong flagship on Pedder Street, at the heart of the city’s central business district. Tying the three looks together is a single piece – the Kei jacket in a beige linen-wool mix.
