HVVHQ Current Faves

06 April 2017

Fashion's 'body shapes' can be a headache to navigate and make sense of.

It can feel like there are 'categories' to fit into and many 'rules' to abide by when we want to get dressed.

 

In HVV's approach to Women's fashion, we try not to lose sight of a few things.

1) Diversity. Women exist in all shapes and sizes, they hail from all walks of life and they all have their own concerns and goals.

2) Fashion should be inclusive, expansive and about endless possibilities.

3) At the end of the day, we all want to look and dress how we choose to. We want to express and be our true selves.

 

Understanding the above means that those 'rules' and 'categories' should be taken with a pinch of salt.

At best, they can act as rough guidelines and recommendations for sartorial shortcuts.

At their very worst, they oversimplify things and reject/disregard the natural diversity inherent amongst humans.

 

Below the cut, you'll find a round-up of our current favourites

and very rough sketches of the HVV team's various (female) body shapes (plus 1 dude).

 

You are welcome to use/refer to this visual round-up as you wish

but we'd encourage everyone to dress as they see fit.

At the end of the day, all that matters is that you're happy!

 

#HVVGIRL'S Pelagia Ruched Pantsuit

04 April 2017

Coming up this week at HVV:

fbdr1

 

If you're a fan of our supple Sage Palazzo Pants, you're in luck!

We've brought back the same fabric for our upcoming ruched pantsuit.

 

To bring everyone up to speed (on why this material rocks our world):

1. It's breezy, lightweight and smooth.

2. It keeps us cool in Singapore's equatorial weather (regardless of hemline length).

3. It also manages to keep our legs from freezing in chilly air-conditioned settings (not sure if magical dual ability or simply science).

 

Below the cut, Pelagia's aesthetic is expressed via a simple moodboard.

Close-up details are included too!

TGIF HVVgirls!

If you follow us on @HVV_hq, you'll know we were bitten by the baking bug awhile back.

For the month of April, we're expanding our baking repertoire (and waistlines) with another sweet recipe,

courtesy of our second 'HVVgirlfriends' guest blogger: Vickii Ma.

 

You can try your hand at her favourite recipe - Match Green Tea Lava Cake - below the cut.

(Don't worry, there's an easy-to-follow video too!)

HVV Stylist: Prints & Places

29 March 2017

Sartorially speaking,

a sunny and fun-filled Spring/Summer can be expressed via

a colourful mix of floral and abstract prints.

 

It doesn't matter if you're a minimalist dresser

who's tentatively dipping her feet into a pair of printed trousers

or an intrepid print-evangelist who comes alive in a patterned piece.

 

You can go slow and incorporate (read: celebrate) a well-loved print in small ways

by wearing it with your usual basic/solid-hued pieces.

 

You could also seize the moment and revel in a print that perfectly complements your destination and surroundings.

Prints can also help to mirror your current mood and aspirations for the occasion.

 

Read on for a simple inspirational guide to HVV's prints - for ideas on when and where to wear them.

The Fear Factor (in celebration of International Women's Day 2017)

06 March 2017

Happy International Women's Day HVVgirls!

2017's theme is 'Be Bold for Change' and it calls on everyone to help forge a better working world - a more gender inclusive world.

 

Here at HVV, we like the sound of that a lot.

Striving to be inclusive is essential and complementary to being 'humble' and 'human' (two of our 3Hs).

 It reminds us to be accommodating, understanding and empathetic towards one other;

to recognise and rejoice in all of our similarities and differences, our strengths and weaknesses,

our joys and fears.

 

On occasions like today, inspiring and empowering success stories communicating 'strength' can be found everywhere.

The HVV team, however, would like to celebrate International Women's Day by sharing our deepest fears/phobias instead. 

By doing so, we stand in solidarity with women (and humans) from all walks of life in a shared vulnerability

that reminds us of how we'll always be more alike than we are different.
