A Style Diary
Eskay W London – One of my favourites brands from the evening. The collection was absolutely stunning and I am looking forward to sharing more about the brand so watch out!
She Said Beauty
So the lovely people from Bloggers Love have invited me to attend the 3 day Blogger Fashion Week event at Penthouse in Leicester Square, London. The first day gave a great range of diverse and up and coming brands in the fashion and accessories industry! The view was pretty spectacular too.
Eskay W London - The designer himself!
Eskay W London had the most versitle and flawless designs, by far my favourite brand at the Blogger event (if i'm allowed to say that). Recently shown at Pure London he creates wearable pieces for women with beautiful collection ready for day or night!
On the New
Using Japanese fabrics, eskay w‘s designs are classic, with a slight twist. The skirt above featured in promo photos for Pure London 2014, a recent fashion trade fair!
The designer behind the brand Eskay W is SK Wong. SK was a total pleasure and so passionate about his designs showing me how they can work for any woman. SK's Verso collection contains designs of reversible pieces such as the items shown above, perfect for work and play. The palette of the Verso collection is very fresh and clean and made from such quality materials including roll-tweed. I love how each piece allows you to change how you wear it whether you simply reverse it completely or roll up the hems and/or sleeves. SK's Autumn/Winter 14/15 collection includes materials that are pleated, wrapped and layered with a muted, yet slightly moodier palette.
Tea with Racheal
Thinking about packing beautiful things to wear for my forthcoming trips, I stumbled across eskay W – named after the fabulous Mr S K Wong and his extraordinary reversible outfits! I’ve never been one to pack light, but think I could be converted by these impressive little numbers. It was a pleasure to meet a designer with such a passion for his art – he really exudes joy when talking about his collections, of which he should rightfully be proud! And thinking forward to Autumn/Winter, eskay W were proudly launching their suitably-titled Darker Hues collection.
Held an Open Evening Event at Wolf and Badger Notting Hill, where the SS14 collection is currently stocked, to showcase the forthcoming AW14 collection, Darker Hues.

Eskay W London
Posted on March 30, 2014 by ingelinmarie
It’s been such a busy, but ridiculously fun, week! We’ve attended Bloggers Fashion Week in London and become familiar with some amazing brands, one of which we’re about to tell you all about. It was basically love at first sight. The beauty, quality, details (and to be honest the perfection) was almost too much to handle. And also the designer SK Wong is probably the loveliest person you’ll ever meet.
Eskay W was formed only last year (2013) and is full of promise. The pieces are timeless classics with a modern twist made in luxurious feeling fabrics, which could just bring tears to our eyes. As if that’s not enough, the true reason we fell in love with Eskay W is the versatility of the pieces. Every piece can easily transition from work to play, and day to night. This is what defines Eskay W; pieces for ‘every woman’ that still brings ‘a touch of couture magic to every day lives’ and the best part; you don’t have to spend a five-figured amount.
So let’s get down to it. Eskay W produces two ready to wear collection each year – and we’ve has a look at both! The S/S 14 collection, VERSO, is a piece of art as it is reversible and effortlessly transforms from a day to evening look.
‘VERSO is a range that has to be worn to be understood; the way it moves, the way the colour flashes marry with the luxury fabrics and of course, its incredible versatility’
The collection combines high, contemporary and vintage fashion at highstreet prices and is pretty much the end of fashion as we know it. Key words: capris, blazers, tweeds, 3D pleats, playful patterns and bow ties.. Enough with the teasing. Here are our favourites from the VERSO collection:
‘Reverse VERSO to fall in love with a new approach to fashion… inside and out’
I have a massive issue with this cocktail dress – the issue being I don’t own it.
This Italian tweed is softer than feathers – I know you want to touch it; go ahead!
I genuinely think this pleated tweed midi skirt is the answer to all of my problems. The pleats are too perfect.
The A/W 14 collection is also a pleasure to the eye with its dark and rich colours. Minimalistic and monochrome pieces inspired by the sultry glamour and feminine sensibility of the 50s woman with diamond shapes, pleats, twists, toiling and draping details making the garments look alive and moving.
The fabrics varies from fine knit, quality cotton and tencel all tailored, layered and draped to create texture, shape and sculpting – both visible and hidden.
‘It is very much about what is concealed as well as what is on show – women are meant to be creatures of mystery after all…’
This top has the most beautiful lining, but no picture did it justice, so you’ll just have to go and see for yourselves when the collection is out!
The pieces can be combined up, down, sideways and diagonally – your imagination is really the limit here. SK Wong is a master of pattern making, and every piece is perfectly cut to fit any woman’s body. The collection is also full of intricate details which will keep you looking at it forever, as there’s always something you haven’t noticed before.
We both fell completely and utterly in love with the A/W 14 black coat. It’s the answer to it all – like, the answer. So we just had to try it on – and it was so beautiful and so, so comfortable!
Can’t wait until November (when ‘Darker Hues’ will be available in store!). I just need to do some money saving during the summer and then this baby will be mine.
Thank you so much to SK Wong for having us, being such a lovely host, and for creating such beautiful clothing! (We can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve for S/S 15. He gave us a few hints – and it’s safe to say we’re very excited)
You can get your hands on his S/S 14 collection now, at Wolf and Badger.
My Little Black Book
Launched in 2013, London College of Fashion graduate SK Wong reinvigorates vintage outlines with an innovative design, both in terms of patterns and fabric, and also the contemporary craftsmanship of every item in the collection.
And most importantly, the collection is characterised by silhouettes that flatter; the Wellinborough tweed skirt (below), for instance, would be perfect for a contemporary, preppy chic office look. Indeed, a personal encounter with the label confirms to me that it’s also lined, meaning it’s perfect for work.
Another favourite of mine from this collection is the reversible Wolverhampton jacket. With its playful interpretation of check patterns, I think it would be perfect with skinny trousers.
