CHIC CHAT with Jennifer Tse
Your Sella bag has a rather bold print. Are you usually drawn to louder bags?
Versatility is very important. My wardrobe is usually quite plain in terms of colour and style, so I like my accessories, shoes and bags to stand out.
What do you think of the Sella bag?
I can dress it up like tonight or dress it down with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
What do you think is the perfect bag?
It's hard to pick a perfect bag. That's why women are happy to spend on handbags. A bag can completely change the vibe of an outfit.
What have you been up to?
I actually just came back from Africa. I took photos of endangered animals. There will be an exhibition to raise awareness of the plight of these animals. There is a misconception that their body parts can be used for medicinal purposes.
LaChapelle’s photos are absolutely gorgeous. The models look like mystical fairies.
