“Trench coats go with almost everything, so this piece by Uniqlo X Inès de La Fressange is my go-to staple. They also work for Hong Kong’s winters, which are quite mild. The white top is by Theory and skirt is by Zara. I like pleats as they add volume to my look.”

“These Acne Studio shoes are comfortable beyond imagination. And they work really well with wide-legged pants and ankle-length skirts.”

Fashions Kot chooses for work

Kot’s ring is from COS.

“I’ve just moved into a new apartment, so reading A Room of One’s Own feels like the celebration of a new milestone. Working in the art world, it’s also important for me to read the top art magazines such as Flash Art. It’s part of my job to get to know each writer’s style, so reading their writing feels like getting to know a good friend.”

Fashion Kot wears for leisure

“My top is by Ellery, which I love because of the voluminous bell sleeves. The skirt is by Zara. I love its rust colour, which is a natural earthy tone that still feels luxurious.”

“These Balenciaga shoes are minimalistic and chic. Their shape and colour also help to lengthen my legs.”

“One of my favourite perfumes is A Minor by Singaporean brand Code Deco. I’m not a fan of girly, floral scents, so this unisex fragrance works well for me. The Diptyque candle and fabric refresher were house warming gifts from my friends.”
