Sex and the City 2 is out in theaters today and there’s been much talk about Candace Bushnell’s new book, The Carrie Diaries and the movie sequel. We’re super excited that 80%20 and Ce Ce Chin Collection were featured on Good Day LA in a fashion roundup with looks inspired by Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda.
Since 2003, 80%20 and DailyCandy have made a “sweet” match and we truly appreciate all their coverage and their love. Once again they are giving us a nod in their new video segment on NBC, “Locals Dress You Up”. Our very own Ce Ce Chin is spotlighted for the new launch of the The Ce Ce Chin Collection. These shoes will be available at Tani in February (and select styles available at Anthropologie now). Daily Candy describes the shoes as “Coco Chanel meets Pretty in Pink Era Molly Ringwald for cocktails”.
Daily Candy is a global stead fast gem in the world of fashion editorial. On their website one sentence truly explains it all, “DailyCandy is dedicated to helping you live the sweet life”. They have over 3 million subscribers to their daily newsletter and 13 specific city editions.
I’ve returned from my whirlwind “China trip” and finally adjusted back into the New York life ! The pace has been so fast I can hardly keep my 80%20′s on…kidding! If you’ve been following, you know I spent the time in China working hard on my new Ce Ce Chin Collection as well as 80%20. I also stepped in to the Hong Kong post modern “Land of Oz”- so much to look at and explore.
The inspiration from the fashion scene in HK (the most international retail I have even seen- sorry guys, more vast than Tokyo or Europe) easily helped me transition right into free flowing sketching in my design room China.
Literally every part of making a shoe happens in that workspace. From design, to sample making, down to the fittings on actual feet! This process is what keeps me moving forward and enriched as a designer.
80%20 is travel. Perspective and exposure are things we do not take for granted as creative thinkers. Each piece of our lives is photographed through our lens and stored in our memory- the final product shining through in the 80%20 & Ce Ce Chin Collection. Recently Ce Ce Chin our Designer and Creative Director took a trip to Milan Italy to attend MICAM, (very sexy footwear show). Spending time with 80%20’s Italian team was blast- and seeing the brand growing on a global level is of course fabulous. Above Ce Ce shares with you some moments and memories- coming soon to a shoe collection near you.
