Originally from Beijing, Nina has been in Canada for 5 years. Her wardrobe caught my eye at West Edmonton Mall over the weekend, and it was an absolute pleasure to chat with her! Nina’s wardrobe is a fantastic example of what it means to mix and match in all of the right ways while still remaining true to your personal sense of style. It also introduced me to brands I was not before familiar with; Comme de Garcons is a Japanese brand, and its logo is casually stamped on the white t-shirt she wore from the brand’s PLAY line.
What excited me most about Nina’s outfit was her Alexander McQueen choker, with his name engraved in a coin that hung like a puppy’s tag from a collar. The leather texture and skull charm topped off her outfit in such a way that reminded me so much of Nana Osaki – a creation by Japanese manga author and fashionista Ai Yazawa!
