october is the new september

In the conventional thinking of the publishing industry, September used to be the main event for style. Magazines measured their successes by the depth of the thud their thickest issues of the year made, a tradition that heralded the start of a new fall season. But all that’s changed now as old ideas are being rejected amid the aftershocks of the global pandemic. Do readers really care about the latest trends from the runways when they’ve become accustomed to working from home in their sweatpants? Do we need another best-dressed list in a year when no one went to a party? Well, of course we do. The global apparel industry may be undergoing an enormous reckoning over its part in encouraging harmful stereotypes and environmentally irresponsible consumerism. But style will always play…

trick or treat

Before western confectionery brands like Hershey’s, Cadbury’s and Haribo arrived in the city, Hongkongers in the Sixties and Seventies would head to small, family-owned grocery stores—known in Cantonese as see dor—when a hankering for treats hit. Alongside newspapers and household essentials, these shops specialised in distinctively Asian snacks not only designed to satisfy a sweet tooth but also to treat a variety of medical complaints. While celebrating Halloween this year, why not go all out with a Hong Kong theme? You can’t go wrong with these corner-shop mainstays. 1 WHITE RABBIT This iconic Shanghainese confection is older than the People’s Republic of China. In 1943, a Chinese merchant travelling through Europe tried a milk-flavoured sweet and liked it enough to formulate his own version upon his return home. Those early confections were…

honey, we’re home

A home says a lot about a person. But what does it say about a brand? And what does it say when the brand is us? With travel and large-scale events off the table for the foreseeable future due to the global pandemic, Tatler Hong Kong and The Upper House joined forces this summer to create an intimate space for people who embody power, influence and style to retreat to and feel inspired. Since July, cover stars and feature subjects from the pages of the magazine have come to life in events, exhibitions and provocative panel discussions held at the Penthouse at The Upper House, where a 1,960-square-foot suite has been transformed into the ultimate VVIP lifestyle venue, Tatler House Hong Kong. Tatler House is, in the words of Tatler Asia CEO,…

she’s out of this world

Ten women gathered at Tatler House on the first Friday of September to take part in the second Front & Female Roundtable, celebrating the rollercoaster life story of special guest Maye Musk, the supermodel, dietician and newly minted best selling author. Musk, in a silver jacket (her eldest son Elon would approve), greeted the room via Zoom, her trademark cheer and infectious positivity seeming to evaporate the 15-hour time difference between her Los Angeles home and Hong Kong. Unlike the riotous energy of the first Front & Female Roundtable, held in July with rocker Josie Ho, the second was a more focused affair with a breakfast-time scheduling. Parenting, ageing and overcoming life’s obstacles were among the topics tackled as the mother-of-three shared the same candid and can-do approach with the room of…
