Aly & Rachelle
Yin has its yang, action has its reaction, black has its white, and of course Aly has her Rachelle. Hmmm, we hear you say, and just who are Aly & Rachelle? Well, they’re the fictitious identical twins created by fashion designer and creative director Christine Lam to be her muses, models and mood interpreters. Both sophisticated, smart and stylish, Aly has the slightly more edgy, darker persona – sexy and savvy, while Rachelle radiates purity and innocence – feminine and ephemeral.
Having studied at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins and worked with such premium brands as Alexander McQueen and Agent Provocateur, Lam brings a keen eye to detail and craftsmanship to bear on the collection resulting in an eminently wearable and affordable entry level luxury brand that is proving to be the cornerstone wardrobe staple of Hong Kong’s fashnoscenti.
The current collection features tops, trousers and outerwear, plus a veritable blizzard of smashing little cocktail and daywear frocks, not least the drifty velvet and silk organza Adorna, and the clever, ultra-slimming, office-to-dinner must-have Taliyah in black and white. Yin and yang... of course! And don’t fret if you don’t live in Hong Kong, the A&R store is online – ta-dah!
