Trend Edit: Neon

Every year, designers showcase their latest designs and forecast the next big trends on the catwalk, which we can incorporate into our own clothing collections. Staying up to date with the latest fashion trends can be hugely important, whether you work in fashion or you simply just like to look current!

At the end of 2018, fashion weeks across the world displayed SS19 collections, giving a nod towards some striking trends. One such style you’ve probably seen before, but it’s here to stay in a big way.

The neon trend was a prevalent feature across the board in last year’s catwalk shows, and it’s not going anywhere just yet. Made popular by the likes of Kim Kardashian, high street fashion and luxury fashion houses, neon can now be seen everywhere. So, are you ready to embrace a brighter colour palette this year?

How to wear neon

Neon can be a daunting shade to adopt, but realistically it’s just brightened versions of your favourite colours. Think lime, lemon, tangerine and fuchsia; these are your basic neon colours and you can play around with them as boldly or subtly as you like.

You may want to consider pairing a neon top or trousers with a muted counterpart and simple accessories to ease your way into this top trend. Recent seasons have featured very neutral colour palettes, so neon could be the perfect way to overhaul your collection for 2019. On the other hand, if you’re feeling brave then go for a head-to-toe ensemble; think neon power suit or dress for a bold statement.

Neon works incredibly well when paired with other key trends. Incorporate the latest designs in one by wearing neon streetwear, or neon snake print. Casual wear in particular can look great in neon, by making something quite simple look extraordinary.

Consider the seasons; neon can work through the year in various guises. Think neon jumpers for the winter, and neon beachwear in the summer.

Neon style inspiration

There are many different ways you can incorporate the neon trend into your clothing collection, from day to night. As mentioned earlier, neon knitwear can work perfectly when paired with your favourite jeans for off-duty, weekend style; likewise, a muted top with neon trousers can create an effortlessly on-trend appearance.

For eveningwear, say goodbye to those jewelled tones of last year and say hello to your favourite bright shades. Royal blue, deep purple and emerald are quickly making way for more vivid hues, and they can easily be worn in the form of a mini, midi or maxi dress. Just remember to accessorise accordingly; simple hair and makeup goes best with this kind of look. Look out for extra enhancements like sequins and prints for something a little more unique.

Of course, for those of you who still aren’t convinced that neon is the way to go this year, why not think on a smaller scale? Handbags and shoes make a perfect way to experiment with the trend, creating a striking look without going over the top!

Mojo Nomad Central

Mojo Nomad Central – a ground-breaking concept designed to turn the traditional hotel model on its head- will open this September on Queens Road Central in the heart of Hong Kong. The property is the second to open from the Mojo Nomad brand, Hong Kong’s first hotel concept with shared working spaces, and a member of the Ovolo Hotels group.

“Following the unprecedented success of Mojo Nomad Aberdeen, on the western shore of Hong Kong Island, we’re excited to unveil a second Mojo Nomad property in Hong Kong, this time in the city’s bustling Central District,” says Girish Jhunjhnuwala, the visionary behind the Mojo Nomad concept, and founder & CEO of Ovolo Hotels. The edgy, design-driven concept draws on the hotelier’s desire to make a difference. “We are giving modern travelers access to a multi-use space where they can be productive, collaborate, seek adventure and experience new things,” continued Girish.

The first of its kind in the region, the Mojo Nomad concept combines a mix of designer rooms, from private to accommodation options for families, groups and friends, paving the way for a new type of value-driven design hospitality. Mojo Nomad’s communal spaces encourage guests to connect with new people and ideas, tapping into a thriving demographic of explorers and addressing the changing demands of the ever-evolving traveler.

The new Mojo Nomad Central offers a total of 56 guest rooms ranging from size S to XL; two of the property’s rooms will offer shared accommodations. Adhering to the brand’s commitment to integrating the latest in technology and design, each room is equipped with multiple USB and traditional plug sockets, as well as international adapters. Shared rooms are fitted with individual televisions and Bluetooth headphone capabilities, as well. A flexible-use space on the property’s second floor will offer a refreshment bar and shared kitchen with additional working and lounge areas. On the third floor, the gym offers TRX equipment, punching bags, yoga mats and more.

A two-story Mexican eatery, Te Quiero Mucho, will serve share-style plates and margaritas alongside a broad selection of artisanal tequilas. The bar, which also serves as the hotel’s reception desk, is decked out with eye-catching neon.

“Our inspirational new hotel collection is designed for those seeking a better way of living. At Mojo Nomad, guests are able to unite around common interests and enjoy a unique style of community living, which values openness and collaboration without compromise. Whether your stay be long or short, you’ll be a part of our community,” concluded Girish.
