Style on the Aisles: Art Basel Hong Kong 2014

May 15, 2014
/ /

The opening night of Art Basel in Hong Kong never fails to draw out the most stylish crowds, and this year certainly did not disappoint!  We noticed a few big trends on display at the event, particularly on the women: namely, midi-length skirts, cropped tops, bright colours and sheer materials.  It was nice to see the fashion, design and art crowds mingling together, which brought out an interesting mix of styles.  Though the weather yesterday was almost oppressive with its hot heat and sticky humidity, show-goers made a real effort to dress up as they roamed the halls eyeing all the gorgeous art on display.  Stylecab was there for the third year in a row to capture all of the most stylish attendees for our annual 'Style on the Aisles' feature--see our best-dressed ladies and gentlemen below!
