Hong Kong’s weather in August has been temperamental and humid with regular showers, thunderstorms and typhoons. The last fortnight it has poured down most days! This is the perfect weather when you are 31 weeks pregnant and nesting. I have been spending a lot more time at home setting up a nursery and re-arranging the house for when the baby arrives.

Pedder Red is Pedder Group’s in-house brand created by Asia’s leading footwear and accessories specialist, Pedder Group. Combining the latest global trends with high style and accessibility, Pedder Red offers fashion forward, contemporary, eclectic style with individual, confident attitude and comfortable, functional quality.
Pedder Red’s most recent collaboration is with Unistella by E.K. Lab (unistella.com) for the Autumn Winter 2016 collection. Eun Kyung Park, founder of Unistella (“unique shine”), wants to show that manicures and nails can be works of art, and that she’s the nail designer who opened the doors of possibilities for the genre of “nail art”.
Currently, she is in charge of nails for Korean media and magazine photo shoots, advertisement videos for celebrities and models, and creates new trends by collaborating with global brands. She creates nail looks that harmonize fashion and styling trends, and leads the latest crazes for nail art. With her experimental nail designs causing a frenzy at Seoul Fashion Week and on Instagram (@nail_unistella), Eun Kyung Park is famed for her impactful-but-wearable approach to nail art — including her “shattered glass” manicure and most recent “bracelet nails”, inspired by friendship bracelets.
For Pedder Red this season, the “manicure maven” presents an exclusive line of eye-catching nail stickers inspired by the leather-fringe detailing on pumps, flats and sneakers in the AW 2016 collection. “I put the set of Pedder Red AW16 shoes on my bedside table and kept watching them, when I am asleep, even in my dreams, I didn’t want to miss any part of the sketch of the shoe, as I believed if I kept looking at them and sketching every day, something would transpire,” Park explains. “Then one day, the triangle-shaped fringe shoes looked like a long nail. I was inspired from it. I researched the triangle shape and colours, made the fringe and the design of the shoe more graphically and completed the design by adding Unistella’s main color – black. A great nail design was finally created.”
Excited to collaborate with Pedder Red for the first time, the nail icon hopes to inspire her fans and followers with her special release. “I am hoping to inspire others,” she says, “and am really expecting for more nail creations to evolve from the sticker we created.” Celebrities have worked with including top Korean model Irene Kim, Korean actress Lee Da Hae, Singer CL and many Korean girl groups; as well as Aimee Song, Bethany Mota, Melanie Laurent, and Victoria Beckham.
The Pedder Red X Unistella AW16 exclusive nail-art collection is available from September 12, 2016, at Pedder Red and pedderred.com. Available while stocks lasts. Rebecca xx
