I recently received a lovely surprise from Feiyue, a sneaker brand that originated from Shanghai in the 1920s, but has been developed since 2006 by a French company.

Interested to find out more about the Feiyue heritage, I had a conversation with a young Shanghainese.

Me: Do you know Feiyue?
Friend: No, who is this person?

I guess if Feiyue is a person, he or she would probably be a freedom loving trend-setter, very at ease with his or her comfortable style choices and is in love with whatever he or she is doing. After all, before its rebranding initiated by French entrepreneur Patrice Bastian in 2005, Feiyue brand was a go-to option for martial arts and athletes in China.

And well, my Shanghainese friend is obviously no athlete or martial arts expert.

Back to shoes, I was thrilled with my new royal blue canvas sneakers and was trying to conjure possible looks in my head. What about matching this pair of casual shoes with my burgeoning collection of dresses?

Like these looks from Chictopia:

Refreshing, isn’t it? It feels anti-fashion in some ways, but so comfortable and confident.

Or take a leaf off Bella’s Book – Kristen Stewart wears her canvas shoes to glamorous events.

I decided to kick-start my self-imposed fashion challenge with something easy – my favourite H&M floral shirt dress vs the canvas sneakers, with guest appearance of my new Rayban aviators that I bought from Bluefly.

I will try out more options and hopefully post more sneakers + dress outfits. Thinking back, besides the new Feiyue’s, I have quite a number sneakers such as the Camper baby pink shoes and Monki high cuts to play with!

上周,本人有幸获得一个意外的惊喜。飞跃亚洲公司以及GoodStuph送来了一个木箱,里头装满了好多法式甜点,还有一双碧蓝色的飞跃帆布鞋,以及亲手写的问候卡,非常细心。大家或许多多少少也知道,飞跃是来自中国上海的运动鞋制造商,在2006年间被一名法国商人收购并从新设计及包装。算是中国与法国文化的完美交融。本人也想让这双新帆布鞋与衣橱里日益增加的连衣裙“交融”一下。参阅网上时尚大人的类似混搭,感觉非常清新,又有些颠覆搭配原理的叛逆。我也跃跃一试,将帆布鞋搭配平日爱穿的H&M碎花连衣裙。虽然是比较保守的选择,应该还算是一个好的开始吧!日后会尝试更多类似的混搭,介绍给大家!
