FASH­ION­ABLY OBNOXIOUS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - News -

WARN­ING: if most fash­ion vlog­gers make you want to put your foot through the screen, or wring their in­fan­tile, in­tensely obnoxious lit­tle necks, then the host of this docu-se­ries, Kyle Ng is likely to see you break out in the afore­men­tioned fits of rage.

If you can put his af­fected man­ner aside, this is ac­tu­ally quite in­for­ma­tive TV, in a vastly more an­noy­ing style of David Chang’s food odyssey,

In the first episode, on jeans, Ng trav­els to Japan where style ‘ex­perts’ ar­gue the best denim is hand-dipped and yarn-dyed by crafts­men in a town called Ko­jima. The 18-ounce won­ders have a dis­tinc­tive indigo colour and tex­tured look you’ll recog­nise, which is cre­ated by the shak­ing shut­tle looms; and sell for 80,000 yen, or close to $1000. At that price, they bet­ter iron them­selves.
