AN UN­PRECE­DENTED BYO

The Peak (Singapore) - - Inside Story -

Hav­ing met Cap­i­ta­land’s Chris Chong at numer­ous work events, we de­cided to go with some­thing un­ortho­dox in our cov­er­age of him as our cover per­son­al­ity. We asked him to wear his own clothes for the photo shoot, the re­sult of which you can see in the fol­low­ing pages. We trusted Chong to be dar­ing in his choices, and he was. For the shoot, he bought a mar­ble-pat­terned suit from Hugo Boss, which he rocked on the cover of this is­sue. And in the hefty gar­ment bags he lugged to our stu­dio were el­e­gantly rak­ish pieces from Dior Homme, Dolce & Gab­bana, Sis­ley (“which you don’t hear much of nowa­days”) and Ur­ban Re­vivo (“be­cause smart dress­ing doesn’t have to be ex­pen­sive”). What we saw was a man so com­fort­able with the vi­cis­si­tude of fash­ion that he has made it his own style. No won­der he’s a de­light to set eyes on.
