MCM's Newest UK Blogger Ambassador - Kit Lee from Style Slicker



Tell us about yourself & what you do.

My name is Kit Lee, I was born in Northern Ireland to Chinese parents from Hong Kong, and I've lived in London all my life. I worked as a stylist assistant for many years from producing costumes for numerous music videos and luxury publications specialised in high-end fashion and fine jewellery styling such as Financial Times - How To Spend It, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Quintessentially, JFW and many more. I'm now a freelance creative consultant, stylist and photographer as well as running my own fashion and lifestyle blog

Please introduce your site.

Style Slicker is a fashion and lifestyle blog. The blog originally started out as a street style blog back in 2008 before it became a fully fledged visual heavy fashion and lifestyle blog, covering various genres in fashion, beauty, DIY, food, factory visits, travel and beyond.


What is it like to be a fashion blogger?

I've been blogging since 2008 and it's wonderful to see how it evolved so quickly, especially with my photography! I love working from home and the freedom to produce quality content for the blog.


Biggest Pro?

Meeting new people, create your own aesthetic, be very creative, freedom and making your own decisions.

Biggest Con?

Dealing with mild dyslexia, writing and editing can be difficult when I'm under pressure.

What would be a typical day for you?

My schedule is quite flexible and I don't have a fixed routine. When I'm not shooting or having a meeting in town, I would jot down a list of potential projects for the next blog posts such as DIY, outfit, beauty still life, food, or Instagram when I'm feeling lazy.


Where do you find inspiration?

It's everywhere! Pinterest, blogs, friends, Instagram, in my dream on the street, on public transport and my four siblings, they're bloggers too!

What are your techniques on finding inspiration when on a creative drought?

My friends describe me as a visualist or visual thinker so I rarely run out of ideas or inspiration. My technique is quite complex, I tend to lock an idea or inspiration inside my head and let the 'significance' spread like tree branches in a manipulative sequence, and problem solving and strategy processes in my sleeping mode. It's very stimulating and conflicting, my brain often fires up.


How would you describe your style?

My style changes all the time, depending how I feel. I'm very into layering, floral prints, mixing bright colours, 90s grunge, preppy fashion. I'm most comfortable in a men's flannel shirt paired with skinny jeans and oxford brogues which is my normal uniform.


Who would you love to dress?

It is my absolute dream to dress my favourite band, Daft Punk or The Stig from Top Gear.

Are there any designers that inspire you?

I love Hussein Chalayan, Paco Rabbane, Courreges, Yohji Yamamoto - those innovative types, I'll never forget Chalayan's infamous collapsible wooden coffee table skirt from the Fall 2000 collection. Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Valentino, Elie Saab for the classic, romantic and embellishment details.

How do you feel about the lifestyle of travel & global-nomadism?

It is important to discover other unexplored cultures that can be educated and appreciate their existence, which defines the sense of identity of the country and its people. There are many countries I'd love to visit (I haven't been to the States yet) and absorb their culture and lifestyle - food, art, agriculture... so many things!


Do you have a favourite MCM bag?

I love my MCM Nuovo L red tote, it fits my DSLR camera perfectly.

What do you like about MCM & what do you hope to achieve?

I love the design, colour and its rich heritage in travel and lifestyle.  My blog has featured a lot of MCM bags and it has sparked readers attention especially in London. The backpacks are very popular here and I'd love to see more outside London.

In your own words how do you think luxury is a mindset?

Three words: Craftsmanship, Heritage, Lifestyle.
