July 31, 2013 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

The showbiz world is buzzing, the crowd is cheering…W Hong Kong’s final wave of 5th anniversary celebrations is here! With famous designer Six Lee’s limited edition W Anniversary T-shirt, exclusive mixtapes by resident DJs and the party bash livestream on August 8, W starlets, here’s the best time for you to shine! 

BIRTHDAY SURPRISE – SIX LEE’s W ANNIVERSARY T-SHIRT

W fans can now own a designer piece of their beloved hotel as fashion guru, Six Lee, has come up with a limited edition W Anniversary T-shirt that stylishly portrays what the hotel is – chic and energetic.

Founder of the brand SIXLEE and former designer of Alexander McQueen menswear team, Six Lee, uses his signature clean cuts and sharp lines to create a unique silhouette for the W. Inspired by optical illusions and typical sweater detail, the talented designer uses two different kinds of textiles (shiny and matt) to create a W in the neckline. To further highlight W’s vibrant personality, neon yellow is used for the neckline to make the shirt standout even more.

As for the body, a special fabric – Heavy Weight Europe Imported cotton Jersey is used as the main material. This amazing textile not only adds volume to the shirt, it is also very comfortable to wear.

Six Lee explains the design inspirations behind his masterpiece. “WORK HARD, PLAY HARD is what that pops up in my mind when I think of W Hong Kong. The hotel is full of creativity and fun and offers great services, so it was with this in mind, I created this piece that can be worn casually or formally. And of course, it would not be W if there’s nothing unconventional, and since the hotel’s all about flirting with the senses, I believe this special neckline will definitely live up to such statement.” Check out his website www.sixlee.be to know more about him.

This limited edition Anniversary T-Shirt will be available for sale at W OVO Store in W Hong Kong starting from August. Retail price at HK$555

BIRTHDAY PLAYLIST – SPEICALLY CREATED BY RESIDENT DJs

On W Hong Kong’s big day, music will play a big part, since it’s the music that brings such energy to the hotel experience. For this reason Artistic Director, Angus Wong, recruited three of the city’s premium DJs –Parvenu, Kenji Hidaka and Andrew Hendley – to celebrate this significant occasion!

Formed by Damian Boylan and Jonathan Daltrey, the British artistic duo Parvenu’s avant-garde and UK-influenced sound with bass-heavy grooves and effected vocal samples will surely keep the dance floor packed and electrified. The rising star from Japan, Kenji Hidaka, who has performed at the world-renowned music festival Clockenflap, will be bringing forth his nostalgic style of music to reconnect with the audience through forgotten treasures from the past with modern discotheque vibe. American Model/DJ Andrew Hendley on the other hand gives off a deep and melodic style with uplifting techno to his music. Together with his extensive experience in famous clubs like Volar and JB Lounge, a fun music spree is guaranteed with Andrew.

Parvenu, Kenji Hidaka and Andrew Hendley will also be running for the 3rd W Hotels & Burn Studios DJ Lab.   Mentored by W Hotels Global Music Director, Michaelangelo L’Aqua along with industry experts, iconic DJ/Producers White Shadow, James Lavelle and Gabriel Rene at a weeklong DJ ‘boot camp’ at W Bangkok and W Retreat Koh Samui in September, this program has nourished many talented DJs to make their music skills excel further.  Now DJs-to-be can join the league as the upcoming DJ Lab will soon be open for enrollment on July 30 here: mix.dj/djlab2013.

To ramp it up for our 5th anniversary, these talented musicians have produced exclusive mixtapes featuring Hong Kong-inspired elements. From the “Ding Ding” sound of the city’s traditional tram, melodic tunes of Chinese opera to transaction sounds of Octopus card and firework explosions, these pieces are perfect representations of Hong Kong’s past and present.

PARVENU shares more about the creative process of their music piece. “Hong Kong itself was the main inspiration! We met on a flight here from London a few years ago, and though we still travel around a lot, Hong Kong has since become our home, our ‘New Life’! The city is awash with noise, but those distinctive noises are what gives Hong Kong it’s unique character and charm. Concept wise, we were inspired by the mixtapes of ‘Flight Facilities’, another DJ/Production duo who we came across when living in Australia. Not only are they great producers; their mixtapes go beyond merely mixing songs, but also incorporate sounds and samples that take you on a journey.”

These one-of-a-kind mixtapes are available for download, free-of-charge. Music lovers, drop by WOOBAR anytime to dance with the beats by these DJs. Mixing it up just got innovative!
