Walk barefoot and plant your feet on Mother Earth. Awaken your sense of awe and offer gratitude.
Thank you to all our friends and family who came to our 10 year anniversary celebration & Autumn Winter 19 collection launch, Vida! niin was proud to showcase its newest Vida Collection on Thursday 5th December at the refined and evolved new fine-dining restaurant, Nectar.
niin’s 10-year Anniversary campaign features new mother, model and actress, Gaile Lok (whose son was born the same day as designer Jeanine Hsu’s twins earlier this year), model Stacy Baranova (a twin herself) and returning niin model Rosemary Vandenbroucke (also now a mother to son Hendrix).
The Vida Collection, literally meaning life in Portuguese, was inspired by the cork forests of Comporta, Portugal. To honour the elements of life, the Vida Collection expresses a desire to return to that balance: to honour where we have come from, rediscover who we really are, and align ourselves once more with the source of life and the power of nature.
During the evening event, guests were served plant-based canapes and fresh drinks from Nectar (former GrassRoots pantry), beer sponsored by Peroni and Rose wine by Indian Summer.
Founder & Creative Director, Jeanine Hsu gave a speech that night about the last 10 years on creating the brand, and how the brand has evolved in the past decade. A brief meditation session was led by Yvonne Li - who along with being a crystal healer, also organised the Be love Festival in support of the current HK happenings and need to unify as one.
