Lookbook: Coney Ko
Sustainable jewelry designer Coney Ko loves the art deco style and has found her niche in expressing the art form through her collections. She started out as a clothing designer and slowly transitioned to making accessories as she discovered her passion for detail and material. She currently designs and handcrafts her own collection in her eponymous brand at PMQ.

I fell in love at first sight with the Fly Bag in Japan this winter when I was on vacation. It’s made of Polyester 3M Waterproof material, and although it’s all cloth, the look mimics paper. I usually use it as a clutch because it can match a lot of my outfits.
Genic Eyewear glasses
I came to know about the local Hong Kong brand Genic Eyewear during Fashion Week. They do handmade aesthetic frames which are specially tailored to Asian profiles. As it’s made out of high quality materials, it’s very comfortable. What’s more, it’s in black and gold, which are colors I’ve been wearing a lot this season.
I love this simple watch, which was a gift from a friend bought from an antique store in Hong Kong. There is contrast in its appearance–it’s minimal and sleek in its shape, but the face of the watch is very distinct. It blends the old with the new.
I feel that these toga shoes really show who I am because they’re cool and feminine, just like my personality. It’s black and white in color which makes it very versatile, but isn’t generic because it has finer details like the buckle. I can dress them in a lot of styles: sometimes I’ll wear them if I’m feeling preppy, and sometimes if I’m feeling boyish.
Coney & Co. Peacock necklace
This Peacock necklace is from our latest statement collection. It’s heavily inspired by art deco, and crafted with sodalite gemstone. Aesthetically pleasing things should be timeless, and the Peacock collection is a blend of a futuristic yet vintage style which fits this criteria.
