Life in colour: Susie Lau

London-based fashion blogger Susie Lau, 30, was working in advertising, “and not on the creative side”, when she began to share her obsession for colourful clothing online. Slowly, her Style Bubble blog became a must-read for fashionistas all over the world, who admired her individuality, bravery and forthright opinions.

Last year she was named Colour Ambassador at the inaugural 2013 Dulux Let’s Colour Awards, in recognition of a love of colour that has enabled her to quit the day job to work in fashion full-time.

“I was very surprised to receive it,” she says of the award. “I didn’t expect such a thing to exist. I didn’t set out to be an ambassador for colour: I’m not a designer, my output is a blog.

“Still, I love colour and that’s what I’ve become known for. It’s just how I’ve always dressed, ever since I could dress myself. As soon as I could afford or make my own clothes, what I’ve always been attracted to has been bright.”

So, given the choice between a colourful outfit from a charity shop and, say, a brand-new black suit from a top designer like Versace, which would she choose?

“I’d go for the colourful thing from a charity shop over a black Versace suit every time. Everything I have in black stays unworn in my wardrobe. Even if it’s a pair of jeans, there always has to be something funny about the jeans, some colour or something.”

Does she enjoy the effect her sense of colour has on others?

“I dress to please myself, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t aware. It’s a thing that makes me happy more than anything else, but it’s nice when there’s a secondary effect, like when a builder tells me I look cheerful. Some people laugh at it.”

The last laugh is very much with Lau. This is a woman living a Technicolor dream. “Thanks to the blog, I’m now effectively a full-time blogger, freelance writer, stylist and consultant. I’ve found myself with a strange new career and everything is still very new to me. There are a lot of grey areas and uncertainty.” Has she encountered animosity from the “established” writers on the fashion circuit?

“I get asked that a lot, but it’s not just an issue in fashion. Wherever you’ve got an uncontrollable online rabble supposedly taking away the living of other people, there’s bound to be resentment. “But I really don’t see it that way. Our media landscape is changing dramatically, and the way people consume information is changing dramatically. We are at the stage where we bloggers are just starting to integrate.”

Integrating? Or taking over? Whatever happens next, it’s people like Lau who make the world a more colourful place for us all to enjoy.

The Dulux Let’s Colour Awards 2014

Now in their second year, the Dulux Let’s Colour Awards recognise those whose work with colour has enriched our lives in six categories: Homes & Interiors; Fashion & Beauty; Technology & Design; The Arts; Contribution to Colour; Colour Ambassador and the publicly voted Colour Moment of the Year. In the coming weeks look out for coverage of the award winners, and selected entries to the Guardian’s special Camera Club assignment, in association with Dulux.

Susie Lau interview

* Some part of her interview from 

http://www.theguardian.com/theobserver/2014/feb/16/susie-lau-interview-london-fashion-week

Interview by 

Wrapping up: Susie Lau, aka Susie Bubble, at New York fashion week earlier this month.

Describe your style.
Very eclectic. I mix up different styles. I love colour, I love print and enjoy trying lots of different things.

What’s your favourite item right now?
A bright orange faux-fur coat. It’s pretty pimping! I wore it a lot in New York because it’s the warmest thing ever. I was a blob of orange bobbing up and down in a sea of black. Quite a look.

What are your style tips for this spring/summer?
Lots of reflective fabric and sheeny, shiny metallics. Pleated skirts too. There’s going to be a lot of that on the high street. Plus what I would call “maximal expression”: art-inspired prints, abstract patterns and bold graphics.

Would you like to see more different body shapes on the runway too?
If I’m truly honest, I’m not sure it’ll ever happen. What designers are going for at shows is a uniform look to show off the clothes and let the audience see the lines. That doesn’t mean it’s right, that’s just the way it is. Editorial and advertising are more likely to change than catwalk. Magazines are already showing more naturalistic shapes. But I don’t agree with this clamour for “real” or “normal” either. Everything’s heightened in fashion. A lot of this industry is a fantasy.

Peering out from behind her heavy, glossy black fringe, Susie Lau is wide-eyed with excitement. Dressed in an Erdem organza cape and matching floral-print blouse, it’s easy to see why the 29-year-old’s adventurous style is devoutly followed by thousands around the globe on her blog, Style Bubble. The eldest of four sisters (Lau is British-born Chinese with both parents from Hong Kong) she realised the dividends of straight-talking early on: the Londoner’s honest and analytical musings have established her as a pioneer who has helped shape fashion’s current landscape, with an appeal that reaches and far and wide.

‘I never intended to get into the fashion industry. I studied history at University College London and I was working in advertising when I set up my blog seven years ago. I started it as a way of expressing my love of fashion without actually working in the industry, because I never thought I could. Somehow, two years later I ended up atDazed & Confused as the online editor. I think it came about because fashion started to embrace bloggers, whereas before we were outsiders and publications didn’t understand us. I was part of that first wave when blogging archetypes were set; commentators, street style, personal style – my peers were people like Garance Doré, Scott Schuman and Imran Amed. We made it up as we went along: today bloggers are editors, web editors and stylists.

Image‘Being a blogger is an all-encompassing role. My day-to-day routine really varies. In London, I spend a lot of time in front of my computer, researching, writing and editing photos, or I will be out and about visiting studios, exhibitions, conducting interviews and taking pictures. I work for myself so I have to do everything by myself. If I’m travelling, my days can be filled with literally anything. I love discovering different scenes in different cities. Fashion is so global now, so it’s nice to visit places like Shanghai, Bangkok and Istanbul. Discovery is the best part of my job. It’s exciting and makes me want to work faster and keep up with the pace of the digital world.

‘Leaving the house presents itself as an opportunity to wear your favourite things. I like wearing all of mine at once, and if they clash a little bit then that’s OK. I’ve never really been into jeans – I’m getting more into them lately and will wear ripped styles with a denim jacket and a matching shirt. But I’m just as comfortable in a pair of loud printed trousers as I am jeans.

‘My style has definitely evolved. I’ve gone through so many phases; at one point I would wear only after 1940s’ tea dresses, but I don’t have good hair for victory rolls. It’s important to go through these things. Even now I wouldn’t say the way I dress is my final developed style – there is no final stage, there’s only evolution.

‘Hot weather brings out the maximalist in me. Even in summer I’m still the person who wears loads of layers. Two years ago I went to Orange County in California and I couldn’t have stuck out any more. I was on the beach wearing an orange bathing suit with a little jacket on top and some sheer trousers over my one-piece – all topped off with a big hat. But that’s my idea of beachwear. I’m the person who can’t stop decorating a cake. I can’t just put one flower on; I’ll add another, then stars, then hundreds and thousands. More is more.

‘My wardrobe is 30% vintage, 30% high street, 30% designer. When I travel, I seek out great vintage places. Tokyo is my favorite city for shopping – it’s where I go for my second-hand Comme des Garçons and Junya Watanabe fixes. I naturally go for show pieces and end up spending more money than intended to, but I can’t help it, I buy from the heart. My closet is organised chaos but there are vague sections; obviously there’s the after 1940s’ tea dress section but I don’t wear them any more so they just sit there, rather forlornly.
