Michael On



As a fashion writer for Chinese ELLE, ELLE MEN, Cosmopolitan and Grazia, Chrison Wang has his finger on the pulse of Asian fashion—and is quickly mastering the New York Fashion Week scene. Prepping for his trip to the city, Chrison shares what he looks forward to most, both at the shows and in those rare moments of downtime.

Where do you like to stay when you’re in NYC? 
I prefer to stay in an apartment, particularly one that is on a high floor and has a wonderful view of Manhattan. I feel more at home there than in a hotel—plus, I can cook some Chinese food in the kitchen. 

What’s your favorite Michael Kors piece in your closet?
A pair of aviators. I always feel comfortable in them and can sport them with a formal suit or a casual outfit. 

Describe them in three words.
Chic, unique and versatile.

What are your bag essentials for NYFW?
Honestly, I’m not obsessed with handbags. But if I had to choose one, I’d probably go for a neutral leather tote—simple and neat.

What’s your favorite thing about a Michael Kors show?
It’s so unpredictable! I was surprised when I saw the bold color blocking for Spring 2013especially after the Spring 2012 show when he presented a safari-inspired collection. 

Where will you head for lunch after the show? 
I’ll probably go to Jean-Georges’ Nougatine at Columbus Circle. I’ve missed their red snapper and desserts so much! I like that they don’t have fancy decorations—it’s all about the tasty cuisine.

And dinner? 
I have no idea yet. I’m a person who likes to try new things, so I’ll likely follow my friends, and hopefully they can fill my stomach with something I’ve never tried before.

What do you never miss when in NYC (time permitting!)?
I want to go for a full tour of the MoMA. I love fine arts and haven’t had the chance to see this great museum yet.

Do you have any special plans for Valentine’s Day?
Nothing special…I’m still a single man!
