Nicholas Edward Choi, Inez Leong, Utah Lee, Vivian Ma and Moonie Chu are all too familiar with the importance of precision, accuracy and style. Collaborating with Swiss avant-garde watch brand, TAG Heuer and Italian fashion icon, Intimissimi, Hong Kong’s most influential athletes explore the Connected collection in unique hosiery.
Nobody understands the importance of innovation and total range of movement better than these five sports influencers. Redefining fitness and social media influencing in Hong Kong, fitness influencers’ examples of leadership, positivity and originality strike a collective note of optimism for a brighter tomorrow. The Calzedonia tights and Intimissimi intimates add a sophisticated touch to the casual loungewear that has been the trend of choice for the last 12 months.
By breaking borders, promoting connectivity and rewriting social codes, fitfluencers are celebrating strong bodies and strong minds. This is mirrored in the TAG Heuer Connected collection, that allows data sharing between friends- from the monochromatic everyday pieces to bright eye-catchers, there is something for everybody.
Skilled fencer and fashion-experimenter, Choi wears the Connected collection with a candy red watch strap to compliment his playful style. A weathered sportsman and expert in precision, accuracy, and explosive movements, Choi sees a lot in common with the watch he is sporting. The lightweight stainless steel carbide, makes the watch light as air, hardly noticeable on the wrist. The bold red strap contrasting with the black ceramic bezel makes for an outstanding luxury statement piece for every occasion.
Nike Master Trainer and mother of two, Utah Lee is the pioneer of the new wave of fitness that has taken Hong Kong by storm. With her bold, avant-garde style, the fun-loving orange strap Connected is ideal. The delicate lace of the Intimissimi intimates contrast her tough-as-nails workout ethic and highlight her softer side.
Vivian Ma, Asian games medalist and former Hong Kong team cyclist is used to balancing her life at top speeds. Her prowess on the bike can be monitored with the Connected’s built-in accelerometer and gyroscope, keeping her just one touch away from her race stats. The sleek build and polished bezel make it a highly versatile work of art, similar to the delicate patterned black tights, encasing her long legs.
As another star fencer in the national Hong Kong fencing team, Moonie Chu‘s elegant dress is complemented by the timeless, modern design of the black-strap Connected. The red accents on the face of the watch and the glimmering case make the Connected the only accessory available that brings both functionality and style to the party.
Inez Leong, fashion model and founder of Fitnez Studio never needs to compromise on fashion or practicality. With the Connected, she can have both. Her attention-grabbing monochrome tights detailed with intricately styled fans are an elegant addition to any outfit. The high-quality materials meaning snags are a distant memory.
