Every Friday, we list our favourite
shoe persona to follow.
Tiffany Hsu – known as @handinfire on Instagram – is one to follow if you want to take a closer look at the ins-and-outs of the fashion industry.
Her role as fashion buying director at German retailer Mytheresa.com takes her around the world on the front row of fashion shows and brands’ showrooms, where she gets to have the first look at new collections and curate the best pieces for Mytheresa customers. So her Instagram feed will give you a glimpse into this high-flying, high-pressure role with snapshots from the catwalk or close-ups of all the accessories Hsu predicts will be hits for the upcoming season.
Most recently she shared this sea of lilac and baby blue pre-fall 2020 mules from Bottega Veneta’s showroom.
Her globetrotting and flair for trendy fashion pieces has also earned Hsu a wide social media following of her own, so apart from frequenting buying appointments she is also a regular on the street style scene and offers followers practical tips on how to style cult pieces for day-to-day life: From layering snake-effect Paris Texas boots with more animal print to pairing hot pink Balenciaga pumps with an Attico blazer dress in the same shade. It’s a colourful, directional approach to dressing that any fashion and luxury lover would appreciate.
