Introducing Asia's Most Stylish 2020
Find out who made our Asia's Most Stylish list for 2020
By Tatler Asia
October 05, 2020
The most fashionable men and women from around Asia

The word "stylish" conjures a cornucopia of images. Perhaps it’s an immaculate woman posing grandly in a ballgown, or a popular influencer who can pull off any trend, or maybe it’s someone whose look is so distinctive she can be recognised a mile away.

The men and women featured on this year’s Asia’s Most Stylish list include all of the above and more—they are newcomers and veterans, edgy and classic, maximalist and minimalist, but one thing they all have in common is an undeniable mix of confidence, sophistication and flair.

The Iconoclasts

Trend-defying or trend-setting, these original rebels are never interested in following fashion rules. Their instantly recognisable, distinctive looks have become synonymous with their names.

I once wore a long vintage tweed coat, a vintage baseball T-shirt with a long-sleeved denim shirt under it and Levi’s 501 jeans with holes to a party where everyone was dressed in slick black tuxes. Definitely felt odd and out of place. I learnt to read the invitation’s dress code for future events, not to strictly follow but to at least have an idea of the situation.
