Asim Haque and Savannah Qiu might seem like fire and water – her look is sophisticated, yet effortless; his is laid-back and casual. You might think they’d clash, and you wouldn’t be the first.

“I absolutely hated him when I first met him,” says Qiu, laughing. Qiu, a former fashion editor with Beijing’s Elegance Magazine and Haque, a street-style photographer who is vice-president of business development at Indus Canada Petroleum, met while attending fashion school in 2008.

Now married and with a baby on the way, their styles may be different, but from their matching gold Cartier wedding rings to their collection of shoes, they share a love of fashion.

“We love shoes – lots of heels and sneakers. We have a dedicated closet in our house just for shoes,” says Haque.

Qiu likes pairing masculine jackets with more feminine, vintage pieces she often finds on eBay. She has a penchant for luxury, and has an ever-growing collection of Chanel, Valentino and Givenchy.

Haque, on the other hand, prefers a toned-down look. He opts for high-quality basics from Norse Projects, and occasionally spiffs things up with special-collaboration garments or limited-edition sneakers.

“I want to take photos of people without them noticing me. I want to be invisible and that’s how I dress now,” he says.

Try as he might to blend in, it’s easy to spot this standout pair.
