CALLING ALL FASHIONISTAS: With Merdeka Day just upon us, are you ready to show some local love while looking extra #fetch? You’re in luck as Sometime by Asian Designers has collaborated with fashion icon, Neelofa to launch the Lofarbag collection this 29th of August on Zalora!
Practicality shall not be sacrificed in the name of style — If you are a girl on-the-go from sunrise to sundown, (heads up) this is going to be your go-to bag from now on. Transitioning from #GirlBoss to Soirée Queen will be a cinch! Although these well-crafted arm candies may look simple at first glance, a double take will display an exquisitely finished, structured and compact square cut cross-body bag with refined gold geometric detailing. Take a quick peek inside and you’ll find triple pockets and space for daysss. Bonus point: It’s vegan-friendly, so Mother Nature will be nodding in approval.
Mirroring Neelofa herself whilst channeling the wardrobes of modern ladies near and far, three elements were extracted to create the Lofarbag collection: Confidence, Graceful and Fun! What’s the shade range? Let’s just say that you can colour us Black, Maroon, Navy, Dark Brown, Orange, Red, Baby Blue, Nude and Mocha.
For all you gothic sirens or Classy Hepburns, the Confidence range is made for you as it possesses darker hues to complement that elegant yet mysterious side of you. To the Posh Spices in the room, feast your eyes on the Graceful series as soft pastels are perfect for satisfying that sophisticated palette of yours. Last but not least, the Fun section is chock-full of electrifying splashes of colour for those bold beauties whose main motto is “Go Bright or Go Home!”
As a style guide before you spend your coin on the next dream bag (these beauties retail at RM259 over on Zalora.com.my), take a look at what our CLEO readers had to say about their absolute must-haves to keep within arm’s length before leaving home:
“Generally, I’m really into crossbody rectangular camera bags or a small, structured top-handle bag; the kind your grandma would wear in the ’40s. I can’t stand clutter in my bag so on off-duty days, I carry a small wallet with ID and bank cards, a pouch containing two lippies, a balm and a mirror, keys and phone. As much as I love little bags, for workdays, I need one that’ll at least fit a book and keep my hands free since I’m always taking content at work events. Sleek, minimalist backpacks are my go-to for work. Oh, and I like a detailed bag for the evenings—feathers, some shine, cute accents. You won’t find a plain satin minaudière in my closet!”- Medina Azaldin, 26, Beauty Writer
