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:
“I’d say my essentials are pretty basic—a rubber band to tie my hair in case it gets too hot, a powerbank, a bottle opener and a lipstick or a tinted lip balm (because you never know who you’d bump into). For everyday use, I prefer small (but maybe big enough to fit a small water bottle), dark and cross-body bags as they go with most outfits and don’t get too heavy as I carry it throughout the day. Having any zip compartments inside to keep my makeup or small change are always a bonus! Oh, and I’m definitely a super disorganised person who just dumps in whatever she needs for the day, so it’s always easier to rummage through and find my stuff with a smaller bag.”- Faye Kwan, 21, Student
