Instead of checking out your usual hot spots (virtual or not) for your next beach outfit, head to your getaway with a Malaysian-branded swimsuit packed in your suitcase!
If you didn’t already know, there is going to be a longgg weekend ahead of us, thanks to Malaysia Day (but let’s be honest, we Malaysians have got our mandatory off-days down pat). So, it’s the perfect time to dip your toes in the sand and get that summer tan! Before you escape to the beach and leave your troubles behind, don’t forget to pack that cute little swimsuit you have….yet to buy. No worries, we’ve got your back girl. Before you browse through your go-to brands though, why not check out some homegrown ones to show a lil’ local love?
That’s right, we have some swimmie labels right in our own backyard! Isn’t it strange that as residents of a tropical climate region, we are not quite familiar with or actively searching for our own swimwear brands? Odds are because there aren’t many available or marketed wide enough for all to see (the chicken or the egg theory could be played around here). Either way, we have scoured the net to unearth some hidden gems that you should feast your peepers on and more importantly-splurge on!
Fashion shall not be sacrificed in the name of patriotism, so read on to achieve that double combo:
Don’t let the name fool you-instead of sandy shores in California, Malibu Beachwear sprang to life right here in the realm of rojak. This label screams ‘modern chic’ for those who crave lusciousness and breathtaking elegance with some fun patterns thrown in the mix. If there is such a thing as the girl next door meets classy bombshell, then this would be it. Our pick would definitely be this contemporary Marilyn Monroe-esque cross-wrap beauty. Aesthetically, trust us when we say that you’ll be spoiled for choice so click away.
