1980s fashion looking as beautiful as ever in BONIA’s Summer 2021 collection.
Summer’s not over yet according to BONIA. The BONIA x SCHA collection is one of the brand’s biggest collaborations this year, having just launched in April. While we thought that’s a wrap for the fashion brand’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection — it’s not. BONIA reintroduces two bag designs that you may find familiar.
The Summer 2021 collection titled “Visions of Jupiter” is inspired by the decadence of the 1980s. It’s a stylised tribute to how people in the 80s would see and live in the future, expressed through colours, moods and vibes. The products are elevated with a twist, by incorporating influences of the Malaysian heritage — a BONIA signature that many would instantly recognise through its designs. For this collection, the two highlights are the Adjani Shoulder Bag and Camilla Re-Edition.
Adjani Shoulder Bag
Look familiar? We’re not surprised as its ruffle strap and curved shape silhouette have become a signature feature. The Adjani Shoulder Bag is also part of the BONIA x SCHA collection. Now for Summer 2021, the bag comes in special Monogram and denim designs. The bag design is inspired by the shelled carvings and sculptural flowers that appear on Tuscan pillars, hence the ruffles and curved shape. You can carry the bag on the shoulder with its ruffle strap, or a clutch by flipping the strap around the bag. Another long strap is included so you can style it as a crossbody as well.
A classic of 2002 has been brought back with a modern reiteration. Now this versatile shoulder bag comes in a variety of new hues. The Camilla Re-Edition series has definitely gotten bigger, also featuring the house’s Neu B logo. Camilla’s strap can be adjusted to three different lengths, either to be worn as a shoulder bag, sling or crossbody. Also not forgetting, the adorable ‘baby Camilla’ that is detachable so you can choose to use it together or on its own with a crossbody strap that is included too.
