Bonia wants you to celebrate the finer things in life as it brings culture and classic-revivals in its Spring 2021 release to flaunt all year round.  

This season, Bonia drew inspiration from exploring the everyday objects and tomes that drove them to create these elegant carry-alls. By mixing heritage and archival silhouettes, the Camilla Re-Edition and Naiara, are here to be the ultimate trusty companion. To match the minimal persona of the collection, the gorgeous campaign shot by Paris-based Malaysian photographer, Michele Yong exudes that dreamy resort-meets-European adventure feel. We can definitely foresee us wearing these pieces out and about once it’s safe to do so. If you’re curious to find out more, scroll down for a read.

What we love about the Camilla Re-Edition

With shoulder bags on the rise, this 2002 revival is a blessing in disguise for bag lovers. The Camilla receives a makeover with the house’s special edition magnified monogram, and Neu B logo in neon green, pink and black. You’ll even receive the Baby Camilla when you purchase the bag to exude the double-bag trend. Apart from its electrifying colourway, the bag is versatile and easy to style as a shoulder bag, sling bag and crossbody too. 

Pair the bag with a monochrome outfit or stand out by making a statement with colours to contrast. We would pick a baby blue outfit to go with the neon pink Camilla Re-Edition.

The Camilla is out in-stores and online.

What we love about the Naiara

Bonia’s second highlighted piece is The Naiara, inspired by the Art Nouveau Peranakan tiles; often decorated at homes through the Malaysia Nyonya community. You’ll find intricate lines from the tiles transformed as the quilted padded outlines on the bag. The quilted bag with detachable strap comes in neutral shades of brown and burnt green alongside a chunky gold chain for some edginess.

Perfect for dinners and events, the Naiara is a harmonious pairing to go with your slip dresses, flared pants and frilly skirts.

The Naiara will be available in February 2021.
