After the success of its first collaboration, both Asics and Vivienne Westwood are coming together once more. This time, it’s to style one of Asics’ most iconic sneakers, the GEL-KAYANO 26. While its previous collection featured five different sneaker models, its latest collab will showcase just one sneaker in two colourways — black and white. It made its debut during Vivienne Westwood’s Fall/Winter 2020 catwalk show in Paris with its slated global release set for 28th September 2020.

Stoned & Co. is a local streetwear brand while the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) is the Taiwanese tech giant’s gaming arm. After collaborating with both IKEA as well as Acronym, it looks like the gaming company is now partnering up with Stoned & Co. for a special capsule collection to commemorate the launch of the ROG Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop. The collection draws inspiration from the laptop’s AniMe Matrix dot display with bold messaging and minimalist designs. Part of the capsule includes t-shirts with three designs, a bomber jacket, a hooded jumper, and two headbands in ASUS ROG’s signature colours of black and red.

The collection is now available on Stoned & Co.’s website as well as its flagship stores, including in SS15 Subang Jaya, Stoned & Co. Mid Valley, and Stoned & Co. Lot 10 KL.

Longchamp My Pliage Signature

Longchamp My Pliage Signature

The iconic Longchamp Le Pliage tote is one of its more popular pieces and the French luxury leather goods maker is bringing back. During its Fall/Winter 2020 show, Longchamp is adding a personal touch to its iconic collection of totes with its My Pliage Signature. These customisable totes come in three sizes with 20 colours to choose from. But that’s not all; Longchamp is also introducing the My Pliage Signature totes collection to be made of 100% recycled polyester. You can customise the tote however you see fit. Pick from five different colours just for the leather trim while the press stud on the flap has 15 different colour choices. You can also have your initials printed onto the front of the bag in big and bold letters, using an eco-friendly water-free transfer printing process. This ensures that no two totes will be exactly the same.

Bonia “Neu Romantic” Collection

Bonia’s latest collection is called “Neu Romantic” and it takes you on a journey through the brand’s storied past and towards the mystical horizons that is its future. For its latest campaign, Bonia brought in a wealth of homegrown talent, including Donce Fine Floristry’s otherworldly arrangements as well as Chong Yan Chuah’s meticulous 3D renderings. Bonia also introduces it’s new and redesigned emblem as part of the collection known as ‘Neu B’. This embraces the brand’s love of Italy, the Renaissance era, and famed historical sculptor, Giambalogna.
