August 2022 fashion news from OMEGA, TUMI and more:
Singapore’s athleisure brand, Butter, is now available in Malaysia
There’s a new athleisure brand in town. Singapore’s very own size-inclusive activewear brand, Butter, is finally available in Malaysia. Famed for its chic yet comfortable silhouettes, the collection was designed to suit all Asian body types. Yes, this means you won’t have to deal with excess fabrics or awkward sizing ever again. Plus, each product across all range feature sizes from XXS to XXL.
If you’re into high-intensity workouts, go ahead and try the BaseCore collection, and for low-intensity activities, we suggest the BaseFlex for its super smooth fabrics. For the BaseCore collection, explore the Piper bra, V-bra, biker shorts and classic leggings. The BaseFlex collection includes highlights such as the Flex bra, Yin bra, Flex shorts and Flex leggings.
We tested the BaseCore Piper Bra and classic leggings at the launch by attending a spin class with Journey Indoor Cycling Studio. Here’s what we love about the collection:
The BaseCore collection is famed for being compressive, comfortable and cool for everyday wear. During our 45-minute spin session, we loved how breathable the fabrics felt on our bodies during each stride and movement. Also, the Piper Bra and leggings provided strong support without any budge or adjustments. Once the session was up, we walked out of the class feeling fresh and energised. The best part? The range is pocket-friendly too. Catered for every personality, the BaseCore collection is available in five colours: Sesame, twilight, hot sauce, truffle and butter. Go bold and flaunt their signature butter hue. For something less striking, warm tones in twilight and hot sauce are your best options.
