I'm diverting my travel-laden blogpost with local fashion news. Too much of travel does make me miss a bit of frivolity once in a while. Having no ample time to be glued on TV like I used to before, I'm not overly well-versed with the who's who of local entertainment industry, but it's not so easy easy to ignore when it comes to Malaysia's immensely known celebrity Scha Alyahya. With her innate sense of style, it's natural to see her collaboration with notable online retailer of all South East Asian design Fashion Valet come to fruition. The Scha x FV collection features contemporary voluminous silhouettes coupled with the ever so favorable pastel tones and color blocking - predictably going to be received pretty well by the young and urban demographics of Malaysian fashion-conscious girls.
Ruched detailing that is a welcome change, making this piece stand out from the other tops in the collection
Electric blue zippers as an "edgy" detailing, which appear on some of the pieces
Flared sleeves makes it an easy option to wear for casual and formal events - one trend that I don't see dwindling down any time soon
My fav pick: this pleated/structured skirt which has an origami feel to it (perhaps inspired by Calla flower, which this piece is named as). I wonder how much pressing should be done in order for that fold to take effect nicely, but I'm sure fabric starch products should come in handy...
