With new eyes

Fashion, Style File

Let’s be frank. As wonderful and inspiring traveling in the city may sound, it’s fast paced nature can be at times stressful. I am a city girl at heart and I genuinely love the speed at which things go. I enjoy the crowd as I love being around people, but at the same time, I get to experience solitude because everyone is doing their own thing and marching to the beat of their own drum. I feel like I can be a part of something grander, but yet still be myself, celebrate my own individuality, live accordingly to the way I wish, and dress according to the way I love.

I admire the diversity of a city. I look up to the sky scrapers and architecture and it puts me in awe. I am always inspired by what I see around me.

These were my exact sentiments as I wandered through the streets of Hong Kong as I carried along with me during my trip a functional but yet stylish bags from BONIA.

I worked with BONIA, an international luxury brand and leather specialist, who has created a trademark legend in the fashion industry, known for modern, elegant and contemporary designs, to style some of my favourite pieces from their collection.

This backpack, from the Bonia’s Giulietta Collection, is made of quality leather, and is effortlessly chic when worn in multiple ways.
I paired it simply with a casual look, sneakers & shorts, as I wanted a laid-back evening exploring the nook and crannies of the island- cafes and local boutiques.

On another occasion, I carried my Shoulder bag as I was ready to take on downtown and central Hong Kong. The pinkish hues of the bag was elegant and modern and it added a fresh pop of colour to my outfit. The tassel details, exposed thick zipper and convenient compartmentalisation made this my favourite go-to bag for days.

Now, how do you feel brand new every time you step into a city that you’ve been to before? I guess, for me, it is to seek new experiences, be more experimental with my style, and look at things with new eyes.

Head over to Lazada from today till 23rd March to shop exclusive deals on your favourite BONIA designs!
