Media launch: Love Bonito opens in Tangs Vivocity

After a spell of online success, the beautiful ladies of Love Bonito have moved on to the next obvious stage of the business: having its inaugural brick-and-mortar store at Tangs Playlab Vivocity! (Lucky west-siders). I had the privilege to attend its media launch; where we were given first picks of the latest collection before the Chinese New Year shopping craze sets in.

Can you spot celebrity May Wan and her kids? She's wearing a dress from Love Bonito's latest collection.

 An extensive array of florals, pop colors and always flattering cuts. Rather than the usual red hues for the CNY period, I saw alot of purples, blues and fushcia....which is such a relief from the house-visiting AngPow crowd! Of course, there were the quintessential cheongsams for the picking, with classic floral prints but a much more flattering bias cut than the run-of-mill ones.

My personal favourites seem to gravitate to this particular fool-proof red chiffon dress with just the right amount of swirly motifs to make it interesting. AND how gorgeous is that golden faceted clutch?!!

And this lacy monochrome lace romper that just oozes sensuality!

This one was worn by May Wan, as shown in my earlier picture above. The intricate lace details are lovely, but sadly I have a short neck so it doesn't look as good on me :(

Was also so happy to meet with old friends and chat personally with the lovely founders Viola and Rachel (who were just so warm, friendly and passionate in discussing the label)! These hardworking ladies are truly inspirational, as I reminisced about their initial label, formerly called Bonito Chico. I absolutely loved their dresses, very Balmain-esque.

This week they launch their final instalment of Julien FourniƩ for Love, Bonito and orient collection, so do keep a look out for it! Stand a chance to win a $20 Love, Bonito voucher by liking & share their New Arrivals Preview Album with a creative caption.

Before I sign off and fight my spring-cleaning head on,
here's wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year, readers!
