There’s more to proportions than slouchy sweaters and pencil skirts. Designers are inventing more daring silhouettes season by season to test our style limits and ultimately, to let us have more fun. That’s what fashion is all about, anyway.

So if silhouette trends make you excited, scroll through and see five new shapes to try and help you get out of your style comfort zone. You can also check Clozette SHOPPE’s latest Style Report: Modern Silhouettes to see (and shop) more styles.

Cape Sleeves


(Get It Here)


Whether the cape sleeves are part of a top or dress, the shape lends a super heroine twist to the whole look. This silhouette is sure to inspire our holiday dressing game this December. Try: Rare London Midi Dress from Nasty Gal

Bell Sleeves


(Get It Here)


Three years ago, the shape of the season was ‘big shoulders, slim wrists’. Today the ‘volume’ has turned with the revival of bell sleeves, a popular 70’s trend that is fitted around the arms and loose down the wrists. The shape takes some getting used to, but you know the billowy sleeves will look great when dancing at parties. Groovy! Try: Movin On Up Top from Free People


Maxi Split Skirt


(Get It Here)


A maxi skirt with a thigh-high slit oozes demure sex appeal because of the length and flash of skin. Be daring and don’t be afraid to show off a leg in this part-sexy, part-modest silhouette. Try: WYLDR Maxi Skirt from Nordstrom


Wide-Leg Pants


(Get It Here)


The fashion- and future-forward bottoms are surprisingly slimming because they accentuate the waist when paired with a fitted top. Keep both in the same colour family or pick a jumpsuit-style to lengthen your frame. Try: Loveapella Wide Leg Jumpsuit from Nordstrom


Culottes


(Get It Here)


The cropped trouser style is our most favourite among the five – it has a breezy silhouette and brings a promise of a laid-back day, like Casual Friday at work or hanging out with friends on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Try: Chelsea28 Front Pleat Culottes from Nordstrom

Setting the launch atop one of the country’s iconic structures, KALAIA is absolutely doing everything right to embody the core of a true bohemian believer - taking in the wonders of the universe, feeling the earth beneath your feet and dancing until the moon fades. It was indeed a night to remember for, family, friends, guests and the designer herself, our Clozette Ambassador Coco Mercy.



It was an intimate evening with almost everyone on their best all-white outfit coming together to celebrate and welcome the brand’s Resort 2015 collection – To Anywhere.


Our Clozette Ambassadors were also all-out to support their fellow Clozetter in the launch. Spotted at the event were Anico, Cindy, Sydney, Hanna, and Melissa, giving Coco their cheers and well wishes to such an amazing collection.



Also present was Singaporean singer-songwriter Inch Chua who’s got some good things to say when asked about what she thinks of the brand “it’s very chic and also perfect for the Singapore weather.”


Understandably tired but not showing signs of it, Coco Mercy answered a few questions about her and the brand as we managed to steal her temporarily from the well-wishing crowd.


Has it been a dream of yours since you were young to have a clothing line? 
Not really, it was just 4 years ago that I came up with the idea.

What made you decide to come up with your own label and go for it? 
I felt that I’m not a corporate person. I just told myself if not now, when will I do it.

Favorite Designers? 
A lot actually, Giambattista Valli, Ellie Saab, Dolce and Gabbana, Versace to name a few.




--------------------------

A celebration of the modern free woman and the bohemian soul. 


Congratulations and more power to the whole KALAIA team!

Clozetters in Malaysia rejoice because Parkson Department Store in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur is bringing in SPAO, MIXXO, and WHO.A.U! 
 
Not only has K-beauty taken the world by storm, Korean fashion brands are slowly strengthening their global presence, and there isn’t a better way to start that with casual clothes brands in sunny year-round Southeast Asia!

Right in the golden triangle of the capital of Malaysia, not one but three brands are coming soon. No specific opening date has been released yet, but we can expect it in time for pre-christmas shopping. Here are the three brands we spotted!

--------------------------


SPAO

SPAO could be dubbed as the UNIQLO of Korea, offering very affordable basics from casual tees to suits and sportswear. The brand’s marketing game is on-point with their collaboration with leading Korean entertainment company, SM Entertainment. Featured as their endorsers are Super Junior, EXO, and FNC Entertainment’s AOA, bringing us a step closer to dressing up our boyfriends like our favourite K-Pop stars!

MIXXO

MIXXO is a women’s clothing brand targeted at women in their 20s to 40s. This brand claims its designs are made to fit Asian women. Their affordable yet relatively trendy designs are great especially for the working women in Asia. TaeTiSeo are currently the models of MIXXO, which make the brand even more attractive. Because, seriously, who wouldn’t want to dress like Girls’ Generation.


WHO.A.U

WHO.A.U, “who are you” is a casual clothing brand inspired by the “Californian dream” and can be compared to brands like Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch. If you are into that Californian summer style, keep your eye out for their polos and hoodies. Also check out their Korean Instagram account for styling inspiration.
