6 Korean Labels We Love At ZALORA | Clozette

K-culture, K-drama, K-beauty, K-fashion! We just can’t get enough of the Korean craze here, so much so that even Zalora had to cave in to our demands as our go-to haven for shopping online. Earlier in August, the digital fashion retailer -- along with Samsung -- presented 16 premium Korean brands as part of the #ZaloraLovesKFashion evening held at The Blue Room at The Arts House.


Guests were treated to Korean-inspired canapés and soju cocktails, and a multi-label fashion showcase that reflected the it trend of the moment: Korean fashion. Ahead, we pick out six Korean labels -- now available at Zalora -- that have been filling up and readying our shopping carts for check out.

Lucky Chouette



The sub-brand of Jardin de Chouette, Lucky Chouette is a vibrant street style brand that boasts a casual yet feminine vibe. If you’re a fan of graphic prints with a youthful edge, get shopping here. The brand also recently teamed up with Laneige for the Korean beauty brand’s third annual installment of the Laneige Meets Fashion series, featuring its iconic owl motifs (Chouette translates to “owl” in French -- get it?) on the limited edition makeup products.

Stylenanda



For the Korean fashion lover, a Seoul holiday will always include a trip to Stylenanda’s brick-and-mortar store in Hongdae. Now, we know that the brand -- also known for their beauty line, 3CE -- is currently stocked online and at multi-label store i.t. in Singapore, but we have to say that we appreciate the convenience of a digital shopping cart (and warehouse) situated right at home.


Jucy Judy



Are you always game for some fun in fashion? Then Jucy Judy is right up your alley. Dubbing themselves as a fashion playground, Jucy Judy is for the girl on the street who knows no boundaries and is never afraid of experimenting with fashion.


Nohant



If you’re guilty of stealing your other half’s shirts to assemble your #ootds, you must know Nohant. This urban cool brand transforms classic pieces into sleek designs. The best part? It’s unisex. So, good news: you get to share a wardrobe staple. Bad news: you may end up fighting to wear a wardrobe staple.


Headline Seoul



Headline Seoul’s brick-and-mortar venture into Singapore was short-lived. After closing its first flagship store that opened in 2013 after almost two years, great news: they’re now back, and they’re on Zalora.

It’s that time of the year again where you have to temporarily say goodbye to summer and be sad that your hassle-free days are coming to an end. By this time, most students are back at their respective universities, while others still can’t accept the fact that school is about to start again.

However, going back to school isn’t always boring. Doing things like learning something new, meeting people, and reuniting with your clique are all exciting! Another fun thing about preparing for school is shopping — and who doesn’t love shopping?

If you’re still unsure of what to shop for your back-to-school wardrobe, we’ve listed the 5 most basic essentials to get you through your hectic school days.


Jeans


Skinny jeans, mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, or any type of jeans are one of the most important, if not the most important, pieces of clothing everyone needs in their closet. They’re ready to wear at all times and will always make you look trendy without even trying.


Button Down Shirt


This wear-anywhere piece is very simple yet so elegant, and has always been a closet staple. What's not to love about this top? It doesn’t need much styling, and it can be matched with almost any kind of bottom.



Denim Jacket


Not really a fan of repetitive outfits? Put a denim jacket over it to add a bit of edge and twist; making you look instantly chic. Always a life-saver!



Sneakers


Embrace the rising athleisure trend and flaunt your sexy gym shoes to class. Stick with neutral colors for easier styling (and commuting) and stay comfortable all day long!

They're young, talented, fresh-faced, and will surely change the fashion industry with their innovative collections. Who are we talking about? The men and women selected by AirAsia to represent their respective home countries and battle it out at the Grand Finale of the AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search 2016 show at KL Fashion Week Ready To Wear, of course!


Last 19th August at Pavilion KL, underneath the bright lights and the pumping music, a slew of models began their descent on the runway, which officially marked the beginning of the fashion competition's finale. It was a highly anticipated spectacle as selected fashion designers from Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia showcased their best and most intricate work to try and bag the title of “AirAsia’s Most Promising Young Designer 2016”.


And with #TeamClozette sitting front row throughout fashion week, we were able to take notes of our favourite collections – from playful layers to angular silhouettes – and give you an exclusive look at them. So keep reading below to find out our top picks from the AirAsia show!

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


Sun goddess



Inspired by Melasti, a Balinese purification and ceremony ritual, Indonesia’s Imme Kristiani Firman mixed bright hues with angular cuts and silhouettes to give a new and fresh twist to the term “power dressing”. Are you ready to strut your way into the office wearing this?

Wildflower



As the winner of the AirAsia Runway Ready Designer Search 2016, we can definitely see why as Thai designer Anuruq Jaidee came out with a balanced collection that still managed to emphasise the contrast between the Earthy details and the neutral hues of the clothes very well. 


Candy coated



Amping up the show with striking candy colours and detailed layers is Malaysia’s Ng Yi Xuan. With shift dresses that will catch the eye of anyone who lays eyes on them, paired with coats just as bright, this collection is a dream for all fashionistas.


Ethereal hues



Celebrating the Philippines and the Filipinos, Ron Xavier Santos’s looks boldly speak of his culture with the designs and materials used to create them. Their flowy and airy aspects, combined with contemporary styles, are perfect to wear for the region’s tropical weather. Can you say "street style on fleek"?


Purity



If you think the colour white is boring, you’ll surely take it back as Singapore’s Stefanie Amanda makes the light hue cool again with her clean, figure-hugging and sheer pieces. Plus, her use of smart detailing adds just the right amount of 'pop' to the look to make it stand out even more.
