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 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 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 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.

Whoever said that colours should be dictated by the seasons we’re in? And who made that one of the cardinal rules for dressing up? Fashion rules are meant to be broken because that's how it is every season - designers come out with clothes and prints that we could have never imagined existing, and they turn them into the trends of the time.

Which is why for this week’s top OOTDs, we compiled the looks that broke the rules of dressing up for fall by putting together our favourite rainbow-esque looks, therefore proving that fall is funner with colour!




This bright, blue and white striped ensemble by Clozette Ambassador RochelleAbella is a fun mixture of playfulness and femininity! The figure-hugging top and skirt are emphasised by her hair, which looks orange under the Sun, with her aviator sunglasses giving a bit of edginess to the whole outfit.



Sometimes, simplicity is all we need, and Clozette Ambassador charleneajose proved that with her mint green skater dress and nude heels! The shape of the dress beautifully gave her an hourglass shape, while her nude heels made her look taller!



Clozette Ambassador MelissaFerosha schooled us in the art of wearing pants by rocking a pair that is neither blue, black, white, or nude! She went with the 70s trend with some high-waisted, colourfully printed flared pants, a dark, denim shirt, a fedora, and of course, heels!



Even clothes can look like works of art, too. Clozette Ambassador AnastasiaLove played with colour by rocking a pencil skirt that looked like a watercolour painting, a black, lacy crop top, and a bright green purse!



Be inspired by Clozetter Katwinvasion’s bright outerwear ensemble! Not being bothered with the colour trends of the season, she beautifully kept cozy with a bright red-orange trench coat, some black tights, and everyone’s favourite fall shoes, a pair of white Ugg boots!

A fashion line helmed by popular Singaporean fashion blogger, Melissa Celestine Koh, Run After's debut at the recent Digital Fashion Week was a highly anticipated one. Known for her feminine, luxe, and flowy looks, Melissa's style has been resonating with the fashion community in Singapore and around the world, as evidenced by her strong social media and blog following.

Inspired by the theme “Modern Romantic,” the debut Cruise 2016 collection features classic pieces that encapsulate femininity and structure, which in a way echoes Melissa's own style as evidenced by the mix of flowy, structured, and subtly printed pieces. Keeping to simple and relatable details, the collection also features detail work, from embroidery to appliques and prints.

If you're a fan of Melissa's style, you'll be glad to know that her debut collection is exclusively on Zalora Singapore! Here are some of our favourite pieces that we can see ourselves wearing day-to-day.


Pleated Flare Maxi Skirt

Sometimes, a bit of flow is just what we need to get through the day. And this flowy maxi skirt is definitely something for those who like a touch of dramatic twirl in their lives. See it in action in this Instagram post from Melissa.

Gathered Off-Shoulder Sleeve Dress

(Get It Here)

Modern off-shoulder pieces are feminine and sophisticated, a grown up take on the off-shoulder peasant tops from years ago. This piece in particular favours sleek lines and structure for an all-year round city-chic look.

Gathered Sleeve Dress

There's no better way to create a statement than with a bold structure. This black mini-dress in particular features bold and exaggerated sleeves that add shape to an otherwise standard LBD.

Checkered Carrot Pants

(Get It Here)

Move over culottes, because carrot pants are in! Loose at the top and slightly slimming down past the knees, the carrot pants are for those who want a slimmer silhouette without compromising comfort. 

Looped Strappy Back Dress

Sometimes, we just need to head back to the classics; and this black and white checkered strappy dress does just that. It's quaint, feminine, and simple. 

Tie-Back Side Slits Dress

(Get It Here)

For something that's long and flowy, yet easy to incorporate into every day style, then this slit dress is a definite must-have. Grey-toned and finished off with strappy back details and side-slits, it could be our next wear-anywhere type of dress.
