Geographically, Malaysia is almost as diverse as its culture. 11 states and 2 federal territories (Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya) form Peninsular Malaysia which is separated by the South China Sea from East Malaysia which includes the 2 states (Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo) and a third federal territory, the island of Labuan.
One of Malaysia's key attractions is its extreme contrasts which further add to this theme of ‘diversity’.

The farewell to the immense talent of Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel was framed just as he’d imagined – with a show that was somber yet serene, a capturing of airiness and substance; a slice of Chanel heaven atop a snow-bound haven.

At Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière questions the line that separates the digital and the real worlds as he codenamed his latest Collection ‘Geolocated’, describing it as a melting pot of different tribes coming together to a place where expression is free to be.Read More
