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 Ghesquièrequestions 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.

Dark clouds and heavy rain poured over the city centre as the Monday blues slowly passes by in the evening. Malaysia is well-known for bipolar weather especially when it’s close to the year end but that doesn’t stop people in the city to rush to their destination. Hotel staffs at W Hotel helped a few guests into the building as it gets heavier and I quickly made my way to the elevator to get to the 8th floor.

As a kid, many of us were dressed up in inexpensive garments that our parents got for us from The Store, Kip Mart, or AEON.
