Who has been catching up on the new Gossip Girl reboot? If you’ve been looking to channel their flirty, chic, and elegant vibe, Khoon Hooi channels the spirit of preppy ladies with his latest mini capsule collection, called “Birds in the City”.
Reminiscent of some of the most well-known characters or personalities such as Legally Blonde’s Elle Woods and Taylor Swift, the mini capsule provides a much-needed escapism during our lockdown days, while adding a touch of playfulness and whimsy. The colour palette creates just as much fun, infusing bold and striking shades into relaxed silhouettes.
If you wish to meet the three stars of Khoon Hooi’s “Birds in the City” collection, keep on reading:
Featuring flared sleeves and a relaxed silhouette, the Leighton tunic is emblazoned with 2D star-print lace that can be slipped into for entertaining at home or heading out for a casual stroll. It makes a breeze with dressing up, as it can be worn with an accompanying slip for a bolder look, or even layered over a swimsuit on your next beach holiday.
Crafted in the brand’s signature brocade, the Taylor top comes framed with voluminous puffed sleeve and a peplum hem to mimic a fuller silhouette. The drawstring waist adorned with a statement grosgrain bow creates an elegant, slender fit that pairs beautifully with a simple pair of jeans or the next piece in the capsule.
For a fun yet romantic look, the Brooklyn skirt sways playfully with every move thanks to the double layer of sharp pleats. Crafted in pleated organdy, it features a flexible elasticated waistband and comes in an array of colour block combinations. Perfect with ruffled tops such as a poet blouse, or a simple white tee for an everyday chic look.
