Love, Bonito, Singapore's leading online fashion store, has recently unveiled an exclusive activewear collaboration with Liv Lo, a popular Singaporean TV host, model and professional yogi who perfectly exemplifies a young, modern woman who takes pride in her career while loving herself and taking care of her own wellbeing.
Designed in-house, this quirky capsule collection features 9 stylish pieces that are functional, versatile, high quality and chic at the same time. Liv Lo and Love, Bonito both worked hand in hand and paid special attention to breathability, comfort, support and style when it came to making this collection come to life.
After half a year of conceptualising and designing, the capsule collection features flattering silhouettes that can be worn by women of any body type, and from sleeveless tank tops with cute captions to wearable sports jackets in a variety of colours and styles, these pieces can be easily mixed and matched according to your personality and style.
To learn more about the exclusive collection and this collaboration, we had a little chat with Liv Lo and the founders of Love, Bonito, Viola Tan and Rachel Lim. Grab a cup of tea and learn more below:
Q: Fitness, health and wellness have grown to become 'trendy' lately, especially in Malaysia. Of course, it's a good thing. But, adding onto that, can you tell us why this is more so important to you?
LL: Fitness, health and wellness have grown more popular, but it isn't a trend. I am glad to see it, particularly yoga, catching on and becoming more widely recognised. Yoga has been around for over 5,000 years and is a practice that benefits all of its practitioners. Not just physically, but spiritually and emotionally. I believe health goes hand in hand with happiness and living a longer life. If our longer life is not lived in health and happiness then what is the point of living for longer?
Q: Love, Bonito is one of the top Singaporean online fashion stores and it's also very popular amongst Malaysians. How did you feel when they approached you for this collaboration?
LL: It was a conversation that took place when we were discussing the idea of exploring sportswear. Seeing that LB has done collaborations with fashion designers before, we saw this as a good opportunity to combine our thoughts and came up with Liv Lo for Love, Bonito. I took on the designer and influencer role. It was a labour of love with each piece when it came to creating the right cut and fit from the best materials.
Q: Did you get to insert your own input when it came down to the materials, colours, styles and cute caption on the pieces?
