Bonia treated shoppers and guests alike to a rocking show at Pavilion KL as part of the Pavilion Pit Stop Fashion Show, introducing its new line, Bonia Eternal Skies by the always energetic and enigmatic Gaetano De Franceschi.
De Franceschi, who has designed for the likes of Hugo BOSS and Michael Kors, was drawn into the world of Malaysian fashion by Bonia Brand Director, Mr Daniel Chang. Bonia’s new collection, Eternal Skies, is meant to “allow our mind to wander, relax, and arrive at a restful state of mind”, said De Franceschi.
The collection certainly achieved De Franceschi’s aim, with a refreshing palette of bright and pastel summer colours and playful lines. Accompanying the look were Bonia’s signature leatherwear with a refreshing mix of colours and cutting edge combinations of texture that would look.
This year’s look featured comfortable cuts, clean lines and eye-catching accessories, made all the more eye-catching by the all-white setting. The collection turned Pavilion’s Centre Court into what seemed to be an European summer, much to the delight of the audience.
Never to be a one-man show, Bonia also flew in renowned Australian artist Christopher Purnell to create a custom art piece for the show, and Anita Sarawak to entertain the crowds. Together, the trio put together an electrifying show from beginning to end.
