Naija-Spore Style Inspirations! Velda Tan

Velda Tan, co-founder of popular online store ‘Love, Bonito’ has recently come to my attention due to her clean, comfortable style. Like a lot of women, her style adapts to the environment, season and perhaps even mood?

Earlier this year, she left ‘Love, Bonito’ and founded a new label, ‘Collate’, a ‘mid-market’ designer label. So far, I much prefer Collate’s designs to Love Benito’s which I think targets a younger, very Singaporean style (think skater girl dresses)

Collate is has a very simple, almost austere aesthetic, with an unusual twist. See the bottom of the page for some of their designs I like. I like their price points (top end of UK high street), so it’s really all about whether their high quality.

Collate also reminds me of an amazing Nigerian label called Clan, that I’ll definitely be featuring in this series.

  • CO-FOUNDED ‘LOVE, BONITO’ WITH HER SISTER AND BEST FRIEND
  • STUDIED AT CENTRAL, ST MARTINS
  • WON 2013/2014 SME ASIA AWARD
  • BIG SOCIAL MEDIA FIGURE

I really love the grey dress above, perhaps less forgiving than some of her other style choices lol…

Her style has clearly evolved, and I like it!

Till next time…
