A First Look At The Second Sometime By Asian Designers And Alia Bastamam Collab

The Basta 2 is a Zalora exclusive!

There aren’t many who don’t know Sometime By Asian Designers. As its name suggests, it has served as a delightful platform for regional fashion designers to express their creativity with a more practical, affordable, and accessible twist. That’s right – bags! From Rizalman to Neelofa, the collab bags have been a hit each time they drop.

So much so that Alia Bastamam has joined them again for another collaboration: The Basta 2 bag, which is co-designed and produced by Sometime. The bag is also part of Bastamam’s exclusive- diffusion label Alia B, and had its runway debut earlier this year under Alia B’s Resort 18/19 collection.

“The Basta 2 completes my Resort 18/19 collection and I cannot contain my excitement to once again have my name etched on this creation,” said Alia Bastamam. The bag itself was inspired by the day-to-night lifesttyle of an urbanite, and their need for a loyal bag companion.

True to its inspiration, the Basta 2 effortlessly shifts from casual to classy- a removable strap allows it be worn as a cross-body bag or clutch.  The bag consists of a back pocket that holds small and compact items such as mobile phones or cards. Most interesting is a spacious secret compartment that’ll keep your valuable items securely and discreetly.

Available in 9 shades, the Basta 2 bag (RM229) is a Zalora exclusive and can be purchased on Zalora Malaysia from 11 am, 29 November 2018.
