Whimsirl Raya di Malaya Guli Rainforest Girl Baju KurungThe second print in our Spring Summer 2015 is the Guli Rainforest. We want you to have a look at the the worldly story behind the print, the inspirations, and the playful cut of this Kupu-kupu baju kurung!
Whimsigirl Raya di Malaya Guli Rainforest Girl Baju KurungThe Guli Forest is the oldest tropical rainforest in the world. The forest was aptly named Guli, which means marbles in Malay, due to its colourful residents like Tompok, Belang and Bujang.

#passagethroughmalaya : Belang Tote Bag

March 27, 2015

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

We’re always finding illogical ways to squeeeeze into some Whimsigirl pieces, but to no avail. Like as if anything’s changed since the last time we tried on those fitted 6Y top and was stuck, zzzz. So, we thought of just designing one item that us adults can finally own (and wear).

Say hellooooo to our tote bag with our very own Belang and Tompok print from the Spring/Summer ’15. It has a long handle which makes it perfect for slinging over the shoulder, but not TOO long that it reaches the floor when you hold it down.

The totes will only be available for purchase for ONE DAY only at The Little Market, Hello Deer this Saturday, from 12-8pm. So if you’re in need of a good shopping tote, anddd if you would like to squeeze in some Whimsi time during that period, we would love to say hi to you lovelies 🙂

We shot our first ever Spring / Summer 2015 last year, so imagine having to keep this whole thing a secret for 6 whole months! Now that the collection is out (the first drop is available here), I can finally let you in on the action 🙂
The shoot went on smoothly partly because of our friend and photographer, Nadirah Zakariya, was a dream to work with. It’s super important for us to have someone that works great with kids, and she’s exactly thatProcessed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

You can easily shop the Kriketa here, Midnight hash Masala Top here, and the Forest Hash Masala Pants from here

The concept behind Passage Through Malaya was inspired by the movie The Darjeeling Limited as well as travelling throughout Malaysia (imagine wild animals, a map, old trains, and polaroids). Even though we tried to be as organized as we could, but you can only plan SO much when it comes to 10 little chickadees, right?!Processed with VSCOcam with c3 preset

Not to sound like a creepy crawly, but seriously, CALL US AND WE’LL BABYSIT FOR YOUR CHILD 🙂

Never. a. dull. moment. That’s for sure.

To incorporate the travelling concept into the shoot, we made a blown-up bus/ train tickets like how you would find them in the 90s

Behind every good man picture, is a great woman team. The enthusiastic parents and aunties that were shouting, jumping, making alll sorts of noises and hand gestures just to get the kids to respond accordingly; THEY’RE the real heroes 🙂

Hands down, the coolest girl in town wearing the Kriketa

This little rice ball fits our Forest Hast Tuah Playsuit quite nicely. He was squeezed left and right by everyone. That’s what you get for being so pudgy!!
