favourite Mawi ne pos­sesses a charm­ing over-the-top per­son­al­ity while the other is pos­i­tively mel­low. Aisyah and Ha­jar, both 27 but born eight min­utes apart, are po­lar op­po­sites in char­ac­ter and fash­ion sense, and all about ex­press­ing them­selves through fash­ion. The scene was set; at home with the sis­ters in an art­ful chaotic mess of their en­tire wardrobe strewn all over the quirky dé­cor. As we comb through each look for this BAZAAR shoot, it be­comes ap­par­ent the sis­ters are noth­ing alike. Aisyah is mar­ket­ing man­ager of Kate Spade Malaysia, while Ha­jar is a so­cial media man­ager. Though their stream of thought and self-ex­pres­sion may dif­fer, both agree on one thing: state­ment pieces over a time­less col­lec­tion any day.

“Any­one can own a time­less col­lec­tion but iden­ti­fy­ing great state­ment pieces, that takes taste!” says Ha­jar. “It’s all about per­sonal choices. I be­lieve state­ment pieces rep­re­sent phases of my life. Ac­cu­mu­la­tively one day, these pieces will nar­rate fab­u­lous sto­ries,” adds Aisyah. What do you ad­mire about each other? Aisyah: Ha­jar would al­ways say, “Mis­match is the new match!” It is a valu­able les­son for me – the size and cost of your wardrobe does not de­ter­mine your abil­ity to be stylish. Ha­jar: I like how Aisyah dresses for her­self and no one else. Your most out­ra­geous pur­chase? H: A vintage Chanel Bucket bag. De­scribe one another’s sense of style. A: She is cre­ative and street-savvy. H: Ec­cen­tric and loud, a bit like her per­son­al­ity! Sea­son you love dress­ing for? A: Au­tumn/Win­ter be­cause I love lay­er­ing tex­tures and fab­rics. In my van­tage fash­ion per­spec­tive: faux fur, leather, and suede are all ac­cept­able in a sin­gu­lar look.
