Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Style -

f you’ve been prowl­ing through the In­ter­net long enough, you’ll cer­tainly find Cher­rie Mun’s name just a lit­tle bit fa­mil­iar. A long­time squad mem­ber of Malaysian won­der­boy Joe Chia and one-half of cult blog Duo Gigs, Cher­rie Mun’s street cred is as solid as you’d ex­pect it to be. With a pen­chant for fash­ion­for­ward trends (ex­ag­ger­ated sleeves and sky-high boots ga­lore)

with her sig­na­ture steely gaze, the 25-year-old’s bold and ex­per­i­men­tal style is a fresh de­par­ture from a sea of flirty miniskirts and peep toe plat­forms cur­rently flood­ing the city’s glit­terati scene. After all, any­one who dares to brave the Malaysian heat in a leather jacket needs to be com­mended.

Opt­ing to shoot among the hus­tle and bus­tle of Bangsar’s Telawi streets, it was ev­i­dent from the get-go that this wouldn’t be any or­di­nary per­son­al­ity shoot. We’re talk­ing back al­leys of restau­rants and bars, filled with graf­fi­tied walls and ques­tion­able posters that the re­sult­ing pic­tures could have passed off as Fetty Wap’s mu­sic video stills.

Some of Cher­rie’s trea­sure trove of state­ment ac­ces­sories: fox fur stole, black choker, and an­drog­y­nous Michael Kors brogues
