Cult Clas­sic

CLEO (Singapore) - - FASHION -

The coolest bag this sum­mer isn’t made out of leather or even fab­ric – and it def­i­nitely won’t cost you a month’s salary. We speak to Jas­min Lar­ian, founder of Cult Gaia, on what makes her bags so de­sir­able (they’re sold out ev­ery­where!). Cult Gaia started off with Coachella-in­spired flower crowns and head­bands. What made you shift to in­tro­duc­ing the Ark bag? Our brand DNA has been built around cre­at­ing pieces that are ex­cep­tion­ally unique. The bag is an ex­ten­sion of that – wear­able art that is sub­tle and not overt. The orig­i­nal Ark bag is made of bam­boo. Why did you choose this ma­te­rial? Bam­boo is a re­new­able re­source so it’s ex­cep­tion­ally eco-friendly. I also think the nat­u­ral, im­per­fect el­e­ments of bam­boo make each piece unique and spe­cial. Can we ex­pect to see other items or ac­ces­sories in your col­lec­tion made of the same ma­te­rial? We will al­ways grav­i­tate to­wards nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als or try to mimic na­ture. The de­sign of our Acrylic Ark bags, for ex­am­ple, were in­spired by semi-precious stones and mar­ble. Since sum­mer is here, share with us a few styles we can pull off with the bag... The bags go with just about ev­ery­thing. I love it with a pair of jeans and a white tee, or with a black-tie gown.
