During a time when the smallest of treasures and exchanges have become increasingly precious, the designers at BONIA set out to explore the everyday objects and tomes that inspire and drive us in challenging times. The brand’s latest collection, called Objects of Desire, draws inspiration from these sources of verve with a diverse collection of designs both classic and modern, available in boutiques and online now.
The centrepieces of the collection are two bags that bring together past and future cues. Our Camilla Re-Edition looks to a 2002 design and updates it with modern cues – complete with a "baby Camilla", accurate to the smallest detail. The other star is Naiara – a return to our Malaysian roots. Inspired by hand-painted Nyonya tiles, the beautifully embossed handbag is a proud celebration of BONIA's rich heritage.
Photographed by Paris-based Malaysian photographer Michele Yong, the campaign places the collection’s signature styles in the forefront of an aesthetic, atmospheric set, featuring a range of objects that elevate the everyday. Each style ushers past elegance into the present with a thoroughly modern, minimalist feel.
