Brian KHOO Review • Cherry Blossom Cream Lunar New Year Look

January 24, 2023

Hi guys, today I'll be sharing all about this Cherry Blossom look I had for Chinese New Year, as well as my thoughts and review on this piece from Brian KHOO.

If you missed it, I actually bought a piece from Brian Khoo last year and posted my review here on my blog.

I didn't have the chance to drop by and check out the Lunar 2023 collection, and I also didn't really manage to get any pieces. A lot of factors went into skipping, but long story short, I didn't manage to cop anything.

If you read my previous post, you'd have seen that I tried on the goldfish shirt from their previous Lunar collection:

I really liked it, and it actually came with a sister shirt with cherry blossoms instead:

My friend Darren previously bought this shirt and offered to lend it to me, and since I liked the look of it, I decided to try it out and wear it for a full day.

2 things to note:

1. The price of this shirt last year was RM500, but it's currently listed on the website at RM760. I think the prices must have been adjusted recently.

2. It came with matching shorts which I also borrowed from my friend!

Since I technically didn't purchase these products I can't really talk about whether or not if it's a worth it purchase, but I guess I'll tackle it from a "would I pay for this" angle instead.

First off, I love anything beige, and this set was a nice shade of cream/off-white. It complimented my tan skin well and at first glance, the set looks very pleasing to the eye.

The shirt I'm wearing is in the size L, and I think it looks just right. Not too small/fitting, just the perfect amount of flow. Because of the cutting, it's not the most flattering from the front (I feel), but I think it's partly because it's just an open shirt/not tucked in.

However, I didn't mind the untucked relaxed look. It's very casual and CNY-appropriate in my opinion: very hassle-free.

The material is listed on the website as 94% Polyester, 6% Spandex. I cannot stress how nice it felt and how smooth/silky it was! It didn't crease much (if any at all, I don't think I saw any creases by the end of the day).

It irks me when smooth shirts get creases in them, and I'm glad to report that this shirt was smooth and pretty all day long.

I went out to take pics in the hot Malaysian sun, and it was lightweight/comfy.

My only feedback would be that the shorts' pockets were slightly shallow, and my stuff kept falling out. The slit wasn't too revealing and the length was perfect in my opinion.

Overall, I really love this look and I regret not buying the blue goldfish version I saw last year. Hopefully I manage to drop by Brian Khoo's studio soon and manage to find it. Fingers crossed!

Would I buy this myself? Absolutely. As the second Brian Khoo piece I wore the whole day, I'm still impressed and happy with the quality. If I compare it with Behati's pieces, there is no comparison at all: Brian Khoo's materials are much better. There are also no loose threads, wonky stitching or itchy feelings.

And that's it for this review! I hope you guys found this post helpful and informative. 

See y'all in my next post!
