Michaela Fass, VP of Fashion at Smiley said, “Smiley continues to expand its global brand presence with a carefully curated 22-piece assortment with South East Asia's on-trend fast fashion brand Pomelo. Tie-dye patterns and influences of 90’s nostalgia come together to demonstrate both brands' positive ethos. We are extremely proud to have collaborated on this confident and fun collection.”
The Pomelo x Smiley capsule collection is comprised of 22 pieces, from t-shirts, sweatshirts, skirts, and dresses. The tie-dye pattern, created exclusively by Pomelo’s in-house designers, pay tribute to ‘90s pop culture and expressive streetwear. This is featured on selected pieces in the collection, with the rest adorned with the iconic smiley face trademark. In line with Smiley and Pomelo’s ethos for spreading positivity and fun, the street wear-style pieces feature playful graphics making the collection wearable, upbeat and fresh.
