An Afternoon Tea With QWSTION & TACS @ Carcosa Seri Negara

So there I was last week over at Carcosa Seri Negara for a breezy afternoon high-tea session sampling delectable desserts and sweets amid the colonial confines of this heritage rich building. Why was I there? While models mingled with those in attendance, we were introduced to the to the pairing of QWSTION and TACS products as part of the repertoire in one’s daily ensemble.

Sometimes less is truly more, and two international labels that embodies this notion are Swiss luggage makers QWSTION and Japanese timepiece manufacturers TACS. Both are known for conceptualising products that emphasize functionality with unassuming aesthetics that are often timeless and stylish.

TACS’ oriental focus is on discernment and determining interesting aspects in everyday life that eventually shapes one’s personal taste. Taste, Attractive, Creative and Sense that compose the brand’s core essence that is a connection to our contemporary lifestyle – one can find quirky elements in the shape of a fragrant soap or the lens of a film camera inspiring the TACS’ creations.

Appropriately, the Tea Time collection is a headliner in the brand’s stable and along with Hobby Time and along with Hobby Time and Fun Time, there’s something for both the minimalist and the life hacker.

QWSTION, on the other hand, is looking to bridge the gap between form and function by creating stylish storage solutions for those whose modern lifestyles demand that they are able to transition seamlessly from their commute to the boardroom. And yet, be suitable for use by both mobile corporate and creative types. QWSTION’s latest are made from organic cotton materials and feature minimal branding at price points that favours a resilient construct over bells and whistles.

The brand has applied the same the same minimalist philosophy and meticulous process to each hybrid products that defy categorization, occupying a niche between high fashion and functional utility. Each bag works for business as well as for leisure, using a signature canvas of natural fabrics such as cotton, hemp and linen, with vegetable-tanned leather handles that darken and weather nicely over time. Such natural materials tend to have irregularities, giving each bag its unique character.
