What began as a simple hobby for childhood friends Kaye and Keyt has now become a booming business for these innovative entrepreneurs. From clothes, to accessories, and now venturing into shoes, Chimera carries a wide array of products that are eye-candy and easy on the pocket.
But there's more to Chimera than just being hip and trendy. Their merchandise, are in fact made from old clothes, vintage accessories, and even materials that some might consider as junk. By revamping and restyling old clothes, upcycling and modifying vintage accessories with a modern twist, and using locally-sourced man-made materials, Chimera proves to be a staunch advocate of green living and eco-friendliness.
For instance, old and unwanted pairs of denims showcased in the Braided and Jeans Collection. Tattered and torn denims (and perhaps no longer fit) are transformed into something as pretty as these.
A headband, a foreband, a bracelet... these braided jeans are actually quite versatile. You can wear them how you want it, any way you want it.
Then there's the Alambre Art Collection - fashion accessories made from the humble tie-wire. And so they say one man's junk is another man's treasure!
These tie-wires can also be found in other Chimera accessories, such as these dainty rings.
Wires were used to bind the beads together. (The very reason why they're called 'tie-wires'.)
Aside from these, Chimera also produces clothes, bags, and shoes. They carry a bunch of other cute and quirky stuff too, such as Korean stamp sets, cable winders, and even the Magic Egg. All these and more are found in Chimera's Facebook page and Multiply site.
Oh, and in case you're wondering if there's a giveaway coming soon, YES there is! (If you're a regular reader of my blog, then I know you know the drill, haha!)
I have the privilege of working with Chimera for my next blog event, the Fun in the Sun Giveaway which goes live come June 3rd. There'll be a bunch of assorted Chimera merchandise up for grabs, including an Usamimi-inspired Twist Headband ala Park Min Young! (More popularly known as Kim Nana in City Hunter.)
So, if you're a fan of the drama, or would like to channel your inner Kim Nana (lol), or simply want to win some cool eco-friendly stuff, mark your calendars and be sure to check out my blog and social media pages from time to time. June 3, folks! :)
