For his very first forray in Asia, New York-based fashion designer Jason Wu will be launching an Asia-exclusive collection through his subsidiary brand, GREY Jason Wu.
We flew to Malaysia for the exclusive media launch and learned that the designer partnered up with Sometime by Asian Designers, a bag specialist company that regularly teams up and co-designs with Asian designers.
"What I hope in the next few years is for designers and fellow Asian companies to come into prominence globally because everybody knows we [Asians] know how to buy bags, but what they don't know is we know how to make and design bags," Jason said.

The bags will be sold online on ZALORA and will only be available in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Hong Kong.
Okay, so we're sure the question on everyone's mind is, "What do the bags look like?" Unfortunately, you'll have to wait till June for the collection to be revealed, but we heard that the totes are unisex, and will be available in different sizes and colors.
