VIN + MIN THEN
vin + min is a Singapore-based resort wear label, started in Hong Kong by besties, Vinima & Andrea. The label was inspired by its founders’ similarities, individuality, & great passion for fashion. vin + min’s effortlessly elegant resort wear pieces are a modern twist on the classic and timeless kaftan. Distinguished from the rest by their carefully curated fabrics & embellishments, vin + min's kaftans are undoubtedly glamorous by design. Their slow fashion model and limited production of each style also make each of their versatile pieces one-of-a-kind.
VIN + MIN NOW
vin + min is now run solely by Andrea, who relocated back to Singapore in 2018. Always striving live purposefully and with a huge heart for others, Andrea transitioned vin + min to a not-for-profit brand in September 2020. Bali, a place so dear to her, and also where vin + min's designs are produced, has been ravaged by Covid19. As so many have lost their jobs due to the complete downturn of tourism in Bali, Andrea has connected the brand with a local church organization, and together they work to provide bi-weekly food bags called "Sembako" to 30 families in the Benoa community. How amazing is it that the purchase of 1 women's kaftan can help to feed 2 families of 4 for a month?
WHAT IS SEMBAKO?
"Sembako" a shortened form of the phrase for “nine essentials”, which in Bahasa Indonesia is "Sem"bilan "ba"han po"ko"k. Sembako packages are historically known to contain the 9 must-have (and very basic) food and household items that every home needs including, rice, eggs, milk, oil, soap and so on. Our food distribution team in Bali lovingly assembles Sembako packages for 30 families on a bi-weekly basis. Most times, the families come to the distribution centre in Jimbaran to pick up their food supplies, but on occasion, the team sets out on scooters to do deliveries around Bali.
