Quanda Ong, Founder of Tiger Beer’s newest Uncage personality was unsatisfied with his nine-to-five job in a private banking sector. With the help of family and friends as well as a successful crowd-funding appeal in 2013, his brand, Gnome & Bow was born.
Being an independent designer, he was able to bring exciting opportunities and personal journeys into his designs, telling them like fairytales. His current collection, inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde helped draw inspirations and allowed him to explore and reinterpret the idea of duality change and acceptance.
Crafting a cardholder exclusively for Tiger Beer, Quanda Ong was able to create a design that represents a whimsical, unique look for the holder that also speaks of one’s submission to societal norms.
Together with Tiger UNCAGE, Gnome & Bow brings you their second collection that stands testament to the Founder’s vision to weave stories into his leather creations. Tiger Beer celebrates the passion of Gnome & Bow, featuring Quanda Ong as its latest Tiger Uncage personality.
The collection that is once again designed to showcase Gnome & Bow’s pursuit for classic, elegant aesthetics whilst embracing the art of storytelling is available from 28 November 2014 on gnomenbow.com and selected stockists from SGD125 onwards. The exclusively designed Tiger UNCAGE x Gnome & Bow cardholder will be available for sale at Keepers: Singapore Designer Collective and on gnomenbow.com.
