Flabjacks is a universe of cute and fun characters illustrated by Ton Mak. What began as escapist doodles quickly turned into its own fully formed world - a world of unique and odd folk, and of quirky inanimate thingymajigs brought to life! Ton grew up nomadically between New Zealand and United Kingdom. Initially introduced to art as a form of therapy by her mother at an early age, she has been drawing and painting for as long as she could remember. She graduated from University College London with a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology. To date, Flabjacks has collaborated with top brands such as Gucci, Swatch, Apple, Nike and making its distinctive and colourful mark throughout Asia, Europe and the US.

“ONLY has always believed in experimenting with something new and fun! Over the years, the brand has worked on some cool limited-edition collaborations, and it has always resonated well with our audience,” says Vineet Gautam, Country Head, BESTSELLER India. “ONLY’s DNA is all about being cool, young and carefree, which blends perfectly with FLABJACKS! Excited to be the first one to launch this limited-edition collection in India.”

The carefree nature of the illustrations complements the laid back styles of the garments, which include dresses, jogger-style trousers, crop tops and denim. Together, both brands have identified distinct prints that pair perfectly with the brand's ethos, resulting in a cool and understated yet strong collection that can be dressed up or down.
The new collection is available at stores and online at www.only.in.
Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.
Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.
It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.
