Tiffany Chng, Co-founder of cheak said, “To celebrate this milestone, we are rebranding butter. to cheak, which was chosen to play on the word ‘cheeky’ and represent our brands’ vibrant personas. Every element of cheak has been carefully chosen to represent the ambitious female active persona — strong and confident, mindful, and knows how to have a little fun along the way.”

cheak builds upon butter.’s signature design philosophies with an expanded range of activewear thoughtfully designed with Asian sensibilities in terms of fit, colours, climate and sports activities. The first collection includes a total of 12 styles (sports bras, leggings and biker shorts), seven inclusive sizes from XXS to XXL, and 13 colours, with eight colours available on Love, Bonito.

The activewear collection features signature elevated basics and trendy pieces that are designed with intention in mind. Chosen based on selected sports activities, the apparels are available in two fabrics, namely BaseCore® and BaseFlex®.

The BaseCore® range is optimised for high-intensity activities like HIIT, spinning and running, providing enhanced support and sweat-wicking properties to stay cool and dry post-workout. Meanwhile, BaseFlex® is made to be ultra-soft and silky smooth for low-intensity activities such as yoga, pilates and barre due to the stretchier and buttery-soft touch of the fabric.

Early access is available on 20 October, on Love, Bonito’s Global Website and Love, Bonito Singapore’s ION store for Gold and Silver members. The public launch goes live on 21 October, on both Love, Bonito and cheak’s website as well as across all Love, Bonito stores in Singapore. Love, Bonito also ships to 20 countries worldwide (free shipping threshold applies). Prices range from SGD50 to SGD79.
