ALIA BASTAMAM

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Style -

What are some of your in­spi­ra­tions for this col­lec­tion? The faded blush and pinks were in­spired by a photo I took of flamin­gos at a di­lap­i­dated bird park but the woman I re­ally wanted to cap­ture was some­one glam­orously ec­cen­tric like Aus­tralian stylist Cather­ine Baba and silent-film star Theda Bara. Fa­vorite col­lec­tions this sea­son? Raf Si­mons is do­ing amaz­ing things at Dior at the mo­ment, and I love Dries Van Noten’s ease, and how he mixes it up with glam­our. Ca­reer path you would like to fol­low? Al­ber El­baz. Ever since he was ap­pointed, he’s cre­ated an in­stantly at­trac­tive and recog­nis­able aes­thetic for Lanvin. He also does re­ally strong col­lab­o­ra­tions. If you could show at an in­ter­na­tional fash­ion week, which would it be? Paris is the ul­ti­mate, but I’d love to show in New York first. It’s a good mix of sal­able ready-to-wear and in­no­va­tive new­ness. Per­fect pieces to wear with your col­lec­tion? Zan­otti gold pumps or nude, un­fussy heels. Rau­wolf has amaz­ing clutches, and Dolce & Gab­bana’s be­jew­elled head­bands are gor­geous.
