Play­ful chic

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Style -

Khoon Hooi’s op­u­lent Aidil­fitri col­lec­tion calls to mind the sparkle of semi-pre­cious stones. It also high­lights trends like the off-shoul­der look, crys­tal buck­les, over­sized bows and ex­ag­ger­ated cuffs.

Rich fab­ri­ca­tions such as bro­cade, silk taffeta, chif­fon and crepe work to add drama to the looks. They how­ever, still come in tra­di­tional sil­hou­ettes like the baju ku­rung teluk be­langa and ku­rung Kedah.

“It is a mod­ern take on vin­tage oc­ca­sion-wear. We aim to set our­selves apart from the usual Raya trends of bell sleeves and pe­plum cuts,” notes Khoon Hooi, on his cre­ative di­rec­tion.
