A MOD­ERN KIND OF RAYA

Female (Malaysia) - - COLOUR CRASH COURSE -

Hari Raya is fast ap­proach­ing and with lo­cal de­sign­ers re­leas­ing their gor­geous col­lec­tions, we know ex­actly how to make the tra­di­tional look last all year long. Since de­sign­ers stayed true to their roots by com­bin­ing tra­di­tional and mod­ern el­e­ments in their col­lec­tions, there’s room to style your picks in your own way. With a mod­ernised touch to these baju ku­rungs, try wear­ing them as sep­a­rates. For in­stance, take the skirt away and rock the blouse with your favourite jeans or palazzo pants.

This year, Zalora has col­lab­o­rated with mul­ti­ple de­sign­ers ex­clu­sively but we’re high­light­ing our faves from Alia Bas­ta­mam, nh by Nu­rita Harith and Sy­om­i­rizwa Gupta. Alia has taken rich el­e­ments from ori­en­tal flo­ral prints with clas­sic batik pat­terns to en­sure a time­less chic sil­hou­ette in her col­lec­tion (we love the pas­tel hues and pearl em­bel­lish­ments too!). Nu­rita used her sig­na­ture drap­ing and pas­tel hues through­out – el­e­gant and fem­i­nine are the words we’d use to de­scribe the pieces. Sy­om­i­rizwa chose to pay trib­ute to the life and work of Sin­ga­pore’s first-ever First Lady, Toh Puan Noor Aishah, with the sig­na­ture ke­baya and batik with a twist (think polka dots, vi­brant red and or­anges with em­broi­dery!). These col­lec­tions are avail­able on­line now at zalora.com.my, rang­ing between RM529 to RM745.
