With the Hari Raya festivities coming up this Sunday, preparations for the celebration are in full swing. And though this year’s Hari Raya isn’t the same because of the Circuit Breaker — we can still celebrate the occasion with our loved ones at home.
We know, you won’t be visiting any of your relatives this year but it wouldn’t hurt to dress up and keep the convivial spirit during the festivities now wouldn’t it? Now that you’ve got your Raya cookies stocked up, it’s time to consider your outfit. From your traditional baju kurungs to bold, sequinned kebaya silhouettes, here are some fashion labels that you can consider for your last-minute Hari Raya shopping.
Modest wear label, Lúbna, has just unveiled their latest Raya collection that pays homage to traditional silhouettes that have undergone a modern twist. Heavily inspired by the art of flower pressing, this year’s Lúbna Raya range sees a delicate and meticulous touch to its designs — presenting a collection that’s playful yet timeless.
Aside from its flower pressing elements, they also offer other styles that boast designs embellished with bold sequins and beads, as well as bold prints, pastel hues and vibrant coloured options to choose from.
Lúbna Raya 2020 Collection is available at Zalora.
It’s all about going back to your roots with ZALIA’s Raya 2020 Collection. Taking inspiration from the rich landscapes of the Ocean Odyssey, the modest wear label’s collection zooms in on deep jewel tones complimented by delicate sequin pieces, alongside other styles that reflect dusty pastels and intricate florals for something classy and modern.
ZALIA Raya 2020 Collection is available on Zalora.
