If you haven't sorted out your Raya outfits this year (why though?); here are 5 local designers and brands you should consider: from classic baju melayu to batik-printed shirts.
Last minute shopping? Here are some ideas.
This henna printed kurta is definitely a statement piece. With its regular fitting, you can stuff as much lemang as possible at your next open house.
Wear this linen, stripe-y baju melayu with a tailored trousers for formal occasions and pair it down with a pair of jeans and sandals for casual business.
The subtle, polka dot top with an ornate is going to set you apart from the thousand of shiny satin-looking baju melayu this year.
For those who're a little bit more adventurous, go for Atelier Fittion's baju melayu with details on the sleeves and the bottom. It's a classy touch without succumbing the traditional silhouette.
You can't go wrong with this classic baju melayu in royal blue. But what we really like is the pleated details on the cekak musang collar. Plus, you can even go matchy-matchy with your son.
If you're looking for something a little different, consider this modern kurta (although it looks more like baju melayu to us?) with shortened proportion and wider sleeves in textured fabric.
The textured top with pocket details is a versatile piece you can wear it even after Raya.
For casual days out, Tarik Jean's batik shirts (made from premium cotton bland) are your best bet. Wear it with a pair of jeans for extra cool points.
