It’s already mid-Ramadhan, and you’ve yet to find the Raya outfit? Don’t panic just yet; we’ve got you covered with our hot list of brands that will surely have the outfit you’re looking for, and then some.
1. Khoon Hooi
It might be too late to get the elegant bespoke pieces to wear on the first day of Raya, but Khoon Hooi’s ready-to-wear capsule collection remedies that with a timeless, floral flair.
The capsule’s oriental inspirations are evidenced by the use of traditional Mandarin band collars, jade buttons, and an ensemble that takes cue from the Japanese kimono. Those elements are then juxtaposed with the Baju Kedah cut and the kebaya silhouette to make for an intriguing Raya outfit.
Each of the five designs is offered in two colour variations, which should make for a straightforward decision.
2. Baju by Oniatta
Don’t we all just love a classic with a fresh twist?
Just in time for Raya, Singapore’s Baju by Oniatta released a 21-piece exclusive collection named “Lingkaran” featuring Batik tulis and Batik cap textiles. Pictured here is Oniatta herself, rocking a piece from the Poetry Edition of the Lingkaran collection. She pairs it with a white silk kebaya kutubaru, a multi-way piece that can be styled up to four different ways!
The collection comes in a rainbow of colours, and Baju by Oniatta offers multiple tops to match the Lingkaran pieces. Create your own personalised look by mixing and matching to your heart’s content.
3. Oh Sebenar
Homegrown brand Oh Sebenar captures the real essence of how a Raya morning looks like through the release of its Raya collection. “Sebenarnya”—meaning ‘truthfully’—is a collection that focuses on comfort for the day, with its use of breathable cotton linen and breezy fit. The desaturated hues of earth tones, on the other hand, make any of their designs an effortless look to pull off.
A proud champion of inclusivity, Oh Sebenar’s Raya collection has a wide range of sizes, from UK 6 to UK 28.
4. Rizman Ruzaini
If you like what you see, then we suggest you hit checkout stat. Some designs from Rizman Ruzaini’s Luxe Raya collection are already sold out, and for good reason.
Made to turn heads in a (socially distanced) family gathering, the pieces from this collection will definitely bring the drama. Featuring opulent embellishments and rich jewel-toned shades, his designs are created for maximum glamorous impact.
If standing out in a crowd is the goal, then any one of Rizman Ruzaini’s creation is the way to go.
5. Jovian Mandagie
Subtle, yet effective.
Jovian Mandagie’s long-awaited Raya collection is here. This time around, the central elements are the soft pastel colours and fine detailing with an infusion of Jovian’s modern take on traditional Batik motifs. The outfits are made out of carefully selected printed heavy crepe, which allows for a graceful drape.
Even better, these Raya outfits—donned by none other than Daiyan Trisha—will come in sizes for children. The full launch is coming soon, so keep an eye out for it!
