Just in time for the upcoming Raya season, earlier this month, ZALORA unveiled Rizalman for ZALORA – the latest collection that celebrates renowned designer Rizalman Ibrahim’s design sensibility and influence over the years.
Rizalman’s signature form-fitting cuts and elegant ‘kurungs’ take center stage in this collection, as the designer presents new and fresh ideas to traditional dressing for the festive season and every day. Embellishments are kept minimal, as Rizalman focuses on the use of beautiful and innovative fabrics to elevate the charm of each piece. Jersey, lace, crepe silk and georgette silk are used generously in addition to laces and metallic elements that create an old-world sophistication that only Rizalman could have recreated.
The collection was presented at the Rizalman for ZALORA fashion show at the sophisticated DEWAN. A screening of “Pulang” – a short film directed by Rizalman opened the event. Shot in scenic Terengganu, it stars local film heavyweights Ogy Ahmad Daud, Datin Marlia Musa and Wan Hanafi Su. Rizalman himself played the lead role in the movie supported by his two sons,Umar and Aali. Rizalman examines the topics of love and forgiveness in the film, an apt conversation for the upcoming Aidilfitri season.
2016 also marked the debut of RizalMEN, the designer’s first menswear collection. Comprising of classic cuts with a modern twist, pieces in the collection can be worn freely at festive occasions or part of one’s everyday wardrobe. ‘Jubah’, ‘baju melayu’, kaftans, shirts and t-shirts, sweaters and jumpers in a variety of colors and prints make up the strong collection that is sure to attract any male fashion enthusiast looking for clothing with a difference.
The latest Rizalman for ZALORA collection is now available on ZALORA website and mobile app.
