KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Playing host to major design houses, Starhill Gallery Fashion Week never fails to surprise. And this year, our fashion senses went all tingly for local delights.
Celest Thoi, Nurita Harith and Syomir Izwa took centre stage on a Friday night, and we were hard-pressed to pick a favourite. Thoi’s interpretation of the art of Edo Komon was interesting but difficult to translate into daily life; and Harith and Izwa enthralled us with a journey back in time.
This pint-sized talent brought a sophisticated flair to the runway with her Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Inspired by Georgia Hamilton, these elegant pieces with romantic draping and strategic bias cuts were a force to be reckoned with.
It’s a gorgeous collection that screams high society but requires a flawless body type to carry it off. So it’s not one for the masses, but that doesn’t change the fact that we find each piece to be a spectacular work of art in itself.
Working with a more autumnal palette than we would expect from a Spring/Summer collection, these unforgivingly tailored beauties are found in shades of blush, ochre and wine.
Check out the slideshow below for more pieces by Harith.
Inspired by Yoko Ono in her heyday, Syomir Izwa presents his edgiest collection yet. Perfectly suited to the season, his collection features gorgeous bursts of colour with a 60’s-70’s flavour.
Feminine yet powerful, it’s an eye-catching collection that is still very wearable. From flowing full-length gowns, to bold jumpsuits, it’s a collection that everyone will find something in.
There’s a timeless element to each of Izwa’s retro-styled pieces. They would be at home in your wardrobe throughout the year as they can be paired with more muted pieces you already own.
To catch a glimpse of the rest of Izwa’s collection, check out the gallery.
While Harith’s collection spoke to the beauty that draped, gorgeous fabric exudes over the perfect female form; Izwa gives us a collection for the everyday woman. You may not like Yoko Ono, but you cannot deny that her clothing was always envy-inducing. – The Binge
