Raya 2016: Get your accessory game on from these homegrown labels
Not that we are complaining—we are all for the food and festivities that come with it, and of course, not forgetting to dress up for the occasion! When you've got your festive garbs (something from these beautiful raya collections, perhaps?) ready, complete the look with a couple of snazzy acessories from our favourite homegrown labels:
Since making her debut in 2012, it is safe to say that Nelissa Hilman has become a household name when it comes to contemporary footwear for the modern, sophisticated woman. We love her extremely wearable, versatile designs, whether it is heels for work or flats for off-duty days. For Raya, the tasselled Alexa sandals are sitting high on our wishlist.
2. Yoke & Theam
Yoke & Theam may be fairly new to the scene, but they sure aren't pulling back on the punches when it comes to sturdy, well-made footwear. The label is run by two sisters who come from a family with a long history in shoe making. They are known for their stylish and comfortable sandals with a sporty flair—so you know where to look when it comes to comfy kicks for the festive season.
No two clutches from Azooi are the same: each artisanal piece from Azooi is carefully created by way of painting, shell laying and carving, deeming them unique and one-of-a-kind. Featuring beautiful, exquisite designs, the silhouettes for the clutches are left clean and simple, jus the way we like them.
If you have a penchant for quality leather accessories, you will find plenty to love at Thirtyfour. The brand takes pride in its remarkable craftsmanship and dedication to working with leather, producing sleek and timeless bespoke pieces that are made to last.
For a glorious pop of colour in our getup in the form of a hair accessory, we look to Sereni & Shentel. No short of fun and a touch of whimsy, their headbands range from tasteful bejewelled pieces to striking bow designs, perfect for a demure but statement look.
6. Dipped Row
Dipped Row is a great place to find pretty trinkets without breaking the bank. Style and quality come hand-in-hand in their jewellery, which emcompasses necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings and brooches - that's practically everything a girl needs in her jewellery box! Our favourite pieces hail from the necklace section, we think they've nailed the layered design with finesse.
Specialising in statement accessories, The Extra Piece creates edgy, unique pieces that are made to stand out in a crowd. If you're looking to go with a simple baju kurung or kebaya, jazz up your look with a bold necklace or perhaps a stunning pair of drop earrings.
