Ramadan is well underway, and you know what that means––it's finally time to start planning your festive outfits! After two years of celebrating Eid in the midst of a pandemic, only the best of the best will do for this year's comeback and who better than our local designers to help us on this mission? From Alia Bastamam to Khoon Hooi, many of our industry heavyweights have launched their Eid 2022 collections ahead of festivities, introducing luxe takes on the 'baju Raya' with striking silhouettes, bold colours and intricate embellishments that'll have heads turning. 

Read on to see what's in store for Raya this year, and bookmark this page to keep up with all the latest collections as they drop:

Alia Bastamam 

Alia Bastamam continues to push the envelope for Raya design and dressing with an Eid 2022 collection that segues seamlessly from Raya to Resort. Signature Alia silhouettes are rendered in bold colours and clean lines that take reference from the designer’s background in architecture, as well as the compelling figurative works of artist Rosie McGuiness. Alongside sarong ensembles and three-piece looks that go from modest to a bikini coverup, the 24-look collection is grounded in a modern-traditional sensibility to introduce key looks like the Sweater-cut Kurung, a Kurung Kedah top with keyhole details and raglan sleeves in vivid pleats.

Khoon Hooi

For Raya this year, Khoon Hooi has created a bespoke collection of festive collection that celebrates the culture of protagonist Datin Lee with a contemporary twist. In tribute to her part-Nyonya roots, the eponymous designer unveils an array of printed Baju Kebayas embellished with brooches in the form of florals and safety pins, alongside a selection of statement-making pieces perfect for the social season. Silhouettes draw from tradition while striking details give each look the wow factor, from bold hues of fuschia and red to black-on-black, to fluffy feathers, dramatic puff sleeves and intricate crystal embellishments peppered over the bodice.

Innai Red 

Named 'Majestic Raya', Innai Red's latest Raya Luxe collection is fit for royalty. This year, the brand drew inspiration from The Majestic Malacca, a hotel rich with tapestry of multicultural influences that's reflected in its heritage architecture, to bring classic motifs and modern ideas together in true Innai Red form. Think lustrous brocades and intricate embellishments punctuated by strong modern curves across a feminine palette of sweet pastels and deep jewel tones.

Rizman Ruzaini

Looking for something luxe but a bit more minimalist? Rizman Ruzaini's luxe Raya collection is your answer. Available on a pre-order basis, the collection radiates classic elegance with a tinge of romance across muted monochrome shades and rich fabrics. Shawl-on-shoulder ensembles are accentuated by lace sleeves and pleated skirts, while puff sleeves bring a touch of character to the traditional straight-cut Kurung Pahang. Then there's also the Sebine, an eye-catching hot-pink ensemble with exquisite floral bead detailing on the sleeves.
