There is always a love affair between those beautiful layers of soft silk and the dazzling sparkles of the jewellery, gem stones, combining the best of both world, one could find it at the recent Selberan's Songket Reinvented Collection, jewellery by Comyns and the Royal Selangor featuring Alia Bastaman's Raya Collection showcase! What more, this is the perfect pairing since Hari Raya Aidilfitri is just around the corner. It is most definitely a celebration in style and comfort chic.
In the spirit of the raya, Selberan has released a limited edition series of the original Songket Collection (launched last last year), retaining its original intricate designs and influences from the South East Asian fabric but with the addition of a burst of colours.
The pieces from this collection features blue and orange sapphires, rubies and green tsavorite in 18k gold and white gold. These specially selected coloured gem stones and carefully handcrafted by Selberan's artisans each has a special meaning which corresponds with the Holy Raya festivities. At the heart of the Songket pendant lies a blue sapphire which is said to be a symbol of loyalty and devotion towards close family and friends.
The Songket Reinvited Collection feature everyday wearable pieces as well as sophisticated designs for the evenings and those special occasions. For this Raya festive season, Alia Bastaman, yet again, wowed the audience with elegant and chic Raya pieces with luxurious materials and simple cuts and silhouettes - her signature white wrap-top with lace cuffs and mermaid-cut skirt, all in crepe silk, modern baju kurung in shantung silk, baju kurung Kedah top in silk with a panel of hand-women silk Ikat from Uzbekistan, worn with a French crepe sarong, amongst others, all looking very divinely feminine.
We also love the modern baju kurung in crepe silk with embroidered chiffon and lace panels piece. The pieces from the Songket Reinvited Collection went really well with Alia Bastaman's collection showcased that day, complimented one another to create a seamless feel, yet add a touch of Asian glamour to anyone who adorns them. Lovely indeed *_^
The event was graced by some dignitaries, socialites, media friends and fans alike. All in all, it looked like a beautiful event. All pictures courtesy of Selberan. More of the brand here and more of Alia Bastaman's latest raya collection here. Till next time, have a great week ahead!
