Aloha! by Jovian Mandagie
For the 8th year running, Jovian Mandagie launches his 2019 Raya Collection in collaboration with ZALORA.
On a breezy afternoon high up on the 34th floor of the Alila Hotel Kuala Lumpur, the poolside had been transformed into a tropical fashion oasis where guests were eagerly anticipating the presentation of Aloha – a modern Kebaya and Kurung Collection consisting of 22 looks by prominent Malaysian Designer Jovian Mandagie for ZALORA as part of the #ZALORAYA2019 Season.
“I can’t believe we are going to have our 8th show with ZALORA this year. In this collection, you can expect bold prints, vibrant motifs, and a mixture of colors that are fun, stylish and lively. I believe that this collection will make a bright addition to all of our Jovianista’s wardrobe.” – Dato’ Jovian Mandagie, Creative Director
True to description, the collection introduces modern mini Kurung silhouettes, wrap dresses and draped skirts that are detailed with ruffles, piping, lace and ribbons. Construction comes in the form of poly crepe, chiffon, satin, cotton, and polyester; dipped in vivid tones of blue, turquoise, warm gray, pearly peach, peony pink, carmine red, mustard, sage to olive green.
A collection will not be complete without a strong visual reference and to evoke the tropical fantasy that this collection aspired to be, the campaign was shot at the Four Seasons Resort Langkawi. The resort is flanked by a tropical rainforest, limestone cliffs and the emerald waters of the Andaman Sea perfectly distilled the spirit of the carefree collection.
Items from the Aloha Collection ranges from RM460 to RM560 in XS to XL sizes. Love it? Then get it HERE!
