Believe it or not – Ramadan is less than a week away! As another season of Eid during the pandemic approaches, we can’t help but reflect on last year’s celebration and how we tried to make the best of it even when we couldn’t balik kampung. This year, however, feels slightly different as we’ve been adapting to the new normal and staying optimistic in hopes of celebrating the festivities with our loved ones again.

Adding to that optimism are all the Raya collections we’re seeing left, right and centre – and boy, are we excited! From luxurious fabrics to comfy, functional styles, the new launches we’ve discovered not only add a touch of happiness we all want to feel this year but also encapsulate the new way of life we’re leading. With that, here are seven of our favourite releases worth checking out:

1. Alia Bastamam Eid 2021 Collection

As Alia Bastamam celebrates her 10th anniversary this year, the designer revisited signature pieces in the past as inspiration for her latest Eid collection. Breathing new life into 14 designs and introducing five new ones, the line prioritises comfort and versatility not just for Hari Raya but also for the days beyond! Using smooth and flowy fabrics like liquid satin and silk crepe paired with fine crystal, bead and pearl embellishments, each piece is truly a beauty on its own.

2. Anaabu ‘Rindu’ Collection

Keeping it comfortable and practical with light, earthy colours, Anaabu’s gender-neutral ‘Rindu’ collection is perfect for those with a soft spot for simplicity with a subtle twist. As traditional styles take on loose silhouettes with stripes, plaids and embroidery, the line is modernised with minimal cuts and detailing on pockets and necklines.
