Melinda Looi’s latest ready-to-wear Raya collection ‘4Seasons Aidilfitri’ captures the season’s colours in full glory. The whites of winter, the bursts of bright colours of spring. The lush greens of summer and the warm russets of fall. The four seasons bring with them the whole gamut of colours, from the palest of lights to the deepest of dark, rich hues.
The seasons, to the designer, represent the cycle of life – from birth to growth and then regeneration. Inspired by poetry of the seasons, Melinda Looi has produced a collection that captures all the beauty and joy of our existence.
Colours of the Four Seasons revels in our limitless potential to change, to evolve from one state to another, seamlessly, effortlessly. The 12 designs in the collection are soft and fluid, yet there is also a sense of strength denoting the ability to overcome adversity and start anew, refreshed, rejuvenated, like a butterfly emerging from the chrysalis. The materials used complement the idea of fluidity, in the softest fabrics of chiffon, printed georgette, crepe, embroidered organza and lace. With this collection, the designer hopes all Malaysians will embrace the spirit of friendship, unity and charity that are celebrated at Raya – not just during Raya but throughout the seasons, throughout the world.
‘4Seasons Adilfitri’ is exclusively available at Parkson Pavilion KL (4th Floor) with prices for sets ranging from RM849- RM1,399.
