Chic in gold and black, from the Alia Bastamam Evening Cruise 2014 collection.
The Alia Bastamam Evening Cruise 2014 collection is all about relaxed glamour.
THE latest Alia Bastamam collection features a selection of ready-to-wear pieces (all of which are produced in-house from the atelier) and some made-to-measure evening gowns.
The line features Miss Universe Malaysia 2013 Carey Ng for the campaign. Entirely photographed in the “evening room” and “main hall” of the new showroom, one could say the current muse oozed exoticism, perfectly playing the part of the Alia Bastamam girl.
Oriental and Asian influences were seen in the outfits like a bold floral printed caftan in navy and blood red as well as a cheongsam-inspired look in black and bronze.
The collection also includes the updated sweater-cut top, first seen in the Bridal 2013 collection; this time with more rounded organza sleeves and a crepe silk body with arranged embellishments or embroidered with the Nazar eye.
Another key look is the endearingly named “kemban dress” – a strapless column dress inspired by a sarong wrapped around the body – in hot pink and bright blue that flashes through its otherwise moody tones.
The collection is currently available at the Alia Bastaman showroom at 14 Jalan Chempenai, Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur.
