Why you need to tell all your minimalist style-conscious guy friends about Hatta Dolmat’s Raya 2016 collection for men?
I don’t know where I’ve been but I’ve only recently found out about a Malaysian fashion designer that’s been in the hot couture fashion scene from the mid 2000s and was so wowed not by the usual women’s designs but his men’s Raya 2016 collection.
Even though I am no man and write rare pieces of men’s designer collections for Eid 2016, Hatta Dolmat’s minimalist jubah and kurta sets are a breath of fresh air well, mostly because I’m quite biased to the fuss-free designs and neutral color palettes which are both alive and kicking in his creations.
If your man (partner/boyfriend/hubbie) is looking for his Raya outfit and you happen to know that his love for minimalistic looks are quite real and you’re the designated shopper for his clothes because you love online shopping so much, then be a darling and grab a hold of Hatta’s sophisticated pieces that will surely make him stand out. But not without finding out if his into kurta or jubah.
One of the main reasons that I choose to highlight Hatta’s jubah collection is to put forward that men do wear long cultural ‘dress-like’ garment and still have their manliness intact. So much of the controversy of men in skirts being perceived as gender-bending in the Western world can be hushed if we’re open to a new perspective that perhaps, men have loved long flowy garment when temperature requires to be considered and practicality governs the issue of dressing.
The middle-eastern inspired jubah by Hatta Dolmat dips into the Arabian style flair while the modern aspects are kept real with the use of monochromatic and classic hues or black, white and brown. Upon close inspection, you’ll see jacquard grid texture all over to add to the sophisticated festive look that’s reserved yet palpable. The contrast panel detailing and relaxed shape of the garment offer a punctuation of style while staying within the boundary of cozy comfort.
The kurta set on the other hand I suppose would be more embraced by many stylish men as one, it’s closer to the look of a baju melayu, albeit made more contemporary as reflected in its fitted construction, especially the pants as they’re tapered. Taking inspiration from the Orient, the high-low hem of the monochrome kurta set is a stylish find, one that a guy with serious fashion needs will be so glad to wear.
I’ll leave you to eyeball the imagery below to appreciate the awesomeness of Hatta’s raya-worthy men’s collection. Enjoy!
