Since its inception in 2008, Nala has become a recognisable homegrown brand known for its vibrant, hand-designed patterns with spins on classic Malaysian motifs.
From its beginnings offering paper craft products and fabrics, the brand has evolved to include a range of apparel, fashion accessories and household furnishing. Today, the brand has expanded its presence to France, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Cambodia and opened 10 stores in Thailand just last month.
This Christmas, Nala brings a splash of colour with its Winter 2018 ‘Over The Moon’ collection, where its signature hand-designed patterns borrow inspiration from the traditional Chinese mooncake and further enhanced with the intricacy of vintage Malaysian jewellery.
Duly committed to its Malaysian heritage, the patterns – each meticulously hand-drawn by Nala founder and creative director, Lisette Scheers – pays homage to not only the country’s varied cultural backgrounds but also flaunts elements inspired by local flora, fauna and vintage motifs and the latest collection is no different. The patterns cut a striking image with their vivid shades and ornate scalloped shapes detailed with embossed reliefs and floral motifs.
