Well renown designer Jovian Mandagie and Bajoo’s founder Jackie at the launch of Lisa Surihani for Jovian 2.0 collection at Bajoo. Jovian will be there until 4pm at Bajoo (today, Friday 3rd March). Catch him while you can.
 

Setting off a milestone over the first release that immediately stole the heart of Malaysian & Brunei women, Jovian Ready-To-Wear has now continued its latest upshot with the comeback of the most recognizable collection called as ‘Lisa Surihani for Jovian 2.0’, which sets to reflect her enthusiasm on fashion, motherhood and evergreen beauty of an icon in a more mature level.

Swaggering a perceptibly sophisticated appearance from red-carpet walk to her daily getup, this talented public figure that was not just respected for her recent achievements as the best actress award for Anugerah Skrin and Malaysian Film Festival, but acclaimed to also have an absolute reputable-style to impress.

As mentioned by Jovian Mandagie, the Chief Executive Officer/Creative Director of Jovian RTW, “This collaboration gives the opportunity for me and Lisa to understand fashion in a diverse perspective. By designing a collaborative collection, which is inspired by an all-time icon like her helps to embrace myself in what fashion is all about and beyond.”

This second edition allows the modern-day woman to be seen with the newest trends of that funky flare she houses within. While reviving her signature way of dressing, the embellishments and silhouettes surely give the collection a coveted style that offers a broad range from optical prints to vivid patterns on the power staple pieces.

Other than that, this collection is made with love and joy and specially designed to those who share the same spirit in life, which is to celebrate life with fashion and beautiful apparels. A collection dedicated to all generations, as we call it “Hati Lisa” by Lisa Surihani for Jovian 2.0.

As if the first edition was never enough, this highly-demanded return consists of 50 designs featuring modern Baju Kurung on a different peplum cut that goes from hip panel, split curved, soft ruffle, to asymmetrical cut. For that minimal-effort look, the shade of hues amid between blue, yellow, champagne, purple, and orange family that appeal very fresh yet all-age appropriate.

Having to interleave the material such as crepe as everyone’s-favourite choice, the collection has pulled together a modish approach into this collection and serves the second edition a soothing feel for yet another festive collection from Jovian RTW brand.

Also stated by Lisa Surihani, an Actress and Public Figure, “Me and Jovian, we never fail to support each other even from the early days. I am very thankful that he puts that much of trust in me and how he can channel the other side of me for people to see through this collection.”

Launching this highly anticipated collection for the second time in Bajoo Boutique, Brunei, it is an obvious choice for Lisa and Jovian. The store is a perfect fit for the collaboration collection to be previewed and also it welcomes everyone with a warm vibe as people enter it. Not to forget, Bajoo Boutique has always been Jovian’s biggest support in Brunei and a great partner to work with.

Adding it onto the cart, this collection also has its range of signature hijab for 10 designs and perfume that are available for purchase. Besides that, this special edition is also available with its kids wear line, which consists of 20 designs with acting-muse, Yahaira Leanne. A perfect mother-daughter duo that is simply irresistible. Everyone in Brunei may enjoy purchasing the full set of collection at Bajoo Boutique from 3rd of March to 4th of March 2017.
