Article by Lyna Mohamad of Borneo Bulletin. The fashion event JBoxing this year will be held in Brunei at The Empire Hotel & Country Club from May 5-7 (next weekend) and will see the launching of Jovian’s first bag collection.
Inspired from London’s Boxing Day, JBoxing is fashion line Jovian’s annual event. This year, Jovian Mandagie, CEO and Creative Director of Jovian, will host the event while launching its first bag collection, the Jovian Borsa, and its new Jovian Men and the Little Boy Collection.
“I have always wanted to have an event in Brunei and I figured that the time has come. Due to a lot of requests, we have decided to bring JBoxing to Brunei,” said Jovian in a press conference last weekend.
The inaugural event is jointly organised by Bruneian powerhouse atelier and multi-label store, Bajoo Butik, and main partner Baiduri Bank Group.
The event which will also see the Little Kids Collection from the Lisa Surihani Collection, Savannah Collection for Zalora Fashion and the JLuxe Collection, has become a phenomenon for every fashionista, especially those craving for Jovian RTW (‘Ready-To-Wear’).
Always a wonderful chemistry between the two 😀

Jovian said Bruneians will get to see “an exciting project” between him and Jackie of Bajoo Butik, with the launch of the kid’s line designs for the Brunei and Malaysian markets.
“I think this is a high achievement and a great benchmark for Jackie for being able to collaborate with a brand from Malaysia,” he said. “JBoxing is an event where we would have exclusive, new launches of a collection, as well as special discounts on items,” said Jovian. “There are also items on a flat price basis, or that might turn into a free giveaway.”
From only 4,000 visitors in the first year it was launched, the number of people coming to the ‘box’ has increased every year, with a record 40,000 visitors last year.
“We are very much ready to shake the city with a new experience of shopping… We are expecting visitors coming from all over Brunei, Sabah and Sarawak,” said Jovian, who expects 15,000 visitors this year.
The CEO expressed his appreciation to Baiduri Bank Group, DST, BMW, Mix Mediaworks, Brunei Press and other partners for bringing the event into the international stage.

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.
