Local modest menswear label FARED recently unveiled its debut collection of jubah and kurta for the upcoming festive season dubbed “FARED Syawal 2021”.
The brand features six neutral-coloured pieces which materials are made from pure linen and high-quality cotton – an ideal choice for comfortable wear during Raya.
FARED founder Farid Edros, in an interview with The Bruneian, said that the move to introduce the new apparel line is aimed to diversify the options for modest menswear in the local market.
“(We know that) choices for men’s clothing is quite limited compared to women’s. I believe our choices of materials are unique and the designs are suitable for men who wish to appear stylish yet modest at the same time,” he said, adding that the collection’s art direction was assisted by 1001 Agency.
The 26-year-old entrepreneur also shared that the label has rebranded from its previous name “Far’Ed”.
“I have always dreamt of rebranding Far’Ed. Covid-19 was definitely a blessing in disguise. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to realise that dream of mine last year and release a new collection after so long,” he added.
The exclusive collection comprises three kurtas and three jubahs with prices ranging from $55 to $75 which orders can be made via its Instagram @fefared
FARED Syawal 2021 collection was first shown to the public on February 13 at The Mall, Gadong which launching event was attended by President of Council for the Welfare of Persons with Different Abilities (MKOKU) Dato Paduka Haji Mohd Alimin Haji Abdul Wahab and Director of Tourism Malaysia Brunei Hj Ibrahim Seddiqi Talib.
