The jacket is a concept piece from the collection ‘The Steps to Baltiyul’. The creative head of Morri describes this jacket as a depiction of a woman’s quest to find inner beauty while exploring lands far beyond. If you look closely at the artwork on the jacket, you will see multiple elements, like the reflection of her face in a looking glass with her hair twirling up out of a beautifully carved frame, protecting her from snakes and sharp iron casts. You will also find suspended feathers, violet roses and coiling snakes amidst this dreamy setting. The jacket is versatile, and can be dressed up or down, however one wants to wear it.
While trends fade, style remains eternal and one piece can be put together in many different ways. In this feature we have three fashionistas showing us how to put together an item from a designers collection, according to their own individual style and taste!

I would describe my personal style as a blend between classic and contemporary, I love following new trends but without losing my personal style. With this beautiful Morri jacket, I knew I was going to pair it up with a crop top and culottes but I was slightly confused between adding a colour or going with neutral matching separates. In the end I decided to go with the neutral option as it complemented the jacket more. However, I wanted to add colour to my outfit so my cobalt blue heels from Manolo Blahnik and a clutch from Bottega Venetta gave the entire look the right amount of oomph! I got my hair blow-dried straight, while for my makeup I went for kohl-rimmed eyes and a light pink lipstick. To finish off the look I added a pair of diamond studs and my everyday Rolex watch. The outfit that I managed to put together could be worn to formal dinners or even to an engagement party.

This jacket is one of the most exquisite pieces that I’ve seen, beautifully designed by Hammad Sadiq of Morri. The overall effect is so unique and trendy that one can pair it with almost all sorts of lowers. I paired it up with a midnight blue crêpe de Chine flowy underdress, and straight-cut trousers. I added a gold roped belt to the jacket, which enhanced the outfit and brought a little depth to it. I loved the collar, which the brand calls the unity collar. For my hair I went for a voluminous blow-dry from Split Ends and kept my makeup minimal, with a light pink lipstick and a bit of bronzer. I would wear this outfit to a formal daytime event or even to a party because this look has such a fun vibe to it.

When I saw this intricately embellished jacket, I thought of many different ways of styling it because of its versatility. However, I decided on a shocking pink under-shirt and draped pants. The shocking pink enhanced the subtle hues of pinks that had been used in the embellishment of the jacket and gave it a pop of colour. For my hair I got a voluminous blow-dry from Split Ends and I went for a no-makeup look with a barely there nude lipstick and a little mascara. I was aiming for a fusion, minimalist look. Since I wanted the focus to be on my outfit, I kept my shoes simple and decided on wearing hardly any jewellery, just a ring. I would sport this look to a dholki or even to a formal event such as a lunch or a dinner.
