Mali Mo: For the love of fur

Mali Mo: For the love of fur

Fur is an exquisite piece to add to any ensemble given the occasion; it’s a timely classic many would enjoy. The Kuwait based luxury fur brand Mali Mo has recently launched its Fall/Winter 2015/2016 line and given the previous line, there is no question this season’s pieces are surely captivating and beautiful. The Saudi/Kuwaiti designer behind Mali-Mo, Maali AlOudah, is the Middle East’s first and only fur designer launching in 2011 in Kuwait’s Harvey Nichols. The designer captivated the market with her choice of stunning lynx, aristocratic sable, eye catching fox and royal chinchilla. From a very young age, the designer fell in love with fur watching her mother adorn her fancy outfits with a fur collar or cape, believing that one day she will venture into the fur industry. After years of educating herself and pursuing her dream to involve herself with the business of fur, she accomplished her dream and became the MENA region’s first fur designer, a rarity in a fashion loving area.
Just as her previous collection, this year’s fall/winter collection doesn’t disappoint. The exquisite assortment of exceptional fur garments include vests, long sleeve coats, fur collars, short jackets and capes made from the finest of luxurious furs. This season though, Mali Mo chose to shake things up a bit and based on popular demand from many customers, Mali Mo is introducing a new line of dyed colored vests resulting in an expansion of the label’s assortment. The dyed shades are all made from the finest sable fur in orange, red and blue. This year’s icing on the cake must go to the rare white chinchilla jacket, considered a rarity as opposed to the well-known blue/slate grey with a white bar extending to a black tip.
“I’ve been privileged to obtain a white chinchilla from my distributor this year, my trustworthy distributor provided it for me after four years on the waiting list. The fur business is most commonly a family run business and after showing my commitment and work ethics, they trusted me enough with a rarity, they are very limited and only 10 chinchilla furs are distributed worldwide each year. The distributor I am dealing with is a seven generation family run industry and they provide the best of the best fur ever found on the market. It’s a gorgeous piece and the lady obtaining it will be ever so lucky!”
The chinchilla fur pieces are the best sellers for Mali Mo since they provide the softest and silkiest feel due to their high hair density; each piece is handled with care with over 100 hours of meticulous craftsmanship per piece selected by the designer herself. Other pieces in this collection are the brown sable in its natural rich brown color with an amber touch, long haired light colored and dark dotted lynx jackets, a mix of both lynx and mink in a coat form, luxurious black mink and dark brow mink as well as other collars, jackets and capes.
It’s clear from the variety that the quality is superb. The lush, glossy and naturally thick fur of the black mink is held with the uttermost care to provide the buyer the feel of its original form, luscious and silky. Each piece provides a versatile design suitable for a classy occasion to a more down to earth jeans/t-shirt with a finish of a cape or short jacket. The designer purposefully designed her pieces for a more practical use fit for all ages.
“This year has been a good year for Mali Mo, I’ve made a name for myself in the market and have since extended more internationally. I’ve recently signed a contract to provide my garments at Boutique Elegance in Luxemburg and also a very high end boutique in Limasoll, Cyrpus and surely it’s an exciting new venture for me. I still strive to present Mali Mo in the GCC area, I’m a daughter of Saudi Arabia and a daughter of the Khaleej; I’m looking forward to spread my brand to the area since fur is never and has never been confined to an era. Fur is a timeless classic that never goes out of style.”
All pieces presented are one of a kind. With an ever so challenging market, Mali Mo has presented itself as a leader in fur in the MENA area. The designer is planning to pursue more challenging areas such as Europe and Russia through her innovative designs as well as the excellent quality of furs.
