EVERYONE IS UNIQUE
As we go through life, our bodies undergo changes that affect the way our clothes fit us. Whether it's weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or aging, it's important to have clothing that can adapt to our changing bodies. That's why at Malaika New York, we understand the importance of designing clothing that not only looks good but also feels comfortable and fits well, even as our bodies change.
One of the key ways we achieve this is by focusing on oversized fits that range across two sizes. We recognize that not everyone fits into a standard size chart, and that's why we offer a range of sizes that allow for different body types and shapes. Our oversized fits are carefully designed to ensure that they are not too loose or too tight, but instead provide the right amount of comfort and flexibility to accommodate a changing body.
At Malaika New York, we understand that everyone's body is unique, and that's why we design clothing that celebrates diversity. We believe that every person should feel comfortable and confident in their clothing, no matter what their size or shape. We believe that clothing should be an expression of one's personality, and that everyone should have access to clothing that makes them feel good.
At Malaika New York, we believe that comfort should never come at the expense of style. That's why we only use premium fabrics that are soft, durable, and of the highest quality. Our fabrics are carefully selected to ensure that they can withstand wear and tear, while also being gentle on the skin. We believe that clothing should be an investment, not something that needs to be replaced after just a few wears.
Our commitment to using premium fabrics also means that our designs last for years to come.

By designing clothing that is made to last both by creating clothes that ranges two sizes and quality we are helping to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
THE ASYMMETRICAL COLLECTION
I wore this dress for an elevated casual company event and I received compliment after compliment. The fabric is soft, the fit is loose but not baggy and the pockets are genius. I felt comfortable yet chic. I own several shirts and a three dresses from Malaika and they are all simply the best. Oh top of that Malaika offers outstanding customer service.
Cool og lækker vest, som er så behagelig at have på. Den er unik i designet og skønne detaljer og brugsværdi tænkt ind i den… og så er Malaika så medlevende i både designet og med hjælp, hvis der er brug for det :)
I love the t-shirts by Malaika. I have both asymmetrical and hexagon and love wearing them both. They are made of the most amazing material and have a fantastic shape that makes you feel comfortable and chic at the same time. Love it👌
Love it - the lightweight fabric makes it so comfortable to wear. Fits perfectly and forgiving of those areas of my body which I’m insecure about.
I LOVE this dress. It is so versatile! You can dress it up or down. The neck line is very flattering and the fit as well. It's nice to have a go to dress that covers some of those insecurities (mom of 3 over here if you know what I mean :)) and feel sexy in it. It looks like a simple design, which I was attracted to, but when on, you'll see that it's more than that. The fabric is soft and holds well in the wash. I received many many compliments. Also, customer service wonderful!!! Shipping was no issue and came sooner than I thought. GREAT dress, GREAT company. Highly recommend it.
I'm wearing my white hexagon t-shirt for the first time today and I've already had a compliment on it. It looks cool, drapes really well and it's really comfortable and super soft. What's not to love? I hope to be wearing it for many years :)
The asymmetrical t-shirt is the perfect combination of comfort and style!
I love the fact that the fabrics are very solid (meaning non transparent), so comfortable and adaptable to the body, and that even if there are no body lines in the pattern, it falls fantastically on the body.
It's really a versatile item, ideal for every occasion:) and the feeling of soft cotton is a pleasure for the skin.
The vegan fur poncho is wellmade, warm, soft and with a very nice fit. I love the front pocket detail and the thickness of the fabric. It simply hugs my body and makes for a cozy accessory. I'm excited to wear this on an upcoming trip to Iceland. I own 4 Malaika pieces and they are all fabulous.
This is a real classic. The printed page does not do it justice. The contrast between the black and grey is amazing. This woman does beautiful work.
I love this dress - I’m pretty curvy and it flatters, unlike most universally sized dresses I’ve tried before.
The pockets are super convenient and I really like the neck which is again very flattering. It’s wide too so you can wear the dress to the side etc.
The material is really soft, it was so comfortable to wear all day and night.
This was my first purchase from Malaika and I would definitely buy again.
I love the Jutland dress. I was a little hesitant to order but I am so glad I did. The one size fit is very versatile and the style is great. The designer is so friendly. I would love to order more
If you’re thinking about getting this dress, then get it! Not only is it stylish and edgy, but it’s so comfortable! Regardless of your body shape it will look amazing. I also love the fact that Malaika is zero waste and sustainably focused. I’ll be enjoying my dress for many years to come!
Love Malaika! Her designs are phenomenal. Anything you buy from her will not disappoint.
LOVE IT. Super soft fabric, clever tailoring and very flattering.
I love all of the high quality products in my Mystery Box! I feel so chic wearing these works of art. The fabrics are very cozy and forgiving, and the designs are unique and glamorous. It was definitely worth the wait. Brava, Malaika!
