Tomorrow Land

Is it getting hot in here or is it just (X) S.M.L?

Once again (X) S.M.L presented an exceptional fashion show. My expectation flying so high when I got the invitation that just like a passport. And it was true, we're all invited along Biyan Wanaatmadja to enter the world of his imagination. Walked through the gate just like in airport then everything is centered on the terminal. It was "Tomorrow Land". When the lights went out, we were all escorted into a magnificent runway and amazingly there was a plane! When heavy smoke blanketed the room, dozens of models came out of the plane with dynamic, energetic and youthful collection from (X) S.M.L. I can feel the futuristic atmosphere that was created.

This time Biyan Wanaatmadja design the dresses more clean, modern, minimal and can be worn with a variety of ways. With the colors of white, light gray, dusty pink, khaki and strictly colors like black and navy that gives the caracter more elegant. This collection represents a future imagination that is not limited, shown by melancholy colors that has clean lines with scluptural motif detail, architectural, geometric, three-dimensional and a touch of polkadots which are applied in many of styles. All of the dresses shows the creativity and imagination by Biyan it's own. Have been 13 years (X) S.M.L become the trademark of modernity, creativity, dynamic, and youthful, that will always take you into your own imagination.

(X) S.M.L. please take me into Tomorrow Land, I'm totally yours.

UIFW: Natural Bond Beauty

One of my favorite designers, Barli Asmara participated UI Fashion Week.
Unfortunately he didn't show his latest collection, but a season ago.
However the dresses still seduce me!!!
With the theme "Natural Bond Beauty"
by processing natural color threads with unique nodes and a high degree of difficulty,
Barli Asmara show off his capabilities and existence as one of talented designer in this country.
Everything blend beautifully with the natural, traditional and exoticism.
I just died!

This is the last post about UIFW.
I was so touched by the closing speech from one of the originator.
Their hard work should be appreciated in the name of young creativepreneurs in the fashion industry. 
Hopefully next year can be better and better.

UIFW: White Shirt is Boring

A worth to see Lookbook Jakarta fashion show in UI Fashion Week.
Lookbook Jakarta's good ideas is to be yourself with all the flaws that you have.
They successfully amaze fashionistas-fashionistos-and-everyone-in-between with the theme "Plain-White-Shirt is Boring."
And amazingly white shirt become so cool on the runway that night.
For me, this is the best show of UIFW.

I will never be afraid to be myself even the world against me.
I know that I was not so cool in the eyes of you and you're the coolest-man-alive! It's so okay then.
But please, you're killing me with your-unpleasant-sharpy-sharpy-eyes.
There is no hurt replying little smile.

UIFW: Unveiling The Beauty

Most of the collection from UI Fashion Week was exhibited for women.
With the highest number of Muslims in the world,  the hijab is an interesting part of the country.
In fact Indonesia kept trying to be a fashion center of the Muslim world. Great!
The "Unveiling The Beauty of Hijab: filled with color and soft materials that are not thermal used.
Surely we can not completely replicate what demonstrated on the runway,
but we can take inspiration from it.

UIFW: Urban Chic Empowerment


It was good when fashion week coming.
And this year is the first year of UI Fashion Week 2012. Lets see the inside.
For the first session themed about Urban Chic Empowerment by: Nainsook, Macaroons Closet, N.Y.P and Alex(a)lexa.
Second session themed about Woman Infashion by: f.M.L, Cocoon, C.L.O.S.E.T, de.cada.dia, Vintage Victim and Canvas.
Last session Denim Fashion Frenzy with national football players and streetstylers. Cool!
I noticed a common thread among their collections: soft, seethrough, color blocking, flew and sweet.
However there are some refreshing my eyes, such as flowery from Alex(a)lexa, some printed collection from Vintage Victim and I call this "Like a Boss" from de.cada.dia.
One thing that fascinated me from this event,  at the young age,  at least they have made a big step to create and express themselves.
Support local brands!

Beyond Moodboard

My beyond-imaginaton moodboard for Looks Magazine 5th Anniversary September Big Fashion Issue.

Around You

Life is getting hard. And then I see the world around me.
Makes me just realized how beautiful it is.
I'm grateful. I'll sacrifice my life.

My lovely-annoying cousin. I miss him.
