Featured Article: Plaza Indonesia Fashion Week Men’s Edition Fall Winter 2012


One of Jakarta’s most prominent shopping centers, Plaza Indonesia, recently held their regular major fashion event entitled Plaza Indonesia Fashion Week Men’s Edition. The three-day event, showcased the latest trends from Fall Winter 2012 from the well-known participating tenants such as Y-3 by Yohji Yamamoto, Kenzo, H.E. by Mango, Zara, Superdry, DKNY Jeans, and an über cool Indonesian howegrown brand, (X) S.M.L.

On the first day, Thursday, September 20th, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim-helmed label, Kenzo, was the first tenant to held a fashion show, located at the shopping center’s function hall at level 2 (the whole event later was shown at the mentioned hall). The functional design from Kenzo was translated perfectly in a subtle way such as the discreet pockets for iPhone and iPad, while the prints are intrinsic to Kenzo universe in which they applied paisleys, checks, stripes and medallion prints on the collection.

The second show of the day was Y-3 by Yohji Yamamoto, who got his inspiration for Fall Winter 2012 from Central Asia and it’s nomadic culture. Long, dramatic wool coats (with zippered lapels), sumptuous shearling jackets, nubby fleece knits, oversize plush shorts, and fierce leopard prints were shown on the runway that evening. We’re totally hooked-on by those insanely awesome and cool high sneakers. We. Want. Them. Badly!

Tailored and polished collection with a twist was the conclusion from Homini Emerito collection for Mango, and Zara fashion show, that was presented as the first and second show respectively on the second day of Plaza Indonesia Fashion Week Men’s Edition. In case you’re wondering who’s the model on H.E. by Mango latest campaign images, it’s Gerard Piqué, a 25 year old Spanish footballer who also happens to be Shakira‘s current flame.

Superdry, DKNY Jeans and (X) S.M.L were the final tenants who presented their latest collection on the final day of the event on Saturday, September 22nd. The highlights from the last day event was of course the (X) S.M.L fashion show, in which the models coming out of the guest’s seats!

We recognize Fedi Nuril (model/musician/actor) who sat in the opposite of our seat. We thought he must be just gonna watch the show this time (he walked few shows in the past couple of days) but then the lights turned off, the music blasts, but no models walked out of the runway. One model were actually walking on the opposite direction of the runway (including Fedi Nuril few minutes later), and we thought this guy must be late for the show… But apparently, we were wrong, because more models rising up from the guest seats and walking towards the runway, heading to the backstage. The show starts not long after they’re all disappearing to the backstage. It was brilliant!

All of the fashion shows ran smoothly and even if they were delayed, it’s still considerably normal. Even though it’s a men’s fashion shows, but the event succeed gathered the hype and attention from Jakarta‘s ever stylish fashionistas, both sexes.

Until next events!
