You know you’re in for treat when the first model out on the runway wearing a unique headpiece. Top Indonesian model Kelly Tandiono was the first girl sent out by Denny Wirawan, wearing a metallic sequined shorts, grey top, cropped jacket with beads, a heel-less platform shoes and a headpiece that looks like rice stems/rice straws.
Next girl out wearing a cropped pants, embroidered white shirt, and a cropped jacket made from Palembang’s songket fabric (he mentioned that some of the fabrics made from pineapple fiber), with similar color palettes as Kelly. The theme was “Poetique de Savane” in which the designer translated his inspiration, a dry African savanna, into a feminine, beautiful, yet strong collection with earthy and soft color tones such as brown, taupe, gold, grey, bronze, with a stroke of citrine. He wowed the audience at Jakarta Convention Center last week during Indonesia Fashion Week 2013, with 20 looks that exquisitely wearable yet still radiates traditional nuance.
Those Oscar Daniel‘s intricately natural headpieces getting more dramatic towards the end of the fashion show, where luxe evening wear (the kimono inspired dresses stole our attention) with long tulle trains were shown by Paula Verhoeven and fellow catwalkers.
It’s a true feast for the eyes, Mr. Denny Wirawan.
