Featured Article: Sapto Djojokartiko Couture Fall Winter 2013-2014


The Solo-born fashion designer closed 2013 with his brilliant latest collection which was inspired by two international figures: Madame Grès and Irving Penn, who were popular at 1950′s (his favourite era of fashion). Drapped ball gown with hour glass silhouette, emphasizing on woman’s slim waist, was one of his signature designs this time.

Adjusting with current modern era, Sapto Djojokartiko made the dresses more practical, with light movement as the main focus. You can see lots of movement from the use of chiffon in the first sequence that was only presented in bold red and black. Shoulder was also one of the highlights from the first sequence, as lots of the dresses were showing the sexy area.

In the second sequence, Sapto presented more ladylike silhouette with elaborate brocade, luscious lurex, amazing beading works, and intricate draping technique. One of our favourite looks was the one worn by Katya Talanova. It was elegant yet sophisticated. You can expect to see his latest designs hitting red carpet events and fashion editorials very soon!

The latest collection from Sapto Djojokartiko was presented on December 18th 2013, at Kerastase 50th Anniversary event in Ritz Carlton Pacific Place Ballroom, Jakarta. Click here to view the complete collection.

Lady Gaga for Vogue US September 2012


UPDATED AUGUST 15th 2012: Added a new image via TFS that revealed the inside fold out covers featuring a 1949 cover shot by Irving Penn and Vogue‘s first ever cover.

Grace Coddington styled the 26 year old singer in a purple Marc Jacobs Fall Winter 2012 patched-up dress—-in different shape and color from the runway version—-for the September cover of Vogue US, photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot.

This is a nice September cover, even though the red banner kinda unnecessary. Don’t forget that this issue is their BIGGEST EVER with total of 916 pages (658 of them are ads!), beats the 840 pages from September 2007! Even though Elle Indonesia still wins with 1000+ pages for their anniversary issue earlier this April. Oh, and Lady Gaga give a better front page image, and wig, than her first for the magazine last year.
