Featured Article: IKAT Indonesia by Didiet Maulana 2013-2014


2013 has been a busy year so far for Didiet Maulana. He recently showed the first ever bridal line, released the 2013 campaign for his Mentari collection, and we heard that he’s going to launch a jewelry line later this year.

Last week, Didiet Maulana presented “Romansa Gala”, a 35-look latest collection from his growing IKAT Indonesia label in conjunction with the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy S4 at Grand Hyatt Jakarta‘s Ballroom. Consistent with the use of Indonesia’s traditionally exquisite fabrics, he paired the conventional look with some conservative shape like below-the-knees sheath dress and adding some chic 1920s flapper details such as long pearl necklaces, headpiece and bias cut shapes. Soft color palettes like peach, olive green and pink dominated the rather casual first sequence. For evening choices, IKAT Indonesia offered luxe satin suits in dark green for men (which we lusting over it!) with ikat details on the shawl or long jacket, and elegant black dresses with sparkly sequins scattered all over.

Last but not least, we’d like to congratulate Didiet Maulana on his new collection and we are looking forward to see more from him in the future!

Featured Article: Indonesia Fashion Week 2013 – Sofie


Algoritmic was the theme for Sofie‘s latest fashion show that showcased during Indonesia Fashion Week 2013 last Thursday, February 14th, at Jakarta Convention Center.

This year, Sofie presented a totally different approach from his 2012 Explosion collection, that was also presented in the same event. No more bright, bubbly, flirty colors. There were only monochrome palettes, with a few dash of blue and brown. The cutting was so urban chic yet practical with lots of minis, sleeveless dress, and cropped jacket that surely can be mix and match with other pieces from the collection.

He used grapchic modern patterns, dots, houndstooth and checkered prints in most of the looks (it’s so on trend this season), which suprisingly matched to the distorted noisy industrial soundtrack. For the menswear, the choice of colors were far more subtle, but still considerably wearable with rolled up textured pants and jackets with unconventional cutting. Bold accesories like big necklaces with chain and two-tone leather shoes (few shoes came in three different colors or with patterns) completed the look.

Featured Article: Claire de Lune by Didi Budiarjo


Didi Budiarjo presented 50 looks for his latest fashion show entitled “Claire de Lune” recently at the Grand Ballroom of Hotel Mulia Senayan, Jakarta.

The senior fashion designer whose graduated from Lembaga Pengajaran Tata Busana Susan Budihardjo in 1989, mentioned in his press release that the essence of Javanese culture inspired this 2012-2013 collection by the subtle use of wiron, dodot, beskap and stagen. The glamour collection was divided into five primary color: white–which opened the first sequence, black, gold, blue and red.

The fashion show made history as the first Indonesian fashion show that streamed live through the whole world via http://www.wolipop.com and received an award from Indonesian World-Record Museum.

The 42 year-old Javanese-born designer also gave surprises in the model casting.

Yesterday I had the chance to attended the 2011 Bridal Collection fashion show of Indonesian Designer Sapto Djojokartiko (click to visit his blog where he posted all of his works there) at Ballroom The Ritz-Carlton Pacific Place Jakarta. I also got the fabulous chance to visited the backstage during make up session and rehearsal just before the show started where 12 models of JIM Models wearing the designer’s exquisite and lovely wedding dresses!!

The models are Fillant, Mega, Pamela, Moudy, Sarah, Antie, Ocha, Merry, Prinka, Drina Ciputra, Marcella Tanaya (she opened the show and just won an award for 2011 Talented New Female Model from Amica Indonesia earlier that night) and the humble Juanita (who closed the show).

I also bumped to some of my friends there, Kaymori (blogger and stylist for iCreate Indonesia) and Luki Ali of lukimages (photographer). The beautiful model and photographer Nicoline Patricia Malina also made appearance on the show. She’s super nice!

The show was in conjunction with Harper’s Bazaar IndonesiaBazaar Bridal Week 2011” that will be held until this Sunday, April 10th 2011 at Ballroom The Pacific Place. Izabel Jahja, the Editor in Chief of the magazine posed for the second time for art8amby. Thank you ma’am!. Sapto Djojokartiko also opened a booth there (click for the designer’s post of the event) and I took some photos of the collections featured.
