099 | DUNES BY OKA DIPUTRA

If some of you watched the 20th cycle of America's Next Top Model that had filmed in Bali, you may notice the rice paddy photo shoot in Ubud when the model had to pose with local Indonesian outfits. He's Oka Diputra, the designer behind the beautiful clothes on most of the models. I've been watching his collections since Indonesia Fashion Week 2012 and I totally fall in love in how he creates the strong silhouettes on most of his menswear collections.
I am back to Indonesia Fashion Week 2014, now as their official blogger so I had my chance get most of the access to go everywhere. With his thick Balinese accent, Oka has such a humble personality. I was a bit worried since I am not a good interviewee, but I kinda think I have to have some chit chats with him and finally, he was very calm & welcoming; then we had several minutes to talk about his life, America's Next Top Model, and his new collection entitled "Dunes".




Talking about his showroom in Indonesia Fashion Week 2014 is his new collection entitled "Dunes". Dunes itself is inspired by the movement of the several sand dunes around the world. Fabrics used on the collection is 70% polyester combined with 30% silk. Pretty friendly for Indonesian weather, eh ? What makes it interesting, when most of the designers are
hiring another persons or artisans to finish the embroidered details or some sort of stuffs. Oka confessed that he finished all of his dress details by himself and it took almost 8 hours to finish 1 dress. Oka Diputra is being amazing as always. Adore him a lot ! Such a good thing to be able to know him more in person. Oh, Oka Diputra is selling most of his collections in Beachwalk Bali and on-line at www.okadiputra.net.

098 | WHITE WHITE

So, I personally have no idea why I feel that I am way more productive during midnight. Just like I did at this time (1.30 AM in the morning; I can't sleep). I am searching for a magazine cover that is photogenic enough for me to illustrate and I found the latest Harper's Bazaar US cover for March 2014 featuring Hillary Rhoda. I am loving how the stylist brought the androgynous feature in Hillary Rhoda's feminine look as we might see; and also the strong yet clean line cut of Calvin Klein's outfits here. Totally good for me to improve my drawing skill.
Model: Hillary Rhoda
Photographed: Daniel Jackson
Outfit: Calvin Klein Collection and Jennifer Fisher necklace
Magazine: Harper's Bazaar US - March 2014

096 | LEAP

It's quite a long time since the last time I posted my #OOTD look. Because at the time, I do concentrate more into my contribution as an official blogger for Indonesia Fashion Week 2014. Now, here I am. Well actually, a friend asked me to join that Rexona Invisible Dry Style Challenge with Black and White.
Since my friend thinks that I do a lot of black and whites in my outfit posts and there you go. So what can you do is simply click this link and search for my jumping shot and see it. It's that simple.
And also here, I just bought this V neck tee-- and yes finally I own a V-Neck because I never ever dare to wear V neck. But for this one, I think I should just buy this basic tee from Uniqlo; in collaboration with Asian notable designers and this shirt is designed by Danjyo-Hiyoji. They actually designed 4 graphic tees but since I love simple graphic, this t shirt attracts me and I just grab it.
Cap: Unbranded
T shirt: Uniqlo GU x Danjyo-Hiyoji
Backpack: H&M
Cargo pants: Uniqlo
Shoes: Nike

095 | MIDNIGHT LIGHTS

MIDNIGHT LIGHTS
16 pages on A5 Linen Paper

Midnight Lights is a personal project I did in a mission to do a photography exploration using low light and slow exposure as its main medium. The concept of Midnight Lights itself is how could we see the city I live in in different angle. Because as we know, Jakarta is well known for its concrete jungle, the city that never sleeps; and the peoples is indirectly living in the love-hate relationship-an agony. They cursed the city for its endless traffic yet that is the place where they fight for their lives to gained some money.
Here, I would like to explore how the city looked like when most of the peoples are living in their other world; a reversed life cycle. Lights and silences. It illuminates the dark in an effortless minimal look. Because now I know, the city looked way beautiful with less lights and noise. I was doubt if I could find the inner peace of the city through these photographs, though. But there you go. More on my Behance site.
