FRIEDERICH HERMAN, SAMUEL WATTIMENA & OKA DIPUTRA
The line up is actually a mixture from his previous Fall/Winter collection and his latest Spring/Summer collection. I’ve seen some of his signature black & white pants, asymmetrical dress and colorful pastel top. But I just fell in love with his design, remembering that he is pretty new in the industry.
The first model came out with a traditional Tenun (which I don’t know what to call) in his hand with dark-ish modified tuxedo look-a-like. A very good combination between contemporary design and local culture. The Earthy colors filled up the collection such as dark green, gray and light brown.
Another black & white domination in a collection line up. Long pants with drapery effect, rolled up short shorts and I could totally say that this is my favorite line up for pants selection. The contemporary cardigan designs are just good to see if someone would dare to wear it on the street.
Tenun Ikat from West Nusa Tenggara is the main inspiration for the designer Ipoel Daeng Hasanung himself. A good combination between Tenun Ikat, white shirt and a tribal-like pants.
Meanwhile, senior fashion designer Poppy Dharsono went up with thematic collection “Redefining Heritage”, and the message that she’s trying to say to the audience is to be able to lift up the Indonesian culture through the fashion industry.
Brazillian designer Samuel Cirnansck brings the Indonesian local culture as I can see from his line up, there are several Kebaya inspired kind of gown and it makes wonder like, if there’s an international fashion designer did something very Indonesian, why can’t we lift up our local culture more as well ?
