      "Play hard work hard" in men's world has inspired Luwi Saluadji to showcase his latest collection at Bazaar Fashion Festival 2014. Started with the casual pieces (which I still wish they would have taken the scarves off), the flow kept moving to the emerging of a beautiful men's batik. Then, the men's hobby world that was represented with big motorcycles growled across the runway. A line of men (with legging?) walked with edgy tops and lined-shaped patches. Lastly, a bunch of formal suits came so manly yet charming. However, I think some shoes in this sequence needed to be replaced in order to show more formal instead of casual look.

      Hi guys, we're reaching the middle of December 2015. We'll have Christmas and the end-year very soon. There are a lot of shopping website offering us the great deal and clearance sale. Christmas tree everywhere... (of course!). We're almost in the moment when we reflect our life along 2014. And soon, we will enter 2015.
      Here I am sitting in front of my laptop, writing this post in the night. Yes, I'm a full-time blogger at night, since I have another job at day. Releasing the remaining energy of mine is not easy though, but I do it for the sake of my happiness. Yes, to write the blog. I also still have plenty to-do-list but it feels a little bit hard to do it. Even I have not read my latest Elle issue with Riri in the cover or sticking my cute sticker I bought few days ago at book store. Even I haven't watched the latest VS fashion show. And even it seems that I haven't time to do the thing that means the world to me: to draw something new, anything.
      I also miss all my best friends, and my pals who work and study either throughout Indonesia's province or overseas. I hope I can see them very soon. Maybe I should make another new friends circle, shouldn't I?
      Finally, I just want to say happy holiday to you, my fellas. Hope you can make a great resolution for the upcoming and awaited year: 2015!

      I always admire model's off duty look. They often come outside the runway with the make up and hairdo still on their faces, completed with effortless outfit. So does the Indonesian model, Eveline. Look at this candid photo, how cool her style is. Only a maxi dress with leaves motif, and silver metallic shoes and bag accompanied her look. Steal her look by wearing this black maxi dress, bag and brogues! Don't forget the eye-shadow, blush on, and lipstick also!

      Inspired by her own origin homeland in Palembang, Mel Ahyar brought Srivijaya Kingdom (South Sumatra) nuance in her latest collection named "Suvarnabhumi". The richness of acculturation culture inspired the designer a lot since in the past Srivijaya tried to expand its region and power through inter-ethnic marriages with China, India, Middle East, Malay, and Javanese into the birth of the new mixed culture. In this collection, there was one renowned Indonesian illustrator, Diela Maharanie, who was involved in the illustration making. 
      For the collection itself, they have the kind of Mel Ahyar's style such as color blocking the black/tan palette fabric with vibrant 3D details, embroidery and beading in loose cape or just mermaid gown. The embellishment seemed sewed so random and a little messy. In addition, it was hard to see the acculturation implementation in the collection. But it still was such a nice collection. It was an artsy collection completed with the black laser cut ear cuff from the accessories designer, Rinaldy A. Yunardi.

      Carmanita, like as always, brought her wrapping-drapery technique in her latest show themed Purity at Bazaar Fashion Festival 2014. All white and white plain organza cotton collection emerged from the corner of the runway embellished with the needlework ribbon made from shibori yarns. All this sheer collection indeed looked like the stacked origami paper, didn't it? The show wasn't over yet until the pastel-gold nuance were coming. Made from white & gold woven India kerala fabrics which was being woven with gold thread. Overall, it was a very feminine and unique collection.

      I always adore the style of people's favorite person: Kimmy Jayanti. This model/actress/tv host has made everyone's envy with her slim body with tanned & smooth complexion. She has her hair dyed into platinum color and everything she wears as just simply effortless. I always love when she wears anything bright which is contrast with her skin like this pic when she did her off-duty look. Don't you love her simple mix match? It is just a bright yellow dress with metallic sneakers but it is indeed a major look. Don't forget to put unique purple lipstick and wear your favorite black tank top underneath, pop the straps out.

"There are some mysterious charms from a once grand kingdoms that ruled in the South East Asia peninsula named Srivijaya. Described as the land of golds, in fact Srivijaya was recorded in history with the name of Suvarnabhumi (land of golds) or Suvarnadwipa (island of golds) which were referring to Sumatra, the capital of its kingdom during their golden age around 9th century." -Mel Ahyar
