Ethnic pieces are not always boring nor old-fashioned. However, it can be a stylish statement style that everybody certainly can wear.
I'm still amazed of what Danny Satriadi did to his latest ready to wear collection, Arkamaya, at Bazaar Fashion Festival 2014. "Novelty of Chuba" was the theme of the show that inspired by Tibetian Architectural shape and colorful design. Shades of carnation pink, rosewood, canary yellow and aero blue were in soft and calming tones. The fabric materials include Batik Cirebon and other batik made by cotton matched by Dobi woven, linen, non-machine woven (Alat Tenun Bukan Mesin) viscose and Central Java's Batik Lurik. In the end of the show, Danny Satriadi presented three dresses with more complex design which were perfect to end the show.
The ready to wear's vibrant and dynamic colors were so interesting yet the modern design completed all perfection. In addition, the mix and match was closely perfect. It was very pleasant to watch the show.
I love the repeated beading in the reddish jacket which is also my favorite piece. The blue mini dress with white long sleeved shirt underneath are so gorgeous. For yellow pieces, the yellow mini dress looking like skort with mandarin collar is epic.
