good to be clicking the '' button on my chrome's most visited front page today. Alot has happened this week and it seems that my weekend is looking more like an extra Tuesday and Wednesday (I didn't choose Monday because Mondays are somewhat more daunting). But I ain't going to ramble on that..
Instead, I'll be rambling on Didi Budiardjo's marvelous 'Claire de Lune' (moonlight in French) show for today. After battling the infamous 5pm Jakarta traffic, I arrived at the venue and headed backstage. I was awed by all of the marvelous pieces some still hanging on the racks and some worn by the models. The Javanese tradition inspired collection was dominated with white, black, red and gold colors. In contrast with the traditional aspects, Didi tossed in many futuristic attributes such as the accessories created by renowned Indonesian designer, Rinaldy A Yunardi. These include chained loaded headgears, intricate ear pieces, and last but not least my favorite clear acrylic (or whatever it's made of) coral reef-like masks/hats. I'll have to split this post into two because there were alot pictures..
this is NOT one of the collection but I simply loved her style.. loose cardigan and a button up shirt
the man behind the splendid dresses and gowns
the makeup and black (nose?)pieces reminded me of Black Swan.
Laura Basuki also walked the runway that night.. below is the back of her dress..

This is undeniably a great post, full of amazing details of the dresses (one that is uncaptured by Runway pictures) and an amazing preview of where the magic happens (the backstage).

The ultimate blogger you are. Wish you poured out a little review/thoughts on the pieces though.

Love, peace, and regards,
Jo Reiner
