Fierce jewellery, unexpected luxury

You can tell a lot about a woman based solely on the jewelry she chooses to wear. All the more when that jewelry is so dazzling, and so unexpectedly layered as if its ultimate purpose is to redefine the idea of luxury. For Sarah Ford, luxury is clearly no longer just for the classy ladies, it’s an ever evolving statement and it’s all about power:…

Daniel Wellington watch; my new timepiece

I inhertied my passion for horological finery at about the same time I developed my passion for suits (the watches, perhaps, came first), and I inherited both from the same man. At first it was a digital watch here and a Timex piece there (as an aside, Timex have the loudest tick I’ve ever encountered – light sleepers, beware), but before long it was a…

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, techno genius

Drawing what is perhaps a tentative link beween Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Transformers, and how gadgets can improve your life, is the October 2012 issue of Elle Indonesia. Another familiar Dolce & Gabbana outfit, the shot is from the same series as her recent Elle UK cover.

Mettle jewellery channels The Fifth Element

Part of The Fifth Element‘s enduring appeal was the iconic costuming: Milla Jovovich, bright orange hair, white bandage-strapped outfit clinging precariously to a model frame. It also brought sci-fi themes out of geekdom with its mainstream cast and love-conquers-all ending. Both the visuals of the film and the themes around humanity’s survival were the inspiration behind Mettle’s latest jewellery collection – and it’s all the…

Marie Claire Indonesia hears the beat of the drums

It’s one of the strongest of 2012’s fashion motifs, yet few creatives are game to approach it. It’s the tribal fashion trend, and this season it differs from past interpretations. In the past the look was overt: a turban here, a kaftan there. It’s easy enough to weave a pictorial around such motifs. They are in themselves a work of fiction. A creative, be they…

Rising star Nikicio

Nikicio flew onto our radar at the recent Indonesia fashion week, with a collection that struck me as being stitched together with the very threads of youth. With pockets already stuffed full of awards and acknowledgements, including Best Young Indonesian Designer of the Year by Elle Magazine Indonesia and The Fashion Machine by Rolling Stones Indonesia, the label is a star that’s quickly rising. DEW…

Tradition vs modernity: Indonesia’s big question

Indonesia fashion week just crossed the finish line of its inaugural event. A government-driven push to put Indonesia on the fashion map, it's an event underpinned by the need to balance the county's proud heritage with its ever-burgeoning modernity. So how are Indonesia's designers, and the event itself, taking on that task? Read on as we take a look.

Ghea’s China dolls backstage

Often the details of a collection that steal your heart are the details that get lost from afar. Two designers at Indonesia fashion week that had me at their intricacies were  Deden Siswanto and Ghea, whose garments up close were far more impressive than any runway photos can do credit to. Backstage before the show, those loving details were far more easily appreciated, from the…
