A tribute to Junya Watanabe

Denim, leather, stripes and plaid seemingly they don’t belong in the same story, yet when aligned together you realize they are the main elements to build Junya Watanabe’s fall /winter 2013 collection at The Papilion. Styled by Dinta Jakile, the editorial photographed by Teuku Ajie for DEW Magazine is a fashion celebration and a tribute paid to the Japanese designer.

A living poem: Tereza by Teuku Ajie

In the world of fashion, the notions of old and new, seductive and demure, soft and edgy, feminine and masculine, often clash perceptions and from their imminent collision results an alternate styling of such rare beauty that it is almost impossible to ignore. Shot in black and white, as a tribute to Nikicio’s fall / winter 2013 collection, Teuku Ajie‘s editorial manages to feed upon…

Lovely and listless, like a ghost in this world

Some days we feel like ghosts in this world; strangers passing through, here but not really present. It’s possible to feel that way even amidst bustling crowds of people, sometimes even amidst friends – alone within a group – or in the hushed empty walls of home when no-one else is around. Model Lucie is the listless beauty at the center of Teuku Ajie’s haunting…

Dew Magazine’s New World cover

DEW Magazine’s latest issue is themed New World. Editor Teuku Ajie explains that it’s all about “clashing cultures, aesthetics and lifestyles that fuse at the point of impact.” But while the cover shot has a dark, almost melancholic feel – with model Natalia Andriyasova decked out in Gothic styling and posed with hand obscuring her face – it’s by no means presenting a bleak view…

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…

The sea before the sun goes down

There’s the beach and there’s the ocean, and between both is an accumulation of different perceptions. For some the beach is synonymous with sunshine and scraggly-haired surfer babes, the colourful slices of an inflated beachball, icecream and relaxed laughter. To others (or at other times) it’s associated with solitude, the cold, wet sand, ocean breezes and rolling skies. Teuku Ajie’s latest shoot plays to the…

Midnight Souls Still Remain

There’s one shot in particular in this editorial from Dew magazine that blows me away. I’m not sure if it’s the primitive feel of the animal pelt; or the striking make-up by Philips Kwok; or perhaps it’s Teuku Ajie‘s beautiful photography that places the focus sharply on the model’s ornately made-up eyes. The model is Renata Calheiros.
