A GLIMPSE FROM JAKARTA FASHION WEEK 2013: DAY 5
Proofs that batik can look edgy, energetic and futuristic. Featuring Iwan Amir, Lulu Lutfi Labibi and Sischset Detta, Erasmus Huis presented “Revival of Batik Belanda”.
Batik Belanda is still Batik by us, Indonesian, but the motives are influenced by the Dutch. Back in the very old days (Dutch colonial era), many Dutch fell in love with batik, therefore they created a special pattern, mostly flowers. And they injected the brighter colors too.
It was refreshing to see Batik Belanda by the three young designers from Indonesia, as each of them came up with their own uniqueness.
