Aspects of Life According to Sapto Djojokartiko

Have you ever had a goosebumps when you see something so beautiful you just practically blown away? That's exactly what I felt every time Sapto Djojokartiko showcases his designs, especially when I saw his latest Spring Summer 2013 collection during Dewi Fashion Knights last November 2012.

Inspired by Vastu Vidya, an architectural concept with the philosophy that architecture is not just any architecture but it is also created to give linear alignment to every aspects of life. Sapto had successfully translated Vastu Vidya belief into a mind blowing designs. The difficult beadings and laser cut out details were influenced by reliefs, textures, and sculpture commonly found on dwelling created based on the Vastu Vidya belief.

With the use of ivory, silver, and black as the main color in the collection, Sapto has managed to bring out truly "every aspects of life" as one beautiful combination. The collection has everything a woman wants. It's sexy, beautiful, elegant, mysterious, but also versatile at the same time. Mr. Sapto Djojokartiko never fails to mesmerize my eyes and captured my heart and of course every fashion fanatics'. I personally love the laser cut cocktail dress and oversized blazer. And oh talk about those beautiful crowns! It just a perfect little details to be add on his entire collection.

The Power of Blair Waldorf

Remember way back when Blair were ruling Constance with her headbands as her signature must have items? Every girl in Manhattan wanted to be her. Not just her power with excellent scheming ability, they also looked up to B sense of style. B was a trend setter with her daring school girl look which became one of fashion phenomenons of the century.



For some designers, making a school girl look as a high fashion collection and to be dominant among other designers can be quite difficult. While I browsed the internet for some fashion editorial inspiration, there it is an amazing complete and perfect collection of school girl style going top notch. It was G.V.G.V Fall Winter 2011. Enough said. Just check out the collection and you'll understand what I'm talking about.






The collection fabulously genius! Who would think that plaid in various color and animal print would be a perfect match?! Even those leather skirts and top and HAT are unbelievable wow factor. I DIE for this collection. BRAVO!!

S.H.O.E.G.A.S.M.

As you all know, I have been a huge fan and collectors of Melissa plastic dreams. So far I have added four pairs onto my Melissa collection earlier this month. But still my heart and soul don't feel complete if I haven't got my hands on these Melissa X Jean Paul Gaultier heels and Melissa X Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon Love Heart in white. If you guys know where to buy these on a reasonable price, please let me know.

Then again, I recently came across an exciting news Mr. Karl Lagerfeld has agreed to join forces and collaborate with Melissa for the upcoming four seasons. The first seasons of Melissa X Karl Lagerfeld will be (hopefully) launched on March 2013. Just in time for Fall Winter 2013. I have to have at least one of his designs for Melissa!!





Enough of daydreaming about Melissa today.

Next, let's talk about Staccato, a UK brand that offers a wide range of fresh and playful themed footwear for the youngsters. For Fall Winter 2012, Staccato teamed up with Ground Zero to make a striking and bold collection this season. 

Out of all the shoes I own, believe it or not, I don't have a single pair of classic pumps! For me shoes it's like an unique piece of art. It's gotta make a statement, bold, outrageous yet beautiful all at once and it seems the fierce pumps of Staccato X Ground Zero simply has it all. Thank God, they launched a perfect pair to buy and that is the blue suede pumps from Staccato X Ground Zero collection. It's definitely one of must buy items this season! Even Cinderella loves 'em. It's a sign people cos Cinderella is my favorite cartoon character!




Adios!

The Finest Talents

I know. I know. I've been M.I.A for quite a while.  So to my dearest readers, I have tons of news to share with all of you.

1. Last April I resigned from my job as a fashion stylist of almost 3 years and now (alhamdulillah!) I'm officially a freelance fashion stylist. Yeahh!! I have been doing few fashion projects, got offered few great opportunities here and there (alhamdulillah!), met plenty of potential future clients and co workers, and I hope those things will continue for a long time.

2. Two weeks ago, my older sister gave birth to her second child. A beautiful baby girl named Sabrina. So now, I have two adorable nieces. Yeah!! Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to meet her because of my work schedule. Damn! Super sorry my dear Sabrina. Auntie will hug and kiss you very soon!

3. I did a fun collaboration with my dear friend and talented photographer, Shakti Siddarta in a tiny photo shoot project. I haven't show anyone the final result, but suddenly, Yoland Handoko texted me and told me an amazing news.

COLOR-O-MATIC

Holiday season is around the corner and bright colors are the perfect summer staple to wear on a hot sunny days! Jordan Anderson, an emerging fashion designer from Brisbane, Australia, created Elvrik, a menswear line with a bit of a personal edgy touch. Bright colors like yellow and red are some of the colors were used to make his Spring Summer 2013 collection came alive.



The highlights of the collection are the head turning men playsuit. It's simple but rather bold for menswear line and I love it! 

     


I just wish Jordan made it also in perhaps multiple color layers and combination or maybe in velvet material, it would be more perfect and different (well, for me to wear ;p).
