What did Sapto Djojokartiko wanna say by putting a ruin of Hellenic statue in the middle of the set? Did his collection inspired from Greek or Romans? In fact, it is not. “I did not wanna look too ethnic,” he said. Sapto would like to put a global taste on his collection, and of course a lot of drama and showmanship on it.
The inspiration is about ‘Penara’. It’s an equipment to do a manual print on batik by hand (or in some case it could be with machine). But we didn’t expect that the presentation was really far-far away from his inspiration. With a string quartet play a music illustration, the models showed off the collections. Mostly on off white tone and grey.
The detail was embellished embroidery on symmetrical patterns. He also played on sheer material and sometimes put a boyish tailoring on some jacket. The show was simply made all the audiences said uh-and-ah. It simply because they much mesmerized.
To read my article on Tempo.co, you could see it here. Sapto had a consistency with his dramatic show. Last season, he presented his collection by made all the models walk with a mask on a finale of his fashion show. I would wait for his collection on Jakarta Fashion Week. I hope it is surprising.
