Late Bloomer

Please forgive me for my lack of information but i just love this designer's work which happens to be the iconic Karen O from Yeah Yeah Yeahs costume designs. (Yeah, i just found him :) )
And this is some of my favorite designs taken from Christian Joy Spring 2009 collection. For us in Asia, the nearest place to grab his amazing clothes is in Harvey Nichols Hongkong.

Genious Karl

Mr Karl Lagerfeld himself has designed this Perspex Briefcase as seen in Chanel Fall/Winter 2009 runway. Even though it's kinda weird but I'm sure someone could use it in real life, with a style, of course. Maybe someone like Anna Piaggi?

Yeah, I Can Do That!

I found a superb spread in Dazed & Confused April 09 Edition. Nicola Formichetti as the stylist could style all the tons accessories very well contrast with oh-so-bold background so that it was literally eyes-satisfied. Hmm thinking to pull that as such an inspiration :) maybe i could do with Indonesia traditional accessories?

Double Trouble

One of my favorite photographers are this duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott who has decided to work together under the name Mert & Marcus. I simply love their bold colour in such a strong theme. Very clean indeed. Superb. The secret behind their works lies in their perfectionism of the appereance.

"We spend most of the time in the make-up and hairstyling rooms, focusing more on the look than on more technical aspects."

After succesfully captured the Emporio Armani's ad with Victoria Beckham and Miu Miu's featured used-to-be-nobody Katie Holmes, check out their latest magic in Kate Moss for Topshop Spring/Summer 2009 ad campaigns.

Cyber Invasion

Since not all cyber stores provide a shipping facility to Indonesia, i personally surf those web to catch up all the latest trends, the latest brands, and exactly the latest ideas in fashion and of course lifestyle that we can't find that much in this beloved country.
One web that recently caught my eye is this fashion forward web:

My Little Joy Trip

when a "so so" performance could magically blown me away :)

Finally I have the chance to have my wanderlust satisfied. It’s Singapore, not for shopping or some getaway from Jakarta’s hectic traffic but to experience that rock n roll stellar performance of Oasis. Yes this Manchester band is coming to South East Asia for their 2009 Dig Out Your Soul Tour. Here are some of the highlights of my trip:

I stayed in Mrs Sara and Bayu Febriajie place ☺, had the chance to see baby Lula myself. The baby girl is so gorgeous; thanks to her bold bright eyes.

Before the concert, I strolled the city with Dyan and her lil sis, Dani. We had our chance to see the art installation exhibit in Esplanade. One that caught our attention is the piece that made by the Brazilian women artist. She made this wall covered by papers typed with her favorite quote completed by the old chair and an old typewriter in front of it. Very cute and such a well executed theme. One quote that won our hearts says:
“I don’t know which one is worse, knowing that I won't forget you or knowing that I will.” yeah guess my hearts scream the same :)

Yes, and the concert began. I stood in front of the stage, in front of Gem Archer himself. Oh God how I love him haha. And guess what, I found out that he always tidied up his hair after almost every song. He did that 6 times approximately for the whole show!! But he’s still gorgeous though. Wearing squared red white black shirt with skinny black pants. Resembled a truly British charmer. Even though for me it was not a good enough ending (Oasis chose ‘I am Walrus by The Beatles to close the night,). I basically love that song and I love the Beatles, but It’d more appreciated if they end it by their own song. Any song. But never mind, on top of all, I’M FULLY SATISFIED ☺ I’m fully thankful and thank God to be given a chance to see their stardom right before my eyes. So Oasis, checked! Coldplay, checked! The Cure, checked! Incubus, checked! Death Cab for Cutie and Daft Punk are some of my future shows to attend.
