What will you do to show the details of clothes that are placed in the back? Turn the mannqeuin backward. Promod mannequins show the cute Matrioska embroideries that are sewn in the back of this brand's winter sweater.

Sparkling Snows

Senayan City

As December is coming closer, many stores and boutiques are starting to decorate their shop with Christmas theme. This year Banana Republic presents sparkling snows instead of usual faux-snow made with stereo foam. This sparkling little snow is made of little bulbs that usually decorate Christmas tree. Beautiful and a little bit magical.

In Memoriam Harvey Nichols Jakarta

Harvey Nichols Jakarta is officially closed this month. It is a deep sadness for me and perhaps those who love fashion so much. From the fanfare that celebrate the opening of this first premium department store in South East Asia to the up to 90% clearance sale, Harvey Nichols Jakarta will remain a sweet memory for me. This dept. store has allowed me to meet, touch, and purchase some of international fashion brands that I love so much among others Alexander McQueen, Maison Martin Margiela, John Galliano, Givenchy, Alaia, Michael Kors, Manolo Blahnik, Emporio Armani Underwear, Lanvin, Diesel, Missoni, Mulberry, and many others.
Hope someday I can meet Harvey Nichols at any other cities like London, Hong Kong, or Dubai. Amen.

Lanvin Dress

Lanvin is an old couture house that nowadays becomes the symbol of chic and feminine woman. In the hand of Alber Elbaz, many desirable and show-stopper dresses come each season. From cocktail to gala, from funeral to wedding party, for a single one or for a bride, Lanvin is for everyone and every occasion. Here are some of the best Lanvin dresses ever shown on its boutique's window this year.

The Great Coats of Fall



Jean Paul Gaultier


Top Shop

Coat is the core essence of every year's fall/winter trends although Indonesian weather is not friendly with this kind of body heater. I hope it is not too late for me to presence some of the great coats of this Fall/Winter 2010 from some brands.


Paper lanterns is the main attraction of the latest Louis Vuitton windows. Each of the cubical lantern has its 'meaning' but they all symbolize the essence of Louis Vuitton - a travel or a journey. India may become the destination with the image of an Indian god or ancient king. Other lantern has monogram flower just like all those fabulous LV bags. And the most important of a travel is the trunk to carry all the traveller's needs and goodies.
