A celebration of modern batik is seen at Alleira Batik’s runway show during day one of Plaza Indonesia Men’s Fashion Week (PIMFW) 2016, in partnership with DA MAN
Closing look on the runway
Vacationing-in-style is perhaps the best way to describe the latest men’s collection from Alleira Batik, which was showcased on the first day of PIMFW 2016. Models strutted down the runway wearing bomber jackets, wide-sleeved shirts, pajama shirts, pleated pants, kimonos and long coats—all made from silk, cotton and cotton drill.
Alleira Batik also paid homage to traditional batik patterns. Classical motifs like kawung and parang were intertwined with the brand’s more contemporary batik designs made using the batik cap (hand-stamping) technique. These were presented in bright colors such as peach, yellow, green and violet in a clear statement that this traditional textile is far from dull and can easily shed its old-school image.
Here are top 5 favorite looks from the show:
