A More Globalized Batik
By Yudha Satya, GNFI Contributor Several designers combined the exotic East with modern Europe. Apparently, Tenun Ikat and Batik raised the stage in Paris. It was raining, when famous fashion house, Dries Van Noten launched the spring summer man collection 2010 at Palais de la Bourse last June. But the show must go on! Accompanied by sexy voice of Fergie of Black Eyed Peas (and of course the rain), the model still continued to rock the stage.

The show was a success; DVN received big appreciation from mode perpetrators. Not because of the rain, Fergie, or the model, but because his courage from using Batik and Tenun Ikat for man. Ok, you may say it is a joke since man wearing batik and ikat is so common in Indonesia (I believe since Ali Sadikin era at late 70’s), but how Van Noten use it for his newest collections and how Europeans were amazed when looking at a man with Batik or Ikat is a real story. And, last month DVN has launched his spring-summer for female collections 2010. One of his hit collections is named JAVA ROYAL BATIK. Other famous designers on similar trend are Michael Kors who launched his resort collections by using batik prints, built-in sarongs, and bamboo satin; Milan Fashion House Versace also launched their collections which are similar with tie-dye Sasirangan; and Lela Rosa with her outstanding ghostly batik.
