A gratifying collection from Major Minor Signature that promises ease and mobility while Sean & Sheila got stuck with a one-note show. Plus, Tities Sapoetra draws inspiration from the locals.
Traveling to Senayan City where Jakarta Fashion Week’s tent is located is an unnerving chore. It goes without saying that the traffic is going to be much worse than usual. And it’s all the more horrifying when a roughly 2km trip can take up more than an hour. It’s so near yet so far. You need both hands to pray that you wouldn’t miss the show. And it is during these moments that you’re grateful to be able to zip through all that horrid traffic with online motor taxi service. Such experience really drove home the fact that time is not the only luxury in this city. Having all the time in the world means nothing in Jakarta without mobility.
