For Milan and Rome audience, OSCAR LAWALATA CULTURE innovates the beautiful philosophy of BATIK to three-dimensional fashion through geometry. Presented in the RUNWAYS, the shapes gradually become monumental in scale- stimulate not only the mind but also prompts the eyes. I dropped by Oscar’s place to see his new collection that was freshly shown at Milan and Rome. I always love Oscar’s attention to details and edginess in all his creations. I met up with Oscar that afternoon and spent sometimes to talk about his most recent inspirations: the reinvented geometric motifs on BATIK, in MILAN and ROME, that won him a raving review and show demands. At the end I picked a greyish sea foam green silk batik kaftan: a genius cut…it is just actually one piece of batik cloth just sewn together in the middle. He actually thought of the pattern and batiked the pattern before constructing it into a kaftan, making it one of a kind and unique piece. He is simply a genius and just so talented.

What I wore here: Geometric lines silk batik Kaftan by Oscar Lawalata, Snake printed silver cuff by YSL, Diamond paved watch gifted by Teiwe (Actually an award I got from the TEIWE watch company, honouring chosen entrepreneurs), White Gold with stones and diamonds ring by Trinity Gems, Grey Python Nano Celine bag and black strappy sandals by Zara.
The front, showing the middle part that are sewn together. So one side of the fabric meets in the middle connecting the other part of the fabric. All prearranged in the pattern and batiked before hand.
Showing that even the side is all one cloth…no sewing on the side part. Oscar just batiked the side with a motives to separate the back pattern from the front.
