For the past months, I have been receiving this beautiful fashion/lifestyle magazine called CLARA on my desk (Thank you so much CLARA). So I thought I want to write to a piece on this gorgeous magazine…just because it is Gorgeous, Edgy, Inspirational and very Cultured yet unique with its out of the box contents. I love the fact that this magazines always finds its way to discuss and write about Indonesian cultures in a new fresh and unpretentious angle. Love the haute culture section for the April issue : ST(AGENT) provocateur …an article that highlight “Stagen” or our traditional wrap, belted cloth …which is equivalent to today’s SPANX. Stagen is actually our ancestor’s secret sauce to beautiful and slim body. I am also a fan of Samuel Mulia’s back cover column ‘Laugh with Sam”. I had the privilege to meet him this week, after ages of not catching up. I enjoyed the time…launghing and gossiping…and discussing our dream of wanting to see Indonesia to be able to produce a world class company that everyone will be proud of. YES Sam, I will make sure there is one at least from the digital industry 😉 and YES you have delivered a world class magazine already.
Anyway, check out the CLARA’s cover for April issue….red and black…with Lulu Tobing on it…so chic. The fact that it is MADE in INDONESIA…I love it even more. LOVE and BRAVO to CLARA.
