Designer to Watch; Aldre IndrayanaBy ketupatkartini - Jan 17, 2017
It's always fascinating to watch some new talents in fashion design, there comes expectation, anticipation and details worth chattering. It was such a fortune for Indonesian fashion scene that IFC (Indonesian Fashion Chamber) has brought about all these designers as the new members of the association, and introduce them to public through their collection. This was what happened during the Inauguration Show of IFC New Members, 10-11 January 2017 at Clove Garden Hotel, Bandung.
They came from several cities across Indonesia, as we're mentioned and reminded again that they're so many great talents in Indonesia, not Jakarta only. Although what you're witnessing are probably completely new (new names, new looks), they're not necessarily a bunch of newly proclaimed designers. They're consistent, hard working individuals who made their way to this industry for quite some time, in their own cities.
And among those 45 designers, there are few names that made to our list, as promising designer to watch. One of them is Aldre Indrayana, an emerging designer from IFC chapter Surabaya. Aldre -the brand- is a menswear, womenswear and accesssories officially established in 2014. The world of Aldre is classic yet modern and experimental. every small details were carefully experimented and chosen to create a magnificent piece. The head designer, Aldre Indrayana, loves to share his journey through his design. Every piece is designed to be different and practical, and he made sure that every piece is versatile enough to be worn everyday, but made a significant distinction.
In his spring summer 2017 collection, Aldre decided to incorporate his new passion for writing into design. He's currently writing a short fiction story called 'LIMBO', it is a place in the afterlife where God put all of his creation who were rejected by both hell and heaven.
This collection is a continuation of his resort collection 'Limbo: Introduction', and now for spring summer 2017, it's called 'Limbo : Obrance'. Obrance means the defender, guardian of the Limbo. Some eclectic, structured pieces made into the range; from drop crotch pants to coat with printed-patch detailing, every piece has structured yet fluidity to make it more organic.
Colors are mostly black, stripes and special decorated prints; abstract and ambiguous to make people think and see further. We love this collection for its surprise elements; cutting, details and materials. He used upholstery/curtains fabric which surprisingly wearable and comfort enough for coat or outer.
