There is a distinct sensibility that a nobleman always bear, a regal presence encased by a  facade of mystery. It is at the very least, what we commoners always expect from aristocrats, and anything less would be unacceptable. Such is the case with the collection that Oscar Lawalata presented in Jakarta Fashion Week 2015. A collection entitled "The Ceremony of Java" the line-up was filled by effortless elegance that exudes a nonchalant princely appeal that seems to suits those of royal blood. 

Terdapat ciri khas yang kontras dari seorang bangsawan, keanggunan definitif yang terbalut oleh sensibilitas misteri - dan tentunya selaltu tidak flamboyan. Demikian adanya dengan koleksi Oscar Lawalata bertajuk "The Ceremony of Java" pada ajang Jakarta Fashion Week 2015. Sebuah koleksi yang penuh dengan kemewahan dan elegansi tanpa memerlukan usaha yang berlebih, ciptaan yang cocok bagi para bangsawan. 




Showcasing 48 looks, the collection displayed a variety of pieces, from dresses to bodices of sarong, all presented in a dégradé scheme of garish colours such as emerald green, midnight black, and umber brown. The highlight of the collection lies on the use of traditional Javanese prada and eagle motifs, that are embellished as golden prints on the fabrics. All in all, superb pieces are presented in minimal silhouette of fine drapery that flatters a women's figure. Emphasising on understated luxury that is intricately made with fine taste, the collection familiarise us  with a known appeal from Oscar Lawalata.

Menghadirkan 48 tampilan looks, berbagai gaun, atasan dari sarong, dan bawahan hadir dalam berbagai gradasi warna seperti hijau emerald, hitam pekat, dan cokelat umber. Familiaritas selalu terasa dari koleksi Oscar, yang mengedepankan siluet minimal dengan teknik draperi yang membawa penampilan yang luwes dan mengaksentuasi lekuk tubuh wanita. Motif batik elang dan prada emas dari Jawa merupakan tontonan utama dari koleksi ini, yang dibubuhkan di atas berbagai pakaian, memberikan kesan mewah yang tetap setia kebudayaan Indonesia.
