Originally from Kompas, Minggu, 11 Oktober 2009 | 03:17 WIB

Armani, used BATIK? Along with Chloe, Paul Smith, and Dries van Noten as well?

Yes they were!!

Those well known designers indeed have used batik motives for their collections.  Dries van Noten, were using batik for summer and spring 2010 collections in Paris fashion week last thursday.

Chloe had chosen mega mendung from Cirebon, as well as Armani, in their collections.

Meanwhile, Van noten is known for using ethnic element in her designs. This time she used lereng, from Java’s motives. Also parang and flowers, lereng and knots, as in batik motives from Nusa Tenggara Timur.

It may have been contributed by her assistant who came from Indonesia, Heaven.

Heaven was working at Biyan Winaatmaja, an Indonesian well known designer, before he continued his study in Belgium.
