indonesian fashion


Now and then I like to look at fashions east of India.

I spotted an Indonesian book of fashion illustrations (Cantik Elegan dengan Kebaya XL aka  Beautiful and Elegant in Kebaya XL) on my travels. It has a 100 odd illustrations of kain-kebaya for larger women (apparently to break away from the sarong-kebayas are for slender Singapore Girl kind of feeling). The illustrated lady looks pretty cool and there are numerous patterns and vivid colours in there. Kind of a mix of indigenous Indonesian and Islamic influences

The pics are not the best, I only had my phone on me.
