Fashion designer Biyan Wanaatmadja presented his womenswear spring/summer 2020 collection on May 23 at the Ritz-Carlton, Pacific Place, Jakarta.
The show was set among numerous trees and gentle music that evoked the feeling of being in a forest.
Under the theme"The Wonder Garden", the collection featured the designer’s trademark floral motif and sequins, along with an unexpected layering of fabrics. Tones of blush and pink came together with forest green, orange, poppy red and black.
New silhouettes of loose ankle-length pants, puffy sleeves and pleated skirts accompanied the ever-present A-line and oversized dresses of Biyan’s collection. Models wore their hair in neat knots or braids, while the nude makeup looks complimented oversized, colorful earrings.
Prior to the fashion show, Biyan shared about how he came to the theme.
“In the ever-quickening rhythm of life, we’re easily caught up in our routines without noticing that something’s missing,” he said. “I make an effort to spend time savoring nature, and in between slowly walking through gardens. For instance, there’s a kind of peace that slowly speaks to me. Sitting down among the greenery feels like a sanctuary of nature to me, which became the background for The Wonder Garden.”
The sense of nature deepened when Biyan accidentally found old archives of vintage floral and botanical images upon cleaning up his office. “It was such perfect timing, and there’s a sense of enthusiasm that I immediately shared with my team. We developed the theme further from there.”
