Ed­i­to­rial Note

Indonesia Tatler - - Contents - Mil­lie Stephanie Luk­ito CEO and Bureau Chief

It’s that time of year again! Yes, our Gen­er­a­tion T list (aka “Gen.t”) of 50 of In­done­sia’s high achiev­ers and movers and shak­ers all un­der 40 years of age is of­fi­cially re­leased on Au­gust 10—follow our web­site for the of­fi­cial un­veil­ing and for more de­tails of this mo­men­tous event. Mean­while, our cover story this al­most-au­tum­nal month of Au­gust fo­cuses on four of th­ese fan­tas­tic fig­ures drawn from the worlds of tech­nol­ogy, life­style, fash­ion, and more from which “Tribe” mem­bers choose the cream of the crop. The Tribe con­sists of 21 hand­picked lu­mi­nar­ies: the coun­try’s most pow­er­ful and in­flu­en­tial lead­ers from th­ese in­dus­tries, all of whom—along with the hon­ourees them­selves— are our na­tion’s proud­est rep­re­sen­ta­tives for an ini­tia­tive that ranges right across the Asia-wide net­work of seven other Tatler ti­tles.

So this is­sue fea­tures in­ter­views with the Co­founder of ESQA Cos­met­ics, Kezia Toemion; the CEO and Co-founder of Qraved, Steven Kim; the Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of EBI Watch, Kar­tika Wi­nata; and ac­tor Dion Wiyoko. Each has some­thing fas­ci­nat­ing to say about his or her up­com­ing projects, how they mea­sure suc­cess, what leav­ing a legacy means to them, and fun facts you may very well not know about them. Who’d have thought, for ex­am­ple, that Qraved pi­o­neer Steven Kim en­joys toy­ing with Lego blocks? Find out more in “Bright Sparks”.

This month also sees the open­ing of the Asian Games 2018, which means we shift gears into a sportier tone in “Let the Games Be­gin!”. Here, we chat with six of the ath­letes who are the na­tion’s of­fi­cial In­done­sian teams’ Am­bas­sadors, dig­ging into their prepa­ra­tions, both men­tal and phys­i­cal, for the chal­lenges that lie ahead. One thing’s for sure: we wish them all the luck in the world—not that they’ll need it, be­cause prepa­ra­tion, as we all know, is key to ev­ery­thing in life.

Else­where in this is­sue of In­done­sia Tatler we have a heart-to-heart with for­mer art dealer Jais Darga, whose il­lus­tri­ous ca­reer has proven that a woman can not only sur­vive but also thrive in the male-dom­i­nated world of in­ter­na­tional art deal­ing. And bring­ing bal­ance to the is­sue, sea­soned politi­cian Dr Ferry J. Ju­liantono re­veals to us what has driven him to ef­fect changes in the coun­try he loves so much.

And so it re­mains for me to say: I hope you en­joy all th­ese sto­ries plus our usual round-up of reg­u­lar reads. Happy Au­gust!

Some­thing for all the ladies es­pe­cially cu­rated by Saint Lau­rent
