Batik Heritage preserves the delicate art of batik tulis
Like the science of action and reaction, the popularity of athleisure in some collections has inspired unapologetic couture-level elegance in others. Take, for example, the head-to-toe cottoncandy ruffle columns from the likes of Erdem and Rodarte. Simone Rocha, known for her penchant for lace, has even taken inspiration from imperial figures in the East, while Marc Jacobs sent Pierrot- collared models down his spring/summer runway. So go for that Cinderella moment with a chinoiserie-inspired purse by Christian Dior—and those tulle-frosted pumps by Jimmy Choo can be the cherry on your frothy sartorial cake.
