Fluid Colour

Prestige Indonesia - - Rsvp -

Renowned In­done­sian fash­ion de­signer, Se­bas­tian Gu­nawan, along with his part­ner Christina Panarese, launched his lat­est col­lec­tion at the Ho­tel Mu­lia Se­nayan Ball­room, on Fri­day, Septem­ber 21. Ti­tled Cro­mia that means colour in Greek, the col­lec­tion is in­spired by Henri Matisse, a French fau­vism artist who’s known for his use of colour and his fluid and orig­i­nal draughts­man­ship. His paint­ings ex­pressed emo­tion with wild, of­ten dis­so­nant colours with­out re­gard for the sub­ject’s nat­u­ral colours. “Matisse’s au­dac­ity to jux­ta­pose colours and his strong two-di­men­sional form in­spired us to cre­ate th­ese colour­ful col­lec­tion.” says the de­signer.

Cristina Pana­resse also adds, “Other than shape, we also ex­plores con­trast­ing colours that’s quite un­usual for the eyes, dishar­mo­nious and wild, but in­trin­si­cally beau­ti­ful.” The show is opened by a pink 3D top and green damask palazzo pants that de­fines the whole col­lec­tion. Gu­nawan cre­ated 88 pieces in to­tal us­ing ma­te­ri­als like tulle, taffeta, mate­lassé, Mikado and jacquard as well as show­cas­ing ac­ces­sories by Ri­naldy A. Yu­nardi. The de­signer in­cor­po­rated all the el­e­ments men­tioned be­fore with such ele­gance and op­u­lence that are Se­bas­tian Gu­nawan trade­mark. The colour­ful show is closed by three wed­ding gowns with ex­quis­ite de­tails and em­broi­deries.
