[ARCHIVE] HOMME IMPROVEMENT - One of my work for (old) Men's Folio Indonesia back in 2011, with the same title and opening, but different products, so enjoy reading (in Bahasa Indonesia), some of you might be already read the article. Btw I'm on escape for two days even though I'm kinda sick right now, I'm going to Malang, perfect time before fasting month, I will eat a lot and be happy ever after.
And also the sample package from Mankind UK has arrived, I tried some of them and love them instantly, I'll tell you the details soon.
"Hey I need your advice, I am looking for a bag, a big size bag, classic, stylish, but doesn't looks like a travel bag, I will use this bag as an everyday bag and also suits for work. These bags are my options
A. Givenchy Antigona Large
B. Balenciaga Work
C. YSL Chyc Cabas Large
D. Prada Saffiano or any others options from you? Please let me know" - Dimas, 23yo, Medical Doctor
So here is the thing, my assumption when I see a doctor bag, it's must be made of stiff leather, because you might be carrying a liquid medicine or something, and if you want it doesn't looks like a travel bag, so the avoid the duffell bag, it's gonna be holdall. If you are someone working in a hospital, choose something more relax like a black, brown, chestnut, shades of grey, it's just for keep your image that you has a serious job, moreover you want it to be the classic one. No neon, metallic or even see-through, I do not want anything happens to your patients. But I'm of course going with Givenchy or Prada according to your choices, but there are some bags on my mind and might be it will help your needs, here they are:
Holdall with very small and short handle, a big one compartment, and absolutely very strong statement with a simple appearances also in a good color;
VALEXTRA Brown Leather Tote Bag
SERAPIAN Black Leather Gatsby Bag
If you still on YSL
Or if those bag are too big to carrying all the time or too stuffy for your personality, the other option in mind is the new Alexander McQueen Black Heroic Briefcase or The masculine version of 3.1 Phillip Lim Tote Bag for something contemporary and up-to-date. You might be buy it online on Mr. Porter or you may check the new site for curating the goods you like or I like, here is mine Modlery.com/Deluxshionist .

ADAMIST - The hottest (from the oven) menswear line by Jacky Rusli was mesmerizing me when the first time I see the slightly view of Adamist collection on Men's Folio Indonesia Revival Party. I could not saying that much about Adamist, like how does it feel wearing Adamist, the technique of their shirt making, the fabrics, etc but I saw them 'live' in front of my face and I was so in love with them, but there is insecurity in me, it's like that I need to spend half of my day in the gym if I want to wear Adamist, well blame this video below ;)...
Trench Peacoat - Uniqlo | Pants - Armani Exchange | Shirt - Vintage | Sunglasses - Guess & Fake Pearls
ALL THE HAPPY THINGS - Happy weekend for all, happy working for some people on offshore, happy wedding day for our colleague Dery & Chaha, happy holiday for everyone whose in vacation, happy to see people around me being happy.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand no idea what I was thinking lately (or a couple months ago - before I rejoined my current magazine) with the way I dressed up. I think the bottom line is to put a feminine touch on my look (ya I think I did said that in my first post when I was wearing that sparkles necklace), but yeah, maybe it's just the way I am express my other fashion side & tried to had some fashion experimental or whatever it is, well let's say that I am looking for my ultimate fashion identity or it just because I won't be boring with myself.
There are a statements, debates, opinions about how fast this Industry have influenced so many people inside of lifestyle, culture, habit and moreover as one way to behave, identity, and status, and for me still it's the way for me to have some fun, although sometime I need to do something to behave and identity. When I see all my looks in this blog, hmmm I think and I really feel it's pure for fun, but I'm almost 25 yo, yaaa perhaps it still can be fun, but sooner or later if I still want be here, it will turn to be a serious deal, it will be both between seriously fun and fun seriously.
