The Didit Hediprasetyo woman for Spring 2013 is inspired by the tropical reverie, the flowing spring water of Ubud, embracing herself in long dresses with infinitely sophisticated but sensual lines.
Languid and elegant, in Bali or in Paris, Didit's girl pours herself into a sheath dress, her naked skin warmed by the sun. The garment hugs her movements and caresses her curves, revealing flesh here and there.
The collection is structured as tableaux rather than chapters. There is the black monochrome of an undershirtbeneath an asymmetrical dress whose neckline falls nearly to the hips. The white monochrome of a strapless model crossed over with a scarf placed lightly on the shoulder, enveloping one arm so as to bare the other to greater effect.
Then pastel, an aquatic mint green, imbues dresses falling into drapes right to the floor, with singlet shoulders and a belt made of the traditional Indonesian brocade called songket.
There are also the reflections of crystalline water, of Japanese pools full of quivering Koi carp. Countless little fish in pure colors, including black, orange, white and blue, orange, white, are printed on the velvet of a strapless dress, while the mesh of an orangey summer wool dress echoes the pattern of the scales.
