  6. Mad Hatter says:

    lovely girls, I like the flow of their hair

  7. Karina says:

    AHHH seriously blowing my mind!!!

  8. Sweetponds says:

    Not a fan of indonesian style. Shoes look like the daggy shoes my mum wears around the house. It all looks a little too ‘asian mum homewear’ to me…

    But then again, I didn’t expect a whole lot from Indonesia…

    Great pics though!

  9. norawoah says:

    I’m curious about those last pair of shoes. Very interesting…

  10. sabrina says:

    i agree with sweetponds, im not too enthused about the stuff in iesia or singapore, and they dont a real change of seasons either, its basically hot & sweaty humidity or raining… not my thing at all, then again im a northern european mode fan, espicially black winter gear… scandinavian style, the like.
    COME TO STOCKHOLM!!
    GO TO KOPENHAGEN!!

  11. Nora says:

    it looks like she (2e indo-girl) is wearing black wooden shoes :P

  12. anna says:

    Looks moisty…

    I’m originally from Indonesia and now in the US. I’m glad that you’re documenting the Jakarta street style! It’s definitely interesting to see what people wear without the changing weather. Personally, I think it’s actually more challenging to dress for year-round tropical weather than it is to hide under the plush coats and jackets and scarves.

    You have to do so much more with less clothing.

    Oh, and eat the food. It’s so delicious!

    I love the last girl’s bag.

    So far so great Yvan, are you plannin on visiting Bandung? or Yogyakarta? Bandung got a little more of the winter look, while Yogya has more traditional clothing (Batik esp.)
    Keep it up Yvan!

    Hi there,

    as much as the Indon styles aren’t my kind of style, I do think the women do “suit” the styles which they have picked for themselves.

    And yes, it’s true what Diandra said: it’s challenging to choose what to wear in hot and humid weather. But then again, just “black winter gear” alone doesn’t sound like the most exciting thing either does it?

    Weather may hamper personal dressing but personal style shouldn’t be dictated. By anyone.

  19. I like the barefoot guy in the background and the emerald green bag in the last one.

    I really like the first girls dress, and it seems maybe diy-able.

    “its basically hot & sweaty humidity or raining… not my thing at all” —> If only, yes, if only we Indonesians could magically change the weather to your liking, o Sabrina A Dit, so perhaps it would be just your thing.

  23. Anonymous says:

    definately ….not impressed.

  24. moreeeeeeee please… there’re more unique styles in Indonesia :)

  25. rena says:

    i dont think the weather dictates how great the fashion can be, its all personal. im a malaysian born, now in australia. i can see how style are diverse in aus because of the weather and the migrated style from around the world here. for all the pro-european fashionistasss, humid weather only takes away the great coats n jackets, but style can remain in different forms. maybe everyone should travel more out of their comfort zone to expand their fashion point of view.

  26. Eric Satie says:

    lol, i saw the first one and thought “omg it’s yoko ono”. Others are okay.

  27. Juliet says:

    I love the “sunbrellas” and loose fits.

  28. i love that the 1st girl has such a modern air yet in the background there is a traditional pushcart. fantastic!

  29. HA!
    I have the same shoes as the girl in the last picture. They’re from a Japanese online shoe store called Double Decker. Mine are pink, but I’m really feeling the white ones…

  30. I like your pictures,cute girl.
