“Nostalgia” is the theme in BATEEQ’s latest runway collection which was launched on Tuesday, 31st August 2021. By applying retro nuances through batik motifs, Nostalgia offers a sartorial style and a preppy touch.
The texture of the Kawung batik on Jacquard fabric is presented in 2 (two) colors; dark blue and cream. The main attraction of this entire collection is the layered detailing and the collar that can be used as a strap or ribbon with a loose silhouette. There are also accessories such as a quilted square and circular shoulder bag that can be folded into a handbag.
In Indonesia, batik has a deep-rooted tradition, where the blend of lines, shapes and detailing unite to form unique motifs that have significant meaning as a message, prayer or hope.
In the Nostalgia collection, TINARI is a special design whereby Weton Jawa is presented as the main motif. The hope for the TINARI couple is depicted in 2 (two) types of motifs, namely the round Kawung motif which means perfection, purity and holiness, and the line-based Banji motif which means order in life.
