Finding Kimono & Vintage Shops in Kyoto (Part 2)

So you have seen what Rogers vintage shop in Kyoto has to offer. So where did my search of my kimono end? It was in Chicago, at Teramachi shopping arcade, just few shops away from Rogers. Here are i saw sea of used and vintage kimonos — for kids, boys, girls, married women, men, yutaka, along with the belts and other accessories. I spent like one and half hour looking for the “it “komono for my client and I hope the time worth spent. Check out the photos below. The other photos were taken in the first kimono shop that I went to. It’s called Mimoro, on the top list in the google search. The collection here is endless. I was overwhelmed as all the kimonos are “gorgeous, more than kawaii” as the PR lady put it. There is no kimono that I didnt like in the shop but unfortunately my budget was a bit tight, so I had to leave the shop with the hope that I found one with the right price.

Behind The Scenes: Vintage At Jakarta Do Art 2014

This is another behind the scenes video shot and edited by Ozi, this time it’s on Jakarta Do Art, an event held at Pondok Indah Mall early this month. I uploaded the video here now — otherwise it becomes “sooo last year”. The video highlights cool arts by talented do-art artists,  products by partners, and a workshop on “decorating with vintage” by Jakarta Vintage, which is supported by Martha Stewart Living Indonesia. So if you missed the event, you can always watch this video anytime. It’s in youtube. Happy watching, and oh Happy New Year!

Behind The Scenes: Xmas Decoration for Dulux Let’s Colour

Jakarta Vintage was back in the most inspiring interior design TV program: Dulux Let’s Color, aired last Sunday at 9am on Metro TV.  This time it’s about …Xmas decoration –on the table, on the wall, and well, overall. It may look simple and easy when you see it– but the preparations are quite intensive, thanks to Jakarta Vintage team: Eleni, Maya, Sigit, and Zai. As you can see in this video –shot and edited by our in-house photographer Ozi– our take on Xmas decoration is…. plenty of deer, no Xmas tree, and …vintage all the way. Ho-ho-ho. Happy watching and wait for the photos and the video in my next postings. Merry Xmas holidays:)

Behind The Scenes: Color Trends 2014

This is a very late post, I know…but I thought you would want to know how three interior arrangements and decorations are planned, prepared and presented. Yes, this is the Color Trends 2014 behind the scenes video. Enjoy!

Behind The Scene: Photo Shoots of A Vintage Apartment

This is what happens when you have a photogenic space: media loves it! This three bedroom apartment in Thamrin Jakarta Pusat is just that. Last week two interior magazines came there to style, restyle, edit-in, and edit-out to make it more newsworthy and center spread material. At least that’s what I hope — as this space is designed by Jakarta Vintage. Enjoy the video –shot and developed by Fachrurozi or Ozi– and tell me what you think.

Vintage A la Priayi

Vintage as we know it can be slightly different from a Javanese point of view. Look at  this house in Yogja, which to me looks like a priyayi house, if you know what I mean. Every single thing in the house is either antique or vintage –all in fine condition– and of course with a strong Javanese touch. According to Sigit, the owner, who is not a priyayi by the way –he is actually a banker based in Jakarta–  it is important that things in the house are kept in one theme, in harmony with each other and in order. Typical Javanese philosophy. And somehow it works just fine. This home is just beautiful. PS: Priyayi as Clifford Greetz put it: is the traditional aristocratic class of the elites in traditional Javanese society.

Vintage For Auction in Kemang (Part 4): The Bidding

The Retro & Beyond Vintage Auction moment finally took place at the Lippo Mall Kemang Village, on November 10, 2012. This is the first event as well as the launch event of Jakarta Vintage. I would like to thank you all for participating in the event and making it memorable. For those who missed the auction –and the action, have a look at this video, shot and edited by Dimaz. Looking forward to seeing you in the next events. Have a vintageful day:)

Vintage for Auction in Kemang (Part 2): Behind The Scene

together in a nice way is –as it turned out– not an easy job. We did some trials and errors, but the result is –I must say– worth the sweat. The items look much nicer in pictures –ooops– well I guess that’s what you get when a photographer (Ricky), a stylist (Veve), a vintage junkie (Sigit) and an ad man (that’s me) work together and shine. Enjoy the video (shot and edited by Dimas) and have a nice long weekend:)
