On Last August, our necklace was seen on AMICA magazine. It was a tribute spread for Alexander McQueen. We were astonished by the result. The photographs were amazing. It is a privilege for us, that our pieces were paired with Sapto Djokokartiko's mini dress.
Thornandes James explaining his spread..
'Odds And Ends is actually my personal ambition to pay respect and commemorate The Great Alexander McQueen. I invited six local Indonesian designers to pay a tribute to Alexander MQueen by making a creation that inspired by his works infused by Indonesian heritage values and not forgetting thei personal style of designs. The result are breathtaking with epic background of metal recycling junkyard in Cilegon.
Adrian Gan creating a dramatic collars and constructed dress the signature of McQueen from Indonesia weaving mixed with rattan embellishment. Adesagi Kirana chose McQueen's knits drapery and mixed with his pretty romantic style big Rosette from stiffed tulle. Sapto Djokokartiko creating a superb handcrafts ruffle dress from traditional fan made from sandalwood. Andreas Odang inspired by McQueen's perfect tailoring. G.H.O.S.T jueleire took the youth and fun part of McQ labels, the infamous skulls. And lastly, Irsan creating a molded leather bustier tops with dramatic big ruffles skirt as his grief of McQueen's tragic death. While I specifically decided to mashed all the collections and sadness from Spring Summer 2009 collection look.'
