Stripe This Summer Out and be Crazy!!

"It seems like walking the line is the big thing to do for next spring, with designers galore showing stripes. Thick or skinny, horizontal or vertical, it’s a trend to watch."

It’s the linear look this season, with stripes racing ahead of the fashion game. Stamping the collections with stripes, chevrons and pop-art zig-zags.  In fact, Stripes are a fashion favourite, and actually, this one is my favorite too. STRIPES are totally fills my closet. Some fashion trends get recycled every few years, and that seems to be the case with this season’s reappearance of wide stripes.

We've been seeing stripes for a while now on designer runways and in stores, and they're back for spring and summer 2013.  Stripes is a universal staple. the lined trend is a classic that always pops up, but this season in particular it’s showing real staying power. Many Designers have used stripes in many different ways for this season. And i am one of them. I decided to design one, shoes with stripes.

Since that was summer, i made a sneaker to gave more casual look and put some cool colors on it : white and blue. At first, i used a white laces for this design, then i found that was really boring even it had vertical and horizontal line in the whole shoes. So i changed the white laces into a green color, a shocking green one ! i think that was pop-up perfectly for this summer.
So, Stripe This  Summer Out and be Crazy!! Just like our crazy chevron stripes :) 
Happy stripie summer everyone!!

Saturday, August 17, 2013's totally has a Vintage Vibe

Hi everyone !

Glad finnaly find my lil time to write :D .. today i will review hello voila's best seller collection. yippieee!!! \o/
i found that many of fellas voila like this collection so much. It's named "PATRON Collection". 

Chocolet Patron

Bleu Patron

I design this oxfords shoes with pull up leather mix with paris cotton that has a beautiful kind of tribal pattern. At first i just made only the brown one. But since it has many fans that love this collection, i decided to make another variant color, and i choose the navy blue color. I think both of this oxfords shoes are perfect, especially for you who like the vintage things, because, like everyone said, "it's totally has a vintage vibe".

I am very happy that this patron collection wore by 3  awesome bloggers in town : Evita Nuh, Clara Devi and Stevia Indrawan. Yeaayy!!! Even Stevia Indrawan made full post with this patron on her blog.. check this blog out

I love to see they wore chocolate patron for their style. And I think they have different way to wear this patron in a good way ofcourse. So maybe it can give you ideas to wear patron oxfords. If you like the simple look, since the shoes has a a lot of colours and pattern you can combine  with the simple denim shirt and nude highwaist short for the simple look, just like stevia did. But since the oxfords shoes for years and years was a part from the menswear, the boyish look can be one of your perfect alternative style for you, like  Evita nuh did. She combined this oxfords with vintage pants, those look really screaming a vintage vibe right? :D... But if you prefer to cute look, you can combine your style like Clara Devi did for her outfit :D

So which's your favorite? Simple look, Boyish look, Cute look, or even you have your own look?

Glow Your Dark Lights Out

I have had an incredibly busy week in crazy Bandung city.. It is hard to feel alive when you are hurtling through the colourful bustling streets but couldn't really enjoy it. it's totally drive me mad. All the routine things just killing me sometime.Work, Love, Life.. i know it's kind of depression feeling or something. But it's not that i wanna share with you guys. And i am surely sure, that everyone had ever felt the same way just like i did. But one thing that you have remember, Pain can be our greatest teacher. It's leads us to the place where we'd never go our own. Both positive and negative experience take us to where we are now. All i wanna say that out of the darkness must come a light. Some says, that is always darkness just before a dawn. 

why i told you about it? because it's true!! At least it's happened to me..The lights finally found me :D

That day i felt so depress and stress out. everything seemed so wrong.. Then I just remember that i have a little thing to do that time..Hello Voila - my shoes brand - need a new design for the production. At first, it was so hard to think  and design a new thing for my shoes brand when i felt so down. But then the "light" came out..and "THE LUMIERE" was just born.

What i love about this Lumiere design, it's very honest. I mean, it was really what i felt. All the sad things, pain and the darkness that i felt become a beautiful things, hehe :P .. And when the first time i saw lumiere, i think of how beautiful pain it is when you see in different way. So if you feel down just be brave, face it! and believe that God's alive and well, then you will see the light soon. When it happened, Happiness is all you'll feel. After i realize that, all good things are popping out in my life. I am so grateful..And then, this Lumiere collection has become one of voila's best seller. Thank you for everyone who bought of this collection.  I hope when you feel sad and the darkness around you,  from this shoes you'll remember that the lights will comes out to find you :)

Back in Some Colors

Hi there! It's been quiet here lately. I don't really have any proper time to update the blog, but finnaly get this little time to updated. so many things that i wanna tell you about,,but i need a loooong way to write it on .so for now i just wanna show you the latest collection of voila . here's the CHOCA collection..

Oxfords shoe has become a trend now and it's no longer for men only! I think it's a great trend for women as well. The greatest thing about the Oxford shoe is the versatility and comfort! Wearing an oxford shoe is an ideal choice when you want to wear a shoe with the comfort of a ballet flat but with a bit more style. I designed this collection with a simple shape. But since it's for women i put some bright colors on it. i think the bright color will balanced the femininity of  the mainly look on this shoes.

 I used a suede leather for the upper of this collection. Suede is a type of leather with a napped finish, commonly used for jacket, shoes, purses, furniture and other items.  I choose 3 variant colors of this collection : fuchsia, Tosca green and yellow mustard. Then i changed the third color into yellow lime because it's kind a hard to find a stable one. Every time  i bought the mustard suede for the production ,the mustard color is always bit different. The color always changes, i never found the same color like I've got for the first time. So I decided to change the third color into yellow lime. And i think it's quite cute :) .

Pinky Choca
Yellow Choca

By the way, the yellow one was wear by one of  Indonesia blogger : Mitha Komala.. Who doesn't know about her? she's one of greatest blogger in here. She has significantly simple style and also chic at the same time. If you still don't know about her, go visit her blog : Letters To Juliete
