ROXY New Batik collection and National Batik day

9:49:00 PM

Hello, today is National Batik day here in Indonesia. So as I tweeted yesterday, I'm wearing Batik today to commemorate the National Batik day! Lucky for me, I received a couple of samples from ROXY the other day. And it was both in Batik print! Yes people, ROXY is doing batik now, I am so happy to hear that. I feel so proud of my country's heritage that an international brand such as ROXY is doing a Batik collection based on Indonesian traditional batik prints. I've read in Fashionese Daily that Simon McGreggor, Marketing Executive of Quicksilver South East Asia said that this is the first time for Roxy to launch a collection based on Batik, and will continuously designed new collection using Batik. Yeay!

Do you know that Batik is originally from Indonesia? Batik is our heritage and we proudly wears it :D So anyway, speaking about ROXY, they are launching their new Batik collection and will be available throughout South East Asia. This new Batik collection were inspired from traditional Batik motif/pattern such as Mega Mendung (Rain Clouds), Parang (Daggers) and Kawung.


ROXY sent me two items from their collection. In above photo you can see the Mega Mendung print on the left, and the Kawung print on the right. The collection consists of several kinds of clothing such as T-shirts, Polo Shirts, Shirts and Jackets for men, also Fashion Tees, Skirts and Dresses for women as well as various accessories such as sandals, etc. All of the products are available for children and adults.

What I like about this collection is they also attached a story behind the Batik print in every item. So you can read about "Mega Mendung" and a history fact about "Kawung" or "Parang" when you bought the items.

So today I decided to wear the Mega Mendung for the National Batik day. Here's what it said about "Mega Mendung" in the attached card:

"The Mega Mendung (rain cloud) motif is a dominant theme in Cirebon Batik. The graduated colors of the clouds against a string background show Chinese influence. The clouds originated from design on bronze vessels during the Chou Dynasty in China in the 7th century BC.

According to Chinese mythology, the Nymph Goddess of Love revealed her presence through rain clouds during the day and through rain mists during the night. The Goddess of Love is therefore implied in the batik with the mega mendung pattern"

And here's the revelation ^o^ :

I just love this top. The price tag on this one is IDR 245k.

Back to the National Batik day, I'm happy to see some other people also wearing Batik today, they must be commemorating National Batik day just like me :) But I'm pretty much sure my Roxy "Batik Mega Mendung" asymmetrical tank is one of those that stands up among others ^o^ I am so loving both of the clothes they sent me, and in this post I just want to show how much I love this tank top.

I like the Mega Mendung print (me and hubby have long been admiring the mega mendung print for some reason). Other reason why I love the top is because of the comfy fabric and the asymmetrical cut on the lower side part. I love the color combination too. Overall, I love everything about it. It's so versatile too, I can wear it with almost anything. The half-colored design in the back is such a bold touch to the top. I got many people commenting and asking about the top all day :)



More details on the pattern:



You can get these Batik collection in a variety of Quiksilver vertical stores, surf stores such as Planet Surf and Point Break, and in their flag stores in leading department stores in Indonesia (PIM1 Jakarta, PVJ Bandung, Tunjungan Plaza 4 Surabaya). And like I mentioned earlier, this collection will be available in various countries in Southeast Asia such as Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia.
Thanks ROXY Indonesia for endorsing me with the fab clothes! Ah, I can't wait to show you the other one I received from Roxy, the pink "Kawung" buttoned down top, it's pink and it's cute! :D Wait for my next post :)
