Review: ROXY New Batik Collection

12:17:00 AM

Roxy and Quiksilver have been releasing unique Batik collections since last year. I remember I did a review of their first Batik collection last year (an asymmetrical tunic and a pretty pink blouse) which were very gorgeous and really unique!! And just a couple of weeks ago ROXY sent me another package filled with a couple of items from their newest ROXY Batik collection

Here's what I received :

On September 26th 2011, Quiksilver and Roxy releases authentic surf batik collection in honor of Indonesia's National Batik day which falls on October 2nd. I would like to give a thumbs up for Quiksilver and Roxy who successfully adapted the centuries-old cloth making tradition into a fashionable and comfortable modern everyday apparel

Batik is one of Indonesia's traditional cloth, there's a certain way of making a Batik. There are also many type of Batik patterns/motifs and most of them are traditional patterns that are distinctive to certain areas where the Batik were originally produced.

From all of the many varieties of Batik pattern, Roxy adapted some of them into their newest Batik collection which are:  
Eklektik 
and  
Le Kawoeng
The Eklektik has a Polynesian-inspired motifs such as animals and plants, while Le Kawoeng has a motif influenced by the Kawung palm tree (the locals call it "pohon buah Kolang-Kaling"). The Kawung tree itself has a deep spiritual meaning. 

 I received a super comfy slouchy tee from the Eklektik collection + a cute skirt from the Le Kawoeng collection:
Here I'm wearing them together!

The Eklektik collection is basically similar with classic Batik, but the designs and colors varies following today's trend. Meanwhile the Le Kawoeng is influenced by one of the traditional classic Batik pattern.
Both designs are cute and very modern, I love how Roxy incorporate Batik patterns into such a very comfortable casual everyday wear like these. So now you can wear Batik as daily wear!

First thing I noticed was the fabric. The fabric is so soft and really really comfortable to wear. It allows your skin to breathe and it falls perfectly great on the body, just as expected from a brand as big as Roxy.

Today I would like to highlight the slouchy tee from the Eklektik collection:

I love how the slouchy tee has a very casual look with just a little bit of Batik pattern on the neckline and on the chest pocket (a tee with pocket, how cute is that?!). Love the green and purple combination, and love the eclectic pattern too! Here I paired it with an old green necklace and a purple bangle/hair fastener to accentuate the color combination of the Batik pattern.

I kinda like the knotted style at the front because it gives a little something more special than just a casual white tee. It is also very versatile because you can wear it tucked inside your skirt/jeans, or just wear it un-tucked. You can also hide the knot by folding it up inside or let the knot hang out there to get that casual beach girl wear. This tee has a v-neck style and is perfect for a beach / bikini cover-up too.

I also love the Roxy sign on the back of the tee because you wouldn't expect to see anything back there, right? It only just add the cool vibe to it ;)


I love how breezy it makes me feel (especially in a hot day), so I already wore it twice! ;) I'll put up another post with another outfit combination tomorrow to show you how versatile this tee is.
Roxy Eklektik slouchy tee, Roxy Le Kawoeng skirt, Payless silver flats, black vintage bag (hand me down) from mom, green vintage necklace (also hand me down from mom), purple bangle from MIL


The ROXY Batik collections are in stores now, and both collections are available in tops, skirts, long pants, dresses, and tees. The price range is IDR 125.000 - IDR 575.000.
This tee that I received above has a price tag of IDR 195.000.

Stay tuned for tomorrow because I will post about the other item I received from Roxy which is the purple skirt from the Le Kawoeng collection!
