SWANK S/S 2013 'COUNTING DAYS' with MICHAEL COOLS

SWANK IS BACK! wel.. not exactly back, they never leave.. anyhow, now they are back with thicker DNA, Gloomy, romantic, with a touch of sex.
 
For their Spring-Summer 2013 collection, SWANK inspired by the dramatic side of loneliness. 'COUNTING DAYS' brings up the story of a couple that seperated by higher forces, SWANK created its own gloomy sad story without forgetting the melancholic, hopelessly romantic, yet tragic world where the abandoned hearts left aside. Jailhouse has been the main inspiration for the 'Counting Days' collection.
Representated in this collection with the counting bars application in our tshirt and shorts, barbwire prints, embroidery, and special accessories collection collaborated with an Indonesian artisan, Emilia Nico. my favorite is the barbwire embroidered outer, and the printed tshirt, and the barbwire accessories!
All collection will be available in our webstore www.webstore-sswank.com.

'BEAUTE FATALE' a hijab fashion spread with TRI HERLAMBANG for AQUILA MAGAZINE MARCH 2013

For this month the Singapore based fashion hijab magazine, Aquila, i was asked to contribute for them again. apparently they like it sooo much and they ask me for using it as cover. and I said yes.
 
The Concept is, an independent woman, androginy, who having her time in the Salon. i named it 'Beaute Fatale' but it was published as 'Judge not' oh well. anyway, Beaute fatale is a phrase in french to describe a woman that is really beautiful but also strong, independent, and brave. I named it Beaute Fatale, as we see a very strong yet masculine side of her, with a very strong aura of beauty too. the balance in her made her the 'beaute fatale'.. temptacious, yet dangerous.
