Inspired by the idyllic way of life, bateeq presents its Spring/Summer 2019 Collection: ‘Kampong’. The pace is slower and lifestyle simpler as a result of the harmonious and more peaceful environment We reﬂect on one’s childhood memories – of a period when technology was less present, and time was spent more with family and/or in nature.
The pieces feature four motifs: Nandur Pari, Pranata Mangsa, Saskara, and Sundara – consisting of earthtone colors (terra-cotta red, sand-brown, khaki green) and blue jeans. In addition to modal and polyester,
the brand continues its environmentally-friendly practices through the application of Bemberg and Tencel fabrics. Staying true to the brand’s DNA, the designs fuse together traditional batik elements and modern inﬂuences in order to create a collection that celebrates the setting that makes up the majority of Indonesia’s countryside. It is a representation of certain feelings – innocence, naïveté, nostalgia, and playfulness – and a reminder to people to view the world with less skepticism and more enthusiasm, just as children do.
