Indonesia Tatler March 2015

1 March, 2015


Fearless and Fashionable

This month, Dato’ Farah Khan graces our cover with her modern contemporary look, as she unravels her secrets behind her successful couture line, her lifestyle, and how she maintains her youthful appearance. Dato’ Farah also tells us that food and fashion never fail to keep her on her toes. Born into a diamond merchant father and a boutique-owner mother, Dato’ Farah has been exposed to the fashion industry since a very young age. The beautiful lady is well known for her bold and glamorous designs.

What is Indonesia Tatler without its food, fashion, and leisure sections? This month, we present you with an afternoon out at Izakaya Issei, a casual Japanese eatery in the hip neighbourhood of Senopati, serving the best of light nibbles and food from the Land of the Rising Sun. Izakaya Issei features a fabulous Sake bar with a wide selection of libations, making it one of the most sought-after after-work hangout spots in South Jakarta. Our fashion highlight this month is the Lady Web, a new style of handbag by Gucci, highlighting the Bohemian luxury setting that underlies Frida Giannini’s interpretation of the brand’s contemporary style. True beauty brought to life! In the Finer Things in Life section, Goran Aleks of Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort speaks to us on the French elegance that’s reflected in the resort’s architecture and hospitality.

Last but not least, let me conclude with a great quote from Japanese philosopher Daisaku Ikeda: “There is no one as strong as a person whose heart is always filled with gratitude.” Yes—let’s suffuse this month with appreciation and thankfulness, and let’s keep our attitude in check, even in the most difficult times. I hope this issue provides you, our dear readers, with all the information you need in ensuring you have the latest, up-to- date news on what’s keeping the
buzz going around town!
