It's 6th generation already since its debut on 2012. I looked at their 2nd show and found out the new aspiration on it!

Rani Hatta
Rani Hatta label is focused on sporty luxurious. I love the way she made a creative concept like "Detention Room" for school looks. Inspired by Rockstar Games (2006), it consists of many different characters of high school models from the nerdy, sporty, decisive, narcissistic, rascal, to the sleepy guy whom we'll always find in class. They are just too cool for school!

The brand's name already tell everything, the looks are about Japanese ready to wear inspiration. Bring the "MOON" showcased as their latest preview. They are more formal attire for the taste of freedom in expression and art, with clean finishing.

I often heard about this brand before, they always have something new and fresh to show off whether in men's and women's section through every campaign. The latest collection is "GEMINI 2017" where each article have another different options. Bold in orange that is the new black.

A blend of contemporary and heritage creation always makes me feel like I'm time traveling to someplace between modern fairy-tales and outer space from beginning till the end. What we got from this show is the brand trying to say something about social issues that's happening lately in our culture.
