This Friday, we will celebrate the 18th Annual Indonesia Tatler Ball, and we’re proud to announce that our theme is “Indonesia Tanah Airku”. As proud and patriotic Indonesians, for this year’s ball we will celebrate our country. And, of course, one of the biggest elements of the biggest party in the country is what you should be wearing. But don’t panic! In conjunction with our theme, we’ve collected five looks for you to wear this year. See you on the red carpet!

With our Tanah Airku theme, why not look traditional, too? Batik, a centuries-old tradition, has come a long way with tons of patterns and designs to choose from. Add a traditional yet modern touch to your look with this head-to-toe outfit we’ve picked out just for you.


Let’s start with the gown. The Biyan Official gown features batik patterns with a unique modern twist. A little red lipstick, putting up your hair in a bun, and you’re good to go. But, what about your jewellery and accessories? Don’t worry, we didn’t forget. This gold-plated metal clutch from Iwan Tirta Private Collection x Rinaldy Yunardi’s collection will give your dress the extra pizazz it needs. Also, don’t forget to treat your fingers to these stunning John Hardy rings.

If you’re a classic girl and you like keeping it Western, we urge you to go for a typical black and gold look. Black and gold is a deadly combination that will make anyone look stunning. These two colours complement each other so well, making sure you look classy throughout the night.

This Peggy Hartanto black gown will turn heads throughout the night. The extra slit at the bottom just adds to the whole beauty of this piece. And what have we got for accessories? Go all-out on the earrings with this stunning Tulola ear cuff that will give you an extra shine. Make sure to get your hair up in a ponytail or pinned to the side so everyone can see your earpiece. Last, the unbeatable red sole brand will help you cover your heel needs. Christian Louboutin gold heels will definitely complete your look. Don’t forget the red lipstick!

As Audrey Hepburn says: “There is a shade of red for every woman.” Red, the most powerful of all colours, makes for a stunning choice for a ball. Dark or light red, the colour screams beauty and fierceness. Stick to the theme and go all red and white at the Tatler Ball this year.


Sebastian Gunawan will make you look like a real-life Cinderella with this super-detailed red gown. With layers and different shades of red, you’ll be turning heads all night. Add to the sophistication with this Mondial earring and finish your look with Jimmy Choo’s white pencil heels. Thank God for the ankle straps to keep you intact if you get tired from too much dancing! Definitely ball-ready now, aren’t you?

Indonesia’s traditional outfit of kebaya has taken a turn into keeping up with modern fashion trends. But one thing’s for sure: putting on a fancy kebaya will never go out of date, that’s the beauty of it. 


Anne Avantie will make your kebaya dreams come true with this fancy piece covering red, black, and gold: all three colours that define class. Go extra on the jewellery with this John Hardy bracelet piece and perhaps end your look with a Rinaldy Yunardi headpiece, because what is a kebaya look without the traditional konde?

Go chic or go home. Pretty in pink is a ball look that will never go out of style, and we’re here to help you style it perfectly. The beauty of a ball is seeing everyone’s creativity in dressing up and getting a whole lot of inspiration, as well.


Mel Ahyar’s avant-garde gown will make you look like the belle of the ball. With a tube cut and gorgeous flower embellishments, nothing will go wrong with this look. Also, make sure your jewellery shines out with these delightful Chopard earrings. Last, but definitely not least, this Tex Saverio round clutch will give you the extra sparkle you need and definitely the space, as well.
