We finally did it. After much-needed preparation and representing the #NEIGHBOURTEAM was our co-founder Gregorius Andre, who managed to co-host our first talkshow event, ‘Menswear Next’ at the UNIMATIC Launch Event’s by The Goods Dept. Joining us was the host, The Goods Dept. co-founder, Leonard Theosabrata and five representative of the nine Indonesian brands, which participate in the event.
Before the talkshow, nine local brands; Bluesville, Public Culture, UNTOLD, Voyej, Elhaus, Pot Meets Pop Denim, L.O.C, AYE&CO, and Elders Company have completed the styling sessions by dressing up seven mannequins, which are displayed at the venue, The Goods Dept. Pacific Place. These brands showcased their latest products.
Meanwhile, only five brand representatives who actually spoke at the talkshow. These were Direz Zender of Bluesville, Aditya Pratama of Voyej, Randhi Pratama of AYE&CO, Heret Frasthio of Elders Company, and Yungz of UNTOLD. These industry’s front men shared their lookouts on today’s local menswear scene as insiders. The discussion revolved around breaking down the current menswear trend, their visions of the upcoming trends, and starting to set up our own trends rather than following the international trends.
The full line up of UNIMATIC Watches were also present, where visitors also could try on the watches. The promised raffle was also conducted, unfortunately none of the chosen names present, so the UNIMATIC U1-DWN must be kept. The rest of the night was concluded with finger foods, iced tea, and beers by The Goods Cafe and hoping to join in future talkshows with our fellow neighbours.
