Models Marcella, Katharina, and Dianna don Indonesian fashions in 'Eksplorasi Tradisi,' an editorial that references the country's traditional garb. Gracing the August 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Indonesia, this shoot features striking photography by Ryan Tandya.

This editorial boasts styling by Michael Pondaag who dresses his model cast in ornate and pattern-enriched pieces. Exploring rich textures and cultural accessories, this image series is the opposite of subtle. Its stylist pairs contemporary wardrobe picks with historical Indonesian jewels and headpieces, ultimately creating pairings that are a contemporary take on tradition.

Hair and makeup for 'Eksplorasi Tradisi' is the work of Qiqi Franky who references cultural beauty looks in the series. The photoshoot's Indonesian fashions are paired with striking floral arrangements and traditional umbrella props.
