Simultaneously, two looks are part of the brand’s latest collaboration project with Yogyakarta- based graffiti artist Tuyuloveme. Fused together with everyday’s patterns are Tuyuloveme’s signature characters and symbols: Tuyul, Graffiti, Flowers, and Stars.

This collection is inspired by the natural disasters that keep happened, which is turned into the basic ideas from TOTON F/W 2020 collection. Reference of Aerial-view photographs of oil palm plantations between the tropical forests of Sumatra and Kalimantan underlie the composition of embroidery on organza, the result of the development of a design by TOTON.
