A collection which talks about beauty in the balance of feminine and masculine energy. Lilith is the second elusive moon or dark moon which exist between the earth and the sun. The subtlely of its existence is translated through the use of 'quiet' details on the pieces in this collection. The combination of suits/ shirts, harsh lines achieved through embroidery of tulle, pleating on crisp fabric reflects the masculine energy. This is juxtaposed with delicate hand-applied embellishment such as beads, sequins, tulle and the use pleating to create fluid drapes, and soft pink or cream which represent the feminine energy. The result of the mix is a balance in masculine and feminine aesthetic. Details in the collection are hand-embellished or hand-finished by local artisan.

Nelly liu is a semi-couture label based in Jakarta selling ready-to-wear and limited edition item with hand-made details. Pre-order/ custom order available for elaborate pieces. The designer focus on the central theme of beauty which is translated into multiple sub-themes in the collection. For S/S 13 Lilith, the designer takes inspiration from the dark moon which is the second elusive moon which exist in between the earth and the sun. Taking both elements of the moon (yin/ feminine) and the sun (yang/ masculine). The designer mixes masculine elements of clothing into womenswear to achieve a balance look- one which is neither masculine nor too feminine. This idea is translated into the use of suits, dark colours & harsh lines which are contrasted with embellishment/ beads, fluid drape & muted pink and cream. Embellishment took references from images of the planets & galaxy (masculine attributes), which is then reworked with a combination of tulle and beads to look like flowers (feminine). The ambiguity of the final effect of the embellishment illustrate beauty in the balance between the two opposite energies.
