A picture of American singing star Joe Jonas wearing a black jacket decorated with a printed rooster bowl, noodles, stinky beans and Rp 50,000 and Rp 100,000 banknotes has gone viral, with speculation circulating on the maker.
“It’s a trending topic now in Indonesia’s social media. They say @joejonas is wearing a Kenzo. No, he is not. He’s wearing my sister’s ‘Hartono’ collection,” claimed the owner of Instagram account @andrew_hartono late on Tuesday.
The designer is Sherly Hartono, a graduate of Central Saint Martins art and design college in London, known at home for her satirical designs.
The owner of clothing line Hartono included the jacket in her Fall/Winter 2015 Lookbook under the theme Just Lick It, a parody of Nike’s tagline Just Do It.
The collection of sporty street wear was “inspired by the street culture of Jakarta”, as stated in the online lookbook.
Jonas was seen wearing the jacket at an event held by public relations master Karis Feinsten in Utah, the US, on the weekend, as well as at several radio events.
