Puzzling Evidence : Batik Boutique Gone Wild

by Susi, 8 August 2008

About a week ago, I posted my report on the re-opening party at Quarzia, a designer batik boutique around the corner from my office and almost-built gallery in Seminyak. I promised to post photos if Marco and Simonetta, the Quarzians themselves, would send me some pics to post. Well, I got the photos, and all I can say is, the Seminyak crowd was totally unleashed by the potent Negronis served that night. These images provide puzzling evidence, shedding light on the question that begs to be asked: Is there any batik boutique so chic as Quarzia?
