The Cool Hunter: Hendi Widodo
Hendi Widodo keeps things fresh and professional whether on the grind in the shipping industry or on a quest to fill his vault of collectible kicks.
He sits front row at fashion shows, courtside at basketball games, in the VIP section at parties and rolls through town in a matte Tiffany-blue Lamborghini. If you’re wondering who Hendi Widodo is, it’s safe to say you’re not in his crowd. But it’s not your fault—this enigmatic 28-year-old has so much to brag about but keeps his work, lifestyle and sports team sponsorship on the down-low.
Based in Singapore, which he’s called home for the past 20 years, Hendi manages the finances for his family’s Indonesia-based shipping business while indulging his penchant for interior design. It is no surprise his sleek abode looks like a cross between a luxury suite and street style emporium, decked out in state-of-the-art technology and designer furniture, juxtaposed with fashion tomes, collectible toys and Supreme paraphernalia.
Undeniably, the piece de resistance is his wardrobe, which is filled with suits of the Thom Browne and Saint Laurent variety, slim-cut with 15cm hem trousers; elaborate timepieces and fashion jewellery; and the most covetable collection of shoes—from Hedi Slimane designs and Christian Louboutins to over 150 Nikes, of which about 50 are limited edition Air Jordans. His latest acquisition is a Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red October pair, which goes for the price of an exotic skin handbag in online auctions.
