Shar­ing the Pi­noy spirit through fash­ion

The Philippine Star - - FASHION & BEAUTY -

Three of the most in­no­va­tive brands — En­sem­bles, Free­way and Solo — cel­e­brate Filipino tal­ent in the most cre­ative of ways. Each brand show­cases the spirit and tal­ent of the coun­try’s very own artists and de­sign­ers through its lim­it­ededi­tion col­lec­tions.

En­sem­bles col­lab­o­rates with An­thony Ramirez, one of the fresh­est, yet sea­soned fash­ion de­sign­ers in the coun­try through its Young De­sign­ers Se­ries. Get ready to wear pieces that are sub­tly edgy and sexy-per­fect for the strong, in­de­pen­dent and fash­ion-for­ward woman. Fit for an En­sem­bles woman’s life­style, the col­lec­tion con­sists of so­phis­ti­cated and fash­ion­able pieces any woman would love to wear such as smart tops, tai­lored dresses and sexy cock­tail dresses in neo­prene ma­te­rial.

Free­way is hon­ored to pay trib­ute to Na­tional Artist for Vis­ual Arts Bene­dicto Cabr­era, bet­ter known as “BenCab,” who is cel­e­brat­ing his 50th An­niver­sary Ret­ro­spec­tive, show­cas­ing his var­ied styles and works over the span of half a cen­tury. Per­fect for the dy­namic woman and art ad­vo­cate, the Free­way X BenCab Hol­i­day Col­lec­tion con­sists of vi­brant col­ored shift dresses, work dresses, a wide va­ri­ety of sub­li­ma­tion tops, maxi dresses, jump­suits, ki­monos and more. Mostly adorned by his pop­u­lar muse “Sa­bel,” th­ese beau­ti­ful pieces are per­fect for work and play ac­tiv­i­ties this hol­i­day sea­son. Rang­ing from ca­sual to semi-for­mal, the pieces con­sist of dif­fer­ent styles and trends that the mod­ern Filip­ina will surely love to wear. Plus lots of gift items to choose from!

Solo of­fers hip and cool gifts for the young through its Pi­noy Car­toon­ist Mem­o­ra­bilia col­lec­tion fea­tur­ing the long­est-run­ning Filipino comic strip, “Baltic and Com­pany” by Roni San­ti­ago. This fun and com­i­cal col­lec­tion is com­posed of col­lared tees decked out in all-over prints, hu­mor­ously drawn char­ac­ters and some amus­ing comic strip scenes. Solo also of­fers graphic tees, dresses, bot­toms and match­ing His and Hers couple shirts in eye-catching and fun prints that ev­ery­one, es­pe­cially the youth, will definitely enjoy for the hol­i­days.

Give mean­ing­ful gifts this year and wrap up some­thing as spe­cial as your loved one is. All items from all three se­ries have their own hang­tag story and spe­cial gift pack­ag­ing to high­light the tal­ent of each Pi­noy artist. All are pro­duced in lim­ited edi­tion.
