Contemporary Filipino Brand Carl Jan Cruz Roots Itself In Univers

The luxury retailer welcomes its first homegrown Filipino brand.

An intergalactic collision like this is one for the books. Both massive entities in their own orbits, Carl Jan Cruz and Univers each wear their cult status with pride.

Carl Jan Cruz, whose namesake brand has garnered the interest and support of Manila’s stylish and fluid creatives, has been making hand-stitched garbs with Filipino culture and heritage in mind. His colossal cuffed jeans and frolic-ready dasters serve as an open invitation to self-expression. Each Pambahay or Pang-Okasyon piece, as he calls them, represents an honest dialogue between the past, present, and future. The contemporary designer sure knows how to make a statement! 

Univers, a curated multi-brand store here in the Philippines, serves as the perfect platform for this otherworldly creative. Through an exclusive collaborative capsule, CJC x Univers invites like-minded individuals to experience the brand through a one of a kind retail experience. Starting this November, customers can now shop for CJC’s garbs made out of soft fabrics, single-seam construction, and sparse contrasts of color, from cerulean, creams, and black.
