Meet Colombian Collective, The Filipino-Owned Shop Curating Colombian Fashion To The PH
We have the very reason why the likes of Catriona Gray, Marie Lozano, Steph Kienle-Gonzales, and Rissa Mananquil-Trillo choose Colombian Collective!
Since our eagerness for an escape via car, plane, or boat has been bugging us all summer long, we figured why not host our dream summer vacation at the comfort of our homes instead? Just in time to satisfy our wanderlust, Colombian Collective gives us the very reason why summer looks are possible all year long. Meticulously handpicked by Filipina Entrepreneurs Isabel Prollamante and Ida Cua-Bernardo, Colombian Collective boasts a stylish selection of clothing, jewelry, and bags from budding and well-known Colombian fashion brands.
One of the brands that caught our eye include Mio Coral, a swimwear brand inspired by the colorful and pulsating coral reefs of Colombia. Founded by Katherine Moran, Mio Coral wants to create a reef or a safe space for women that are artistic, powerful, and poetic. Each collection is designed by Colombian illustrators and artists that reflect on every stroke, thread, and cut to dress women like you and me.
Also on top of our shopping list is Fenomena, a jewelry brand that specializes on necklaces, rings, and earrings that are made out of the world-famous Colombian emerald. CEO and Designer Alejandra Llano commits to responsible mining above everything else! It’s comforting to know that apart from the design, you’re getting the best through fair trade as well. From necklaces, rings, earrings, to bracelets, trust that you will be finding your next hero piece in their catalogue.
Colombian Collective also houses pieces from Eugenia Fernandez, her namesake brand is inspired by the diversity and richness of the Colombian landscapes. Eugenia offers the best of Colombia through vigorous and earth-toned blouses, dresses, trousers, and skirts that are exclusively made out of recycled fabrics and prints that are only processed through eco-friendly printers.
Isabel and Ida both pride themselves for curating pieces and helping women build a unique, quality, and conscious wardrobe. They both see to it that the designs and brands that they’ve handpicked will resonate with the Asian market specifically to stylish women who are always on the lookout for statement pieces that not only carry their design aesthetic but it should also carry a meaningful story as well. After having launched in September 2020, Colombian Collective has tapped the hearts of many Filipinas including Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, lifestyle journalist Marie Lozano, and entrepreneurs Steph Kienle-Gonzales, Rissa Mananquil-Trillo, and Marga Nograles.
To answer your question, Colombian Collective does ship worldwide and is based in both Colombia and the Philippines! Isabel, who is a resident of Colombia works closely with her partner Ida who is based in the Philippines, to ensure that their customers can get the best of both worlds.
