Kenzo Fall/Winter ’21 Shows There is Joy in Color—and Dancing!
In true Kenzo fashion, their F/W show is all about the merriment of feeling great in your clothes. If the collection proved anything, it’s that color truly really helps lift any mood and fashion statement. The film by Kenzo Creative Director Felipe Oliveira Baptista highlighted model-dancers in a state of trance-like movements, dancing and sashaying a circular stage in batched, mostly segregated by the collection’s many color stories. Bursts of prints, highlighter hues, bold knits in bold collars—the fashion seemed endless yet you end up wanting more from it.
It’s poetry and fashion rolled into one fantastic film on letting the clothes take you to a state of mind, and from there, you make it your own.
Kenzo is available at Solaire Resort & Casino
JW Anderson for Uniqlo Offer Festive Florals For Those Looking to Bloom this Season
Spring isn’t just about the prints and the colors but rather a feeling. This soft, easy feeling is what we get by looking at the latest offering of the Uniqlo and JW Anderson seasonal collection. T-shirts, blouses, hats, tote bags, and other items feature wildflower embroidery accents—a new way of reintroducing this season’s beloved florals.
“I was really thinking of Spring when I was working on this collection. We were all staying inside and I was looking forward to when we could venture out again. I also wanted to incorporate a feeling of craft, as its very important to me,” says Jonathan Anderson.
The collection will be available on April 23 in Glorietta and on Uniqlo.com/ph
Meet an All-New Dickies Philippines
Dickies in the Philippines is getting a makeover—or more like going back to the grassroots of the brand: edgy utilitarian and durable workwear. For its 100th year, Dickies is circling back to its heritage as they reintroduce the brand here in the Philippines. The debut collection boasts of this workwear-to-runwway-worthy pieces, highlighting what the brand is really known for since 1921: wearability and durability forged into everyday-wear. Cargo pants, tailored jackets, accessorised with caps, bucket hats, and work bags, this formula has alway worked for the brand and much more now that they breathe in new life to the staples.
The collection is available on Lazada and soon on Zalora
