Brace Yourself

20/05/2013, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Saint Laurent Paris, Shopping

I’m deeply in love with this chic, gold-plated bracelet from Saint Laurent. I don’t know what it is but I’m currently obsessed with touches of gold lately. Just a teeny, weeny, slight Midas touch. I think it has something to do with a recent trip to Home Depot to find the right shade of gold to paint certain things in my apartment.

The Daphne

14/05/2013, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Handbags, Jason Wu, Shopping

Two seasons ago, my friend Jason Wu gifted me with my very own Daphne Bag in a rich, cherry red color. It’s become one of my favorite and most practical bags. I really love how you can turn this shoulder bag into a really elegant clutch by just tucking in the straps. It’s very roomy and the leather is oh so buttery soft and smooth. Despite its compact size, it fits all my essentials. How chic is this version, in pastel mint?

Pink Magnolia x Disney, Mexico City

14/05/2013, Disney, Fashion and Style, Mexico City

Pink Magnolia, a youthful brand targeted to teenage girls in Mexico founded by Paola and Pamela Wong, recently invited me to Mexico City as one of their guests. Their runway show, styled by New York stylist Keegan Singh, featured their collaboration with Disney. Many of the runway pieces featured prints incorporated with the iconic image of Minnie Mouse. Overall, it was a fun, flirty and cute collection.

The very entrepreneurial Wong sisters were incredibly kind and generous. They showed Queenie and I an amazing time in their city. Being with them made me miss my own sisters back in the Philippines.

Uniqlo Lifewear Fall Winter 2013

01/05/2013, Fall Winter 2013, Fashion and Style, Uniqlo

Uniqlo’s Design Director Naoki Takizawa hosted a lovely breakfast yesterday morning at Industria Studios to present the latest Lifewear 2013 fall/winter collection. My beloved Nicola Formichetti styled and grouped the collection in different projects featuring Uniqlo’s cool classics — Heattech, Ultra Light Down, Fleece, Silk, Cashmere, Cotton Flannel and Ultra Stretch Jeans. I’m a HUGE fan of Uniqlo — I stockpile their cashmeres so imagine the delight when I saw the colorblocked cashmere sweaters. I also love how they combined multiple plaid prints in a single flannel shirt. Don’t get me started with the fluffy, cotton candy-esque pastel fishnet wigaloo situation; that’s a DIY project waiting to happen.

Calvin Klein Watches & Jewelry Baselworld 2013

27/04/2013, Accessories, Basel, Calvin Klein, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Jewelry, Watches

Greetings from Basel! Calvin Klein flew me to Switzerland as one of their guests for this year’s BaselWorld exhibition. To those of you who are not familiar of BaselWorld, it’s the biggest watch and jewelry fair in the world. It’s my first time to attend the fair. Don’t be misled by the word ‘fair’ though. BaselWorld 2013 was set up to resemble a giant shopping mall with some of the biggest watch and jewelry brands setting up conceptualized “booths” that looked like their actual retail stores. It was a no-expense-barred event and it was fascinating to see what everyone came up with.

It was lovely reuniting with familiar and friendly faces in addition to the Calvin Klein team and Executives: my ultra chic friend Lily Kwong flew in from Gabon, Laura Burdese, Calvin Klein tumblr contributor Hanneli Mustaparta and Ulrich Grimm who is the Creative Director of both Men’s & Women’s Shoes and Accessories. Rita Ora performed at the celebratory party in the evening and my beloved DJ Mike Nouveau spinned at the festivities.

The new Calvin Klein watches and jewelry collection features clean lines and characteristic curved metal surfaces. Some of the highlights from the 2013 line include the ck dress watch, the unisex ck eager timepiece, the ck classic watch that has been newly redesigned for 2013 and ck undulate, a key jewelry offering for the season including two pendant necklaces, rings and delicate earrings that showcase sleek and rounded shapes. Overall, the new collection can be described as sleek, elegant and ultra functional. Totally in synch with the brand’s modern and minimalist DNA. Very Calvin Klein.

Saint Laurent Paris Fall 2013 Preview

18/04/2013, Fall Winter 2013, Fashion and Style, Saint Laurent Paris

As you guys already know, I skipped the Fall/Winter 2013 shows in Europe due to filming engagements in Los Angeles. Now that I’m back home in New York, I thought I’d take the time out to view everything that I’ve missed. I recently popped by the Saint Laurent Paris showroom uptown the other day for a quick re-see. As always, it’s so different to see the garments up close. I found Hedi Slimane’s collection ultra luxe, extremely well-made, not to mention highly wearable. And relevant! I love the youthful energy and vibe. Some of the pieces are even downright unisex! My personal favourite items include: the white rabbit fur jacket (women’s) and coat (men’s) dyed to resemble ermine fur, the luscious mohair cardigans, the unisex shoes (they released a number of ultra classic yet edgy black biker boots, one of which came even came embellished), the mammoth salmon fox fur chubby coat, and a wide variety of strong jackets and statement capes.
