Philippine Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014
Giving new meaning to summery prints, designs reminiscent of blooming, tropical fields took center stage in Penshoppe’s casual wear line-up for both men and women. Floral and leafy patterns graciously softened otherwise boxy structures of loose-fitting pieces also included in the anthology. Add in a refreshing twist to color-blocking—putting together cool and delicate hues of pink, blue, and green—and the result was a welcome amalgamation of radical yet current looks for the season.
Clearly, its Spring/Summer 2014 presentation showed the label’s attempt to take on a bolder style standpoint. “With this collection, Penshoppe really went all-out to bare its take on the sunny season,” Bascon pointed out. “But the underlying goal still is to stay true to the global fashion movement; while, at the same time, give way to local and practical relevance. For instance, comfort is still a key consideration in all our designs and an element that is never compromised, given our tropical climate.”
He concluded, “Penshoppe’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection is definitely very relevant, very ‘now’. By presenting the season’s latest prints, hues, and silhouettes in a new light, we offer refreshing ways for the wearer to amp up his or her wardrobe. Ultimately, though, the goal is for them to be able to ‘wear’ their unique style sense and let the clothes enhance or convey it in a season-appropriate manner.”
Indeed, with its latest repertoire, Penshoppe has undoubtedly taken Spring/Summer 2014 out for a bold and exciting spin—and every style-setter is invited to join the ride.
