Celebrating the 130th anniversary of its parent company in style, Victorinox Swiss Army launches a watch of sharp, versatile design that is so strong it defies your imagination. Victorinox Swiss Army has created I.N.O.X, a new watch that pays tribute to the history and industrial know-how of the brand by showcasing the values that have made it famous: authenticity, strength, quality, expertise, and Swiss design.

The name I.N.O.X. comes from the French word for stainless steel, the solid, durable, and corrosion-resistant material that Victorinox adopted more than 50 years before it became the norm in the Swiss watch industry. Marking a shared link between cutlery and watches, I.N.O.X. is as iconic as the Original Swiss Army Knife. A concentrate of Victorinox’s DNA, it represents nothing less than the very quintessence of the brand.

An exceptional celebration requires an exceptional watch. I.N.O.X. watch demonstrates a level of robustness never before achieved in watchmaking. Designed to withstand unusual stress, it has passed with flying colors a ruthless battery of 130 strength tests. Beyond the standard certification tests of the Swiss watch industry, a series of new tests was developed specifically for I.N.O.X. watch. They reflect Victorinox Swiss Army’s passion for pushing boundaries and imposing new rules on resistance. Its robustness is incomparable to any other — an I.N.O.X. timepiece can resist eight tons of compression under a hydraulic press, and can resist being driven over by a truck of 25 tons or a military tank weighing up to 64 tons. Moreover, it can also withstand temperature shocks from -57 degrees to +71 degrees Celsius, set to a standard set by the US Army for the manufacture of missiles. Nothing comparable exists in the world of watchmaking. The I.N.O.X watch can also take on glacial cold; the watch will function non-stop and without complaint, even when frozen in an ice cube for 168 hours. Neither does it have a fear of heights; the I.N.O.X. watch can weather extreme conditions at a stratospheric altitude of 21,300 meters, which is twice the height at which airlines fly. It can also withstand a fall of 10 meters onto a smooth concrete surface, the approximate equivalent of a drop from a three-floor building.

Given its extreme robustness, one would expect the I.N.O.X. watch to look like a bunker. Its elegance, however, is evident at first glance. The refined design of the 43 mm stainless steel case is enhanced by a skillfully polished hexagonal bezel. The case is made with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with triple anti-reflection treatment, and is water resistant to 200 meters. Available in three colors such as black, khaki, and navy blue, the I.N.O.X. watch can be further personalized with a bumper. An inventive new accessory in the watchmaking world, this removable protector in silicone and nylon lets you change the watch’s look to match your mood. Whether it’s the office, a mountain, a busy morning, or a leisurely evening, nothing beats the I.N.O.X. watch for versatility: it can be worn anywhere, anytime.

This is the same thought that celebrities Marc Nelson, Andrew Wolff, and John Spainhour have with regard to the I.N.O.X. watch. Leading such busy and adrenaline-fueled lives, these three “friends of the brand” exemplify the qualities of the I.N.O.X. watch. Marc, an adventurer who dares to brave the outdoors, Andrew, who shows tenacity on the rugby field, and John, who courageously was a marine for several years, all find a companion in the watch. These three men capture the spirit of what it means to be strong, fearless, and passionate. With I.N.O.X. watch, they are free to scale the heights, to be fierce on the field, and to be brave in the face of duty. Although the watch’s primary functions are telling the time and date, its robustness, craftsmanship and style, make it the rightful heir of the famous Swiss Army Knife, and thus these three men’s perfect companion for life.

Marc Coblen Launches The Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign with the Pink Ribbon Watch

Filipinos are very active when it comes to supporting a good cause and with October fast approaching, everyone is preparing for the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During October, there are usually fun-runs, concerts, charity auctions, and medical missions to help facilitate check-ups and treatments for women who have breast cancer.

Though there are several means for people to help, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done in the Philippines. According to the Philippine Cancer Society, a staggering percentage of Filipinas have a difficult time paying for their treatment, while others are too nervous to continue with theirs. In fact, some Filipinas prefer to ignore the importance of an annual breast check-up and refuse to seek treatment once diagnosed with breast cancer. The Philippine Cancer Society espouses that there is a lack of awareness, access to treatment, but more importantly, the basic knowledge that breast cancer is curable.

Marc Coblan DSC_0548

This is where Marc Coblen, a Dutch brand created by Jordy Cobelens, the same founder of the well-known timepiece TW Steel, comes in to create a change – and a fashionable one at that. Echoing the mantra, “it’s time to change,” Marc Coblen urges women to take a proactive stance against breast cancer and change their mindset about what it is and how to overcome it. In line with the Breast Cancer Awareness program, Marc Coblen has collaborated with the Philippine Cancer Society’s Best Dressed Women of the Philippines and Lucerne, to create a special edition watch called the Pink Ribbon Watch.” A generous portion of the proceeds of all Pink Ribbon Watch sales will be donated to the efforts and activities of the Philippine Cancer Society in providing consultation and treatment to women with breast cancer all over the country.

Marc Coblan DSC_0552

The Pink Ribbon Watch showcases a 48mm pink Mother of Pearl face with a small Swarovski encrusted pink ribbon. The watch is encased in a Rose Gold finish steel case with pink baguette Swarovski crystals on its interchangeable bezel and uses a pink silicon interchangeable strap with a rose gold clasp.

The special edition Marc Coblen Pink Ribbon Watch is exclusive to MASTERCARD and will retail at Php 15,000. In light of the partnership, all purchases will entitle the card holder with a white leather strap and a rose gold finish bezel inside a beautiful white leather watch box.

Marc Coblan DSC_0537

Breast cancer survivors like Patty Betita, Ann Puno, and Liezl Martinez, have stepped up and embraced Marc Coblen’s campaign. They epitomize the several women out there who were diagnosed with breast cancer, but emerged victorious. With all of these strong and beautiful women, they share that the best way to combat cancer is to have the right attitude.

Marc Coblan DSC_0527

“Breast cancer at its earliest stage is curable,” Patty said, “That’s why it’s important for women to have themselves checked and have their annual mammograms and sonograms because if you detect it early, there’s a 98% chance of survival.” She shared that when she first found out that she had breast cancer, she was in shock. It was one of those things, she said, that you didn’t think could happen to you. “Once you are diagnosed with breast cancer, you are faced with your own mortality,” Patty said. But she found strength in her family, friends, and her unwavering faith in God. She emphasized that it has to be a conscious decision to fight the disease, and to make an educated lifestyle change. “For every cancer survivor, everyday you wake up is a new day,” she said, “Be hopeful, have faith, and you’ll be okay.”

Marc Coblan DSC_0524

For Liezl, she stressed the importance of finding ways to cope. “There are a lot of support groups out there, if you’re interested in joining,” Liezl said. For her, though, she wasn’t comfortable with being open about it in the beginning. It varies with each person, but she encouraged women to listen to their inner voice and find strength in their lives, whether it be in their family, or their friends. Although she had a chance to go to another country to seek treatments, she sought to undergo treatments in the Philippines instead. “Part of my recovery is to have my family and friends near me,” she said, “I think that’s really important.”

Marc Coblan DSC_0575

Ann Puno shared these sentiments, and also said that more often than not, overcoming cancer is also in the mind. “The most important thing is to be positive,” she said, “Cancer cells feed on negative feelings.” Ann kept herself strong through the power of prayers, and by surrounding herself with the people she loved most. At times, what also kept her going was the knowledge that other people were praying for her to recover, too.

Marc Coblan DSC_0574

Patty, Liezl, and Ann, all emphasize the importance of early detection. They also said that above anything else, women should start effecting changes in their lives. Even if a woman is at the pink of health today, these three women advise that it’s always best to still keep annual check-ups on their list of priorities.

Marc Coblan DSC_0568

Marc Coblan DSC_0562 Marc Coblan DSC_0555

“I think that it’s truly time to change,” Ann said, “It’s time to change the way we look at cancer, and we have to stop being fearful in getting check-ups because they mean so much to a cancer patient.” These women have beat down cancer, and urge other women to help each other and build a supportive community. For them, it’s all about recognizing the time to change – and that the best time to do so, is now.

XOXO,

Volcanoes Become Flawless’ Newest Men

Andrew Wolff, Gareth Holgate, Harry Morris and Chris Everingham of the National Rugby Team join forces, not to tackle enemies in the field, but the ones that haunt every man (and woman) almost every single day—skin problems.

Andrew Wolff, Gareth Holgate, Harry Morris and Chris Everingham of the National Rugby Team join forces, not to tackle enemies in the field, but the ones that haunt every man (and woman) almost every single day—skin problems.

Men take center stage this June as Flawless introduces the newest faces to join their esteemed roster of celebrity endorsers—Andrew Wolff, Gareth Holgate, Harry Morris and Chris Everingham of the National Rugby Team.

Donning formal wear with pops of Flawless’ signature pink tones, the four athletes appear together for the famed skincare clinic’s newest campaign, Real Men Do Care. Aimed at helping break the long-standing idea that guys don’t need and seek the same kind of care that women do, the new men of Flawless say they are very proud to have been chosen to champion the promotion of self care among members of their gender.

 A flawless guy should not just take care of his inside with a healthy diet but take care of his aesthetic look.  And a flawless guy shouldn’t be ashamed to be a little bit vain, it’s taking care of himself, be proud of it. – Andrew Wolff

A flawless guy means a guy who embodied physical, spiritual, emotional- the whole package basically. Somebody who feels good inside and out. – Harry Morris

“Everyone needs to look presentable,” shares Wolff. “Regardless of what you do, whether you’re an athlete, a doctor or a businessman, we all want to look our best in any situation; we all need that, especially if we want to excel in something. Knowing that you look good, gives you confidence, and that’s what we’re trying to say here. It’s OK for us men to want to get that confidence by feeling good about ourselves.”

Real Men Who Care

When asked as to why the four were picked to endorse Flawless, Rubby Sy, the brand’s CEO says,

“Aside from their natural good looks and macho appeal, what most people don’t know is that these guys, individually, all head efforts to improve the lives of their fellowmen.”

“Harry, for one, is a marine biologist. He not only studies but helps protect marine life in the country. Chris, on the other hand, promotes healthy living through proper eating and exercise while Gaz and Andrew are both very active on helping underprivileged kids learn rugby and doing other charity work.”

Real Men. Real Problems.

Much like women, men face various skin concerns. Large pores, oiliness, uneven skin tone, acne, dark marks and scars—these are just some of the problems that guys deal with; which are more pronounced among Filipinos due mainly to the Philippines’ warm climate.

Flawless understands this all too well, that’s why the beauty chain, dubbed as the country’s preferred clinic for face, body and medical aesthetic services, continually creates products and services that are meant to help everyone achieve the most beautiful expression themselves. From facials treatments done in a guaranteed hygienic setting by well-trained medical staff, to specially-formulated homecare products like soaps, toners, moisturizers and sunscreens, Flawless offers safe, medically-sound and proven-effective solutions for both men and women of any age and skin type.

One Mega Group publisher Dan Mejia supplied the night’s welcoming remarks quickly followed by One Mega Group’s Digital Product Manager Erben Pilapil introducing the new look of iammeg.ph and how the site is now fully social and interactive.

Of course the event wouldn’t be complete without acknowledging the magazine, crafted by Deputy Editor Wyatt Ong who shared her experience creating the issue. MEG has led the lives of young Filipinas into a better and more fun lifestyle, and for the October issue it’s Shaina Magdayao and Maxene Magalona for a double cover treat. Maxene, who was there to be acknowledged, talked about her MEG magazine experience and how proud she was growing up with the glossy since her cover 11 years ago. Similarly, 10 years and 4 covers later, Shaina surely showed everyone how she started from being a MEG baby to growing up to be a MEG lady!

The event couldn’t have been more fun with the MEG team and I Am Meg ladies joining the energetic crowd dancing the night away, being the bold, young women that they all are.

What Do You Stand For?

INTRODUCING DR.MARTENS AW/13 CAMPAIGN
WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR?

Throughout Dr. Martens history, the brand has been adopted and subverted by countless rebellious characters,
subcultures and tribes. Dr. Martens wearers bring the shoes and boots to life, and should be recognized. These
are the people who stand out from the crowd in their own unique way and for many, their journey of selfexpression
has always been accompanied by a pair of Dr. Martens.

Dr. Martens A/W-13 campaign celebrates free-thinking individuals; from the first timers to those who have been with
us forever. The campaign represents people of different ages, backgrounds, occupations and personalities who all
have one thing in common – they wear Dr. Martens boots and shoes with pride and passion, an empowering mark of
something worth standing for.

THE #STANDFORSOMETHING MULTIMEDIA EXHIBIT SEPTEMBER 27 2013 FRIDAY

The exhibit represents the campaign in its most organic and truthful form. As artists showcase what they stand for
through their art, guests can do the same by writing what THEY stand for on the canvas floor, dip their docs in the dirt
area and stomp away in their Docs. The #STANDFORSOMETHING campaign is raw, truthful, unique and won’t stand for
bullshit. The Dr. Martens team presents the exhibit area as directly to the point as possible, no perfect cookie-cutter
exposition.

“The greatest person you could ever meet is yourself.”

As a Fashion Photographer and a blogger, I stand for loving yourself first.

It is not narcissism, it is appreciating, discovering and knowing your true self’s strengths and weaknesses to freely bring out the best in you.

What do you stand for?

XOXO,
Fashion Ate The Lawyer
