A softer take on color for 2016: For the first time, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity are chosen as the PANTONE Color of the Year. Rose Quartz  matching with Dolce & Gabbana Bag collection.

As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

The prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity also challenges traditional perceptions of color association.

In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.

Francesca Versace for BRICS Collection Launch 2013

BRICKSIMG_2704 FashionAteTheLawyer

BRIC’S, the internationally acclaimed 60 year-old Italian luggage brand, recently made the announcement that the BRIC’S – Francesca Versace collection called Travel Sense will debut in Asia here in the Philippines, specifically the BRIC’S Shangri-La Mall’s new East Wing store and in the SM Aura BRIC’S boutique before its launch in other Asian countries.

TRAVEL SENSE traces its origins from cooperation between Bric’s, a top-level testimonial of Italian style in the luggage and accessories market; and Francesca Versace, born in a family of fashion designers and a designer herself. The collaboration stems from an interaction between two different interpretations of travelling: Francesca, for who travel is a reason for life; and Bric’s, whose core-business has been founded on the words industria, valigeria, fine: industry, travel, luggage, and quality.

The collaboration between Francesca and Bric’s combines an interplay of different elements and strikes a perfect balance between technology, tradition, craftsmanship, functionality, quality, and fashion.

The collection of bags and accessories revolves around the theme of travelling which is re-interpreted through the recurring feature of a frame as an element that encloses an entire existence: dreams, desires, emotions and most especially moments that shape one’s life.

A frame – the overall theme selected by Francesca for the Bric’s FV_Bags collection – reflects her personality and her natural talent. It also symbolizes one’s life: dreams, wishes, emotions, and moments that are part of its history. Just like a photo, a place that is rooted deep in one’s heart can be ideally enclosed in a frame.

Attilio Briccola, BRIC’S commercial director said: “This partnership showcases the unmistakable style of Francesca Versace and the performance of reliable and durable materials, craftsmanship and avant garde technology that characterizes the BRIC’S brand.”

As the brand moves forward, BRIC’S continues its on-going progress with research, tradition, innovation, and functionality as the key words; and constant renewal aimed at harmonious combination of taste, style, quality, modernity and usage comfort as exemplified by not only the Francesca Versace collection but also the other collections like the Life, Life Pelle and the Pininfarina among others.

I can never forget Francesca Versace said to me when I’m taking photos for my blog that she can recognize me because of my green hair.

And when her mother ask me why my hair is green, I said, “My hair is naturally green, I just died my roots black” and she was laughing at what I said and She agreed.

It was a night full of show and surprises as they unveiled the Francesca Versace Collection and opened the store in a visually pleasing graphics show.

Flying Dutchman Flagship Day!

All Aboard for Flying Dutchman
The difference between fashion trends and style is the length of time you can wear them. Fads fade, but as they say, style is eternal. To have the eyes to pick up and mix-match timeless pieces to send off that cosmopolitan and classic flair is probably the best advice in fashion. And Flying Dutchman is an advocate of this.
Since the ship has set sail for the Flying Dutchman in 2011, it has gone from men’s footwear to apparel and accessories with a wide range of sleek pieces that are perfect for all the men of the decades. With style and comfort in the standard equation, the collection is proudly Filipino made from the finest materials to stand the test of coming and going fashion fads over time.
Flying Dutchman’s 100% cow leather shoes are now paired with wallets of the same material, ageless-cut bottoms, dress shirts, polo shirts and jackets from imported fabrics and rucksacks of vegan leather and canvas. All the cuts and stitches carefully make dressing up suave for school, work or night outs – clean with a perfect amount of scruff, turning boys into men of style, control and class from head to toe.
And what’s better than a stylish man? One with a woman who is as beautiful and classic. Ladies, Flying Duchess is on aboard! Get the same ease and elegance men do with styles that you can walk in and be flattered for long.
With another batch of dashing boat shoes and fetching apparel and accessories to boot in their newest collection, Flying Dutchman starts off its second year in the scene with the grand opening of its flagship store in The Collective* on November 17, 2012 with an Anniversary Party at 6 in the evening. For details, go to their facebook page http://www.facebook.com/FlyingDutchmanShoes
