Since its establishment in 1984, Camaieu has grown to have at least 1,000 stores in more than 20 countries worldwide. The French fashion brand, exclusively retailed by Planet Sports, Inc. in the Philippines, recently added Manila to this list through an intimate press launch held at the EDSA Shangri-la Hotel, followed by a fashion show held at the East Wing of Shangri-la Plaza.
True to its name Camaieu, which means ‘multiple tones’, the quaint, French-themed launch was a showcase of lively and bright colors. Nicole Andersson hosted both events and introduced the highlight of the show: three collections styled in the unique expressions of Katarina Rodriguez, Bianca King, and Tweetie De Leon-Gonzalez, Camaieu’s brand ambassadors.
Katarina’s on-the-go personality showed through her collection, which featured versatile separates that can take one from the school, to the mall, to a night out in the city. Romantic yet easy-going was the theme of Bianca’s collection, her chosen outfits hinting at sexiness with some show of skin, balanced by classic silhouettes flattering many body types. Meanwhile, Tweetie’s collection was a display of sleekness and sophistication, with many of the pieces in black and white or in graphic patterns rendered in monochromatic tones.
Says Camaieu Head of Operations for Asia, Rudy Liger, “Camaieu is vivacious, supportive, feminine, fresh, and free-spirited. These are the brand philosophies that make Camaieu relatable to all women, wherever you are in the globe.”
Camaieu is available at Shangri-la Plaza East Wing, Megamall Fashion Hall, SM BF Paranaque, Ayala Fairview Terraces, and soon at SM North EDSA. For more information, visit http://facebook.com/camaieu.philippines or follow @camaieu_ph on Twitter and Instagram.

Celebrate the Streets of Brazil with Make Your Own Havaianas 2014
Ever wondered how festive and vibrant the streets of Brazil are with its lively parties, vibrant colors, infectious dances and adrenaline-pumping street football games? Truly a cultural melting pot of ethnicities, Brazil has cultivated this very colorful and lively street culture that has thrived and infected others who have been witnesses to this amazing atmosphere.
And while we may not all have the privilege to sneak a peek and experience the streets of Brazil, Havaianas returns to its roots by bringing Brazil to the Philippines through Make Your Own Havaianas 2014! With its Launch Party happening May 6, 2014 at the Glorietta Activity Center, Make Your Own Havaianas kicks off with a festive Brazilian street party in true Havaianas style, as they invited guests in their colorful carnaval-inspired outfits and engaged them in activities such as personalized wish ribbons or “bonfims“, rousing performances by the Brazilian performance community and of course, making their very own Havaianas styles were available for every attendee.
With the eclectic mix representing the Brasilipinas community, the groups of Brigada, Escola Samba de Manila, Escola Brasileira de Capoeira, Imperatriz Filipinense Samba School, and Futkaleros gave us a true reflection of the streets of Brazil through their stimulating and moving performances through elaborate costumes, stirring music and passionate moves.
But the real thrill in Make Your Own Havaianas came in the ability to mix and match everything: from the soles and the straps, to color combinations inspired by street art, and to the fun limited edition pins – all exhibiting the spirit of Brazil. As a highlight for the ninth year of this event, a 200-year old tradition from Brazil was the inspiration behind this year’s commemorative pair featuring colorful Bonfims — Brazilian wish ribbons that are worn for good luck. The print wishes every wearer Alegria, Diversao, Empolgacao, Euforia, and Felicidade or Joy, Amusement, Excitement, Euphoria and Bliss – true to the Havaianas always summer spirit.
Brand Development Group Director Ammiel De Leon said,
“The streets of Brazil are a free-flowing and spontaneous back and forth of festive cheer, very evident with its people”
As the ultimate activity for celebration of self-expression, Havaianas encourages everyone to be as daring as the Brazilians when customizing their flip-flops.
“Brazilian culture is all about self expression, and not being ashamed of how vividly you express it.” Anne Gonzalez, Terry SA Managing Director adds as well.
This year’s event is made even bigger and more accessible. At the heart of Makati, Make Your Own Havaianas 2014 takes place in its new home at the Glorietta Activity Center from May 8 (Thursday) to 11 (Sunday), 2014 open from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM on weekdays, and 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM on weekends. There is no entrance fee so everyone is welcome to customize their own Havaianas and celebrate the streets of Brazil.

LIVING LIFE is one amazing and interesting thing to do. Some says its a make or brake but for me, its relative. Many people always complain what they don’t have [and even what they already have] for other people. Is it because of their lifestyle or looks or how they walk and talk?
Relativity is a perfect mindset, other people when they wake up every morning they smile to the world even with so much problems. Because its always a proper mindset that everything will be good just live your life and do more.
There is something incredibly alluring about the carpe diem lifestyle. We see it all around us: a 70-year-old marathon runner, backpackers traveling for months on end, couples skydiving on dates. These individuals never settle for boredom or complacency, rather than wait for things to happen, they make things happen. They do the things they love, the things that matter to them; taking in the best that the world has to offer.
This is precisely what the Rexona philosophy is all about – simply, to Do:More. It’s a challenge posed to everyone: be open to possibilities, keep busy, seek adventure, go the extra mile and push limits. Because to do more is to squeeze the best out of life, savoring its sweetness to the last drop.
This month Rexona recognizes two individuals – or Doers – who embody this lifestyle and serve as perfect examples of what it means to do more: Bianca Gonzalez and Phil Younghusband.
Bianca Gonzalez is the ultimate doer – a TV and media personality who uses her celebrity position to empower the youth and promote education. A social advocate and proactive citizen, she was named one of 2012’s Young Global Shapers by the World Economic Forum.
Today, she continues to inspire the youth to become active citizens, using social media and internet tools at their disposal. On top of all this, she is to headline the Unilever Personal Care Teen Week, appealing to the youth about the importance of inner confidence and the ability to DO MORE.
Phil Younghusband is—ask virtually anyone in the country and he/she will know who he is. His face graces billboards every few hundred meters along the highway. Of course, this is for good reason. Having previously played with the prestigious Chelsea FC, the British-Filipino plays for the Philippine Azkals and the Loyola Meralco Sparks Football Club.
Though already one of the top players in the country, he took things a step further by co-founding and coaching for the Younghusband Football Academy. With a level 2 UEFA coaching badge under his belt, Phil hopes to promote and develop young Filipinos’ skill and passion for the sport, ultimately spreading a deeper appreciation for football in the country. He embodies the Rexona philosophy through his efforts of training and supporting aspiring athletes – something the brand also advocates through its own initiatives.
Much like Phil, Rexona lives out its own philosophy by its vow to support the development of world-class Filipino athletes.
“For years, Rexona has supported the development of sports in the youth. One example was the Youth Excellence through Sports or Y.E.S. program launched two months ago,” says Mar Corazo, Rexona Brand Manager.
More importantly, however, Rexona invites all individuals to kick-start an active lifestyle by joining the annual Rexona Run On October 20.
Corazo says, “It doesn’t matter whether you’re a regular runner or a first-timer, it is a perfect opportunity to get out there and challenge yourself by doing something new. With Rexona, you can always feel confident knowing you’re protected throughout the day, no matter what it is you’re doing.”
With maximum confidence to do more, nothing should hold you back from pursuing your ambitions and aspirations. Climb that mountain, complete that 5-mile run, do something you never thought you’d be able to do – surprise yourself. Because to lead a more physically active, socially connected, and emotionally engaged life is to seize the day.
DO: More Smiles for your morning. 😉

MANILA WELCOMES BENSIMON
Last night was a celebration of good food and ambiance at the Enderun, Fort for the launch of the coolest sneaker shoes Bensimon. It was a festivity with their Parisian market-like exhibits of the shoes and their artworks.
Thirty years ago, there were two brothers who shared the same passion for advocating the Parisian love of life. Serge and Yves Bensimon created a symbolic icon of a classic sneaker design which embodies what the true Parisian love of life is- simple, effortless, and natural. This Philosophy is what the brothers wanted to communicate through their footwear, which is shown in their perfectly imperfect look and feel.
Bensimon has built its roots in the European market, and is inspired by travel, military and true Parisian fashion. The sneakers of Bensimon cover an array of styles, colors, prints for men, women and children.
“A certain idea of lifestyle where color, elegance, and the job of living are intertwined…always,” which is the central vision of Serge Bensimon himself, clearly translates into Bensimon’s most sought after classic shoe collection: La Tennis Bensimon. These sneakers which embody the brand’s target to create “perfect imperfections” falls in line with combining comfort and simplicity with the luxury and Parisian elegance.
