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.

Common Thread: All Things Special

Bensimon

Bensimon

Life is in the details; The small things make it so much more interesting.

Written along the walls of their brightly lit and color splashed stores in Singapore, Malaysia and now in the Philippines. Common Thread shares an unspoken story of how everything you own is an extension of you you are. Each person’s unique sense of style, personal preferences – from the pieces he or she chooses to how he or she wears them – tells of a personal tale that binds him or her to a universal desire to express his or her story through fashion.

Bensimon

Common Thread cultivates these individual style stories by offering hand-picked collections of “style anchors”- essentials that you will always reach for because they complete your style story. Common Thread believes that style should be effortless, vibrant, creative and most of all personal.
Common Thread DSC_8438Fashion Ate The Lawyer

But Common Thread is more that just style, with the evolution of today’s fashion, style has moved from more than one’s look but also of how she lives out her lifestyle. Common Thread does not only represent function but also reflect a lifestyle hinged on a cool, confident attitude. Offering a bevy of classic pieces and varying accessories.

Thread 360

My favorite Thread 365

Common Thread advocates a fun and care-free lifestyle, featuring heritage brands such as Havaianas from Brazil, Bensimon from France, K-Way from Italy, along with premium jeans and eyewear brands, Levi’s and Rayban.

With this, the Common Thread brand stands for being authentic and effortless and recognizes that each individual has her own personal style, her own story, her own lifestyle. But underneath it all, we are bound by the common desire to express ourselves through fashion, where every piece has a story, a purpose and a place in our wardrobe.

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.

Brics Collage Brics 2 fashionAtetheLawyer

Brics Collage Brics 3 fashionAtetheLawyer

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.”

Brics Collage Brics 4 fashionAtetheLawyer

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.

The Stylist is now a Brand: Jenni Epperson for The Ramp Crossings

the ramp01-IMG_85022013

Long before being a stylist was the occupation du jour, Jenni Epperson was already running around, sourcing and styling for commercial shoots and fashion editorials. Like any true visionary impassioned with her craft, she has evolved and explored roles: lifestyle blogger, magazine editor, tv host, author and now – designer of her eponymous brand. Jenni teams up her flair for stylish living with Manila’s loved home and fashion hub, The Ramp Crossings and created the country’s first lifestyle pop up store: Jenni Epperson for The Ramp Crossings

Calling her initial collection “Rise and Shine,” Jenni Epperson for The Ramp Crossings is for the definitive multi-tasking modern woman whose tasks and roles vary throughout the day. And so the line’s key pieces will have one greeting the day in coral-inspired print chiffon tunic with gold coral embroidery to serving afternoon tea with the ladies from a gold lattice bar cart to seizing the night in knee-high sculptured heeless gladiators. Keeping everything transitional and multi-purpose was a key concern for Jenni. And so the collection’s highlights include reversible throw pillows, bar carts that can double as side tables or tea trolleys, pretty trays that serve as table decorative piece and uber chic clothes that can take you from the city to seashore and even the club!

THE RAMP X JENNI EPPERSON  143-IMG_85192013

the ramp01-the ramp 12013

The home and fashion line is also peppered with her signature print – Zebra- and played up with gold highlights. She enthuses, “The collection is not only fun and flattering. It’s very cohesive.” Jenni claims that her vision was to create a brand with pieces that not only complement each other but one that also keeps up with your lifestyle. “The jersey caftans are so versatile, just put on strappy flats and you can run around the day in them and just replace them with the gladiators and metallic clutch for a night out.” As for the home collection, Jenni’s main offering is the formerly elusive luxe bar cart and supplemented by Coral and Zebra themed home accessories such as reversible throw pillows, glazed hand-painted trays and coasters, gold hammered metal candelabra and napkin rings. Xandra Ramos-Padilla, General Manager of Crossings says, “The team was excited to start on this collaboration because Jenni’s not only an established figure in our industry but she’s also become a pioneer and tastemaker for those who want their style to be evident beyond their closets and into their homes.”
