My second day of watching PFW SS2012 has been pretty much a breeze compared to watching the Michael Cinco show (which was stressful since I was late). Thanks to Joma, we were able to get front row seats and obviously, better photos of the clothes. The show of Arnold Galang, Gerry Katigbak and one of my personal faves, Jun-Jun Cambe, was one that I would never miss. Their shows were always exciting and interesting at the same time. I'm always curious as to what these designers would be showing next. Arnold Galang's collection took me by surprise since his last collection involved lots and lots of prints. However, for this season, he opted for solid, monochrome colors. Gerry Katigbak's collection reminded me of a toned-down Prada collection (the one with solid colors and stripes). But Jun Jun Cambe's collection was one of my faves! I would describe it as Shanghai on drugs; oriental prints in bright and flashing colours. And of course, the highlight was when Marina Benipayo went out bedecked in a sheer ensemble and a gold crown. Only she can do a finale like that! A fitting to end to a truly fabulous show.
For that day (more like the whole PFW), I opted for a more simple look, unlike the ones I used to sport back then. Gone are the leather, fur and leggings. Hello polos and chinos! Wore chinos from Topman, polo from Ralph Lauren, cardigan from Mom (haha), Marc Jacobs Canvas Tote and my fave Play Comme des Garcons. And of course! Instead of wearing the typical black bow tie, I got the limited ed. black bone tie from OS Accessories. It's seriously cool and it just goes with anything.Seriously.
Joma's wearing a vintage red blazer (that looked straight out of Jun Jun Cambe's collection haha)with a denim top and kahki pants from Zara, belt from Dorothy Perkins and accessories from both Aldo and Forever 21.
The brother's wearing a polo from H&M and work clothes. HAHA But they are fabulous work clothes, I think.
I'll be posting more PFW shiz for the next couple of days. Then maybe after that, I can resume regular programming. :)
