Philippine Fashion Week 2014 day 3: Kashieca and Human


The last time I saw Kashieca on Philippine Fashion Week was a few years back when a lot of girly and daywear looks made up mostly of pastels, pleats, tiny ruffles on the sleeves and collars dominated their collection. So I was surprised in the most pleasant of ways, to see the transformation in this year's edition of PFW! 

The start of the show was a study on layering composed of printed sweaters, long-sleeved tops, and skirts perfect for the current season. What really caught my attention though was when they unveiled their "Little Black Dress" collection in collaboration with designers Sassa Jimenez (hers with the puffy skirt was my favorite), Maureen Disini (I loved the feminine silhouette of her dress worn with the gold chain belt!), Bea Samson (Hers was edgy and sleek and modern, a definite eye-catcher!), Vania Romoff (I'd definitely wear hers - so stylish and chic!), and Milka Quin (Clean, elegant, stylish is how I'd describe her dress!). 
What can I say? Kashieca made sure its "Little Black Dress" collection has something for every type of woman or LBD moment and even showed different ways to style each dress! 


Human is best known in the Philippines for their edgy street-style apparel, but something about the clothes that went down the runway during Philippine Fashion Week
 screamed N-E-W, M-O-D-E-R-N, and E-X-C-I-T-I-N-G! 
The start of the show was composed of a lot of black-on-black outfits, leather jackets and bottoms, and shiny glittered tops with some floral, stripes, and plaid patterns thrown in here and there. 
But everyone felt the uptempo towards the latter part when pieces from the Jman x Human collection were sent out. The collection are the handiwork of Tokyo-based Filipino designer, Johann Manas who brought Japanese street chic to Manila, not only with the new line but also the Japanese supermodels who were planed in led by Ko Nakano - he with the long jet black hair - and the face of Jman x Human.

Philippine Fashion Week day 1: Suite Blanco, Sfera, and Uno de 50

Philippine Fashion Week has come and gone like a fabulous blur and I must say the organizers outdid themselves once again.  And if you were as lucky as I was to have been there on the first day, covering three of the chic-est global brands as they showed off their latest collections on Manila's premier fashion event, you'd be gushing like a little girl, too!

So, without further a-do, here are some of my favorites from the fabulous SuiteBlanco/Sfera/Uno de 50 show.

Suite Blanco started their show with colorful ensembles composed of florals and bohemian patterns and denim tops, perfect for the everyday it-girl. As the show made its way towards the end, a lot of chic monochromatic looks strutted down the runway. It was my favorite part of the show as it was composed of black leather bottoms, black and white patterned sweaters and jackets, shiny, glimmering tops, and fur vests. 

I was pretty much enamored by the fall color palette of Sfera's collection, composed mainly of browns, reds, camel tones, and blacks and whites. Printed sweaters, blouses, blazers, and trousers were the key pieces of the show perfect for the smart, casual woman on-the-go. 

Elegant would be the word I would use to sum up the Uno de 50 show. They caught the crowd's attention by starting off with colorful ensembles adorned with beautiful colored statement necklaces and matching bracelets. What truly caught my attention was when they escalated towards an all-white segment and ended with all-black looks allowing their jewelry to glisten and stand out as the spot light fell on them. A lot of showstopper pieces right there!
