It’s that time of the year again for the Fall/Winter 2014 Philippine Fashion Week! This Friday, Suiteblanco, Sfera, and Uno de 50 will be presenting their F/W collection this Friday on the 24th of October. My favorite season for weather AND fashion definitely falls under this spectrum. The color palettes, fabrics, silhouettes, textures and patterns are my definite cup of tea. I know, I know, we don’t even get fall nor winter over here — but that doesn’t mean we’re doomed to sport spring/summer trends all year ’round in this tropical country — The weather is more gloomy and the nights are definitely colder — and that’s fall/winter enough for fashion.
A quick backround and intro is in order for these three brands, yes?
Spanish fashion label Suiteblanco ups its fashion cred and takes shopping to the next level by bringing its A game to the runway. Cut for sartorial splendor, Suiteblanco speaks to young, modern women with an uninhibited urban spirit who aspire for the latest styles that are affordable, which gives them more freedom with their spending.
Reviving timeless classic silhouettes, from circle skirts to fit-and-flare dresses, Suiteblanco’s Fall Winter theme is all about the merge of modern feminine and sleek minimalism. Black, white and gray pieces set the stage for the monochrome mood of the season.
Suiteblanco’s selection of beautiful tops and outerwear creates a fascinating fashion story that centers on dramatic texture and attention to details.
What can we expect from Suiteblanco’s Fall/Winter collection?
Denim styled renditions, animal prints in lush materials, strong timeless appeal in my mythic proportions and a rigmarole of festive prints and aboriginal styles which lend a hippie flair to any luxe outfit.
The Popular Fashion Brand from Spain, owned by The El Corte Ingles Group, reveals classic, stylish, and elegant looks for the Runway. Manila expert shoppers will surely take note of the sophisticated, quality, and elegant clothing seen first-hand in Philippine Fashion Week.
Originating from Madrid, (S f e r a) is a fashion chain that exemplifies contemporary Spanish style, the network of branches spans to 216 stores all over the world—from its origins in Spain, the (S f e r a) brand influence has extended to an international network with stores in Portugal, Greece, Mexico, Peru and the Middle East.
What can we expect from Sfera’s Fall/Winter collection?
Color palettes such as khaki, green, red, blue, and gray, dense prints showcasing butterflies on trousers, shirts and dresses that pay tribute to spring, a throwback to the 60’s with leopard prints in camel tones, monochrome looks and knitted fabrics, bulky wools and tight skirts.
Uno de 50
The search for yourself, a journey without a map or a compass, involves connecting with your surroundings. You are not in the environment; you are part of it. What at one point was contact or sense has now become a connection. UNOde50 searches inside each person to show that what defines them is not just an accessory, but rather part of them.
UNO de 50 has 501 of its own shops in Spain and over 25 abroad in some of the world’s top fashion capitals—New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Paris, Milan, Rome, and Amsterdam.
The autumn-winter collection of UNOde50 is inspired by the sensations experienced by the human being on coming into contact with nature in its purest form.
The Connection collection falls into 4 lines. The first of these is based on the human connection on coming into contact with the winter forest. The jewels come in shapes to be found in the forest in the winter season: drops of frozen dew, stalactites or pebble stones, as well as other natural elements such as insects or berries and the seeds that precede the arrival of the first snowfalls.
