This collection may be untitled but I reckon that this is something special for designer,  Mike Lavarez. He has been known as one of the designers of local Indie label ,  I Love You but it was only now that he joined Philippine Fashion Week. It seems that this is new for him but he knows how to play with his guns. He was kind enough to invite me yesterday to see the clothes and watch the shoot for his collection.  Seeing the pieces reaffirmed his aesthetic which was adamant and evident during his I LOVE YOU years. Surprising. Months prior, there has been rumors that his collection will be florals but good thing, he chose his path. And by his path , it involves somber colors of heather grey, taupe  and charcoal using light stretch fabrics. Expect to see lots of ripped oversized tank tops and leggings , drop crotch tights topped with tank tops with asymmetrical cuts and subtle drapings. There is this avant element injected but true wearability is seen.  I did see a lot of layering and peeling off happening in his looks which I think is extremely interesting. He also made a few necklaces to give a synergistic effect in putting strength in every look. I love this collection. It's minimal but it's complete. Lets all watch his show on May 14 , Saturday 1pm at the SMX Convention (RTW Collection).
