Time and Calvin Klein

I wouldn't really mind having 1 or 2 of these when I grow up and by grow up I mean having and achieving grown up things like grown up savings and grown up plans. ! I'd wear this during an important function and pretend that I mean serious business. The CK spirit is breathing in each piece. Clinical and collected. It can serve as an inspiration for me in designing cute flats as well. These are all available here

My Milkshake


I am so happy! I NOW have a cream moto jacket! This is from Stradivarius and it's made from Genuine leather! It's just a bit tight on me now that I have mildly sore muscles especially on the upper extremities. I can be bestfriends with people who watch ADVENTURE TIME! Finn is just so adorable and cute and hot , Aaron Carter kind of hot circa 1999. But I must say that Jake's voice is hotter. There is really something wrong with me! Porning cartoon characters isn't cute.

A NEW CROSS F/W 2012 / Leather Smoke



I had a chance to talk to the designer of A NEW CROSS last weekend. He always starts the conversation by giving me links of the lookbook and short film. We also shared the same frustration and joy regarding the fashion scene of each other and how hard it is to establish a career in this field. Nevertheless, that frustration stemmed into something visionary and esoteric. There is a strong character palpable in their pieces as portrayed by their long undulating coats and use of different fabrics (leather, wool, frayed cotton). I've also notice the direction towards a more structured silhouette but with a maintained fluidity. I can relate to the language that each piece resonates and I congratulate the man behind this for generally showing a compact collection sans the reverberating trends that are circulating everywhere.

A NEW CROSS
is a Colombian brand created in 2009. Their view is to produce garments and accessories with a high conceptual content, using top quality materials, and thoughtful craftsmanship processes.

SUPER CYAN


the Cyan boots pop against the black clothes like it's the planet Saturn in the middle of the vast pitch black universe. I kinda feel bad for wearing these new (and expensive ) shoes which was given to me by Solestruck however I was so excited to wear it despite the broken pavements! Next time, I'll try wearing the purple leather boots. Photos by the talented Anton Aguila

marc my words

I don't wear watches anymore. It's not included in my basic need and I am so bad at keeping them. It's either I break them or lose them after a week. I remember wearing women's watches before because it's minimal and light. I abhor those men's watch that looks chunky and heavy like it's something owned by the Power Rangers. But these Marc Jacobs watches are so smart and adorable. I love the cartoon-y feel of the brand and they're always so creative and young. I want one! I swear I'll get one before the year ends.... Get them here here here . Check them other designer watches in this link

Metro Magazine September Issue


The lovely people of Metro Magazine invited us once again, this time it's for a young designers feature along with Happy Andrada, Roland Alzate , Jian Lasala , Camille Co, and many more. We were unaware that this shoot will be for the September Issue. The photographer was none other than BJ Pascual. I swear it was nerve racking to stand in front of him, being hellbent on satisfying him with a good shot . He has done countless editorials, ad campaigns, billboards etc. Good thing BJ is a common friend and it made the whole process easier when in truth my insides are having baby seizures

This shoot is just so special . I've had a lot of photos taken since God knows when but this is serious business because BJ Pascual is like the photo alchemist, the benchmark! We were asked to create a look in RED. Supermodel Michelle Panemanglor surprised us too! When I learned that she's going to be our model, it was just euphoric. I'm a big fan since 2009 and working with her was easy breezy. We have the same shoe size too! I love how she owned the Paradigm Shift persona. Androgynous, Irreverent and carefree.

I had no luck of finding a copy today. Let's see tomorrow! =p
