Gone are the days of classic rock 'n' roll being played from jukeboxes in diners, dandy boys riding Vespas, or using Combi vans on road trips. However, fashion can always hark back to the '50s by way of retro-inspired clothing courtesy of brands like Original Penguin by Munsingwear.
The brand recently re-launched its 55-year old American iconic vintage statement with a reinvention of its current Spring/Summer 2010 collection. Its signature basics boast of contemporary detailing with a touch of suburban sports—a look that has been distinctive of Penguin.
It has now grown into a complete lifestyle label with a range of classic sportswear, distinctive polo designs—with the famous Penguin insignia—and a selection of footwear and accessories. Women's wear also includes dresses and tops that can teamed up with casual jeans, trousers and blazers for the timeless appeal. And for the first time, it is also introducing its Kids Collection this Fall 2010—because no one's too young for a hip, vintage look.
Original Penguin is available at Power Plant Mall, Shangri-la Plaza, SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, Marquee Mall Pampanga, Bonifacio High Street and Anthem Greenbelt 5. Soon to open at TriNoma, New Prot City, Ayala Center Cebu and Davao.
