It was a luxurious affair as Charina Sarte celebrated the ninth anniversary of her Greenbelt 5 boutique with the launch of her newest collection, Holiday in the Tropics.
A favorite among celebrities and Manila’s style savants, the designer has been synonymous to chic sexiness and all-out glamour. A Charina Sarte woman, after all, knows what she wants and settles for nothing less. She is a lover of life, and it shows even in her fashion choices.
For her holiday collection, Charina took inspiration from her Filipino roots and her love for travel. “This collection is an ode to the tropics. The pieces are fancy enough for the holiday festivities, but are light and chic still, perfect for a truly tropical holiday,” says the recently-wed designer. “The pieces remind me of home, with a few European touches here and there. They are pieces I would wear to a holiday get-together in Manila and even in Paris,” she added. The collection combines bright and feminine pieces in light fabric. Items range from chic outerwear to stylish dresses and jumpsuits.
For its launch, loyal clients and friends were treated to a Moet & Chandon Luxe Brunch. Held in a private home in Makati, guests saw the venue transform into a relaxation haven with beautiful tropical greenery and an exquisite 6-course brunch complete with champagne pairing led by Matthieu Lerat, Moet & Chandon’s brand ambassador. Models showcased each of the pieces from the collection as guests enjoyed a sumptuous meal. To complete the experience, each one received a surprise loot bag with skincare treats from La Mer inside a feather pouch designed by Charina herself.
