Tempted? We've got news for you: Danse Lente is finally available in Manila, exclusively shoppable at Rustan's Makati! Scroll to see the brand's Spring-Summer 2019 collection, which presents a color story that’s mainly drawn from Norman Parkinson's photography. Key inspiration came from photographs taken between the '60s and '70s of women in exotic destinations at a time where travel had limitations.

If you want specific references, look to the warm, muted hues of Pilar Creeps on the Steps and Carmen Dell'Orefice's 1959 Vogue cover. Toffee and sawdust tones offset the matte black hardware that's been introduced for the very first time, creating a balanced contrast to the notion of soft and hard, masculine and feminine.
