1. A second collection of scarves

Last year, Paulina launched a capsule collection of scarves that showcased handpainted images of mangoes and dalagang bukid. And this time around, she's pulling inspo from her childhood spent in the Philippines, as well as her globe-trotting experiences, zooming in on Mexico, where she tied the knot with hubby Clark Koga."Each scarf is an ode to finding a sense of home while away, a familiarity in what's meant to be foreign, a feeling of kinship and shared history with something newly encountered," Paulina says. "The limited collection of scarves is done on luxurious 100% silk twill. Each piece is Filipino-designed and made in Australia."
