Twelve different designers of a multitude of artistic and aesthetic persuasions opened the last day of Philippine Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012. These designers of Ready to Wear presented a slew of casual creations that are ready to fill out anybody's wardrobe. Naturally, some collections were more covetable than others. Making it to our cut were:
Emi Alexander Englis, who presented a series of some languid t-shirt dresses in teal and taupe, punctuated by kooky ensembles of thread-strewn blazers and diamante print; John Guarnes, whose first five pieces of metallic ensembles we'd more than love to incorporate into our wardrobes (never mind, though, the cartoonish second set of his collection—he should've just carried the metallic trope through); Louis Claparols, who took dainty dressing to deliciously sheer dimensions (those tulle bustiers, worn atop popsicle colors, are all sorts of naughty and nice); Nixon Marquez, whose clean color story and sharp, quirky tailoring is something our summer workaday wardrobe would greatly benefit from; and lastly, Ziggy Savella, whose leather-harnessed urbane separates are not-so-basic basics we'd love to gallivant in.
