When Kashieca launched its prestige line, Kashieca Luxe, it had undertaken the goal of advancing the brand to the echelons of first-class dressing. Favorably, it didn’t fail, especially with the names Lucy Torres-Gomez and Kris Aquino fronting the bridge label. Now with a brand new collaboration with one of the country’s most sought-after designers, Randy Ortiz, the label heightens its ready-to-wear line with styles that speak to you.
Randy Ortiz for Kashieca Luxe has created an atmosphere that pretty much sums up casual street couture—pieces that work a nine-to-five as well as they would a 6pm onwards in easy but elegant jersey that's styled into well-favored goddess silhouettes.
“I made sure that the garments are easy to wear, comfortable but in unique manner. Wearability was a major consideration, and I made sure that women of all shapes and sizes can wear and appreciate them without sacrificing the aesthetics of the collection,” Randy explains.
With this first brand and designer collaboration themed “Master and Muse”, the stellar collection mirrors Randy’s fashion sensibilities; however veering away from the Spanish references, romantic chiffon frocks, and lovely rosette appliqués we often see in his designs. For the first time, Randy uses jersey as the main fabrication, paying homage to the legendary French designer, Madame Grès.
The challenge was reinterpreting the couture of Madame Grès into ready-to-wear with jersey as the staple fabric; and unquestionably, Randy’s big career leap worked so well. The line offers a wide selection of jewel-tone tops and dresses that take a festive direction. Staple neutrals (black, white, and gray) are there for good measure and a dose of lipstick red is thrown in, perfect for the upcoming holidays.
The result: effortlessly classy, understated glamour and impeccable style. And who better to channel such sophistication and affluent aspirations than Kashieca Luxe and Randy Ortiz' muse, Lucy Torres-Gomez. With designs that are classic, fresh, vibrant and dramatic, Lucy best exemplifies the empowered women that the brand caters to.
