Who would be so indulgent as to say, “I'd like to wear Rajo Laurel everyday?” Well, as it turns out, this isn't such an incredulous idea.


Plains & Prints unleashes another coup by collaborating with Rajo Laurel for a special capsule collection. His line falls under the brand's R.A.F. (Rich and Famous) line—the same one that featured the collection designed by former endorser Celine Lopez as well as the special denim range by designer and owner, Roxanne Farillas.


“Collaborating with Rajo Laurel is definitely a dream come true for Plains & Prints,” says Roxanne. “With his edgy, avant-garde approach to fashion, the classic designs fashionistas have come to love about Plains & Prints just got more exciting and definitely more chic.”


Shopping at the boutique already became more of a treat when they renovated the interiors to suit their modern and elegant style. With these regular collaborations with leading Filipino designers and personalities, will we have to start queuing to get near the merchandise?

Even Rajo shares the same sentiment as Roxanne with regards to this collaboration. “As a child, I would always dream of making everyone look and feel beautiful,” he shares. “This collection is inspired by the women in my life and each piece is a reaction to the relationship I have with them.”


The designer must adore each of these women as he's named a number of covetable pieces after them. Style Bible loves the day-to-night versatility of both the Araceli and Rocio dresses. The Amanda tunic has definite street-cred, while feminine sorts will adore the Virginia, Regina, and Venisse blouses. A special print was also custom-made, using Rajo's sketches as the pattern.

What works best in the brand's favor is that despite the fashion-forward stance they've taken since the conception of the R.A.F. line, the clothes still maintain that classic sense of wearability that all women look for. It 's definitely easy to put on something from Plains & Prints and no chore at all to wear a design by Rajo.
