While the rest of the world is savoring the Resort 2015 collections coming out, the recently concluded Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2014 has solidified the end of the season we all know and love, summer. But, as always, the ending is bittersweet because as Spring/Summer closes its doors, the new season gives us something to look forward to. Scroll down to see the trends we spotted from #PhFW. 

ALL BOXED UP

Call it shapeless all youwant, but the current fashion conundrum made numerous splashing appearances at Fashion Week. From retail brands SM Woman and Lee, to Xernan OrticioYevgeniya Yushkova,Chris Diaz, and Arnold Galang's different interpretations of the trend, you'll surely go gaga over boxy.

THE STRONG CROP

The breed of the ab-baring variety is still very much intact and here to stay. Designers Tina Daniac, Eric Delos Santos, Roland Lirio, Dave Ocampo, and more show us how you can wear the alluring trend sans summer's florals and stripes.

NUDES and Es

A number of gorgeous evening frocks walked the Philippine Fashion Week runway and  more than a handful were in nude or gold hues that either had embellishments or embroideries. Designers Albert Andrada, Cherry Veric, Boyet Dysangco were a few who chose to go all-out glam.

WHEN THERE'S BLACK THERE'S WHITE

Diverging from Spring/Summer's burst of colors, SM Woman, Xernan Orticio, and Raoul Ramirez showcase an array of graphic dark and light mashup that are definitely printed art.

KNOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED 

Intricate twist and ties in tops, skirts, and frocks didn’t go unnoticed at the shows of Vania Romoff, EsAc, Dexter Alazas, and Jun Jun Cambe. The knots offered texture and variety to the otherwise basic silhouettes, stat!

SHOP SLOUCH

Easily stylish, we are obsessed with the slouchy offerings that graced the fashion week showcases of Arnold Galang, Alodia Cecilia, and Anthony Ramirez to name a few. These days, slouchy doesn't automatically translate into PJs or sleepwear (although they still offer the same comfort level). We're talking about loose, almost drape-y jackets, tops, and dresses that are everything but tacky.
