In the era of gender inclusivity, fashion follows suit and takes progressive steps with the help of brands that transfer power to the wearer and achieve wider acceptance of everyone's preferences. While some may think that gender-neutral fashion is just a trend and part of the fashion cycle, it definitely won't be going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, many unisex pieces are classic and will never go out of style. To get your collection started, here are chic, genderless, and proudly Pinoy pieces that are perfect examples:
1. Sora Desert Sun Towel
Created in collaboration with Filipino designer and singer Chi Gibbs, this towel is inspired by the vibrant colors and shapes of Palm Springs and mid-century architecture. Whether used at the beach or on your yoga classes, this lightweight and compact sun towel is the perfect just-in-case piece. It's made from 85% recycled materials as well, and it's highly absorbent and dries quickly after a soak.
