Fun, fearless Pinays are lucky to be able to enjoy summer all year round here. So stop lamenting the end of the season and pick up more summer styling ideas!
The scorching summer days and balmy nights call for only minimal clothing, but you need not shed your style along with past seasons' layers. This season provides the perfect excuse to show just a little more sun-kissed skin through breezy resort wear and swimsuits.
Pinay designers Rosanna Ocampo, Charina Sarte, and Hindy Weber-Tantoco unveiled their sultry summer collection in a fashion show held along with the grand launch of Azure Urban Resort Residences. Lifestyle inspires fashion, and each of their collections swings with the luxurious, resort way of life made available by Azure. In like manner, you can get inspired by these collections when shopping for items that suit your personal style, needs, and budget.
Rosanna Ocampo pays homage to the legendary modernist architect Antonio Gaudi as seen by the play of angles, curves, and geometric shapes in her designs. Her beach and resort wear are great for summer nights out and daytime power dressing.
Charina Sarte emphasized the beauty of the beach with her summer wear that is equally colorful, feminine, and sexy. Her collection includes bold prints, embellished bikinis and maillots, and sheer cover-ups. When you're feeling more relaxed, you can turn to this collection for fashion inspiration.
Hindy Tantoco curiously takes her design cue from the powerful king of the ocean: the great white shark. Strong, edgy, and spirited her collection sticks to a black and white palette. Strategic cut-outs lend her solid-colored swimsuits just the right amount of boldness. If you're not a fan of color, you'll love getting ideas from her collection.
Century Properties' Global Brand Ambassador Ruffa Gutierrez and Joey Mead played hosts for the night's festivities.
