Oxygen S/S12 x Marcela Gutierrez Preview

Almost a month ago, Oxygen invited me, along with other fashion bloggers to preview their would-be Summer-Spring 2012 collection at their Trinoma branch. I’m so honored to be in the same room with some of the top influencers of Philippine fashion, much more drinking Perrier, having cold cuts and custom-made cupcakes, and conversing with them. Indeed, it has been a pleasure to be there for Oxygen.

DSC_0974I could’ve devoured the cold cut platter. Nice choice, I say!

Introducing the latest collaboration of Oxygen with internationally renown fashion illustrator Marcela Gutierrez! For a while, I thought Marcela’s name was a bit familiar, until I realized I met her already here! And so I was very excited to see this collection, especially before anyone outside that room sees it! You have to give it, Oxygen really has classy style. Marcela is the way to go!!!

This green-white-gray illustration got my eye, and yay, I found it in my loot :D

DSC_1010Tie-dye-ish fashion is coming back in a twisted version. I love it! Definitely waiting for this to hit the racks.

I’ve been meaning to distress some of my pants. This gave an idea what to do with my old ones. But yes, this is on the wishlist, too. Very grungy and adherent to the Oxygen fashion that I know!

Carrot cut pants. If it weren’t for my hips that don’t lie – quoting Hanna Samson!

Drape-y top.

DSC_1014I wish this shorts comes with a boy version.

DSC_1015

Sheer top. I can almost feel how comfy this is under the cruel summer sun heat.

Not sure if this is the piece Kat Reyes told us about sublimation, but I really like the sexy illustration.

Thanks to Miko and Verge for the last two photos :)

Like Oxygen at Facebook, follow their awesome Tumblelog, and their Twitter for updates on their latest fashion pieces. Most of all, go out there and buy those pieces, they’re all worth it – which reminds me to work, work, work so hard so that I can buy, buy, buy all I want! LOL!

Last *AWESOME* week in Photos

It has been a very busy Fashion Week

Until now, I really cannot completely grasp what just happened last week! Whirlwind PFW and a lot of in-betweens! Awesomesauce!!!! IT REALLY IS!!!

More and more people are watching Philippine Fashion Week. Glad that people appreciate local design

Went to Guess‘ show for Philippine Fashion Week. Met my blogger friends again for the first time since the Oxygen preview. As usual, they’re looking so great!

I love the clouds that day, they really are pretty

Thanks to David Guison for this photo of me!

PdP invited a handful of bloggers to Subspace Coffee House to preview the latest awesomesauce camera strap collection we just recently launched. This is the first event I handled for PdP. It’s a bit rough on the edges, but it was successfully delivered! Thank you to my team and the bloggers who made this happen! Stay tune for the next collection we’re having!!!

Pandafy! Coming very soon!

DSC_0663I love the architecture at H20!

After the preview, I went to H20 hotel and met Hanna for a quick Manila walkathon. Walked through Luneta, Roxas blvd., and we found ourselves at David’s Tea House, at Malate, for noodles and dimsum. Btw, their wanton is the best!!! And their tea is delicious. Coming back with the family when Mommy comes home this November.

Went To Freego’s show in the MOA atrium. First time watch inside the mall, and it was wild! People are everywhere and I didn’t manage to find a seat for me, Nica, and Jen. But the collection is awesome, as well. Y’all love it! AND THESE BASKETBALL PLAYERS! They walked outside the curtains with just their undies on and dressed onstage. Oh gawd, my knees have gone weak :P

Back at the SMX, the next day, for Oxygen’s show. Been looking forward to this show since we previewed the Marcela Gutierrez collection. Very edgy and cool.

DSC_0701WE’RE VIP BABY!

The collection is so freaking amazing. I want to go into the minds of these designers! After the show, we went to the after party at Prive and met a lot of people. No pictures, because they won’t let my camera in, but I swear I was half-drunk and had the guts to talk to Cliff Ho who is sooooo handsome. That and alcohol made my knees really weak!!!

Saturday is the last day of PFW, for me, that is. Hustled through The Ramp’s show. Thanks to Erika who got me a ticket, even for the last minute. I just wished I wore a fairly ventilated outfit. I am such a sweat machine.

DSC_0924BRENT! OH MY GAWD, BREEEEEENT!

DSC_0925

Also watched Vans’ show that day. So glad I did, because I was seated at the front with Miko, Daphne, Gerd, and Verge. So stoked! And they built a mini skate park inside the mall. WOW! Now that’s what you call innovative!


Now this is the face…


…that launched a thousand fans into rage!

Penshoppe’s show was outrageous because of Mario Maurer! I wasn’t able to get in, and I wasn’t really planning anyway, but I was there to wait for Ana to pullout some pieces from her online shop. It was not a pretty scene outside and fans were booing because they can’t be accommodated inside. I think Penshoppe had a special thing for them today…

DSC_1014

I initially planned to watch some designers’ show (L’Oreal Menswear and RTW collections) but I had to do a shoot with my sister for her debut. This is my first photo shoot to organize, and so I was so nervous and freaked out. I had Erika, Ana, Bianca, Bea, and Tiff to thank for this shoot. I think they made it easy for me. Thanks, you gals!

Anyhoo, more of the Summer Spring Collections of these brands on separate posts!!! Egad, this week is so awesome (for the nth time!)

P.S. I am still in Jason Mraz hangover! Watching him play last night is so hypnotizing! And he is so kulet! I just wish he sang Make it Mine! So here it is and let’s all be LSS about it :D
