Jake Cuenca is the face of Mensweek for its The Fort leg. Previous celebrities who represented Mensweek were Enchong Dee and Joseph Marco.

Mixed and varying textures is the strength of Ang’s collection for men, which is very in sync with its female counterpart.

Matching prints on hoodies and socks *check!*

Gold and black plays a big role in the color scheme in this collection. Pretty reminds us of Alexander McQueen in late 2010 and 2011.

This leggings with cutout O____O is just so phenomenal. I need ’em but I still don’t know if I can pull it off. Heh.

As with Nixon’s Philippine Fashion Week collection, and as with his other collections, the strength of his clothes will be in the unique cuts and silhouettes it creates with the body.

…and 90’s grunge and rock and roll! \m/

Pajamic cotton pants – buy this early for the sweaty summer season. It’s a welcome alternative to denim, at least.

Noel Crisostomo being put in the third and last slot was refreshing. His style varied immensely from the first two designers, but that doesn’t mean he’s lesser talented. Clean cuts and boxy geometric silhouettes are his strength in this collection. Also, attention to detail – be sure to catch the snakeskin lining in some of his pieces.

I. CANNOT. FOCUS. WITH. ALL. THESE. MEN.

Abercrombie may be famous for showing off shirtless men in the streets, but this overthrows all their previous campaigns!

Ibigay mo, ang sarap nitong Call Me Maybe cover. Though, ang becky lang. Haha!

It’s official. Carly Rae Jepsen is our new gay icon!
