FRANCIS LIBIRAN FOR HAVAIANAS

Image
From the signature chevron of Missoni and the minimalism of Bassike, to the luxurious sophistication of Valentino and the urban edge of Michael Bastian, Havaianas has worked with artists across the globe resulting in a seemingly endless spectrum of creativity. And for the first time ever, the brand has tapped a local fashion designer to collaborate with for its latest limited edition release. Francis Libiran.

"When Havaianas approached me and asked me to design something for them, I wanted to incorporate my signature details. My creative team and I brainstormed on icons that are uniquely Filipino. When they told me about the project, I was very excited. I personally have to have my Havaianas every summer. They're number one in the world, so to have your name on Havaianas is something," Libiran says.
"We are very excited to have worked with Francis, whose creative ideals embody the very ideals of the brand," says Terry S.A. Managing Director Anne Gonzales. &quo…

CONVERSE CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR RUBBER: YOUR KICKS ALL-YEAR ROUND

Image
Calling all Pinoy sneakerheads! Here's the perfect to get yourself this season!
I made it very specific because these latest sneakers from one of my favorite shoe brand, Converse, can survive rain and practically, the Philippines' infamous bipolar weather. Not only that, it can also withstand trends and seasons with its classic colors along with a couple of "wild" ones! I already bought my first All Star Rubber in Wild Honey a few weeks back. Next? White. Or Black. Or Red. Aw, crap. I'm getting all!
The Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber collection features a French terry lining, with a rubber upper in rich monochromatic colors. Designed with a gusseted tongue and brass eyelets, the water resistant Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber is built to help protect your feet during rainy day weather and music festival mud pits. Available in unisex and kids sizes, the new collection comes in five rich colors with a special monochromatic white version sold exclusively at Conv…

ADIDAS ORIGINALS = PHARRELL WILLIAMS 'POLKA DOT' PACK

Image
adidas hosted an intimate dinner at Hinoki & The Bird in Century City, Los Angeles to celebrate their recent collaboration with Pharrell Williams.
"Am so happy to be here tonight to celebrate my collaboration with adidas. Beyond allowing a musician to merely design a product, I view our work together as a true creative expression of art. It also provides me the opportunity to amplify and spread the message of equality, something that has always been important and very dear to me." "Equality is love visualized. It is a symbol of affection, the action of affection. Equality is everything from a greeting to a declaration of true love. In all its forms. It is ACCEPTANCE. It is LOVE. It is STRENGTH." -Pharrell Williams.
Watch the video featuring the latest edition of the collaboration.

H&M TO OPEN 4TH AND 5TH STORES IN THE PHILIPPINES

Image
I've gotten a lot of inquiries and compliments for this suit I'm wearing. Also, on couple of occasions where I wore just the blazer. Now you know it's H&M.

It's one of the pieces I hoarded bought when H&M had its VIP night at the Mega Fashion Hall. I never got to wear it right away because the length of the sleeves of the blazer were more than an inch long and the pants were two sizes small around the waist. I didn't bother fitting the pants because you know how crazy the line (all kinds) gets on store opening days. We're talking about H&M after all. Thank God for H&M's return & exchange policy, I was able to have the pants exchanged to the right size 4 (or 5?) days after I bought it.
By the way, I had my suit altered at this humble shop located at SM North EDSA, The Block. Well what do you know? H&M is opening its 4th store there this Friday, December 12, 2014! It's just a stone's throw away from my place. Now I don't ha…

WHAT WOULD SNEAKERS DO AT 2AM?

Image
At 2am, I'm probably snoring sleeping. I don't know about my Converse sneakers that are stored next room. I like to believe that they also go out to have a good time. Someplace cool (like Tomato Kick!).
Having some nachos
and tons of beer
while flipping through the pages of some equally cool magazine.
Of course, it'd be hanging out with its fellow sneakers and they would take an awesome shoefie like this.
All these while bobbing their heads (if they have any) and thumping to Peso Movement's songs from their latest album, "Gentle Sound of Chaos". Have you seen and heard the band's latest single "Loss of Gravity" which they created for Converse?

ME, ME, MI

Image
There has been a barrage of "me's" on my Instagram feed lately. But mind you, these are not selfies. Thank God, you.

For instance, here's me on lookbook.nu (which I also posted on Instagram -as if lookbook's not enough).
Me, up close.
Me, and my Mi.
Hey, are you still there?

#SBCDREAMJOURNAL2015

Image
I must admit that I'm not one of those people who uses a planner. The few times I got one, I stopped using it mid-year. I don't know. I'm not just the planning-type, maybe? Plus, it doesn't help if I can't write much in it. Sometimes planners are just that, planners.
In comes Seattle's Best Coffee's Dream Journal 2015. First of, it's a journal -not just a planner.
One big "like" factor about the SBC Dream Journal is that it doesn't give its owner the I-consumed-18-cups-of-coffee-and-got-this-as-a-prize-vibe everytime you take it out because of its subtle branding.

Here's a closer look at the SBC Dream Journal 2015 and the promo mechanics on how to avail it:

ADIDAS ORIGINALS = PHARRELL WILLIAMS 'TENNIS' PACK

Image
The collaboration between adidas and Pharrell Williams is built on a vibrant sense of  optimism, highlighting the importance of equality. The first collection of this collaboration was launched 31st of October.

Tennis Pack? Hmm...
The collection features a playful take on the Stan Smith sneaker's sport performance roots, introducing the iconic silhouette in some of the same, brightly-colored felts from which tennis balls are constructed. Satin track jackets are offered in these same, spirited hues of bright orange, fluorescent yellow/green and solid white, all of which reinforce the hopeful, optimism conveyed throughout the collection's campaign art.
Being the conservative-type shoe collector that I am, I got this pair. First look is up on Instagram! Follow me, @paultheprguy.
The adidas Originals 'Tennis Pack by Pharrell Williams' is now available at these participating retailers: adidas Greenbelt, Trinoma, Fort, Ayala Cebu, Rockwell, as well as Sneakpeek, Sole Academy…
