THREAD 365 #COLORPOP

Finally. More colors!

Thread 365, Terry S.A.'s homegrown brand of essential apparel, took inspiration from fresh and happy memories for its latest collection #COLORPOP. The collection includes pocket crews (for men), striped bateaus, V-necks and tanks (for women) in popping pastels and vibrant colors; all reminiscent of the best times you've ever had.
The new tones of Capri Blue, Coral Reef, Orange Zest, Island Green among others simply remind you of great moments, whether it be a classic road trip or a relaxed coffee rendezvous.
Made of Thread 365's signature cotton material, the collection ensures a soft and breathable feel perfect for any occasion at any time.

In line with the new #COLORPOP collection, Thread 365 has tapped renowned photographer Mark Nicdao in launching a photo project highlighting colorful and diverse personalities exuding class and zeal in their respective fields.

UNVEILING VELOCI: A MUST WATCH FOR THE BRAVE AND FEARLESS

Boracay is my idea of adventure. Why? 'coz I get to do things I don't (and can't) usually do on a daily basis. Like walking around topless, for example. For lack of a "macho" physique, that's daring enough for me.

Now, moving on…

Topless (lol) or not, one thing I can't leave home (or the hotel I'm staying at) without is a watch. I like keeping track of my time especially when I'm out and about on my daily "adventures".

In the midst of all these daring adventures, it's imperative that you do it in style. Veloci stands for the young and the fashionable *ahem*, the ones who face up to their biggest fears and do it with a daredevil attitude. They're the ones who don't forget to look good *double ahem*, no matter if they're hiking up the highest cliffs, or surfing the most treacherous waves —they know that making an effort to look good also means loving yourself.

Veloci comes in five collections, each with its own distinct characteristics, so you can take your own adventures in style.

The Aeronaute (a personal favorite of mine), Voyager, and Cruise are characterized by their sophisticated Japanese movements, each with sleek stainless steel cases. These Veloci watches also come with interchangeable Nato straps which can be switched in seconds and without tools.
The Voyager is for the seafarers, those who love skimming the waters and don't mind plunging into the deep. They are the ones who sail the world to sate their thirst for wanderlust, and who want to experience every different culture that they come across.
Veloci also has a digital collection comprised of Pulse.
Pulse is for the fashionable athlete, the teammate for champions on and off the court who live to compete and win at every game. It is 100 meter water resistant, and delivers function with an alarm and stop watch.
And the latest addition to the fashion collection, the Metro, which is for the nocturnal urbanite, the life of the party and the wingman for any long night out filled bass and neon lights. Expect a feature on that very soon.

By the way, did I mention that Veloci is pocket-friendly? Given all of its features, yes! Versatile, too! Get spotted wearing one just like these celebrities!

A GIFT OF STYLE FOR DAD

If you were to ask me who my style inspiration is, I'd honestly say, I really don't know. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that I'm stylish to begin with. I just wear what I like. And what I like is to look pleasant. Always.
HYPE on Lookbook
But based on these photos of my dad, I think I might have gotten the "inspiration" from him. Particularly on wearing good-fitting jeans. And Ray-Bans, of course.

If only he's still alive up to this day, I'd take him out shopping every weekend.

How about you? Bakit ang sarap maging Pilipino? Sound off your answers online using #SarapMagingPilipino.

STYLE ORIGIN 2014

I must admit that for the past couple of months, I've been lazy. Lazy to practically do anything productive (such as updating this blog), lazy to dress up which is very unnatural of me, just plain lazy. I don't wanna blame the intense heat we've been grilling ourselves on lately (though science proves so: heat = laziness) 'coz... nah, I'm blaming the heat. Period. See? The heat is even making me lazy to think!

And then it rained. It's officially the start of the wet season! I'm happy. Excited, actually. I can't wait to pile on the layers of clothes I've amassed since the start of this year. Now, all I need is inspiration.

Good thing there's Ayala Mall's Style Origin to re-energize my style and inspire me to do what I do (I'd like to believe so) best.

Ayala Malls in partnership with the Philippine Star and Starworld, and in collaboration with the country's top lifestyle magazines MEGA, Meg and Chalk empower men and women with inspiring trends in clothing and cosmetics via Style Origin 'An Eye For Style'.

With landmark trunk shows especially compiled by the country's leading style authorities (watch out for the "Editor's Picks").
 
Style origin opens up a remarkable setting where timeless, impeccable style is bound to be experienced.
