CASIO OPENS ITS DOORS TO COUNTRY'S FIRST G-FACTORY PREMIUM STORE

Image
It's time! (And let me add, finally!)

Casio opens doors to its first G-Factory Premium Store in the country!
Just the 2nd of its kind in the world, the G-Factory Premium store will carry G-SHOCK's premium watch line along with other CASIO watches.
But before I let you in on the premium watch line the store carries (it deserves a separate post), allow me to share to you some snaps from the launch which was held last September 29, 2015 at Greenbelt 5.

LOOKBOOK 290 + CAPITAL STORE LAUNCH

Still need costume ideas for this weekend's Halloween celebration? Here's an idea: pair a joggers and a pullover (layering is strongly encouraged), wear your freshest kicks, and anyeong-haseyo your way as a K-Pop artist.
A good pair of sneakers is very vital because Koreans love to walk. At least in my observation over the short period of time I stayed in their country. Having their kind of climate probably motivates them too and if there are two things I learned about Koreans when it comes to their preference with sneakers, it'd be style and function.

FASHION PUNCTUATION BY PEOPLE FOOTWEAR AND HERSCHEL SUPPLY

Image
It's not everyday that I'm "inspired" to dress up. There are days when you just have it, or you don't. On days that I don't, I sometimes start by matching my shoe with something other than what I'm actually gonna wear (like accessories) in order for me to build up a look.
Take this peg, for example.
Obviously, my People footwear and Herschel bag were a perfect match. The Vancouver-based brands teamed up for the 'Fashion Punctuation', which happened last October 3, 2015 at the Alabang Town Center to celebrate its Canadian roots and commitment to create quality products. The event also extended the statement of how undeniably versatile each brand's goods are through an afternoon full of fashion, expression and creativity.
The event featured 12 different fashion styles that one can surely identify with; these styles are topped off with the "punctuation" of the perfect pair of People footwear and Herschel bag, just like ending a well-wr…

MADE FOR THE MODERN TRAIL

Image
Autumn looks dreamy in photos, no? But don't be fooled by the illusion of warmth and comfort which the colors red, gold, and brown promise because in reality, the temperature falls in Fall.
But why bother with the cold when the cold doesn't bother you anyway (forgive me) when the end result of your game with Hypothermia are Instagram-worthy photos? Ganyan tayong bloggers eh.

CAMOUFLAGE FOR VELOCI'S HOLIDAY 2015 COLLECTION

Image
A wise friend (Hi Sarah Tirona!) once told me that the camouflage print is classic. It will never go out of style. This was her response when I asked her if it's just a trend some couple of years ago. Every cool people I know was wearing the print back then. And true enough, Italian-inspired watch brand Veloci embraces the immortal trend with the launch of its Holiday timepieces.

LOOKBOOK 288 + DUNE LONDON A/W 2015 MEN'S COLLECTION

Image
Who would've thought that I just needed a quick trip to South Korea to bring back the "drive" I somehow lost in blogging. If you've noticed, I've been diverting much of my social media presence on Instagram (follow me! @paultheprguy) these days. But that's about to change because I promised myself to make an effort to blog as regularly as possible. After all, I started as a blogger. Now, I'm back!
I have South Korea to thank because the country is just inspiring!

DR. MARTENS X MARK WIGAN

Image
"Paris has Toulouse Lautrec, London's got Wigan. That's the nom de nib of Mr. Mark Williams -an artist who poser packed drawings immortalise the murky menagerie of late night hipsterdom" - NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS
You would already know what to expect from this collaboration between Dr. Martens and Mark Wigan from this statement alone. For AW15, Dr. Martens have collaborated with Wigan to create a collection including both footwear and accessories. They wanted to work with Mark due to his unique take on club and youth culture, depicting diversity, fashion, music and the cultural melting pot which has always celebrated self-expression, style and identity which is as relevant now as it was back in the day and rings true to the values if the brand. Mark Stands for "Drawing Inspiration from Music".

URBANEARS FALL/WINTER 2015 COLLECTION

Image
If we had four seasons in the Philippines, Fall would have to be my favorite. But since we don't, then wet season it is. Good thing Korea (and Japan!) is just a mere four hours away from our country making it accessible for sentimental people like me to experience the whole drama that is Fall.
I also like the colors that are associated with the season and for its Fall/Winter 2015 collection, I think Urbanears captured the mood perfectly. Here's the latest from Urbanears and a sneak peek at my first day in South Korea aka how-I-managed-to-link-the-two-together.

ESPEROS WEEKEND WARRIOR - EDINBURGH

Image
Anyeong-haseyo! I'm back from South Korea! I have good memories (I actually fell in love with Seoul) from this trip and just like the previous ones before this, I can't wait to share it with all of you. Of course, in my blog's perfect time. Haha. I still have unpublished stories from the last four countries I visited this year but there's a big chance that I'll feature this one first. Maybe.
My first day was spent surrounded with the first signs of Autumn in Incheon. The changing colors of the leaves actually complimented my Edinburgh Weekend Warrior bag which arrived just in time for my trip. Talk about perfect timing!
The Edinburgh Weekend Warrior is the sophisticated approach to your favorite weekend bag. Designed to carry everything you need for a vacation away, it is made of the same quality canvas used in vintage military gear. The Edinburgh Weekend Warrior is outfitted with two interior shoe pockets, nickel plated swivel-hook lanyards and an exterior pocket.…
