Oooh, I love this Capsule Collection of Masha Reva for concept store – Atelier 1. The layering is very unique and well… my choice of colors. I am going to travel in a cold place soon and the jackets will be really cool to wear.
Masha Reva is a Ukrainian designer and artist. She lives and work and Kiev, drawing and making short movies too. Very creative. I love her website and it is bursting with tons of really good work.

Yes, I did it anyway. With my compact camera and a little Photoshop play, I came up with my first outfit post. It was on Thursday that I found a bit oversized wraparound black dress, a breather from wearing mostly tight clothing. This is like akin to a Japanese kimono but shorter sleeves and skirt, very cool despite that it’s black.

When I feel like doing an outfit post, the camera lens went kaput. I guess this idea will be put on hold for awhile but I need to scout a cam asap. Vacation is looming and unfortunately I will not be going home. Browsing on Proudrace’s collection made me miss the PI even more. It feels good to see Filipino designers creating clothes that blends well with my sometimes dark and minimalist aesthetics. Proudrace’s clothes look comfortable and quite classic to wear on streets and at work without losing that avant garde touch.
Proudrace is a Manila based clothing label owned by Pat Bondoc and Rik Rasos. The duo found a common ground to produce clothing that is forward, raw, minimal, androgynous but definitely wearable.

I am getting enamored by the influx of unconventional clothes online. As I discovered more and more designers and their unique creations, I am just elated to add something here. The more unique and conceptual, the more I am inspired to experiment with fashion. COSMIC WONDER Light Source’s collection is light, airy, simple, fresh and neutral, just my kind of wardrobe. I was smitten. They do create cosmic wonders in my brain. When I visited their site, I thought I was in for some transcendental experience.
The Center for COSMIC WONDER is a conceptual project that was started way back in 1997 by artist Yukinori Maeda. COSMIC WONDER Light Source is one of their three activities in the center which is geared mainly for fashion. It is about wearing light, sharing warmth, and opening up the brightness of life in the universe. Isn’t that a joy?
