Last Thursday, October 1, 2015 I was invited to witness the exclusive preview of what the latest collection of UNIQLO is all about.
Hosted by one of the most talented women in the industry,
Ms. Bianca Valero
UNIQLO offers its special collection only in its large stores in Metro Manila – SM Megamall, SM North Edsa, SM Aura and SM Mall of Asia. These branches have the widest and most complete selection of apparels for women, men, kids and babies. The stores carry limited-edition pieces from international brands and designer collaborations such as DISNEY Magic for All, Ines De La Fressange, and UNIQLO’s most recent partnership with French fashion designer Christophe Lemaire.
UNIQLO and LEMAIRE
The UNIQLO and LEMAIRE collection represents products that embody the LifeWear concept – simple made better – that is shared by both brands. Every item combines elegance with moderate relaxation and comfort, for modern and advanced wardrobe mainstays.
The much-anticipated collaboration showcases UNIQLO’s high quality materials at a perfect price. Sophisticated yet accessible, it offers a timeless color palette of greens, navies, whites, and reds. The men’s and women’s collections will be available in SM Megamall and SM Aura, two out of UNIQLO’s four large stores starting October 2 until the end of Fall Winter 2015.
UNIQLO and Ines De La Fressange Paris
In 2013, former fashion model and muse of designer Karl Lagerfeld, Ines De La Fressange re-launched her own brand, INES DE LA FRESSANGE PARIS, a luxury lifestyle brand that includes a wide range of products to create a truly Parisian style, from ready-to-wear apparel to interior decorations.
Forward to 2015, Ines combined her interest in UNIQLO’s LifeWear with her unique sense of style, based on refined feminine beauty and authentic quality. The UNIQLO and INES DE LA FRESSANGE 2015 Collection Fall and Winter Collaboration employs wool and other natural fabrics in a variety of styles and colors. Ines’ jackets for this season retain traditional tailoring, while offering the modern comforts that women want.
Now there is good news to those who have kids and who are also kids at heart.
Disney MAGIC FOR ALL Collection
The MAGIC FOR ALL 2015 Fall Winter collection offers a wide range of products from Ultra-Light Down, fleece, flannel shirts, and UTs, to plush toys, umbrellas, room slippers and more. The collection features Walt Disney’s beloved characters such as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, as well as popular characters from Star Wars, Disney Pixar, Toy Story, Marvel’s Avengers and Frozen.
This is my friend Angel from When in Manila. Grabbing this opportunity to thank her for accompanying me that night. :)
Please do not forget that UNIQLO is on sale from October 2 - 8, 2015.
But beyond all our adoration for clothing and fashion let us be guided by what God says from 1 Peter 3:3-4 ESV:
"Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious."
I hope to meet all the hidden persons reading this blog someday and know so much of their hearts with imperishable beauty.
Thank you also to Pao Oga and Therese Iglesias of Eon Inc for inviting me to this event.
