3. DU Manille A/W 2012 Collection HARD FLESH



Combined with DU Manille’s signature minimalism and modern silhouettes, the AW 2012 collection ‘HARD FLESH’ goes deeper and edgier with plays of contrasting textures and fabrics—from cotton to leather, jerseys and spikes—setting up the mood for those who are not afraid of taking chances when it comes to style. The brand also steps out with bright, bold prints and even pops of color. The collection has undertaken more ground, as DU Manille presents jackets, skirts, tights, and accessories, along with their basic tops, all of which still embody everyday comfort, wearability, and stylishness.

DU Manille is also proud to present its first collaboration piece, “Beautiful Decay,” featuring Preview Magazine’s Merlito Pabatao to be launched on Sept. 30, 2012. The design is “a concoction of good and bad, light and dark. He or she is someone who has a malevolent fa├žade, yet a vulnerable heart with a remarkable passion for art and music,” according to the artist, whose inspirations range from Vogue’s Grace Coddington and Christina Aguilera.

The AW 2012 campaign also features PMAP model Ornusa Cadness, along with resident male model Daniel Marsh, both of whom were expertly styled by celebrity stylist, Xie Antonio, and photographed by DU Manille’s creative director Benjo Billones.  

Watch out as DU Manille releases new items almost every week, with more designs and surprises awaiting.

Again, we are inviting you to like our Facebook fan page (http://facebook.com/dumanille) and follow us on Twitter (http://twitter.com/du_manille) to view the latest collection. Please spread the word via your blog/ twitter/ facebook. Thank you very much!

5. Ensembles x Chris Diaz Holiday 2012 Collection
This is one collaboration I'm most excited about!!! I am a huge fan of Chris Diaz. I've always dreamed of owning one of his pieces ever since I started pulling out some of his dresses from MYTH. I've used a lot of his gorgeous clothes for editorial shoots and they never fail to standout. Anyway, I love his ENSEMBLES capsule collection!:)

Ensembles by Chris Diaz Holiday 2012 collection boasts a perfect balance of wearability and artistry. The collection pays homage to Diaz’ design aesthete – lace. With Chris Diaz on board, romanticism takes center stage in the form of lace, soft fabrics and color blocking. This 17 piece collection includes standout dresses and blazers, flattering tops in chiffon and poplin, dresses and skirts all grounded in different treatments such as lovely laces, colorblocking and soft fabrics – representing a woman that is romantic and effortlessly chic.

Diaz understands what women want to wear and which elements can flatter the body. 
Ensembles and Carmina Villarroel are an epitome of empowered and fulfilled women.  See the artistic interpretation of Chris Diaz with its Holiday 2012 capsule collection for Ensembles.  For more information about Ensembles by Chris Diaz Young Designer Series Holiday 2012, please visit www.ensembles.com.ph.  Like on facebook.com/EnsemblesOnline and follow on Twitter twitter.com/EnsemblesOnline, Pinterest pinterest.com/EnsemblesOnline and Instagram @EnsemblesOnline.
