Tadashi Shoji FW2018 & Store Opens Premier Boutique in Manila

Published

on

A great understanding of the female body and a flair for modern femininity have led design house Tadashi Shoji to be among the brands trusted by celebrities and other high-profile women for red carpet events. The lifestyle brand can easily be located at major department stores in some of the world’s biggest cities in countries like the United States, China, and the Middle East. The brand is also recognizably represented every season at New York Fashion Week.

In the Philippines, Tadashi Shoji has been a long-time staple on the racks of luxury department store Rustan’s. This year, design house Tadashi Shoji announced that it is opening a premier boutique in Manila, at the 2nd level of Rustan’s Makati. The 80-square-meter boutique features an expansive stark white space that’s brightly lit by crystal chandeliers. Racks filled with elegant eveningwear and cocktail dresses line the walls of the store, while show-stopping creations occupy the beautiful showcases. Aside from just womenswear, the boutique will also carry the brand’s childrenswear, shapewear, and evening bags.

If that doesn’t thrill the well-heeled crowd, the Tadashi Shoji Fall/Winter 2018 collection will. The latest pieces are characterized by glitter, with heavy and elaborate beading that does not hold back on Old World glamour. Whimsical draping and loose silhouettes are other shared details highlighted by the collection. The brand and its designer find inspiration in the woman who enchants her life with her sensuality, color, and joie de vivre.

The pieces focus on accentuating a woman’s natural curves by way of cut, line, and silhouette. The dresses find common ground in bold hues and by delicately baring the shoulders. From knits and fringes, embroideries, peony prints, laces and tulles, up to jeweled and velvet clutches, the Fall/Winter collection is expertly designed for the elegant woman who enjoys living life.

Tadashi Shoji is exclusively available in Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-La and Rustan’s Cebu.

Our Favourite Looks at the Met Gala 2019 Red Carpet

What exactly does “camp” mean?

Published

on

In the western part of the world, it’s the first Monday of May, and what does that mean? The Met Gala 2019. It’s probably the most-celebrated fashion event every year, and why wouldn’t it be? Everyone who’s invited, from the biggest celebrities, including models and fashion insiders, steps out of their comfort zones and into the most outrageous and extravagant outfits for the night. 

This year’s theme is probably a bit confusing for some; “Camp: Notes on Fashion” seems to be a slippery, hard-to-define concept for those who aren’t so well-versed with the industry. It actually isn’t about embodying a camping trip and arriving in hiking boots and lugging a tent and sleeping bags—no, camp means exaggeration, extra, over-the-top fashion.  

The people on this list (and some) notwithstanding, it seems that the guests didn’t get the memo. (We’re looking at the men dressed in plain black suits, and those who went theme? What theme?, but that’s a story for another day.) Here are our favourite, campiest looks on the red carpet:

Jennifer Lopez wears Furne One

Carnival meets couture as Jennifer Lopez wears Filipino designer’s creation in a new music video.

JLo Wears Furne One - Zee Lifestyle Cebu

JLo Wears Furne One - Zee Lifestyle Cebu

Former Zee editor Furne One’s successful design career in Dubai has been well-documented. Since launching the avant-garde fashion brand Amato Couture in 2002, he has since gained an international following of celebrity clientele that includes the likes of Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Kesha.

The latest addition to Furne’s ever-growing fashion repertoire is Jennifer Lopez. In her newly debuted music video, Medicine, the multi-awarded pop diva shows a flamboyantly chic medley of fashion and music as she wears pieces from the brand. However, this isn’t the first time Lopez has been seen wearing Furne’s creations. She performed her hit single, On the Floor, in 2011 with a sheer silver dress made by the label.

In the video, Lopez can be seen wearing a white ruffled one-piece suit from Furne’s 2018/19 haute couture collection. A closer look at the suit shows off the intricate pearl and crystal detailing embedded between the ruffles, giving Lopez an ethereal glow as she maneuvers the crystal ball.

Translated from Latin as love conquers all, the Amor Vincit Omnia collection is a romantic take on Victorian-inspired pieces while the feathered white details are reminiscent of the similarly named painting of Cupid by Caravaggio.
