Boxfresh Brand Launch
Was invited to the launch of Boxfresh last night at Ronac Art Center & I was really excited to check out their stuff cuz I rarely get invited to events that showcase menswear only and clothes that fits my style. Went with my friends Ecks, Gerd & Jelito. I promise myself that this will be the last event I’m going to attend (for now) until I finish my thesis. But I was really happy I...
Boxfresh x Expedition
By elevating traditional streetwear to street fashion, Boxfresh has come up with inventive ways to make streetwear more wearable, even for the more finicky shopper. Its new collection carries the theme, “Expedition”, a reflection of the brand’s heritage outdoor inspired clothing which also represents the brand’s own streetwear roots. The look is rugged lumberjack – think wood cutter and utility...
The Boxfresh Movement: Redefining Streetwear
Inspired by hip British street culture, Boxfresh is a refreshing take on popular streetwear and a fun addition to the continuously evolving street fashion especially in the local scene. From selling imported work wear from a stall in Greenwich Market, Boxfresh founders have remained true to their independent ideals and beliefs which early on was quite shocking for some people. Through the...
Save It For A Rainy Day
What I wore to the Boxfresh launch party at Ronac Art Center today (separate blog post). Manila’s weather is so bipolar these days & today it was rainy so instead of the usual earthy/dark-colored outfit, I opted to wear something bright. I usually don’t wear a lot of color but I really like the hue of the sweater! Thanks for taking my photos Jelito de Leon & Gerd Perez! Sorry...

Artworks by Readers
I don’t know if it’s the rainy weather or I’m just being melodramatic but I’ve been feeling a bit down these past few days because of bad things that’s been happening and some people who are trying to bring me down. I should keep in mind to never let these people stop me from what I love doing and never let it dishearten me. I also realized that there are more people...
The first film of OS Vol. 1 is inspired with the wild stray cats wandering off the streets. These deserted felines become agitated beasts, always scavenging for food and shelter as they wander off for survival in the jungle known to man-the city. This video exhibits the spirit of both the raw and the primitive yet contemporary which is similar to the aesthetic of OS’s first collection. Film...

Denim Dreams,Reversible Jeans
Oxygen is at it again! These reversible pants are no doubt the coolest twist that has ever happened to our normal everyday blue jeans.

How cool is that! (Matutuwa pa ang labandera niyo! lol) It...
UAAP + Tech-On Seminar
Was invited again by De La Salle University together with Lissa Kahayon to do a talk about online marketing. I had to cut my 3D animation class for it but it was worth it! Although we weren’t informed that the audience will be from The College of Computer Studies so we focused more on fashion blogging rather than blogging in general, but I hope they were able to pick up something from our...

SMART just launched the Starter Plug-It, it’s actually the first and most affordable prepaid dongle for only freaking 995 pesos (one-time fee) + it’s pretty fast as well!

Field trips are always fun cuz you get to ride a bus + you know your classmates will bring pringles and ice-cold water jugs, at least that’s what I thought. Only 8 people showed up!
