Italian elegance and style by L’Inglesina Baby

It began with the passion of the company’s founder, Liviano Tomasi, for four wheels and mechanics in general.
In December 1963, accompanied by his brothers Augusto and Sergio, Tomasi embarked on what was to prove a far-sighted and courageous business venture: he created L’Inglesina Baby and, with it, the production of the first English-style prams.
Today L’Inglesina Baby is one of the leading companies in the infancy sector with that “Made in Italy” style, imparted by elegance, select fabrics, fine detail, and careful tailor-making—all of which have distinguished Inglesina in 30 countries around the world for over 40 years.

Classica is the pram par excellence, the embodiment of elegance and a real “must have” purchase. This is a traditional English-style pram produced by Inglesina for over 40 years, employing artisan quality methods of manufacture, meticulous attention to detail and, at all times, materials of the highest quality. Php 59,995

Jonathan Adler x Lacoste

PARIS—To celebrate its Holiday Collector’s Series collaboration with Jonathan Adler, Lacoste hosted an exclusive event last June 24th inside the Petit Palais South Gallery and lush garden.

Polo shirts designed by Adler were worn by models playing mixed doubles on a tennis court installed in the gallery.
Under the portico surrounding the garden, guests were invited to play Jonathan’s favorite sport, ping pong.

French sound sensation Yelle gave an incredible live performance.

Guests received a Jonathan Adler for Lacoste summer paper fan—to keep the heat at bay for the rest of the week.
Bite-sized BBQ morsels along with baby burgers and hot dogs were served.
A dedicated Cosmo Bar ensured guests got into the New York state of mind even in Paris.
Desserts included charming mini cupcakes and doll-sized ice cream sandwiches.

Each year, Lacsote commissions a guest designer to re-imagine its iconic L.12.12 polo shirt as part of the Holiday Collector’s Series.
Past editions have included UK design stars Tom Dixon and Michael Young, Brazilian brothers The Campanas and most recently, contemporary Chinese artist Li Xiaofeng.
For the 2011 edition, which is the sixth in the series, Lacoste invited American designer Jonathan Adler to conceive an exclusive and equally exciting polo and packaging project that may very well leave you questioning whether it is better to give or to receive.

Known for work that mixes modernist forms with bold colors and groovy graphics, the Jonathan Adler name is a promise of impeccable craftsmanship and distinctive design. His contemporary yet timeless style—an aesthetic he calls ‘Happy Chic’—is every bit as vivacious and unique as the designer himself.
Committed to producing beautiful collectibles for the ages, the company’s motto is: ‘If your heirs won’t fight over it, we won’t make it’.
For the Lacoste Holiday Collector’s Series #6, Jonathan has created unique polos using contemporary twists on traditional needlepoint techniques, one of the crafts he often incorporates into his own design work.

“I love the way Lacoste feels totally contemporary but also has an element of nostalgia,” Jonathan continues. “With this Holiday Collector’s Series project, I wanted to evoke the nifty and sporty feeling of American country clubs in the 1960s.”

The Lacoste Holiday Collector’s Series #6 will be available in Manila this December in all Lacoste boutiques at Greenbelt 3, Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Tower, The Power Plant Mall, Megamall, The Podium, Mall of Asia, Gateway, Trinoma, Eastwood Mall, Newport Mall, Robinsons Galleria, Robinson’s Place Manila, Alabang Town Center – Corte de las Palmas, Ayala Center Cebu, SM Davao, and Abreeza Davao City.

How to celebrate Philippine Star’s 25th

It’s the Philippine Star‘s 25th anniversary this month, so lots of events are happening in the city.
You may have noticed a few billboards on Edsa celebrating the personalities behind Philippine Star, such as columnists Ting Ting Cojuangco, Lucy Torres Gomez, and Rissa Mananquil for Bench.

Tingting, Lucy, Rissa

Recently I did a photo shoot for Bench with Star columnists Adel Tamano, Quark Henares, Erwin Romulo, Jessica Zafra and Stephanie Zubiri. I think it’s coming out during the big anniversary party later this month.
Also Margarita Forés concocted two dishes especially for me and my editor/mentor Millet Mananquil.
The dishes are part of Philippine Star and Ayala Malls’ EAT Dining Festival from 8 July to 30 September 2011 only.


You can get the dish for free if you use your BPI credit card card (minimum Php 1,500 purchase at Ayala Malls) or you can order à la carte at participating restaurants.

Margarita created Queen Millet’s Bouchee ala Reine 25, a vol-au-vent (hollow case of puff pastry) with a melange of 25 creamed enoki and shimeji mushrooms spiked with champagne, watercress garlic cream, asparagus, mixed greens with white wine dressing. Available at Lusso, Greenbelt 5, Makati, for only Php 260.

For me, Margarita made Cecile’s Spaghettini ‘Il Classico ala Chuva: garlic, chilli pepper, parsley on spaghettini cooked in extra virgin olive oil and topped with bone marrow. 
Available at CIBO Greenbelt 5, Glorietta 4, and Trinoma only.
Php 208 for a single order and Php 365 for La Famiglia.

Meat lovers Grace, Jay and I tried it at Cibo, Greenbelt 5, along with two orders of Tagliata di manzo Aglio Rosmarino. Washed down with a tall, cool glass of red grape shake, it was the perfect end to a satisfying meal. (Read: busog).


Thank you, Margarita Forés, Anthony Prudencio, Robert Lim, and your team!

Credibly challenged

On Sunday, Twitter was all about the girl who cried gang bang or “rape”.
It’s insignificant “model” Amanda Coling vs. four members of the Philippine National Football team, better known as the Azkals.

Screen shot 2011-07-17 at 8.51.53 PM

She made the rounds of all the gossip shows, including Showbiz Central with Pia Guanio.
This is painful to watch (read: very long)

She explains why she decided after one month to come out and cry rape—cause she was dropped out of FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women, presumably after the rape rumors came out.
But her credibility is whacked as this surfaces on Facebook (read: scary).
Disclaimer: Phil Younghusband is not one of the Azkals implicated in the case.

Screen shot 2011-07-17 at 8.50.26 PM

So please let this issue die. The issue became really tired by Sunday night. I just really wanted to say, she doesn’t sound like a victim. This is not Jodie Foster in The Accused.
Yung lang poe.
