Hervé Chapelier opens at SM Aura

I’ve been a fan of Hervé Chapelier way back since my Parsons years in New York in the early ’90s.
That was when I used to frequent Galeries Lafayette on 57th and Fifth and discovered French brands like Xuly Bët, GR816, and Hervé Chapelier. Unfortunately my favorite shop closed its doors in 1994.
I would describe Hervé Chapelier as known for casual, boxy, very Japanese bag (even though it’s French) just because the Japanese love it so much. And here’s how they wear it.

Obviously they are partial to camou print.
Lucky for us, Hervé Chapelier just opened recently at SM Aura.

The store is great and huge and I don’t have to speak French to get what I want.

Prices range from Php 3,750 to Php 18,450. Design-wise I prefer this to Longchamp which everyone in Manila has that I only look forward to its special collar pieces with Jeremy Scott.

With their Target collection, it looks like 2014 will be another big year for PETER PILOTTO, and we can’t wait.


Real life cliques and tribes in Diesel’s new ad campaign

Nicola Formichetti’s vision as Artistic Director of Diesel continues to evolve with the campaign for Spring/Summer 2014 called “WE ARE CONNECTED”.
Instead of using models only, Diesel scoured the globe for real-life gangs, cliques, families, and tribes to represent the bravery and ingenuity of the Diesel brand.

What they found was an assortment of bold, inspiring, intriguing individuals with outstanding personal style and artistic points of view. The artists, musicians, models, writers, editors, students, and Internet creatives chosen for the campaign all share the same ideals—to promote artistry, to live and be accepted as oneself, to reject the status quo, and to change points of view through imagery.

When put together as groups, the chemistry between the diverse cast helped manifest iconic portraits of style gangs: bikers, cyberpunks, Asian stars, icy blondes, Japanese street-style teens.
In the Philippines, Diesel is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc. (SSI), located at The Power Plant Mall, Bonifacio High Street Central, Greenbelt 3 and Shangri-La Plaza Mall.
