Robin Tomas launches winning tee at Bloomingdales
Posted on

NEW YORK—A live DJ, cocktails, and hors d’ oeuvres welcomed various guests from the fashion industry and New York press to the launch of Filipino designer Robin Tomas’ winning T-shirt design for Supima last March 19, 2011 at the Bloomingdale’s flagship store in Manhattan.


The TOMAS for Supima T-shirt, a short sleeve v-neck tee in dual layers of soft luxurious Supima cotton—sold in a navy and grey colorway—was the best-selling item on the floor on its initial day of sales, according to Bloomingdale’s.

Supima, which stands for Superior Pima cotton is considered the ‘cashmere of cotton’ and is widely used by luxury brands all over the world. As its inspiration, Supima looked to the legendary Wool Secretariat competition that launched the careers of the then-teenaged designers Yves St. Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld.
TOMAS is a graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York. He is currently presenting his next collection of women’s cocktail separates under his own label ‘TOMAS’ for Fall 2011 in New York.
The special edition TOMAS for Supima t-shirt is now available at Bloomingdale’s 59th Street flagship in its Supima Collection shop.
