A Toast to French Fashion - Je Ne Sais Quoi

A woman's life is already complicated as it is, fashion shouldn't be. Enter the Je Ne Sais Quoi fashion outlook, where women put "I don't know what" pieces together and magically comes out as a buzz-worthy and unique look.

We've said goodbye to old fashion conventions and mended different pieces from different style perspectives into unique ensembles ready to hit the streets of both Manila and France.

Promod's pieces are ready to wear whenever season and wherever location. Our Je Ne Sais Quoi collection reflects the French fashion philosophy - "less is more" while discreetly radiating a woman's sensuality and sexiness. Something that would make people say "I would wear that!" in seconds, because really - women can only have so much time between brunch meetings and their blackberries.

The Je Ne Sais Quo Look Book:

French Ballet (École Française) - puffed shoulders to lean on, pearls and laces to play with, and a layered skirt to flirt with. A pair of strappy shoes that feels like ballet complete the fantasy of being the swan in the city.

Bonjour! Ahoy!
- the French nautical look is a skill French women have mastered. A crisp look with stripes and whites, accentuated with reds via a chic pair of sunglasses, printed and puffy black skirt, and peep toe flats. Sail away with ease and explore an ocean of the high streets.

Bourgeois Bohemian - one of Promod's strengths when it comes to style is characterized by vintage-looking pieces matched with romantic fabrics and silhouttes. Not to mention ethnic embroidery found on the vest. The pointy shoulders created by the inner blouse gives an instant updated look to this ensemble.

Nomad in l'ete - sunworshippers and travelbugs celebrate l'ete or the French Summer in light comfortable wear with a splash of color in the form of a scarf. Sexy and comfortable, because French women celebrate their body without any fuss - and so should we. This ensemble is simple but with the right dash of accessories like a layered necklace and slim belt, everything deliciously comes together.

In Love with Louvre
- a vintage skirt that reminds of hand paintings inside the Louvre Museum makes any woman feel like a Mona Lisa.Simple yet elegant accentuated by black petals on the chest and a flowery black belt. A perfect ensemble for a creative day inspired by your favorite masters of art.

The Je Ne Sais Quoi styles were created by me and Joe, one of our mannequins would be on exhibit tomorrow at the Megamall Atrium :) April 29, 2010 - 3PM.

Johnson's Body Care Lotion x Bayo - Soft Look Collection

Frills and layers paired with a curly loose hair style create a soft look

It all begins with soft, clear skin. That is exactly what Johnson's body care mission is for women to enjoy fashion fit for a lady. Together with Bayo, Johnson's body care showcased fashionable pieces that celebrate a woman's soft skin. This is the Soft Look collection, as romantic as it can get.

Soft but powerful, pointy shoulders married with soft fabric

I've seen some of the clothes in Johnson's Body Care Lotion TV advertisement but I did not expect that the pieces from Bayo's Soft Look Collection would look even more romantic in person. Definitely drool-worthy, imagine showing up on a date wearing one of these romantic ensembles.

Pieces in pastel and light colors

To achieve the soft look, remember that it's all about skin. Yet, observe how the pieces above are sexy without going overboard. Johnson's Body Care Lotion has 3 variants for you to choose from whether you need to moisturize, relax, or whiten your skin.

The Soft Look Collection pieces are available in Bayo stores until June 15, 2010. When you buy anything from the collection, you will get a free Johnson's Body Care Lotion :)

Face Off presents Ivarluski Aseron

The recent face off did not feature just two but four highly renowned Filipino designers including Ivarluski Aseron.

This was my first time seeing Aseron's work ramp down the runway and if I may attempt to do a commentary, the collection was a feast of different necklines fused into a contrast of sharp and soft silhouttes.

Deep v-necks that sophisticatedly show off the woman's cleavage take the shape of men's vests that radiate Aseron's signature edgy peek-a-boo style.

The cut out skirt reminds me of paper dolls

The runway was also filled with Aseron's geometrical shapes and cut-outs close to the body. Sexy and powerful. Pieces were in black, grey, and white shades of soft yet sharply cut fabrics.

All in all Ivarluski showed 20 pieces that somehow came out of the new Samsung 3D TV.

I was thinking of meeting my idol designer face to face and doing an interview but some say, never meet your heroes and admiration from afar is the best as it can get x.x

It could never be more fashionable than this and so we thank Samsung for supporting another successful round of Face Off to celebrate lifestyle and creativity. And of course for the front seats! :)

Up next is Patrice Ramos-Diaz at Face Off, hold on for another fashionably intoxicating style post.
