GAP RELEASED ITS NEW FALL COLLECTION
Gap’s latest presentation is tied with the brand’s Gap for Good’s sustainable clothing initiative, so wearing something from their new Soft Denim line won’t just look good but will also feel good, especially as the pieces are priced as low as Php1,950, with basic tees for everyday wear tagged at Php795.
Gap’s Good Creates Good fall campaign highlights the Gap for Good programs, which are all about making good products with good fits that are also good for the world—good for the world as they were made with less water than usual and with sustainable materials. Designers at Gap even developed Washwell™ smart wash techniques to help consumers save water and reduce pollution without their denim items losing their look and feel after laundry.
Gap also introduced Soft Wear, a curated collection of super soft garments for men and women. From slim, skinny, and jegging pants to soft-colored tees and fleece sweatshirts, Soft Wear promises a super soft feel on the inside and outside, even as the material looks like regular denim.
NEW EYEWEAR COLLECTIONS FOR THE NEW SEASON
Branded Lifestyle Inc.’s Prestige Eyewear collections brought the latest from Guess, Vedi Vero, Esprit, and Elle.
Guess’s highlights three sunglasses models and two optical frames. Classic and timeless, the GU7551 features square acetate frames in a feminine tortoiseshell palette and a discreet triangle logo on the temples.
Another pair that’s inspired by the ’50s is the GU2672F from the Iconic Collection,with its trendy, round-shaped acetate frames, keyhole bridge, contrast-colored temples, and laminated triangle detail. It’s available in solid colors or in a Havana print version, which is a particularly warm spotted shade of brown.
From the Italian-designed Korea brand Vedi Vero comes an eyewear style that mixes high-end appeal with streetwear sensibilities. The VVE864 has an angular cat-eye shape that looks good on any facial shape. Made from high-quality acetate, its edgy vintage style features flat metal temples and matching curved temple tips for a secure fit.
Esprit meanwhile offers innovative eyewear for men and women made from the new thermoplastic material TR90 that makes the frames lightweight and unbreakable. For women, the ET17913 has a subtle cat-eye-shaped TR90 frame and gold metal temples that wrap around its frontals to make a fashion statement and enhance one’s natural allure.
The modern, minimalist, and square-shaped ET17527 is designed for men and is suitable for any face shape. It comes in trendy metal with acetate temple tips and adjustable nose pads for comfort.
Rounding everything up is ELLE’s EL13419 that combines the classic horn-rimmed frame with modern touches. Its plastic frames feature sculpted nose pads, flexible temples, and an eye-catching geometric metal detail.
