Design Fusion and Visions & Trends, PFW Holiday 2011

Sony VAIO presented Design Fusion and Visions & Trends last Saturday at the SMX Convention Centre in Manila as part of the recently concluded Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2011. The show featured talented and dynamic fashion designers flaunting their collections in stylish grandeur. I’m so honoured to be a part of the Philippine Fashion Week this year, even just for a day’s event. 🙂

I dragged along an artist friend of mine, I, for the night’s fashionable affair.

I and Me - Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2011
Me and “I”

Designers present were Bo Parcon, Don Protasio, Russel Villafuerte, Veejay Floresca, Xernan Orticio, Aries Lagat, Enrico Carado, Happy Andrada, Jaki Peñalosa, Jan Garcia, Kenneth Chua, Regine Dulay and Oz Go. The collections were mostly contemporary—from having a futuristic feel (think Lady Gaga or Star Trek) to having a classic/traditional touch (think Buddhist Monks, Burlesque Queens or the Byzantine Empire). I will make separate posts dedicated to each of the designers’ collections.

Of course, Sony showcased their ever stylish and colourful laptops with its wide array of C and S series VAIO laptops. When it comes to stylish and aesthetically-pleasing laptops, it’s either Mac or Sony that comes first to my list. 😉

Here are some fashion shots provided by Sony:





Here are some of the pics I took during the show featuring Sony VAIO:

Mad about Cambridge Satchels!

I’m mad–pretty mad about getting one of these yummy Cambridge Satchels! They look so chic and classy, yet roomy enough to store books, stacks of paper and even a laptop!

Each bag is made of 100% genuine leather, and comes in a variety of colours.

As for the sizes, they come in 11″, 13″, 14″ and 15″.

They’re available locally in Madison (in Archaeology Wing, Rockwell Power Plant Mall).

Cambridge Satchel in Navy
I’m thinking of getting a satchel in yellow, dark brown or navy.

Cambridge Satchel in Purple and Yellow
This two-toned batchel (satchel with a top handle) in purple and yellow is such an eye candy!

Cambridge Satchel in Vintage and Navy
…but, I’m digging this classic piece in vintage and navy.

Gadget Candy: ONTO Headphones


Image fr

Happy Easter everyone! Now that I’m reminded of bunnies and colourful eggs, let’s hop into candy-coloured gadgets as the topic of my post for today. 😉

For a music aficionado like moi, owning a pair of earphones and/or headphones is a must! I used to own a pair of TIs back in the days (not to mention, a pair of Sennheiser earphones), but I really wanted a pair of headphones that’s lightweight and won’t ruin my already unruly locks when wearing.

Good thing, I spotted these cutesy ONTO Headphones by Audio-Technica.

ONTO has a simple yet stylish design, and comes in a variety of interesting colours. Its innovative ultra-slim stainless headband gives me a just-enough support without ruining my ‘do. It’s super lightweight, so I could wear it for hours without feeling the stress in my head that most heavy headphones give. The stereo sound is a-ok for me. Of course, I still want to have the badass goodies like the most coveted Beats Studio Headphones by Dr. Dre.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t have its own volume controls, so I always have to rely on my music player when adjusting the volume. The band is also prone to scratch. Since mine’s tinged in black, I just repair it using a permanent marker.

But anyway, it’s still my perfect everyday headphones. It’s small and portable that it fits perfectly in my small sling bag.

I got my ONTO in black for a minimalist yet chic appeal. 😛

Price is only around Php 1,800 in Astrovision (Php 2,100 in iStudio).
