while fashion week is going on in new york, london, milan, and currently paris, where all sorts of collaborations are being announced (H&M and lanvin, matthew williamson and bulgari, gap and valentino, lady gaga and coty), back here in manila, there are collaborations happening too between designers and ready-to-wear brands. last week, we wrote about the ensembles-louis claparols team-up, tomorrow randy ortiz will launch a holiday collection for kashieca called kashieca luxe, and yesterday was the formal announcement of viseversa's new creative director, patrice ramos-diaz. actually, viseversa, a brand that has been around for 20 years, has been bought from the woman who started it, rina go, by a couple of lawyers—leo and ana, who are actually husband and wife. the launch of the new collection, which will be rolling out in stores starting this month all the way through the holiday season, was held at the new the winebar, located at the second floor of café 1771 in el pueblo, ortigas center. cozy!
the new collection continues the spirit of the original viseversa, which is to produce classic-separates-with-a-twist for the working woman that you can mix and match with pieces you already own:
