Seeing these pictures would probably remind you of a hip brand the youthquake would surely love. Well, think twice and you'll be surprised to know this brand has been around for quite awhile and is currently undergoing a style change. Moving with the times, the retail legend am talking about is Pierre Cardin. In Manila, known for their menswear line well-suited for the man on the streets, the new take is reinventing corporate with casuals in a youthful spin. Old ties are loosened up with a variety of cool casual pieces beyond the stereotype boardroom dressing. Incorporating the current trends that matter, the fashion forward look is bolder than ever. The old-new brand is set to take their classic style to the forefront in the season's most wanted hues. Change is inevitable and in fashion with it comes reinvention. With a load of brights matched with denim or the ever dependable khakis, these sharp casuals are must-buy essentials for the modern man's wardrobe this summer.
Bright and easy.
