Fashion Watch: Ivar Aseron

Manila was experiencing everyday heavy rains last week and yes the streets were flooded as always.  Classes was suspended and people from work were sent home due to the rising in water level plus the major traffic jam everywhere. But despite all these, nothing can stop one of the best shows to happen in Manila fashion--Fashion Watch:  Ivar Aseron and Joey Samson.  Yes the show started an hour late, but despite the downpour, the place was super packed with celebrities, industry insiders, high society dressed in cold weather ensembles.  

The first show was all about Ivar Aseron's latest collection entitled "Papillion".  Inspired by the intriguing and mystical beauty of butterflies, adaptations of wing-like details echoed through noteworthy and standout key pieces.  Strokes of genius was seen in masterful incantations with the fusion of modern fabrication such as real soft leather, tulle and jersey. Known for his architectural, sculptural and geometric trademark, Aseron's design excellence and perfection of form was showcased in a narrative of refreshing silhouettes and techniques that are fashion forward.  In essence, one can feel a mood in the new season--cool luxury.  Bold, brave and innovative, the use of unconventional tones such magenta, teal, coffee, taupe and plum is style setting the season anew.  Contemporary hues are introducing a non-conformist palette creating a powerful statement of clear subtle glamour.  The refreshing palette and fluidity of movement in the entire collection is brilliantly remarkable and to date one of the best collections of the young master. Papillion is a captivating narrative on luxe and exciting insight on the shape of things to come in Philippine fashion.
