An end to fashion elitism? Not in Milan

Social media are being credited with democratising the landscape of fashion in London and New York. But in Milan's swankiest shopping street, an end to the industry's ingrained elitism, with its invitation-only events and cosy tribalism, still seems a long way off. Via Montenapoleone, home to the flagship stores of the cream of Italian design, is where the conceptual currency of the catwalks is converted into hard cash. And in its glittering stores, platinum credit cards will keep the cash tills ringing long after the fashionistas have decamped to the next catwalk fest in Paris. Window-shopping with a friend, local Lila Sciacca says few in the city would dispute the economic benefits of fashion week: 48 million euros ($54 million) was City Hall's estimate of the revenues driven by the last bash. An amateur dressmaker, …

The art of aging gracefully

Anti-aging—it’s such a loaded word. This is how modern beauty businesses have hardwired their innovations. People are all hooked on this buzz word because everyone wants to prevent and “to fight” the aging process. Human Nature is the Philippines’ largest brand of genuinely natural and affordable personal care, cosmetics, and home care. Eight years ago, it started its journey for a Pro-Philippines, Pro-poor, and Pro-environment company. This year, just in time for its anniversary, Human Nature celebrates being Pro-aging. After five years of rigorous product development, Human Nature launches a product that embraces the aging process. Human Nature found a balance, that middle ground through Radiant Grace Night Cream.  This green beauty innovation treats the needs of aging skin but does not disrupt the skin’s natural processes. It is “anti-aging” in a …

Brand recall

Images by Noel Pabalate Kashieca, Human, and Bench—three of the country’s leading homegrown ready-to-wear brands—presented their respective holiday collections recently at Bench Tower’s The Playground. The event also doubled as a debut for the brands’ Benchsetters and Human Endorsers, two groups of young, attractive, and stylish achievers with strong social-media presence and daring fashion sense. For the first time in years, Suyen Corp. has tapped relatively unknown fashionistas instead of popular celebrities as its brand ambassadors. They are Angel Manzano, Emil Khodaverdi, Arisse de Santos, Matthew Custodio, and Kahlea Belonia for Bench; and Curtismith and Mau Schrijvers for Human. They may not be as tall as the show’s professional models, but what these teens and twenty-somethings lacked in height, they made up for in looks, stage presence, and attitude. Some of them are …

Art to wear

Who doesn’t love the smell of a good leather bag? But what happens after it gets locked up in your cabinet for quite some time? Aside from collecting dust, the worst-case scenario is that it can have molds. For those who have a gazillion bags in their closet, it’s best to rotate them and use different bags from time to time. I received this question from @khazkhaz on my personal Facebook account: “Hi Jake, I have a favorite bag that I keep using, but I can’t help but feel that it’s getting worn out. What can I do to revitalize it? Everyone has their “default” bag that they tend to use over and over again. I try my best to switch it up and showcase a different bag every now and then. It …

He shot onto the world stage after winning a glittering international fashion prize previously given to design icons Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld. Yet India's Suket Dhir -- hailed by Vogue as a potential "global fashion superstar in the making" -- is uneasy about the sudden attention that has come with winning the International Woolmark Prize for menswear this year.

Dhir is now in a race against time to deliver his award-winning collection to prominent department stores in New York, Paris, Tokyo, Seoul and Sydney from next month -- as well as around $75,000 in prizemoney to build up his business, he also …

Under low lights and with a pumping soundtrack, bright young things wearing black leather and slouchy ripped denim put some swagger into London Fashion Week, courtesy of Donatella Versace. The Italian designer showed her diffusion line Versus in a club-like atmosphere for a typically tough and sexy collection brimming with attitude. There were cutaway dresses exposing the shoulder and stomach, with a silver zip running down the back, and pleated and leather mini-skirts -- one with the belt left provocatively open -- matched with leather jackets. Bonded mesh dresses and crop tops brought a sporty edge to the collection, which also featured cropped, zip-up bomber jackets, military-style knits and washed out ripped denim with metal and crystals sparkling underneath. "This is about everything real. It's about how the Versus Versace generation live their lives, …
