Summer, at least in the Philippines, is all about traveling to a desired destination. In the season of sun, fashion seeks the next on-the-radar location to reveal the latest in trendsetting style.
Global retail has found the need and relevance in creating pieces or ready-to-wear lines to supply growing market demands. Since two years ago, designer brands have begun to create new fashion for traveling. Passport-ready wardrobes for the season are created not only for the jetset but for everyone. In modern times, this fashion collection is known as destination wear.
Manila’s style-setting landscape is ready to conquer any destination this season. After its trip to Morocco last month, Seek The Uniq (STU) is paving a new direction for summer 2017’s destination wear. As a barometer and vanguard of local bohemian lifestyle, STU has got its bags packing with a bunch of must-haves for your long-overdue beach and resort vacay. These curated pieces by STU’s purveyor of fashion and Women of Allure 2016 awardee Mikka Padua are practical for beach and resort destination dressing from day to night.
This season’s picks are: long and short tunics, embroidered wrap dresses, summer long dresses, sling bags, statement earrings, asymmetrical printed tops and printed jumpsuits. “The dresses and jumpsuits are easy to style. They’re throw-on-and-go types that can easily be dressed up or down,” says Mikka.
In this day and age of no-rules fashion, Seek The Uniq offers a refreshing, modern bohemian point of view. Fashion is fun and fearless under the heat with a wardrobe ready for any sun-seeking destination. Take on a new travel vibe with a new dress code, a fun play of prints and tapestry of textures that will surely get you noticed. Get thrilled in experimenting and dressing up by adding on a statement bag or an accessory that will surely add accent to any ensemble. The bohemian look is still on a global high as parameters and borders continue to extend and reach new territories. After all, contemporary fashion continuously evolves and is all set to fly to any summer destination.
