() - October 19, 2011 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Fashion meets art again this holiday season as fashionalistic brand Freeway combines the best of both worlds with the latest installment of the most-loved National Artist Collectors’ Series. This Holiday 2011 collection features the works of Vicente Manansala, National Artist for Visual Arts. This is the sixth installment of the series which was creatively originated in 2009.

In the past years, Freeway has featured National Artists Nick Joaquin (literature), Ang Kiukok (visual arts), Jose Garcia Villa (literature), Ramon Valera (fashion design) and F. Sionil Jose (literature) who was the first living National Artist in the Series.

Vicente Manansala, our beloved well-known Philippine Cubist painter and illustrator, reinterpreted or indigenized Cubism as he drew his themes from the familiar Filipino environment. Some of his masterpieces are “Madonna of the Slums,” a portrayal of mother and child from the countryside who became urban shanty residents once in the city; and “Jeepneys” wherein Manansala combined the elements of provincial folk culture with the congestion issues of the city. Manansala was proclaimed National Artist for Painting in 1982.

This creative fusion of fashion and art is reinstated to a lavishly beautiful 22-piece collection including classic and modern tailored dresses, woven shirt tops, sublimation print graphic tees and dresses, Manansala watch, tote bags and accessories. Get royally ready to get your Freeway x Manansala fashion fix this. The collection will officially hit the stores on Oct. 21.

All items will have their own gift packaging and a swing tag of Manansala’s bio.
