The new concept of chic
Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - July 2, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - She’s tough, elegant, and sophisticated. A woman who knows what she wants, who dresses for herself and not for others; whose style draws her to contemporary pieces derived from classic silhouettes. This is the woman of Philosophy and Karen Millen.

For years, Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti and Karen Millen have been synonymous with elegance, timelessness, and refinement. But this season, both brands choose to thrust forward with styles that are haphazardly more masculine, a bit androgynous, and street. Taking cues from real, dress-down, working women, both brands present transitional wear that’s perfect for wavering weather, without sacrificing style or sophistication.

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti’s latest offerings are undeniably happy. The brand presents the concept of sartorial refinement through sun-kissed hues and fluid silhouettes, while contrasting them against urban separates as if borrowed from the boyfriend’s closet. The collection is cool and simplistic, focusing on combining unlikely pieces to create ultra-modern yet feminine looks. Each ensemble is complemented with quaint crossbody bags and mini satchels.

Still prim and pretty, Karen Millen presents its trendy, youthful side with looser silhouettes and slouchy separates. A graphic bomber jacket piped with black trim, neon lace shift dresses, and a laser-cut cropped top are just some of the pieces highlighted in the brand’s new collection for the modern muse. Versatile yet sensual, any piece from the new collection can be worn from day to night with ease. Intelligent dressing is the core to Karen Millen’s new concept of chic.

The contemporary woman can now find wardrobe staples that suit her fast-paced and vibrant lifestyle with modern pieces inspired by the street, yet cut and sewn in an atelier.

The Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti boutique is located at Level 1, Shangri-La Plaza East Wing, Mandaluyong City; and Karen Millen is located at the ground level, C1 Building, Bonifacio High Street Central, Taguig.
