A gentleman's approach
MANILA, Philippines - Clean and sleek designs dominate the men’s classics as premier retailer Stores Specialists, Inc. brings in the newest Fall/Holiday collections for men. Filled with a selection of suits and basics, a gentleman certainly finds his style here.
Donning a multi-faceted character, Miguel Lopez de Leon has propelled himself into a world of many opportunities. From sports to the arts, his modern and versatile qualities mirror that of a Renaissance man. Such is how he upholds his lifestyle — adaptable, talented and full of passion.
Armed with a vivid imagination that translates to his work, Miguel has successfully woven himself into the literary circle with his award-winning novels, short stories and poems. Travelling between Manila and California, Miguel also pursued acting with a degree from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. Though acting captured his interest, “the literary offers were too good to not warrant my attention,” he relates. Currently, Miguel is finishing his series entitled The Hillside Chronicles with book one available by end of 2010.
Walking his chosen career path, Miguel also carries a very classic take on style. Comfort is still key in choosing his pieces with jeans as his staple. He works in denims, with either a comfortable shirt or a tailored blazer for a sleek finish. He finds a suit and tie fit for special occasions and at times a barong when here in Manila.
This season, Raoul looks to the ’80s for inspiration. Drawn from this bold decade, the mood is strong to create a distinctive look. Urban and social trends take shape in Springfield’s new collection, while a combination of style is reflected in various jeans, checks and knits. Marlboro Classics’ offers tradition and modernity with accessories that focus on crackled leather, oiled or coated canvases, soft leathers or Scottish plaid materials. Together with Boss Black’s streamlined tailoring and ultra masculine style, formal elements are also evident in Massimo Dutti’s cold tones contrasting with bright colours, and warm fabrics alongside avant-garde shapes and delicate details.
