ATC x Preview Editor’s Closet November 11-15

Shop like a Preview Editor and get the latest pieces this season, Preview magazine in collaboration with Alabang Town Center got you covered, This season trends are DENIM, POLKA DOTS, KNIT, 70s and Folk.

The previous ATC X Preview Editor’s Closet was also located at ATC’s Activity Center and every area there was a designated genre of clothing. For this year, is the same concept except that Preview pinpointed this season trends that we’ve been seeing recently in magazine covers and the runways. Personally, I see lots of Denim and 70s style revived lately. Then especially now its winter we’ll  be seeing lots of knits. 

It still has that cozy vibe while shopping, every area is in distinctively designed and Instagram-worthy accordingly. This year I noticed there were more accessories displayed. People might expect high end brands but there are also local brands that made it! Speaking of local brands, a lot them are stepping up their game and matching with the high end brands. These brands are able to follow trends and style that millenials and gen Z would really like. There are affordable pieces, if you patiently look around because different brands are distributed in each genre. You may spot pieces from P500 and above. 

I do agree that ATC is the best venue at the South, growing up at ATC I’ve seen a lot of posh and well dressed shoppers. Not like for fashion week glamour  but like well put together that seem classic and chic. 

Social Commerce comes to Southeast Asia with the launch of iamClaire. in the Philippines

With a mission of empowering positive transformations amongst female millennials, ALTUS Capital Digital launches iamClaire in the country – a fully-integrated community, media, and online buying platform that synergizes all three elements in new, meaningful ways.

Female millennials can consume tips and lifehacks from videos on beauty to articles on lifestyle and product reviews. Then there is a simple, fun way to buy them that is tied to the content and the community elements. iamClaire. users can also create accounts, post content, connect with other iamClaire. members, and essentially create their own online buying experience.     

“iamClaire. is about joining a community, a sisterhood that stands for positive transformation, about becoming a better you,” explains Liam Mendoza, vice president and chief operating officer, ALTUS Digital Capital.  

Randy McGraw, Bea Binene and Liam Mendoza

“We believe that launching iamClaire. in the Philippines represents the perfect opportunity to address the needs of both female millennial consumers and the brands in the beauty, health & wellness, and overall lifestyle sectors.  The shopping experience should be new— more social, more fun, more informed, and much less intrusive than what e-commerce presents them today,” says Randy McGraw, managing director and co-founder, ALTUS Digital Capital.

imClaire. is the first product ALTUS Digital Capital has unveiled to the market.

 

 

HOPE IN A SHIRT- FASHION WITH A CAUSE

While I was fitting the shirt, I couldn’t imagine that the fabric was made out from plastic bottles (11 bottles to be exact). The fabric is light & thin and the print is stylish ofcourse curated by Solenn Heausaff. Hope in a bottle’s advocacy is to help build classrooms around the Philippines – 37 classrooms and counting

This collaboration, a significantly designed shirt would cost PHP 2000 and it would be available in a pop up HOPE Vendo machine which would be announce by HOPE IN THE BOTTLE’s FB Page and Instagram – better hit the follow and like botton.

So the shirts come in 3 designs, One with a PINEAPPLE on the front and the other one is with a CHILD “BATA” and the word “PAG-ASA” meaning HOPE IN 2 versions. The sleeves have custom patches beautifully crafted and beaded. All Solenn’s beautiful sketches brought to life in these fashionable shirts.

Apparently 200 shirts will only be available then if you weren’t able to catch the vendo machine in areas near you. The shirts will also be available at ZALORA.

Intriguing on how the shirts are made but I can’t answer the technicality of it – Globis is the spearhead who is responsible in creating the fabric from bottles. This innovation is first in the Philippines and inspired from NEW YORK FASHION WEEK.

Everytime I wear this shirt it reminds me how this can help build classroom’s around the Philippines. We do have brothers and sisters especially in the remote areas who would dreamed a good education and have better life, Having a degree is definitely important, and the child are the future.

This is definitely FASHION WITH A CAUSE.

OhMyBagPhils X Krishgeek

I am so into bags- being a girl who needs to bring everything, my motto is “It is better to be OVERPACK(ED) than UNDERPACK(ED). It is an essential since I bring everything and I need to be prepared whether it is work, events, going out or travel. I make sure that my bag also matches OOTDs ofcourse.

Then I realized that my bags go through a lot and  it needs the proper care so its a genius that there are “handle wraps” especially my bags are always heavy – ask my friends about it #GIRLSCOUT

@OHMYBAGPHILS provides these handle wraps for bags that are affordable and stylish also, they have patterns in solid colors and loud prints. We know that the handles of our bags (the leather) sloughs off as time goes by or how much you’ve used it. Plus it is an investment for you to pro-long your bag’s so called life expansion (para ma-maintain) and a fabulous accessory.

Tips on placing your handle wraps

  1. Division the wrap(s) in half- so it would be equal
  2. Start wrapping on one side first, tangle the edge part
  3. Do the same with the other half
  4. Adjust if needed

Not only handle warps, they have bag shapers, dust bag, bag stuffer and bag fillers Oh My Bag Ph Branches: Binondo. Glorietta 3, Makati & Malate. Sales Office ☎️399-0219 / Globe 0917-6782247 / Smart 0947-9908757 / Sun 09258642247 www.ohmybag.com.ph

beauty and grooming industry since it was relaunched November of last year.
Aside from launching their new website, the fast growing company is now
expanding by offering another service to their valued customers who love to shop
online.
“Nowadays, people are after convenience. In transportation, we have Uber and
Grab. In communication, Viber, Facebook Messenger, Skype, and other
messaging apps. In online retail, we have a lot of players. Majority are fashion e-
shop, but the beauty category in online retail has not been explored that much
yet. This is where we come in,” says Paul Dimafelix, Founder and Managing
Director of Saladbox.
Starting this Friday, November 11, Saladbox Shop will sell beauty products,
styling accessories, grooming kit essentials for both women and men. Some of

“We are helping people to discover the best beauty, grooming, and lifestyle
products through our subscription sampling service and our online magazine.
Now it’s time to offer them these products inside the website. Since they won’t
leave the website to buy the products we recommend, it makes it easier and
more convenient for them,” Dimafelix said.

SNEAKER BOX MANILA

img_2234

Sneaker Box Manila opens to the public and can be spotted at G/F  The Promenade Mall , Greenhills, San Juan (Below. the cinemas and YES, the newly opened extension). Been the talk of the town because they have shoes that are rare in the market, legit and imported abroad. Name it, they have major shoe brands like Adidas, Nike, Puma and New Balance.

img_2252

Well you can actually pre-order if you desire any shoe like Jordans. I noticed how pinoys are into collecting rare Jordans, sorry If I can’t educate you about the different styles of Jordans. I am more of “porma” and not really been a basketball fan. By just asking the friendly and accommodating staff, I guess they can provide and answer your Jordan inquiries. The prices of their Jordans range from P8k PLUS based on what I saw and remembered hopefully. But yeah, It’s worth the investment for the basketball fans out there.

On my area of interest , I am more of the sporty and style side like what I use in the gym and what screams athleisure – Adidas’ Stan Smith (white shoes fad) Nike, New Balance and Stella McCartney.

img_2248

I am a fan of the designer, Stella McCartney and I love the collection when she had a collaboration with Adidas. Actually, I didn’t know there was a line for Stella McCartney shoes. See, Sneakerboxmanila is updated with the trends.

img_2246img_2261

Yes, Adidas’ Stan Smith designs are available ranging from P7-8 k plus (depending on the model), The Rita Ora’s are not yet available but SOON. I actually have an eye for the gold or rose gold stan smith which I am waiting for. Speaking of Adidas, Sneakerboxmanila was featured on SPOT.PH and known for only having AdidasXStarwars and the glow in the dark ones.
