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.
