0917 Introduces the “0917 Hello World” Collection

Expressing yourself in an era with a dose of nostalgia is what the kids consider hip nowadays-  it’s that cool, fun, and quirky style. Gen Z’s has their take but I believe the originals (OGs) got it better since they are the pillars of the trend.

The 0917 Hello world collection, according to the site –  This lineup features retro-inspired apparel, accessories, and gadgets you can easily integrate into your everyday lifestyle.

My personal take is I love that you can style your look with a gadget. The luna wireless earphones are what the Gen Z say nowadays call “It’s giving” (something to compare that gives off a vibe, Definitely it does bring that “aesthetic vibe” too  and the modern take of the stella wireless speakers with a touch of retro. From this collection, I would style the oversize tees (which I’ve been into lately) and a classic staple that gives off cool vibes -the varsity jacket.

Introducing the 0917 Hello World Collection:

In a move that underscores its commitment to bridging the online and offline worlds, 0917 Lifestyle unveils its latest collection, “0917 Hello World.” This announcement not only introduces a fresh line of apparel and gadget accessories but also heralds a visual re-brand, a testament to its evolving identity and dedication to its manifesto.

In addition, it introduces retro-themed gadget accessories such as earphones, speakers, headphones, and powerbanks designed to resonate with the brand’s target audience, offering both style and functionality.

 Need to Boost Your Skin Hydration Routine? 

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum and Water Gel are your two-step solution to healthy, hydrated skin!

Looks like it’s going to rain today! Oh wait, the sun’s back up. Mixed signals from the weatherman? We totally get you. The constant changes between hot and rainy weather in the Philippines dictates more than just your outfit (sweater weather? Or summer chic?) and the route you take to work. Like you, your skin takes a toll and constantly tries to compensate for the confusion. 

Philippine weather can cause skin dehydration. Humidity can also cause a lot of sweat, which combined with insufficient water intake, makes your skin barrier dry out and weaken. This is worsened by pollution, lack of sleep, smoking, alcohol, and caffeine intake—and this is a lot for our skin to handle. Our bodies need water, in the same way that our skin needs hydration. Without it, signs of skin dehydration begin to show.

Dehydration is a skin condition that one can experience regardless of skin type and is caused by the lack of water and moisture in our bodies, making the skin feel tight or appear dull and lifeless. Allowing your skin to get dehydrated is like a fast lane to skin aging. It manifests through dry, itchy, uneven skin. Under-eye circles and more noticeable fine lines also begin to appear. 

That is why hydration is key! Like a glass of water on a hot day, it is essential to consistently quench our skin’s thirst, ensuring skin hydration. Well-hydrated skin looks healthier and more glowing.

“For years, Neutrogena has been committed to delivering skin solutions through science-backed products. And in line with our company values, we continuously collaborate with scientists and dermatologists to learn more about how to achieve healthy skin. We use this knowledge to bring skincare solutions closer to everyone—through Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost line,” says Macy Agoncillo, brand manager for Neutrogena, Kenvue Philippines.


Luckily, Neutrogena offers a simple 2-step hydrating regimen perfect for people who want to achieve hydrated, healthy glass skin. Introducing Neutrogena’s hydrating duo: the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum and the Hydro Boost Water Gel—both containing an essential, crowd-favorite ingredient, hyaluronic acid.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum and the Hydro Boost Water Gel’s main ingredient, hyaluronic acid, helps increase the moisture content in the skin, which can have various skin benefits, such as reducing the appearance of fine lines and dullness, among others. So, if you’re a beginner or are still looking for the perfect skincare routine to hydrate your skin, Neutrogena’s got you with these two easy steps:

  • Step 1: Apply the Hydro Boost Serum. This fragrance-free serum instantly replenishes and smooths dry skin by infusing a lightweight hydration deep within the skin.
  • Step 2: Top the serum off with the Hydro Boost Water Gel. This water gel helps in strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier for a long-lasting healthy look each day. 


Whether you’re a skincare guru or have just started to invest in skincare, Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost duo can help achieve that healthy glass skin look in just 2 steps. Lifestyle vlogger and avid Neutrogena user Jen Barangan has vouched for Hydro Boost many times when showcasing her skincare routine. She shared, “The Philippines can be very humid and hot, which is why I prefer a lightweight product like Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel. My skin feels so hydrated and so healthy, and ever since I started using it, my friends tell me that I look fresh as ever!”

Neutrogena’s research and development scientist, Diyana Sudarsono, explained “Using Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Serum together with the Hydro Boost Water Gel is recommended for those who want to achieve hydrated and healthy skin. The products’ hydrating properties allow the skin to absorb more moisture while reducing skin dryness, thanks to the hyaluronic acid content.”

Start replenishing your dehydrated skin with Neutrogena’s most concentrated hydrating duo yet, the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum and Hydro Boost Water Gel with 2.9x more hydrating ingredients. Get that healthy glass skin look in just two steps. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum and Hydro Boost Water Gel are available in Watsons and in our official company stores on Shopee and Lazada.

With the goal of igniting Filipinos’ love for reading, Big Bad Wolf Sale received full support from the Office of the City Mayor to further its initiative of promoting reading culture among Ilonggos and across Western Visayas. 

“As a book lover and reader, I welcome the world’s biggest book sale by Big Bad Wolf Books in Iloilo City. I had the love of reading books when I was in elementary. I enjoyed reading Greek mythology, the Hardy Boys, and the likes. Reading helped me when I was in college and College of Law.

This time around, they chose Gawad Kalinga and The Sister School of Mary – Boystown in Minglanilla, Cebu as the beneficiaries of this CSR program. Big Bad Wolf Books will pledge 1,000 books which will go towards the GK Traveling Maleta Library, a program by Gawad Kalinga that, similar to Big Bad Wolf Books’ mission, aims to provide literary works and promote reading to less fortunate communities by lending a suitcase full of books for 1 month before transferring it to another community who needs it. 

“At Big Bad Wolf, we’ve always believed that books have the power to transform lives, open doors to opportunity, and spark imagination. It’s not just about selling books; it’s about making a lasting impact in the communities we touch. Our partnership with Gawad Kalinga aligns perfectly with our vision of using literature as a force for good. Gawad Kalinga’s commitment to uplifting underprivileged communities resonates deeply with us. Through our partnerships, we have the privilege of contributing to the communities that support us. This time, we also want to extend this noble mission by providing books to The Sister School of Mary – Boystown. This gesture is not just about giving them access to books; it’s about providing the tools for knowledge, personal growth, and hope,” said Andrew Yap, co-founder of Big Bad Wolf Books. 

In a world where access to education is key, Big Bad Wolf Books recognizes the pivotal role books play in shaping young minds. Guests can support the Red Readerhood program by purchasing books for donation at the Red Readerhood counter during the three-week long Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Cebu 2023.

Social Enterprises as Partners in Green Living

In this rapidly changing world, it’s not enough to simply showcase attractive, trendy, and functional products. 

Kultura is proud to be among those consciously promoting more sustainable, meaningfully-crafted and locally- sourced merchandise for green living. With a loyal following and many branches across the country, Kultura takes their mission to building a greener Philippines seriously. 

Kultura President Ivy Yap expounds, “Retailers can influence customer purchasing decisions depending on our product offerings, pricing strategies and promotions—from product displays to discounts and loyalty programs. Using this influence for good, Kultura helps consumers adopt greener lifestyles by offering a wide selection of products that are made from natural materials that are biodegradable, upcycled or repurposed, aside from being locally sourced.”

Today, the Kultura store is stocked to the brim with Green Finds that make it easier for customers to lead a sustainable lifestyle.

Platform with a Purpose

Kultura, an SM Retail Affiliate, has been key to advocating Green Finds– products that are sustainably sourced and support local communities.

SM through Kultura, has become a Platform for the growth of MSMEs. Millie Monday and Haspe are two Filipino retail brands that have been engaged with Kultura and grateful for how Kultura has been an effective incubator for their respective enterprises.

Mariel Ching of Millie Monday relates how this division of their Primex printing company was named after their mother, and how it specializes in merging art and print technology to create functional paper-related products and accessories for the home. “It was borne out of the pandemic as regular printing jobs vanished, and the family had to find ways to diversify our output, and keep our personnel and machines occupied.”

Today, Millie Monday has expanded its product lines, to include other non-paper products. Thanks to Kultura, Mariel was happy to report that bulk orders, and outright purchases from foreign countries like Singapore and Tokyo, have transpired. Their collaborations with established artists produce collections that are very well-received, and they credit Kultura for helping create awareness and goodwill for their brand.

On the sustainability features of the Millie Monday brand, Mariel spoke about their sustainably sourced paper, and soy-based ink, as well as their Heidelberg offset machine, acquired with a proviso that involved planting trees in Africa. “We are the only Asian printer given the Green Leaf Award by Kodak in 2019. We don’t print on tarp, as it isn’t biodegradable.”

Haspe is the Spanish/Filipino word for wood grain, and it’s a clue to the world of Baliwag, Bulacan native Arch. Eric Gonzales, who designs and creates the wonderful wood-based products and accessories that have caught the eye of shoppers that frequent CITEM, FAME and ArteFino fairs. “Our ‘sungka’, and chess board, made of mahogany wood and solihiya (rataan weaving), are among our signature products”. 

As Haspe has no Metro Manila showroom, Eric credits Kultura for being invaluable in terms of brand awareness. “We started off in 2016 with big traditional furniture pieces, and was inspired in 2019 to make use of the excess wood, and design smaller pieces.” He expanded to incorporate rattan, bone inlay, and other locally sourced materials. The wood he uses are sustainably farmed in Mindanao.

Sustainability comes easy to Haspe as the products are a form of up-cycling, since the wood utilized to create these products come from ‘retasos’, or leftover materials, that would have been thrown away. Haspe’s products have become the pride of Baliwag, Bulacan.

For both Millie Monday and Haspe, the sustainable aspects of how they operate their businesses are givens, as they acknowledge the need for being more responsible entrepreneurs. 

While they’ve been involved with Kultura for less than a year, they both credit their engagement with Kultura as godsends, and are pleased to be placed under the umbrella of Green Finds. 

Being sustainable and green conscious is a collective effort, from the manufacturers and the retailers, all the way to the consumers; and SM is happy to be driving the education, awareness and marketing of this new consciousness.

“By educating customers about the importance of sustainability and providing easy access to mindfully-crafted merchandise, we aim to promote changes in our customers’ behaviors and move them to lead more eco-conscious lifestyles. We hope our efforts inspire other businesses and lead to the adoption of more eco-friendly practices in the retail industry, and ultimately contribute to a more sustainable future for the country,” says Yap.

Max Mara Spring-Summer 2023 Collection: THE BLUE HORIZON

Able to personally witness the Max Mara Spring-Summer 2023 Collection was an experience! I even got the chance to meet in person one of the countries known fashion editor. Just to share,  I attended her virtual class at School of Fashion (SOFA) – A fashion girl’s dreams!

I personally feel that “quiet luxury” is 2023’s mood. Max Mara definitely fits the mold but has always been known to be subtle and bring such elegance. Owning a Max Mara piece screams timeless for me. Growing up I loved and adored Max Mara’s trench coats. Before quiet luxury became a trend, Max Mara has already been doing it ever since.

This 2023 summer collection collection, is all about the French Riviera that started on the sunny beaches of the 1920s. Inspiration came from timeless muses and icons like Renée Perle and Eileen Gray. The collection brings a timeless look and still has that modern feel.

From April to September, when the aristocrats closed their grand villas, bohemians of every type flocked to the Riviera. Things were bound to happen when the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Picasso and Stravinsky rubbed shoulders. But when Zelda Fitzgerald, Dora Maar and Bronislava Nijinska, not to mention Dorothy Parker, Joséphine Baker and Isadora Duncan joined in, women were certain to make the leap from muse to maestro.

On sun-soaked beaches, masterpieces were conceived, manifestos thrashed out and a timeless look was forged: Riviera style. No one wore it better than Renée Perle. Classified in the history books as the silent muse and lover of photographer Jacques-Henri Lartigue, she features in his most memorable pictures. She deserves a bigger credit; the kohl-rimmed eyes, the perfectly painted Cupid’s bow, the finger waved hair are so intrinsically her. So too the archetypal looks which are the backbone of Max Mara’s collection; backless tanks, voluminous canvas sailor pants, floppy wide-brimmed sun hats and long, languid skirts which hug the hip then slide into pools of godets. She painted hundreds of naïf self-portraits. They were dismissed as daubs by the art historians but arguably they point to a remarkable creative talent; her oeuvre was her image.

As Renée Perle personifies the fashion, so Eileen Gray personifies the architecture. At Roquebrune-Cap-Martin Gray built E1027, a seaside villa for herself and her lover, showcasing her uniquely feminine take on modernism. “The poverty of modern architecture stems from the atrophy of sensuality”, she said. Challenging the rigid rectilinearity of the masculine masters, Gray’s floorplan incorporates the occasional curve. Max Mara follows suit with sinuous bias cutting and the brave new femininity also manifests itself in extravagant organza bows printed with flowers in Perlesque `art vernaculaire‘ style.

E1027 has a hint of the handmade, a reminder that this is a home for a woman and a man, not a machine. At Max Mara each piece is designed not just to be worn, but to be lived in. To wit, Max Mara presents a series of total looks in lino greggio – unprocessed, undyed linen that looks like burlap, sometimes with raw fringed hems. And Max Mara’s classic architectonic coats take on the soft allure of sun-bleached beach robes. Gray’s `architecture for inner life’ features accents in a particular shade of inky Mediterranean blue that stirs the heart; Max Mara presents its take on washed cotton drill bleu de travail in the same evocative colour.

They were assiduous chroniclers, those habitués of the Riviera. But apart from the photographs, Perle is voiceless and unrecorded. Did she and Eileen Gray ever meet? Max Mara imagines that they did; two women with a shared vision of modernity stepping out onto the E1027 terrace. Blinking in the morning light, we see them raise their smiling faces to meet the glittering blue horizon.
