Cotton On Opens at SM Mall of Asia

image

When I heard news that Cotton On was opening in Manila, I was ecstatic. I used to “panic-buy” (or hoard) its trendy merchandise whenever I was at Hong Kong and Malaysia (as I’m sure most of you did too). I would stock up on its super cute button-down shirts, dresses, blazers, skirts and skinny jeans and happily find that I could easily mix and match these items with my wardrobe. These really gave my clothes extra mileage, so I can continue wearing my favorites and not seem like I’ve worn them too many times. The brand’s style is effortless and wearable, but what I like most about it that it fits really well.

So the opening was a couple of weeks ago at SM Mall of Asia (I know, major lag on my part) and I have to say, it was so worth the trip! Not only was I able to watch a fun and energized fashion show (no really, at one point models broke out into dance), I was able to get first dibs on the cutest clothes, shoes and accessories.

Welcome to Manila, Cotton On!

Fresh crop of models. These young and good-looking bunch were chosen by fashion bloggers Laureen Uy, Camille Co and Patricia Prieto out of countless applicants.

So cute. Mixing up brights with prints.

Citrus hues vs. shades of blues.

I was also eyeing this sequined skirt (oop, Ben Chan was right in front of me at the show).

I love how the clothes were put together: so effortless and chic.

This model really stood out for me. She reminds me of actress Angel Locsin.
