EsAc S/S 2015 for Philippine Fashion Week

Most people tell us that two heads are better than one. For EsAc, its three that brings the creativity to a whole different level. Three powerhouse designers – Jun Jun Cambe, Lyle Ibanez and Audie Espino have put their touch through a collection under the fashionable label. We have witnessed different stories behind their aesthetics and all of them truly deserves our applause.

Mr. Cambe recalled the life and style of Pia Alba, Maria Clara and Crisostomo Ibarra (characters in Noli Me Tangere) to be the plot of his collaboration with ESAC. The story of the two characters has been summarized on the runway where the white ensembles pertains to the their bountiful living, while the black ones denote the tragedy that they have encountered through the Spanish colonization.

Some designs strayed away from the traditional, having crop-top version of the Baro. The Saya has been recreated into a soft, flowing pants that still maintains the femininity on its movement. An ethnic-printed fabric is mostly paired as bottoms reflecting the native spirit of the early Filipinos.

The Barong tagalog, on the other hand have been layered on another Popsicle colored Barong to give the boys a bright hue of personality. Some remained true to the original Barong but paired in a moving carrot pants slacks.

The raven black Barong looked smart and Papal in nature, while the black dresses came with sheered fabrics, adorned with sparkles and flower embellishments in time for spring.

It seems that the dark thoughts that plague our fashion imagination finally came to existence. The all-black collection screamed the strong dominatrix spirit leaving the sweet-being on the corner. The dresses were simplistically chic and effortless in defining what women really are.

The brand will never be completed without the signature buff male model, walking in red underwear. Renan Assunção from Ideal People Model Management has been chosen to do the strut. And Yes, that minute of cheeky swagger is bloodily sexy, that we could wish it could last forever. To close the show, Ford Supermodel of the World (Philippines) alum, Emerald Villahermosa walked gracefully for the finale wearing a red silk dress, with ornate embroidery and sheer black layering.


Bless the models!
