SHEER SPLENDOR

Designers are acknowledging the heat of summer with a whole lot of sheer! See-through dresses came strutting down the catwalk paired with nothing but the sexiest (and for some the sparkly-est) bodysuits beneath. Louis Claparols had a cool neon swimsuit beneath his lemon, ‘50s-style frock while Lyle Ibanez kept it nude under a printed shirt dress.underneath, Anthony Ramirez embellished his pieces, drawing attention to the gowns before the innerwear. The look shows just the right amount of skin while covering everything that needs to be covered. We say it’s a great way to live it up on balmy nights at the beach.

COLOR BY COLOR

There's no stopping color blocking; this trend has stayed strong since summer 2011, reappearing in the collections for 2012. The combinations are no longer just in acid brights. We spot pastel pairings at Gerry Katigbak that look clean and fresh, while Kashieca played with classic silhouettes and deeper shades. It’s an ultra fun trend and we’re glad for the chance to keep at it!

HIGH SHINE

The no-fail trend when it comes to looking all glammed up for any occasion, high shine definitely puts the spotlight on you! From luxurious golds like those at Martin Bautista and Jerome Salaya Ang to solid black like Norman Noriega—we’re all for turning up that glow!

THE MULLET

A cross between the mini and the maxi, this hybrid shows just the right amount of leg and gives way to that fresh summer breeze! Bench’s young school girl grows up as her pleated skirt is given a train while designers like Pablo Cabahug, Bo Parcon, Roland Alzate and Russell Villafuerte showed variations of the looks dressier side.

SOPHISTICATED SWIMMIES

Swimsuits have come a long way from just being what you wear to go in the water, especially for the ladies who prefer to sizzle in the shade. Now they work just as well as an outfit to, say, lounge by not in the pool or perhaps late night parties by the beach. Chris Diaz, Gerry Katigbak, Ricky Abad, Louis Claparols and Noel Crisostomo designed pieces that are sure to make you feel so sexy! Get ready to rock these babies through summer!

EARNED STRIPES

Stripes somehow call to mind ideas of sailing and being by the sea. With visions of being beach bound for the summer months, striped maxi dresses and even skirts seem to make the perfect wardrobe. Kashieca, Arnold Galang, Penshoppe and Kashieca all used solid blacks with pops of bright color while Gerry Katigbak’s pieces came in cool shades of blue!
