Filipino label Jail Jeans went rock and roll, sending down the runway models in black leather and diamante lips (doesn’t work for me!). The show had a dramatic start with the first model undressing and transforming a jacket into some sort of combat shorts. After that it was all glitters and hard core leather, low cut jeans, zip details a plenty, diamante patterns. Nothing easily wearable.
Filipino designer Jerome Lorico was more pragmatic in his design approach, thought many of his black knitwear were forward looking. Model wore sweaters with complicated ribbed-pattern like armors, long shawls with fringes. Some looked like a Madonna with the black shawl over their head. It was all dramatic but without the over the top styling, and many pieces could be worn with panache. The designer also tried to gave his twist on the trouser by adding flapping wings along the length of the leg. Brought to mind some weird amphibians and didn’t quite work .
