As the holidays are here, so are all the designers’ special holiday collections for us to wear for the most wonderful time of the year.
‘Tis the season to be jolly, merry, and festive. If there’s truly one very important holiday for Filipinos, it has to be Christmas. Apart from the spirit of giving, we love gathering and being reunited with our loved ones. And as we all get-together with our family and friends, of course, we always make it a point to look the best for ourselves, but also, to hold off any unnecessary snide remarks from relatives.
So, as we’re now all probably planning our intimate Noche Buenas and Media Noches, we took the liberty of looking for the best designer holiday collections for all the MEGA women to wear. Whether you want a power suit, feminine feathered ensemble, or even a modern Filipiniana, these designers have the perfect pieces for a happy Christmas.
If there’s someone who truly knows how to party in true style a la Parisienne, it’s going to be Chris Nick. This holiday season, the young designer takes inspiration from the ultimate wardrobe staple yet again—the classic tuxedo. Merging masculine and feminine elements, his work exudes an impeccable charisma and distinct character for whoever wears his pieces. But the best part about these is it’s a selection that you can effortlessly mix and match with your other evening wear.
Debbie Co is a known couturier in the local fashion scene. She has always created countless breathtaking pieces that many celebrities and high society personalities have worn. Whether it’s for a special occasion or simply for a casual run of daily errands, women who wear her creations know that a true style purveyor never sacrifices committing a fashion faux pas. So, in her latest collection, she channeled the authentic beauty of femininity through florals. Upon scanning through her holiday collection, we are invited to her garden of creativity with several dresses adorned with floral prints and appliqués.
Self-care has been the ultimate mood of this year. We’ve all started prioritizing and acquiring anything, especially clothes, wherein we can be comfortable as we continue to stay at home. In this light, we noticed that Vania Romoff‘s holiday offerings have wonderfully achieved the right balance of a laidback mood, but still have those subtle statement-making elements in each piece—from huge bows to puffed sleeves.
In case your family is planning on celebrating the holidays in true Pinoy spirit, then Mark Bumgarner‘s collection would be your best bet. While we normally see Mark’s creations to be voluminous and intricately embellished, it’s such a fresh sight to witness the designer’s take on creating modern ternos in a form of trench coats and jackets. But apart from these ones, of course, sparkling fits can’t be forgotten. So, he also created colorful glittering tops accentuated with statement shoulders for the festivities.
Patty Ang has been making rounds in the global fashion scene. Slowly and surely, she has started to garb international personalities such as Chrissy Teigan and Vanessa Lachey, to name a few. So, if you want to exude the same aura as that of these notable stars, then Patty Ang’s F/W 2020 collection can definitely give you just that. Since her trademark designs mostly incorporate the use of the ever-chic ostrich feathers, pieces like that can’t be missing in the collection. But apart from that, we truly love how she played with the sheer fabrics and created small puffy balls as a perfect accent for the coming fêtes.
