Known for his classic feminine looks, as well as dressing local and international stars like Heart Evangelista-Escudero and Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar, top Filipino fashion designer, Mark Bumgarner, launches his first collaboration with Plains and Prints.
In this 13-piece designer and retail collaboration, Bumgarner pays homage to local flora. He incorporated the Filipino Anahaw and local Waling-Waling in all the designs and here are the top 5 looks that you need to buy now:
1. Viktoria Tube Top + Ella Pants
The Viktoria tube top paired with the Ella pants is a great start when reinvigorating your closet. This look can take you from a business lunch to a dinner date with ease because is considers workplace appropriateness while keeping you effortlessly chic any time of the day.
2. Olivya Dress
We have seen a lot of floral dresses, but what makes the Olivya dress stand out is its painterly finish of red orchids and tropical leaves done on a classic cold shoulder dress. The solid dark front panel is also a great break from the usual printed garment.
3. Larra LS Top + Andreia Skirt
We love leaf prints paired on light fabrics and this is why the Larra LS top is a must-have. This garment shows just the right amount of skin and remains feminine through Bumgarner’s signature ribbon styled with a gold metal tip. It is paired with the Andreia skirt that is rendered in the Anahaw leaf print.
4. Larra LS Top + Clarisse Skirt
If you prefer pristine looks, the Larra LS Top is ideal. Bumgarner creates an elegant top with modern detailing, his classic bow and paired with the A-line Clarrisse skirt done in the collection’s theme of Filipino inspired prints.
5. Tammara SL Dress
For a simple, laid-back but modern outfit, the Tammara SL Dress gets top marks. The white flowy deep-v neckline with ruffle detailing is a ladylike option that will never go out of style.
