The highlight of these journals is the illustrations of popular Philippine destinations that inspired one to travel and learn more about our country. The makers of muni shares: “This was brought about by our interest in travel, particularly domestic travel. More than just the help we give to Yabang Pinoy and CEAAF, we're pushing domestic travel. We're encouraging fellow Filipinos not to look so far away for great travel experiences, and for them to explore the many parts of the Philippines aside from designated tourist spots.” Muni travel journals, P795,

In the Bag

Overflowing stocks of new designs and styles are nothing new from the makers of cool flip-flops, Havaianas. But this hip Brazilian footwear brand has something new to offer for this last stretch of 2009. A batch of bright-colored funky bags was launched and presented through a fun fashion show, with thousands of viewers watching it online via live streaming courtesy of Smart Communications. How tech-savvy!

As for the new product line of Havaianas, the brand’s Anne Gonzalez shares: “We always seek to stay fresh, not only by keeping our flip-flop styles up-to-date, but also by introducing new fashion items that will complement them.” This first batch of bags come in six different styles, all of which come in a variety of colors that are the same as the brand’s palette. Each bag shares the same aesthetic look and details as that of their flip-flops. The rice pattern from the soles, the Greek pattern from the straps, and the round rubber buttons used to keep the flip-flops’ soles and straps together are strategically placed and included in these totes and sling bags—giving each bag the Havaianas’ seal of approval.

A big “mega” sling to fit all your essentials.

The “tote” comes with a drawstring lock to keep your goodies safe.

There’s one style for every member of the family.

The “mega printed” will surely be a fave among the ladies for it’s floral print.

The “zip” offers a cool option to carry your skateboard (or yoga mat).

These are great new additions to the family of Havaianas. If you're not yet a fan of the brand (gasp!), I'm sure these bags will make you one ;)

Gift of Art

“I am not good at speaking. At school, when the teacher asked me to recite, I could not say anything. When I was asked to write a long compostion, I would only give a few sentences and the teacher didn’t like that. But in my painting, I feel free. I can express what I want to say,” shares National Artist for Visual Arts Ang Kiukok. Now, you can express yourself, fashion-wise, with a helping of the artist’s magical masterpieces, too!

The second installment of their National Artist Collector’s series, Ang Kiu Kok is the fashion retail brand’s featured artist, whose art is now immortalized in limited edition items such as tees, woven tops, dresses and even men’s graphic shirts. Accessories such as bags, jewelry and a watch are new additions to these special collaborations.

Best of all, all Ang Kiukok items come in their own gift packaging, just in time for the holiday season. Part of the proceeds will go to the Ang family’s charity of choice: the Dominican Sisters of Regina Rosarii.

This limited collection was launched with a fashion show held at The Row, Glorietta 5:

Most famous for his cubism style, this “Fishermen with Catch”
sublimination tee (P995) is sure to be a bestseller as well.

This black high-waist mini (P1,295) has his illustration of “Screams.”

Men, rejoice! Graphic shirts are also available for you. In photo: “Angry Figure” tee, P995.

Ang Kiukok uses clowns a lot in his art works. “Seated Clown” tiered dress, P1,895.
