It’s no secret that we are obsessed with Manila. In late 2012 we shot one of our most downloaded lookbooks here, IMELDA 13, in conjunction with the GOLD DOT Team, and under the watchful eye and help from Paul of team OS Accessories. Add in our obsession with our Manila bestie and style-guru Karl of INKARLCERATING, and I think you can understand why we have chosen to return to the Philipines. We just spent 48 rapid hours in Manila, meeting with the brands we stock from here, but also taking a full day to shoot our new men’s lookbook, MANILA MUSCLE which highlights authentic Manila Street style, shot on location around the bustling city. The lookbook will go live in June, and will be used to introduce new Manila based collection, MONSTER SHOES, and will also highlight our most editorial summer favorites from the Men’s Buying Dept. Can you handle all this? Below are some quick BTS pics that detail our 48 hours with our friends, in a city we love to visit. Thank you Manila! Photos via Joseph Pascual. Stay tuned for the entire lookbook and video to go live later this month.
