Freeway has made some amazing collaborations with national artists in the past, including Manansala and Levi Celerio. Well, this fall 2013, Freeway launches yet another National Artist Collector's Series along with Lucio San Pedro's Birth Centennial.
Lucio San Pedro is yet another Filipino full of talent and ingenuity. A National Artist for Music, he is a great Filipino composer and teacher, most well-known for his lullaby "Sa Ugoy ng Duyan" and his poem "Lahing Kayumanggi".
The tribute event was held last month in The Row in Glorietta with his music playing in the background and the night simply filled with nationalistic grandeur. Here, the following collection was unveiled with designs complementing Lucio San Pedro's musical aesthetics:
As you can see, the collection is composed of casual to work tops and dresses using fabrics like satin twills, poplins, knits and matte charmeuse.
The unique cuts and styles are carefully crafted to flatte female figures without sacrificing comfort at the same time. The collection also combines floral inspirations with hand-drawn lines and curves fused with lyrics and titles of San Pedro's famous orchestra pieces.
I am absolutely loving the basic black and white colors used for the collection because the colors are so classic that the clothes instantly become classic, too. Plus, they perfectly capture the mark and essence of every Filipina's modern beauty.
