Local Prints and Florals

Vania Romoff’s Latest Collab Is a Celebration of Femininity via Local Prints and Florals

Filipino designer Vania Romoff collaborated with Plains & Prints for another capsule collection. Known for her romantic and feminine designs, the brand reached out to Vania to inject her style onto the collection.

“After working with so many designers in the past, we wanted a different approach,” said Roxanne Farillas, vice-president of Plains & Prints. “Vania’s known for her femininity. It’s still a mix of Plains & Prints, but you’ll still see her style in the collection. You’ll really see her personality in it.”

The 12-piece collection features functional clothing for the everyday woman. When we got a first look of the collab, I saw romantic blouses, airy day dresses, lightweight trousers, and vibrant pieces inspired by local influences. It was like seeing our version of springtime, especially with the floral prints. Even those who aren’t into feminine pieces might be drawn to them.

When asked how it’s different from her previous capsule collection with Plains & Prints, Vania said the designs are pulled from local influences.

“[I was] inspired by local flora and art work. There are also batik and ikat prints, and the bougainvillea is also evident in a lot of the pieces,” Vania explained. “A lot of it has a happy vibe. It’s very relaxed, wearable, and fun. It’s a very lighthearted collection.” And, as Roxanne said, you’ll see Vania’s penchant for dainty ribbons and delicate embellishments, and a hint of drama with how the fabric moves.

“The general feel of my collection is always feminine. I like to do a lot of skirts and flounces, always accentuating the waistline,” Vania said. “I don’t make dresses that are too avant-garde, they’re made for every type of woman. They’re not too sexy and not too complicated.”

The Plains & Prints x Vania Romoff collection will launch in select stores and online (their website, Zalora PH, and Amazon US) starting July 6. It’ll be available nationwide on July 15.

Ellery’s First Jewellery Line is Turning Heads

Ellery’s First Jewellery Line is Turning Heads

Being at the top of Australian fashion is one thing. Launching a jewellery line in a competitive market is another. Kym Ellery has pulled it off, foraying into accessories for her pre-fall, ready-to-wear 2017 collection.

Ellery has experienced rapid global growth, from delivering its latest collection to Hong Kong’s Lane Crawford, to securing Matches, Net-a-Porter, MyTheresa, Browns, Selfridges, L’Éclaireur, Dover Street Market (both London and New York), Maxfield and more.

The collection walks the line between form and function with accessories that are easy to layer; with the same architectural shapes as Ellery’s clothing. The pieces are inspired by Nina Simone’s big band; jewels that almost resemble brass instruments such as trumpets, saxophones and horns.

The jewellery is done in plated gold and silver, alongside mottled resins in nude, blood red and burnt orange. Pair gold tasselled earrings with one of her bell-sleeve blouses, or her sharply cut flares and you’re channelling the ’70s to big effect. Chunky hoops come in tortoise-shell and fasten in silver, alongside chokers adorned with a pearl (which would go well with any of her pearl-encrusted coats). There are spiral-coil earrings, chandelier chokers (reminiscent of the fringed coats) and simple coil rings, which are the perfect wink on the hand. Invest in jewels to brighten up your wardrobe this winter.

The jewellery collection is available to buy in Ellery stores and online.
