Wing it 'til you make it with the new STABILO x Sephora Collection - metroscene mag

If you’re going to ask any college student about their back to school must have, we guarantee that STABILO highlighters will make the list. Admit it or not, but those series of colorful highlighters do, well, almost anything.

Hell, you might have even thought of using it as an eye liner because its tips, were too perfect to draw wing eyeliner!

Well, get ready to satisfy your curiosity! STABILO highlighter and Sephora have teamed up to create a new beauty line that will bring you back to your college sleepless nights— less the stress, guaranteed.

Sephora x STABILO Felt tip Eyeliner is perfect for everyday makeup or a night out party with your friends! (or use it while studying, we wont judge.)



This collaboration puts its “dual line” capacities to the test with its intuitive applicator nib: create thin or thick lines, or even the most perfect winged liners!

The Felt tip Eyeliner collection has a variety of 4 intense and pigmented colors you can choose—the Ink Splash (black), Back-to-School (grey), Chocolate Break (dark brown) , and Summer Holiday(dark blue shade).

As of writing, Sephora x STABILO Collaboration is not yet available in the country but the felt eyeliner is priced at 15 Singaporean dollars, which is approximately P538. We can’t wait to have these babies !

This Clothing Brand is changing the world, one ‘katcha’ at a time!

Tuesday, June 9, 2020



Thinking of going green (and every color in between) with your closet? Craftcha has got the goods: bags, shorts, pants, dusters, all made from eco-friendly ‘katcha’!

Craftcha is a micro-business enterprise that offers handcrafted products made from repurposed and upcycled materials. Some of their products include bed covers, kitchen towels, apron, foot rug, kitchen appliances cover, and gift packaging all made with sustainability in mind-- and quality, too!

“We started out as a small-time family business back in 2009. We were one of those who experienced the impact of Typhoon Ondoy in Metro Manila. Our experience inspired us to put up a business that advocates cloth waste management in minimizing plastic bag use.” says Ms. Merlita Manicad, founder of Craftcha in an interview with Metroscene Mag.





From 500 pesos as starting capital, Ms. Manicad started her business without knowing when or where it will take her. "Masipag, matiyaga, madiskarte, maparaan, praktikal, and creative" are the most often commendations of her customers to her brand.

Fashion but make it sustainable


Craftcha innovates and creates useful household goods not just made of flour sacks but also from scrap cloth, old clothes, old jeans, outdated clothing, and even from rice sacks as their new products.



“Given our story on how we started, as well as our goals, it is purpose-driven. Kakayanan natin na makapag inspire pa ng ibang mga tao at maniwala sila na madaming magagawa sa mga basurang tela. Sa tuwing nagbibigay suporta ang mga costumers natin sa mga little efforts ng brand sa pag lessen ng basura, at paniniwala sa mga nagagawa naming products. These are the little gestures and small deeds na nagke-create ng long term impact, that keep us going.” she added.

For more than a decade of crafting, the company have already contributed a lot in terms of sustainable living, taking pride in their slogan: “Craftcha – 99% upcycled goods, handcrafted for the love of nature.”

Fashion trends from the '90s that are back in 2020

Friday, March 20, 2020

           


     Fashion trends, they come and go no matter how hot they are at the time. Some things, like fashion, can get stale or feel normal at some point that people simply get tired of looking at it. That’s just how it works.

     Despite discovering new trends this year such as biker shorts and neon bodysuits,  we can say that 2019 is a year full of fashion comebacks. From dad shoes to fanny packs. Brace yourself for a fashionable trip down the memory lane. In this article, we listed trends that are coming back into style and find out how to style the pieces for yourself.

BUCKET HATS

         This trend has been in and out of the fashion radar in the last few years but this year? YES, The bucket hats are definitely cool again. Whenever a bucket hat is mentioned, I think of the 90's. This 90s accessory made a major comeback on the runway and appeared in many designers’ collections this year, including Prada’s Knit Logo Bucket Hat and even Fenty x Puma’s Strapped Bucket Hats.

PLAID

  The iconic early 90s pattern is making a comeback in striking plaids. This time, muted and minimalist tones of earth colors are being replaced by various loud colors and fun prints. This staple goes perfectly with a white tee, a good pair of jeans and Timberland boots. This checkered print is a must-have in your checklist.

DENIM JACKETS

     A denim jacket has become a closet staple as much as a white shirt. Back with bolder and bigger designs,  you can now get this iconic piece in different patterns such as graffiti prints and even a side stripe design. This throwback trend is yet another thing that proves ’90s fashion is back and sweeping us all in your feet.

FANNY PACKS



     Give it up for the triumphant return of the fanny pack. Who would’ve thought that this iconic bag from our childhood will come back as a fashion statement? Being strategically rebranded as "belt bags" for today's shoppers, this one iconic bag is now available in different forms. — one for every kind of style and personality.

The Rebirth Of Hawaiian Button-Downs




Fashion is a weird place. It is a place of extreme confusion. Think about it. Everything’s always in between the thin line of being stylish, then not chic, then suddenly stylish again. In the past few years, we've seen the return of some street style trends that we thought would never make a comeback!

We're not sure how it happened, but the fashion industry takes deep inspiration from the weirdest and ordinary parts of life. And floral print shirts worn by dads on vacation is not an exception. The Hawaiian shirt also called Aloha shirt, had more resurgences than any other trend that there was. With that, Here are new ways you can style your old man's shirt.

Hawaiian Shirt & Bolder Prints

You can wear an Aloha shirt with a solid non-neutral color, but sometimes Bigger is Better. Large prints have been an a-not-so-stylish idea for a long time. That's because many people think it's too much to look at but this time? It's everything! Go for bolder prints and avoid the tiring palm trees and beach prints. You are not your dad.

Hawaiian Shirt & White Tee

You can never go wrong with a white tee. It’s one of the easiest ways to style up or down a look. Luckily, the Hawaiian Shirt &  white tee fits so much that it looks good with each other. If you are pulling off a boy-next-door look, this one is for you. Be cooler than weather by wearing it with denim pants and your favorite classic converse.

Hawaiian Shirt & Shorts

If you want to be stylish and comfortable at the same time. This pair is for you. Solid colors such as tan, khaki, white, navy, olive, and off-white are the go-to colors for the shorts to balance out the Hawaiian Shirt. If you are bold enough, try to leave the first button from the top open to reveal some chest.

Hawaiian Shirt & Khakis

Khakis can be a little tricky when you mix it up with anything because it dresses up everything. Hawaiian Shirt and Trouser work together if you are pulling off a smart casual look. It’s best to wear your shirt untucked to give it a laid back and chill presence, especially if your shirt has big prints.

Hawaiian Shirt & Biker Shorts

You might think no way this would work, but there’s nothing impossible now. Especially in fashion. If you are looking for a way to give the old Hawaiian Shirt get up a twist, Biker Shorts is the key! Hawaiian Shirt & Biker Shorts are both versatile pieces so coming up with a great look is not a shocker. In order not to look overdone, go for a more chill color and laid back pattern for this get-up.
