ENSEMBLES brings you the Louis Claparols Collection

After the successful Debbie Co Collection Series last year from ENSEMBLES, this well known brand brings in another talented designer to amaze us with wonderful designs this year. Manila Reviews is a firm believer in the talent of the Filipinos. The designer of this new collection is a Filipino, Louis Claparols, who we should all be proud of. The designs for this Ensembles Louis Claparols collection was taken from the different things that inspired the well-known designer, from graphic art to architecture to movies. This is definitely a Holiday Collection that you will love!

Ensembles by Louis Claparols

Ensembles by Louis Claparols

Claparols Holiday 2010 Collection for Ensembles consists of very art-deco dresses, tops, skirts, boleros and trench coats. When asked about the design, the well-known designer mentioned “I played with a lot of lines and shapes & cutout prints to make it really graphic & playful”. While looking through the pieces, I love the the lively and the vibrant colors that give that distinct retro-feel. I love especially the dress that Carmina Villarroel, the endorser of Ensembles is wearing in the photo above. The new Ensembles collection made by Louis Claparols is elegantly made, and all of the pieces are quite standouts in their own way.

This is my favorite piece. Working in bank does not give me the freedom to wear vibrant colors, but this piece, even if it is in black and white will definitely catch attention.

    I'd like to give my Ate Abi the Blue Short Sleeve Dress with Diamond Details. She's a preschool teacher and they always wear shirts for uniforms.. they do have school events though where they don on something else and I'd love to give her the blue dress(her favorite color) so she could wear something fun but still stylish once in a while. I bet her kids will adore her when she wears it to school..
