ARANAZ and Plains & Prints brings a tropical twist to every wardrobe
There’s no doubt that summer is well and truly here. With the warm sun and clear blue skies abound, there’s nothing quite as quintessential to the season than making a beeline to the seaside for a dose of needed rest and relaxation. Though not everyone may have free days to head to an extravagant far-away resort or even the nearest beach, it doesn’t mean you can’t dress with the tropics in mind. Luckily, two proud local brands have brought their expertise in clothing retail and all-year-round island aesthetics for a collection that shouldn’t be missed.
Both coming from humble beginnings, the now leading names of ARANAZ and Plains & Prints have come together to venture into each other’s realms to launch their curated capsule line. Mixing modern and traditional looks, as well as class and practicality, the limited 15-piece selection captures the country’s distinctly laidback and festive aura. Its effortlessly elegant resort-style features eight woven handbags and seven fashion pieces that combine the luxury label’s unique elements such as the iconic flamingo, coconut, and pineapple with the retailer’s signature silhouettes and fabrics that radiate summer sophistication.
Further, the ARANAZ for Plains & Prints collection is also a celebration of Filipino artistry and culture. With 90% of it being locally made, the message it stresses is the appreciation and empowerment of talented local artisanship that can be boosted through the collaborative efforts of creative visionaries as an impactful part of any ensemble, perfectly picturing earthy vacation flair in a timeless craft.
