Give the gift of Wearable ART, in store and online!

by Freeway, 2012
Arte Pilipino

Started your Christmas shopping already?  If you’re looking for unique gifts for your artsy friends and loved ones, or even for yourself, then you’re in luck because crossing names off your holiday shopping list just got way easier.

Local fashion brands Freeway, Ensembles and Solo put their most loved special collections – Freeway’s National Artist Collectors’ Series, Ensembles’ Young Designer Series and Solo’s Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series under one roof.  The latest retail store venture is called ARTE PILIPINO, a pop-up museum concept store located in Rockwell (former Hobbes and Landes)  and Greenbelt 5 (in front of Toys ‘R US).  ARTE PILIPINO blurs the lines between gallery, museum and retail space as it pays tribute to Philippine history, culture and arts.

This Christmas, give the gift of wearable art this Christmas.  Have pride owning and giving gifts immortalized with artworks from our National Artists, talented young Filipino designers and our fave Filipino cartoonists.


Freeway’s National Artist Collectors’ Series aims to reintroduce the Philippine arts and culture to the younger generation, making fashionalism hip and relevant.  You will be seeing the works of Vicente Manansala (Visual Arts), Levi Celerio (Music)  and its latest collection featuring Botong Francisco (Visual Arts) in the artist’s 100th Year Anniversary.

Ensembles collaborates with the most celebrated young fashion designers through its Young Designer Series.  Now on its 4th installment, Ensembles collaborates with Chris Diazwith its Romantic Holiday 2012 collection.  Check out the romantic lace designs and the sexy knit dresses from the genius of Chris Diaz.

Solo celebrates Pinoy pop culture through its Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series. It’s a clever showstopper for the young while arousing nostalgia for those who grew up with the witty and playful Philippine comic characters we all love.  The series had featured Larry Alcala’s Slice of Life, Tony Velasquez’s Kenkoy and now on its third year, Tonton Young’s Pupung.

Another good news! These brands let you enjoy the convenience of shopping from home all season long!  All these special collections are available for online shopping at www.kasha.com.ph. KASHA brings together the most loved special collections of Freeway, Ensembles and Solo. It’s the online equivalent of browsing the racks of your fave brand stores from the comforts of your home!
