SM Ladies Fashion presents a comprehensive Ready-To-Wear collection that successfully translates haute couture inspiration from the international runways into wearable, accessible fashion. Casual, business, and lounge wear are given a fresh twist with bold color and vivid patterns, while evening wear exudes sexy sparkle.
When asked about SM Ladies Fashion shows, head stylist Millet Arzaga says, "It's about prints! The entire collection carries florals, stripes, paisleys, and scarf-prints that brighten and add a positive vibe to your wardrobe." And true enough, each of the lines carry varying shapes, sizes, and styles. Resort and casual wear lines highlight bold veggie patterns, florals, and swirls of mirrored geometric shapes that give festive visual impact. Traditionally conservative corporate wear becomes fashion-forward with touches of print on shirts, shirt details, skirts and pants.
Cheerful colors also take center stage this season in SM Ladies Fashion, offering a spectrum of choices from bold shades to lady-like sorbet and pastel hues. "It's a new take on the colors that you don't have in your closets yet," explains Arzaga.
It seems they want you to forget about neutral dressing in the office for now. Welcome brightly hued skirts, pants, shirts, and blouses into your closets and experiment a bit with combinations of oranges, pinks, reds, yellows and greens. But if look-at-me colors aren't your thing, feminine sorbets and pastels are there to save and satisfy you.
The playful use of texture is the theme for evening wear, where somber blacks and beiges are amped up with sheers, sequins, and lace. Textured bottoms and delicious drapery also add drama without becoming too costumey for comfort. Best of all, one can count on finding a great outfit for a future formal soirée without breaking the bank.
