SOLO Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilla feat. Tony Velasquez' Kenkoy

Talking about simple appreciation in nationalism, let’s talk about Pinoy Komiks. I’m sure when you heard that term Kenkoy comes in your mind. Just like you, I’ve seen Kenkoy before in Pinoy Komiks, I also watched him in a movie adaptation performed by Chiquito and Janno Gibbs. He was created by Antonio "Tony" Velasquez, the Father of Philippine Cartoons and is considered as Philippines’ first true pop icon and a ludicrous portrait of the Filipino. So how can you combine nationalism and fashion? I have shared before the Freeway National Artist Collectors Series now I am sharing you guys the latest in Philippine Fashion it is Clothing Collection of Solo the Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia.

It was last year when Solo launched its first Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia that featured Larry Alcala’s Slice of Life. It is refreshing to see how Alcala’s Pinoy Cartoons are being celebrated and re-introduced to today’s youth as part of Filipino pop culture. But this year Solo featured Tony Velasquez’ Kenkoy also this is the SOLO’s 2nd installment of Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia.

In Fashion there is no old and new, that is why Solo Pinoy Cartoonist Memorablia takes timeless Kenkoy comic strips and mixes it up on trendy silhouettes and fabrics with different treatments such as foil printing, embroidery, embossed printing, flocking, high density printing and washed effect.   The collection consists of His&Hers graphic tees, polo shirts, woven tops and dresses, men’s long sleeves, shorts and accessories such as stainless necklaces and slingbags, gift sets like watches, vanity sets and lighters and will hit Solo stores in September.  Each Memoriabilia Series item will have its own bio-tag of Tony Velasquez as well as its own unique packaging.
