Philippine Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012 - Ipanema Resort Wear Collection

This is the last fashion show that I covered last Philippine Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012. This year, Ipanema collaborated with five Philippine Fashion Designers to create their own clothing design inspired by the collection. The five designers, Catherine Cavilte, Lyle Ibanez, Anthony Nocom, Dave Ocampo and Raoul Ramirez, crafted the Resort Wear Collection that featured distinctive style and design, one that truly underscores vivacious living.
So fashion-forward men and women, brace yourselves as Ipanema, the stylish Brazilian flip-flop brand, is once again showcased their latest Resort Wear Collection for Spring-Summer 2012. The changing of fashion seasons is enough to keep most stylistas on their toes – literally. These five fashion mavens were chosen not only for their modern and edgy design visions but also for their understanding of Philippine Fashion discerning style and taste. Here they are:

Anthony Nocom
Nocom's look was inspired from the bold beach colors from the Ipanema Surf Tomas Masc II and the classic black and white tribal prints of Ipanema Classica Urbana Masc.
Catherine Cavilte
She said her designs for Ipanema's Resort Wear Collections complement spring/summer elegance that features earthy tones and animal prints mounted on plain silk satins.  She said the Ipanema Appliques Ad II and Ipanema Classica Envolvente can be easily paired with her flowy dresses that ladies can wear casually on the beach or at dinner parties.
Dave Ocampo
His collection celebrates the colors of summer and feminism to emphasize the silhouette of women, using spandex and stretch tool material with floral and circular prints combined with bright and vibrant colors that are very comfortable in terms of cuts and designs.
Lyle Ibanez
Ibanez’s look for Ipanema Resort Wear Collection 2012 was inspired from the Ipanema Ritmos II Ad, a sling back flip-flops that has flowers appliqués and subtle geometric patterns.
Raoul Ramirez
For Ipanema Resort Wear Collection 2012, he created a look that based on the metallic characteristics of the Ipanema New Trance Fem and the floral accents of the elevated aesthetics of the Ipanema Ritmos Ad.
Here are some of the taken photos of their fashion show:
