Easy Summer Dressing with Designer Mich Araullo
In today’s modern age of instant gratification, there’s definitely a yearning to throwback to unplugged, lazy days of yore. This is apparent in the trend of nature travel, slow food, outdoor magazine editorials, blogger Instagram feeds and well, Kinfolk.
Filipino Fashion designer Mich Araullo brings us a new collection that evokes nostalgia for one beautiful summer, the kind you wish would never end. Photographed by Artu Nepomuceno in peaceful surroundings of trees, tall grass, barren fields, and a river, Araullo’s pieces demonstrate easy yet chic summer style. Worn by model Samantha Humphries and styled by Meg Manzano, these pieces look appropriate for both out of town jaunts and in the city strolls, depending on your mood.
Try on Araullo’s very on-trend off the shoulder-striped dress that you can accessorize with dangling earrings, gold bangles, a mini bag and wedge espadrilles for a lunch out with friends.
A crisp white linen cotton lace is made fresh for a shirtdress with tassel accents. Araullo’s sexy asymmetrical floral lace corset top can be paired with jeans or shorts for a casual get together.
A blue and white hand-woven shift and a red and white hand-woven top with tassel accents add to the collection’s bohemian chic aesthetic and embrace the celebration of Filipino craftsmanship. Both are perfect for an afternoon spent with friends or family.
Dress up easy Sunday mornings with linen front tie tops and three-quarter sleeves in a variety of colors. They work well with skirts, shorts, culottes and breezy pants.
All in all, the look of Araullo’s Spring-Summer 2016 collection will leave one indulging in the feeling of nostalgia, inspired by earthy, bohemian feels with a look that is understated, up to date and fresh. It inspires a woman to take a step back, enjoy life and be in the moment, no matter where she is.
