Fashion Week: Penshoppe, Spring/Summer 2014

"Penshoppe Spring/Summer 2014"

We didn’t get good seats at Penshoppe’s Spring/Summer 2014 fashion show, so I don’t have a lot of good photos. I’m only posting the best of the lot here, the rest you can find at the Pinoy Threads tumblr page.

Penshoppe’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection can be divided into three parts: the preppy roses, the laid-back blues, and the greens with attitude.

I know that Penshoppe is geared towards the younger generation. It’s one of the reasons why I took to the brand back in high school, all the way to college. But the best thing about Penshoppe was the fact that it really has Filipino features in mind. And by Filipino, I mean everyone who lives in the Philippines, whether they be natives, mixed breeds, or pure imports. Penshoppe took all cultures in–and all ages. Because of Penshoppe’s more conservative fit, although it was geared towards the young, it wasn’t uncommon for the older generation to find a piece or two in their wardrobe.

Over the years though, as Filipinos became more experimental with fashion, the brand seems to have lost its mass appeal.

Although it catered to more styles and to a larger market, I can’t help but feel that Penshoppe lost something along the way. Quality being one of the easiest to pinpoint.

But I hardly think that Penshoppe is done tinkering with their brand. I just hope that when the dust settles, Penshoppe will rise a better brand because of all the experimentation they’ve been doing.
