Designer Pat Santos shares, “When I was thinking of a fabric that has yet to gain mainstream exposure on the market, Neoprene immediately came to my mind. This fabric is great for creating structure and can be for both casual and formal wear.”
MANILA, Philippines – Neoprene, a tech fabric that has gained high fashion status as the fabric of choice of some of the world’s design powerhouses — Gucci, Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, Zac Posen, Stella McCartney, to name a few — reigned supreme in designer Pat Santos’ latest collection Colors and Mixology, launched in Philippine Fashion Week spring/summer 2015.
Taking off from scuba diving gear, Santos made neoprene the ultimate style star in fashion-forward but still wearable pieces composed of tailored tops and bottoms, dresses, and couture gowns set in his choice colors of blue and green. The refreshing, cool vibe of the anthology was complemented by interesting bits of net and mesh, colored and medallion laces, textured sheer fabric, and colored applique.
To seal the looks and lend them sophistication, Santos also infused his neoprene-based designs with beads, stones, and Swarovski crystals, which have become the Pat Santos trademark.
Santos says, “When I was coming up with this collection, I was thinking of a fabric that has yet to gain mainstream exposure on the market. Neoprene immediately came to my mind. This fabric is great for creating structure and can be for both casual and formal wear.”
