Thereâ€™s no excuse to look drab and uncool this season as clothing labels like Plains & Prints come up with the most charming looks for summer. Fashion designer Rhett Eala has collaborated with the clothing brand for the collection to especially give the working Filipina some fashionable options and let her feel light and chic despite the rising temperature.
Founder and owner Roxanne Farillas describes the labelâ€™s fashion mission: â€śPlains & Prints is dedicated to creating versatile pieces that are stylish, fashionable, yet still wearable and appropriate for working women.
â€śWe like to consistently inject a fresh, new spin into these while staying true to the brandâ€™s fashion aesthetic. And I think Rhett has achieved that with a repertoire that features pieces the Plains & Prints wearer will definitely love to don for the season.â€ť
Itâ€™s all about having a sense of adventure and getting that chic laid-back vibe, says Eala on his collection: â€śThe cuts are relaxed, either falling away from or skimming the body. The lighter color palette and playful prints give a nod to the sun-kissed, carefree days of this favorite fashion season.â€ť
