Just a few weeks to before our finals and our semester is about to end. Actually this will be my last semester in Centro Escolar University, Manila so for some reasons I will be busier this summer such as job hunting but I’ll find time to dip into summer in a bikini, sun-bathing by the beach with cocktails as I fell in love with Neon Island’s summer collection for 2015. They launch their newest summer collection last Friday, March 13, 2015 at SOMA Stores, Green Sun Hotel Makati. Not only that, they also celebrated their second anniversary.
Just to give you a wider scope about the brand, Neon Island is a Filipino clothing brand and their pieces and designs has a sort of tropical vibe. Their collections revolve around nature and beautiful sceneries such as cactus, kiwis, papayas, pineapples, pastels and in cotton candy hues. They don’t just stick to clothes but also clutches. The owners of the brand were Alyssa Gibbs (daughter of the local singer Janno Gibbs and actress Bing Loyzaga) and Aira Medina who were best friends for almost a decade sharing the same passion. Yes they started to be friends when they were in high school until they decided to have an outlet which is something tropical and that is the Neon Island.
Back to the event, I just want to say thank you to Miss Alyssa Lapid of alyssalapid.com for inviting us together with my fellow classmates in Blogging 101. The set-up reflects the brand’s name with a real pure shores party- perfect summer playlist, pina coladas, mylar balloons, golden party hats and cactus cupcakes.
You can visit their store at SOMA Stores or you can have it online at www.neonislandclothing.com. You can like/follow them on their facebook page (Neon Island), twitter and instagram (@neonisland).
