Two new clothing lines you should consider for your luxury basics
Luxury basics are all the rage right now. I know, “luxury” and “basic” seem contradictory but between the love for Vetements sweaters, collabs like Lemaire for Uniqlo, and the editor-approved aesthetic of Mansur Gavriel, it’s all about that polished approach to even your simplest garb.
It’s with this that Rustan’s brings in Ricardo Preto. The Portuguese designer has shown in Lisbon Fashion Week and Vienna Fashion Week along with receiving respect for his ready- to-wear women’s and men’s lines. His approach is all about color-matching with a distinct eye for classic cuts and contemporary details.
His namesake line which feature wine-colored wide-leg pants (which I love) and other reliable selections are now exclusively carried in Rustan’s. Ricardo even stopped operations in his shop in Portugal to focus on his collections here in the Philippines.
Meant for a 7 to 7 lifestyle, here are clothes to get you through a work day and also the dinner night out. Check out the black and white Becas dress that can work with your leather slides and also your high heels.
On the other hand, U by Ricardo Preto revives one of the oldest in-house brands of Rustan’s. Designed for a more youthful, casual market, the selections range from a deep wash denim jacket to a white fringe shirt dress. I’d say this is for your weekend gear whether it’d be a city trip to Hong Kong or a beach getaway to Coron.
With well-chosen fabrics and timeless cuts, this can be considered a very small investment to everyday staples that you don’t have to fuss about when you put on. True luxury is also marked by it being effortless, don’t you think?
