Gymwear and more from Balenciaga

THE NEWEST offering from Balenciaga includes elements of a contemporary active lifestyle. It is a collection of athletic evening wear, niche basics, unbranded statement pieces, and comfortable new ideas. Balenciaga-branded Gymwear, baggy tailored suits, and flare-heeled pumps are put on the same plane, to be worn at once, for any ordinary interaction. Three new sneaker styles are introduced. The Drive, an iteration of the Track, is stripped of any extraneous material, becoming a sleek, flat-soled sneaker. The Zen, inspired in equal parts by the footwear of martial artists and football players, is an all-new line of gym shoes. The Track Sandal reconstructs the chunky-soled sneaker as open-toed, adjusting its comfort levels with Velcro closures and a lighter weight. The Tyrex, introduced in the Summer 20 runway show, weaves athletic components into a dance shoe silhouette, creating an idea outside of either genre. The Tractor Derby, too, circles one classic shape with another. The expected shapes of workwear, party dresses, pea coats, and skirt sets are elongated, deconstructed, twisted, and/or turned upside down, with diagonal seams, uneven hemlines, stacked pockets, and flipped collar details left in place to give the inversions away. Bags, coats, and jackets are designed with sustainability and practicality in mind: the Neo Tote, Trade Tote, Buckle Bag, and the Weekend bottle holder react to a need for transporting the essentials, while centered front pockets on outerwear make phone access easy. In the Philippines, Balenciaga is distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., and is located at Greenbelt 5. Visit or follow @ssilifeph on Instagram for more information.

Bershka launches Mickey Mouse collection

THIS Fall/Winter ‘20, Bershka teams up with Mickey Mouse on a college-inspired collection. All the Mickey Mouse at Bershka pieces nod to classic collegiate wear — with a twist. From the classic varsity jacket with contrast panels and chenille patches to the super-oversized striped polo that can be worn as a dress, from the tartan bomber with Mickey all-over print to the brown oversized cardigan with all-over Mickey logos — this special collection brings that varsity vibe down to the smallest detail. College T-shirts get a 2000s style makeover, making them look like they shrank in the laundry. The color palette focuses on primary colors: red, blue and yellow, but also introduces camel as a key color for this season to break the rhythm and add variety.  Sets are also a key trend this season. The Mickey Mouse at Bershka collection features a mini skirt plus a zipped jumper set with the iconic Mickey logo all-over print, and a tartan light jacket and two-piece trousers. There is also an oversized Mickey shield sweatshirt, a stone washed denim with all-over Mickey logo, and a white graphic hoodie. Footwear is included with hi-top double tone canvas shoes making an appearance together with white canvas sneakers in Mickey Mouse all-over print. Check the complete collection at and get them in-stores or through Bershka’s Shop from Home service.
