Sperry’s new summer shoes

SPERRY, a favorite among seafarers and preppy dressers alike, is inextricable from the classic boat shoe silhouette that had defined its legacy. This season, Sperry adds fresh colors to its Sperry Float line and a couple of all new styles just in time for summer. For an easy-on, easy off summer sandal, Sperry introduces the Winward Float slide. Made of super lightweight injected EVA foam, the Windward is cushioned in all the right places and is water-resistant to boot. There are three men’s and five women’s colors to choose from. Meanwhile, the Water Strider is a versatile yet comfy shoe. Its sleek yet sporty design is best paired with shorts. This lightweight slip-on for men and women hugs the foot during various summertime activities and like the Windward slide is made of hydrophobic EVA foam. Launched last year, the A/O Float Boat Shoe is a fun reimagining of the classic topsider but in molded EVA foam. With breathable “portholes” located on the sides, this shoe keeps feet feeling fresh. Its strategically placed “gills” ensure water stays out. This season, Sperry is adding a new men’s and two women’s colorways to the collection. Sperry’s Summer collection is available on Sperry.com.ph, and at TriNoMa, Glorietta, Bonifacio High Street, UP Town Center, SM Aura, SM North EDSA, SM Fairview, SM Mall of Asia, SM East Ortigas, Robinsons Manila, SM Southmall, SM Lipa, Robinsons Ilocos Norte, SM Baguio, Ayala Cebu, SM Cebu, SM Seaside Cebu, SM Bacolod, SM Iloilo, Centrio, SM Lanang Premier, SM Davao Ecoland, and Gaisano Mall Tagum.

Uniqlo to open new stores across PHL

JAPANESE global apparel retailer Uniqlo is ready to welcome the summer season with new and renovated stores across the Philippines, starting with an improved SM Fairview, Quezon City. In the second quarter of this year, Uniqlo will open stores in SM Cauayan in Isabela and Festive Walk in IloIlo. In addition, Uniqlo will relocate to a different area in SM Mall of Asia. “We are happy with the unending support we have received from Filipinos since we opened our first store in the Philippines. This encourages us to widen our network and continue opening new stores while improving existing ones, so more Filipinos can have access to high-quality and affordable clothing that suits their everyday needs,” says Geraldine Sia, Chief Operating Officer of Uniqlo Philippines.

Deoproce to the (skin) rescue

IN 2021, Deoproce Philippines was lauded for its breakthrough in two things: skincare innovation in championing green sea caviar or sea grapes (commonly known as lato) and its stereotype-smashing choice for a male skincare endorser, Korean hallyu star Song Kang (Navillera, Nevertheless, Forecasting Love and Weather).  The Deoproce Natural Green Caviar range launched last year championed green caviar, an unusual ingredient but chock full of Vitamins A and C, Amino, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Song Kang and Deoproce continue their collaboration with newest line, the Green Caviar + Skin Rescue range. Formulated with a blend of its signature green caviar, plus sugar kelp and sparkling water, the new line can help rescue users from skin woes such as enlarged pores, excessive oil, and rough, problematic skin. The Green Caviar + Skin Rescue range features Laminaria Saccharina Fermen or Sugar Kelp, known as European Kelp, which has antioxidant properties that help prevent skin aging and are also anti-inflammatory. Meanwhile, sparkling water gently removes dead skin cells and effectively controls the excretion of excess sebum. The range has five products: the Skin Rescue Peeling Gel is a skin-balancing formula that removes dead skin cells; the Skin Rescue Day and Night Moisturizer, a light and non-sticky cream for morning use but which can also be used at night to target excess sebum and clear skin of dirt and impurities while sleeping; the Cleansing Foam;  Toner; and Ampoule. Deoproce is available in Watsons and SM Beauty and online on Amorfia.

Repairing sun damage

TO help repair one’s skin from sun damage, a natural and organic health and wellness product and services provider, Santé, formulated the Soleil Marula Oil with Lavender and Santé Barley Extract. Using marula oil extracted from the nut of the marula tree’s fruit from South Africa, the product is a good source of antioxidants that help improve the skin’s condition. It is supposed to assist in stimulating the production of collagen in the skin and aid in minimizing its water loss, leading to youthful, rejuvenated, and moisturized skin. Along with lavender that delivers a soothing scent, it contains Santé Barley extract gathered from organic barley grass in New Zealand, which is supposed to have anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, and anti-aging properties. The product is a moisturizer, primer, and make-up remover in one bottle, and meant for morning and evening use by women and men who are over 25 years of age.
