Fossil’s 2015 collection of leather goods and bags is curiously fun. The new retail feel of their Shangri La Plaza store offers both products – bags that are totally deconstructed and even totally re-imagined in ingenious ways and watch parts that are under a microscope – with twists and turns and pops of humor to be discovered in the most curious of places.
Here I was with Janeena Chan, host at #UPFRONTatUAAPS78 on ABS-CBN Sports, placed during the event as one of the curiously dressed people that day.
The leather section of Fossil Shangri La store exudes the delicious smell of leather. It’s intoxicatingly good and it lures you in even further. I gotta hand it to Fossil, their FW 2015 leather collection has lot of pretty pieces!
My picks from the leather collection are the drawstring backpacks and the curiously cute penguin coin purse as seen above.
As for Fossil’s watches, there’s something for everyone.
From (His) Everyday Watch showcases the time-honoured Grant collection inspired by the simplicity of vintage timepieces, to Del Rey Sport, for that athletic appeal with a sleek black leather with rose gold case.
But what caught my attention the most was the (Her) Boyfriend watch and the Jacqueline watch. The former has the simplicity of good design and details by borrowing from menswear sensibilities. While the latter comes in rose gold dial, white or rose gold face, narrow strap of either stainless steel or almond leather, either combination makes for a good everyday watch.
The Cecile watch is a limited edition and only 1054 timepieces were made. It includes four interchangeable straps with one-of-a-kind leather case. Apart from the Cecile, each Fossil watch comes in a cute tin can case as seen above. Well, almost all Fossil watch comes in a tin can case, save also for the handsome one below.
The nomads (Alyssa, Angela and I) heehee, together with Rochelle of Pix Republik. It was such a fun launch, congratulations Fossil Philippines!
