Fashion industry news. Get the dibs on what's new with Uniqlo. 

Global apparel retailer UNIQLO announces the launch of the Uniqlo U 2022 Fall/Winter collection starting September 23. Designed by Artistic Director Christophe Lemaire and his UNIQLO R&D team in Paris under the theme the Essentials with a Point of View, the new collection offers an even more considered take on minimalism.

Uniqlo U 2022 Fall/Winter began with the idea of a capsule wardrobe that could fit into a single suitcase, adaptable enough to take you through an entire season with essentials that pay special attention to functionality and versatility.



A New Genderless Offering
The men’s and women’s design teams worked together to create a concise collection of genderless essentials such as the practical pocketable long coat and workwear-inspired utility short blouson jacket, varied in size but not design, that reflect a modern approach to dressing. Boxy silhouettes and roomy proportions are suited to many body types and layer effortlessly with both the men’s and women’s garments.

Essentials for our Lifestyles
The women’s collection features carefully considered essentials that provide practicality, comfort, and versatility in our daily lives. Utilitarian, layered silhouettes are both beautiful and functional: coats made for commuting, soft wool knits, menswear-inspired shirts, classic high-waisted jeans with a modern, rounded leg. The men’s lineup is a thoughtfully curated, versatile collection of pieces designed for city life and outdoor pursuits. Generous, boxy layers made of soft wool, flannel and cotton jersey bring a sense of warmth and comfort. The perfect chino pants modernize the classic workwear style with a wide, tapered leg.

A range of sophisticated new colors - bright ochre yellow, purple, washed red and warm white - complement rich neutrals, grounded in nature.

10:59:00 PM

 

Old Darna OST out, New Darna OST in! BGYO joins this generation’s Darna in her flight against great danger with the group’s rousing rendition of “Patuloy Lang Ang Lipad,” the main theme song of the new ABS-CBN Entertainment series, “Mars Ravelo’s Darna.”

Gelo, Akira, JL, Mikki, and Nate’s latest P-pop offering conveys the excitement and confidence in the program’s titular character, Darna played by Jane De Leon, who embodies heroism, love, and compassion for the people of the fictional Nueva Esperanza.

Released a day before “Darna” simultaneously premiered on television and online last August 15, the soundtrack has already earned over 136,000 streams on Spotify and almost 100,000 views on YouTube. It also charted as the leading song on iTunes in the Philippines, Singapore, UAE, and Saudi Arabia immediately after release.

BGYO performed the track in a live performance on “ASAP Natin ‘To” featuring the powerhouse cast of “Darna.”


 
Kapamilya singer-songwriters Angela Ken, Trisha Denise, SAB, and Lian Kyla penned the lyrics of “Patuloy Lang Ang Lipad” with ABS-CBN Music creative director Jonathan Manalo who also produced the song.

The series meanwhile continues to be the talk of the town with viewers anticipating Darna’s challenging fights against Extras in the coming episodes and her growing friendship with Brian Robles (Joshua Garcia).

Produced by ABS-CBN’s JRB Creative Production unit, “Darna” airs weeknights at 8 pm on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z, CineMo, and TV5. It is also available on iWantTFC and TFC.

Ben&Ben brings a unique perspective on forgiveness with new international single “The Ones We Once Loved”

8:26:00 PM

 

A different perspective, a different approach. As one of the hit bands of today's generation, Ben&Ben brings a new insight into forgiveness with their latest international single "The Ones We once Loved." I'm not sure about your feelings about their latest feeling but I find the song by Ben&Ben digs deep more than what it says. A deeper meaning in every word. 

Before we give more about this new single let's check out what Ben&Ben had made and some of their reach on different platforms. Having amassed more than a billion streams and a total of 3.5 million listeners on Spotify, Ben&Ben continues to make generation-defining statements with heartfelt tunes that resonate on a universal level. Considered as one of the most commercially successful acts in the Southeast Asian region, the nine-piece collective has recently won the Best Asian Band at the 2022 BandLab NME Awards, and reaped multiple recognitions for their groundbreaking work on the sophomore album, Pebble House, Vol. 1: Kuwaderno.

With an impressive music portfolio and an upcoming North American tour, the Filipino hitmakers return with another international release following the success of 2020’s “Doors” and “Leaves,” a collaboration with Korean singer-songwriter Young K of Day 6. Released under Sony Music, their new single “The Ones We Once Loved” is a quietly startling confessional that sounds emotionally impactful even in its apparent weightlessness. Written by Ben&Ben’s very own Paolo Benjamin, the track builds its staircase to somewhere personal and intimate, offering a unique perspective on love, forgiveness, and breakup.

“It's a song that owns up to one's faults, makes proper apologies, but also expresses hurt, as breakups are often two-way things,” says the band in an official statement. “It’s also one of the hardest songs we’ve written, because it requires the writer to forgive himself for his past and own up to his faults and mistakes. The painstaking process towards that state, the cycles of anxiety and catharsis that the writer went through, and the eventual expression of all of that in the form of this song, as an encapsulation of such a heavy journey, is what makes this song stand out among our other songs.”

Produced by Johnoy Danao and Jean Paul Verona, the song takes a deceptively stripped-down approach in terms of musicality, but careful not to lose the earnestness that defined their recent hits. According to the folk-pop outfit, they wanted to keep the arrangement as bare and as transparent as possible while still maintaining a certain depth, weight, and storytelling within the instrumentation.

 


“Supporting the vocals is the staple piano sound, as one would hear when being sung the humblest and sincerest of songs, slowly followed by more and more melodic instruments as the singer opens up and exposes vulnerability,” the band explains the sonic motif behind the release. “At the end of the day, we wanted to make an arrangement that would provide no barrier to taking in each meaning of every word of a song that has so much to say.”

Backed by rich but sparsely layered instrumentation, the song, particularly its chorus, captures “what so many of us are often too afraid or unprepared to say after a difficult breakup.” Hoping that listeners would take responsibility in making amends with one’s self, and the person on the other end of the grieving process, the band shares, “We are hoping that this song somehow helps people bridge that gap and feel the importance of really letting go through a multi-faceted forgiveness: one of the other, and of the self.”

“The Ones We Once Loved” serves as Ben&Ben’s official single in support of their Philippine send-off concert and North America/Canada Tour in 2022. It also marks their first collaboration with globally renowned photographer Geloy Concepcion, whose work was recently featured in Vogue Magazine, and other notable publications and exhibits worldwide.

“We’ve always wanted to do a collaboration with Geloy Concepcion as most of the band members look up to him, that when we realized he would be the perfect artist to work with for The Ones We Once Loved, we instantly took a chance and set a meeting up with him,” Ben&Ben shares. “In Geloy’s current project ‘Things You Wanted To Say But Never Did’ we saw how resonant and resemblant his messaging was to The Ones We Once Loved and that he may be the best artist to communicate the song’s message. Geloy’s eye and his way of introducing a space to let out feelings and emotions was one we wanted to emulate in this campaign—a space where people sit safely and quietly with their feelings.”

Earlier this week, Ben&Ben encouraged their fans to use the hashtags #BenandBen #BenandBenTOWOL #TOWOL and #TheOnesWeOnceLoved as part of its Twitter activation campaign promoting the international release of “The Ones We Once Loved.” The hashtags revealed official Ben&Ben Twitter emojis, and unlocked a special preview of the song last August 24, 2022.



Ben&Ben’s “The Ones We Once Loved” is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment.

Jane De Leon, The New Darna, Wows Netizens in an Impressive Transformation Debut

12:49:00 PM

 

Are you one of the viewers and fans waiting for that moment? 

The eagerly-anticipated transformation of Jane De Leon as the new Darna has finally happened last Friday (August 19), capping off the pilot week of the ABS-CBN series that also saw the death of Leonor (Iza Calzado), the first Darna.

The #LipadDarna episode revealed how the white mythical stone found its way back to Narda—now an emergency medical technician—during a rescue mission caused by an earthquake in Nueva Esperanza.


 

Despite having qualms about fully embracing her destiny as a superhero, Narda bravely swallowed the stone, triggering her Darna alter ego and saving those who were trapped in the quake’s rubble.

The momentous scene shot up the hashtag #LipadDarna atop the local Twitter trend list and at the second spot in the worldwide list, with netizens primarily praising Jane’s performance, the costume, and visual effects.


 

After the episode, JRB Creative Production also released the official poster of the series, which shows Jane in a fierce battle stance while fully clad in her red and gold Darna ensemble that also earned positive feedback online for its high quality.

During Monday’s episode, viewers were introduced to the mysterious characters of Javier Toledo or Lindol Man (Dominic Ochoa) and Master Klaudio (Joko Diaz), who helped Ding from men trying to attack him. Will they be friends or foes to him and Narda?

Meanwhile, Regina (Janella Salvador) and Brian’s (Joshua Garcia) alliance in trying to expose the corruption of Mayor Zaldy Vallesteros (Simon Ibarra) continues after they found out that Toledo was the chief engineer of the collapsed building during the quake.


 

Tune in to “Mars Ravelo’s Darna,” airing weekdays, 8 pm on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, CineMo, and TV5. It is also available to watch via Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, and The Filipino Channel.

3 Common Documents, What are these, and Where to Get Fast?

11:55:00 PM

 

Do you believe that there are three (3) common documents that we will use in our life span? If yes, then do you think you know what are these?

Believe it or not, there are three (3) common documents that compel us to use whether it's for school, for work, or personal matters. These documents very much tell about us or someone close to us, and that is from life to death.

The intriguing three (3) documents are the Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate, and Death Certificate. One way or another we all use these documents. Most of the time it describes our existence and absence in this life.

The Birth Certificate.

It is the main document that proves or disapproves of our existence. In a birth certificate, we have the information about our parents - the name of our father and mother, where they live, and their birth dates too. This certificate is essential and needed from the time we are all born. It is in demand and the most requested document. It starts from elementary to high school to college, and even up to the time that we work, it is needed.

The Marriage Certificate.

I think this document, whether single or married, we'll be needed in some circumstances like school, work, or claiming of inheritance.

In school, students present the Marriage Certificates of their parents to prove that they are sons and daughters. While at work, it is requested to prove if you're married or not. For inheriting properties, it is a requirement to present the individual as the rightful heir.

The Death Certificate.

When it is about personal matters, we won't be using this kind of document if it is about us, but our heirs will do. Those that we will be leaving behind. Or us to our parents.

Where to get it fast?

Today, with the presence and abundance of technology, applications, and the internet, our lives are made easy. We get things in a flash, fast, and efficiently. Gone are the days of slow pokes because today is about speed and efficiency. It is hassle-free and no worry. All you have to do is relax.

Online is the fastest way to get your documents.

It is as fast as counting 1, 2, and 3. A few clicks from the website PSAHelpline.ph and viola you'll have your documents in a matter of days. So, all you need to do afterward is relax and wait until it arrives. Two to three days is the fastest to have your documents on your doorstep. It may change if there's a problem with the requested documents but if there's none we will have it in no time.

Few simple steps to navigate the request.

Decide first on the document we'll be requesting and for what purpose, whether it is a birth certificate or marriage certificate, for me, get them both because we'll never know when it is needed. It is best to keep one.

Once we have decided, visit the website www.PSAHelpline.ph. We'll land on the front page, we'll see different "order now" buttons. Of course, before doing anything else always read the details and other things that we think are important to know. By the way, whatever button we click, we'll end up on the "order now" page.

On the order page, we'll have four (4) options - BIRTH, MARRIAGE, CENOMAR, and DEATH. Since the platform only allows one transaction at a time, pick what we need most. Don't forget to tick the "I accept the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy," then click "Continue".

We'll be asked if we're requesting our Own Certificate or Someone Else's. Then, click again the "Continue" button.

 


Right now, we will have our BIRTH CERTIFICATE. As we continue we'll be requested to prepare the following information for easy reference. It is better to have it with us when filling in the form.

  • Name, sex, birthday, and valid government-issued ID.
  • Name as it appears on your birth certificate
  • Father's name
  • Mother's name
  • Birthplace
  • Late registration (if applicable)
  • The purpose of the request
  • Legal proceedings (if applicable)
  • Delivery address and contact information

After preparation, we're all set to fill out the form. Make sure all the information we provide is correct, especially the government-issued ID, because they'll be asking for that ID when they deliver it.


 

Once completed, we'll be asked to check if all are correct. Then, we will select the number of copies we want to have and their price. It varies depending on the document type. For us is the BIRTH CERTIFICATE which is Php365.00 per copy (for the CENOMAR, it is Php420.00 per copy). Confirm and continue.

A list of payment options will be presented. We'll have the option to pay the requested document to the following:

  • Credit Card
  • GCash
  • PayMaya
  • 7-Eleven
  • Bayad Center
  • Palawan pawnshop
  • Bancnet
  • Dragonpay

After paying the amount required for the requested document, a receipt with the details of PSAHelpline, being the agent for the said transaction, will be provided.


 
Wait for the delivery. Sometimes it may take time but the good news is that we don't have to go through the hassle of getting our copy. In just 2-3 days we'll have our document delivered to us.

So, if we're in a hurry and would like to get our documents fast, just type the name PSAHelpline on the browser and help will be on our way.

Janine and Lovi Give all the Feels in Interabled Queer Love Story “SLEEP WITH ME”

11:46:00 AM

 

Sleep with Me,” starring Janine Gutierrez and Lovi Poe, is the next girls’ love (GL) series that will tickle your fancy!

All six episodes just dropped on iWantTFC and the series immediately became the top trending topic on Twitter in the Philippines.

More than the genuine ‘kilig’ between the female leads, the series tackles the struggles of interabled queer individuals and how they navigate life in a society that makes them feel like outcasts.

Lovi portrays Luna, who suffers from a rare sleeping disorder, while Janine plays Harry, an ever-lovely late-night radio DJ who uses a wheelchair.

The series, which recently won the audience award for best episodic at the LGBTQ+ film festival in Los Angeles, is also available for iWantTFC premium subscribers outside the Philippines and Indonesia, and is directed by Samantha Lee, who is a proud member of the LGBT community herself.

No matter how you identify as, “Sleep with Me” is definitely a must-watch. Here’s why:

Beautiful love story between two girls

“Sleep with Me” can be classified as a GL. However, as Direk Sam mentioned in a previous interview, it is a simple and tender love story between two individuals who just happen to be girls. The series does not overcomplicate the sexuality of Harry and Luna because they both know (and are 100% sure of themselves) that they are madly in love with one another. And even if they are both female, that isn’t a problem at all because as the saying goes - “love is love.”



Represents persons with disabilities

The series also highlights the struggles (whether visual or not) of PWDs. In Luna’s case, her disorder isn’t visible as she’s been diagnosed with delayed sleep phase syndrome (no, it is not insomnia). Luna is awake during the wee hours of the night and falls asleep during the day, which makes her feel isolated from the rest of the world.

In contrast, Harry uses a wheelchair due to a past car accident. A lot of scenes highlight the lack of importance society gives to wheelchair users. However, it also gives us a different perspective on how NOT to feel sorry for them, as evident in one scene, wherein Harry tells a worried Luna “I’m not as fragile as I look.”


Lovi and Janine’s palpable chemistry

What happens when two gorgeous and alluring women play each other’s love interests? A major heart-fluttering ‘kilig’-fest. From Harry and Luna’s enchanting meet-cute, to their impromptu “date,” their intimate first night, and all the awkward yet extremely cute exchanges in between, their delicate love and fondness for each other radiates through the screen and makes viewers’ hearts skip a beat.

Luna’s angst is relatable

Luna is a science textbook writer who carries a lot of emotional baggage stemming from her rare condition and lingering issues from her past relationship. She’s used to shutting herself out from everyone else in her twilight-lit bedroom and relies on a cup of ramen noodles and iced coffee on a nightly basis.

Although she may seem stuck-up, in reality, she is just clouded by her deepest fears and is longing to be loved. That is why she found a friend in Wendy (Nour Hooshmand), who gives her wise, unsolicited advice and is willing to listen on the rare times Luna opens up to her.

 
Harry’s sweet disposition lightens up the mood

Unlike Luna, Harry is confident, a go-getter, and is the complete opposite of “torpe,” after all, she was the one who made the first move. Harry is Luna’s ray of sunshine and comes up with top-notch punchlines to reassure Luna of her love and make her feel secure. “Gawa tayo ng mundo na para sa ating dalawa lang” and “starting today, ako na ‘yung magwo-worry sayo 24/7” are some of her best remarks.

Highlights a cute sibling bond

In addition to Harry and Luna’s love story, the series explores the familial bond between Harry and her gay brother Kai (Kerwin King), as well as Luna and her younger sister Lia (Reign Parani). Harry and Kai are queer siblings who bring out the best in each other. Meanwhile, Luna is somewhat able to let her guard down whenever she talks to Lia, who lives in another country.

Interesting, Ben&Ben teases fans with cryptic billboards across Metro Manila

11:07:00 AM

 

This is probably interesting. Cryptic billboards and posters around the Metro and its alluding to a new Ben&Ben release have recently appeared in strategic locations all over Metro Manila.


The material, which contains discarded film photos with texts exposing some personal thoughts, is said to be part of the lyrics of an upcoming Ben&Ben song to be released sometime next week.

A few days ago, the nine-piece Filipino collective tweeted what looks like a snippet of lyrics offering an intimate take on the painstaking process of letting go. Ben&Ben also dropped a performance video of “Stand By You,” featuring Indonesian superstar Pamungkas. The collaborative visuals, which were recorded earlier this month at SoundCheck Studio, have racked up more than 220,000 views as of press time.

Set to conquer the international stage with their first North American tour, the Paninindigan Kita music act will be performing in iconic and key venues across nine cities in the US and Canada—ahead of their send-off concert on September 3 at the CCP Open Grounds.

When Music Means Something Else: Checking some Lines in the Song Narda

10:12:00 AM

 

If you love listening to bands, specifically rock bands, then you've probably heard the group named Kamikazee. Originally, the term kamikaze was a Japanese term for Japanese Special Attack Units of military aviators who flew suicide attacks for the Empire of Japan against Allied naval vessels, which happened during the 2nd World War. And that's a fact that happened.

But, if you're pronouncing Kamikazee with a double letter "e" at the end it's a play of words that describes "kami kasi" or is translated as "it's because of us."

Kamikazee band emerges during 2000, a Filipino rock band originally known all throughout its career as a quintet composed of Jay Contreras, Jomal Linao, Led Tuyay, Puto Astete, Bords Burdeos, Jian Lubiano, and Mikki Jill. Some of their albums are Kamikazee, Maharot, Long Time Noisy, and Romantico.


 
Anyway, we just introduced the band but the interesting part is one of their songs that made a hit in the airwaves, entitled "Narda." Especially now that the Darna series started.

Narda is the human character of the Superheroine, Darna, but for Kamikazee it is one of their songs under the Album "Maharot." A song themed about unrequited aspiration and love for the character Darna.

Though the song may have its wholesome image, there is a specific part of the song that is considered a double meaning. Taken from its album title "Marahot," which means playful or flirtatious, it probably has that notion to play with the idea.

The specific part gives reader a wild imagination on its meaning.

"Sa likod ng mga tala
Kahit sulyap lang, Darna"

If you're in your teens this has probably given away its meaning. Translated literally to fit what it deems to be the meaning, "Behind or beyond the stars, even just a glimpse, Darna." Does Darna fly beyond or behind the stars? Probably not, and what about the glimpse, can you really see Darna if she passes behind the stars? I think not again. So, what does the line means? If you're really an avid fan of Darna, what does she wear? She commonly wears a two-piece costume and if you're observant enough what design can you see on the upper piece of the costume? A "star," so if you do the math you'll land on what's behind the stars. It may sound perverted, obscene, or something else but that's what it intends if you have a playful mind. 

Not really sure if that particular line is intentionally created to give a double meaning or if it was just a random line. But if you're really drop-dead admiring Darna that would a thing to consider.

Again, the song is created under the album title "Maharot," so, it would be bad to think of flirtatious or kinky ideas with the song.

 

Well, will just have to find it out from the writer himself, if they thought of that in mind while writing the song. For now, let's make our minds go wild for a while.

The Darna series has started and Narda has shouted "Darna" and shows her first transformation. I think the song Narda of Kamikazee would not be applicable in this version of Darna because Ding is introduced as her sibling. 

If you have not heard of the song, I'm not sure where you are if you didn't, you'll definitely enjoy it. You can check it on youtube, spotify or other platforms.

Any Name’s Okay navigates the growing pains of adulthood in new EP, Leaving Home

6:28:00 AM

 

Filipino alternative pop band Any Names Okay has finally dropped their much-awaited sophomore EP, Leaving Home via Sony Music Philippines. Taking a huge step forward in terms of musical and creative direction, the 6-track release digs deeper into the journey of navigating adulthood and embracing the uncertainty that comes with the process.

“As a band, we’re maturing in our songwriting and the way that we operate as creatives,” shares the five-piece outfit. “We want to grow old with our listeners—which can be scary, but very exciting. A lot of those fears and joys can be found in this collection of songs.”

Lyrically, the band’s new EP, Leaving Home expands on introspective and existential themes—sometimes rendered in emotionally blunt details, but most of the time, exhibiting some of the growing pains that one has to go through in their transitional period towards maturity. The promising newcomer explains, “We’ve all been through the wringer the last few years, and this was a much-needed emotional release for everyone. We believe that a thorough listen of the EP, however, still shows that same heart, energy, and sincerity that people have come to know of us.”

Its focus track “Takbo” is one of the standout cuts in the EP as it tackles breaking free from the socio-economic fatigue that is burnout and hustle culture. According to the band, the song is all about running for running’s sake: playing with the imagery of aching muscles and exhausting activities, with its destination and goal to no avail. “While the song is an ode to the tired and tireless self, the reprise that it ends with is dedicated to hope— the hope that this is all for something, that you grow stronger the more you run,” Any Name’s Okay points out.

The release of the song comes with a visual that encapsulates the feeling of weightlessness in all that running. Helmed by Miko Reyes, the music video depicts “a person floating in and out of their world.”

The Yugto band adds, “Familiar to a lot of us, we can feel lost even in the happiest of places. Similar to the track itself, the end shows that there is a point to all the running; it just takes a bit of time to recognize it.”

Leaving Home is written and produced by Any Name’s Okay themselves, but with the help of their long-time pal, Luigi Del Rosario for one of their singles, “Limbo.” Frequent collaborator Tim Recla and Nick Azurin also mixed and mastered all the songs in the EP, respectively, giving it a more gossamer-sounding vibe.

Leaving Home Track list:
1.Yugto
2.Snooze
3.Limbo
4.Takbo
5.Today I Want To Live
6.Discovery

The EP launch happening on August 20, 2022 at Dirty Kitchen (Gravity Art Space), Quezon City is already sold out. But for those who would be joining the band as they perform the tracks from the EP live, you’re in for a treat.

“We’ve prepared some secret performances that you’ll just have to wait and see,” says Any Name’s Okay. “Showgoers will be getting first dibs on our brand-new merchandise, as well as get the chance to join our giveaways. We’re definitely doing our best to make the launch equally as exciting for everyone there!” Any Name’s Okay’s second EP, Leaving Home is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Philippines. Watch the music video of its focus track “Takbo” here.
