It’s a printed matter! We kick off this summer with color and prints (lots of it!). For Rustan’s Culte Femme, bold color is the new black this summer. As fashion flashes back to the decade of 1970s this season, we are offering you our hand-picked favorites inspired by this era. Aside from bold color choices, the retro vibe was amplified by an explosion of prints and patterns. There is also a bit of a tropical feel to the collection - it is for summer, after all - with palm-tree prints in full skirts to match ruffled camisoles. Our newest muse is a sexy and smart pin-up girl clad in 70s prints and silhouettes. She is bold when it comes to her color choices. Two prints at a time are very wearable when worn together either by a unifying element: by color or silhouette (or both!). We wanted to make it more modern by mixing up the looks more.

A new season means new must-haves! For daywear, take your pick from printed flowy camisoles, geometric high-waist shorts, haltered jumpsuits, and throw-on maxi dresses. Mix and match prints depending on your mood! The key look is a mishmash of prints for a bolder take on this season’s print and pattern play. Punctuate your look with wrap-around belts and waist-cinchers.

Channel your inner glamazon with the eveningwear pieces. Luxe dresses and jumpsuits were fluid and draped, reminiscent of the heyday of Studio54 with Jerry Hall as its fashion muse. For more fashion-forward femmes who want to take it up a notch, the metallic pieces can work well together with something printed. Whether your summer plans include a quick beach trip or hot summer nights in the cruise, create a sartorial statement with Culte Femme’s new collection this season.

Culte Femme is designed by Hindy Weber-Tantoco and is exclusively available at Rustan’s Makati, Edsa Shangri-La,  Alabang Town Center and Gateway.
