When it comes to exciting brand collaborations, Plains & Prints has definitely got it in the bag. From their special collection with Vania Romoff, to making the little girl inside me squeal with the limited edition Barbie Collection (an event I attended last year), to a tropical paradise with Aranaz (another launch I attended a few months back), it amazes me every single time they announce a new brand collaboration, because when you think about it, it always makes sense—the two brands complement one another and share the same philosophy of elegance and timelessness! And it’s no different with the newest collaboration they launched last July 25—a capsule collection with renowned Filipino fashion designer, Mark Bumgarner, known for his structured yet feminine designs that really speak to my sense of style.
I remember meeting Mark back in 2011 or 2012 during a MEGA event, and since then, he’s grown into one of the most sophisticated fashion designers of today. I’m a forever lurker of his Instagram account, because all the pieces that he posts never fail to take my breath away. So when I found out that he was coming out with a capsule collection with Plains & Prints, I couldn’t not go to the launch!
As expected, his designs did not disappoint. I had my eye on two pieces in particular—a tropical-inspired skirt, and a floral dress that I already want to get my hands on. The collection will be available starting August 3, so if you guys want to see it for yourselves, head on over to the nearest Plains & Prints store!
