This new year comes with a new normal—and for style aficionados like you and me—new colors of the year! Before 2020 ended, Pantone released Ultimate Gray and Illuminating as 2021’s official colors; and described them as “a marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.”
Sleigh bells are ringing but we’re still in the midst of fighting COVID-19. Now is the perfect time to gift your loved ones peace of mind. With the virus still going on around, a simple facemask won’t really guarantee your safety and protection. Don’t worry, we’ve made it all easier for you.

Working at home during gloomy weathers may be extremely difficult because it gets quite tempting to just bundle up in our blankets and lay in bed all day. Waking up to a cold breeze just makes us want to stay cocooned and dread getting up to work.
The key to finding balance in comfort and productivity is to dress up as if you’re going to work, even if you’re just staying within the four corners of your home. Putting on a nice outfit turns your Work Mode on because it will make you feel like you’re setting up some sort of boundary between work and play.
Medical and non-medical masks are expanding their options to accommodate fashion-forward consumers. This makes it easier for you to mix-and-match your OOTDs. The only thing you’ll have to deal with now is what color to choose from! Lucky for you, we’ve already compiled different options for you to choose from.
This pandemic has challenged the whole world and forced everyone to stay within the four corners of our homes. This makes it extremely harder to look for gift ideas. While giving protective personal equipment may not be the most aesthetic choice, it is definitely what is more ideal right now; because what else is better to receive than the gift of safety?
The foreseeable future suggests that masks are here to stay for a relatively long time since the virus is seen to spread possibly through tiny droplets in the air—all the more reason to invest in a good collection of masks.
In this coronavirus era, your OOTD is incomplete without your face mask. Wearing one essentially helps prevent the spread of infection and could eventually prevent you from contracting any airborne infectuous germs. These particles are released when someone talks, coughs, or sneezes. If you want to know the best control strategy is to control cross-contamination, wear a mask.
Face shields are now made mandatory in commercial establishments like malls and parks. This makes it even more difficult for the vast majority of Filipinos. And I know what you’re thinking: “This will totally ruin my whole look!” Don’t worry because we’ve got you covered–literally.
Since surgical masks don’t come in different sizes, they usually come off loosely on the face and it could become pretty uncomfortable for the user. Luckily, some designers were quick on their feet to think of a solution for this.
These face masks are advised for the foreseeable future but there is no way we’re letting them ruin our OOTDs. Luckily for you, we found the perfect way to incorporate them into our outfits.
How? By adding color.
As we learn more about COVID-19 each day, we’ve come to realize that it could affect our bodies in more ways than one.

With the recent easing of lockdown restrictions, businesses are starting to open up again. This is now far off from the previous quarantine protocols wherein people were prohibited to go to their offices and work from home was required. Now, businesses are trying?—albeit struggling?—to go back to normal.
Our way of life has taken an unprecedented shift, and most of us are still struggling to adjust. But the best thing that we can do right now is accept our new reality, and start letting go of our old normal. Time to settle with working from home, social distancing and facemasks—the new normal.
To help address the needs of thousands of Filipinos whose lives are affected by COVID-19, we started producing top-of-the-line PPEs that will enable our frontliners, as well as various organizations and private citizens, to easily acquire these items for their own personal use.
