I've known Fossil for a long time, with my St. Scho busmates donning a leather bag for school or a sleek watch - both too cool and seem to be must-haves even during the 90s. But I started appreciating the brand when I went to the States 2 years ago, and bought a long red leather Fossil wallet and a white watch. I love them both for their timeless design and good quality. It felt good to own them!
Anyway, yesterday Fossil Philippines invited people to their Shangri-La Mall store to welcome Fall 2015. I'll let you in on the festivities that afternoon...
The moment I entered the venue, there were lines to the caricature artists who created the cartoon version of the guests' faces in the classic Fossil tin cans. Cool!
The theme for the day was to wear something that will spark curiosity. There were guests who went YOLO and all-out:
Food and drinks were overflowing:
Inside the store, it was jam-packed with people who want to check out the yummy leather and watches:
I love Fossil wallets!
The Fossil team welcomed us, and introduced us to the brand and the new collections. Thank you for having us!
Fossil Fall 2015: Watches
For Fossil Fall 2015 Watches, there's a style made for just about everyone. The (His) Everyday Watch showcases vintage inspired timepieces with Roman numeral markers, stainless steel, and soft leather - made to get better with time. Del Rey Sport, meanwhile, has the athletic appeal. Nate chronograph and Modern Machine capitalizes on the military-camo trend.
For the ladies, (Her) Boyfriend Watch borrows details from menswear sensibilities. Original Boyfriend is perfect even for women who wants the more tomboy style. The Perfect Boyfriend comes in an almond leather strap with rose gold dial, while Jacqueline and Tailor are both more feminine. Modern D-Luxe is Fossil's limited edition, with only 754 pieces produced!
Fossil Fall 2015: Leather
(His) Workbag consists of leather pieces that are both timeless, practical, without being too serious. They have the Aiden messenger bag, Gordon khaki "man-purse", and the Estate backpack - both practical, easy to carry, and a smart choice.
(Her) Crossbody, meanwhile, are bags inspired by vintage binocular cases and camera bags from the 50s and 60s. The Preston satchel as the season's it-bag, Emerson satchel, Fairfax flap clutch, and Vickery backpack are all functional and classy - all perfect for traveling or work.
Everything's nice it's so hard to choose!
The Fossil store is spacious and inviting. I love the tin wall!
And, of course, the event's highlight for me is being with lots of my blog friends - old and new!
