The second installment from GUESS Originals and A$AP Rocky’s collaboration is headed our way. Aptly named “Ice Cream and Cotton Candy”, the offering follows its inaugural launch, which was also complemented by its GUE$$ Club drop back in March.
The collection takes inspiration from the 80’s and 90’s, with spring/summer pastel hues on a number of the pieces. Its staple striped and co-branded T-shirts return while new color options enter the fold. You’ll also find a new striped dress in addition to a cropped version of its black and white co-branded tees.
Lead by A$AP Rocky and his creative group AWGE, the A$AP Rocky x GUESS Originals “Ice Cream and Cotton Candy” collection will launch on July 14 at GUESS SM City Cebu. Check out the looks from the collection below and click here to know the pricing of the items.
Create Cebu along with Crossroads Cebu, Qube Gallery, and Island Premium Paints presents “CEVOLUTIÓN,” a curated public art exhibit that explores the evolution of Cebu due to the rapid pace of growth and development in the city.
As a developing city like Cebu grows, so should its art and culture. Create Cebu’s aim is to create a more vibrant and livable Cebu through art, a culture of expression and collaboration, thus spearheading Cevolution.
The exhibit will feature the works of contemporary Cebuano artists KIDLAT, DAOT, Lean Reboja, Golda King, Ronyel Compra, and Ivan Zaldarriaga. CEVOLUTIÓN aims to highlight the diversity of imagination, skill, and talent of local artists as well as increase access to and awareness of Cebuano art. The project hopes to promote Cebu’s identity as a city destination for culture and the arts.

Chad Manzo, the graphic designer behind ‘The Sartorial Zone‘, and ‘This is Madness‘ is back with another design series called ‘Salty’. The author describes it as “a commentary on the influence of global street culture in the context of the Filipino.” Today’s technology has made the world smaller due to the fast and easy transfer of information over the internet. It no longer takes months, weeks, or days for any trend in the global community to reach the Philippines. We’re literally tuned-in up to the second to anything that happens around the world, and because of that, our music, fashion, and even media are highly influenced by a mostly western culture. In ‘Salty‘, the designer takes global trends and creatively combines them with things that we Filipinos are familiar with. Part comedic and part social commentary, Chad Manzo uses humor to show how we Filipinos have been so enamored with the global street/pop culture.
Take a look at the humorous and pun-filled renderings below. Which one is your favorite?
