Christmas is fast approaching and it is indeed that time of the year to wear this season’s festive colors through Bayo’s 2016 Holiday Collection, featuring warm, playful and trendy pieces.
Inspired by classic children’s toys such as yoyos, slinkys, pick-up sticks, building blocks, puzzles, and toy soldiers, this year’s holiday collection is titled Style Harvest: A Playful Holiday showcases pieces with flattering silhouettes, cuts, and prints that will surely take every Filipina down the memory lane.
With timeless pieces such as tops, pants, skirts, and dresses, the latest collection features cheerful Christmas colors mainly blues, reds, yellows and greens.
Anna Lagon, Bayo’s creative director, said the team was inspired to create a collection that would bring out fun memories of childhood and that its holiday line of Style Harvest is memoir to every adult and young adults’ Christmas.
“We literally had a playful time while working on the various pieces along with the unique artworks, inspired by the iconic toys we have chosen; it did bring out the child in us. After all, this season, is the happiest time of the year not only for the young, but also for the young at heart,” Lagon said.
Bayo’s color palette was based on happy hues and shades that complement the season.
“Design sensibilities remain classic and elegant, which are all consistent with what Bayo is all about” Lagon said.
This year, Bayo is partnering with KIDS 4 Others (Kids in Dedicated Service 4 Others) to celebrate the season of giving. Part of the proceeds from this collection will go to the Concordia Children’s Services and Gentle Hands Inc.
Style Harvest is a collaborative brand of Bayo launched in 2013 promoting Filipino creativity. This brand also aims at helping communities and organizations by sponsoring projects that help cultivate Filipino talent and ingenuity.
Last year, Bayo collaborated with the Tourism Office of Pampanga that invoked the Filipino Christmas tradition by taking inspiration from the parols made by the artisans of San Fernando Pampanga. Bayo also made partnership with Virlanie Foundation, Inc. to support its mission to help less fortunate children. Both organizations foster the love for the Filipino and its heritage.
