A symphony of kaleidoscopic spotlights in motion, a crowd filled with watchful eyes on the stage, and anticipation for a fashion show you can’t miss -- what better way to hype up a new collection than to bring in the newest PENSHOPPE ambassador all the way from Los Angeles to Manila?

Last 29th July 2016, PENSHOPPE made a lot of noise in the fashion scene by bringing one of their famed ambassadors to grace the runway for their pre-holiday collection at Conrad Hotel Manila: supermodel and Internet sensation, Lucky Blue Smith! Born and raised in a small town in Spanish Fork, Utah, the 6-foot-2 18-year old beauty started his modeling career at the age of 12 and has effortlessly made his way up the glittery steps of the modelling industry by working with big-time labels such as Bottega Veneta, Etro, Michael Kors, and Versace. And at the Conrad Hotel, he looked better than ever with his signature platinum blond hair and blue eyes casting spellbinding gazes towards the audience as he strutted down the catwalk.

With the “Rule The City” pre-holiday collection hitting stores today, it’s no wonder why Lucky was chosen as PENSHOPPE’s new ambassador. Combining laid-back and contrasting pieces, splashed with monochromatic colors and prints, the collection is a fresh set that puts the spotlight on the fundamental elements of every cool kid’s fashion statement – allowing each individual personality to shine.

Here’s a sneak peek of some of the chicest pieces from the collection!

The Millennial Layers



Tired of your repeating a T-shirt and jeans combo on casual days? Funk up your wardrobe by pairing your light-washed jeans with a pastel colored shirt, and finish it off with a monochromatic-coloured jacket. If you want to look more hardcore, get your ripped denims and sport this outfit with bangin’ confidence!



Ready to be urbanised? Pick out your favourite graphic tee, pair it with dark-coloured pants or trousers, and top it off with a white jacket or any outerwear that complements the overall look. Look classy and snazzy with this cool kid starter pack!


Pop Funk



Don’t be afraid to experiment with colours! Step out of your comfort zone and take an adventurous style in planning your outfit. Take an ombre or gradient tee and match it with navy blue jeans to nail that contemporary pop style and stand out in a crowd. If you’re ready to take it to the next level, you can add a neckerchief with the same shade as your tee to complete your comfy and modern look.


Plain and Plaids



Don’t put those plaids in the back of your cabinet because plaids are in this season! Match them with ripped black denims, a black hoodie, and your favourite kicks to achieve that chill and edgy style.

Making your way to work with your power outfit gives an extra boost of confidence. From finding the perfect blazer to putting together a great work OOTD, an ensemble that is empowering can make even the busiest of days fly by smoothly. But work outfits can only go as far as the pieces you have in your wardrobe. And shopping endlessly to prevent OOTDs from becoming repetitive is both expensive and inconvenient. 


There's no need to turn your closet inside-out to find an office-ready outfit. Check out our list of staples to give your work wardrobe a one-up without the added effort.

The clothing version of the red lipstick, getting a solid-coloured dress exudes a powerful and confidence-boosting vibe. Throw in a blazer or an accessory and you're already in for a new look. If you're looking for a versatile fashion piece that works for both the office and a casual day out, this is a definite must-have. 


A carry-all tote

Don't forget that a great work outfit is never complete without the right bag. A carry-all tote is not only stylish but also convenient for the all-around busy working girl. From your makeup bag to your laptop, keep everything safe and cosy without losing your cool by getting yourself one of these. 




A minimalist piece of jewelry

A simple chain necklace or a pair of studded earrings revamps a look in the most unexpected ways. Even the plainest work OOTD looks more polished with a hint of sparkle.






A bateau top

Instead of opting for a plain shirt underneath your blazer, go for a bateau instead. Whether you prefer pants or skirts, this nautical-inspired top is a perfect match. Plus, this versatile fashion piece stays chic and in-season all year round!
