The Apollo Has Landed | Clozette

Canadian brand Native gives hypebeasts, stylephiles, and sneakerheads a reason to rejoice with its new shoes--the Apollo. Their latest innovation to the market banks on the concept of a moccasin, the most classic footwear silhouette known to mankind, and constructed it to another future classic. With simplicity and “keep it lite” as guiding principles, Mark Gainor, Native’s Creative Director, ensured that the focus will only be on the essentials. The result is a totally familiar footwear made fresh and new by injecting Native’s quintessential futuristic touch.

Native has indeed modernized the classic moccasin and desert boot with the introduction of the Apollo Moc and Apollo Chukka. Each Apollo shoe also boasts of the Anti-Gravity feature where grounding rubber are inserted, giving traction where it is needed most. The Apollo is absolutely shock absorbent to put a little spring onto one’s step.   

Clozette recently got a sneak peek of the Apollo shoe and even got to see an astronaut happily lounging around the venue. Here is a shot of GlamAsia's Features Editor, Alexandra Lapa and Female Network's Ira Nopuente, with the astronaut during the launch party. 

Clozette also got to view other rubber shoes from Sneek Peek, a store based in Manila for sneakerheads and stylephiles alike. And oh, here's another photo of Clozette's Country Sales Director (Philippines), Jay Ramirez, with Apollo's resident astronaut. It was one great night!

Step into the future and out into the cool space with Native's newest design – the Apollo!

March is the start of the Spring season, also known as the pre-summer time where bold colours and prints are everywhere. But there are fashionistas that go against the crowd and stay true to their personal style. Such is our Featured Fashionista for this month, Roxy Sibayan! Known as itsjustroxy here on Clozette, she posts edgy looks with a pop of print and colour. Whatever she wears is a fun interpretation of where she came from---Manila. 

Let's get to know this Pinay fashionista even more through her journey in fashion, blogging, and her favourite Spring looks! 


How did you get into fashion and blogging?

When I was a kid I loved dressing up my barbie dolls. I even remember shopping clothes for them. Then when I grew up, I ditched my dolls and started dressing up for myself. also made a huge impact in my fashion style. It was then that I confirmed that fashion is also my passion. I found friends around the site and they helped me out to put up a blog to share my outfit ideas.

Can you describe your style?

My fashion style depends on my mood but I also like to mix and match. I don't stick to one thing because it makes me feel like I'm a boring person, well except for pineapple-print clothes!

Which Spring/Summer fashion and beauty trend are you excited to try?

I never thought that eye liners are so in this season. I've been wearing those since---I don't know when. I can't go out without eyeliner on! But I am deeply excited to try wearing lipsticks because I rarely wear one. So I guess it's about time to try something new, especially something near the Marsala shade because it's the colour of the year right? I also can't wait to try out gingham printed clothes and military green shades for this season---though it's not that new. But who can forget the clothes of Cher on Clueless? I definitely can't.

Spring is such a fun-filled season, how do you make your outfits look fun?

Colour Matching, using accessories, and fearlessly layering prints! It'll definitely make your outfit stand out. And don't pressure yourself too much, wear whatever you feel comfortable in. 

What is your go-to Spring/Summer outfit?

Oh summer and spring are my favourite seasons! Though we don't have spring here in the Philippines, we still tend to adapt the fashion trends. I personally love wearing shorts and skirts! I pair it with anything! High-waist shorts plus cami and kimono, some boots and a fringe bag, then you're ready to go! Maxi skirts are also the best when you're at the beach, Pair it up with a cute bikini top and viola! 

What is your favourite makeup look for Spring/Summer?

A Light makeup look for me. MAC Studio fix foundation for the face, in2it liquid eyeliner for my cat eyes, a little bit of a bronzer, and just an EOS lipbalm for my lips. But I'm definitely going try something new for my lips this season.



February has been a fashion-filled month for us here in Clozette because of all your inspiring OOTD posts! For the past week we saw a lot of edgy, monochrome outfits, boots, and surprisingly--sneakers. It's good to see that the community is more open to trying out new styles. I guess we can expect great OOTDs from March as well! 

To cap off the month of February and officially start the month of March, here are 5 looks that we loved from the fashion community! 




We're a fan of Clozette Ambassador AnocoHannaMG's edgy casual looks; but this OOTD stood out most for its sporty feel. We are totally loving the genius idea of using an oversized jersey as a dress, pairing it with a cap, shades, and flats. Yup! Being petite has its perks. 



We've been eyeing on yesjune's style for quite a while now. She is more fond of the girl-next-door loo---so skirts and dresses are pretty much her thing. This particular skirt caught our fancy for its print and cut. The structured shape and print seems formal but she dressed it down with a soft blue top and slip-ons.



HLRYYS is such a glamorous dresser and she is able to make anything look more put-together---even a long denim jacket. And yes, her boots are worth gushing over. This K-style Kim Hye-inspired look definitely stood out, and we hope to see more looks like this soon. 



Who knew you could wear black on sunny days? It's possible with Clozetter itsjustroxy! Her floppy hat, t-shirt dress, and boots complement each other perfectly. And to break the monotony, she styled the look with silver accessories for a touch of bling.



Clozette Ambassador ssydneyho is usually seen in heels, dresses, and skirts; but last week, we saw her in a yellow romper and sneakers! The look was very casual-glam and fit for spring/summer season. 2015 is indeed the year to try something beyond your comfort zone!
