Go boho for the holidaysBy Carmencita S. Sioson

Bag brand LeSportsac’s latest collection has the French label Manoush’s eclectic vibe. Manoush, which was founded by Frédérique Trou-Roy, is known for its off-kilter designs that would certainly give a unique touch to any ensemble.
With this collaboration, LeSportsac goes gypsy-chic with gargantuan ruffles, a heavy dose of sequins, dainty roses, and cool ripstop nylon.
The Fall 2012 collection, which will continue through the end of Summer 2013, features gypsy rose and bohème fleur prints, and three fabrics: black hamsa Manoush embroidery, metallic gold, and pink hamsa Manoush quilting on handbags, carryalls, totes, cross-body bags, small goods, and tech pieces.
On this spread, see how you can take this pretty arm candy from day to night with some on-trend styling.
LeSportsac is at Greenbelt 5, Rustan’s Makati, and Rustan’s Alabang Town Center.

Opt for a deeper shade of red, and keep the look interesting by pairing printed trousers with a lace blouse; a black cross-body bag with gold trimming tames the look.
