Rustan’s asserts its place as the premier one-stop shopping destination for all things cool and fashionable for the hot summer months.

 

In its Spring-Summer 2014 presentation dubbed “Color It Summer,” recently held at the poolside of Raffles Hotel in Makati, creative director Inno Sotto sent out three sets of vibrant collections from the department store’s house and global labels: Island White, Pool Party and Cruise.

 

There were swimwear and beachwear from Michael Kors, Ella Moss, Seafolly and the house brand Uswim. Beach cover-ups came from Sinequanone and Culte Femme, with kaftans from Natori and Emilio Pucci, as well as new collections from Halston Heritage, Elie Tahari and Rachel by Rachel Roy.

 

Female models also donned summery purses by Rafe, Stella McCartney and Rebecca Minkoff, and accessorized with jewelry from Tiffany & Co., Carrera y Carrera, Yvel and Roberto Coin. They were shod in footwear by the likes of Coach and Lady Rustan’s.

 

The men were laid-back and dapper with linen jackets, cotton button-ups and shorts from brands like Hackett, Oleg Cassini, Façonnable and Wolf Design. They wore timepieces from
