After two successful runway features, Ellis Co is preparing to unveil another line of unconventional outfits that defy traditional fashion norms, celebrating individuality and self-expression.
The highly anticipated collection from Ellis Co is scheduled to take place at the Midas Hotel and Casino, and is poised to deliver the brand’s signature bold statement. By seamlessly merging street culture with high fashion and minimal aesthetics, the collection promises a captivating blend of edgy designs and urban influences.
Ellis Co’s next fashion show will revolve around his ARC 02 collection. Dubbed as the “Digital Oasis”, Co’s upcoming show will feature 44 unique looks that embody a new form of contemporary elegance. Each look is meticulously tailored to perfection, showcasing clean lines, sleek silhouettes, and an understated sophistication that captivates the eye.
Ever since its inception in 2022, .ARCHIVES has been turning heads in the industry. As a fashion brand featuring unconventional, avant-garde, and unique designs, each garment from .ARCHIVES tells a distinct story, challenges norms, and breaks free from traditional fashion molds.
One of .ARCHIVES’ earliest yet significant milestones was its showcase during the prestigious Rakuten Fashion Week. As a notable participant in the show’s PH Mode X TYO last March 2023, Co’s collection garnered acclaim from the audience, solidifying .ARCHIVES as a brand to watch in the fashion world.
“Japanese culture has largely influenced my work from the get-go. When Rakuten Fashion Week happened, I realized how Tokyo is so fast-paced and cosmopolitan. Because of that, I had a heightened awareness of how a body moves underneath different kinds of fabric. It’s like poetry in motion, and that plays a very important role in my research and development of pieces,” said Co.
After his debut collection showcase in Japan, success seems to have followed .ARCHIVES back to the Philippines as they prepare to unveil their next collection. To give a truly immersive experience, .ARCHIVES collaborates with Misibis Bay Resort, a beautiful hideaway in Albay, where they can perfectly showcase their capsule collection that transcend traditional boundaries.
Renowned for its breathtaking venue and prestigious audience, the Misibis Bay Fashion Show attracts the crème de la crème of the fashion industry, making it the perfect platform for .ARCHIVES to showcase its unique and boundary-pushing designs.
“I just want to preface that all my collections are deeply personal. For this show in Misibis, the visual references are heavily inspired by various people I’ve met in my life,” he said. “These people are like archetypes in themselves, and so each look is going to be based on several of them and codified from their attitudes and style. So the message I’m trying to convey is how these people influenced me into the person I am now, literally and figuratively.”
With a track record of groundbreaking designs and visionary concepts, Ellis Co has garnered a loyal following of trendsetters and fashion enthusiasts who eagerly anticipate each new release. With the F/W 2023 Collection on the horizon, anticipation and excitement are building for the next chapter in Ellis Co’s fashion journey.
“We’re gearing up for our 2nd main show in Manila on July 28, which will feature our take on Futurism and Primitivism. Aside from this, we have a lot of upcoming projects and collaborations this Q3 and Q4 of 2023. We can’t divulge the specific details yet, but we’re definitely excited and grateful,” he added.
The future of .ARCHIVES indeed remains bright as the brand continues to redefine the fashion landscape with its visionary approach and unique perspective, one fashion show at a time. With each passing season, the brand has consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to innovation, creativity, and pushing the boundaries of what is considered possible in fashion.
Looking ahead, Ellis Co and .ARCHIVES are poised to expand its reach and influence, further cementing its position as a fashion trailblazer. With its ability to seamlessly blend art, design, and culture, the brand is well-positioned to make a lasting impact on the fashion world.
