I was invited to attend the launch of Burton which also coincided with the 10th anniversary of Dorothy Perkins in the Philippines. Not one to miss the opportunity to see what’s going on in the retail scene, I made my way over to SM Mega Fashion Hall to see what the new menswear store had to offer.
Manly refreshments were served of course
NIXDAMNP! provided the music for that afternoon
I arrived a little earlier than everyone so I took a peek at what the models would be wearing for the fashion show downstairs.
Lots of great textures and prints
Who says summer is over?
Got back to the party and was impressed with the attention to detail, right down to the menu
A great looking tee
In true mod fashion, an olive parka was in order
The smart section of the store
I loved that hoodie, will be back for it

Recognize the shirt?
Shamelessly joining and winning the contest!
Outfits were well-documented that day
Not only by the press but by the guests as well!
The Dorothy Perkins side had all sorts of confectioneries which I could hardly resist
History of the brand, style influences, and most importantly… another contest!
Paul got one!
Divine did too! Tingnan mo, ang saya niya diba?
Models escorted us towards the main hall where the show would be underway, nice touch.
So much easier to imagine the clothes on oneself when seen on models beforehand.

Checking out the girls’ reaction to the pieces. Photobomb by Dani Barretto
The trousers were cut a bit high, which in my opinion only works well on slimmer men. Case in point.
I like smiling eyed models, changes the mood don’t you think?
This photo took about 5 minutes because of the number of other cameras being handed to the guy taking the picture!
Burton is definitely going to be go-to when it comes to casual weekend wear, maybe even the jacket to wear on nights out. Will see in the coming months and collections! Thank you RSSI for inviting Divine and I!
