>Louis Claparols x Ensembles Holiday Collection

September 17, 2010

>Before anything else, let’s get to know the man behind the designs..Louis Claparols (pronounced as Louie) is one of the most celebrated fashion designers today. He’s the elected president of Young Designers Guild (YDG), he once co-owned a vintage store in Rockwell called Marni’s Room, and is now collaborating with Ensembles for a capsule Holiday collection.

He rose to fame with his collection of embellished jeans which further evolved to making sportswear-inspired clothing. But he always surprises everyone at every fashion show he’s part of and shows the audience something new.

It’s very interesting how some people just know that fashion is in their blood right? It just shows where the passion and the drive comes from. VERY INSPIRING! Well, This is a very interesting 17 piece collection. It’s very interesting cause looking at all the clothes I remember everything I studied in class. Words like Art-Deco, retro and the like are words I heard numerously through out my first term in SoFA (I wonder what I’ll be learning this next term)! With their celebrity endorser and ambassador, Carmina Villarroel, I’m sure this will be a very interesting project!With the success of Ensembles by Debbie Co Collection Series last year, we’re bringing in another talented designer to the series this year. Ensembles is delighted to bring on board one of the most celebrated fashion designers today, Louis Claparols, for its special Holiday Collection.

Claparols Holiday 2010 Collection for Ensembles consists of very art-deco dresses, tops, skirts, boleros and trench coats. Each piece in this special pocket-collection features distinctive retro-feel prints made into cut-out patch detailing that one can see how intricate and how much passion was put in every piece of this beautiful collection. Louis used colorful stretch fabrics with a mix of prints in the details, making the pieces look crisp and flattering.

It’s very interesting how some people just know that fashion is in their blood right? It just shows where the passion and the drive comes from. VERY INSPIRING!

Here’s a sneak peek into his collaboration with Ensembles, you’ll definitely see the whole retro art-deco inspired look of his collection! So cool! (click on the photo to enlarge):
