Rockin' with Call It Spring

MANILA, Philippines - Call It Spring’s latest collection allows people to express themselves, hang out with nothing but music in their hearts — whether they live for rock, shimmy to hip-hop, or dance to the DJ’s heavy bass line — and draw inspiration from the places and faces along the way.

Always blending the personal and the poetic, the campaigns play in the thoughts and dreams of this generation while catering to people’s need for individuality.

This season is all about the music, the “band aids,” the super-fans and the artists who light up the night. Revive your passion for deafening riffs and blinding spotlights: there is a rock star in all of us. All we need is the inspiration to let it shine through. Call It Spring’s F/W ’12 trends bring out the best in you this season.

The Folk Wave trend embraces all cultures and an urban celebration of outdoorsy styles — thick, chunky suede and old scuffed leather rendition that comes in a mix of rich rust and woodsy brown hues, leafy greens, poppy reds, and topaz blues. Matching this autumnal color palette are the Incan, Afghan and Texan prints, combined patterns and inspirations from far and wide.

This cool Southwestern spin nods to chukkas and gaucho boots that will certainly keep you warm and stylish this season’s biting moments. The multicultural attitude comes in distressed materials, synthetic nubuck, vegetable leathers, and ethnic print. The whole point of this trend is to bring your nature-loving fuzzy feelings to the fore.

Playful Glam takes cue from the roaring ’20s, embracing flashy sequins and glitter, sumptuous fabrics and diamond-dripping glamour. This trend combines flashy shoe silhouette lustrous mile-high heels, and sleek spit-shined brogues. All these were inspired from the secret of true style — that it knows no border, no times zones and no limits, lending the shoes their standout look.

While a shimmering pair of heels is the perfect choice for the upcoming festivities this season, get head-over-heels on Call It Spring’s lace shooties and rhinestones elements. Adding sparkle to any look, this trend muses that all you need is an opulent attitude and some bright shiny things to know that it costs nothing to live in the lap of luxury.

High Performance Chic walks the line between sophisticated (in look) and athletic (in spirit) materials taking you from the boardroom to date night with ease. This trend reflects the needs of city life, suave and modern.

Considered as the big brother of mod, the styles radiate dark muted hues like bronze, gray, nude, black with touches of indigo and red. Similarly, this trend still places a premium on performance, technical materials and an urban perspective paving way for that slick look. Don’t forget those metallic accents that result in a truly stellar pair of heels. Pointed toes, high-tops, concealed wedges, and vulcanized soles are some more essentials for a city-dweller.

While most of today’s heels are suited for after-hours or off-duty affairs, a handful of sophisticated yet comfortable and athletic daytime-appropriate options are available too. Whether it’s super elegant or a bit more playful, Call It Spring always loves to inspire and see you rocking those amazing pairs.

Call It Spring’s assorted range is available at Ayala Center Cebu, Greenbelt 3, Harbor Point, Robinsons Place Manila, Newport Mall and TriNoma.
