Eclectic dreams

Fashion  /   /  By Francesca de la Cruz

Textures, a tailored aesthetic, bold silhouettes, and varied references—designer Sofie Borromeo-Alvarez’s ‘Garden with Wings’ collection puts her understated label Sofie.B on the Philippine fashion map.

Find your match

Striking proportions and texture play are balanced by femininity. Pick a style and choose the fabric you fancy, as the brand encourages you to get creative 

Taking flight

The collection, inspired by a butterfly and its metamorphosis, embeds nature’s flora and fauna in its meticulous embroidery.

Looking back

Sofie.B’s signature back details take on prints and bolder textures for maximum impact.

Tying it up

Monochromatic pieces of varied textures and lines are harmonized by eye-catching accents.

Power of two

Solid-colored separates make a bold statement. Combine textures and shapes to make monochromatic ensembles even more striking.
