By | SSI Group Inc | No Comments

Top models, socials and digital influencers were spotted in Milan wearing their TOD’S SELLA BAG last Milan Women’s Fashion Week.

Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, Krystal Jung, Linda Tol, Liu Wen, Mariacarla Boscono, Xenia Tchoumitcheva, Zhang Ziyi, Layla Monteiro, Faye Tsui, Diipa Khosla, Evangelie Smyrniotaki, Barbara Palvin, Edvig Opshaug, Sara Brajovic, Noor De Groot and Michelle Madsen are only a few of the international personalities seen in their #TodsSellaBag.Tod's Sella Bag (1) Tod's Sella Bag (3) Tod's Sella Bag (4) Tod's Sella Bag (2)From the meticulous construction of the shoes and handbags, TOD’S is the label par excellence for handmade accessories for men and women. The TOD’S warehouses store some of the finest leathers from the best tanneries in the world. Each leather hide is checked by our experts for imperfections. They monitor the colour, thickness and texture, so that they are uniform, and those hides that do not meet our high standards are rejected. Once the shoes are completed, every pair is carefully inspected and those that have the slightest defect are discarded.

Process is involved in the making of the bags: The production techniques are similar to those used by ancient saddle makers. Extreme skill and attention to detail is required for the cutting of the leather and the sewing of each style, as it is meticulously pieced together.Tod's Sella Bag (5)Like the new Sella Bag where Ribbing and stitching are a sort of contemporary metropolitan architecture rooted in a long history of genuine saddle craft.

In the Philippines, Tod’s is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., and is located at Greenbelt 4 and Rustan’s Shangri-La, Shangri-La Plaza. Follow @ssilifeph on Instagram for more information.

REP 50 GALA

By | Entertainment | No Comments

The grand musical gala to celebrate its milestone golden year, REP: 50 Years of Telling Stories culls Repertory Philippines or REP’s current roster of talents and acclaimed alumni to narrate the theater company’s story – from its beginnings, to its continuing efforts of nurturing the next generation of performing greats.

REP: 50 Years of Telling Stories encompasses all aspects of theater from the narration, music, choreography, producers, performers, comedians, set designers and directors,” says President & CEO Mindy Perez-Rubio. “It took a team of almost one hundred people to mount this production featuring seven segments with different directors.”

The show is one grand story told through song, dance and visuals with musical numbers from past REP productions such as A Chorus Line, West Side Story, Carousel, Camp Rock, Pippin, Annie, Sound of Music, Jekyll and Hyde, Seussical and Les Miserables.REP 50 GALA (2) REP 50 GALA (3) REP 50 GALA (5)Opening with a tribute to Zeneida “Bibot” Amador, the performance honors all the REP founders who built the company. It then transitions to the tradition of telling stories that are universal and appealing for every Filipino through choreographers, dancers and actors.REP 50 GALA (4)It also flows through the works of writers, musical directors and designers who make “magic” on and off stage, to the directors or the interpreters of the tales who ensure the stories are told well. The audience is also taken behind the scenes to discover the hard work of unsung heroes like production managers, stage managers and the like whose efforts are hardly seen. Another highlight is the telling of stories that educate young theater-goers through Repertory Theater For Young Audiences.

A fitting showcase brings the gala to a close, with young and upcoming Reppers taking over center stage as the veterans hand the baton to the new guards of Philippine theater.

This one-night only musical fittingly celebrates REP’s five decades of developing Filipino talents and staging excellent productions from Broadway and the West End. Bart Guingona serves as over-all director and collaborates with segment directors Jaime del Mundo, Miguel Faustmann, Audie Gemora, Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, Raymond Lauchengco, Freddie Santos, and Michael Williams as well as musical director Ejay Yatco and writer Luna Inocian. 

Theater luminaries and stars including REP co-founder Baby Barredo, REP Artistic Director Joy Virata, Monique Wilson, Franco Laurel, Sheila Francisco, Markki Stroem,Morisette Amon, Pinky Amador, Mitch Valdes, Ayam Barredo-Eckstein, Cara Barredo,Leo Martinez, Cocoy Laurel, EJ Villacorta and many more gather to#ComeHomeToREP.
