By | Fashion, Health and Fitness | No Comments

So happy to see Jenny and her son Allen Litton Navasero. BAC by Allen (6)I got so excited because Allen concocted his own essential oils. He has only 2 oils – Thieves and Lavender. He made it first for himself and because it was so effective friends and family were buying it from him. He sources his oils from Bali. He says Thieves is for your immune system but it can be for many other sicknesses so its a must have so i bought!! Love his packaging. BAC by Allen (1)BAC by Allen (3)BAC by Allen (4)BAC by Allen (2)His main product is really his clothing line which he is still working on. @bodies.as.clothing The essential oils are just part of the clothing brand he is developing. Allen graduated from Urban studies in Cornell. After which he studied Fashion futures ( Sustainable fashion ) in London College of Fashion – (collaborates with Kering group – Gucci, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent). If theres sustainable travel, sustainable food, Allen is into sustainable clothing. He believes that your skin absorbs whats in your clothing so his line will use organic cotton, 100% biological and the colors is all natural ( from plants ) sourced from Bali. So watch out for this guy ? Go here to order his essential oils @bodies.as.clothing You need to go to the link in his bio to get to his website and fill up the order form #h2hpeople#h2hessentialoils #bodiesasclothing

KNOWLEDGE COTTON APPAREL BRINGING KNOWLEDGE FORWARD

By | Fashion, What's New at Rustan's | No Comments

KNOWLEDGE COTTON APPAREL
BRINGING KNOWLEDGE FORWARD

The story and success of Danish menswear brand Knowledge Cotton Apparel is built on three equally important factors: Curiosity, perseverance and care. These three factors not only form an important part of the company’s history, but also of its future.

The fringe benefit of mistake

”It all started in an old fire station in 1969 with a second-hand knitting machine my father and I had brought home from England. I was 21 years old, and I knew absolutely nothing about textiles. But I was taught the hard way – by making and fixing my own mistakes”, Jørgen Mørup tells.

It is the takeaways from these mistakes that today form the corner stone of Knowledge Cotton Apparel. Knowledge makes you smarter and makes you equipped to make better decisions. And more importantly, sharing your knowledge can make a real difference. Rather than keeping to ourselves everything we have learnt through our years in the business, we are committed to sharing our knowledge – to create a positive change for our planet.

Why?

Two people will collectively know more than one.

Three will know more than two.

And when we have a large football field full of smart people sharing knowledge, just imagine what we will be able to accomplish.

A passion for quality

”Despite starting with an old, second hand machine, as business progressed, I saw the advantages of technology”, explains.

Technology is a lot like knowledge. It evolves and makes what was once difficult easier. And Jørgen Mørup spent hours searching for new technology and ideas that would help to increase his business.

“Both technology and time mean something very special to me. Quality takes time. I believe in an original and natural product, and this is the root of my love for cotton. I am inspired by the simplicity and honesty of a fiber that is planted as a seed and harvested as a plant over time”.

Pioneering organic fashion in Denmark

At the end of the 1980s, Jørgen Mørup began working with organic cotton. And in 2008, together with his son Mads Mørup, Jørgen Mørup founded Knowledge Cotton Apparel, a clothing line for men that uses eco-friendly textiles.

KNOWLEDGE COTTON APPAREL (1)

Just like small cotton seeds, Knowledge Cotton Apparel is on a journey of growth. The company has taken the best from its heritage and interpreted into a contemporary and sustainable business strategy. The philosophy is clear: Always believe and stand firm on your principles. We may never reach what we dream for, but the path we take to reach our dreams is where real change is made.

BRAND PHILOSOPHY

We believe in challenging the status quo. We do so by using Organic and sustainable materials and by exploring the undiscovered. We create inspiring designs that never compromise neither comfort nor quality and by using cutting edge technologies that embrace sustainable fibers and manufacturing techniques.

Our brand philosophy is centered on the core elements of-

GAIN KNOWLEDGE.

TAKE ACTION.

EARN RESPECT.

In the Philippines, Knowledge Cotton Apparel is exclusively available at Rustan’s Makati and Shangri-La.

My first ever collection, Style Cat Resort: Take Me To Purradise is inspired and named after by MUST-SEE destinations: Aruba (southern Caribbean), Calaguas (in the Philippines), Santhiya (in Thailand), Port Douglas (in Australia) and Uluwatu (in Bali.) I love the idea of using locally sourced material (such as traffia, abaca, banukan) and seeing products made by our incredibly talented artisans. I wish everyone who sees the Style Cat bags already imagine their next adventure, their next travel goal – after all, its meow or never.”Style Cat (3) Style Cat (8) Style Cat (11) Style Cat (2) Style Cat (10) Style Cat (7) Style Cat (9) Style Cat (6) Style Cat (5) Style Cat (4) Style Cat (1)
