There are many things that ring true about Bagasao: the effortless balance of reconstructed and deconstructed classics, the combination of contrasting textures that seamlessly fall right between nonchalant and elegant, and the rough hemlines that aren’t made to be questioned but simply made to be undone. And it goes without a saying, as a self-proclaimed modern woman, Bagasao has become a label that resonates to me and nonetheless, what I aspire to be. I’ve yet to achieve the same quiet confindence found in his pieces and incorporate that very notion into my personal style in the years to come.
I feel that I’ve reached a point where I’m passed making juvenile, spur of the moment decisions, bagging almost every nondescript trend that will come and go (my recent online garage sale proves just that) and have begun appreciating what investing in classics (wether reconstructed or deconstructed) can truly do for one’s defining look.
