PVR BARBER thumb final.jpg

Today is my day off.

When I go to my favorite haunt.
Where it's peaceful.

Where I can be myself.
With things I love.
A bottle of juice and a book I haven't read.

Some say books may become obsolete.
For me, they'd never die.
They know the history of the world, both real and imagined.
They recall the stories people forget.

They've held more lives than could ever have held them in return.

Books age beautifully.

No wonder I'm a librarian.

It feels like I've been one forever.

But it's time to turn the page.
Time to go.
I'm getting thirsty.
The sun is bad for the skin anyhow.

Day off.

PVR DAY OFF THUMB FINAL.jpg

I grew up wanting to build something from nothing.
A farmer with field crops, orchards, and gardens.
Watching the bees swarm, I saw so much potential, so much to keep.
When the drones absconded, things started to change.
These days, I sometimes feel like a farmer.
I work in a field lined with test tubes.
Hovering over my blue chip honey cell;
the only drones that buzz, are watching me.
Some hive.

SERVING CAKES
I wear an apron.
But I just couldn't cut it as a baker.
In Brooklyn, as in Berlin,
my cakes were the wurst.
So, I pound and cleave my meat.
A brat, encased in frustration, serving you cakes.

The Professional Collection for 2015 is about notions of adulthood from generations past compared to those of today.
This translates to fashion as conceptual workwear.

SPACE SAVER

When I grow up I want to be an astronaut.
With my bayong on my back, I am packed.
In this neo-primitive space age of ancient aliens, I am an astro - not.
Lunar tic toc, tic toc.
The fabric of spacetime is textured like those orbs.
Hand-stitched embroidery and applique, machine quilted and patch worked.
Time travel only takes reflection.
In neoprene and Scotchlite flare.
I manifest meditation.
Astral project-ion.
Creating this, my vision quest.

The Professional Collection for 2015 is about notions of adulthood from generations past compared to those of today.
This translates to fashion as conceptual workwear.

After a 13-year hiatus, we created as we had, on location in Manila, Philippines.
From the modern and literally clean representation of the Filipino home (in our last film, Deep Conditioning), we go to this historical ruin, Kasa Boix.
It is soon to be restored as a community center/creative space, returning our heritage today.

The Professional Collection for 2015 is all about notions of adulthood from generations past and how they relate to those of today.

After a 13-year hiatus, personal circumstances arose allowing us to create as we had, on location in Manila, Philippines.

Our second art piece continues the theme and features a design that is part Coco, part Hannibal, and all Stepford.

Deep Conditioning, stems from the role of housewife, with all the delirium and desperation, tinker and toil, and the small wonders these dirty jobs bring.

High efficiency, high maintenance, high fashion, mad skills, muse.

She is not an appliance however caring, carrying, caregiver, carrie.

Nobody's trophy nor bitch. Bewitched. Bothered and bewildered.

Stay-at-home mom, full-time, part-time, making a career out of it.

Who's the Boss?

Dedicated to all the lolas.
