Fashion is the tarp over scaffolding. Worn out. 
Nets on bare bones. Bone structure.
Masking our skeletal architecture.
Constructing an identity.
Alluding body.
Always under construction.

PVR UNDER CONSTRUCTION BANNER WEB.jpg

There is a moment in time that lasts longer than you expect. There is a room in your house that is smaller than you think but larger than you know. There is a space to inhabit that is less comfortable than it should be. There is a meal that is waiting for you and getting warm. But first: close what is open.

AFTER THREE.

THE MARATUS COLLECTION TESTS A DEEP FEAR OF SPIDERS. BUT IF THERE'S ONE THAT BOTH ARACHNOPHOBES AND FASHIONISTS COULD BE CHARMED BY, IT'S THE FASCINATING MALE PEACOCK SPIDER AND ALL ITS SOCKS.
This video was filmed at Superchief Gallery LA during the release and art opening of our collaborator, Mike Diana.

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.

TEXT: I want a president
by Zoe Leonard, 1992

PVR Butcher thumb web.jpg

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.
An 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.

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, 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 this dirty job brings.
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.

We asked our community about today's most relevant hashtags, Taglish, and Millennial Twitter. The Top 30 user-submissions are presented as a collection of looks in this film, On Words. Each of these outfits are "spelled", using our ABAKADA designs. As seen in our film Alphabet Soup, the singular designs resemble a letter of the alphabet when laid flat. Living typography.

Viewed here, as an ensemble, these looks are labels
read literally and as layered, multi-faceted abstractions.

Filmed on location between NYC, Miami Beach and Wynwood, Florida.

PVR-ABAKADA-portrait-FINAL-WEB-640x640.jpg

Flood footage from PVR Headquarters in 'Evacuation Zone A' when "Frankenstorm" Sandy hit NYC is combined with US based artists Jason Corff and Joshua Seidner interpreting 2 Filipino folk dances' relation to the waters.

Pandanggo Sa Ilaw is a dance that has one maneuvering candles or oil lamps which are skillfully balanced on the head and palms as clapping, snapping, and stomping the beat goes faster and faster. Folk stories tell of these beacons of light guiding fishermen back to the shore after dark.

The Tinikling dance mimics the grace and agility of birds as they dodge rice farmers' traps, trees, and predators in the water.
Navigating the bamboo poles which strike open and closed against the ground (providing the percussive beat) requires accuracy and incorporates local martial arts.

Film Premiered at the Boston Center for the Arts February 12, 2013.


A haunting and subtly appropriate soundtrack:
Triduum (Three Days of Darkness) by Skint Eastwood available at Phantamsa Disques.
This track is also included among the 19 presented by 8tracks to weather the storm.


The featured designs fuse two icons: the American denim jacket or shirt/tie combo of Western culture with the Filipino Barong Tagalog from the Southeast.

This was filmed in the recent past for the near future of a long distance relationship between 2 people both wearing a top  from across the globe, a decade old, from our shore just one year ago, that hints at what is to come.

This land is your land, this land is my land...
This land was made for you and me...
As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing."
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.
In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple;
By the relief office, I'd seen my people.
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking,
Is this land made for you and me?...
This land is your land, THIS LAND IS MY LAND.
-excerpts from This Land Is Your Land by Woody Guthrie, 1940
