Bags And Bikinis: Vacation Wear, Holiday Gift Ideas

Check out the latest resort wear and clutches you can take to your long weekend or sembreak beach trip, or purchase as gifts for your BFFs or self!

The great thing about living in a tropical place like the Philippines is having so many beaches to escape to whenever you need some R&R. If you're burnt out from all the working and studying you've been doing, you might want to think about planning a beach trip for either this sembeak or the upcoming long weekend (October 29 to November 1). To get you psyched, we give you a peek at some luxury beachwear and bags you can invest in--which, by the way, make great gifts for yourself or your best friends this Christmas!

Filipino swimwear brand Solara, founded by beauty queens Maggie Wilson-Consunji and Sandra Seifert, held an event at RepubliQ in Resort's World to unveil their Holiday 2011 Collection. They've updated the colors and styles from their previous collection and now offer resortwear like beach cover-ups and palazzo pants! The main event of the night, however, was the announcement of Solara's partnership with Malaysian luxury bag brand, KLutched.

Like Solara, KLutched is created by two friends with a passion for fashion, charity, and nationalism. Only a year old, their exotic skins and leather statement bags have already received international acclaim and were even presented at Paris Fashion Week!

The grand fashion show at RepubliQ featured noteworthy models like Beth Wilson, Samantha Lewis, Ms. Philippines Water 2010 Emmerie Cunanan, Ms. Resorts World 2010 Wendy Tabusalla, and Ms. Philippines Air 2010 Renee McHugh, each carrying one of the new KLutched bags while wearing the new Solara collection.

Incidentally, Solara's new line is named after holiday destination beaches, including Sabah and Penang in Malaysia, while KLutched's bags are named after popular cities around the world, including Makati!

Launch the gallery now to see the double fashion show of Solara and KLutched's newest collections, as well as the famous guests we spotted!


Solara swimwear is available online at www.solaraswimwear.com. KLutched bags are available at Mix, Greenbelt 5 in Makati City.
