Freeway x Twinkle Ferraren's Hand Woven Summer Wear Collection

I cannot believe that it is already March. It only seems like yesterday when people greeted each other Merry Christmas. Here in the Philippines, summer unofficially starts in March, and it means that we need to be prepared for the endless beach escapades.

I am hopeful I will have the chance to experience beach life in another country. My team and I are still planning the staycation in Bali, so the first things I packed in my luggage are my swim suits.

Here's good news for all beach bums, Freeway collaborated with swimwear designer Twinkle Ferraren for its 2012 Swimwear Collection which features Hand Woven Collection. Ferraren's 3rd collaboration with Freeway is described as "feminine in action".

I love the theme of this collection! I am actually in search for a nice crocheted swimwear - yes, I know it will not give me much coverage, but I just thought crocheted swimwear is really classic and feminine. The collection features handwoven braids, weave designs and appliqué in sporty, active silhouettes with a hint of feminine details.  Her inspiration for this collection is her amazement with the great talent of our local weavers, the very intricate patterns and the passion that comes with it.  With a keen understanding of what women want, the collection does not sacrifice style and feminity no matter how active or sporty their lifestyle gets.

The collection is specially designed for women who are active and into sports (which unfortunately, I am not. I will try to be active this year).

With the successful handpainted collection for Freeway in the last few years, Ferraren ventures into another labor intensive beautiful application that makes each piece a keeper.  “As a designer, it is a task and an honor at the same time to bring to light the person’s inner beauty and unique personality whenever she wears your creations”, Ferraren answered when asked on how she applies life lessons to clothes and designing.

To complement the sporty chic swimwear collection by Twinkle Ferraren, and put a touch of sexiness, Freeway showcases wide array of beautiful cover-ups, hyperbright summer dresses, flirty tops and flattering bottoms.

Which one is your favorite?
