Metro Manila (CNN Philippines Life, March 10) — Women’s Month-themed collections from Vans and Adidas, a new collection from COS, beauty picks from Clocheflame and Colourette, and more in this week’s style round-up.
Vans launches the Divine Energy Collection
This month, Vans is championing creative expression — no matter the gender, gender identity, race, or class. The new Divine Energy collection features Vans signatures adorned with patchwork designs reflecting the brand’s International Women’s Day advocacy of inclusion. 2.5% of every sale from the collection will be donated to the Tides Foundation.
For footwear, the patchwork designs represent communities coming together, and are featured on the Old Skool (₱5,498) and Classic Slip-On (₱4,498). The Divine Energy Sk8-Hi comes in black (men’s sizes at ₱6,998) and Lavender (kids sizes at ₱3,498) and features the words “lover, partner, friend, child, advocate, and teammate.” A key feature in this design is the inclusion of both the non-binary and female symbols on the shoe’s leather upper.
The collection is available at select Vans stores nationwide. For more information, visit @vansphilippines on Instagram.
Adidas Bra Revolution features a re-engineered sports bra collection
Adidas has re-engineered its entire sports bra portfolio to cater to more bodies and workouts. Backed by several research, development, and testing stages, the new Adidas Sports bra collection features four types catering to different levels of breast support: the Everyday bras for lounging, Studio bras for low-intensity workouts such as yoga, Train bras for HIIT and other intensive workouts, and Run bras for running and similar high-support activities.

Clocheflame releases Dream Filter
Despite being a well-loved base product in the Philippine market, pressed powder isn’t as popular an option these days as loose setting powders and liquid foundation. Homegrown, women-owned beauty brand Clocheflame is updating the beauty staple with Dream Filter, a pressed setting powder made with grapeseed oil and other skin-loving ingredients meant to leave a silky and glowy finish. The SPF 15 product promises to blur lines, subtly color-correct and highlight features, and has been tested to work for sensitive skin.
The Clocheflame Dream Filter is available via Lazada, Shopee, and Zalora.
Colourette releases new shades for their Mini Colourtints
Local beauty brand Colourette Cosmetics recently released five new shades in their Mini Colourtint collection: Rosa (muted wine), Isla (neutral nude), Maddie (rosy plum), Lola (rosy coral), Maya (light cinnamon brown). Sold at ₱149 each, the Colourtints are multi-use oil-based tints that can be blended on the lips, cheeks, and eyes, made to be suitable for Filipina skin tones. The five new shades are part of the Mini Colourtints’ existing 10 shades — and all 15 colors are compact versions of existing full-sized Colourtints.
The Colourette Cosmetics Mini Colourtints are available online via Lazada and Shopee.

COS launches 2022 Spring-Summer campaign
“Transitional” is the word that’s highlighted for the release of the COS 2022 summer campaign. The campaign features a star-studded cast of characters, from supermodel and activist Christy Turlington Burns; actor Finn Wittrock, DJ, producer, and advocate for trans rights Honey Dijon; and writer, editor, and curator Antwaun Sargent, along with a host of models such as Keisuke Asano and Chu Wong. The campaign is shot by Tim Elkaïm in Los Angeles and features the signature relaxed look by COS: tailored jackets, boxy trousers that look hella comfortable, long vests, and form-fitting dresses. Look out for the collection at the COS store in Manila.
COS is at the G/F of SM Aura Premier, Taguig City.
