Special Sassa Entry by Secret Contributor

11Mar10

Last Wednesday, February 24, I thought all roads were leading to A. Venue for the Sassa Salutes Summer 2010 Preview fashion show.  It took me two hours to get to Makati Avenue from Glorietta in Ayala – what should otherwise have been just a 15-minute drive at most.  And to think it was also the day the car air-conditioner had to conk out.  It was like adding fuel to the fire; rubbing salt into the wound; adding insult to injury.  But I had promised Gaille that I will go to the show.

Unfortunately, I then missed the fashion show itself but caught the raffle hosted by Juddah Paolo.  Good thing I had asked a friend, Dinah, and her guest, Luis, from Spain by way of Korea (go figure!) to attend the event with me, and they arrived much earlier and took the photos of the show accompanying this entry.

Arriving at that time though allowed me to go through the racks of colorful bikinis, sexy maillots, cute boyleg and boardshorts and the practical rashguards before the crowd of bloggers and other media representatives swooped in.  There was a wide range of items which lend themselves to easy mix-and-match styles.  Interesting details on the suits were belts and braids on the bottoms and tasteful floral and geometric prints on many tops.  Colors ranged from pastel pinks and muted grays, to cheerful oranges and yummy chocolate browns.  The blue and green bikinis looked cool and summery.  A sexy cut-out one piece swimsuit in white also caught my eye.

Was I glad to hear too that Summer 2010 will see the return of the one-piece suit, great news for the less brave and daring!  The evening’s models walked through the gallery then to have the requisite photo shoots with the Sassa officers and the designer herself.  While obviously, the models looked perfect in their Sassa swimwear, I think the varied styles and designs of this collection will flatter and fit those with less model-esque figures.

Summer’s upon us, so it’s time to go to The Landmark, SM Hypermart, Robinson’s Department Store, and Metro Market Market to get a headstart on your summer shopping spree for all the latest styles of Sassa swimwear.

We have already!  A new bikini top to start for Gaille, my daughter.  This is her blog!

Shopping spree!
