Bergamo's Jazz Cocktails (Recounting Events # 1)

Bergamo is one of the country's premiere haberdasher specializing both on tailoring and ready to wear. It is one of the most recognizable names in Philippine fashion being the go to store for the casual, corporate, to formal wear of Manila's stylish men. The brand may sound distinctly foreign but the company is actually Filipino owned and has been in the industry for more than 25 years.

I was invited to attend the initial preview of their summer collection at their Greenbelt 5 flagship store. The intimate event entitled "Jazz Cocktails" included a select clientele loyal to the ever changing style of the brand. Guests were serenaded by the spectacular Michael Young on sax, while being served Japanese h'ordeurves and wine.

The first set had a more casual look for the season. The pieces dabbled mostly on neutral colors with variation of details in fabrics, prints and piping. Light materials were used consisting mostly of linen – fitting for the summer season in the country.

The second set had a dash of bright colors, playing with lavender, pink and blue, with knitted suit pieces highlighting a stylish resort to formal look. Fabrics ranged from linen, silk to light wool showcasing a functional collection with an easy feel.

Located at almost every corner of the metro, Bergamo is accessible to its growing clientele offering high quality ready to wear pieces and tailored to perfection suits and barongs. Staying true to innovating men’s fashion, Bergamo continues to succeed in creating modern looks for men.

Special thanks to Mr. Mel Meer and Mr. Louis Dollaga of Bergamo for letting me cover the event.
