Converse Announces Collaborative One Star Collection With Engineered Garments

GROUP SHOT

Creative Director and Founder Daiki Suzuki of Engineered Garments set to release special edition CONVERSE ONE STAR

Converse and Engineered Garmentshave come together to introduce a new collaborative line of One Star sneakers. Engineered Garments Creative Director and Founder, Daiki Suzuki issues a collection that reflects his personal journey and relationship with Converse and plays on his affinity to reinvent and reengineer, while keeping with the shoe’s iconic look.

The Converse x Engineered Garments One Star collection is available in four iterations of the classic One Star logo including the Star Chevron, Stars & Bars, and two variations for the customary star. Suzuki recalls a specific era for each style all representing silhouettes of his personal favorites from Converse. The collection is available in four premium leather colorways including Olive, Navy, White, and Black. Aligned with Suzuki’s ethos of conceptual design through experience, the collection provides a lense on Converse’sdaring versatility through the years.




Founder, Daiki Suzuki says of the collaboration, “When approached with the project to work with Converse the idea came from wanting to tell a bit of the history of the company, first and foremost. Chuck Taylor, for us is a perfect shoe that we weren’t sure we could add or subtract to, its remained almost unchanged all this time. The One Star or rather the iterations after the “Leather All Star” was a canvas we thought could be mined to create something new.

“For Nepenthes/Engineered Garments, we have played around with the idea of twisting ideas together, creating negative/positive’s in one pair of shoes. In attempting to create something new, we thought it would be best to start the relationship by revisiting the past and melding the first four (after that “Leather All Star”) models into one. Doing them all at once will have memories for some, seeing them come out when they did and for others it will be a lesson on how things can change subtly over time. For myself it represents my youth, memories I hold dear.”

BLACK

The sneakers are leather-lined with an Engineered Garments branded logo illustrated on the shoe’s sockliner. Each pair are housed in Engineered Garments premium packaging with tonal cotton laces.

The debut Engineered Garments Converse One Star collection is exclusively available in Commonwealth, SM Aura for Php 5,990.

SM Supermalls, the premier shopping mall chain in the country traces its roots to selling shoes.

All-in promo fares from as low as P990 are up for grabs now at airasia.com

AirAsia is introducing direct flights from Manila to one of the most vibrant and biggest cities of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City, further strengthening the airline’s commitment as an Asean carrier.

AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador said, “We are thrilled to announce that we will start servicing direct flights from Manila to Ho Chi Minh in November as part of our commitment to continue bringing the Philippines closer to neighbouring cities within the Asean region.”




To celebrate the announcement, all-in fares from as low as P990 for Manila – Ho Chi Minh route are now available for booking today until 8 October 2017 on airasia.com and the airline’s mobile app.  The introductory promo fares are available for travel period from 17 November 2017 to 21 November 2018.

“AirAsia is the only airline that directly services all ten Asean countries with established operations in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Last year, the AirAsia Group carried 13.4 million people within Asean and we aim to continue bringing the region closer together via inter-Asean connectivity,” Comendador added.

AirAsia has been recently recognized for its outstanding performance in the Asean priority integration sector for tourism at the ASEAN Business Awards 2017 held in Manila with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte personally giving the award to AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes and 11 other winners from different sectors last September 6.

AirAsia services Manila – Ho Chi Minh route with three flights weekly or every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday.

Vietnam offers travellers an opportunity to discover the country’s tradition that overlaps with French colonial influences and picturesque coastline. A visit first to Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as ‘Saigon’), is the perfect starting point to explore southern Vietnam. This vibrant city is the centre of commerce and to get a good glimpse of its beauty, it is advisable to seat at a roadside café with a cup of Vietnamese iced coffee or ‘Ca Phe Sua Da’ followed by a stroll to famous architectural marvels such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, Saigon Opera House, Jade Emperor Pagoda and temples.

To appreciate the local culture, travellers can sample a myriad of fresh produce and food offerings from Ba Chieu Market, a local market off the beaten path for the famous baguette sandwich, ‘Banh Mi’ or some ‘Com Tam’, a ‘broken rice’ style dish topped with grilled meat; or go shopping for various types of quality fabric at affordable prices at the famed Ben Thanh Market.  If you have an interest in history, visit The War Remnants museum or the famed Cu Chi tunnels for a glimpse into what life was during the war.

AirAsia has won this year’s Asean Business Award for Priority Integration Sector – Tourism.

The award recognises outstanding performance in the Asean priority integration sector of tourism.

AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes accepted the award on behalf of the company at the Asean Business Awards (ABA) 2017 ceremony held in Solaire Resort and Casino here last night.

The award was presented by Asean Business Advisory Council (BAC) Chairman Joey Concepcion, witnessed by Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and Philippine Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez.




AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes said, “Asean integration is about people as much as it is about policies. It’s not just about having a community on paper. It’s about experiencing first-hand how others live, it’s about creating new jobs in travel and tourism, it’s about forming new supply chains by connecting places that have never been connected. Air travel does this and more – AirAsia carried 13.4 million people within Asean last year – and we are proud to do our part to bring the region closer together.”

The ABA was created by the Asean BAC in 2007 to recognise outstanding Asean enterprises, serve as a platform to spread information on the Asean Economic Community, and spotlight SMEs that have the potential of becoming global economic players in their respective industries.

In addition to tourism, Priority Integration Sector awards were given for achievements in 11 other sectors – fisheries, electronics, e-Asean/ICT, textiles, logistics, wood-based, rubber, agri-foods, healthcare, automotive and retail.

Also up for grabs were awards for SME excellence, women entrepreneurs, young entrepreneurs and inclusive businesses, as well as the Friend of Asean Award and the Legacy Award.
