Living in an era where the new norm calls for ease and comfort, RAMON FILIP transforms wardrobe staples into modern and luxurious eveningwear with a powerful 80’s flare that makes them simultaneously glamorous and versatile.

Day to night pieces get a whole new meaning in RAMON FILIP’s new collection. Think powerful tailored blazers and jackets paired with high-waisted skirts, or easy-to-wear bustiers and legging-style fitted trousers. Sleek dresses that enhance the female figure. Comfy-chic jumpsuits in vibrant pink. Strong shapes, powerful silhouettes, impeccable tailoring, luxurious fabrics, glamorous details.

It’s an image appropriate for strong, independent women, corporate executives, leaders, unapologetically ambitious career women, who have devoted their existence to pursuing a sense of freedom. They get dressed to accommodate their busy schedules, to project an image that is both appealing and powerful, confident but not arrogant. Charismatic. Credible. Comfortable. Feminine. They choose versatile pieces to wear from business meetings to fancy dinners, just by adding the right accessories, by throwing on their shoulders a velvet blazer, or by adding a polka-dot tulle blouse underneath.

Besides its versatility and ease, this collection is nothing short of luxury and glamour. Hand-embellished mirror beads adorn pencil skirts with high slits, velvet jackets and mini dresses with ruffled tulle inlays. Feather details create high contrasts on strapless dresses and mini skirts, whereas versatile bustiers are worn with almost every attire paired with delicate tulle blouses, blazers and neoprene legging-style cropped trousers.

The colour palette includes black, silver and fuschia, heightened by feathers in white and ash – a contrasting palette enhanced by ultra-modern touches. Between a masterful classicism and rethought contemporaneity, RAMON FILIP’s vision relishes in a reinterpretation of past — yet never old-fashioned — codes. The combination possibilities are endless, as are the potentials of the women who choose to wear them.

Is it just me, or do you also feel invincible when wearing leather? (Faux leather in this case, but one that looks as good as the real deal). I’m extremely happy that leather proved to be one of the season’s biggest trends. I am a big fan of glamorous designs and funky experimentations, that’s why I recommend giving a try to leather ensembles this season. After all, this is an ideal time of the year when we can wear functional clothing.

I love the feeling of leather. The polished look, the versatility, the tough yet buttery feeling. The strength it projects along with its ability to wear it up or down with the suitable accessories. Composed by an oversized shirt with tapered trousers, this ensemble for me is the epitome of versatility. Easy-to-wear, perfectly on trend, comfortable, structured and in the sweetest caramel hue. It is my go-to attire for day-to-night looks that are perfectly tuned with comfy-chic mood we are all thriving to achieve in our demanding everyday life.

Needless to say, the options of wearing the two pieces separately are just infinite. So go for it! Go for a total leather look. Keep on experimenting and see what makes you feel comfortable and special.

Let’s face it. We have all spent too much time at home in our pjs and joggers and we’re craving for some good-old-times dressing up. I’m here for it ladies! I’m wearing my most lavish feather party-dress to celebrate a dear friend’s birthday, (when covid safety regulations allowed small gatherings). And I was there to party because if there’s one thing the lockdown has taught us all, that is to never take anything for granted ever again. It is the time to reflect, evaluate, prioritize, appreciate and party hard whenever we get the chance to! I go for ‘’more is more’’ with any opportunity I get, I unapologetically own the look and dance the night away.

I chose to wear this extravagant feather dress because I honestly feel that it gives me wings! Wearing it empowers me. It fills me with the recognition that I can still play the game on my own terms, no matter the constraints, no matter the rules. And it, once again, highlighted how the things that are physically closest to our bodies – our clothes, (just like the people that we love, hug and kiss) – can dramatically change our mood, our attitude and eventually our perspective.

No matter if there’s no party going on at the moment, the ritual of going into my wardrobe and putting together an outfit, it’s an event on its own right. And here’s what I’ve come to realize: that rather than being restricted by fashion during lockdown, I’ve been emancipated by it. The idea of dressing for myself, with no societal dress codes or rules to follow, has become a revelation. It is the most liberating feeling of all!

When everything around us is falling apart, dressing up is an act of revolution! The most glamorous, extravagant, voluminous and loudest things in my wardrobe offer me a hand to fight the lows of any situation. They become the bright anticipation that better days are coming. They became the wings of my imagination that transform my thoughts and lift my spirit. That’s the power of fashion and that’s one of the main reasons I so much love my job. It gives me wings and makes me fly!

How many white shirts are too many to have in your wardrobe?  I say there are never enough! Let’s be honest here. Some of the most versatile and easy-to-wear pieces in a woman’s closet are borrowed from the men’s. Think blazers, trousers (slim fit, wide fit, cigarette, you name it), jeans, t-shirts, vests, even sweaters… And the list goes on.

If we look back in the history of fashion, I say it was about time we, as women, claimed back the comfort and ease offered by these pieces, once restricted solely to men. (Remember corsets and crinolines?) Call it a feminist reaction, call it a fashion revolution. Whatever the name, women, once again, prove that anything in their hand, (and body), becomes better!

Think of all the ways you can wear a simple white shirt… Endless, really! I opted for a high slit skirt in this look, because this sexy feminine wardrobe hero is my new go to. Made from velvet neoprene stretch, this skirt is so perfectly hugging my curves in all the right places. OMG this combination is the perfect recipe for feeling sexy, confident, but classy and elegant at the same time. A seamless combo to balance the feminine with the masculine, the glamorous with the comfortable. Just add a simple pair of mules and a tiny pouch and you are ready to go.

My point is, no matter if you choose to wear a primarily masculine piece, there are endless ways to keep it feminine and sexy. All you need to do is set your imagination free and choose the right pieces. And never stop projecting your feminine power!

PS.: This skirt just dropped in my new collection. Follow the link to make it yours as I assure you, it will become your new favorite piece to wear from day to night.

Not so long ago, style and comfort did not go together. But hey, it’s 2020! And thank goodness we’ve come a long way in terms of dressing up, dressing down and everything in between.

Personally, I love dressing up. But I also love to feel good and comfortable in my clothes. And when it comes to my business look, I want it all. Elegance, comfort, style and versatility. Business casual is not hard to achieve, as long as you know your style DNA. I’m a big lover of blazers and jackets, as they instantly add that edginess and elegance to any executive look. So, if you mean business, a blazer will become your wardrobe hero.

And jeans? Oh jeans! I could live in them and I love incorporating them in my everyday business looks. Fit and colour matter ladies, so make sure you choose the right style that flatters your body type, and is business appropriate.

Accessories are a whole chapter on their own. Let’s just say that a pair of modern edgy sandals will instantly elevate your look while make you stand out from the court-shoes-tribe, while some golden hued jewellery will add the right amount of sparkle to your outfit. 

Since comfort and versatility have come to define our wardrobes, smart casual dress code is here to stay. After all, it takes us from office to happy hour in style, and we couldn’t ask for more!

What’s more empowering than wearing a dress that makes you feel divine? I have always believed that making clothes goes beyond dressing people. It is in fact, an act of transformation.

Putting on a powerful dress, both feminine and impressive, like this modern goddess inspired gown, can make a women feel different about herself. It definitely has this effect on me! Choosing the right occasion dress for the day is an act of empowerment, one that helps create a powerful image. An image of independence. An image of strength. Without compromising femininity. After all, femininity is our super power dear friends.

Being women comes first and celebrating womanhood through beautiful clothes that project and embrace all sides of our feminine nature is indeed an act of empowerment. Be a goddess! Dress for it! Live for it!
