Turn your office into your runway with these fresh releases

Gone are the pandemic days when workwear meant cozy pieces and uber-casual items. As we fully embrace the world again, people are stepping out and going to offices wearing their most inspired ‘fits. And the memo also hit many of the world’s leading design houses. Elevated work looks were seen in the international runways, from Prada and Loewe to Bally and more, each presenting chic reimaginations of suit ensembles, luxe tailoring, and the perfect accessories to jazz up any corporate attire.

Indeed, work meets play in the latest “core” in fashion, the Corpcore. And if you want to turn your very own office into your runway, here are some fresh releases that will put a new twist on the office staples you have in your wardrobe.

 Jimmy Choo’s Avenue Quad, Furla 1927 Rosso Veneziano, and Burberry Rocking Horse tote 

Arm candies

Corporate wear, for many, centers on tailoring and monochromatic hues. The best way to add personality to the mix is through look-at-me bags. Think of Furla 1927 Rosso Veneziano in red for a pop of color. Something graphic is Jimmy Choo’s Avenue Quad featuring the house’s striking angular patchworks motif. While Burberry brings back its Rocking Horse tote made from suede with leather top handles, which are perfect for people on the go.

​​In the Philippines, Furla, Jimmy Choo, and Burberry are exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc. Visit and @ssilifeph on Instagram and Facebook for more information.
