ENSEMBLES presents the Louis Claparols Holiday Collection

I first heard of the name Louis Claparols in one of the infomercials of ABS-CBN’s Magkaribal. I have to be honest that I am not really updated when it comes to the fashion trends in the Philippines, although I am quite familiar with the clothing line ENSEMBLES (Thank you, Carmina Villaroel for being an effective product endorser!). It is a line specially for women who are in the corporate world. Their designs are simple yet sophisticated and ready to wear.

Q&A with Louis Claparols

What is your inspiration for your Ensembles’ Collection designs?

It was inspired by a lot of things from architecture to graphic art to my favorite movies. I played with a lot of lines and shapes & cutout prints to make it really graphic & playful.

What is your favorite piece from the entire collection?

I love the diamond collection, I love how beautifully graphic it is.

How do you feel about this collaboration for a capsule collection with Ensembles?

Well I always wanted to collaborate with a local women’s label and I’m just so flattered that I was invited to do a capsule collection.

Q&A with Carmina Villarroel


• What is your favorite piece from the entire collection?
I like the geometric patch pieces. I find strong yet feminine.

• How would you describe your personal style?
Classic. But sometimes I can be experimental too! I can be trendy and stylish. But what’s most important to me is I am comfortable in what I’m wearing.

• What do you do during rainy days? How do you spend time with the kids?
Either we stay at home… and play! PS3, board games, watch DVDs and sometimes we go to the mall and eat out.

• How will your spend your Holidays?
We don’t know yet but definitely we will spend Christmas and New Year here in Manila. We can’t leave because Zoren and I have a daily show. We also make it a point to spend holidays here with our families and friends.
