Keds highlights elevated style by teaming up with three of the most visionary designers in the Philippines. This new wave of fashion game-changers pairs Keds’ newest collection with their handpicked creations.
Starting off with one of Manila’s rising young designers, Rosenthal Tee. Her minimalist and laidback aesthetic highlights cultural influences from vibrant Asia to continental Europe with a spirit of adventure combined with feminine sophistication.
Finishing a Bachelors degree in Management Economics from Ateneo de Manila University, she set her sights on embarking on a more creative path by honing her craft at London College of Fashion, Istituto Marangoni, and Central St. Martins College of Art and Design. Tee’s strong pieces, balancing structure with feminine details, have graced the runways of New York Fashion Week. Creating the most breathtaking designs with a stamp of approval from the Council of Aspiring American Fashion Designers, Rosenthal Tee has established her label that further the rise of Philippine fashion in the global market.
The holidays is the season to sparkle! A little bit of luster is always a good idea. Tee’s Paradise Slumber collection takes inspiration from Keds’ iridescent Triple Shimmer with a milieu of evening showstoppers reimagining a modern day Victorian lady in the tropics, lounging about in easy day to night wear pieces that brings signature evening wear into a more casual arena, giving off a laid-back chic vibe, with her own twist and masterful take on lace and pearl detailing.
Encapsulating subtlety, adventure and seductions while offering laid-back elegance and a sense of youthful femininity for women, Tee’s designs is styled with the Keds Triple Shimmer’s heightened silhouette with a subtle hint of shine for an ultra chic look that transitions easily from day to night.
Joining the mix is editorial favorite Bea Samson, who aims to promote Filipino talent globally and to establish quality fashion manufacturing in the Philippines with her namesake line of contemporary luxury made-to-measure, one of a kind, and bespoke designs, and ready-to-wear line Studio Paraluman.
Graduating from the Ateneo de Manila University with a Bachelors of Arts degree, Major in Management Economics, Samson sharpened her design techniques at the Slim’s Fashion and Arts School. Showcasing her work through various platforms and projects, including fashion show and competitions in Manila and Kuala Lumpur, Samson has earned notable accolades in the fashion industry for her original fabrics designs and prints, meticulous craftsmanship and eye for detail, work ethic, and high quality work.
Samson’s Real/Unreal collection is a psychedelic vision that draws inspiration from imaginative costumes from cinema and rendered photographs of natural and man-made elements into original prints that portray dreamlike visions that evoke a sense of movement becoming an art pieces, much like the traditional practice of printing on fabrics for Japanese kiminos.
A selection of tailored wardrobe essentials with complementary imaginative prints make the overall look stylish, playful, and wearable. With the harmonious combination of prints and fabrics in highly saturated colors and three-dimensional textured through pleating, embellishments, and other accents, Samson’s designs are styled with Keds Monochromatic Triple’s minimalist aesthetic that perfectly balances with lady-like allure.

Attending Central Saint Martins in London, she is a perennial showstopper since her first fashion show. She has conquered the global fashion scene having won multiple awards and showcasing her innovative designs on the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris.
