In The Press: Randy Ortiz, The Philippine Star, April 27, 2012

Randy Ortiz pays homage to his dad, the original dapper dresser in his life, as read from Bea Ledesma's article in the April 27, 2012 issue of The Philippine Star.

“Bold and wise” was a theme of Randy Ortiz’s, who devoted most of the show to his RTW collection for Myth, the retail concept in Greenbelt 5. Mustard jackets, cropped patterned trousers and printed shirts made for a bright forecast for the coming season. 

Ortiz recalls his father, a politician who cut a dapper figure during Ortiz’s childhood in the ’60s. “His taste for clothing was not at all boring,” Ortiz remembers. “He played around with prints, patterns, colors and texture with just a neighborhood tailor at the helm.” 

Recalling the halcyon days of debonair dressing brought him full circle. “I thought of paying homage to my father, going through his old wardrobe and his multitudes of suits and thought about how metrosexuals have evolved over time.” 

Today’s dapper dresser is a man who strives for a well-turned shirt and a properly-hemmed jacket while unafraid of mixing colors. “The concept is more upbeat street with a strong clubwear tone,” he declares. “It’s all about men getting bolder, wiser and unpredictable.”
