The Item: 5cm SS 10 Collection

5cm has been holding it down for a minute now, and here they are again with yet another fresh batch of those innovatively-styled goodies with the much awaited unveiling of their Spring-Summer 2010 Collection. Staying true to what has made it one of my Top 5 Stores for 2009, the new pieces let the wearer show his casual taste with flair and his individuality with edge. The new drops put an emphasis on layering, pairing basic pieces with uniquely designed garments, be it the edited blazer, cropped pants, or a mesmerizing trench (my favorite piece!).

The 5cm Spring Summer 2010 collection is themed as “Accent Light and Edge in Darkness”. Its main collection presents different color inspirations from nature: Sunset in Spring and Sunlight with the Edge in Darkness. 5cm designers played around with the basic spectrum of colors combining different layers of textures and various lengths as an attempt to create a diversified collection.The collection highlights a lavish use of earth tone colors such as beige, khaki, cream, navy, grey and black; while adding colors of red, green, purple and blue in various shades as accents.

Sounds good to me. I've always been a proponent of classic earth tones with hints of bright colors to make things interesting. I'd suggest you check these out in the brand's two branches in SM Megamall's Atrium and SM Mall of Asia, but I don't think I have to. The awesome pictures below speak for their damn selves.

The lovely trench coat I was talking about. The blazer's quite a looker too.

Love the styling of the right pic the most. So fresh, that non-sporty hoodie is.

The lightweight blazer on the right's a winner with the pattern on the lapels

One can never have enough striped shirts. The red's a fine addition.
