Young Filipino designer Ellis Co launched his fall/winter collection dubbed a “Memoirs of the Future.” In making the collection, Ellis took influences from Brutalist architectural style from the ‘50s and ‘60s and New Brutalism from Berlin and Copenhagen.
Known for its monolithic appearance and geometric beauty, the architectural movement is combined with the Japanese fashion aesthetic. This makes the collection a showcase of ensembles that reimagines silhouettes aiming to redefine clothing function and reimagine the idea of fashion for individuals.
Ellis Co, 21, has been a true fashion creative. He started his foray to design by creating shirts at the age of 16. He studied entrepreneurial management at the University of Asia and the Pacific. While he didn’t finish his course, he went on to become the Assistant Vice President for Operations for his family’s real estate and construction company, Sunwest Group Holdings Company, Inc. Apart from working in the family business, he is also a music producer, rapper, and lyricist with his works available on Spotify and Youtube.
