Solo’s Larry Alcala Collection Launch And Model Search


I’m a huge fan of Larry Alcala’s work,  I used to always buy the Sunday newspaper so I can see his Splice of Life cartoons and his comic strip Kalabog and Bosyo on the lifestyle/cartoon page of Manila Bulletin before.  His works are very distinct and are very lively.  In fact I can spot a Larry Alcala cartoon when I see one.

I was elated to know that Solo thought of making a collection out of Larry Alcala’s works in their Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Collection .  This project is like the counterpart of Freeway’s National Artist Collection but since Larry Alcala has not been declared a national artist yet this is a great way to pay tribute to a great cartoonist.

Here are some of the Larry Alcala’s Slice of Life collection  I would  like to have the top this model is wearing (actually I like everything she was wearing! haha!)
Larry Alcala 6

But I’ve always liked and feel comfortable wearing the Ladies Slub Dress so this one is definitely on my favorite list in the collection (Php1,595.00) I like the the statement on it but I would like to have the one in Teal than the Gray.

Ladies' Slub Dress P1595

This unisex Limited Edition Watch (Php595..00)
Unisex Watch P595

This Bubble Skirt Lady Dress looks interesting too!
