The co-founder and general manager of the designer label BOBON (which houses limited creations by mavericks Puey Quinones, Roland Lirio, Eric delos Santos and lately, Estien Quijano) made his successful foray to menswear that he showcased at the most recent Philippine Fashion Week.
Aptly called BOBON Homme, Uly's holiday collection for men has Old World luxe feel (with his theme, fabric and color choices) re-translated with modern engineering, slim fit and sharp geometric details.
Uly's formal pieces also rely on strong and clear construction, with pleating mostly present in pants and dress shirts - as well as pintucks. The young designer must also love triangles, utilizing triangular lapels on jackets and vests with triangular hemlines for a take on an updated architectural look. And by the way, I also love the top with Peter Pan collar.
1.) vest in diagonal pleats - available in black, maroon and powder blue ( P2,200)
2.) slim fit jacket in triangular lapel- silver gray and old rose ( P6,500)
1. Navy blue suit ( wool) with pleated lapel and japanese floral lining (with pants) - full set P 15,000
2. White cotton dress shirt with V shape accent in pintucks- P 2,200
Medici blue sleeveless shirt with peter pan collar- ( P 1,800)

Combining the old and the new, Uly's holiday collection is for the men who love details, are confident, and oozing with masculine appeal. Check out his collection for BOBON located at the Markati Palazzo, 4th Level, The Podium.
And oh, by the way, I still don't know what BOBON means. Maybe I'll ask Uly when I finally get to see him.
