It's sunny days ahead for chic brand ENSEMBLES!

Like the rest of the fashion pack, ENSEMBLES is also offering bright, cheerful ideas this summer.  The dressy, new collection lavishes on very feminine dresses with elegant vibe, that when wore outdoors, will heighten the glowing effect of your weekend tan.

Obviously inspired by the yellow sun, the brand's latest ad campaign looks sunny-sunshine with the brand's celebrity ambassador CARMINA VILLAROEL. "I’m a big fan of vibrant, bold colors! My super fave is the one-shouldered coral dress I wore during our shoot.", says Carmina.

TICKLED PINK. Carmina swears to this one-shoulder coral dress with white bodice.

WHITE NOW. Add shocks of color to rock this white tulip dress, such as a smoldering red belt.
WILD CALLING. Opt for a printed dress and give off animalistic appeal.

CHAIN REACTION. Layers of chain necklaces render edgy effect to this white & black get-up.

Right at the center of Ensembles’ Sultry Summer 2011 Campaign, Carmina Villaroel steps up the style ladder with her latest collaboration with Ensembles – MUNIZ SHOES x ENSEMBLES. Muñiz Shoes is a brand owned and created by Carmina featuring her own design ideas in a variety of shoe styles: from classic pumps, trendy flats, to sultry-looking high heels. Originally sold online, she wanted to try out retail, thus the Ensembles Trinoma Mall pilot project. It became so successful, with more customers requesting for the shoes in other areas. Due to the high demand, the shoes will also be available at Robinson’s Ermita and SM Megamall starting March 18.

Here are some shoe styles that I particularly like from the collection: 

TIFFANY. Named after a niece, this drawstring bootie features mesh fabric that covers the shoe from toe to heel. The Tiffany is the perfect glamour shoe to keep your feet comfortable yet chic, and is available in mocha and gray. Price @ P2,800.00.

BEATRICE. An unapologetically girly and fun shoe, the Beatrice, named after one of Carmina’s nieces, comes with a wedge heel and is made of periwinkle material. It is available in yellow, blue, black and violet. Price @ P2,400.00.
SHEILA. Its cutouts at the sides and at the top, held together by interweaving laces, can make even the widest foot look feminine and shapely. The Sheila, named after one of Carmina’s sisters, comes in blue in shiny satin, red in periwinkle material and black. Price @ P2,500.00.
PATRICIA. Channel the laidback 70s glam with these leather wedge sandals. Coming in colors of tan, teal, and plum, the Patricia, named after one of Carmina’s favorite girl names since childhood—and also the name of one of the actress’ goddaughters—feature ankle straps that keep you stable despite the towering heel. The crisscrossed straps at the toes add some delicacy to this sturdy shoe. Price @ P2,400.00.
CARMELA. Muñiz takes on the Oxford craze with the Carmela shoe. Named after Carmina’s good friend, comedienne Candy Pangilinan, this stiletto features a weave-like black and white pattern and a toe cap made of patent leather. Price @ P2,200.00.
EVELYN. For nights out that need a shot of sophisticated glamour, this peep-toe platform heel is the perfect shoe. The cork sole and woven leather texture, emphasized by patent dark brown piping and delicate ankle straps, Evelyn is both sensible and sexy, an example of “naturalist chic”. Price @ P2,600.00.
BIANCA. With its knotted-net-and-lace upper, skinny wraparound ankle straps, and heels done in subtly textured animal print, the Bianca, named after one of Carmina’s nieces, mixes unconventional material with peek-a-boo sexiness. Price @ P2,600.00
YSABELLE. One of Carmina’s favorite names, Ysabelle is a classic peep-toe pump with platform heels and a metallic finish. Trimmed with black piping and made to achieve a pebbled net stocking effect, this shoe has a sexy, vintage appeal that looks straight off the set of Mad Men. Comes in black, gray, cream, yellow, and maroon. Price @ P2,500.00.
