Carl Jan CruzCarl Jan Cruz is a collection of visual autobiographies that aims to represent an honest dialogue between personal past and present; refining sentiment into something tangible. They are an independent Filipino-based brand that produces within a vertical system from conception to production. They have an intimate team from showroom to atelier and develop 85% of their fabrications closely with their local mills to create a stronger focus on Contemporary Filipino fashion.
Their PAMBAHAY is an "aparador" (closet) collection of clothing created as an expression of what Filipinos commonly refer to as pambahay or house clothes. CarlJanCrewz (the CJC Team) hopes to innovate and embrace the concept of house clothes that can be celebrated together. Made of specially designed CJC fine jersey pique fabric, this collection is an intimate take on the mundane experiences of living life in Manila.
