Samsonite RED Launch – May 7, 2014

When I first found out that Samsonite RED was coming to Manila, I couldn’t contain my excitement! These past few months, I’ve seen been seeing news articles and videos of Kim Soo Hyun and Angelababy endorsing this brand. I think Song Joong Ki and Ha Yeon Soo also modeled for them before. Thank you Samsonite for putting all these beautiful people together! When fandoms collide!

The launch event at Century City Mall was also very timely because I just finished watching You Who Came From The Stars. (I wonder if there’s any recent K-drama of the same caliber?) In the drama, Kim Soo Hyun was always sporting backpacks to school. I wish I already had #MyFirstRed when I was in college!

With my very own Samsonite “Liebe” bag (small orange). I love it so much – I’ve been using it as my main work bag because it can fit my laptop and small cameras! It is definitely the perfect school bag.

By the entrance was an exhibit of Samsonite RED’s current collection. These ones are for the boys.

Something I can imagine my dad, brothers or boyfriend can use when they’re traveling.

These SR Park Summer bags are perfect for all the girls out there who prefer toting pastel colors!

Peachy keen! Just the right pop of color to spice up a simple outfit.

WeeWillDoodle was there to entertain the crowd by creating an animated mural featuring the newest collection of Samsonite RED.

With fellow bloggers Laureen, David, Patricia, and model Hideo (who now has a blog of his own!) just before the event started.

Missed these girls!

MYX VJ and host, Chino Lui Pio invited everyone to the #MyFirstJump trampoline photo booth. I wanted to have my photo taken too but I was wearing a skirt. :(

The launch included a spring/summer 2014 fashion presentation featuring the Unisex, Men’s and Women’s lines of Samsonite RED.

The way it was styled was adorable! We were able to easily see how the bags can blend in with everyday life. The models also did a good job with some of the skits that they did.
