Ipanema's Colorful Sea Collection


Ipanema launched its newest Gisele Bundchen collection last week. Dubbed as "Colorful Sea" the new line will help raise funds and awareness for Brazil's turtle population and our own local marine life. The Philippine Ballet Theater made an awesome performance during the event. Here's a short video of the show -



During the event a WWF Philippines Vice Chair and CEO Lory Tan gave an impactful presentation about climate change. He shared projections about what may happen in the coming years as a result of global warming. He showed images using maps on what may happen to our coastal lines once water eats up 12 meters of land. Boracay will be halved. Caticlan Airport will disappear. Mactan will go underwater. Most of our airports and ports will disappear and other possibilities. He said that it is not enough to give donations to causes or sign petitions to do stuff, but each of us have to do our part to prepare for this catastrophe. (I know I should've asked for a copy of that preso!)

Here's a couple of (trying hard) photos I took during PBT's performance -







The collection's really cute! Check `em out at Bambu (Glorietta) and I also saw some at The Landmark.
