Bosquejo presents: the Sacre collection, first look


These photos are the product of a test shoot done right after Philippine Fashion Week. This is my first time to work with the talented duo composed of photographer Enzo Mondejar and stylist Eric Poliquit. Models Jhony and Pedro walked the runway for the retail and menswear shows.

Necklace on Pedro: Agrippa


Even though I was able to fully develop the Hardware collection first, my very first prototypes (necklaces I actually wore) were based on the future Sacre collection. Here is a look back at the first outfit, way back in May 2009, where I wore my very first prototype. I still can't imagine that it has been more than two years since then.

Necklace on Pedro: Benedict III


Now pieces from Sacre are already being sold at ac+632 (Greenbelt 5) and by tomorrow, Saturday, also at House of Laurel (6013 Villena corner Mañalac Street, Poblacion, Makati).

Necklace on a headless pet Chun Li: Benedict III


Time certainly flies fast.

Necklace on Jhony: Benedict IV


And we are just warming up. I plan on creating even more Sacre necklaces before the collection's full launch next year.

Necklace on Pedro: Benedictine


The shoot will also be by Enzo and Eric, and I just can't wait.


For those of you wondering, the saint on the pendants is Saint Benedict, hence the names of the necklaces. Beads are made of coated nickel and plastic.

Necklace on Jhony: Benedict IV


This variation incorporates repurposed bullets.

Necklace on Pedro: Bullets and Roses


Other pendants from the collection depict Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, Saint Joseph, Saint Peter, Raphael (not sure if the saint or the angel), the Santo Niño, and the crucified Christ.

Necklaces on Jhony: Benedict III and Bullets and Roses


Of course, how can I miss the more pagan representations of the Third Eye, the Horseshoe of Luck (my name, since I can't recall exactly what it's called), etc: the inevitable other side of Sacre.

Necklace on Jhony: Christopher II (not yet on the website)

Happy Friday!
