Local clothing brand QUIVER makes a big splash with its newest collection. From multicolored maxi cover ups to sexy rompers to this season’s “IT” towel – they have it all. “The three of us share a passionate affinity for water. When we first started our company Beachshack, Inc. , the vision was to create a platform to promote the Quiver culture — the merry, laid-back beach lifestyle through the retail of resort apparel,” say owners Kitzi Purugganan-Roxas, Tin Magsaysay-Matic and Olivia Olalia-Guzman. The brand name was chosen precisely for its meaning which is — a surfer’s collection of surfboards that are of different lengths and thickness that allows him to get the best ride for different kinds of waves. “Our line offers different–sized women different styles of beachwear, allowing them to always look their beach-babe best.”
I like QUIVER for it’s playful, comfortable and fashion-forward designs. It’s quite popular with celebrities, too! All fabrics are sourced locally (save for the towels which are imported from China). Actually, the brand’s soon-to-released beach blanket series are all made from textile coming from a loomweaving community in La Paz, Abra. In addition, each piece in the collection is a limited edition. “We do not mass produce. We want our customers to feel special when they wear our label.”
Who wears Quiver?
The Quiver Girl is a poster child for the fun-loving, independent and adventurous set. Weekends will always find her escaping from the corporate jungle and heading to her favorite getaway. She is confident and prefers clothes that celebrate both her body and free spirit.
The BQP’s Top Picks
Sun-kissed and Stylish
Look like the goddess that you are! The ATHENA (P2100) maxi dress is simply gorgeous! This versatile cover-up is made of cool, light spandex and is available in black, white, coral, indigo and sea foam green. The contrasting selvages are a subtle play in color.
As adorable as a wooer’s ditty, the HARANA (P1600) romper in orange creamsicle surely captivates. This outfit is perfect for strolling in the mall or by the seashore. Your choice whether to wear it with wedge heels or flip-flops. Put on your favorite sunnies and you’re ready to go!
The OLIVIA (P1900) playsuit is my favorite look in the classic collection. It is both seductive and forgiving. It shows off the legs but hides the arms. Done in a rich cobalt blue hue and nautical stripes – this romper is a certified Quiver bestseller.
Wear the IRINA cover up in grey over your swimsuit or a fitted camisole and white shorts. Another must-buy!
Bask N’ Dry
I’m absolutely loving the roundie towels (P2400)! It’s the perfect companion for lounging under the blazing summer sun or for drying yourself after a leisurely swim. When cooler weather permits, pack your towel and have a picnic or read a book in the park. Trés chic!
