The Versatile Folded & Hung

“I want everyone to wear what they want and mix it in their own way.  That to me is modern. “ – Karl Lagerfeld, designer at the House of Chanel

From helping his mom manage a small boutique in Pampanga to selling clothes from the trunk of his car  to joining bazaars in Greenhills, Ronald V. Pineda has certainly come a long way.   His  clothing brand FOLDED & HUNG (F&H) now has 64 stores nationwide and his empire is expanding by the day.

A visit to the F&H flagship store in Glorietta  proved to be quite the experience for me.   I was amazed at how select items can be mistaken for pieces from international brands (you’ll see later just what I mean).  “The brand stands for high street style.  The line is stylish yet comfortable,  youthful yet confident and the quality is certainly worth the customer’s money,” Ronald says emphatically.  “All my siblings have a hand in running the business.  My sister Claudette is in charge of women’s wear, while my brother Fel is the finance head.  My other JR designs the menswear line. Alan Vianzon, my business partner, is responsible for marketing.  Our combined efforts have made F&H the brand it  is today.”

STLYE IS A CHOICE

From the myriad of choices in the store, I put together over  a dozen looks. Taking the cue from Mr. Lagerfeld, I mixed and matched the pieces. Here are my top picks from F&H.

Creme of the CROP

FH cropped top

L- Burgundy box crop top with stitching detail (P899) paired with black jogger pants (P899). This look is sleek and confident. Wear heels and a clutch to complete the easy sophisticated vibe.
R- Black box crop top (P899) and white cotton shorts (P699). A fun look for the weekend!  Big tote bag  with studs (P999).

 

FH crop set

SHOW OFF JUST ENOUGH SKIN. Everyone – from Jennifer Aniston to Miley Cyrus to Sarah Hyland (Modern Family) loves to wear the crop. Throw in a blazer for cooler nights and this informal get-up can take you to a night out with friends. Crop top and Skirt Set (P749).

 

MAXI-MIZE

FH Maxis

GIRL AROUND TOWN. The Chevron maxi (P1,149) and the dainty flower long dress (P1,149) are simply too pretty to pass up !

 

THE FLORAL JACKET

FH 4floral jackets

MUST BUY! How fun are these jackets done in colorful blooms? Upper row – both from F&H. Bottom row – both from ZARA. Same look , different price points. I bought the blue jacket on the top left!

 

FH floral jackets on denim

L- Blue floral jacket (P1299) wit skinny dark jeans (P899)
R- Red floral jacket (P1299) with black jogger pants (P899)

 

STRIPES AND PLAID

FH Stripes and Plaid

CASUAL CHIC. Clean and hip. Again, I mixed and matched the pieces to create many looks. (L-R) 1. Blues and White stripe blouse (P799) with white skinny jeans (P1199) 2. Red and Blue Plaid shirt 3. Plaid top with number paired with distressed denim shorts. 4. Tan and Blue stripe top (P799) with denim shorts.

 

BLACK AND WHITE (The Luxe Collection)

FH luxe tops

From the pre-holiday collection comes these festive bejewelled tops.

FH black dress

Love, love, love this black and white mini shift dress(P1399)!

 

FH luxe mix

White cotton shirt with faux leather printed sleeves. You have to see and touch the textile to appreciate the “luxe” feel.

 

FH jumpsuit

Another MUST BUY! Black jumpsuit (P1099) – austere, comfortable and trés en vogue.

 

FH jumpsuit with jacket

JACKET OVER JUMPSUIT. Now put on this beautiful tan faux leather jacket with iron on print (P1799) to complete the chic look. This ensemble will surely make it in my luggage for my holiday trip!

GOING GLOBAL

It’s my goal to invade the international market.  F&H will be ready in a few years to go global.  We have a distinct look,  we observe the highest quality in our pieces, and  we have the passion to drive the brand as far as it can go.  Lastly, we can also boast of a very competitive price point ,” an excited Ronald shares.  I asked him if he will consider producing scents or maybe  even a home line.  “Why not?  I’m claiming it now that all these are possible.  I’m open to all of the blessings of the universe!”

Congratulations to you, my friend!  Your positivity is inspiring.  Cheers to your success Ronald and to the the blessings that are yet to come!

    Can’t figure out what to choose from the different styling you made. I’ve several choices. The first one is the “Overall” because I love spaghetti straps and I think it will perfectly match the doll shoes I bought recently.
    Second, The Casual Chic – tan & blue stripe top with denim shorts. This is perfect for gigs. I can pair this with a doll shoes or flip flops.

    Your styling plus the mix and match was simply fabulous. Thanks BQP for sharing this to us 🙂

    I’ve been a frequent buyer of their shirts mostly stripes and plain with collar. I never thought that they also have blouse/tops which looks so elegant. Thank you for sharing this fashionable feature BQP.

    It’s hard to choose from the stripes and plaid what blouse will I pick but since my favorite color is blue, I’ll choose the blue and white stripe blouse. It defines me…”very simple” 🙂 I can wear this at work paired with denim pants and flat shoes. My second choice is the Blue Floral Jacket. Christmas Season is fast approaching so I can definitely use it. I love the floral design. It is so identical with the Zara brand. Price is so affordble. The jacket is so beautiful and attractive. I can pair it with what I’m comfortable to wear (pants,shorts and dress)….

    Thank You BQP for the up to dates trendy post and value for money 🙂 Two thumbs up!

    I like your post BQP! It’s so stylish and worth the customer’s money. When you mixed and match the pieces it turned out to be fabulous.
    For a change, I chose the crop top and skirt (P749) . Wear it with blazer and this will be a perfect attire for our Christmas Party. Price is affordable. I’ll just need to find a perfect shoes and some accessories to match with it 🙂

    My second choice is the beautiful tan faux leather jacket with iron print. I love jackets. I”ve several in my closet. I used it at the office because our floor is like that I’m inside a big freezer 🙂 The iron print is really eye catching.

    The floral jacket is a must-have for me. Aside from it looking so trendy and cute, it will serve it’s purpose. I know we live in a tropical country but believe me, there are times when i step outside and i get cold! I have a low tolerance for cold and i get so cold easily, i sleep with socks, PJ’s and a blanket all night. This jacket will help me stay fashionable while keeping warm and comfy.
