On 24th October, AUGUST MAN and L’OFFICIEL organized a styling event with Pedro, grandly called “Sartorial Magnificence Redefined with Pedro” at ION Orchard. Privileged guests got to peruse and try on an assorted line of voguish yet functional shoes to journey with you on all kinds of occasions. Norman Tan, AUGUST MAN’s Senior Fashion Writer, and Jacquie Ang, Fashion Writer for L’OFFICIEL, pulled adventurous guests from the crowd to present a low-down on how to dress different types of Pedro shoewear and accessories, such as bags, with the appropriate pairing outfit to exude charm and style - be it for a weekend brunch, night out with friends, fashion event, or jet setting around the globe on business trips or an exotic vacation.
But of course, the night would be incomplete without something tantalizing to entice the guests. They were challenged to pick a pair of shoes of their choice, and explain in one sentence why they want that item. The best answer from one male and female will get to go home with the pair they selected. The male winner went to Jon, who described his sleek dark navy blue loafers as “I could imagine these lighting up a dance floor”. Guess someone was prepared to steal the limelight for a party he had coming up, and he’s more than prepared for it now. Trina, undoubtedly had the personality and feistiness to match the nude-toned killer pumps she chose, with the sassy sentence “The perfect revenge for my cheating ex-boyfriend”. She commented that when she puts it on, she feels beautiful, and that is sure to plague her disloyal ex-partner with jealousy. For that sentence, I would say she deserved two pair of shoes – the other to throw at the cheater while strutting away in glamour.
It was certainly a stupendous night as guests not only received fabulous styling tips, they got to be playful and bold with Pedro’s line of shoes that could dapper up any outfit and occasion in an instance.
