Da Baddest Looking the Most, Bretman Rock Flexes Filipino Fashion In His Cover

Bretman really be doing the most for rising creatives.

Wearing mostly Filipino brands, Bretman Rock not only puts the spotlight on his culture, but also on rising Asian designers from various parts of the world.

Bretman Rock in Michael Cinco for his NYLON Manila cover was a pleasant treat to see. Just like in his house tour episode for Architectural Digest, he’s no stranger to supporting local and emerging artists. Aside from the all-Filipino team that put the shoot together, so did the fashion direction and the designers that were picked. It was a non-negotiable factor to shine a light on Filipino fashion. NYLON Manila’s Editor-in-Chief, Angelo Ramirez de Cartagena, shares, “If it wasn’t Filipino, it needed to be Asian or from a young, up-and-coming brand, all in the true irreverent core of the NYLON brand.” It was a coming together of AAPIs through and through. From Rhude by Rhuigi Villaseñor to Jewelmer, here are the Filipino and Asian brands that Bretman flexed on his cover shoot.
