Fashion Files: Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes
No joke. I’ve been a fan of Planet of the Apes since its 1968 original version that I watched in MGM Channel when I was a kid. The post-apocalyptic theme of apes ruling the planet fascinated me. To the point that I lean compassion with the apes, rather than the humans. The 2001 remake by Tim Burton was meh for me, but from 2011 with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, 2014’s Dawn of The Planet of the Apes. to 2017’s War of the Planet of the Apes; the current movie versions are equally amazing!
Mossimo launches a capsule collection in line with FOX International’s third installment in the Planet of the Apes movie franchise. I was invited to an exclusive movie screening in Rockwell Powerplant Mall Makati and the movie was an emotional rollercoaster. You can’t help but feel compassion for Caesar and the apes.
Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes
The war of man versus ape continues to rage on as Mossimo, one of the country’s favorite casual wear brands, kicks off the Fall 2017 season with a capsule collection featuring its first collaboration with FOX International through Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes.
“Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes is a celebration of our partnership with FOX International and the first of many in our planned series of collaborations with popular stylists and big name brands,” shares Alex Bautista, Mossimo’s VP for Product. “With the Planet of the Apes franchise having created a cult following and being a box office success not only in Hollywood but around the world, we felt like the look and feel of the movie would greatly complement our upcoming Fall 2017 collection.”
The capsule collection features a line of comfy tees and pullovers, 100% cotton unisex tops, with eight graphic designs that continue to tell the tale of the ongoing battle between the humans and their primate counterparts. Poignant scenes and iconic, artful slogans from the movie are the highlights and will definitely catch the eyes of faithful Planet of the Apes fans and Mossimo aficionados alike.
The new Mossimo X War for the Planet of the Apes collection will be available in select Mossimo stores this July 2017. For more information on Mossimo and their latest collections, you may follow Wear Mossimo on Facebook and @WearMossimo on Instagram.
