Modern muse: Agot Isidro reimagines summer style

The local fashion scene takes a decidedly elegant turn this season as Homme et Femme unveils its Summer 2024 campaign, a masterclass in marrying timeless style with a touch of contemporary panache.

Fronting the campaign is Agot Isidro, a doyenne of Philippine cinema whose grace and poise transcend the vagaries of trends. Photographed by London-based Karl King Aguna and styled by Daryl Chang, Isidro embodies a timeless elegance that transcends mere seasons.

Adorned in a selection from Homme et Femme’s impressive roster—Lemaire’s clean lines, the subtle subversion of Maison Margiela, the Parisian je ne sais quoi of Moreau Paris—Isidro exemplifies the art of dressing not for fleeting trends, but for cultivated taste. Each piece whispers of quality and understated luxury, a testament to the discerning eye of Homme et Femme.

Jappy Gonzalez, the brand’s founder, echoes this sentiment. “She has a stellar career that remains untarnished. Agot is intellectual, articulate, principled, yet full of grace and class—all characteristics of our ideal customer,” he says.

So, for those who appreciate the allure of classic silhouettes imbued with a touch of modern finesse, Homme et Femme’s Summer 2024 collection offers a refreshing symphony, a timeless melody composed of impeccable tailoring, luxurious fabrics, and a touch of contemporary verve.
