Penshoppe welcomes Lucky Blue Smith to Manila



 
Lucky Blue Smith interviews at Conrad Manila
Close encounter with Lucky Blue Smith at Conrad Manila
Lucky Blue Smith was launched as a Penshoppe ambassador back in February when he became the face of the brand’s Spring/Summer campaign. The 18-year old, who hails from Los Angeles, got scouted to become a model at the young age of 10. By 12, he had already signed up with an international modeling agency. Last year, the six-foot-two-inch model—with his piercing blue eyes and platinum hair—skyrocketed to international fame, especially online, with people dubbing him as the male equivalent of Cara Delevingne. He’s young, hot, and currently breathing the same air as you. International supermodel and Penshoppe ambassador, Lucky Blue Smith, is currently in Manila to frontline a fashion show at the Conrad Manila, which will showcase the brand’s much anticipated pre-holiday collection. In addition to the fashion show, Lucky will also participate in a meet and greet with fans last July 30 at Penshoppe, SM Aura Premier in Bonifacio Global City.
 
Mr. Jeff Bascon
Mr. Jeff Bascon, Brand Director of Penshoppe; Mr. Lucky Blue Smith, Penshoppe Ambassador and Ms. Alice Liu, Golden ABC Executive Vice President for Retail Brands.
“Among the things that Penshoppe is known for is our annual meet and greet where we bring really international personalities to the country,” shares Jeff Bascon, Brand Director of Penshoppe. “We really love doing this because one, it allows these celebrities to get to know the Filipinos better, and the main market that brand they are representing is speaking to. In addition, it also brings global attention to our country, our people, and our culture, which is something that Penshoppe really strives to do.”
 
Monochromatic outfits will always be in season. Pull off that sleek, effortlessly cool urban vibe by playing with contrasts: matching white outerwear with a black & white graphic tee and dark pants.

Lucky will also be featured in Penshoppe’s pre-holiday campaign, Rule the City, alongside the brand’s other ambassadors such as supermodels Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Sean O’Pry with Asian superstars Sandara Park and Mario Maurer. Featuring a myriad of cool and undeniably stylish pieces that come in both dynamic and subdued colors, the collection for this campaign intends to highlight the vibrant and edgy fashion sense of “cool kids” from different parts of the world’s most fashionable metropolises.

Synopsis 1:
IGNACIO DE LOYOLA tells the story of a brash, hot-headed soldier in a time of political upheaval in Spain. The young Iñigo went from living a life of brutal violence and debauchery, to becoming one of the greatest saints in the history of the Church. This film chronicles Iñigo's torturous struggle to turn from darkness to light—a struggle that nearly destroyed him, but also gave him the key to a spiritual weapon that continues to save lives to this very day.

Synopsis 2:
A modern and very human take on the story of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, often called 'The Saint of Second Chances.'

As a brash, hot-headed soldier in a time of political upheaval in Spain, the young Iñigo went from living a life of brutal violence and debauchery, to becoming one of the greatest saints in the history of the Church. This film chronicles Iñigo's torturous struggle to turn from darkness to light—a struggle that nearly destroyed him, but also gave him the key to a spiritual weapon that continues to save lives to this very day.

Produced by Jesuit Communications Philippines (JesCom), IGNACIO DE LOYOLA was shot on location over two months in Spain.

Synopsis 3:
‘IGNACIO’ is a full-length feature film about St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus.  It is an incisive and thrilling look at the life of the real man behind the legend, following his transformation from a brash, impulsive youth obsessed with women and sword-fighting; to the masterful, charismatic leader of an order that would change the face of Christendom.

In his lifelong quest to become the heroic Knight of his fantasies, Ignacio stares death in the face again and again, having his leg shattered by a cannonball in battle; driven to near suicide by his inner demons; finding himself imprisoned, accused of being an illuminati;  and finally finding his life in the hands of the Inquisition. Through it all, he would come to see the hand of God working in his life, shaping the self-obsessed sinner into the loyal and passionate soldier-saint.

The film also shows how Ignacio wove the trials, errors, and lessons of his eventful life into the fabric of his masterpiece, the Spiritual Exercises. Combining clarity of thought with Ignacio’s own love of fantasy and imagination, the Exercises form a rigorous method of making one’s life decisions, and have guided and influenced countless seekers throughout history.
