As we launch our second capsule collection, here’s a peek into the mind of the multi-faceted personality that is ANDROGYNE's Creative Director, Luis Espiritu. With over twenty years experience in fashion, this mentor, teacher and creative consultant is a true style influencer.
What do you like about being a designer?
I would like to think of myself as a renaissance artist. I love the process of creation executed in various mediums of expression. Sparks in my subconscious flow into my consciousness that result in various collaborations.
What was your inspiration for your collaboration with Seek the Uniq?
ANDROGYNE is deeply rooted in the idea of creating a genderless wardrobe. Beyond stereotypes and tradition, my concept is to develop a capsule collection that both men and women can style for everyday wear. Inspired by global trends, history, design and fabrication, every piece is a tapestry of ideas of relevant fashion.
What can we expect from your designs and who do you envision wearing your creations?
The core of ANDROGYNE is inspired by Japanese silhouettes fused with Italian textures. The vision is to create an insightful and new avenue in contemporary dressing in the local style landscape and hopefully, transcend into Philippine culture. A variety of fabrication, palettes of complimenting hues, and distinct patters echo throughout the collection of form and function. Comfort is not compromised. It is not a statement or an irreverent approach to the classic code dressing. ANDROGYNE showcases the beauty of uniqueness without borders or boundaries.
Luis' Best Meal
My best meals are always with the company I keep that fills me up with love, laughter and happiness.
With friends at STU Turns Two
Discovering new things, places, and meeting interesting faces.
Pristine beaches and remote islands away from the concrete jungle with friends and family.

Best Wardrobe Staple
There is no best but I would say a handful of reinvented classics that you can create a wardrobe-full of ideas.
Best Way to Unwind
Let go of the concept of time.
Give your time and energy to those who do the same to you.
