Solo Channels Larry Alcala

Sunday, August 29, 2010
As a kid, I remember reading "Slice of Life" and thinking how interesting Larry Alcala's style was. Instead of several panels, he incorporated them into one panel that showed multiple things happening at once. It's no wonder he is a legend. Talent like his does not go unnoticed.

To honor Mr. Alcala's genius, Solo has created the Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia by Larry Alcala collection. Aside from tops and dresses, the collection also includes bags, notebooks and mugs.

My favorite item from the entire collection is this ladies' dress.

I've always been partial to jeans and t-shirts so a dress has to be very special to catch my eye. I love the contrast of violet on white on this dress. It's attention-catching but not overly so. It's the kind of outfit that would look good on anyone.

Speaking of which, Solo is also launching its' Online Model Search. You could follow in the footsteps of last year's winners Jaggy Tallada and Jhonna Flor. All you have to do is submit a picture of yourself wearing something from the collection. You can also enhance your photograph using graphic elements provided on the website. Click on the link above for more details.

You can also view Solo's Facebook and Twitter sites to learn more about the collection and the model search.
