About the Collection

Celebrating today’s openness to freedom of expression is a timely tribute to one of the brave souls who embraced the art of expression since Martial Law. We are talking about the multi-hyphenate, renowned National Artist for Literature, Bienvenido Lumbera, one of our few remaining living treasured National Artists.

The poet who introduced a new aesthetic to traditional Tagalog literature, turned dramatist then professor to top universities merits Freeway’s Filipino National Artist Collectors Series for 2014 featuring one of his recognized composition, The Yaya’s Lullaby. The 10 piece fashion collection tribute is composed of vibrant floral mosaic prints matching Lumbera’s literary aesthetic. Rich colored prints on halter sleeveless tops, shirts, and dresses in flowy cuts which can be worn from day-to-night make up the collection that will be in stores this May.  The collection uses comfortable material such as satinized twills and poplins for the casual work wear to stretch georgettes and knits for the weekend get-up.

Get ready to wear another Literature x Fashion comeback highlighting Bienvenido Lumbera’s emotional piece translated into visually attractive silhouettes.

Thanks to Janilyn ( for the footwear.
