MBaldemor x beabi Floral Symphony Collection
For the last decade, local lifestyle concept beabi has been providing innovative, multi-functional travel and storage accessories for the modern Filipino traveler. What started out as a one-stop shop for travel bottles, bag organizers, and cosmetic kits has now expanded its product line-up to include fashion bags ranging from statement totes to bags personalized with one’s name or initials.
Now celebrating its 10th year, beabi once again breaks new ground by collaborating with world renowned Filipino artist Manuel Baldemor. Best known for his geometric paintings, beabi will be showcasing another side of the artist with the MBaldemor x beabi Floral Symphony Collection. The collection will consist of printed bags and pouches featuring rarely publicized floral paintings by Manuel Baldemor which have only been exhibited abroad. Baldemor pays tribute to flowers as a “symbol of love and peace”. According to him, flowers are an indispensable element of the Filipino landscape.
“A simple flower…has a certain peace and tranquility you can take into yourself,” Baldemor said. “(They) are universal, and a symbol of love and peace. They speak directly to our hearts and have their own secret and unspoken language of diplomacy.”
Combining functionality, aesthetics, and art, beabi hopes to bring Baldemor’s art to a wider audience, making it more accessible to people from all walks of life. With the MBaldemor x beabi Floral Symphony Collection, one does not need to spend a fortune to bring a piece of his art home.
The MBaldemor x beabi Floral Symphony Collection consists of 3 designs: Flowers Are A Joy Forever, Flowers Speak From The Heart, and Amazing Grace. The collection was unveiled at the Ronac Art Center in Ortigas on Nov. 4, 2019. These limited edition bags will retail for P2,495 each. The entire collection will be available at all beabi stores nationwide as well as online at https://beabi.com.ph/ until stocks last.
