Inspiration meets innovation, which Platinum customers get to enjoy as Globe launches an exclusive collection consisting of pieces made by renowned Filipino artists.
Now available for pre-order are creations by the telco’s new ambassadors—Leeroy New, Jay Oliva, and Reese Ruiz—which comprise the limited edition Platinum Series.
New, a globally lauded Filipino visual artist and designer, created the Star Cluster, an upcycled sculpture made to liven up the space. Inspired by two large-scale sculptural installations, it is a massive vessel that resembles a colony on a different planet and Mebuyan’s Vessel – a semi-architectural spaceship.
“When I create, it’s a response – a response to the needs of the world. There’s a continuous dialogue between my hands and the objects they touch,” said New.
Customers are assured no two pieces are exactly alike. Star Cluster is available for P10,499.
Meanwhile, Oliva, the Filipino-American showrunner and executive producer of the Netflix hit series Trese, created a 76-page hardbound compilation of meticulously crafted artworks inspired by the series. The Art Behind Netflix’s Trese also contains never-before-seen imagery of Alexandra Trese’s journey to the underworld.
Priced at P10,499, the limited release art book aims to offer an inside look into “the creative mind of the person who made it happen”.
“As a filmmaker, I breathe life into fantastic ideas and create live-action and animated films. As an educator, I help the next generation bring more fantastic ideas to life. I’d like to think that my purpose is to entertain and, at the same time, inspire new talent,” shared Oliva.
Social entrepreneur Ruiz brings the craftsmanship of her fashion and design house Rags2Riches to the sustainable line she created for the Platinum Series. Dubbed the Mundo Collection, it consists of backpack, carry-all, cross-body bag, and travel parka made using upcycled woven textiles, indigenous fabrics, and locally sourced leather.
The pieces are hand-made by artisans from Metro Manila. “As an entrepreneur of a fashion and design house empowering community artisans, I find connections between people, ideas, concepts, and purpose – and weave them together,” shared Ruiz.
Prices of bags start at P5,999, while the parka is available for P4,999.
Each purchase from the Platinum Series will be matched with a donation to World Vision as part of the #ForFutureHeroes campaign. Go to globe.com.ph for more information or to pre-order the aforementioned items.
