Solo Features Kenkoy + Online Model Search

Last year, Solo launched their first ever Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia featuring Larry Alcara's Slice of Life, which was a big hit as people, young and old alike, took a trip down memory lane to relive their childhood days looking for the iconic face of Larry Alcala in a Sunday magazine. How cool it was to own a shirt wherein you could look and find Larry Alcala in it!

This year, they're doing it again! Due to popular demand, Solo will be launching their second installment of the well-loved Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia Series, featuring no less than the greatest work of the Father of Philippine Cartoons, Tony Velasquez's KENKOY. This new collection will be launched on September 1, 2011. I am truly glad to celebrate and re-introduce to today's youth our very talented local artists.

Long before artistas were in the limelight, there was already Francisco Harabas, a Philippine pop icon better known as Kenkoy. This unique character's fashion sense was heavily influenced by Western culture with his hair slicked back and him all decked in suspenders, charol shoes, and baggy pants. Kenkoy became a hit and gained huge following due to his wit, humor, antics, colonial way of thinking, and carabao-English. Considered as the most successful and most influencial comic strip in the Philippines, Kenkoy was soon adapted to movies and a musical act.

Solo's latest collection features Kenkoy comic strips on trendy silhouettes and fabrics with different treatments such as foil printing, emrboidery, embossed printing, flocking, high density printing, and washed effect.

How about a sneak peek of their new collection?
