BUM Equipment enters a new phase in design evolution, unpredictable and evolving. That seems to be the new design philosophy of local clothing brand BUM Equipment. If last year, BUM offered clothes that solely highlighted the emo-punk trend, this time, the brand is once again uping the style ante by creating a new collection that plays up the stylish glam-punk trend.
According to Bienvenido P. Reyes, senior merchandiser and designer for BUM Equipment, this move was driven by the increasing demand of an older market. Reyes says, "The emo-punk trend captured the teen market. Of course, some of these loyal followers have now grown up. But even then, they still want to patronize BUM. That's why we are somehow broadening the design concept of the brand to capture that new market."
Although BUM Equipment is entering a new phase, its trademark "rebel" look, which its loyal followers have grown to love, will still be there: splashy colors, tribal elements, and wild prints.For its upcoming collections, including its Summer Collection 2012, BUM will bring in new elements like outlined and geometric shapes, paisleys, plaids, and stripes. It will also bring in motorcycle jackets, shiny blouses, vests, tapered pants, cardigans, oversized T-shirts, Daisy-Dukes shorts, and studded pieces.
Part of BUM's evolution is also the introduction of new silhouettes, cuts, and fabrics. Loyal BUM followers can now expect pieces made of knit, twills, leather, rayon, foils, and other fabrics that are not normally utilized by other local brands. Reyes explains, "I guess people will be seeing new offerings for BUM more often. Before, we just focused on tees. Our jackets were limited. The variety was not that wide. This time, we will introduce new pieces every season. That's something that fashionistas, both young and old, can look forward to in the coming months."
This summer, BUM offers their limited edition Tumbler for free by collecting five (5) stickers in one (1) card for every purchase worth of P 400. Promo starts March 1 until April 30, 2012.
BUM Equipment is available in leading department stores nationwide.
