It’s a printed matter! We kick off this summer with color and prints (lots of it!). For Rustan’s Culte Femme, bold color is the new black this summer. As fashion flashes back to the decade of 1970s this season, we are offering you our hand-picked favorites inspired by this era.

In the Age of Facebook and Twitter, Journalism Rules Still Apply This year’s graduates may have cut their teeth on new media where stories are sourced and shared in new ways but the old fundamentals of journalism—accuracy, balance, ethics, attribution—hold true as ever.
Reuters Philippine Bureau Chief John Mair told students this at the Thomson Reuters forum “Journalism: Challenges and Opportunities,” part of UP College of Mass Communication’s 46th foundation week talk-series. “Anyone can blog, tweet or post video but both the challenge and opportunity is sifting for what’s relevant and true from streaming information, putting that in context, and explaining its meaning.” Mair cited how the recent anniversary-celebration of the peaceful EDSA people-power revolt of February 1986 presents a counterpoint on how covering media has changed—compared to say, real-time reports of violence as the Libya uprising unfolded.
