Smart Infinity Members enjoy chic ready-to-wear pieces with Rajo Laurel’s Eden Collection.

Makati, July 2018— While the months of June to August mark the start of the rainy season for the Philippines, taste makers and sartorialists relive summer once more as retailers unveil their most playful and vibrant pieces with the kick-off of cruise wear season.

Rajo9 (L-R: Smart infinity Head of Loyalty Gino Belgira, AVP & Head of VIP Embassy Relationship Management and SMART Infinity Core Sandra Laurel, House of Laurel General Manager Venisse Laurel-Hermano, Rajo Laurel, Smart Infinity Head of Roaming Mitch Ilano)

In his latest cruise collection, celebrated fashion designer Rajo Laurel pushes the boundaries of ready-to-wear with an assemblage of pieces fit for work, travel and even formal events—truly catering to the modern-day Filipina’s versatile schedule and lifestyle.

Inspired by lush tropical greens and flora, the collection titled, “Eden,” features prints and hues reminiscent of the natural evolution of colors in a botanical garden. Rajo, who says that he’s always been enamored with the color green, knew that the theme somehow would find its way back to his work in form or another.

To allow customers to experience his vision, the designer transformed his studio into a botanical haven by juxtaposing his collection with foliage and flowerage.

As per usual, the collection’s launch exuded the elegance and innovation signature of Laurel’s brand as Bizu curated a special menu for the event and MAC provided free make-overs throughout the day.

As part of their membership privileges, patrons of Smart Infinity were treated to one-of-a-kind perks during the launch of the collection at both the House of Laurel headquarters in Poblacion last July 13 and the RAJO! Store branches in Powerplant Mall and Shangri-la Plaza last July 20.

On top of a first look into the brand’s latest collection, the famed retailer extended special discounts to Smart Infinity members for a minimum spend at each of the launch events.

Smart Infinity gives back through charities


Steadfast in its commitment to provide world-class and exclusive services to the Filipino people, Smart Infinity goes beyond being a premium service provider by enabling its members to “Lead The Change.” Recently, the premium postpaid brand of Smart Communications Inc. hosted a private lunch honoring several subscribers at The Peninsula Manila. Smart Infinity took the opportunity not only to thank its loyal members, but also shared its advocacy to create positive opportunities for change for the Filipino community.

During the event, Smart Infinity extended its support to the Kalipay Negrense Foundation and Feed The Children Inc., on behalf of its members.

“As a Smart Infinity subscriber, I am honored to be with a brand that supports the things I believe in. I am happy that the brand leads the change by showing that it’s not only about connectivity but also about people,” shared one of the Infinity subscribers present at the event.

Sharing this commitment to lead the change by empowering and uplifting Filipinos are Infinity brand ambassadors Raul and Joanna Francisco, and Donnie and Crickette Tantoco. Both couples have been avid advocates for positive change in the lives of others.

Donnie, the president of Rustan’s Supercenters Inc., believes every Filipino has the right to a better quality of life. Through the Rustan’s Group, he and his wife Crickette want to bring superior customer service to all.
Raul and Joanna, fashion and art entrepreneurs and retailers, are strong supporters of Filipino artisans and artists. Through their businesses, they ensure that they are able to give back to the community, through Kalipay Negrense Foundation, a non-profit organization close to their hearts.

The Kalipay Negrense Foundation Inc. was founded to help the growing number of disadvantaged children in Negros Occidental. What is a now non-profit foundation working for the causes of disadvantaged children—the homeless, physically and sexually abused, malnourished, out of school and youngsters with special needs—started as an effort of a group of people who wanted to make a difference in the lives of these kids.

“Kalipay Negrense’s story is one that’s filled with miracles. We give disadvantaged children hope and a home. At Kalipay, these children are rehabilitated and educated to have a second chance in life and grow up to become productive citizens. We have rescued toddlers who have been so abused they could hardly walk. But there is always hope. We are very thankful to Smart Infinity and Raul and Joanna Francisco,” said Jay Abello, who represented the Negros Occidental-based organization.

“Our family, even our children, is involved with Kalipay Negrense. I am very proud to represent Smart Infinity, which leads the change and believes in things that matter,” said Joanna.

Donnie and Crickette Tantoco, on the other hand, supported Feed the Children, a nongovernment organization with this mission of ending hunger among children worldwide. The Tantocos are also Smart Infinity brand ambassadors.
Since 1984, Feed the Children has worked with kids in the Philippines, expanding their work beyond meals to developing community independence.
Smart Infinity also enjoined its subscribers present at the event to help the two non-profit organizations in any way they can.

“We are proud that Smart Infinity’s brand ambassadors are leading the change not only in their personal and professional lives, but with others as well. They are truly individuals who embody the core values of the brand” said Julie Carceller, Head of Smart Infinity and Smart’s Multi-Segment Marketing.

Manila’s icons of art and retail lead the change as Smart Infinity’s newest ambassadors

JULY 23, 2016 -- Steadfast in its commitment to welcome change. Smart unveiled a new set of faces to lead its premium postpaid brand, Smart Infinity. The couples embody the vision of Smart as it moves forward in changing the way people connect in meaningful ways. Smart renews ties with retail royalties Donnie and Crickette Tantoco, who is joined this year by fashion’s power couple Raul and Joanna Francisco to support Smart Infinity in its goal of delivering topnotch service to Filipinos.

BEING GAME CHANGERS

As transformative figures in their fields of influence, the Tantocos and the Franciscos seek to bridge gaps for the Filipino. They full embody the vision of Smart Infinity of allowing every member to experience the best of the digital world while curating these experiences according to their passions. Smart Infinity ambassador Donnie Tantoco describes how he makes the choices that set the trends. “First of all, we have to understand our customer very, very well–how she likes to dress herself in the different occasions of her life, whether she’s at work, whether she’s socializing, whether she’s travelling. So we try to understand her lifestyle.” “If you look at the DNA of Smart and the innovation they have done over the years, I think I see them parallel with us in our own small way that we are also innovators. We embrace that DNA of leading change, we saw this is something we can really integrate into our lives — the privileges, the services, the concierge,” says new brand ambassador Raul Francisco.

LEAD THE CHANGE

Smart recently launched a new logo and along with it, a slew of innovations that make it easier for its members to fully live the Smart Life. “We want to recognize not only those who have conquered their boundaries and attained success in their own lives, but those who have done well in sparking change in other people’s lives as well. We want to inspire others to follow suit by providing them excellent technology and services -- tools they need to start leading the change”, says Julie Carceller, Head of Smart Infinity and Smart’s Multi-Segment Marketing. Held at the Provenance Art Gallery at the Fort, the launch provided a well-curated experience for guests as they were treated to an evening of exquisite art, food, and music.
