When we hear or see the word "kenkoy" we usually think of something funny or hilarious person doing a comic relief. Fortunately, SOLO brings new meaning to the word "Kenkoy" inspired by the 1st serialized cartoon strip in the country.

Many of you might remember the first ever Pinoy Cartoonist memorabilia collection featuring Larry Alcala Slice of Life last year. I still remember during the launch I even joined Solo's contest of finding Larry on his ever classic comic strip. Many people reminisce those Sunday's when they're eyes are completely glued on Slice of Life cartoon strip to just look for his iconic caricature face of Larry.

This creative collection has got us all hooked! Due to insistent demand, SOLO isbrings out another innovation, its 2nd installment of the well-lovedPinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia series.This time it features no less than the greatest work of the Father ofPhilippine Cartoons, Tony Velasquez’s KENKOY.

This year, old meets new as Solo Pinoy Cartoonist Memorablia takes timeless Kenkoy comic strips and mixes it up on trendy silhouettes and fabrics with different treatments such as foil printing, embroidery, embossed printing, flocking, high density printing and washed effect. The collection consists of His & Hers graphic tees, polo shirts, woven tops and dresses, men’s long sleeves, shorts and accessories such as stainless necklaces and sling bags, gift sets like watches, vanity sets and lighters and will hit Solo stores in September. Each Memoriabilia Series item will have its own bio-tag of Tony Velasquez as well asits own unique packaging.

If you have seen my wardrobe, you will see that I'm fond of wearing stripes or plaid designs. This "kenkoy" design provides a great twist to the usual plaid tops that I have.

I also like this from the collection aside from its stripe plus subtle comic strip design. One will instantly get the person glued on your top...reading the comic strips on it.

I love this simple white v-neck shirt on the collection. Quite a resemblance to the Alcala collection but really it gives an aura of the cartoon lover in you.

I like this design because of its kenkoy twist as well. I think this will suit my personality that is casual/formal "yuppie" with a great sense of humor inside. Great to wear on your casual Friday's attire line-up.

To complete the wardrobe, I like this watch as an accessory to your kenkoy get-up. I like the combination of casual black watch with kenkoy graphic. Sure you will now love to see as the time flies by...
