ALL THE FASHION WE LOVE FROM #CELEBRATEMEGAWITHKATHNIEL

Posted By: Patti Salas - Monday, November 07, 2016

The nine epic covers of #CelebrateMEGAwithKathNiel which were revealed on Friday totally had our jaws hitting the floor (nine times, but who’s counting?) Our one humdrum of a weekend was broken with dreamy images of KathNiel, sweeping glaciers, and don’t even get us started on the breathtakingly beautiful fashion! I mean, have you seen that brown leather skirt on teen queen Kathryn and the fur slip-ons to match? (Check our Instagram if you haven’t!) All the clothes are so on point, we want to steal everything! Except we’d probably die of heatstroke if we wore all those layers of fur in Manila. So let’s all just take a minute or two to daydream about these lovely creations and the beautiful pair wearing them.


DANIEL’S DENIM JACKET AND FUR STOLES AND KATHRYN’S BROWN PARKA WITH FUR TRIMMING: PERFECT!



DANIEL’S EMERALD GREEN CORDUROY JACKET WITH EMBELLISHMENTS IS SO FETCH!



THIS WHITE FLEECE SWEATER ACCESSORIZED BY A PLAIN BLACK STOLE GIVES KAT SUCH A CLEAN, CLASSIC LOOK



THAT GREEN EMBELLISHED BOMBER JACKET WOULD LOOK GOOD ON US, TOO!



WE ESPECIALLY LOVE KATHRYN’S FUR COAT WITH OVOID SLEEVES OVER THAT EMBROIDERED TOP

THE WORLD IS READY FOR #CELEBRATEMEGAWITHKATHNIEL

Posted By: Karlo Simon - Friday, November 04, 2016


Barely a minute after the first cover was revealed at MEGA Magazine’s social media pages, the #CelebrateMEGAwithKathNiel cover spread like wildfire, comments flooded in, and everyone basically lost all their chill. And we’re not surprised. All nine MEGA and MEGA Man covers, shot amidst the majestic beauty of Iceland are nothing short of… how do we put it–perfect! Kathryn oozes with allure and captivating elegance, while Daniel is dashing and exudes masculinity, charm, and  an air of cool that takes your breath away.



MEGA’s iconic November issue will be available exclusively in National Bookstore @nbsalert.
