In November last year, we told you about former Top Gear Philippines colleagues Chad Rosario and Jaykee Evangelista putting up their own car-themed shirt brand called First/We/Drive. They initially offered their products online (mainly via their Facebook page), but then a few companies started commissioning them for exclusive shirt designs.

One of those companies is Mazda Philippines, which asked FWD to develop a lifestyle line dedicated to the Japanese car brand. Called the Mazda Collection, the merchandise features four shirt designs, which are priced as follows:

  • Mazda logo – P650
  • Mazda R360 – P650
  • Mazda Miata – P700
  • Mazda 787B – P700

The designs are also available on hoodies, which sell for P1,500 each.

To make the Mazda Collection a well-rounded assortment of lifestyle products, FWD also rendered the designs on other items:

  • Umbrella – P1,000
  • Tote bag – P750

Our personal favorite is the tote bag, which is made of fine-quality canvas and sized just right.

Want to purchase these items? You may do so at this weekend’s “Zoom Fest” event at the Big Bear activity area of Bonifacio High Street in Bonifacio Global City. You will recall that this affair was originally scheduled for Father’s Day weekend, but Mazda Philippines had to postpone it due to inclement weather at the time. The annual celebration of all things Mazda, which kicked off yesterday (July 27), will be held until tomorrow (July 29). Admission is free (the Mazda Collection is not).
