COS to open first PHL store

COS, the London-based brand known for its modern yet timeless style, will open a branch in the Philippines in early 2021. It will be located in SM Aura in Taguig. “Opening in the Philippines is an exciting step for the COS Brand. We have been hoping to enter the market for some time and I think our new Manila store is a great place to start. I’m excited to see how new customers will engage with our brand and collections,” says Christoffer Sellin, COS Asia Pacific Managing Director. The new store will open with COS Spring/Summer 2021, featuring wardrobe staples from tailored sets to lightweight knitwear and effortless blazers. The collection features sustainably-sourced materials such as organic cottons, jewelry crafted from recycled yoghurt pots and zero-waste seamless knitwear sets, with each piece designed to take the wearer beyond the season.

MUJI to open its largest store in PHL

Japanese lifestyle brand MUJI will open its largest store in the Philippines by the first quarter of 2021. This will be an expansion of its store in Shangri-La Plaza, which temporarily closed for renovation back in September 2020. From a size of 400 sqm, it will expand to 1,400 sqm. The newly expanded Shangri-la Plaza store will showcase various textures and natural materials such as old wood and metal. Around 4,000 items will be available in MUJI Philippines’ largest store, including the brand’s array of everyday life essentials such as health and beauty, stationery, travel, kitchenware, houseware, furniture, and electronics products, as well as men’s and women’s apparel, children’s wear, innerwear, bags, shoes, and accessories. In addition, MUJI Shangri-La Plaza will exclusively introduce to the Philippine market some specialty products and services including MUJI Labo — MUJI’s unisex clothing line, and services such as consultation for furniture, storage, and interior coordination, styling coordination, and product recommendations as provided by MUJI Advisors. This store will also feature the first MUJI Water Refilling Service and Open MUJI area (a space where the brand can showcase MUJI concepts and house various activities) in the Philippines and will reintroduce its best-selling items at better prices with its Price Review Campaign. MUJI also has branches at Greenbelt 3, C1 Bonifacio High Street Central, Power Plant Mall at Rockwell, Shangri-La Plaza East Wing, and SM Mall of Asia.

Lucky objects at Rustan’s for Lunar New Year

FEB. 12 marks the beginning of the Year of the Ox. Rustan’s invites everyone to wish loved ones and friends well this Chinese New Year through meaningful traditions and symbolic gifts. The lucky colors for the new year are red — one of the luckiest colors in Chinese culture and often worn at big celebrations and believed to scare away spirits of bad fortune and is a bearer of happiness and success — and the Pantone Colors of the year, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow, which symbolize stability and assuredness. Rustan’s premium brands feature wide selections in these colors which are perfect for the season. For men, Hackett offers complete apparel and accessories including bright red shirts. Phone accessories and gadgets from Cygnett and Ideal of Sweden are great options for boosting work productivity. For women, brands such as Adolfo Dominguez, Ricardo Preto, Strathberry, LoQ, and Longchamp offer eye-catching pieces ranging from tops, bottoms, bags, and footwear in red, yellow, and grey. Accessorizing for prosperity may also be considered: for example, Christian Louboutin’s logo belt and Aquazzura’s suede sneakers are comfy go-to’s for errands and casual days. For kids, they can spend their hongbaos on toys that stir imagination and curiosity. Lego’s Chinese New Year-themed set familiarizes children with the importance of tradition. Space-themed sandwich cutters from Lunch Punch and cooler bags from SoYoung also make snacks more enjoyable during playtime and home school sessions. Cute backpacks, Banz sunglasses, and Micro bikes and gear will also help children enjoy the rare taste of the outdoors. For the home, decorating in red is believed to bring luck all year long. Gorenje refrigerators in Fire Red add a strong yet minimalistic design to the kitchen. KitchenAid stand mixers come in Empire Red. Finally, tableware from Noritake, Bordallo Pinheiro, Bugatti, and Christofle create a luxurious atmosphere at home reminiscent of fancy dinners at restaurants. Use these on the eve of Chinese New Year for a memorable and stylish celebration. Meanwhile, Rustan’s East Cafe now has nián gāo, better known as tikoy.
