French gift shop Pylones opens at Rockwell

I still remember the first Pylones store I ever saw—at Harbour City, Hong Kong—more than five years ago.
That place is always full.

As a lover of colorful things and stationery, I can’t resist a Pylones store whenever I see one. I just have to walk in and buy something. It feels like I’m buying myself a present.
French gift shop Pylones (pronounced “pee-loan”) opened its first store in Paris in 1987, selling colorful functional gift items. The idea is to take an ordinary object and make it extraordinary through a splash of colors and whimsical design, made by a team of passionate artists in France.

With nearly 100 stores worldwide, Pylones opens its first ever shop in the Philippines today at the 2nd level of Powerplant Mall in Rockwell Center, Makati.
Some of you may have seen this barricade at Rockwell or SM Aura.

I got a sneak peek at what’s behind the barricade and got to be their first customer at Rockwell.

It’s amazing, the store is finished! It looks just like any Pylone store in Europe, with the colorful drums in the middle of the space.

The 78-square-meter space is much larger than the one in Hong Kong

Sensory overload! I didn’t know where to start looking or taking pictures, so I just shot anything.

    some are exceptionally cute but most of the products are pretty ordinary or have more affordable versions in malls.

    Yay! I frequent the Causeway Bay store here in HK and you really can’t help but keep browsing. Yun nga lang, I usually don’t stay long because the riot of colors usually give me a headache. :D
