H&M announces opening in the Philippines

The opening of H&M in the Philippines is no longer a rumor as Swedish retail giant H&M Hennes & Mauritz AB has announced the signing of a contract for its first store opening in Manila, Philippines.
The flagship store will open in 2014 at SM Megamall.

Unfortunately no other details are offered, but my source tells me the H&M store at the new Megamall Annex C will occupy three floors.

    I’m glad they’ll open in Pinas na. It’s cheaper and you’ll get the quality you paid for. But they’re really above average quality as opposed to other mas mamahaling brands pero poor quality din.

    pang-masa naman talaga ang market ng H&M kaya nga the prices are affordable for the low-income to middle -income brackets.

    Pang-masa lang sya kung taga US, Europe or rich countries ka. Pero kung masang pinoy ang sinasabi mo. Ang masa dito sa pinas ay mahirap talaga pang divisoria na P100.00 to 200.00 na blouse ang kayang bilin. Now, with some 76 million people earning P5,000 per person on average per month or LESS, kaya mas marami ang sinasabi mong masa. Kaya nman di na yan bibili pa sa H&M. Kasi ako nakakabili ako ng H&M sa SG and HK lng, affordable sya para sakin. Even I consider myself as high middle class, earning .5 to 1 million pesos a year and single. kaya hanggang lacoste , zara, H&M and uniqlo lng din ako. Kaya kung sa pinas na standards ang gagamitin mo, H&M is not for low-income earners, pati nga lower middle class baka minsan lng bibili sa H&M. May subdivision din kc ang middle class. Sa pinas mejo high end natong H&M. Example nalang jan ang Bench pag ang masa nakabili na ng bench tingin nila mejo social na sila (pinoy term – social – may class) pero ung mayayaman cyempre tingin masang masa na yang bench.

    that’s my point..,and I gave you the example of Payless Shoes. I do not earn as much as you do, that’s why I don’t buy Lacste, Zara and Uniqlo…:-)

    I don’t get it. Are you saying that “class” defines on what brand people wear? I have known some ultra-wealthy (in dollars) individuals who wears T-shirts and pants from Target, Walmart, etc., wear flip flops, Casio watches, and raybans, yet presentable. I really think that ultra high end fashion is spending a lot of money to look cheap. You see, trends come and go as fast one could wink, but your own personal style stays with you and that is your own personal brand which is only unique to you.

    Hey, Elisabeth Hasselbeck wanna be. Please read it carefully, “tingin nila mejo social”, “tingin ng mayayaman pang masa”. Intindihin at namnamin mo ang bawat salita. Hindi ko tingin yun tingin ng nila. In reality pinoys are brand conscious. Kaya kung ikaw kaya mong maging fashionable sa damit ng ukay ukay at divisoria, eh di good for you. Tumigil ka na sa I don’t get it mo. Intindihin mo.

    HUH? were you insulted? didn’t mean to. Some of my Pinoy friends aren’t brand conscious but own several businesses and real estate but shops in garage sales and purchase used vehicles. Their businesses earn in a day and much more than what you earn in a year! Their significant contribution to charity such as Haiyan speaks louder than those who are brand conscious people who for the most part don’t really have anything to show for it.

    I have news for you Bree …not all “branded” clothes fits and looks good, even those ultra-high end brands. Seldom these days that one can find perfectly fitted clothes, low or high-end brands. What one needs, is to find a good seamstress that can do good alterations. Even those used clothes from eons ago can be altered, updated, and can really look great not to mention the finest materials that is non-existence in today’s market. Worn with minimal accessories, and there you have it.

    H&M in Europe is actually pang masa. They have nice pieces but I find most of the stuff affordable design and quality wise. They’re always on sale pa in Sweden. I remember buying chinos for less than 1k if you convert it to Philippine Peso. I’m glad they’re coming here. Gives everyone better choices.

    wouldn’t it be overpriced there? Payless Shoes in the US are really affordable and cater to the lower income bracket, but when you go to Payless Philippines, everything is over a thousand pesos….it’s not “payless”

    H&M and Forever 21 are knock-offs of luxury brands like Valentino, Alexander Wang, Versace, etc. They are “runway- inspired” aka copycats and mass-produced for those who are on a budget. So really, it is not as pangsosyal as you think it is.

    I must say most of those clothes are quite stylish, just as you stated, they are knock-offs of luxury brands. The fabric they use for say, F21 are nothing to speak of, worn once and discard, sort kind of thing.
    What define “pangsosyal” kind of clothing or styles? just curious.
