Trip to Univers

Guess where I was today?

Not in Tokyo, but pretty close.
Homme et Femme Univers has finally opened at One Rockwell, outside the mall.
The place is huge with a high ceiling, lots of glass. Very Ed Calma, who designed the 500-square-meter space.
Carla Sibal welcomed me inside.

I didn’t know where to start looking, so I began on the left side at the men’s section. Started at the Y-3 section, worked my way towards Margiela, Comme des Garçons Play, Rick Owens and the Porter bags.

There are furniture pieces for sale. I love that everything is priced, so you don’t have to ask.

Magazines, so you don’t have to make pabili abroad, such as Self Service, Acne Paper, Monocle, Arena Homme Plus, Men’s Non-no, Casa Brutus, and Vogue Nippon, plus home decor

 To have a store like this in Manila tells me two things: 1) That Manila NOW has a market not only for luxury items, but for the quirky avant garde luxury items. 2) That years and years of Cecile’s Blog has in a way helped create and educate a taste for this Japanese style. so congrats! hehe. But I do wonder what the pricepoints are compared to HK or Tokyo for example… hmm…

I also love the plaster foot and head. I went there last Friday to buy both (both are from France) but the head still didn’t have a price so they asked for my name and cellphone number and said that they would text me. Well it’s been 3 days since and still no text. Oh well it’s their loss, I really did plan on buying both. Now I don’t know na. I’m TO by their customer relations.
