Few weeks ago, Penshoppe recently released its Summer 2017 collection along with the opening of its newest flagship store dubbed as—Penshoppe Capital. The collection features a myriad of stylishly trendy pieces that are not only affordable, but keeps you stylishly suitable for Philippine weather, yet as always takes cue from global fashion trends.
On the same day, we had an impromptu shopping spree at the same branch. I went on a panic since most of the items are new and not of those that I was eyeing days before the actual shopping. Join me as I list down some of my lessons.
KEEP CALM AND GO SUMMER READY
With Globe Wanderland happening this weekend, My picks has to be inspired by the free spirit of music and arts festivals. Good thing I found a handful of neutrals and mutable colors to incorporate in my looks.
The problem is, how to think of what to wear in an ocean of new items I am not familiar of??? Keep Calm Duane! hahahha So I look around and realized what were those brand ambassadors for. They represent a particular branding, a certain style so I took what I am most related with.

Quoting the Press Article’s description about Mario:
“Just like Mario, you too can look like an Asian superstar with this ensemble that matches pink cotton shirt and light denim button-down together with walking shorts and sneakers. Casual, comfortable, and appropriate for both out-of-towns and city strolls, this look captures the true essence of summer.”
Lookbook | Summer Ready With Penshoppe
Well since my features are quite feminine, I’ll try to avoid such colors and focus on the silhouette describes as “…comfortable, and appropriate for both out-of-towns and city strolls…” Got my self, a Modern Fit Shorts and ehem trying something new, to wear something from the female section, a Lotus Pants. Both made out of cotton
Since Summer ready doesn’t just mean it has to be under the heat, I also got my self a jacket that I can use in Baguio, Sagada or just inside a very cold air-conditioned facility as you know Philippines is a “Forever Summer Country” and everything has to be breathable and good for cold places.
For this event I fashioned my branding with Mario and Lucky (Ay waw), just stay tuned for my Lookbook tho Im still busy with my personal life so stay tuned.
Aside from the Hauls, I took some interesting shots around the place:
What Duane Saw
Make It a Destination
Dubbed Penshoppe Capital, the 800-square meter fashion haven features an edgy yet minimalist layout with white walls, floors, and ceiling. It also has giant LED screens playing the brand’s latest campaigns in place of display windows.
“One of our biggest considerations when designing Penshoppe Capital is to make it a destination,” shares Jeff Bascon, Penshoppe’s Brand Director. “In order to do this, we need to create a unique shopping experience. That’s when we thought about playing with space. The store is laid out in such a way that shoppers can easily move from one section to the next and allows everyone to have a clear view of the brand’s offerings at a macro perspective.”
Aside from my blogger friends who tagged a gazillion photo of us during the event, let me post some of the people who inspire me with their craft as a people who works behind fashion industry 😀
Penshoppe Capital at UP Town Center is home to Penshoppe’s biggest selection of fashion pieces. From fresh drops to classic favorites like essential shirts and DenimLab pants, it will be the one place where anyone can go to see everything that the brand offers at a specific time.
