A new fashion capital

Penshoppe proves once and for all that no other brand can throw a shopping party quite like them.

In celebration of the opening of its newest flagship store in UP Town Center, the country’s favorite casualwear brand recently gathered together some of the country’s fashion authorities, top models, and up-and-coming celebrities in UP Town Center for a night of fun, sweet treats, rad music, and nothing less than the most up-to-date fashion styles.

“As a brand that represents the youth’s vitality and taste for adventure, we need to make sure that our new flagship store gets the welcome party it deserves” shares Penshoppe’s Brand Director Jeff Bascon.

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. As its biggest store in Metro Manila, it is the one place to go to if you want to check out all of Penshoppe’s latest offerings.

Bascon says, “One of our biggest considerations when designing Penshoppe Capital is to make it a destination—one that people will seek out. 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 a bit edgy yet still maintains that feel-good vibe that Penshoppe is known for. It’s 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.”
