Bringing together style and sophistication, lifestyle brand Spectre Manila aims for nothing more than to uphold and redefine what it means to be a Filipino gentleman in today’s generation.
This standard reflects in the different brands, products, and services they provide for consumers. Located at Bonifacio High Street, the center of business and lifestyle in the Metro, Spectre’s newest pop-up store showcases unique labels, aesthetic, and a variety of lifestyle products.
Opening only last June 30, Spectre’s pop-up carries international brands and products ready for the modern gentleman. Most popular would be their Freitag bags. Originally from Switzerland, this luxury bag brand sells bags in all shapes, sizes, and designs. From backpacks, tote bags, to even laptop sleeves and pouches in different colors and patterns, Freitag bags also pride themselves in using upcycled tarpaulin as the main material for their products. So not only are they stylish, they’re also sustainable and environment friendly.
In addition to the bags of Freitag, Spectre also provides modern and fashionable men’s clothing, accessories, and grooming products. With dress shirts from Vanny and ties from Frey (both brands being imported from Italy), no doubt Spectre can assist you in dressing to impress, whether it’s for your own benefit or for a loved one.
You can even check out Isidore, another brand available at Spectre, for beautifully crafted watches, bow-ties, and accessories to add to the modern man look. And, to top it all off, check out Fulton & Roark for your grooming necessities to keep it neat and classy.
If you’re more into useful accessories and objects to help you on the go, Spectre can also be the perfect place. Look for brands like Orbitkey and Secrid for items to level up your style, while also allowing you to cleverly maintain your organization.
Orbitkey, having bases in Melbourne, New York, and now a name in the Philippines, prides itself in selling key holders that provide consumers with a practical item to help carry essentials. They sell key rings, holders, USBs, and more to help in everyday life. Meanwhile, Secrid, made in Holland, sells genuine leather wallets and card holders that are especially designed to protect your valuables in this new age of technology.
With all these high-quality products right at your doorstep, there’s no telling how one can elevate his (or even her) sense of style, class, and even individuality. Head on over to Spectre Manila’s pop-up to learn more about what’s in store!
