Bric’s opens flagship store in Manila

When it comes to stylish, chic and sensible luggage, Bric’s comes to mind. The Italian brand has been around since the 1950’s, and is internationally renowned for its hand-crafted luggage made with the finest Tuscan leather and state-of-the-art durable nylon. Every time I come across the store in Shangri-la mall, I ALWAYS go inside and admire the bags/totes/luggage. Its timeless and effortless designs appeal to me, and I can’t help but daydream of my next destination, using of course the covetable luggage.

I remember seeing Bric’s on my shopping trips abroad. I would always attempt to purchase a travel bag or luggage but would never push thru because of logistics (how am I supposed to take it home) and many other travel limitations (paying for overweight or extra luggage). So when I discovered that Bric’s opened its flagship store in Manila, I was more than happy. I could now very easily bring home the luggage without any hassles or extra payments.

I was at the grand opening of Bric’s at Shangri-la. I got to see the latest styles of matching bags and luggage, and meet designer Francesca Versace, who came up with her own collection. She came all the way here from Italy. Her designs were inspired by frames, and baroque details, which I thought were very interesting. The colors are very vibrant, but it still remains classy like the brand. Personally I LOVE the all leather luggage (especially the ones in brown)! They look stylishly handsome–it would be a dream to travel with a set like that!
