Nothing is more exciting than summer in the Philippines. The warmth of the sun, the salty air and the irresistible call of the beach all means it’s time to relish a much-needed escapade in any of the 7,641 islands of this blessed archipelago.
And right as summer settles in, prime shopping destination Rustan’s celebrates the sunny season with its much-awaited annual Travel Fair.
In partnership with HSBC, Rustan’s is out to equip shoppers not only with the essentials needed for getaways, but with the opportunity to travel and experience the world.
To start with, shoppers will get an exclusive travel pouch from homegrown brand Gouache for a minimum P15,000 single-receipt transaction. Specializing in waxed-canvas bags that grow finer with age, Gouache supports displaced craftsmen from Marikina and Cogeo, Rizal.
And until May 31, shoppers can earn raffle entries for every P3,000-spend and stand a chance to win some of the best summer getaway packages on the market with select items from fashion and beauty brands on discounts.
For getaway cruises, adults and children can make poolside memories best with bathing suits from Banz, hooded toddler towels from Zoochini, Stephen Joseph pool toys and Zoggs goggles. Get help for formal nights and dressed-up dinners on board from Aidan Mattox, Bari Jay, Josie Natori, and Keepsake, and foolproof lace-up brogues from Tricker’s.
Hikes, treks and unexpected encounters make the outdoor adventure memorable with casual wear from Adidas and athletic jackets from New Balance. Kids get the comfort with Mamas & Papas strollers.
For those who prefer staycations in the city, the perfect complement to shoes and bags are from Aquazzura, Danse Lente, or Sergio Rossi with festive fine jewelry from Swarovski. Kids look perfect in darling dresses and polished button-downs from Rustan’s Jr. and Neck and Neck, with cool bags from Okiedog.
An exciting addition to the Rustan’s summer festivities is Foodscapes, a gastronomic experience designed to give customers a first-hand taste of the world’s finest flavors.
Highlighting five countries via booths and hand-picked concessionaires, Rustan’s Summer Foodscapes is a foodie’s dream come to life until April 30.
Enjoy rich burrata and mozzarella from the countrysides of Italy, delectable tapas from Spain, French crepes and rosé, or the complex flavors of Moroccan and Turkish cuisine.
