     Leading Southeast Asian womenswear brand, Love, Bonito, officially announced the opening of its first brick and mortar store in the Philippines. Launching in the third quarter of the year at Greenbelt 3, Makati City, the inaugural store will feature the brand’s newly unveiled identity and revamped assortment strategy following its recent rebranding. “After five years of shipping to the Philippines, we’re thrilled to announce the opening of our very first permanent store here," shares Rachel Lim, Co-founder of Love, Bonito. "Throughout these years, we've cherished every connection made through events and collaborations, feeling deeply inspired by the warmth and support of the community. With our upcoming physical store, our Filipina customers can now experience our collections firsthand, join workshops, styling sessions, and be part of our vibrant community events." 

     “The Philippines remains one of our fastest growing markets, with a constant double digit year-on-year growth since 2019,” says Dione Song, Chief Executive Officer of Love, Bonito. “Unlike traditional retailers, Love, Bonito started out as a digitally-native brand, but over the years have grown to understand the importance of being physically present where our community is. The pop-ups and showrooms we’ve done locally gave us much insight into our local customer base as well as the mall culture. With this, we’re thrilled to open our first store in a few months!”
