There’s one more reason to pass by the new wing of Power Plant Mall. Original Penguin recently opened its new concept store at the second floor of the Rockwell Makati mall, which is filled with surprises.
For one, the brand is introducing two categories to its clothing line: home and luggage. The former features comforters and beddings inspired by the American brand’s iconic golf shirt. On the other hand, the latter has the stylish hard-case Montana Luggage, which is probably the first thing you’ll notice upon entering the shop. The competitively-priced piece, which comes in three sizes and colors, is exclusive to the Power Plant shop.
The biggest surprise of all is tucked away at the back of the space. House of Handsome, Original Penguin’s in-house barbershop that is operated by Felipe and Sons, offers full-on cuts and grooming services just past the dressing rooms. There’s even a little toy car chair in case you want to sneak in a trim for your little ones while you take your time trying out outfits.
Speaking of which, the store also has its Spring collection, Mixtape, on hand mixed in with their classic pieces. The current line has a 90s chill beach vibe, filled with stripes and color blocking. Its perfect for summer afternoons that are as relaxing as lazy Sunday mornings, which is probably a great time to check out the one-stop shop.
THE NEW ORIGINAL PENGUIN CONCEPT STORE IS AT R2, POWER PLANT MALL, LOPEZ DRIVE, ROCKWELL, POBLACION, MAKATI. FOLLOW THE BRAND ON FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM. HOUSE OF HANDSOME IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN ORIGINAL PENGUIN’S MALL OF ASIA BRANCH.
