Holidays begin with packing…and choosing the right bag and luggage to go with you on your trip. 

Typical options feature black, wheeled cases with sturdy handles. Sensible, sure, although not nearly stylish enough to get you in the mood for that much anticipated journey. But with Lipault officially making its debut in the country, travel enthusiasts now have the chic, colorful Parisian aesthetic as an option. 
 
As it arrives in the Philippines, it brings with it the chic, Parisian fashion aesthetic of its designer, Francois Lipovetsky, who launched it back in 2005. And through the years, the brand has become synonymous to understated French style, elegance, variety and functionality women love. 

“Lipault, the first brand with ready-to-wear bags and luggage you can buy like clothes, is recognized for being fashionably unique, innovative and most of all, well-made,” says Michael Corpuz, Marketing & Sales Manager for Lipault in the Philippines. “The brand’s extensive collection of bags is available in bright, eye-catching colors that make it easy to mix and match for any occasion and really puts the fun back whether for a weekend escape, a trip to the other side of the world or a simple shopping spree.” 

To highlight the brand’s chic sensibilities, 26-year old French model Fanny Fournier, best recognized for gracing the pages of global fashion magazines like Marie-Claire, Marie-France and Elle, has been chosen to represent the brand. 

Lipault’s selection of bags and luggage are created to be efficient and sturdy lending itself to easy storage. Collections are available in vibrant, on-trend hues that combine simplicity with the inherent sense of sophistication that Parisians are known for. And whether you need a functional piece of luggage for a short or long-haul flight, a simple carry-all for a road trip or an everyday tote that will go with every outfit, Lipault makes it easy for you to find what you need to fit your stylish needs.

To start your vacation in style, head over to the House of Samsonite store at The Podium Mall and Bonifacio High Street Central and soon in select Rustan’s, SM and Landmark Department Stores, where Lipault’s classic bag and luggage styles as well as the newest collections are available.
Circuit Makati offers a more convenient way of discovering the city’s newest entertainment district via its free shuttle service. Covered in graphic novel-like designs, the coasters will be hard to miss as it travels along its set route. 

The shuttle takes riders to Circuit Makati from several pick-up points within the Ayala Center and Makati CBD. The service runs Mondays to Fridays from 4 to 8 pm. and starts its journey from the main  station at the Hotel Intercon open car park (near the Ayala MRT station). Going to Circuit Makati, the shuttle also fetches passengers from the loading areas near Ayala Triangle Gardens, Smart Tower, and Zuellig Loop, Circuit Makati’s transport terminal, and Circuit Lane. Conversely, from Circuit Makati passengers are dropped-off near Glorietta and the BPI Head Office, before heading back to the main station. 
“This is one of the ways we are linking passengers to new developments in the city, and it is part of our objective to provide convenience to those who want to explore the different offerings of Circuit Makati,” said Manny Blas, Ayala Land Inc. Vice President and Project Development Head for Makati. Circuit Makati, one of the six nodes included in the 125-billion over-all plan for the city’s revitalization, showcases some of the most exciting entertainment venues, such as Globe Circuit Events Ground –home to various music festivals all year round—and several outdoor facilities such as the Gatorade Chelsea Blue Pitch, the Mountain Dew Skate Park and City Kart Racing. 

Recently,  the two-storey Circuit Lane opened featuring new initial offerings such as dining outlets Torch, Backyard, and Steveston Pizza, as well as a Power Mac Center and Nike store. Slated to open this October are Miracle Art, Palm Corned Beef Corner and Seafood Island. The retail strip is likewise home to Power Mac Center Spotlight, a 300-seater black box theater that is currently showing #NoFilter 2.0 by Sandbox Collective and will be showcasing Maria Isabella by Bit by Bit Productions in December.

The free shuttle ride aims to provide the public easier access to the trendiest shows and the hippest entertainment places that Circuit Makati has to offer. For more information, visit  www.makeitmakati.com/circuit-makati.
