How much are you willing to spend for your sweetie?
Millennials, in an informal survey by an online magazine, had various answers — the core message being that, whether you shell out a hundred pesos to a hundred thousand, your gesture means the same thing.
Those who are on the lookout for something special – to give or to indulge yourself (why not?) – may head on over to the metro’s leading name in luxury retail, Rustan’s. Below are some of the finest picks from the department store for the season of love.
Love never goes out of style
One of the things that ladies plan for on the special day is the outfit, so before everything else, throw on that Valentine vibe with sweetheart dresses and coordinates from Trina Turk and a new brand to the Rustan’s fashion roster, Finders Keepers.
Find chic embroidered and lacy pieces from JOA and Glamorous, or elegant midi party dresses from Josie Natori and another fresh drop at Rustan’s Makati, Keepsake.
If you have planned a romantic beach trip, pack swimsuits from Seafolly and Maaji, as well as island-ready pieces from Moon River and Lost + Wander.
Those looking for perfect tokens for their lady love would find great choices from Lipault, Longchamp and MZ Wallace.
What better color expresses love but red? Even better if they are red soles! Christian Louboutin has a collection of impressive shoes guaranteed to make her fall head over heels in love.
Style and function are forever
Gentlemen, stumped on what to wear for date night? Stop by Ricardo Preto, Pedro del Hierro, Hackett London, or Adolfo Dominguez, and find style staples that will never let you down. Cap off the overall look with either ties or pocket squares from the Tie Bar.
Ladies, keep your man looking fresh and impeccably groomed with nifty grooming keychains from Mad Style and mobile shavers from Braun and Philips.
For men who enjoy constant travel, discover gift options from Pacsafe and Gouache if you’re looking for bags, and Vaultskin, Secrid and Steve Madden for wallets and cardholders.
Say it with fine jewelry
Make her wear your love on her wrist with the Carrera y Carrera Love Bracelet.
Shun the traditional diamond ring for the fun and flashy Damiani Regina Cleopatra ring, while minimalists will appreciate the subtle elegance of the John Hardy French wire earrings.
The statement-making Marco Bicego drop earrings are made for the fashion plate in your life.
Stick to the classics with a pair of Roberto Coin diamond drop earrings or keep it dainty and sweet with a Tamara Comolli signature pair.
Show her how you love her radiant smile, similar to a radiant Mikimoto South Sea pearl to be exact!
