01/22/17 ARCHIVES evolves and expands in Legaspi Village
For a while on Legaspi Village’s Gamboa Street, Homme et Femme’s ARCHIVES has stood as Makati’s most mythical closet to rummage. From past-season collections was a vast selection that spanned Balenciaga heels to Thom Browne belts, all at reduced prices.
With many a man conquering their style identity by venturing to the great retail unknown, and ladies simply demanding more choice (and a larger wardrobe), ARCHIVES has evolved into two stores. ARCHIVES on Gamboa is now devoted to women’s wear with an expanded selection of premium price-slashed picks from Céline to Sacai. Men, on the other hand, get their own ARCHIVES through an Aguirre Street location: its own bi-level, bare-bones outpost. Amid the poured concrete space are pieces that run the gamut from street (Y-3) to sybaritic (Balenciaga).
With more breathing room for men’s and women’s collections to stand out, there’s more opportunity to relish rather than rummage through the back-a-season bounty.
