The Overview

The shimmering rose-blush interior of this award-winning flagship store by Carlo Calma lends itself to changing art installations. But the main attraction is Amina Aranaz's ever-evolving collections of sleekly feminine purses. Underneath the show-stopping glamour is extraordinary craftsmanship.

ARANAZ is known for her use of local materials—think coco shells accentuated with bamboo and sequins, crocodile leather layered with pineapple-abaca weave, ostrich leather embedded with cracked mother-of-pearl, and hand-embossed snakeskin embellished with Swarovski crystals. A vanguard on the Manila design scene, Aranaz is the founder of SoFA. Bags can be made to order.
