The new @tropa.store in Manila curates local Filipino handcrafted fashion brands like @araw.theline@eairthofficial@carljancruz@halohalostoreph and @vivienramsay. All labels offer one-of-a-kind or unique handmade pieces that are big on style and quality detailing, while simultaneously touting low environmental impact and toxin-free finishing. This elegant and minimally designed shop makes sure the curation of brands and goods are framed well - shining a light on modern fashion with a local perspective, and with use of choice fabrics and breezy tailoring that is humbly suited for the country's hot and hottest weather seasons. Tropa makes serving "Proudly-Filipino-Made" the next cool thing to watch in Fashion.
