A day after I arrived from Japan and my crazy shopping spree, I got news that Pylones had finally opened its first branch in Rockwell. AUGH! I knew then and there that I couldn’t miss shopping in that store because I’ve been anticipating its opening for so long. MUST.GET.THAT.QUIRKY.UMBRELLA!
Pylones, in a nutshell, is a novelties store of French origin. They have a team of talented designers who come up with the wildest, cutest, and most unique interpretations of everyday items such as pens, kitchenware, beauty tools, notebooks, and even home fixtures. Every Pylones item is sure to add a bit of spunk and color to your day.
The place was jampacked, but I didn’t have a hard time going around because I knew exactly what to get. I’ll take you guys around the store for a bit and show you some of the things that tickled my fancy.
Wall decor, magnet pens, and bottle openers.
Naughty bottle stoppers. :D
Handpainted thermos bottles in plastic and metal.
Ah! My addiction! Babushkas! :D
Pens, notebooks and notepads.
Pencil pouches and a huge eraser. Can I use the eraser on my life? LOL! :D
Make pooping fun with these toilet paper holders + colored toilet papers. I'm not sold to the idea of dyed toilet paper though. :p
The hammers of girls! This super cute tool comes with three screwdrivers.
Puppy atomizers. It's so cute that I wanted to buy one even if I completely have no use for it. :p
Handpainted hair brushes in large and bag- friendly sizes. Mom's most favorite Pylones item. :)
While these are my most favorite Pylones items! When I was still running the blog My Erratic Fashion Taste, (which was supposedly my Fashion Blog) I blogged about these umbrellas. (That was around 2 years ago) I really, really, really fell in love with them and I think you'll understand why. I was so hell bent on getting one for myself that I almost ordered it directly from Pylones' website for P4,000.00+ inclusive of ground shipping, tax, and international shipping, but told myself to wait. Phew! Good thing I didn't push thru with my order or else, I would feel bad now because it costs P1,278.00 only! This line is called the Rain Parade by the way. :)
So here's my Pylones stuff. I got three Rain Parade umbrellas, a travel- sized hair brush, calling card holder, pill box, pouch, plastic thermos, a cat- shaped manicure brush, and a gartered notebook. Price point is P200.00 to P4,000.00. Fairly cheap and price difference with Pylones France ain't that huge. :)
Pylones will soon open in SM Aura and Glorietta 5.
So what Pylones item/s are you lusting over? Have you visited the store? Share your hauls! :)
