AMW Reports: WSI Opens in Manila

(Article updated on August 15, 2018)

Who loves watches?
I do!  I really do!  I can't survive a day without wearing one!  Once, in college, I forgot to wear my watch for the whole day, I felt so "naked" and uneasy I kept on looking at my wrist for time!  

As I grew older, my watch collection grew bigger, most of the watches I own are gifts from my husband (mostly from him!) and my brother!  They knew the best gift for me is the gift of Time --- I am one punctual girl and I'm crazy with my schedules! 

And who can imagine how "Watch Shopping" can get any better?  

Since the arrival of WSI (Watch Style Insider).  I recently attended the launch of the first WSI store located at SM Megamall.  WSI is a new retail "destination" where Watch Style is everything, WSI is the latest multi-brand retail concept from Fossil Group.  

Here is a watch-heaven where you can find latest watch styles by the world's most loved brands in ONE store.  You don't believe me?  You better do!  I have proofs!

Fossil is a global retailer specializing in the design, innovation, and marketing of fashion lifestyle and accessory products. The Fossil brand is rooted in authenticity and a distinctive vintage-inspired design aesthetic. Founded in 1984, Fossil prides itself on its commitment to American vintage inspiration.

Skagen is a contemporary lifestyle brand, rooted in simplicity, purpose, and accessibility. The seaside village of Skagen, Denmark, has attracted many with the simple way of life, which inspires all Skagen timepieces.

ArmaniExchange or A|X, the more youthful and energetic pillar of the Armani brand family was launched in 1991, aimed at a new generation of fast-fashion consumers - an accessible collection offering urban, individual style.

 Bold, rebellious and never shy, Diesel is a brand that doesn’t follow trends, it creates them. With a distinctive look and unique voice, Diesel is constantly moving style forward. Diesel watches reflect the confident, assertive nature of the brand. Large, loud and never afraid of color, they don’t follow the “RULES” of casual watch design, preferring to blaze new ground whenever possible.

 DKNY, founded by Donna Karan, is the energy and spirit of New York. DKNY addresses real-life needs of people everywhere. From work to weekend, jeans to evening, DKNY offers an all-encompassing collection so that you can be confident with any personality you exhibit. Both fashionable and friendly, DKNY consistently delivers its unique mix of style around the world.

 Emporio Armani, founded by Giorgio Armani, the father of Italian fashion, is a mid-level fashion brand primarily targeted at youthful, modern-minded and fashion-oriented men and women who appreciate new, exciting, sophisticated fashion. Classy and timeless are the best words to describe the Emporio Armani brand.  Emporio Armani’s timepieces are inspired by the heritage of vintage, timeless, sophisticated and contemporary design. Emporio Armani is moving towards a trend-focused and fashion driven collection with a twist of avant-garde design. 

 Marc By Marc Jacobs watch collection was launched in 2006 offering a more casual, affordable luxury interpretation of the Marc Jacobs line. The look of Marc By Marc Jacobs is youthful, understated, layered, vintage military inspired with a twist of something unexpected. The brand is designed for the young, urban, fashion forward individual with eclectic taste.

Michael Kors is a world-renowned, award-winning designer of luxury accessories and ready-to-wear. His namesake company, established in 1981, currently produces a range of products through his Michael Kors and MICHAEL MichaelKors labels.

Born from the mind of Karl Lagerfeld, the Fall 2014 collection perfectly embodies the sleek style with an edgy twist that has become synonymous with the KARL LAGERFELD brand.  This is the only store in the whole Philippines you can find Karl Lagerfeld watches.

You can also easily check out the WSI Favorite and Bestsellers.
