Since the new branch of Forever 21 opened in SM Makati last April 7, it has been drawing in the crowds. In fact, it was so packed during the weekends that my dongsaeng and I skipped shopping there last Saturday despite our obvious interest in this Korean-American fashion brand. Although Forever 21 is more American than Korean, there are still hints of Korean aesthetics in its styling.
What’s good about Forever 21 is that it’s like a whole department store on its own. Aside from the chic Forever 21 brand, the same store also houses the sophisticated Love 21, the vintage looks from Heritage 1821, the casual to urban fittings from 21 Men, and faux couture from Twelve-by-Twelve.
Still, I’ll wait until the crazy interest of fashion sharks dies down before I step into the store — which is said to have a bigger selection of 21Men than the branch in SM Megamall. ^^
