Personal care products ranked second as those most-commonly purchased online, following food and groceries. In line with this trend, J&J Philippines also noticed an uptick in user traffic on its social media platforms, as well as a steady increase in orders and purchases on its active online shopping channels over the last few months.

Montblanc unveils new blue color scheme

MONTBLANC unveils its Metamorphosis and patented Exo Tourbillon in a new blue color scheme. Montblanc unveils the Montblanc Star Legacy Metamorphosis Limited Edition 8 in a sparkling blue color. This innovative timepiece literally transforms itself, revealing two faces with distinctive high complications that allow the wearer to appreciate the time in different ways. Due to the complexity of the timepiece, only a few watchmakers have the expertise and experience to create timepieces at this level. First introduced in 2010, the patented Exo Tourbillon complication is a key pillar of the Montblanc watch collection. The idea was to position the large balance wheel, beating at the traditional low frequency of 18’000 oscillations, outside of the tourbillon’s rotating cage (explaining the term “Exo”). This offered a spectacular view of the tourbillon in motion while improving the precision of the timepiece. Montblanc is available at Rustans Makati, Rustans Shangri-La, Rustan’s Cebu, Greenbelt 5, City of Dreams and Resorts World.

Bally presents new signature hardware for Spring/Summer 2021

BALLY presents the B-Chain, a new signature hardware with an edge that features across women’s bags and accessories in the Spring/Summer 2021 collection, Elemental Balance. The crafted detail features two mirrored “B” initials with a clean and angular design. Coming together in gold-tone metal, the B-Chain is incorporated into the closing system of the collection’s range of bags — a simple twist of the connecting chain opens and fastens the turn-lock closure. Bags featuring the B-Chain focus on the everyday needs of modern women, and combine sophistication with a heritage of craftsmanship to functional shapes. These include a cross-body saddle bag with a fully-organized interior, and a minibag version with the same detachable and adjustable shoulder strap with internal pockets, all in a perfectly petite form. For a more formal, business look, a top handle bag maintains a purposeful shape, with a fold-over opening and the B-Chain fastening for a sleek finish. It can be carried by the handle, or on the shoulder with a detachable shoulder strap. The B-Chain’s addition appears throughout the new collection in a seasonal color palette across applications, whether embossed on leather clutches, or as a patterned cotton jacquard, for a wide array of styles. The B-Chain collection is now available online and in Bally boutiques worldwide. In the Philippines, Bally is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., with stores at Greenbelt 5, Rustan’s Makati, Shangri-La Plaza, City of Dreams, Power Plant Mall, and Newport Mall. It can also be found online at Trunc.ph, and Rustans.com.
