Adora Celebrates 10 Years of #EverydayWonders   

By | Adora | No Comments

     Adora toasts 10 years—of curating lush bags and shoes, exquisite fragrances, contemporary fashion, and fostering a shopping experience like no other—with an haute party like they’ve never had before at the Adora PopUp Store, Shangri-La Plaza.

Enveloped in its elusive limestone walls and astonishing window display, Adora, beyond positioning itself as a purveyor of beautiful things, has become a mecca for those who seek #EverydayWonders.

A Gem, Not A Box

Since it opened its eponymous three-floor Greenbelt 5 store in 2008, Adora has dedicated itself to cultivating a retail culture where a well-edited mix of merchandise and a tasteful experience are at its forefront.  A decade may have passed, but Adora is not in the midst of slowing down.

One could not disregard that housing iconic labels, such as Chloé, H.Stern, Pedro Garcia, Pretty Ballerinas, Stella Luna, and Valentino—which to this day, are exclusively at Adora—has helped paved the way for the burgeoning sartorial market. Aside from this, brands that were solely in Adora’s roster, like Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Penhaligon’s, and Harlan + Holden have expanded their reach through different points of sale and standalone stores. It has also seen an expansion of its celebrated brand offering with loved labels like Diptyque, Loewe, Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, and more.

Aside from the richer line up, Adora recently launched the Adora Pop-Up Store in Shangri-La Plaza’s East Wing street-side entrance: a 300 square-meter space, clad in its signature pistachio green, that offers a well-thought out selection of luscious leatherwear from Chloé, Loewe, and Valentino; premium skincare and scents from Malin + Goetz, Maison Francis Kurkdjian, and Penhaligon’s; and pieces from prêt-àporter labels Harlan + Holden and LIFEwithBIRDAdoraX (2)AdoraX (1)AdoraX (36) AdoraX (4) AdoraX (6)  10 Years 10 Stories 10 Products 

As Adora rings in its 10th anniversary, it also celebrates the ten brands that have helped shape where it stands as a shopping destination: Stella Luna (2008), H.Stern (2009), Maison Francis Kurkdjian (2010), Chloe (2011), Valentino (2012), Harlan + Holden (2013), Pretty Ballerinas (2014), Penhaligon’s (2015), Pedro Garcia (2016), Loewe (2017).

Commemorating a decade of growth and a multitude of milestones, this November 28, 2017, Adora opens the doors to its 300 square-meter pop-up store in Shangri-La Plaza’s East Wing for a party of over 150 guests, overflowing cocktails, and a lush spread by Cibo di M. Known to celebrate through intimate gatherings and chic dinners, this party is going to be a first by Adora.

AdoraX (8)AdoraX (10)AdoraX (9) Attending this momentous fete are industry movers, friends from the media, loved Adora patrons, and ten incredibly stylish women that resonate the multifaceted and dynamic Adora clientele: television actresses such as Isabelle Daza, Iza Calzado, Janine Gutierrez, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Rhian Ramos, and Solenn Heussaff; as well as influential personalities Bianca Araneta-Elizalde, Kim Jones, and Steph KienleGonzalez. Each of these women are coming in attendance, taking the labels housed and curated by Adora, and making them their own.

Join Adora as it revels in quiet sophistication, meticulously sourced fashion, and crafting retail experiences.
