The famous Spanish brand UNO de 50 is now in the Philippines! And last week, I was invited to the VIP launch of their first store in SM Aura. I believe this is also the first branch in the whole of Southeast Asia.
You must be wondering about the name UNO de 50 (pronounced oo-noh deh see-kwen-tah). Apparently, the brand started out with the original and exclusive philosophy of creating only 50 units of each design, thereby supplying the trademark name.
As a welcome gift to the launch, UNO de 50 gave me a red leather bracelet with its signature padlock charm. It's a nice addition to my arm candy family and I can see it stacked with my purple Pandora leather bracelet. They also gave me a red UNO de 50 suede notebook which is perfect for random thoughts while in transit.
I invited T's sister Michelle to come with me to the event and we run into T's friend, Ervic Vijandre.
I also saw Gelli Victor, another friend, who hosted UNO de 50's media launch earlier that week.
Are you the type who doesn't like owning something that everyone already has? If yes, then UNO de 50 is perfect for you since there are only a few items per design. So if you see anything you like.. Don't think, just buy. If someone gets the last piece, it may take a while to order from Spain or there may even be a chance that you could never get it at all.
Here are my favorites among the bracelets I saw:
Salud / Health (P3,219)
This is the first one that caught my eye.
Perillas / Sea Dog
I love the colors on this bracelet!
Amor / Love (P3,219)
I would've gotten this but I remembered that I have a Tiffany bracelet with similar charms.
Pulsera Solidaria Rett / Rett Awareness Bracelets
If you want something simple, you can get these Rett Awareness bracelets by the counter.
Y Centellas / Sparks
These pretty bracelets are part of the new collection called The Jewels of the Mediterranean. I tried them on but the size was too small for my wrist. Sayang, it would've been nice to stack this with my other silver bracelets.
But even after going through all of the designs, I always go back to the first one I saw, the Salud / Health bracelet. So I asked Romy, the SA assisting me, to keep this first while I browsed through the store some more.
Then he showed me the Corazon Clavado / Nailed Heart (P5,649) which I fell in love with. So I told SA Romy to set it aside for me also.
And good thing I did because there were only two Corazon Clavado / Nailed Heart bracelets left. Here I am with Rochelle Romero who got the last piece. Great minds think alike? ;)
I also like the bracelet called Brujula / Compass.
Aside from bracelets, UNO de 50 also carries necklaces. Here are some of the nice ones:
Michelle fell in love with the sparkling rings on the table. Major bling blings and all so pretty!
At the end of it all, this is what I came home with. Check out my UNO de 50 reveal (clockwise): Corazon Clavado / Nailed Heart, red leather bracelet with UNO de 50 padlock charm, Salud / Health, and an UNO de 50 suede notebook. So happy with my gifts and purchases!
UNO de 50 in SM Aura is already open to the public. They will also open branches in SM Megamall and SM Mall of Asia soon! For more information, check out UNO de 50's Facebook page.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
