CHECK IT OUT: Bleach Lifestyle Store at Greenbelt 5, Makati City
A cool new place for home accessories with an edge
(SPOT.ph) The word "bleach" is typically associated with white, so the store's predominant hues of black and grey are a bit of a surprise. But take in the shop's industrial, raw-cement-and-metal interiors and the stripped-down ring of a name like Bleach makes sense. The store, a reinvention of the former Bleach Catastrophe, reopened in January with a collection of cool home accessories, stationery, and clothing, 95% of which are made in the Philippines. Cristine Villamiel, who is still the brand's creative director, once described their shirts as "Mick Jagger-ish." We'd say these home accents also scream rock star.
