Heritage brand Levi’s® today expands its Asia footprint with one of its largest stores in the Philippines, located at SM North EDSA, marking another milestone in Levi’s® direct-to-consumer expansion strategy in Asia. Slated to be a one-stop shopping destination for denim enthusiasts, the new store features Levi’s® NextGen store concept and boasts LED-powered digital features such as an illuminated entry archway and in-store panels streaming interactive content. With the NextGen store concept, Levi’s® SM North EDSA is set to deliver the fullest expression of the brand through a unique and immersive experience where shoppers can discover, purchase, and customize Levi’s® products to their own authentic self-expression and personal style.
The store will carry the most comprehensive selection of Levi’s® products within the Philippines – from its iconic 501® line, to its classic Trucker jackets. In addition to new spaces that enhance the shopping experience such as a style lounge, elevated fitting rooms, and personalized shopping guidance from in-store Levi’s® experts, the new store also houses the Levi’s® Tailor Shop, an alteration, restoration, and customization station helmed by skilled tailoring professionals. The Tailor Shop allows shoppers to personalize their purchases. With self-expression being key for today’s consumers, customers can customize their Levi’s® apparel to suit their taste and expression, whether through embroidery, patches, pins, fabric paneling, or more. The Tailor Shop unlocks many personalization options for shoppers, whether they are looking to elevate a newly-purchased piece or refresh an existing one in their closet.
