After having an amazing lunch of Shrimp Quesedillas and Pollo Asado Street tacos, we were standing around waiting for our car, and TD said… hey doesn’t that store look like a store we would find in Berlin? I turned around an lo and behold was XEPTION PH.
It gave off that cool hipster vibe of the stores near Rosenthaler Platz and had the multi functionality common in many places I’ve visited in Berlin – hipster designer fashion, lifestyle, cafe and event space. The space is surprisingly huge, especially in prime Makati real estate!
They serve delicious flat whites in a small cafe surrounded by all this delicious designer items. It was a perfect cap to our yummy lunch.
XEPTION FASHION SPACE
On the top floor you have hip designer labels with a cool circular dressing room.
XEPTION LIFESTYLE SPACE
The floor below is heaven for me because it had so many functional art pieces for the home. As you know from reading along my decluttering journey when you choose to have less, you can also afford to have better things at home. Fewer but better pieces can make every day life blissful, and make mundane tasks such a pleasure!
