“At the end of the day, I think it’s what we all want.”
Trent Javier – Co-founder – The Nines
On December 9, we welcomed the newest streetwear / contemporary store in Manila, Philippines: The Nines. Highlighting heritage brands and new-age cuts, the drinks were on the house and the in-store raffle, giveaways and music by DJ Ace Ramos and NixdamnP made it a night to long be remembered.
Energizing Manila’s burgeoning menswear scene, The Nines intersects streetwear with contemporary high-street fashion.
Conjuring up styling sensibilities from a bygone medieval era, the retailer derives its namesake from the phrase “dressed to a knight” – later transitioned into the American-led adaptation, “dressed to the nines.”
While its origins imply an aptitude to clothe oneself in the finest of formalwear, The Nines reinterprets this to denote dressing well in any such genre, be it streetwear, formalwear or anything in between.
With a core foundation rooted in fashion and photography, the shop converges both mediums to create its own distinct design language and its in-house photo studio styling area.
Customers are encouraged to snap their very own lookbook-mannered pictorials in a well-controlled, professional environment.
Moreover, The Nines staff remain at the ready, eager to discuss brand concepts while offering sartorial expertise on how customers can stylize items into their own artistic agendas.
The Nines is positioned to help pioneer The Philippine’s menswear movement and gear up to acclaimed labels while securing exclusivity with highly coveted imported brands as Thrasher, Stamped, I Love Ugly, Odd Future, Publish Brand and Blvck Scvle.
Other noteworthy names showcased at The Nines include Vitaly, Civil Regime, Rastaclat, Suavecito, Richer Poorer, Clear Weather and RESHOEVN8R.
As you can see, The Nines brings the most typical American style to the Taguig district of Manila, Philippines.
According to Trent Javier, the co-founder of The Nines, their goal remains simple: to help spearhead a movement based on stylistic excellence.
More importantly, The Nines aim to project and instill confidence to any and all who walk through our doors.
The event photos show you exactly how hot and popular The Nines is in Philippines.
Therefore, our friends living in, or traveling to, Manila should check us out to find your favorite brands in an amazing venue.
So how do you feel about The Nines now? Want to follow this super-cool shop and learn more about it? Well here’s your chance!:

Our friend in Malaysia, Major Drop, was established in June 2014 now carrying 80 brands under its roof. It is a multi- label street and lifestyle store becoming one of the most prominent street wear hubs in Malaysia. Major Drop hosted an event called, “The Lucky 1″ at the Slate at the Row celebrating their 1 year anniversary, and Lula was honored to be a part of it.
To promote Major Drop, in the building upstairs they showcased their staple brands on sale. Meanwhile, downstairs the party was pumping with people and dance moves that would blow your mind. Luckily, new and up coming DJ’s were able to play their best jams rocking out with the crowd. A few artists that showed us their beats included Moslem Priest, Tactmatic, Naufal & I-Sky, Arabyrd, DJ Biggie and flown in from Shanghai, frontman of creative collective Yeti In The Basement, one Tom Yeti. The Lucky 1 created a lot of hype and made us want to join in on the Major Drop party!
Upstairs section (pictured below) features the retail section with multiple brands that are sold at Major Drop. Nothing is better than shopping and partying at the same time.
Downstairs section (pictures below) proves that Malaysia knows how to party with Major Drop.
