buh-bye, YSL?

for those of you who don't know, YSL in greenbelt 4 has been on sale for about a month now. as in everything in the store is discounted, up to 85% off. we were able to buy a pair of black patent platform loafers, from the original price of P46,250 (almost a thousand dollars) down to P6,937.50 (less than $150)—that's practically free! we know women who bought muse bags at 50% off. still pretty expensive but you can't get 'em that cheap, not even on ebay. now why is YSL getting rid of its existing merchandise without anything new coming in? well, take a good look at the store now because we heard a rumor that it's closing its doors here forever. buh-bye, YSL. store specialists inc. (SSI—the local franchise holder) doesn't waste any time trying to wait and see if a brand will pick up. did you notice they got rid of coach? and did you notice, prada no longer carries ready-to-wear? and whatever happened to marlboro jeans, is it still around? so what will replace YSL? we heard another rumor that another designer name will take its place, one that begins with a letter M... could it be miu miu? or marc by marc jacobs? or michael kors? abangan!

Wow!

Anyone knows if their wallets are on sale, and how much are they now?

Thanks!

yes, the wallets were also on sale, but very few pieces left. the last time i visited the shop, very few pairs of shoes were left too...

they are still so OPEN!!! we just called LINSAY of SSI who is the merchandiser for YSL. and she denied it!! i guess we have to check our facts first before causing any palpitations across manille's fashion world!

rumors, my dear p&t, they are all rumors. we decided to edit our post and add a question mark to the title.

why dont they just replace these overpriced shops with local designer brands instead?

Now I know why the Manila store is no longer listed in their website.
