Aigle | French Raiment

A French pop-up just appeared in Uptown Mall in Bonifacio Global City, offering rich heritage as well as the unmistakable sensibility Parisians have of looking effortlessly put together and stylish. Aigle, established in 1853 started out as a rubber boot company and has been making sports shoes since the 1950s. The company has since expanded into technically superior yet tastefully designed jackets, clothing, bags and accessories.

Don’t take my word for it, see photographs below of the clothing they have at their pop-up. I expect the brand to carry much more when the flagship store opens this October!

The boots are very attractive. Handmade styles which double as protection and a fashion statement.

Numerous jackets on the racks in tasteful colors, and subtle branding make for a classy raiment.

I couldn’t seem to take off this red one, maybe it was because of the clothes I was wearing matched perfectly or that the jacket was near perfect too!

The practical side of me though really appreciate this navy offering, which would go really well with jeans or trousers.

But still…

Found some field jackets!

A live acoustic set also set the mood and feel of the night.

But alas I was still inspecting the goods. Honestly, I consider myself a somewhat difficult customer in terms of how many questions about the item and brand I ask. Luckily the people on the floor were very helpful and knowledgeable about Aigle, plus points!

Some blacks have a different tinge, I kid you not!

Best to try on and find out if it goes with my skin tone, or if the pattern of jacket is flattering.

Nice french tailoring shining through I believe!

Visit the Aigle pop-up store at Uptown Mall BGC! They also have a VIP program which I heard is very rewarding.
