Japan’s IT bag is finally available in Manila. Hello Anello!
I remember when I first started seeing this bag on my Instagram feed. I got curious to that point that I’ve asked a few friends abroad to get one for me but for some reason I never got through getting one. I guess having too many choices always leave overwhelmed. Hahahay!
Anello, the world-renowned Japanese-Italian brand known for their signature wired wide opening backpack is finally in the Philippines. And the brand is changing the way Filipinos look at bags forever. Founded on the premise of improving people’s quality of life with pieces that you can use regardless of the season, anello, offers a full line of fashionably chic pieces that perfectly complement the lives of today’s multi-faceted individuals.
Anello, which translates to “annual growth rings” in Italian, was founded in 2005 by Carrot Company, a world leader in the retail industry who also owns Legato Largo, a woman’s fashion brand, and Paquet du Cadeau, a brand that sells fun accessories. The company started its operation back in 1998 in Osaka, Japan.
No-nonsense pieces that allow one to wear it and adapt its look to his or her personal style. This is what Anello is all about.

Thanks for having us, Anello Philippines! 🙂
Early in June this year, anello further expanded its global footprint by opening its first store in the country, located at the third floor of SM Megamall Fashion Hall. Less than three weeks after the said event, the brand went on and unveiled its impressive 100-sqm flagship store at Estancia Mall in Capitol Commons. Soon after, the third branch opened in UP Town Center. Proving one and all that it has a strong fan base, even here in the Philippines, the first three branches has had an overwhelming turnout of visitors, with some traveling all the way from distant provinces just to get their hands on the brand’s fresh drops.

Aside from their well-known and well-loved signature backpack, Anello also has other styles such as this compact sling/body bag that’s both for men and women.
I was particularly drawn to their PVC leather bags. The design has a certain classic yet modern look to it yet it has that signature Anello zipper. It took a while for me to finally pick an Anello bag because indecisive me wants everything! Hahahaha. But I did get a bag in this photo and I’ll post it on Instagram soon. 😉 Welcome to Manila Anello!
Anello Philippines stores are at SM Mega Fashion Hall, UP Town Centre, Estancia Mall at Capital Commons, and Uptown BGC Mall. Please buy only from these store to guarantee you of its authenticity.
