last sepetember 30, 2011, we witnessed the best in class to open in katipunan.
i covered the opening of Sole Academy, along Fabian dela Rosa Street, along Katipunan. it’s just right beside Blue Skies, across KFC and near Fully Booked.
the opening started with the Blue Babble Battalion hyping up the crowd with its infectious beats and some beautiful models, including our very own Fiamma Fresh Bartender, Janelle Olafson were there to cheer on the opening of the store. it started with the cutting of the ribbon, and the tradition of throwing coins in the store and people were allowed to go in. lots of people reacted about how classy and clean the place looked. the very natural earthy colours and the brick interiors translated: CLASS.
a lot of celebrities, players, coaches and sneakerheads came over to celebrate the opening of the store. we feasted on sushi, kebabs, bon chon, skewers and beer care of the owners.
by the end of the night, they hooked me up with a “KA” fitted cap by Christian Cabuay (www.sickmanofasia.com) made by WIP Caps.
anyway, here’s some of the photos:
thanks to Carlo Trillo for hooking us up with the classiest shoe store in the area!
