A shiny new womenswear boutique, it carries luxey indie fashion labels from Australia, New York, LA, London, Hungary and Peru (spot the odd one out – LatAm fashion is hot right now, honey). The brand was started by young political fashionista Pie Alvarez, a former Chanel intern and mayor of San Vicente in Palawan, who started LCP a few years ago to promote ‘curated essentials’. Having kicked off with trunk shows and pop-ups, she opened her first bricks-and-mortar store in December 2015 to satisfy her cult following.

Look out for painterly dresses and the super-cute beachwear, including bikinis, chic-silhouette swimsuits and Mara Hoffman Swim loungewear that will go down a treat at pool parties. There’s even stylish activewear.

LCP’s pretty white, pastel and gold interiors are inviting, with scented candles and comfy couches for lounging.
