If the new year encourages you to try new things, and supporting local brands is a part of your resolutions list, then you’re in luck because Solenn Heussaff has made it easy to do both! Though the pandemic has halted the possibility of a physical store, Solenn continues to reintroduce her elegant curated shop, Solenn Manila. Started as a pop-up shop last February, it has since evolved to an online space to represent her favorites in food, fragrance, and home decor.
These products are all collaborations from local and independent brands that she absolutely loves and supports. As her brand entails, it’s a way of spicing them up by adding a little bit of the Solenn touch!
Check them out below!
1. All Things Bubbly
Founded by a married couple, Roy and Katrina Tiu, All Things Bubbly creates personal and home care products—from room and linen sprays, to lotions, to soap, to abacca eco bags, to fragrant candles—that are all made from eco-friendly ingredients.
Knowing Solenn, she made sure that their new aroma collection smells luxurious (yes, they’re all made with ingredients from Europe!) to make your home experience extra fresh and relaxing. This collaboration includes soy wax candles, reed diffusers, and room and linen sprays all with unique, earthy scents.
2. Bibingka Manila
The Heussaffs are known for being foodies so it’s no surprise that Solenn wanted to work with her favorite delicacy shop. Also founded by a married couple, Bojay and Timmie Samaco, Bibingka Manila stands apart from the rest because of their gourmet bibingka flavors such as Four Cheese, Ube Halaya, and Salted Egg.
In accordance with Solenn’s taste, they created another twist to the Filipino classic: the Glazed Ham and Queso de Bola Bibingka. This is the perfect premium merienda or holiday treat that’ll keep you wanting for more!
3. Nanay Luisa’s
Nanay Luisa’s is a family brand that is famous for their Queso de Bola spread. Together with Solenn, partners Laura Angelica Ramos and Julian Antonio Medel definitely know how to hit the right spot when it comes to satisfying your usual cheese cravings.
Their new special product, Truffle and Queso de Bola Spread, has all the complex flavors partying in your mouth! As good as it sounds, its use is also versatile—from appetizers served with crackers, toast, or chips, to being part of your lunch or dinner menus as a pasta topping.
