Over 130 years of passion for chocolate and a voyage of over 12,000 miles to select three of the best cacaos in the world… that is the secret hiding behind the boundless pleasure experienced upon tasting a piece of Valor Chocolates. Pure chocolate, chocolate with Mediterranean Marcona almonds, hot chocolate, chocolate mousse, handmade and signature bonbons… Valor Chocolates’ palette of flavors is immense. This international brand, present in over 50 countries, makes all its bars in its facilities in Villajoyosa, Spain.

The result: the leading Spanish brand in the chocolate industry, producing over 13 million tons of sweets each year. That’s tons of pleasure!

Valor Chocolates’ history is defined by a passion for a single product: the best chocolate. Behind this passion, we find a family of master chocolatiers who set up factory in 1881 led by Valeriano López Lloret, founder of the brand. He gave a name and personality to what has become the leading Spanish company in the chocolate industry and whose prestige has extended far beyond its borders.

With over 235,000 square feet of state-of-the-art facilities, this factory produces 13 million tons of sweets each year. Bars and chocolate bonbons are exported to more than 50 countries, thanks to Valor Chocolates’ internationalization policy.

The Innovation Behind the Pleasure…

The pleasure that lies in each bite of Valor Chocolates is achieved, in part, by its commitment to innovation, one of the company’s fundamental pillars. Innovation that unites with tradition to amaze the most discerning palates. This year the brand has presented its new range of sugar-free bars, which are now sweetened with stevia, a natural sweetener derived from a plant originating in South America that is 15 times sweeter than sugar.

The sugar-free bars come in a broad range that is ideal for chocolate lovers who are watching their figures or need to control their sugar intake. They retain all the flavor and pleasure of the brand’s chocolate—without the sugar. They also come in an unbelievable array of sugar-free offerings: Dark; 70% Dark; Dark with Whole Marcona Almonds; Dark with Whole Hazelnuts; Dark with Chocolate Mousse Truffle; Milk Chocolate; Milk Chocolate with Whole Marcona Almonds; Milk Chocolate with Whole Hazelnuts; Milk Chocolate with Hazelnut Truffle Filling. They’re all amazing!

Another significant innovation is the brand’s exclusive Philippine launch of Valor Hazelnut Spread that comes in regular and sugar free variants. It is made with 13% hazelnuts and its sugar free variant is a delectable treat to diabetics or on a diet.

Lacoste LIVE! SS2013 Launch

Since 1933, LACOSTE has been the most beloved crocodile, outfitting generations of tennis athletes, prep boys and country-club girls. The brand has been singularly responsible for skyrocketing the preppy trend during the 80’s, filling the world with pastel pique shirts, sweaters, and chinos, and ever since then, LACOSTE has been a household name. But now that the brand is 80 years old, LACOSTE decides to live on the edge, with the younger, hipper, and so much cooler, LACOSTE L!VE.

And because we have it now in New Glorietta! Its time for a celebration!

Its Spring Summer 2013 collection mixes the florals of the wild, untamed beaches, and off-the-radar destinations for a look that is well into the underground yet brimming with the energy of the now.

Its Spring Summer 2013 Women’s Collection is divided into three categories: Acid Coral, Wild Flowers, and La Piscine. With acid washed denims paired with the hues of the psychedelic sunset, Acid Coral presents summer essentials like white bikinis, low-cut cotton tees, hot pants and tube dresses, in color-ways that are a trip in its own.

The Men’s Spring Summer 2013 LACOSTE L!VE Collection remixes the old-school with the futuristic for a rocking collection built on wanderlust and hedonism—for really bad boys with really good style! LACOSTE L!VE’s Sabali Collection takes the men to Africa where ochres, rusts, oranges, and reds collide with geometric tribal prints for a collection grounded by an excellently-tailored khaki bomber.
