Celebrities often inspire us with our fashion and beauty choices. For example, when Son Ye Jin's character in Crash Landing On You was spotted wearing a pair of oversized black square sunnies, it quickly became a hot item. The eyewear in question was HER 01 by the South Korean brand, Gentle Monster.

Gentle Monster is known for its unique and futuristic designs, and its boutiques are as interesting as its products. If you've been to Seoul or other cities like Tokyo, Singapore, or Taiwan, you've probably passed by one of its stores. Now, there's a chance that we may soon have one of our own in the Philippines.

Filipino social media personality and fashion icon Rei Germar—who has collaborated with brands like Louis Vuitton, Celine, and Dior—on Aug. 8 hinted that the celebrity-favorite eyewear brand from South Korea is coming to the country, posting pictures of herself wearing clear sunglasses inside a decorated elevator.

"@gentlemonster is coming to Manila!!!!" she captioned her post, with the hashtag #gentlemonsterxdheygere.
