Thai-German actor Mario Maurer is back in the Philippines, this time with his co-star Baifern Pimchanok in the 2010 hit A Crazy Little Thing Called Love (First Love). With their very strong Filipino fan base, as well as an equally strong sense of style, both stars have joined Penshoppe's exclusive roster of international endorsers. The endorsers flew to Manila over the weekend for the brand's fan conference at SM City North Edsa and the SM Mall of Asia Atrium.
Mario's striking good looks and style clicked with Penshoppe, and he was officially launched as the brand's endorser in 2011. Baifern on the other hand is a model and actress who became the local retail's powerhouse muse in 2012 for her stunning beauty and sense of style.
Penshoppe brand director Jeff Bascon says, "We love their energy—they have a fresh and youthful vibe that represents what the brand is all about." He adds, "Mario loves the Philippines, he's been here before; and Baifern is looking forward to meeting her Pinoy fans for the first time. Everyone's just excited and we're happy that we're able to give Penshoppe fans the opportunity to see and meet them."
