Once September rolls around, it feels like Christmas but not quite in the Philippines. Keeping with that spirit, Acer is launching its pre-holiday campaign with a promotion with SM’s premium shoes and bags brand Salvatore Mann and a new short film starring Kita Kita stars Alessandra De Rossi and Empoy called #KasyaPa.

Acer previewed the first part of the film at the event and describes it as showing the “struggles a lot of people experience in work, in life, and especially in love.”

Aside from showing the new short film, Acer held a fashion show at SM Megamall Fashion Hall to commemorate its partnership and show the exclusively-designed bags that are up for grabs when you avail Acer’s promo.

“We build partnerships with brands and personalities that not only resonate Acer’s aesthetics and appeal but help enrich and strengthen them as well,” says Sue Ong-Lim, sales and marketing director for Acer Philippines. “Empoy and Alessandra, in their most recent film Kita Kita and as seen in #KasyaPa, exhibit relatability and resilience–traits that personify Acer. Meanwhile, Acer laptops and gadgets are sleek and fashionable, yet highly functional–characteristics that define Salvatore Mann bags, too.”

For the pre-holiday promo, any purchase of an Acer projector, an Acer Aspire i3-powered laptop or desktop will entitle you to either a Salvatore Mann duffel bag or backpack. Those who purchase an i5- or i7-powered or an all-in-one Acer Aspire laptop or desktop get both bags. SM Advantage, SM Prestige, and BDO Rewards Cards Holders get exclusive Salvatore Mann sling bags. The promo will run until October 15th.
