Anagram & Logo (Retail price from RM868)

The classic Loewe touch. The logo is  used in particular for the men models, also in combination with logomania inside temples or with the crown inserted on the metal plaque on the bridge.

Loewe2

The “4L” anagram is the most famous symbol of Loewe. There are 2 different applications of the logo on the products.

1. Metal Combined With Enamel

The Padlock.

Padlock meterail detail is used across most of the Loewe product categories.

In the sun collection the padlock is made with the “precision casting” technique that makes the metal details tridimensional (well-finished both inside and outside temples)

Last but not least; The Nappa. (Retail price from RM1242)

The strong point of  Loewe: nappa. The extremely soft and luxurios nappa manufactured by Loewe made the fashion firm famous all over the world.

Nappa And Metal Matching.
Precious detail: metal profile inserted in the acetate frontal perimeter

Beautiful and sensual designs aren’t they? Wish I could own one! I tried a few, but found them to be too big. 🙁

After the fashion show, lunch was served. This is my first time at the Estate, I didn’t have much expectations since this was considered “event food”.

Focus Point Loewe 2012 collection-004

Surprisingly, food turned out great. Our starter of a chunky foie gras ontop of a buttery toast (of which I suspect is a brioche) was wonderfully luscious, so I must say thanks to Focus Point for the generous lunch. 🙂

Focus Point Loewe 2012 collection-005

Main course was fish, beef, chicken or pasta. I would have chosen beef if I knew how it was prepared. However, at the registration table, they weren’t able to inform us of the preparation of each dish or the type of fish served so I stuck to the safer option and chose chicken.

The fish turned out to be grilled seabass, which wasn’t too bad.

Focus Point Loewe 2012 collection-007

Chicken became Chicken Tikka and no doubt I was disappointed with my choice after seeing the beef! Don’t get me wrong, the chicken tikka was alright. But it can’t beat……………

……….THIS!!
PINK, juicy tenderloin. 2 thick cuts of it too!

Well, looks like I have to be back for more!
Meanwhile, anyone here liked the new Loewe Spring/Summer sunnies? 🙂
