APRIL 3 | Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong
Loewe’s Shangri-La store officially opened its doors last week, and it follows the design concept CASA LOEWE that was developed by the label’s creative director Jonathan Anderson.

With its first stand-alone store in the Philippines, Loewe made sure that its new space is as chic and modern as the leather goods, accessories, and eyewear collections that it hosts. While shopping, you can look at the art pieces displayed inside the store: John Allen pieces, fixtures that were featured in the brand’s fall/winter 2018 Paris show, and an Akari E Light Sculpture by Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi.

Loewe is located at Level 1 of Shangri-La Plaza East Wing, Mandaluyong City.
