Loewe Set to Welcome Shoppers Back to Pavilion KL After MCO Period

Loewe Set to Welcome Shoppers Back to Pavilion KL After MCO Period

The iconic Spanish luxury brand is eager to welcome customers to its long-awaited store in Malaysia once the MCO is lifted.

The unfortunate reality now is that everything and everywhere is in lockdown. But it’s unlikely that such draconian measures will last indefinitely.

So once the Covid-19 turmoil settles and infection rates come under control, how long will it take for retail to return to normal? This is one of the key questions that we bet will be on everyone’s mind. Unfortunately, no one will have the answer for this at the present!

Yet, a number of luxury brands are already looking ahead with a measure of positivity. So once the ‘all clear’ is sounded, perhaps it’s also time to update one’s style factor with plenty of high-end Spanish creativity, now that Loewe has opened its long-awaited store in Pavilion KL?

Spanning across 285 square metres, the 175-year-old brand’s newest store marks the latest chapter in its global expansion plans. At the same time, the concept of ‘Casa Loewe’ anchors the look behind the new store – an idea that is based upon how a home of an ardent collector of fine things will look like, thus creating a haven for both fashionistas and art buffs alike.

Inside, everything from cast concrete walls, emerald green agate stone and Spanish tiles to wood panelling, poured campaspero floors and curtains made of linen go hand-in-hand to create a sympathetic context for the diverse art collection that ranges from historical to contemporary and across visual art, craft and design.

The Pavilion store now will also features works by three artists – South African artist Hylton Nel; Japanese contemporary artist Shihoko Fukumoto and Brazilian artist Solange Pessoa, showing a link between different cultures represented by the art in the store.

And beyond the curated selection of ready-to-wear collections, leather goods and accessories for men and women, the store also features some unusual but equally exciting items. These include the Utrecht armchairs designed by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld in 1935, and industrial iron chairs from the original setup of the Loewe Fall/Winter 2018 fashion show in Paris, cider presses obtained from Spain, Portugal and south of France, a François Melin golden and patinated brass beetle and glass table and bespoke rugs specially designed and produced for the brand.

After all, what’s life without all its fine details… right?

Loewe’s Pavilion Kuala Lumpur store is located at Lot 2.35.00 & 2.35.01, Level 2.
