Inquirer Lifestyle and LOOKbook’s 2017 Face-Off OOTD Cebu Edition had quite a fitting finale at SM Seaside City Cebu Wednesday: show hosts and Swatch brand ambassadors Matteo Guidicelli and Luis Manzano carried a larger-than-lifesize image of the world-famous Cebu lechon. And the audience gave it a rousing applause.

The Cebu lechon is an image on the loop that Matteo chose to go with his new Swatch x You, the latest collection of the famous Swiss brand. There are many loops the wearer can choose from to go with Swatch.
The image of the Cebu lechon is a special-edition loop used in Face-Off.

The watch choices come in two sizes—34 mm and 41 mm—with various strap and loop designs. The lechon— a Cebu icon—loop is exclusive to the Philippines

While Guidicelli, a Cebu home boy, and Manzano walked the runway, waiters served precut plates of Cebu lechon to delighted guests.

The event was presented with SM Seaside City Cebu, Vivo Phils., Philippine Airlines, and Cebu Daily News and Salon de Rose.
