The Loewe Meccano and the Lebanese collective memory

The current Loewe collection includes so many references to Meccano with the new creative director Jonathan Anderson taking the helm (shoes, charms, and a silk scarf seen above). I post this not as a fashion item but more like a social observation. My quest to find that point where personal remembrances become collective memories and hence induce a sense of community and in extenso a national identity will never cease. Note that Meccano made it to my "Lebanon's History Book" project.
