For Gigi Leung Wing-kei, few destinations can beat Spain for a romantic getaway. The singer married Spaniard Sergio Crespo Gutes last year and returned to the country where they met late last month.

During the working holiday, Leung took part in a photo shoot for Madrid-based fashion brand Loewe. She also took the opportunity to film a music video in Barcelona for her new Mando-pop album, Butterfly Kisses, which will be released tomorrow. Leung's husband accompanied her on the trip and also appears in the video.

The singer was in high spirits in the Landmark mall in Central on Tuesday at the launch of Loewe's new Granada bags, a collection inspired by the Spanish city's 14th-century palace, the Alhambra. Photos taken during the shoot were unveiled at the event, shown alongside the leather goods, and will be on display until Sunday.

The fountain in the mall was transformed into a miniature Moorish palace featuring exotic latticework and pillars - an aesthetic which inspired Loewe creative director Stuart Vevers in the design of the collection.

Guests sipped Veuve Clicquot champagne and savoured Spanish tapas while admiring the calf-leather bags.
