Queen Letizia debuts Bimba Y Lola trouser suit to inaugurate the Iberdrola Innovation and Training Campus
The King and Queen of Spain inaugurated the Iberdrola Innovation and Training Campus under the theme RETO (Challenge) 'Recovery, Energy, Transition and SDG' and delivered the Supplier of the Year Awards, at San Agustín del Guadalix, Madrid.
The Iberdrola group is a global energy leader, the first wind power producer and one of the largest electricity companies by market capitalisation in the world. The Iberdrola Innovation and Training Campus has state-of-the-art facilities which represent Iberdrola's commitment to technology, R&D and collaboration with technology centres to lead the energy transition, green recovery and the employability of young people and senior professionals in sectors of the future. Approximately 13,000 people receive training development in its classrooms annually.
After the initial greetings, Their Majesties moved to the auditorium where the 'CHALLENGE COVID Special Mention Awards' and 'Iberdrola RETO Awards' were presented. Afterwards, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia toured the Campus, signed the book of honour and were photographed by the commemorative plaque marking their visit.
Queen Letizia stepped out in a new olive green pant suit for the visit to the Iberdrola campus.
The separates are from Spanish fashion brand, Bimba Y Lola. The set consists of a double-breasted blazer with peaked lapels, and high-rise straight-cut trousers.
The Spanish Queen softened the masculine suit with a black camisole featuring a scallop lace trim.
She carried the Nina Ricci 'Marche' handbag with a snakeskin-embossed flap front.
On her feet were the black Prada Saffiano patent pointy-toe pumps.
Letizia finished the look with her Gold & Roses Double Dagger Earrings.

I'm not sure of the colour of this suit. It looks like a grey-green which is a favorite of mine. However, I find the blazer too big, boxy, long and shapeless. The pants are too short and voluminous. Together they overwhelm Letizia's slim frame. But the purse, shoes and camisole are lovely indeed.

Sorry but the brand "Bimba and Lola", actually Uxía and María Dominguez, Adolfo Dominguez's (the Spanish designer) nieces are from Galicia, not from Barcelona.

The Bimba Y Lola suit is a great find from the high street, the Queen looks youthful and stylish. Admittedly, the suit is stronger in some photographs more than others. When Letizia's hand is inside her trouser pocket the ensemble opens up, showcasing her svelte figure and balancing the larger proportions. I prefer this suit to the double-breasted pink and glen-check Hugo Boss suits we have seen. The reason being, the fabric is sturdy which allows the suit to maintain its structured silhouette, creating a clean and crisp look. The cropped trousers help harmonise the oversized jacket and the bright blue buttons add interest to the dark petrol colour. I adore the front sewn-in seams on the high waisted trousers, they sharpen the straight cut and lengthen the ensemble. The accessories are gorgeous, their glossy sheen and gold hard-wear enhance the otherwise minimalist outfit. My only quibble, the camisole. So often with Letizia's camisoles, the lace trim either sits too high on her chest or the lace is lacking in quality. To avoid these problems, I would prefer a buttery silk camisole without lace. In the future, the suit could be paired with a printed silk shirt, something playful like polka-dots (navy or black base - white dots) may soften the masculine lines.

Actually , Bimba y Lola are "semi luxury" items, it is not a cheap brand, their bags can cost 400 Euros and the "logo" is very famous in Spain.

Hi Simone, sorry I should have said high-end high street, their dresses are around £200. Over here, brands with a similar price point, such as Reiss and LK Bennett, are considered high-end high street. Not everyone can afford them.

Sorry to say that I don't like anything about this look. The jacket is too long and boxy, the pants are too full and too short. I find the colour somewhat drab and the colour of the buttons doesn't help. The lace on the camisole is all wrong with the severity of the jacket. The purse is very chunky and a slimmer look would have been better for a shoulder bag. The earring and the shoes are the only things I like. For me this is a real miss as outfits go.

This pantsuit has all the hallmarks for looking lovely, but somehow it falls short. The jacket is very inelegant and unshapely. I realise it is a masculine theme pantsuit. The size of the jacket seems to overwhelm the Queen. The pants seem a bit on the baggy side.

Bimba y Lola are not "high street" items, they are considered a mark, this suit can cost at least 500 Euros and it is made in Spain, not in China or something.

I have to come clean, I really don't like this suit, it's no credit to Bimba y Lola. It looks badly cut and the fabric -- too stiff and lumpy -- has no drape. The outsize jacket with cut-off pants is just out of sync and the look is finally demolished rather than complemented by the reappearance of that cheap lace camisole.

Bertie, glad you agreed with my comment that this suit has no redeeming qualities and the camisole doesn't help the cause. You said it more eloquently than I did, but it is clear that neither of us like this suit.

Berti, Can you tell me a Monarchy where people dress very well, despite spending lots of money that belongs to the people and having lots of people out and about doing nothing.I do not know anyone.

It is better a Queen that visits a school in a big horrendous hat and sorrounded by jewerly?

And there was me thinking if I snuck this one little comment in late that no one would notice! Thank you very much everyone for taking the trouble to read my post and for commenting, especially those of you for whom English is not your first language. I am so glad we can have lively but civilised debate here. I'm glad to see that the appearance of a royal could impact on national standing and that Letizia has plenty to rally round her if she's seen to be under attack. My admiration for her style has long been expressed here, but on this one occasion, I'm afraid I remain of the view that this suit looks as if it had been slept in.

Queen Letizia is wearing a very current look. Although this style may not be your favorite look I don’t believe that opinion rises to a criticism
