Loewe presents Spring/Summer 2017 capsule collection with Paula’s Ibiza

Paris, 2017-May-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — For the summer season Loewe presents a special collaboration with Paula’s Ibiza. Revisiting iconic designs and prints, the collection celebrates the artistry of the founders and a cultural phenomenon whose indelible legacy marked a generation with pieces that express the fun, art and glamour of the Ibizan way of life.

The new collection sprang from memories of childhood trips by Loewe Creative Director Jonathan Anderson to the Balearic island. The Spring/Summer 2017 capsule collection was conceived with Armin Heinemann, co-founder of the Spanish brand, who provided Loewe with original prints from the archive.

Paula’s Ibiza best-sellers have been updated in a capsule collection that combines the essential qualities behind Paula’s – harmony, exuberance and freedom – with Loewe’s core values of  functionality, modernity and superior craftsmanship. The collection consists of crêpe tops, skirts and dresses in hues ranging from saffron to vivid turquoise. Accessories include versions of Loewe’s popular Puzzle bag and T Pouch featuring a colorful parrot motif. Fitting for life on an island, there are also towels and espadrilles.

To celebrate the collaboration, Loewe and M/M (Paris) are producing a limited-edition publication including an exclusive essay about Paula’s and featuring images shot by Jamie Hawkesworth, available online from iTunes.

LVMH Houses – Fendi, Louis Vuitton and Loewe present at the Milan International Furniture Fair

 

Paris, 2017-Apr-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — Milan, Italy showcases the latest in furniture and design at the Milan International Furniture Fair, from April 4-9. Three LVMH Houses – Fendi, Louis Vuitton and Loewe – are taking part in the event, proposing a sophisticated and intimate art de vivre with collections that blend design, fashion and craft.

FENDI CASA

Fendi Casa presents an elegant and refined collection at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2017, featuring an exclusive version of the Palmer sofa by French industrial designer Toan Nguyen dubbed Six Shades of Palmer. With a dégradé of six hues ranging from intense passion red to a delicate powder pink, his design enhances the graphic lines of the sofa, which has a modular structure to play on the contrasts.  Other items in the collection feature trompe-l’œil motifs on wallpaper, plays on volume with the sinuous lines of the new Stiletto chair, and the elegant Ford table. Tones oscillate between neutral nuances like ivory, chalk and ecru to shades of green, pastel pink and cherry.  A harmonious balance between design and fashion, the Fendi Casa collection celebrates elegant lines and high-quality materials.

LOUIS VUITTON

Created in 2012, the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection carries on the Maison’s long tradition of crafting exceptional travel objects. The collection is enriched with ten new items this year, the fruit of collaborations between designers and Louis Vuitton that embody shared ideals. Inspired by Brazilian bombocas candies, the playful sofa by the Campana brothers is designed like a puzzle with eight removable cushions. The talisman-inspired nomadic side table by India Mahdavi features remarkable leather marquetry, while the leather straps on the stunning chair by Atelier Oï resemble Louis Vuitton belts.

LOEWE

For its third contribution to the Milan International Furniture Fair, Loewe presents its Loewe: This is Home collection. A category-spanning universe that combines art forms and expert craft techniques, the line encompasses furniture, lamps, blankets, ceramics and cushions. Conceived by Jonathan Anderson in the spirit of a collage, the collection brings together canework, ceramic vessels with leather details and dyed wool motifs. Handmade in Spain and the U.K., the pieces invite fashion and craft into the home. After Milan, the project will travel to Paris, London and Madrid.

Madrid, Spain, 2016-Nov-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — Loewe has unveiled CASA LOEWE Madrid, an innovative concept envisioned by Creative Director Jonathan Anderson, which explores the roots of a House where fashion goes hand-in-hand with art. This first flagship in Spain, and also the largest, has taken up residence in a historic building in the capital.

Founded in 1846, Loewe is now reconquering the city of its birth with a one-of-a-kind flagship. Located in the heart of Madrid, the new space, which extends over 1,000 m², showcases the entire spectrum of the Loewe universe. The men’s and women’s collections are complemented by specialized departments for exotic leather items and made-to-measure.

The Iberian limestone and wood interior reflects natural light on artworks meticulously selected by the Creative Director and specially acquired for the flagship store. Works by Edmund de Waal dialogue with others by Richard Smith, Gloria Garcia Lorca and Sir Howard Hodgkin. Inspired by the life and work of the British author and florist Constance Spry, CASA LOEWE also incorporates a flower shop, contributing to the space’s unique and vibrant atmosphere.

To celebrate the opening of the new flagship and express his gratitude to the Spanish capital, Jonathan Anderson designed an exhibition for Madrid’s Royal Botanic Garden on the theme of past, present and future, highlighting the House’s evolution and its resolutely forward-looking philosophy. Evoking the rich history of Loewe, the first part of the exhibition displays, in a room entirely covered with images, a collection of unique archive pieces in glass boxes. A second section is devoted to photographs of flower arrangements by Steven Meisel, whose images represent the fresh dynamism of the House.

The flagship opening and exhibition coincide with the release of an album of photographs in collaboration with Spanish publisher Luis Venegas, which is conceived as a spontaneous journey through the esthetic history of the House.

001: Loewe launches its first fragrance under Jonathan Anderson

Paris, 2016-Oct-04 — /EPR Retail News/ — Loewe has launched 001, its first fragrance under Jonathan Anderson. Loewe’s creative director has imagined a scent in both “Woman” and “Man” versions, inspired by the idea of the morning after a first romantic encounter.

Loewe’s first fragrance under Jonathan Anderson, 001 is the sensory expression of the spirit the young Creative Director has brought to the House since his arrival in 2014, a subtle blend of fresh innovation and rich heritage. 001 is an invention that captures both the distinctive character of Loewe and the zeitgeist of the times.

“This is a very personal project for me. I spent a lot of time working on it because it’s something I really believe in. Above all, I wanted the fragrance to feel credible, an organic extension of what Loewe stands for today,” Jonathan Anderson explains.

Created in two versions, “Woman” and “Man”, 001 is inspired by the emotions of the early hours after a first intimate encounter between two people, a moment that leaves a scented memory on the skin, interpreting the notions of purity and uncertain promise. Loewe 001 “Woman” blends top notes of bergamot and tangerine with a heart note of sandalwood and hints of jasmine and vanilla in the base notes. The “Man” version has the same combination of scents with masculine undertones of cedar and musk. Both fragrances can be easily interchanged and mixed, like a mixed wardrobe that melds feminine and masculine codes.

Inspired by the photographic artwork of Karl Blossfeldt, whose botanical images were adapted as prints in Loewe’s Spring/Summer 2016 women’s ready-to-wear collection, Jonathan Anderson selected two images for the packaging of 001, beginning a new chapter in the creative story of the Maison.

LVMH: Givenchy, Berluti, Kenzo, Dior and Loewe presented looks that will define Fall/Winter 2016/17 trends at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris

PARIS, 2016-Feb-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — Men’s Fashion Week took place in Paris from January 21-24. Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Berluti, Kenzo, Dior and Loewe all presented looks that will define Fall/Winter 2016/17 trends.

Louis Vuitton
An eternal traveler, the Louis Vuitton man has returned to his roots, taking inspiration from Parisians of yesterday and today for his Fall/Winter wardrobe. From Baron de Redé to the Art Deco period, Men’s Style Director Kim Jones draws on a variety of inspirations. Silk ensembles and large scarves accessorized the necks of sophisticated silhouettes, while military berets, khaki bomber jackets and backpacks equip the urban adventurer. The Vuitton man is above all a traveler who is constantly on the move, wearing the traces of his voyages on his jackets and t-shirts, which are marked with the Louis Vuitton stamp like a passport, the signature of the show.

Givenchy
Riccardo Tisci has designed an unabashedly virile menswear collection, symbolizing his stylistic freedom by blending strong pieces with low-key looks. Like the Bostwana Renegades, young African heavy metal fans who inspired the creative director, his silhouettes are dressed in black leather jackets and bomber jackets with cobra motifs. Meanwhile, fringes, large-buckled belts and velvet ankle boots reinvent the cowboy figure. Tweed suit coats and close-fitting black suits add calm to the collection. Twelve female models made an entrance over the course of the show, draped in haute couture designs from Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection.

Berluti
Alessandro Sartori’s collection for Berluti is marked by sophisticated minimalism. Square volumes leave ample room for a laid-back vibe: shirts are replaced by loose T-shirts and turtlenecks with rolled up sleeves, pants reveal a naked ankle and shoes worn without socks. Shoe models have been reinvented, connecting the shoemaker’s craftmanship with the codes of sports footwear. Pieces made from soft materials are marked by striped graphics, as well as tattoo art imagined by artist Scott Campbell. Drawn onto the models’ skin, tattoos are also present on shoes, bags, knitwear and scarves, adding a folk-rock touch to the collection.

Kenzo
Kenzo sent out its Fall/Winter looks to the sound of a hundred singing voices gathered in the center of the podium. The vibrations of the chorus joined together with those of this eclectic collection, with its printed silk shirts, velvet coats, wide woolen pants and imitation-alligator jackets. Kenzo’s color palette, as audacious as ever, ranges from burgundy to mustard to pastel blue. The palette is completed by Japanese-inspired motifs, an homage by Carol Lim and Umberto Leon to Kenzo Takada, the founder of the brand, whose handwritten signature was printed on several pieces in the collection.

Dior
Subversion defines the mood for Kris Van Assche’s Fall/Winter 2016/17 collection. On a podium transformed into a chic skate park, silhouettes combine traditional codes with New Wave culture. Narrow suit jackets contrast with oversized pants, white shirts borrow checked motifs from overcoats, and accessories are in full rebellion: Dior’s emblematic pink is matched with dark wardrobe colors and coupled with black, conveying a resolutely youthful and contemporary vision of the Dior man.

Loewe
No catwalk for Loewe, which opted for a presentation in Paris in conjunction with the launch of a new media campaign, revealing a striking menswear collection. Inspired by the rocky natural setting of Cuenca, Spain, Jonathan Anderson continues to rework the House signature, imagining a collection of raw, wild elegance. Organic materials and animal motifs give a primitive flavor to the silhouettes, whose movements are freed thanks to extra-wide cuts. The Loewe creative director designed the accessories in XXL formats, notably the bags, including the collection’s newest addition, the Goya.
