Loewe is a quintessentially Spanish brand. It’s fine luxury leather goods have been much sought after by the Spanish aristocracy and bourgeoisie pretty much since its opening in 1846. Yet, the Madrid-based brand seems to have international relations built into its DNA: it was founded by a German who settled in Madrid and its Creative Director, Stuart Vevers, hails from the north of England, though of course, he too is somewhat international having previously worked for Givenchy, Vuitton and Marc Jacobs.
Over the years, the Spanish trunk maker has evolved and diversified, producing desirable men’s and women’s collections far beyond luggage. However, with their strong heritage for producing the finest quality bags and cases, it’s inevitable that they wouldn’t want us to forget it.
With predictions of a fluorescent summer from numerous quarters, it’s easy to see why Loewe’s natty little bags that combine a dazzling handle with that almost suntanned classic beige have been snapped up by the hippest outlets such as London’s Dover Street Market.
