As the creative director of LOEWE, Jonathan Anderson is reconfiguring the elements that make up the rich legacy of the house, including the unparallelled knowledge of leather that is its core expertise. Today, both at the LOEWE studio in Paris and at the house’s workshops in Spain, a continual investigation of the aesthetic, material and functional possibilities of leather is taking place. The Bowls Project, a laboratory exploring new forms and unrevealed facets of leather, is part of this endeavour. 3 sets of 50 unique leather bowls in various sizes, forming an ensemble that plays with scale and perception, blurring the boundary between sculpture and design and confounding sight and touch through surprising materiality. #LOEWEprojects

John Allen

The carpet designs of master weaver and knitter John Allen, characterised by their extraordinary sense of colour and abstracted scenes of the British landscape, are the starting point for a special collection of Summer accessories —colourful beach bags and towels along with wallets and playful keyrings, among other items— arriving in LOEWE stores this spring. LOEWE project highlighting the work of an artist of exceptional cultural value, creative director Jonathan Anderson selected three of Allen’s bucolic designs —Falling Leaves, Cornish Harbour and Pink House in Cumbria— to be used as prints on totes, duffle bags, scarves and large beach towels. ‘John’s use of colour and the purity of his work translates perfectly to LOEWE, which stands for the very best in craft today,’ says Anderson.

Ramon Puig

A series of abstract graphics featured on shirts from LOEWE’s new men’s collection marks one more collaborative project, a celebration of Catalan master Ramon Puig Cuyas, whose work assembles material expertise, formal inventiveness and impeccable execution to create extraordinary jewellery that straddles the boundary between art and design.
