LOEWE Past, Present, Future exhibition is on display at the Villanueva Pavilion, a former greenhouse at Madrid’s Real Jardín Botánico. Runs through 9 December 2016.

An innovative display system of large acrylic glass boxes will showcase one-of-a kind pieces from LOEWE’s archives and contemporary collections, exemplifying the brand’s union of advanced leather craft and pure functional design, while walls and floors will be covered with images evoking the rich history and current momentum of the house, all taken from the new LOEWE book edited by Luis Venegas.
