Loewe announce Craft Prize

Loewe Foundation Collage-solo-web.jpg

Spanish fashion house Loewe has announced it is launching a prize recognising outstanding achievements in craftsmanship. Spearheaded by Creative Director Jonathan Anderson, the annual international LoeweCraft Prize aims to “showcase and celebrate the work of  exceptionally talented artisans working in a range of craft-based professions”.

The Loewe Foundation, founded in 1988 by Enrique Loewe Lynch, was primarily established to support design and craftsmanship and was awarded the Gold Medal for Merit in the Fine Arts in 2002, the “highest honour granted by the Spanish Government”.

Craft is immensely important to me as an inspiration so I wanted to create a platform to highlight things that are engineered by hand, by ceramicists, basket-weavers, furniture designers, jewellery makers, and other people who work silently and are often under-appreciated. In reality, there is nothing harder than finding a way to make an object that has a formula of its own and speaks in the maker’s own language, creating a dialogue that didn’t exist before.

Jonathan Saunders, Creative Director, Loewe

Board member Ramón Puig Cuyàs, whose work is pictured above, will sit on the Experts Panel of Loewe’s Craft Prize. To celebrate his work in conjunction with the prize, a collection of his brooches will be exhibited in Loewe’s Mount Street store during the London Craft Week.

The winner of the Loewe Craft Prize 2017 will be announced in April 2017 and receive 50,000 Euros.

A look At Loewe’s new book

 

loewe-granvia-low

Luxury label Loewe began as a cooperative of leather artisans in the center of Madrid in 1846. The German entrepreneur Enrique Loewe Roessberg consolidated the workshop under his name in 1872, creating one of the world’s first luxury houses. As Loewe developed and expanded over the following century, a commitment to modernity emerged as a defining characteristic. In the 1950s and 1960s, Loewe’s offices and stores in Spain became a benchmark for international design thanks to the distinctive architecture and interiors designed by Javier Carvajal.

In 1970, artist Vicente Vela created the In 1970, artist Vicente Vela created the Anagram, the abstract symbol consisting of four intertwined Ls that has been stamped ever since on Loewe’s products as a sign of their material and technical excellence. Loewe’s first ready-to-wear clothing collection was launched in 1965, bringing fashion to the heart of the brand, and this was followed by the debut of the iconic Amazona bag in 1975.

This was also the decade in which Loewe broke into the luxury perfume sector with its debut fragrance, L de Loewe. From that time onward, it has continued to demonstrate its prowess in this field with each new perfume creation. Emilio Valeros has been Loewe’s ‘nose’ for over 20 years and has created some of the brand’s signature fragrances including Solo Loewe and Aura Loewe. In 1996 the company was acquired by the leading luxury group LVMH.

In October 2013, Jonathan Anderson became the brand’s Creative Director. Under his leadership, Loewe has rebranded its heritage of 169 years of craftsmanship and innovation with a view to setting its sights on the future.

Launched alongside the grand opening, just for their 170 years anniversary, of its Madrid boutique, a new Loewe book showcases the essence of what makes the maison stand out. Loewe has published a new self-titled book that takes a look at the maison’s 170 year history. Edited by famed publication expert Luis Venegas, the book intriguingly does not follow any typical format, instead opting to simply focus on the unique personality of the brand.

book-loewe-2

It’s not about making clear, linear connections. It’s just our favourite side of Loewe, what we think makes it different from any other house, all put into
 a book filled with images I fell in love with. It’s quite subjective.

Luis Venegas

Given artistic freedom by the brand’s Creative Director Jonathan Anderson, Venegas pored over a massive collection of materials, carefully selecting what truly reflects the brand and which offers an insight into its future.

I wanted Luis to go through our archives and decide what is relevant, with
 that very sharp, uncommon eye that he has. He has unearthed some incredible things that show how the language of what we’re doing at the house now, has always been there. I could not be happier.

Jonathan Anderson

The 592-page book ‘Past Present Future’ is filled with editorials and old advertising campaigns, as well as images of archival objects and artworks. The aim of the book is not only a celebration of the brand’s identity throughout the years, but an intimate insight into the universe of a future-focused brand – to be used by readers accordingly.

It’s not a book to be precious with. It’s a hefty block of paper that’s meant to be used and engaged with, documenting the entire universe of the brand until now, indicating where it stands and where it might go next.

Giorgio Armani, The Last Emperor

Officially the most succesfull Italian designer ever (his fortune is estimated over $8.5 billion!), Signor Giorgio Armani celebrates his 82th birthday today (born 11th July 1934).

GIORGIO-ARMANI

Particularly noted for his menswear. He is known today for his clean, tailored lines. He formed his company, Armani, in 1975, and by 2001 was acclaimed as the most successful designer that Italy has produced, with an annual turnover of $1.6 billion and a personal fortune of $8.5 billion as of 2013. He is credited with pioneering red-carpet fashion.

As famous for underpants, watches and accessories as for his sharp suits, his has been the style of choice for generations of stars of music, sport and the silver screen, politicians, dignitaries and even the Milanese police force.

He was born in the northern Italian town of Piacenza, of Armenian and Italian descent. After military service as a young man, he became a window dresser at La Rinascente department store in Milan.

Having worked on a freelance basis for myriad designers including Zegna, Cerruti and Loewe, the first pieces he designed under his own name were a series of leather bomber jackets in 1970.

While building his fashion empire, he also designed costumes for more than one hundred films including American Gigolo and The Untouchables

When in 1975 he brought out a womenswear line using men’s fabrics, he set the wheels in motion for the ‘power dressing’ look that became synonymous with the 80s.

Among his many commissions, he designed the costume worn by Spanish bullfighter Cayetano Rivera Ordóñez, the suits for the England football team (twice), and the cover of a book of gospels for the Pope

Loewe Solo Platinum

Loewe, the quintessential Spanish luxury brand established in  1846, unveiled in 2012 its new fragrance for men.

Loewe Solo is a fragrance that defines a contemporary man. For the perfectionist, sensitive, observant man. A man who aims to be exceptional, special, unique, balanced, sophisticated and elegant. Loewe has gone one step further to create the definitive perfume: Loewe Solo Platinum.

Loewe Solo Platinum 1

A leather fragrance for men. “Life is full of small details” says the blurb on the box and the latest fragrance from the Spanish luxury goods company certainly delivers on that – with the bottle at least, which is full of little surprises – from the quirky, hollowed-out lid to the wrap-around metal name plate.

 

Loewe Solo Platinum

Loewe Solo Platinum preserves the base notes of the original fragrance and has been conceived contrasting two sets of two perfectly balanced chords.

The resulting aroma is smoky, elegant, innovative and leathery with a hint of black tea, which had never been used before and creates a perfect balance with fresh lavender. It contains also notes of frankincense, benzoin, cedar, olibanum, black pepper & nutmeg.

The fragrance itself is and improves the longer it’s on the skin. It’s not going to change the world but is unique but perfectly wearable.

Loewe La Coleccion

It’s something very special when one of your favourite class act brands announces the launch of a perfume collection in conjunction with Harrods. Masters of Spanish sophistication and supple luxurious leather, Loewe, have done just that – La Coleccion by Loewe is a high density perfume de luxe onslaught of four fragrances especially created to reflect the elegant luxury of the Madrid house.

Created by Loewe’s in-house perfumer Emilio Valeros, in conjunction with the specialists at Harrods, these perfumes create a marking point in ‘how to do classic luxury without selling out a brand’.

Since the brand first opend its doors in 1846, four generations of highly skilled creatives and designers have worked at making Loewe a name to be revered. Thus, the four fragrances pay hommage to Loewe’s fine heritage through their beguiling sensuality and highly intense ingredients.

 

Loewe La Coleccion Madrid 1 2 3 and 4.jpg

Numbered 1 to 4, each with an underlying story and representative emotion attributed to them, the first thing that appealed, as well as the overwhelming sense of richness, was the ease of recognition. Each perfume is distinctive with it’s own character and personality that comes through, even on first application. Not for Loewe the over complicated naming process and navel gazing of earnestly trying to be ‘different’. Loewe’s breathe and touch comes through easily – why make it complicated when it can be oh, so simple?

Loewe La Coleccion perfumes were developed as four quirk and grandiose perfumes.
