‪‎Spanish luxury fashion house LOEWE‬ launched its second collaboration with textile designer John Allen specialising in printed, woven and knitted fabrics. The colourful textile designs are the starting point for a special collaboration which includes bags, small leather goods, keyrings, espadrilles and silk scarves, among other items.

John Allen’s designs were re-interpreted in leather using ‪LOEWE‬’s newly presented marquetry technique.

Combining craftsmanship and technology, in this elaborate manual inlay process, motifs are created from variously shaped and coloured laser-cut fragments of leather.

LOEWE’s creative director Jonathan Anderson has selected two new British landscape-inspired designs by John Allen – ‘Lost Dog’ and ‘Stonehenge’ – to be used as prints on the newly introduced T Bucket bag and on LOEWE’s popular T Pouch.
