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.
Loewe also launched its Autumn Winter 2016/2017 Pre Fall Collection. Selected pieces are now available on loewe.cm/PreFall16.
