A Mackintosh Tribute
This Winter season, Loewe also presented a collection inspired by the work of renowned architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1914). The Puzzle, Flamenco Tote, Bunny Bag and Gate bag have each been given a Mackintosh twist for this special collection. “Regarded as one of the originators of Modernism, his seismic influence on the 20th century Arts & Crafts movement is still being felt to this day,” explained Loewe.
With a full Accessories line and Ready-to-Wear for men and women, the Mackintosh capsule collection celebrates the vast scope of the designer’s work, from his architecture through to his furniture design. Playing with the various facets of the Mackintosh universe, LOEWE honours his distinctive aesthetic by incorporating his signature grid patterns, stained glass windows and botanical watercolours across the range.
Architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh was heavily inspired by his father’s garden. The rose, seen on the silk scarf or the wallets, is a reoccurring motif in Mackintosh’s work.
