Loewe Unveils New Men’s Collection, Eye/LOEWE/Nature

NATURE BOYS — Loewe has launched a permanent extension to its men’s collection cleverly called Eye/LOEWE/Nature, a pun on the outdoorsy essence of the line and its focus on sustainable aspects.
The collection is comprised of accessories made in Japan, including a satchel, a tote and backpack styles, as well as parkas constructed from technical material, sweaters made from partly recycled cotton fibers, cargo shorts, trousers and shirts in the clothing categories. Prices start from $ 265 for swim briefs to $ 1,290 for a backpack and $ 1,650 for the long parka.
The collection is available now at the pop-up at 52 Brewer Street until Feb. 4 and in selected Loewe stores and loewe.com from Jan. 10. Additionally, Loewe will donate 15 euros (about $ 17 at current exchange rates) to help fight plastic pollution.
“The reality of [sustainability issues] kicked in when I was watching a program about how most of Europe gets a lot of food from Spain and, obviously, a lot of plastic packaging gets put into the ground as waste. And I thought, what can we do?” Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson told WWD at the launch party for a pop-up store for the collection on Brewer Street in Soho, London, a savvy location

Loewe to Showcase Artisans’ Work at Salone del Mobile

Milan’s Salone del Mobile is still several months away, but Loewe is already busy finessing the specially commissioned tote bags and blankets that will showcase decorative panels crafted in different parts of the world. The yearlong project required Loewe to travel through Europe, Asia, Africa and South America culling artisanal textiles that bring together the traditional with a more modern flair. The furniture and design extravaganza runs from April 17-22 in Milan.
In total, the 50 styles of blankets and tapestries with 12 limited-edition-related shoppers blend age-old traditions with more avant-garde craftsmanship. The specialists have created items such as blankets with the Japanese “boro” technique; African patchwork from Togo and Senegal; India-made ribbon embroidery, and styles woven with hemp, jersey or leather. Some of the more unexpected techniques include a safety-pin appliqué, needle-punch leopard-like spots, Spanish shearling intarsia and black-and-white portrait photography printed on feathers. The assortment includes a blanket and a tote bag from India with ribbon embroidery, and another tote bag with traditional Andean imagery.
Attendees at Salone del Mobile will get a better grasp of just how all these adornments are done via videos that document the artisans making tapestries in their respective corners of the world. The Loewe-led effort

Loewe Craft Prize Comes to New York

CRAFT MAGIC: Jonathan Anderson continued the tour of the Loewe Foundation Craft Prize exhibition in New York on Thursday. The exhibit started in April in Madrid with a showcase of the 26 finalists of the 4,000 applicants for the inaugural addition of the Craft Prize and is now in New York at the Chamber Gallery through June 6.
“I’ve wanted to do this project since I joined Loewe,” said Anderson, who’s also shooting his Loewe campaign while he’s in town. “It’s really important to support crafts people like this.” The lineup featured work from various disciplines: Pottery by Sangwoo Kim of South Korea, gold and silversmithing by Robert Baines of Australia, lacquering by Igawa Takeshi of Japan, embroidery by Leo Chiachio and Daniel Giannone of Buenos Aires, weaving by Anne Low of Vancouver, with whom Anderson is collaborating on an upcoming project, and the winning work of wood carving by Ernst Gamperl of Munich, Germany.
Gamperl’s piece, called “Tree of Life 2” is a large wooden vase carved from a 300-year-old oak tree uprooted during a storm. “I plan to make a collection out of it and to keep all the objects together,” he said. “In two or three years it will

Loewe Sets Prize for Excellence in Craft

PARIS — Recently in Donegal, Ireland, Jonathan Anderson happened upon a gallery sheltering a wizard at basket weaving, Joe Hogan, whose dazzling architectural shapes “looked like Henry Moore sculptures.”
“It’s phenomenal to see how someone can think completely differently,” Anderson said.
The fashion designer’s passion for craftsmanship is expressed in his latest initiative as creative director of Loewe: A new annual international craft prize that comes with 50,000 euros in cash, or $ 57,000 at current exchange rate, along with exposure via a traveling exhibition and catalog.
Disclosing details of the competition in an exclusive interview, Anderson said it’s open to “anyone in the world who feels like they are doing modern craft.”
Submissions are open from Tuesday through Nov. 7 via a dedicated Web site at loewecraftprize.com.
An expert panel is to select 14 finalists by February 2017, with the winner selected by the jury in April. All the objects are to be displayed in Madrid in May and subsequently travel through Europe, Asia and the United States.
The prize’s objective is to recognize “newness and artistic merit in modern craftsmanship,” according to Loewe, noting that the winning item must reflect “functional and aesthetic value” in equal measure, and be realized with a reinterpretation of “traditional methods
