Loewe always has a firm grip on luxury that creeps up on you modestly — through these kind of barely describable formulas of fine fabrication, understated technical detail, evergreen palettes and motifs, and silhouettes that are as interesting and renegade as they are refined and lasting.
It makes sense then, that a label with such great taste and vision, is honouring the work of renowned architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh — influential to art nouveau and celebrated by modernists.
His work is varied, and so the capsule collection is too. A Puzzle bag comes informed by a stained-glass window; a Hammock bag comes by way of Mackintosh’s famous flower motifs; and Loewe’s new handheld item, the Gate, nods directly at his signature lattice designs.
And for the body, there’s full men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections constructed in cashmeres, silks and mohairs, detailed so nicely with Mackintosh’s paintings. And the blankets — in these we’d be happy to live forever.
