Loewe is undoubtedly an expression of luxury fashion in Spain. The house Loewe was founded in 1892 by Enrique Loewe Roessberg, a German love with Spain and the know-how of Spanish leather craftsmen. In 1846, he opened a leather workshop in Lobo (current street Echegaray) in Madrid. A few years later, he has his first store under the name E. Loewe, and in 1905, Alfonso XIII granted to Enrique Loewe Hilton, the official supplier of the Royal House title.
In the eighties, models Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington highlighted Loewe to the press. With the arrival of Narciso Rodriguez, Cerruti and after the design by Carolyn Bissett wedding dress, the image of the clothing brand Loewe has reached the top.
In 1987, Loewe has reached agreement with the luxury goods group LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) to strengthen the international expansion of the company.
In 2001, José Enrique Oña Selfa was named designer of ready-to-wear women Loewe, providing fresh air while retaining the essence and tradition of the Spanish company.
One of the emblems of the house, the Amazona bag (designed by Dario Rossi in 1975 and which, according to legend, was the Hemingway Gift Ava Gardner) was designed with Napa 7000, considered the skin quality the highest in the world.
Loewe is a house closely linked to culture since its inception, so much so that she began by working with the promotion of the arts through Loewe Foundation International Poetry Prize, poet Octavio Paz that presided until his death .
Today, JW Anderson, Artistic Director of the brand is considered one of the best young British designers of the moment. Many are the personalities who have succumbed to the charm of the Spanish firm: Ava Gardner, Marlene Dietrich, Rita Hayworth, Sophia Loren and writer Ernest Hemingway.
