Beginning in 1846 in Madrid as a collective of artisans, Loewe is one of the oldest luxury leather goods company. The attention to detail and expertise in leather work has earned the brand a worldwide reputation for their soft and supple clutches, totes, messenger bags. The designer Jonathan Anderson took over as creative director in 2013, and since then the brand has been infused with a contemporary fashion-forward mood and ahead-of-the-curve designs.
