For this year’s capsule collection, Loewe looks to Ken Price as the inspiration as motifs from the La Palme, Easter Island, LA Series and Happ’s Curios are featured and interpreted as prints, allover prints, intarsia and leather marquetry, unfolding on pieces of clothing as well as leather accessories.
With their sunny landscapes, bright pop colors and palms, I found the two LA Series particularly inspiring in terms of stylistic mood: the collection is joyous and very laid back, with loose volumes and cropped culotte trousers that capture LA’s quintessential ease. Ken Price’s colorful drawings feature as prints on silk shirts, sweatshirts and t-shirts, but also on washed denim trousers, drawstring skirts and shirts. The same motifs turn into intarsia on cashmere cardigans and jumpers. Hooded sweatshirts, blousons, silk twill scarves, long mohair scarves and palm-shaped scarves complete the offer.
Palms and coastal and urban landscapes unfold in intarsia fashion all over the surface of iconic Loewe bags such as the Puzzle and the Hammock, as well as on small leather goods. Loewe’s dedication to craft meets Ken Price’s spirit. In addition, the vibrant landscapes of the Easter Island series are featured as prints in canvas on Balloon and Cushion Bamboo Tote bags and on canvas and calfskin pouches. Launched with the Ken Price capsule is the intensely crafted Fringes series, consisting of finely woven leather baskets.
