This historic Spanish leather house was founded in 1846 by a few leatherworkers from Madrid. In 1876 the company was renamed LOEWE. The brand is sometimes compared to Hermes, because LOEWE uses high quality leather and the degree of finish is phenomenal . Today Jonathan W Anderson is the creative director. He gives the brand new impetus with iconic pieces such as the balloonbag, the puzzlebag and the gate.
