Loewe Unveils New Men’s Collection, Eye/LOEWE/Nature

NATURE BOYS — Loewe has launched a permanent extension to its men’s collection cleverly called Eye/LOEWE/Nature, a pun on the outdoorsy essence of the line and its focus on sustainable aspects.
The collection is comprised of accessories made in Japan, including a satchel, a tote and backpack styles, as well as parkas constructed from technical material, sweaters made from partly recycled cotton fibers, cargo shorts, trousers and shirts in the clothing categories. Prices start from $ 265 for swim briefs to $ 1,290 for a backpack and $ 1,650 for the long parka.
The collection is available now at the pop-up at 52 Brewer Street until Feb. 4 and in selected Loewe stores and loewe.com from Jan. 10. Additionally, Loewe will donate 15 euros (about $ 17 at current exchange rates) to help fight plastic pollution.
“The reality of [sustainability issues] kicked in when I was watching a program about how most of Europe gets a lot of food from Spain and, obviously, a lot of plastic packaging gets put into the ground as waste. And I thought, what can we do?” Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson told WWD at the launch party for a pop-up store for the collection on Brewer Street in Soho, London, a savvy location

Ceramist Jennifer Lee Wins Loewe Craft Prize

LONDON — An emotional Helen Mirren announced ceramist Jennifer Lee as the winner of the second annual Loewe Foundation Craft Prize at London Design Museum on Thursday.
“Are we both allowed to cry now?” asked Lee, whose spare, hand-coiled clay vessel wowed judges, including the prize’s founder, Jonathan Anderson, creative director of Loewe.
Mirren pointed to the “timelessness” of Lee’s work, which is called “Pale, Shadowed Speckled Traces, Fading Elipse, Bronze Specks, Tilted Shelf, 2017.” She called the 30 works in the competition “extraordinary manifestations of human abilities.”
Accepting the 50,000 euro award and silver bowl trophy designed by Alex Brogden, the Scotland-born Lee said that in “the age of the digital and mechanical, it is mind-boggling to see posters about this craft prize on the Tube.”
Lee’s work is on show in more than 40 public collections around the world. She has developed her own method of coloring by mixing metallic oxides into clay, and uses ancient techniques of pinching and coiling to create her work.
Some 30 craftspeople of various ages and nationalities competed for the prize, and their work will be on display at The Design Museum until June 17.
Honorable mentions were given to Takuro Kuwata for his porcelain, platinum and steel

Loewe Announces Finalists for Second Edition of Craft Prize

PARIS — The second edition of the Loewe Craft Prize is set to cement its reputation as a magnet for the most avant-garde work in the field, with creations ranging from a blown glass sphere more than one meter wide to a ceramic bowl covered in red Ferrari car paint.
The brainchild of Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson, the prize run by the Loewe Foundation drew close to 1,900 submissions from more than 75 countries.
Loewe on Thursday named the 30 finalists, and the winner — to be revealed on May 3 — will walk away with 50,000 euros. The list includes entries from as far afield as Japan, South Korea, China, Russia, Singapore, Chile, the U.S., Poland and the U.K., among others.
“The level has gone up, in terms of the types of people applying, ranging from amazing new people who you’ve never heard of, who are making things that are just fantastic, to incredibly well-known names,” said Anderson, noting the presence of established artists like Jennifer Lee and Takuro Kuwata, who both specialize in ceramics.
While the number of submissions is down by about half from the first edition, the designer sees this as a positive development. “It’s interesting that the level

Loewe Craft Prize Comes to New York

CRAFT MAGIC: Jonathan Anderson continued the tour of the Loewe Foundation Craft Prize exhibition in New York on Thursday. The exhibit started in April in Madrid with a showcase of the 26 finalists of the 4,000 applicants for the inaugural addition of the Craft Prize and is now in New York at the Chamber Gallery through June 6.
“I’ve wanted to do this project since I joined Loewe,” said Anderson, who’s also shooting his Loewe campaign while he’s in town. “It’s really important to support crafts people like this.” The lineup featured work from various disciplines: Pottery by Sangwoo Kim of South Korea, gold and silversmithing by Robert Baines of Australia, lacquering by Igawa Takeshi of Japan, embroidery by Leo Chiachio and Daniel Giannone of Buenos Aires, weaving by Anne Low of Vancouver, with whom Anderson is collaborating on an upcoming project, and the winning work of wood carving by Ernst Gamperl of Munich, Germany.
Gamperl’s piece, called “Tree of Life 2” is a large wooden vase carved from a 300-year-old oak tree uprooted during a storm. “I plan to make a collection out of it and to keep all the objects together,” he said. “In two or three years it will

Charlotte Rampling Shares Fear of the Dark at Loewe Show

DARK MATTER: The Loewe show on Saturday morning, held in a blacked-out space inside UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris, brought out a fear of the dark in guests including Charlotte Rampling.
Guided by ushers with torchlights, the British actress had to cross three rooms to get to her seat. The only other sources of light were the spotlights trained on photographs from the Twenties by Lionel Wendt and the orchids dotted throughout the space.
“I did something which really worried me once in Berlin. I was taken during the festival, when I was president, to a restaurant run by blind people, and they take you into complete darkness,” she said.
“Here it’s not complete darkness, but something does happen to me. I’m not that comfortable with it, although I just love to be able to focus on what I’m seeing, from the orchids and the photography – just that they’re brought out in this way I think is extraordinary,” Rampling continued.
“I think the concept is extraordinary and I love it. It doesn’t really matter what I feel, because it’s actually what’s going to happen that’s important,” she said (sounding like a pro who is used to taking direction.)
Rampling will be seen next in “The Sense
