Editor’s Notes: Loewe continues its tribute to the iconic Paula’s Boutique with a Balearic-inspired tie-dye collection of menswear, womenswear, and elephant and octopus-shaped accessories. There’s also some fragrance.
Loewe will be donating €40 to educational projects for children for every product sold between May and August in Loewe stores and the official webstore. This follows an initial donation of €500,000 in partnership with Plataforma de Infancia to protect children’s and adolescents’ rights. It will also launch educational programs in Spain this summer.
The SS20 drop also comes with a note from creative director Jonathan Anderson who writes, “I know this is not exactly an ideal time to launch products, but this is a project all the craftspeople at Loewe have been lovingly working on for some time […] This is a happy, undeniably escapist collection, conveyed through colorful and energetic images and I thought it might cheer you up. As a visual feast, probably, or an aide-mémoire of better times to come.”
Loewe is acknowledging the Covid-19 outbreak by announcing a donation of 100,000 surgical masks to the Spanish Red Cross. Further masks will be created in the brand’s Getafe factory.
