As the Spanish jewel in LVMH’s crown, Loewe delivers on covetable leather bags – they have, after all, been its bread and butter ever since German craftsman Enrique Loewe Roessberg founded the brand in the 1800s. But, starting on October 26, Loewe will be showcasing three extremely covetable and completely one-off designs created by stylist Edward Enninful, accessories designer Judy Blame and i-D magazine’s creative director Terry Jones.
The bags – a sleek black patent number with crocodile handles from Enninful, a lacquered and metallic leather design (first picture) from Jones and Blame’s red and black creation, complete with a specially designed detachable jewellery piece for the handle (second picture) – will be on view in Loewe’s London Mount Street flagship store, and customers can bid in the silent auction (which runs until November 23) for a chance to snap up one of the three unique designs.
All proceeds will support homeless young people through the charity Centre Point, which highlights that a mere 40p a day can provide a warm, safe room, along with training and advice to help young people get back into education or employment.
