Spanish luxury fashion house Loewe opens its first store in the Philippines at Shangri-La Plaza.
Spanning 68 square meters, the store follows the CASA LOEWE concept developed by creative director Jonathan Anderson. The concept was first introduced in Omotesando and taken to its fullest expression with the premiere of CASA LOEWE Madrid.
Evoking the ambience of a stately home, the Loewe Shangri-La boutique features stucco walls and polished Campaspero limestone flooring, giving off a chic, modern vibe, which pays homage to the brand’s European heritage.
The emerald green canopy of translucent green stone conjures up an image of modern Spain and references the captivating entrance to Loewe Madrid, which was designed by famed architect Javier Carvajal in 1959.
The sleek concrete on the facade reflects the brand identity—simple but elegant.
Celebrating the past and present, Loewe has carefully selected pieces of modern and traditional art to accentuate the space, including a tapestry by master weaver and knitter John Allen.
Further, lending a modern edge to the boutique are the original stools and chairs designed for the fall / winter 2018 fashion show in Paris, an Akari E Light Sculpture by Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi, as well as specially designed, handmade geometric rugs and heirloom cider presses obtained after a tireless pursuit across Spain, Portugal, and the South of France.
The store will carry a curated selection of leather goods, accessories, and eyewear.
The Loewe store at Shangri-La Plaza is now open and is located at Level 1, Shangri-La Plaza East Wing, Edsa corner Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City.
