In Milan for Salone del Mobile? Stop by the ‘Loewe Baskets’ exhibition at the Via Montenapoleone store. Loewe is presenting an exhibition of basketry, hand quilting and calligraphy for their fifth project at the annual Salone del Mobile. Loewe has challenged traditional artists from around the world to work in a new medium – leather. These masters of handcraft have produced a series of exclusive objets d’art for the exhibition.
Also Loewe has commissioned leading Spanish artisans to create a collection of bags, accessories and home decorations that will be available for sale. The exhibition is open until April 14th. Existing bags like Puzzle, Cushion and Gate have been updated using weaving techniques and basketry aesthetics. The baskets will be available online from May 30.
