Founded in 1846 in Madrid by Enrique Loewe Roessberg, Loewe is one of the oldest luxury brands in the world and a proud part of Spain's luxury leather industry that dates back over 1300 years.

Granted the honour of Supplier to the Royal Court by King Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia in 1905, the company is now run by Enrique Loewe Hilton, son of founder Roessberg. Loewe continues to trade on its rich heritage and the rich craftmanship of Spain famed for the unrivalled quality of its lambskin napa leather of which a very small amount is accepted by Loewe's leather experts.

In October 2013, Jonathan Anderson was appointed creative director. Under his helm, Loewe reconfigures a 168-year-old legacy of craft and innovation to take it into the future. Loewe was previously creatively led by artistic director Stuart Vevers who, having led other flagship leather heritage brands Bottega Veneta and Mulberry continued to match the standards of the craft and materials with a creativity also integral to Loewe since its postwar heyday where José Pérez de Rozas creatively helmed the brand, a man of which fourth generation Loewe family member Enrique Loewe Lynch says ‘if [he] had lived in Paris, he would be as famous as Christian Dior’.

Today, Loewe strives to stay true to its illustrious heritage whilst displaying the relevance of leather to contemporary fashion.
