Storied leather luxury house Loewe has finally brought its Leather Icons collection to Singapore. The non-seasonal collection (launched in 2010) consists of the Spanish brand’s key leather pieces — all in supple Nappa leather. Creative director Stuart Vevers reaffirms the label’s love for leather: “Loewe is leather. It’s what makes the house special and something that we have a real authority in. Clothing in leather has been part of Loewe’s repertoire for decades and this is the next evolution of that. It’s Loewe’s soul.” The Marina Bay Sands South-east Asian flagship store will carry 17 out of the 19 pieces — six for men and 11 for women. Highlights of the collection include The Trench, The LBD (Leather Black Dress) and The Blouson — a round-collared shirt jacket.
Prices start from $3,690 for a pencil skirt to $7,090 for a shearling jacket.
