Loewe

An amazing journey through time, space, material, and craft.

LOEWE announced the house’s first major exhibition, Crafted World, which takes place at the Shanghai Exhibition Centre in Spring 2024. Crafted World will be a grand celebration of the house’s rich history, Spanish heritage, and commitment to the handmade, and will offer visitors the opportunity to get a taste of LOEWE’s world.

Curated by LOEWE’s creative director, Jonathan Anderson, and immersed in art and culture, the exhibition takes the audience on a journey through the brand’s legendary designs and cultural collaborations, the ones that have overseen its evolution from a leather-making collective in Madrid to one of the leading luxury fashion houses in the world. Anderson covers LOEWE’s illustrious history and rejuvenation, with Crafted World set up to showcase the progressive approach to fashion and the culture of craft over generations.

Crafted World is an interactive journey through time, space, material and techniques of making. Unfolding over 1,600 square metres of the Shanghai Exhibition Centre, it features plenty of artefacts and artworks to explore. The exhibition highlights to the audience the various intricate sights and sounds of Spain, the front row of the Paris runway, and, in a series of spectacularly interactive rooms, inside the visionary imaginations that have inspired LOEWE’s recent collections. It’s a story dedicated to the joy of making things by hand, shared by a community of crafts people and collaborators from around the world, from Indian ribbon-makers and Ecuadorian tapestry artists to South African basket-makers and Chinese bamboo weavers. It goes behind the scenes to reveal the many steps needed to bring LOEWE’s iconic designs to life.
