Fine art and high fashion collide very often at Loewe. This season, Jonathan Anderson turned the works of ceramicist Ken Price (1935 – 2012) into wearable art. Blue sky thinking: the American artist’s optimistic ceramics and vibrant, sunny landscapes are featured in this capsule collection of ready-to-wear and accessories by the Madrid-based label. Ken Price’s eclectic influences ranged from Mexican folk art to surf culture and defied categorization. He was committed to clay as a material, producing both abstract and biomorphic forms, as well as more functional objects.

Explore the Loewe x Ken Price collection by motif. Choose between the artist’s La Palme, Easter Island and Happy Curios series.
Capturing L.A.’s quintessential ease, Price’s colourful drawings feature as prints on silk shirts, sweatshirts and cropped culottes, or as intarsia on cashmere cardigans and jumpers.
Loewe’s famous intarsia technique has been used to translate the brightly coloured motifs across signature shapes such as the Puzzle, Bamboo Bucket and Hammock bags.
Reflecting the spirit of Ken Price’s handcrafted aesthetic, the Fringes series of intensely crafted finely woven leather basket bags is launching alongside the capsule collection.
