Loewe Lives!!

Some of the long-storied European fashion houses have more or less gone kaput.  Ones like Vionette, Paquin and Schiaparelli have basically disappeared, despite producing some ground-breaking and wonderful designs.  

Ones of these houses that is trying to rebuild itself up from the forgotten ashes of history is Loewe.  It was started in 1846 in Madrid, Spain and specialized in leather goods.  In the 1960's it started producing ready-to-wear apparel with the help of designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Armani.  Eventually, the brand grew and was bought by LVMH where it is truly expanding into the international luxury market, where it makes leather goods, ready-to-wear and an impact on fashion.

The Loewe dress pictured is absolutely delicious!  The color is heavenly, the cut is flattering and is the perfect party dress.  It is a wonderful sign that Loewe is still on its rise to being one of the top international luxury brands!
