Spanish fashion brand Loewe have taken up residence in a new flagship store on Bond Street, populating the space not just with clothes, but also a growing anthology of gallery-worthy objects. The brand's creative director Jonathan Anderson has been instrumental in the formation of this new space, overseeing every element, from the architectural design, to the textiles that run throughout the store. Designed to evoke the home of a collector, its purpose is to act as representation of the brand in a wider sense. Over time, the collection will evolve and change, like a gallery-meets-shop-meets-showroom, filled with covetable furniture, art and pieces by the winners of the annual Loewe Craft Prize.

The selection on display includes three oak sculptures by Ernst Gamperl (winner of the 2017 prize), a Grayson Perry ceramic titled 'Mum and Dad' and Axel Vervoodt 'Floating Stone' coffee tables. The most impressive pieces on show, however, are the 'Volcano Table' by Turner Prize nominee Anthea Hamilton and a William Turnbull 'Icon' sculpture from 1956. Another from the series is part of the Tate collection, demonstrating the calibre of Loewe's curation.
