SNEAK PEEK AT LOEWE
Narciso Rodriguez’s official debut at Loewe won’t happen until his show next season during the fall ready-to-wear collections here in Paris, but he has already designed a teaser group for Loewe stores. The nine pieces — including silk separates, a beaded evening dress, a leather coat and a handbag in two sizes — will be featured for holiday selling in the windows of eight Loewe stores in Europe and Asia. Prices range from $400 for the chiffon camisole to $3,000 for the coat.
“The whole idea of putting this group together was to use the assets Loewe has to develop its more glamorous side,” Rodriguez says. “There’s a little bit of fun with the leather, but there’s also an embroidered lace skirt that’s a little more romantic and more Spanish — a good mix.”
