Loewe shifts its global design
Sunday 03 April 2011
Spanish luxury leather specialist Loewe is embarking on a global roll out of a store design by fashion's favourite architect, Peter Marino, despite being hit by the Japanese disaster.
Barcelona, Madrid, China, Japan and Taiwan have been targeted for the new breed of store design. Loewe's chief executive, the former Mulberry boss Lisa Montague, opened a Marino-designed outlet in Mayfair's Mount Street last month.
Loewe, which is part of French giant LVMH, had to close 15 of its 40 stores in Japan after the earthquake. A third of Loewe's business is in Japan and all but one of the stores has since reopened. Mrs Montague said: "Luckily the [closed Sendai] store is not as badly damaged as expected and we anticipate opening again on 8 April."
