My research so far and a guide of what the concept is what to also include CEOs words – Loewe is in an interesting position. Since his arrival in 2013, creative director Jonathan Anderson has created for it a sophisticated, craft-based artful identity. – the brand “still has low awareness beyond the fashion circles,” particularly in the United States. Among her goals: increasing awareness without sacrificing Loewe’s distinctive cerebral quirkiness. – Another expectation: breaking the billion- euro mark within four years, which should be “not too complicated” to achieve. Yet Lepoivre declines to use the word target, maintaining that smart growth and respect for the brand’s identity are more important than excessive focus on a number. – We targeted a list of eight to 10 fashion capitals where people travel. We think the brand has to have a stronger representation and a full, holistic representation in these cities. – it is known for a vibrant lifestyle, maybe for a bit of unconventional creativity. So all of this gives us very big freedom to design our own path blend of impeccable craftsmanship but at the same time the whimsical creativity and a bit of the real-life aspect. – To combine the experimentation and a bit of radical [design] with the effortless lifestyle that is legitimate thanks to the Spanish vibe. – We try to be quite open, quite approachable. Obviously, we try to make luxury that makes people interested or that makes them feel curious and excited. – Jonathan has always been obsessed with art, and I think it fits with the brand. The stores as well, the art is a very good way to express the brand – Especially with these flagships, we ultimately consider physical stores as media, a communication tool. – I think the obsession and the expertise for things well-made – As we do, we want really to keep this quirkiness or this freedom to mix things that usually don’t go together [with significant growth]. – We are completely obsessed with with making things, inventing things, whether objects or clothes. – [Loewe Craft Prize], promoting and recognizing the importance of people who do creative stuff with their hands – and warmth, a homey feeling. This sense of warmth is really important. Yearly furniture capsule collection for Loewe – As one of Loewe’s main brand elements is craftsmanship we want to propose a new furniture line for them. – Loewe has since 2016 given out a LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize to artists and designers who innovate craftsmanship for the future. – As a new part of the Loewe foundation they will now as well have a design furniture competition and the finalists will then produce a capsule collection together with Loewe. 4Ps Marketing Strategy Product: The furniture will be in line with the Loewe foundations guidelines for the original craft prize. It should also have a sustainable focus and be made of natural materials. -be an original work, handmade or partly handmade – have been created in the last five years – be one-of a-kind – have won no prizes previously – demonstrate artistic intent. Price: The pricing strategy will be in line with Loewe’s other products keeping in mind that furniture of course will cost much more that a handbag. As an example, a table designed by the finalist will cost around XX. The profits will be split 30/70 with the larger amount going to the emerging designer. Promotion: The promotion strategy will focus on the designer and story around the craftsmanship. To create a hype around the collection there will only be a limited number of products and they will be released one after another. Place: The products can be ordered online or bought at selected flagship stores. In the flagship stores a room will be dedicated for the collection and styled with a home-feel, so the customers can imagine how the products will look in their homes.
