  • LOEWE began as a cooperative of leather artisans in the centre of Madrid in 1846. It is one of the world’s oldest major luxury houses. By 1910, Loewe had acquired a reputation as the most luxurious leather goods supplier in the city and began expansion over the Spanish territory. In 1934 Enrique Loewe Knappe took over the company and there followed a succession of store openings and expansions.

    Afrodita is a fabulous rimless frame from ELK. We particularly love the bridge detail on this 22kt gold plated and platinum model. The temporal sides are mid-set and feature the ELK signature. Luxury rimless glasses. 

    Enrique Loewe Knappe glasses and sunglasses we manufactured for a one-time only collection so each piece is extremely rare and has its own unique numerical identifier. The frames are 22kt gold plated and all new unused old stock.

    These spectacles were created by Enrique Loewe Knappe to be an objet d’art. They have been manufactured using exquisite and refined materials fashioned by the best and most prestigious craftsmen in the industry. Being produced in a limited series the spectacles have been individually numbered as a guarantee of their exclusiveness.

    The frames contain quality features which combine the leading edge of technology and craftsmanship. Automatic processes are only used where necessary in order to order precision measurement. A complex process using precious metal coatings, such palladium, platinum and 22kt gold plated in strategic coats of differing thicknesses achieve a high gold plate (HGP) Turing these frames into a jewel.

    By the end of the 60’s Loewe was beginning to expand internationally. Fans of the brand included Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth, Sophia Loren and Ernest Hemingway.

    All spectacles supplied with a brand new spectacle case and a Retro Spectacle microfibre cleaning cloth.

    This frame must be fitted with our Super Strong lenses.
