Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
“I had little expectations before this book arrived. Alas and Piggott are relatively unknown in The Netherlands, but every fashion / photography enthusiast immediately falls in love with this limited edition. The typography of the box alone, is enough reason to purchase this book.”

“Loewe is a perfectly portrayed by J.W. Anderson. This book is creative direction as it should be: a scrapbook with everything that represents the ambiance of Loewe.”
