Jonathan Anderson’s Loewe show captured a remarkable state of the collective desire for spiritual escape into what he described as a “naive dream state”.
The label’s desire to transport you to this “state” is shown by a penchant for primal notions of craftsmanship, which spanned from tunics, caftans, sailor’s shirts, to wafting-layered bottoms, completing a picture that saw the brand sourcing its inspiration from a global yet ultra-cultivated influence. The fluidity and naturalistic nature of the first quarter juxtapose the mid-section of the collection, encompassing the likes of alternative tuxedos, trench coats and two-button blazers that paved their way into this season’s offering. This collection, grounded to the core, spooked an inventory of resourceful knitwear, moccasins, leather shoes and many, many more additions.
Anderson’s response truthfully ruptured an era that envisioned escapism like never before, conforming a moderately amplified variance between subordinate lavishness and leading-edge sartorial novelty.
