Elongation, gesture and an exploration of fabrication turn the straightforward into something not so straightforward, the subtle into the bold. Blazers, coats, banker shirts, knitted polos, twin-sets, argyle knits, jeans and chinos are what the collection consists of. Such apparent plainness deceives the eye, but it is twisted and turned. Crystals swarm over entire surfaces, like filters, or meticulously drawn stripes and pinstripes. Gestural cuts turn the body into a construction. Shoes grow into trousers, giving the impression of cloth coming out of the ground.
As ever for LOEWE, the power of the unexpected act turns things around. Tops like giant swatches of fabric, pins included. Accessories that become pieces of clothing. A crystal hummingbird on a shredded brocade top and crystal-embellished sunglasses.
A cerebral palette of soft pastels, and solid blues, black, khakis.
Round-toe Chelsea boots and sandals, ballet shoes, oversized bags such as the suede Pebble bucket and Puzzle Fold totes add further elements to the study on proportions.
