Publication No.18 FW18 Men
LOEWE FW18 Men collection draws upon a masculinity, where smoke and mirrors are sidestepped to approach archetypal items refined through the LOEWE lens of craft and material development. A muted palette of umber and moss tones denotes the great outdoors, as new leather nishes create burnished patinas and a corduroy effect.
Classical outerwear shapes are crafted in ne shearlings and Melton wool checks, patch-worked together or constructed with exposed seams. Rugby lacing and a varsity LOEWE logo appear as timeless boyish motifs, whilst an obsession with talismans provokes concentrated adornment as miniature terracotta pottery and rows of knots in rope and twine.
Publication No.17 SS18 Women
Photographed at Paris’ Maison de l’UNESCO, Publication #17 showcases the house’s ready-to-wear Spring Summer 18 Women’s collection by Jonathan Anderson featuring double self-portraits of Fumiko Imano alongside Dutch model Saskia de Brauw.
Fumiko Imano’s practice focuses on self-portraiture across photography, video and installation. Her ‘Twins’ series is a reaction to settling in Hitachi, Japan, after spending her childhood in Brazil and early adulthood in London and Paris. Feeling alone, Imano began to cut and paste 35mm self-portraits to create seemingly-candid collages of herself in the company of an imaginary twin sister.
This exclusive comission by LOEWE follows the publication of ‘We Oui!’, Fumiko Imano’s latest book, published by Little Man Gallery to international acclaim.
