Reflected on black herringbone parquet, a collection of portrait miniatures is hung upon white walls inside the Maison de l’UNESCO for the Fall Winter 2019-20 LOEWE Women’s show by Jonathan Anderson.
Born from obsessions of scrutiny and perfection, the collection approaches personal significations of desire with laser focus.
Foregoing excess narrative, a singular conversation dictates the interaction between craft and silhouette.
Through fragments of iconography, a precise classicism throws the new curve of garments into sharp relief. Pigment shades of saffron, cerulean and vermillion break the uniformity of black, olive, navy, camel, ivory and wine.
The LOEWE accessories collection introduces the new Lantern opera bag in crocodile and calfskin, featuring an internal light and mirror construction in tribute to the 1950’s ‘Straeter Lite-On’. Scaled up and down, the Lazo handbag in shiny box calf appears in a new mini shape, whilst the Puzzle and Gate bags return in striped leather.
Music : Tom of England "Anna" from the upcoming "Sex Monk Blues" lp on L.I.E.S. Records
