Questioning the facade of the introvert, the LOEWE Women’s Fall Winter 2018 collection designed by creative director Jonathan Anderson inhabits a pensive space where the organic meets the industrial. Disrupted by decadent moments of primitivism, austerity reigns – as shapes nod to the mid-century shifted through a contemporary lens.
Embracing LOEWE tradition, leather is worked as both surface and adornment. Smooth topstitched calfskin imposes structure on cotton plissé dresses, is spliced through lace, or falls in vertical panels down soft smocks and trousers. Flared coats and capes create ample volume in flat gabardine, plush shearling, or raw-cut optical jacquard.
