If there is one show what’s worth to wait for – after Phoebe Philo leaving of Céline -, that’s Jonathan Anderson’s Loewe. Full with modern, edgy ideas. Something she used to have to offer although a bit different, perhaps a bit less minimalistic and more artist-y in style. I’m not sure why Philo came to my mind first – looking at the runway photos once again -, but here we are, and I recon Hedi Slimane’s new accentless Celine has to do something with it as well. Anyhow…
“It’s free; it’s sensual; it’s satin; it’s a mass of textures. I feel this is what the brand is becoming—its DNA,” said Jonathan Anderson in his show debrief at Loewe. “I had the idea about people walking through a gallery space who are individuals but connected by a common thread.” See what I meant while saying artist-y? Doesn’t make too much sense but looks good nonetheless.
Of course the centre of the show, as always, was the bags and the designer used the word “totemic” to describe them: the idea of a bag, a small but precious artsy object, something what can says a lot to those who are in the know. Who wouldn’t want to own a Loewe handbag after all?
