Loewe FW21 - Clothing as Therapy
It’s an ongoing theory that wearing bright colours and print has the ability to lift one’s mood, and this season Jonathan Anderson put himself to test out this theory with a collection that did just that. In these dire, pandemic driven times, the creative director set out to create a collection with pieces that aimed to give one a “clothing high.” This ranged from colourful zigzag prints, avant-garde silhouettes and embellishments and lots of colourful accessories. Anderson crafted bold looks of moon shaped sleeves, yellow nappa leather coats and royal blue suede pant suits to act as an elixir to general pandemic mood , “I don’t see this as a collection about fantasy. I think it’s about this idea of projecting what a new reality will hopefully be. I think fashion is going to be important in the next while, in making people gain the confidence of going back out and dressing up again. The whole point of this collection is: Believe it, and it will happen,” he explained in an interview . As fun as the collection was , it was equally well crafted with innovative couture-like techniques and tailoring that give an extra push of opulence to the women who wear it while simultaneously raising the mood.
