Two years ago, I had the opportunity to interview Jonathan William Anderson about his collaboration with Topshop. Fast forward to 2014 and he’s a creative force behind Versace Versus and also recently appointed creative director of Spanish leather brand, Loewe.
I’m not sure if he’s also behind Loewe’s latest campaign image, which pays homage to the brand’s heritage (above, left). But I think this campaign image is beautiful. At a glance, you get an overview of how the brand has evolved since their inception in 1846.
Jonathan Anderson’s first collection for Loewe recently debut on the runway with a very strong opening look – sand tanned hides draped into an asymmetrical drape dress, which really harks back to the brand’s roots in leather and yet has a refreshingly new interpretation of how the material can be used. Granted the look is quite avant garde, but what a statement it makes.
The second look (all-black) is much more up my alley but I like the overall direction he’s taking the brand in.
And ahead of the Spring/Summer 2015 drop, Net-A-Porter.com has launched an exclusive 5-piece collection available for purchase now.
Here are my three favourite pieces from the capsule.
