More than any other fashion capital city, the Paris fashion week seems to focus on recreating a connection between fashion and art, fashion and culture. Of course, we get dressed to go to the office and we want to be comfortable, but fashion is more than that, Jonathan Anderson seems to suggest with the Loewe Fall 2020, which has made it a personal mission. Dress to impress, it is more or less the motto of the house, from next autumn onwards.We are not, however, talking about exaggerated dresses, but rather about chic looks, sought after in their simplicity, full of hidden meanings, visible only by those who gets to the heart of things.
We are speaking here of imaginative silhouettes, in the sense that they challenge the surrounding landscape and project themselves into an abstract discourse on fashion, which however is inextricably linked to the materiality of clothes. Geometries are dominant in shapes, colours and cuts. The materials are equally incredible, from the light blue brocade dress to the simpler camel coat – which is extra in volume thanks to the fur sleeves too. Modern art and contemporary art, but also a pinch of history (in clothes with shaped hips for example) and a very vast artistic background. Loewe improves with each collection and we can’t wait to see the next developments.
