Loewe, the luxury fashion house known for its avant-garde designs, has just launched its SS24 women’s runway collection. With a focus on reducing fashion to its core elements and playing with proportions, the collection presents a unique perspective on contemporary daywear. The silhouette takes center stage, while details and textures add depth and sensuality to each garment.
The collection features a range of wardrobe staples, including blazers, coats, blouses, v-neck jumpers, cardigans, jeans, and trousers. The emphasis is on tall and vertical designs, creating a streamlined and elegant look. Long legs and high waists elongate the figure, while pockets and slits allow for movement and individual expression. In terms of color palette, the collection sticks to muted tones of camel, grey, brown, and black, with pops of red, bougainvillea, and tangerine adding vibrant accents.
One of the highlights of the collection is the use of textural knits. Short chunky jumpers, long capes, and flowing pullovers add a touch of coziness and warmth. Leather is also incorporated as tailored outer skin, with sleek coats and T-shirts featuring unique details like flipped sides and chewed hems.
But what truly sets this collection apart are the unexpected and transformative elements. Tops adorned with sparkly brooches, feathers, and oversized pins add a touch of whimsy.
Accessories are also an integral part of the SS24 collection. Loewe presents a variety of shoe silhouettes, including round-toe designs, pointy mules, ergonomic shoes, and schoolboy shoes. Buckles play with scale, adding visual interest to the footwear. Handcrafted bags in butter-soft leathers serve as luxurious punctuation marks in this reductionist fashion story. The Squeeze bag, known for its squishy handle, is made from mellow nappa leather, while the Pebble Bucket bag features distinctive pebble-shaped hardware and comes in smooth and soft grained calf options.
Moreover, Loewe continues its collaboration with artist Lynda Benglis, showcasing a group of monumental bronze sculptures alongside the runway presentation. Benglis, a prodigious sculptor, has consistently pushed the boundaries of art with her innovative use of materials such as polyurethane, latex, paper, and bronze. The sculptures selected for the SS24 collection are enlarged versions of her clay sculptures called Elephant Necklace. Through enlargement, the dynamic forms become even more striking, with different finishes and textures capturing and reflecting light in unique ways.
