Jonathan Anderson‘s message for spring-summer 2022 is the following: go out, go clubbing, go raving, dance, have fun! And we listen. Inspired by the joy of nightlife and the freedom of club culture, his ecstatic new collection for Loewe is shot by David Sims and presented in book alongside a sister publication featuring the work of artist Florian Krewer. This season, shapes are both abstract and straightforward, meanwhile colours explode in a riot of saturated hues, high octane neons and acrylic shades. Sports-inspired pragmatism meets fluid forms, setting a party-ready, swinging tone. It’s clear it’s the menswear season of delightful hedonism (just take a look at the cosmic hippies by Rick Owens) – a sort of post-lockdown revenge, with a spiritual, even esoteric twist.

I am an Instagram maniac and I openly confess that I spend too much time on filtering my feed. But it’s irresistible, when you have so many great accounts to follow! If you are ready for a dose of beautifully curated walls, inspiring photos and delightful shots – see my March recommendations!
@pwahduh / For Miuccia lovers, only. Brilliant page with archival Prada – ready to repost everything.
@celine / That’s not another fake account – it’s the real Céline. And no, don’t be surprised if you see two saucy sausages on a potato puree in your feed, cause that’s #comfortfood according to Phoebe. Love.
@kenzasadsad / Kenza is not your average French girl. Still, her posts are eternally chic – from moody regrams of young Tilda Swinton to great vintage finds, take a look at this beaut.
@m_magazine / When in Paris, nothing beats a free sample of M Le Magazine du Monde. An intelligent magazine looking thoroughly at fashion, culture and politics. Their editorials are superb, just like the one above starring Anna Ewers by Mario Sorrenti.
@davidsimsofficial / David Sims! Is on! Instagram! And he posts archival outtakes. Major.
@benjaminsallen / Prada model, polaroid lover, Lexi Boling’s boyfriend. Need more?

Hillier Bartley’s advertisement campaign photographed by David Sims.
Ladies & gentlemen, welcome Hillier Bartley – a new brand coming from the British designer duo, Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley. After closing the sister line of Marc Jacobs, MBMJ, these two truly unique personalities decided to open their new chapter in fashion! Firstly, in February, Hillier Bartley was quietly presented to few buyers; then, a mysterious Instagram account appeared. And now it is the time to see, what they are really up to – edgy, slightly decadent style that celebrates English tailoring with feminine twist. Warm wool coats, fringed bags, satin blouses and lady-like silk gowns – and all of that kept in a cool, quite nostalgic manner. No wonder why you can find Tracey Emin, David Bowie and Debbie Harry in the brand’s AW15 moodboard. Also, Hillier’s signature bunny motif appeared in the collection in form of adorable clutches.
The collection will be exclusively available at Matches from September 2nd.
