Fabulously Eccentric. Loewe AW21

Last season, Jonathan Anderson went for a small collection of ‘un-commercial’, couture-esque dresses and full skirts. For autumn-winter 2021, his Loewe has more of the ‘ready-to-wear’ aspect, yet it still has that signature, fabulously-eccentric-lady style. It’s all about bold colours and mood-changing zigzaggy prints here; the curiosity of avant-garde shapes; perfectly placed, succulently colorful accessories; and what Danielle Steel is feeling about fashion. Say what? Go to Loewe’s website, and there, to be sure, you’ll hear the world’s best-selling novelist in a podcast with Anderson. This is “the ‘why not?’ era,” she remarks. “I’m much more into fun things now…. I like silly stuff. I guess I get more eccentric as I get older…. Life is serious enough!” The collaboration with Steel came about through Anderson’s connection with her daughter Vanessa Traina. In a continuation of his printed-matter lockdown show alternatives, he came up with a Loewe newspaper, within which is a trail of the first chapter of Steel’s new novel, The Affair. Neatly enough, it’s a tale about a New York fashion editor in chief. The paper, with all the pictures of the Loewe collection, is “being distributed to a million readers” including readers of The New York Times, Le Monde, and Le Figaro. In other words, it’s time to embrace the fun and euphoria of fashion again – or at least to be able to imagine ourselves into the time when we can. “As much as people always see the cynical in luxury fashion, there’s something in it that releases endorphins that make you feel good,” Anderson said in a Zoom call with Vogue. For the shoot, he rolled out the yellow carpet in Paris at the Le Train Bleu restaurant, his own office at Loewe, and a private members’ club off the Champs-Élysées. Elaborate settings for Anderson’s skilled composition of bold silhouettes, his subtly wearable pieces and a gamut of bags and shoes that deliver quirk to the adventurous and classicism to the conservative. “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,” he said. “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.”

Rose of No Man’s Land

zoom

Ben Gorham of Byredo is not only the founder of New York’s favourite perfume brand, but also a person with great aesthetic. Byredo’s fragrance bottles look always chic with their minimal labels and metaphorical names of the scents – and the latest fragrance, called Rose of No Man’s Land, is going to be their new best-selling product. The title of the perfume is a tribute to the nurses who saved thousands of lives on the front lines of WWI – and what’s interesting, the soldiers used to refer to the nurses as Rose of No Man’s Land. The scent of the perfume is sophicated, but smooth – the composition is mainly based on pink pepper, turkish rose petals, raspberry blossom and papyrus. The advertisement campaign is as refreshing as the perfume itself – natural, make-up free Freja Beha photographed by Craig McDean and M/M Paris.

Inez & Vinoodh X Frame Denim

Frame Denim is a cool brand which specializes in jeans and rock’n’roll attitude-filled clothes. Following the footsteps of Karlie Kloss who designed jeans for long-legged girls, the dutch photographers Inez & Vinoodh have turned their hand to denim design, collaborating with Frame on a capsule collection. The British brand gave Inez & Vinoodh free hand to design a collection for women and men, in array of blues and black in skinny cuts. The mood? Think rock androgyny, slim cuts, small black pockets and little IV initials embroidered. The campaign, unveiled in rock’n’roll chic campaign shot by Inez & Vinoodh themselves, is starred by models Freja Becha Erichsen and guitarist Paul Ritchie. We already want to put our hand on them… and you? The capsule collection is going to be available from August at net-a-porter.com, Barney’s and Colette.
