Paris Fashion Week | In Love with Loewe
We arrive to the Loewe venue bright and early on a cold, rainy Friday morning. The concrete Unesco building is a perfect contradiction to the warm and peaceful decor of Loewe runway show which is in smaller rooms instead of one long catwalk. The feeling is comfortable and warm..cue the the artificial fireplace in the center of the ivory ottoman seating.
Jonathan Anderson wants to take out the noise for this collection…and that is just what he did. Diversity in the Fall 2018 collection made it loved by all. It is the show and buzz of the week.
Loewe, (pronounced Low-e-v-e) is a very pedigreed old house. Started in 1846 in Madrid, Spain the fashion house was not only known for its incredible elegance and refinement, but also for its use of quality leathers like lambskin, crocodile, iguana and snakeskin. From 1996 to 1997, the design house celebrated its 150th anniversary, was acquired by LVMH and presented the Loewe women’s ready-to-wear collection designed by Narciso Rodriguez in Paris.

Unfortunately, I completely forgot my Loewe look back home so I came up with a new look on the fly. I paired a caramel leather Zeynep Arcay jumpsuit with a Victoria Beckman ivory blouse, which I felt was kismet and celebrated the energy of Loewe.
Love this quote from Jonathan “classicism is always there…sometimes you change the cover and make it relevant for today.”
