Loewe‘s latest collection draws inspiration from British ceramicist William De Morgan, well known for his tiles based on medieval designs and Islamic patterns, as well as his fantastic creatures and floral arabesques. Here, we find his designs celebrated in an assortment of ready-to-wear garments, accessories, and charms for men and women.
Details are enlarged on coats and bags, while others are hand-stitched onto various scarves and knitwear. More playful pieces such as the woolen dragon’s tail and the horned knit beanie transform the wear into monsters themselves.
One of the standout pieces from the collection is a black leather jacket decorated with a crimson dodo on the back. Other items feature De Morgan’s drawings of peacock feathers and yellow flowers, depicted on bags and additional silhouettes. Women can take advantage of cushion totes, while military messenger bags and vertical totes are created for men.
“Each year we have tackled different Arts and Crafts heroes of mine,” says Jonathan Anderson. “For me it was a very natural process to do William De Morgan, he was a big collaborator in the Arts and Crafts movement and a true fantasist in that moment.”
