It’s no secret that the Loewe show is always one of the most hotly-anticipated collections of Paris Fashion Week. Between the star-studded line-up of celebrities, models and of course friends of the House who are always in attendance, and the masterclass in surrealism that emerges from the mind of creative director, Jonathan Anderson, and presents itself on the runway; Loewe knows how to put on a show. Unsurprisingly, spring summer 24 was no exception.
Held inside the historic castles of Esplanade Saint-Louis, Loewe continued its ongoing collaboration with artist Lynda Benglis, showcasing a group of monumental bronze sculptures as part of the show setting. The six large-scale sculptures were crafted in a range of surfaces—from polished bronze to a matte black patina—reflecting the light on the runway in dramatically different ways. An artistic connection that spoke perfectly to the collection's honouring of silhouettes, Loewe and Anderson once again showcased a holistic offering that had all of Paris Fashion Week talking. Take a look at some of our favourite looks from the collection, below.
What were the standout looks from the Loewe Spring Summer 2024 collection?
As mentioned, Loewe spring summer 24 was about reducing fashion to the silhouette, focusing on the outline, playing with the sections and altering the proportions. Anderson's latest collection was really all about creating perspective in the everyday wardrobe; a concept we saw specifically through the exaggeration of 'tall and vertical. Blazers, coats, blouses, v-neck jumpers, cardigans, jeans, trousers. Long legs, waists moving high, a compact bust.
“I believe there is a real authenticity with the brand. I think because there are no luxury brands in Spain I feel there is a need for us to be honest," shared Anderson during a media briefing after the show. “I am very into daywear and the idea of clothes for our everyday."
In many ways, Loewe spring summer 24 was Anderson's rebellion against uptight dressing. Textural knits: short chunky jumpers; long capes that encase the body, dilated pullovers that flow around it. Leather as tailored outer skin: sleek coats that can be flipped under the arm on one side, like a bag; T-shirts and shorts with chewed hems.
Where accessories were concerned, the House's new Squeeze bag was front and centre, imagined in mellow nappa, while the round toe silhouette we have come to love from Loewe was seen again in the shoe offering.
On the collection, RUSSH editor-in-chief Jess Blanch shared, "I especially loved all the cardigans and knits. They were adorned with gold buttons, some super oversized, that felt very bourgeoise and vintage."
"The pant silhouette came with a super high waist and tailored along the thighs, with a voluptuous slouch at the ankle. The jeans were cut the same way. Lean and languid with volume at the floor," she continued.
