BAZAAR At Paris Fashion Week: Loewe Spring/Summer 2016

Our editor-in-chief Kenneth Goh's favourite picks from Loewe's Spring 2016 collection

Loewe SS16

With a plastic-wrapped UNESCO headquarters, everything looked sci-fi—protected from the elements in this concrete and stone edifice. The fashion rang true to the plastics with the first look exiting up the staircase sans skirt, with a plastic sheet wrapped tightly round the lithe model’s bottom half. The top part was a cool exploration of knitwear with Canadian Goose prints and embroidery. The collection came out fast and furious with lots of plastics in the form of new clutches and skirts, stripes of logo-ed words across wide trousers and silver strips of aluminium stripped from Christmas trees and now decorating in swirls across black long sleeved tops with matching skirts. Metallics dripped in gold flecks from new bracelets and gave movement and modernity to the collection. Leather was worked into tunics with imprints of bamboo heat transferred to the skin, resulting in beautiful art work running across the chest. Bags—the mainstay of the brand—were explored with Star Trek fonts splashed across Puzzles and Amazonas and cool clutches that every girl (and several guys!) will carry right into the 21st century.
