Paris, March 5 (EFE) .- With or without coronavirus, next autumn-winter will be full of colors. This is how the firms Loewe and Issey Miyake defended it this Friday on the Paris catwalk, where they opted for graphic prints, psychedelic colors and comfortable silhouettes.
Loewe bets in Paris to experiment and get out of black and white
At the presentation of its autumn-winter 2021/2022 collection, which took place virtually within the framework of Paris Fashion Week, the Spanish firm Loewe showed an electric collection, saturated with color and shape, and with exaggerated silhouettes .
Its creative director, the British Jonathan Anderson, went beyond the palette of natural colors to which he is accustomed to juxtapose explosive tones, going through yellow, green or blue, which are superimposed on a base of whites.
Padded coats, long tailored jackets and cropped trousers were the structure of the collection, which also featured draped dresses with gigantic brooches and embroidery, men’s equestrian coats and, of course, the leather garments that can never be missing from the wardrobe. Loewe.
The line, feminine and imposing in its rounded silhouettes, with puffy sleeves and long dresses, contrasted with men’s shoes: two-color ankle boots and platform loafers, which break the harmony to create subversive outfits.
A collection to “empower” women, as explained by Anderson in the video, where he noted that working on this color therapy collection and turning the fantasy of clothing into reality has been “great.”
For its part, the Japanese firm Issey Miyake chose a more minimalist presentation based on comfortable garments, wide silk blouses and wide pants, in a collection that broke the simplicity of straight black garments with graphic prints.
Comfort prevailed in pajama-style clothing, with “oversize” dresses with cape sleeves that contrasted with coats, with a rough and military look.
The collection was enlivened by several introductions of yellow and aqua green, which colored, for example, a flowing and mid-length trench coat.
Interesting was also Miyake’s commitment to playing with the classicism of the raincoat, which he turned into a set of trousers and jacket in earth tones.
