I have a feeling it is going to be my favorite collection of the season.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a high quotient of luxury carried out within such a brutal vocabulary. I connected to Anderson’s mashup of sterility and New Age. The presentation was beautiful, but totally sinister…which I love. LOL.
That being said, I’m distraught but not confused at J.W. Anderson and Ashley Brokaw’s casting for Loewe. Anderson’s womenswear debut for the house made it clear that he is not comfortable pushing the beauty envelope outside of near-total whiteness. There were a three models of color (maybe four?), which is a let-down for a designer as rigorous and forward-thinking as J.W. Anderson. In general, his collections make me feel understood—like I’ve got some kind of champion in the fashion world who knows what I’m about and is making clothes that speak directly to my sensibilities. I feel like he could so easily extend that to his casting and be an even bigger force of affirmation, but in this case he did not. His casting cheapened his clothes. Where was Emely Monteiro? Where was Binx? Sherita Dehon or Juana Berga would have been great for this show, or even Mae Lapres.
On Tumblr, I follow a lot of great people who love great clothes. We’re frustrated, because the clothes we relate to most often wind up on bodies we relate to the least..,and the weird thing is that I feel like there’s money here! Fashion is a business! I know I want to buy clothes made my people whose hearts and minds I feel are in the right place. I can’t be alone in that, can I?
