LOEWE Fall Winter 2021 Women runway collection is 45 looks filled with visually saturated statements in shape and color with no better term to describe than electric.

A press release for the collection describes it as, “An exploded palette of bright, acrylic hues is juxtaposed in graphic compositions then mapped into abstract silhouettes that swing around the body, drape all over it and sprout out of it. The sheer joy of fashion-making is harnessed to convey an idea of dressing up as an audacious art, marking a point of departure towards new grounds.”

Since they couldn’t have a real runway show, LOEWE creative director Jonathan Anderson come up with the idea of producing a newspaper with the headline, “The LOEWE Show Has Been Cancelled,” dispersed in tin boxes as a sort of time capsule for the time we’re living in. Inside the boxes are also de-embossed print’s on leather and a letter opener including writings by Danielle Steel.

The collection focuses on draping with draped tops and dresses and plays with sleeves that are graphic while soft. Pieces are geometric and fluid with a strong psychedelic influence to it in what Anderson calls, “color therapy,” adding excitement from how drab the world may seem nowadays. Jeweled brooches are a part of almost every piece and abstract sleeves are the highlights of the collection, looking like modern sculptures a part of blanket-like draped oversized coats.

Other highlights are the bags. The XL Flamenco clutch comes in bright hues while displaying leather in its rawest form. The Goya bag is a structured statement piece as a pop of bold color. And the Amazon bag, first launched in 1975 and one of LOEWE’s signature pieces, is a nappa calfskin and Anagram jacquard variations. The last bag is a knotted and twisted bracelet bag that is a bracelet that can turn into a bag. The collection also displays two shoe styles, one a blown up abstraction of men’s shoes with platforms and the other a buckled shoe inspired by the 17th and 18th centuries.
