Decorated with candy-striped ribbon and strewn with rainbow pom-poms, the Loewe headquarters on Place Saint-Sulpice in Paris is transformed into a naïve playground for the Men’s Spring Summer 2019 collection designed by Jonathan Anderson. In a second collaboration with American art photographer Duane Michals, the collection takes center stage at Casa Gallardo, a private home in Madrid, as eleven male protagonists perform in various states of dress. Michals tells an absurd narrative through handwritten titles– his spontaneous imagery conjuring up a variety show of timeless domestic heroes. The collection itself flits across time and space to illicit a boyish study of dressing up – where childhood memories haze with botanical and geometric motifs like sea urchins and stained glass, cowri shells and whelks, bandanas, and mythological lions.
