Last week saw the opening of Disobedient Bodies at the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery in West Yorkshire. It’s curated by Jonathan Anderson (of J.W.Anderson and Loewe fame) and looks at the parallels in how fashion and art treat the human figure.
It sounds incredible, with pieces from the Hepworth Wakefield collection alongside iconic fashion examples from the likes of Christian Dior and Comme des Garcons. If you want a clue to how Anderson manages to juggle his many responsibilities, I can make a suggestion. Obsession seems to be the common thread to all his pursuits and I think that’s what keeps him going.
I spoke to him about this and his personal art collection in an interview for Sothebys.com. You can read it here.

Craft is trending for SS17 (or is it AW16?) and I don’t just mean complex embroideries and hand tooled leathers. Although, yes, those too. More that designers are celebrating all manner of craft and makers, in particular two of LFW’s most important designers,Christopher Bailey at Burberry and J.W.Anderson’s Jonathan Anderson. (more…)
Just landed in store, these new Loewe fragrances look beautiful. I love the understated bottles and the packaging, which features botanical photography by German artist Karl Blossfeldt and elegant wooden bottletops. (more…)
Jonathan Anderson’s new-look Loewe has has rave reviews so far, with its reworked logo, ad campaign and SS15 menswear all giddily received by the critics. For spring-summer 2015, Anderson’s inspiration came from pre-rave Ibiza references so it’s heavy on rustic-looking but luxurious fabrics and simple, bohemian shapes (given Anderson’s ultra-modern ambi-sexual treatment).
