Loewe Fall 2018

Before my 20th birthday, I began to muse on what I wanted 20 to feel like. One of the things I was especially committed to was giving my wardrobe a bit of a revamp. Like most teens, the ages of 13-19 were a time of style exploration. I went from sweet and sunny (wannabe) Hollister model to 90s throwback queen to monochromatic minimalism vis-a-vis Oak and Fort. By the time I was in university, I was exhausted and just wanted to wear jeans and a t-shirt! But I'm tired of all that. I want to wear things that express who I am and what I feel--no matter how nebulous that is. I want clothes that enable my intense desire for comfort and still make me feel exceptionally sexy. Enter Loewe's collection for Fall 2018. Disclaimer: It's been a long time since I've been excited by an ENTIRE collection, so when I say that Loewe is a game changer you know that's MAJAH! What stood out to me the most was the use of leather--from the oversized coats to the minute detailing on dresses. This season has seen a lot of leather looks that are channeling the Matrix or some other 80s futuristic reference so Jonathan Anderson's different take was refreshing. The collection was bold and elegant, and looked like it was made for women not mannequins. That's not an easy thing to do but Anderson makes it look effortless.
