Paris: Jonathan Anderson began his first presentation at Loewe with the notion of lightening the brand up, modernizing the aesthetic and creating a more youthful appeal. A soft palette of neutrals paired with unexpected brights did just that. The British designer also focused on steering away from all things artificial explaining, “The idea of luxury has changed. You need things to look real.” As a result, he sent forth dresses, skirts and tee tops cut from patch-worked suede with raw edges creating organic surface interest. Anderson also believes that the luxury industry needs to keep up with the times and become faster paced. In an effort to achieve this, Anderson partnered with Net-A-Porter to sell a number of looks from this season’s collection the day of the show. –Deirdre Pérez
