Balenciaga and Loewe spring summer 2016 fashion show

 

Yesterday Alexander Wang orchestrated his final runway show for Balenciaga. Over at Loewe Jonathan Anderson offered up his reflections on nature and artificiality.

An all-white collection: that was the challenge Alexander Wang set himself last night with his last runway show at Balenciaga. The American designer imagined the perfect symbiosis between the delicacy of Balenciaga and his own style. For both night and day, his attire combined Calais laces with sporty fishnet, fanny packs over silk dresses and embroidered slippers. The mark of Cristobal Balenciaga was reflected in the dresses and trapeze coats, the basque tops and the butterfly sleeves. Guests of honour Suki Waterhouse, Zoe Kravitz and Nicola Peltz all walked the runway amidst newer faces.

 

Jonathan Anderson continues with the approach he’s taken since arriving as head of Loewe in autumn 2013. For spring-summer 2016, this visionary blast of fresh air was embodied in the theme of nature. Shadows of wild geese reflected in smashed mirror pieces and cellophane inserts, while bamboo buttons and belts shake up shirts and asymmetric overcoats. This new cult of nature is accompanied by a perfect mastery of artifice, whether it’s materials, colours or layering.
