Loewe Showed Pannier Wide-Hipped Dresses at PFW

Since Jonathan Anderson took over the reins at Loewe, he's brought new life to the Spanish brand. Accessories and leather goods have really taken off under the British designer, but it's his ready-to-wear where his ideas truly shine. At Loewe, his conceptual design sensibility melds with a crafty, artisanal touch, an essential element of the 170+ year-old company's DNA. For Spring 2020, he incorporated an aristocratic approach to the clothes seen in the intricate lace frocks. Wide-hipped panniers recall the traditional court dresses of 17th century Spain, which nod to the brand's origins in Madrid. Here's everything else you need to know about the collection.

Cold Shoulder

Among the daywear options included lace tunics and netted halter tops that exposed the collarbone and shoulders.

Romantic Lace

The standout pieces of the collection were arguably the sheer lace dresses that covered the entire body. Wide-hipped pannier versions in lavender and yellow lace also stole the show.

Pointy Collars

Collars were exaggerated to show a super pointed, spread shape that reached all the way past the shoulders.

Handkerchief Hems

Lightweight dresses moved with the models thanks to their voluminous shapes and layered handkerchief hems that floated effortlessly on the runway.

Crafty Coats

The outerwear consisted of streamlined double-breasted coats and single-breasted car coats in two-tone color blocking, high-low tails, and fitted waists.
