Emerging New York Label Lourdes Reveals SS21 "Divine Intervention" Lookbook
Designer Andreas Aresti finds inspiration from the “new normal” for his latest collection.
Lourdes, a New York-based brand loved for its striking multi-pocketed jeans, has debuted its second season of womenswear goods through a collection titled “Divine Intervention.” The lineup takes inspiration from the 2020 reality, where we have found ourselves “frozen in time for months.”
Founded by designer Andreas Aresti based on his experience with names like Gypsy Sport and Kanye West, Lourdes made its debut early this year at Paris Fashion Week. The creative has become a name to watch in the world of fashion as he was revealed to be working on the relaunch of Hood By Air with Shayne Oliver. Named after Aresti’s mother, the brand reflects Aresti’s personal style translated onto items like leather goods, skirts and silk dresses.
This time around for its second season, Lourdes adds onto its signature aesthetic with deconstructed garments. A blue branded T-shirt is transformed into a wrapped skirt, while the label’s logo contrasts a bold green jersey in white lettering. A cropped long-sleeved tee sports a shirt collar at the hem to create a reversed look, while jeans are dressed with multiple pockets running down the legs.
Elsewhere, a muted deer print highlights the range on a pair of cut-out stirrup leggings and a puffer jacket. “The fawn represents two concepts: The first is that it’s a creature that symbolizes innocence… The second is this idea of pure stillness. When a hunter is hunting, the breath slows down,” Aresti explains the meaning behind the statement pattern in a press release.
