Loewe's "Completely Hysterical" SS22 Collection Is All About Experimentation

Exaggerated proportions and eccentric footwear dominate the runway.

For the Spring/Summer 2022 season, creative director Jonathan Anderson uncovered the world of Renaissance painter Pontormo in Loewe‘s newest silhouettes.

Described as “neurotic, psychedelic, completely hysterical,” the house’s latest collection experiments with draping, sculpting and color. Coats and dresses are seen incorporated with metal plates, while denim pieces boast exaggerated proportions. Elsewhere, select sequin dresses with flounces feature a more playful take on an ordinary thigh slit. Continuing the artistic theme, other designs arrive in the form of sculptural dresses and wing-like capes that evoke “erotic manga characters,” as per the show notes.

Pumps and sandals have been given a quirky twist — heels come in ready-made shapes such as soap bars, candles, eggs, a nail polish bottle and a rose. The Flow sneaker has been reworked with compostable plastic and now exposes the feet. Meanwhile, accessories include the draped Goya long clutch, the Flamenco crafted from teddy bear fabric, the Luna bag and the Hammock Nugget boasting new proportions.

Peep all the looks from the collection above and watch Loewe’s SS22 show at Paris Fashion Week below.
