INTO THE SAME IDEA… Marni and Loewe SS||2017

Gatherings and drawstrings were seen on various shows for SS||2017, but nowhere as beautiful as at Marni [left] and at Loewe [right]. Consuelo Castiglioni for Marni created asymmetries of pleats gathered by nautical ropes and over-did-it beautifully with huge billowy sleeves and hip-widening poacher-pocket bags, all in a fresh mint tone. Also Jonathan Anderson’s Loewe suggested a pastel colour for his peasant dress with balloon sleeves full of gathers created by drawstrings. A lot of volume, but more is more and less is a bore regarding the volumes this season.
