British Ceramist William de Morgan was renowned for his arts and crafts tile design. Now his fantastic creatures and floral arabesques are celebrated in this Loewe x Willam de Morgan collection of Ready-to-Wear, accessories and charms for both men and women.
‘Each year we have tackled different Arts and Crafts heroes of mine,’ says creative director Jonathan Anderson. ‘For me it was a very natural process to do William De Morgan, he was a big collaborator in the Arts and Crafts movement and a true fantasist in that moment.’
Loewe’s seasonal collection this year is inspired by British ceramicist William De Morgan (1839-1917) and follows in the footsteps of previous capsules based on Arts and Crafts masters William Morris and Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
In keeping with the Arts and Crafts creed of experimentation, the collection showcases a range technical craft processes, including leather marquetry, hand embroidery and thickly layered weaves. De Morgan’s illustrations are reimagined in new mediums, details are exaggerated, and certain garments remake the wearer as the creature itself. This is a collection in which the imagination is set free and the magical is blended with the everyday.
