Loewe looks into the archives of artist William Morris

If medievalism-meets-punk is the name of your party game, then Loewe’s latest capsule ought to be your go-to this festive season. The Spanish house obtained special access to the archives of 19th century British textile designer, artist and writer William Morris, from which creative director Jonathan Anderson selected four original prints, specifically: Forest, Acanthus, Honeysuckle, and the famous Strawberry Thief.

Created between 1874 and 1883, the striking wallpaper and fabric prints are reinterpreted and transposed onto an exclusive range of apparel and accessories, including the signature Puzzle and Hammock bags. The nature-inspired motifs are also juxtaposed against a punk aesthetic, as recurring bright orange details and bleached denim items reference the master craftsman’s vocabulary in an abstract manner. The collaboration culminates in a black napa biker jacket printed with an enchanting fox extracted from Morris’ Forest print.

The collection was shot at Standen House, a historic national trust property in West Sussex, England, whose interior is decorated with many of the artist’s carpets, fabrics and wallpapers. It’s a doubling-down on all things Morris, allowing fans who’re unaware of the legend’s oeuvre to get a sense of his aesthetic and appreciate how Anderson has interpreted his patterns for contemporary fashion.
