THE LOEWE PAULA’S IBIZA SS’22 COLLECTION IS A HEDONISTIC VISION OF FREE-SPIRITED JOY
Before the disruption of the pandemic came into the scene, Ibiza was the place to be. Especially if you like your (day and) nights to look like a Hollywood montage of a partying scene. This is where the world goes to have fun. The island of escapism and hedonism, there’s a reason why it’s coined as the endless party destination. Here, identity and freedom are explored with a carefree attitude.
And it is this same spirit that Loewe lovingly explores in Paula’s Ibiza SS’22 Collection — the fifth iteration of a free-spirited and joyful collection with an explosion of colours, prints and attitude. From crocheted and sequined ready-to-wear pieces to accessories adorned with marquetry cocktail motifs, the collection is a diverse hedonistic vision that encapsulates the bohemian soul of Paula’s Ibiza. This is a parallel world where everything is possible.
In a video produced by ELLE Singapore, it’s sun’s out, best ‘fits out with the Paula’s Ibiza SS’22 collection. Take a look here:
Here, shapes are relaxed and uncomplicated. The body is celebrated — as it should be — and the skin peeks through short hems, lacing and cut-outs. The illusion of nothing is still something, as we all know. Paula’s Ibiza staples are given a makeover. Dresses and tops come in all over sequins. Casual shirts are made in silk. A crafty element comes in the form of crochet, artisanal fabric crafted in Japan, and colourful overdyeing on faded denim. As Loewe will have us know, everything, literally everything, including tube dresses and tops, can be exchanged between men and women. After all, this is the freedom that Ibiza is all about.
Accessories carry the same playful and colourful vibrancy. Think sequined platform mules that condense the idea of sparkle and party, ombrè colour recalling the psychedelic sunsets of Ibiza leaving its mark on iconic styles such as Puzzle, Hammock, Amazona and Goya. Woven straw and raffia are the main stories when it comes to the Paula’s Ibiza accessory offer, and even in these, colour is not forgotten. Small leather goods are also spotted with marquetry cocktail motifs, and denim — as seen in the Flamenco clutch and the Anagram gets a Canadian tuxedo facelift.
