EVENT Jonathan Anderson for Loewe capsule collection preview cocktail
WHERE Loewe Store, Central
HAPPENINGS: Jonathan Anderson's much-anticipated capsule collection for Spanish luxury house Loewe has finally arrived, and socialites and celebrities flocked to Loewe's Central shop to check it out. The Central store was transformed into a gallery space, with Loewe's latest campaign posters adorning the walls and leather bags sitting on top of display cases.
We spotted expecting mum Ingrid Mandonnaud, who matched a flowing summer dress with a chic envelope clutch from the collection, while model Janet Ma opted for a minimalistic lemon-yellow clutch to go with her simple yet chic ensemble.
Guests mingled over Champagne and Spanish jamón canepés. Many took home some of Anderson's creations. The young British designer, who took over as creative director of the prestigious luxury house in October last year, is making waves at Loewe. His collection was inspired by the brand's archival pieces, which were reinterpreted for a contemporary lifestyle.
OVERHEARD I can't decide which one to get. Talk about first world problems!
CHIC CHAT with Janet Ma
Can you describe your style?
Simple, chic and true to myself.
How do you like the new capsule collection by Jonathan Anderson?
I love it. It's simple yet feminine.
Are you planning a summer trip with your family?
We don't have plans yet. There are five of us, and we all have our own schedule. It's difficult to plan a trip, especially since the children are all grown up.
Do you have any summer toning tips?
I do yoga twice a week.
