Loewe turned more than few heads when a couple of its models sashayed down the ramp in clothes that were pixelated. These looked like straight out of Minecraft, in fact.
When you look at takes from Loewe, you need to shut your eyes sooner than you know. While the stuff is fun, the images do leave a lot of strain on the eyes. And now this concept has found way to the Paris Fashion Week too.
More about the digital style clothes
While the show has always been about designer fare and someone who very much can’t afford the clothes and top end designers, the designs this time brought in unreal imagery into the tangible world of fashion. At the outset, your eyes might not even trust that such designs exist for real. The offerings are in metaverse, on lines of Meta feverish for making digital clothes happen. As per the company’s stuff available so far—collabs with Balenciaga, Prada and Thom Browne aren’t happening. In fact, the full focus has been on this collection that forms part of the company’s street wear line.
With the rendering in pixels for the 3D space, these clothes from Loewe managed to cause more than a stir. As to how Loewe even managed to design and make these clothes akin to Minecraft IRL, the outer edges seem to give the answer. These seem to be stiff and have this jagged pattern that helps to create the pixelated effect. The pants that these models wore are traditional, come with a baggy silhouette that are filled with pixelated print. The overall effect is that of the wearer’s body dissolving. No deets are available on the price front yet.
