Loewe is well known for its exquisite leather pieces, and for next summer the label took the sport-luxe trend back to basics with an urban-inspired collection using suede and leather in burnt orange, soft khaki and the golden shade seen in the spring/summer 2012 Oro handbag collection. The urban slant was evident in the array of bra-lets, hooded tops and soft leather jackets. Tops were kept loose and casual, while the combined midi skirts were slender and sophisticated. To complete the look, models wore sturdy black leather platform gladiator sandals, which gave the collection a strong, tough feel. To end the show, Loewe introduced a small selection of colour-blended pieces and soft, sheer leopard-print items, showing that leather combined with translucent pattern can be sophisticated.
